And always focuses on the one thing he got mostly right with the travel restriction to china.  Of course ignoring all he got wrong.

Granted, that would be a colossal list of things to keep track of.

You guys remember that show on Comedy Central, probably 15-20 years ago, about some intern type kid following around Gary Busey?  I would pay more in taxes so hard to see some similar style show with Trump during his White House years

Thanks.  That explains it.  It is absolutely terrifying that the president's main adviser is Fox news. 

And yet when you challenge many of his supporters about how Fox News gets so many facts wrong you get the old “who says I listen to Fox News” . Like they have some other source that is much more accurate that backs what the President is doing and saying

Interesting in that while they deny watching it,  they all repeat the Fox talking points and memes word-for-word.

Seriously we have a president making snarky comments about Mitt Romney getting or not getting the virus on Twitter and we are expecting him to be the voice of reason.  Get the #### out of here

If nothing else, Trump is consistent at deflection, distraction, and blame of others. Too bad it's not helping anyone at all.

Anyone have an exact quote? It’s being reported that Trump expressed sarcastic joy at the news that Mitt Romney tested negative for the virus. 

This is the man that 50% of Americans think is doing a good job right now.

No that was a couple of days ago. There was a tweet just now. 

"This is really great news! I am so happy I can barely speak. He may have been a terrible presidential candidate and an even worse U.S. Senator, but he is a RINO, and I like him a lot!"*

It's helping him. His approval ratings and odds of reelection have actually gone up the last couple of days.

And to Trump, that's all that matters.

Everyone wants to get back to work ASAP but there is this little pandemic thing that we need to get under control first, moron.  Nobody gives a crap about you.

It looks as though Trump tweeted at an account that is not actually GM and told them to open a plant that GM doesn't even own anymore.

If he really wanted this to happen, he could invoke the DPA and order them to do so.  Seems like he just wants to trash talk instead.

I’m so done with this guy. I was willing to give him a chance at first, but he has far surpassed my worst expectations.

I’m nowhere near Democrats in the vast majority of positions. I think Biden and Sanders are both awful choices. I will vote for one of them over Trump in the next election because he is beyond incompetent and clearly only cares about himself. I don’t agree with Biden and Sanders on just about every way they think government should handle things, but I at least have faith that both of them actually want to do what they think is best for the country which is something I can not say about our current President.

I don’t know. Let’s assume yes. If yes, are you suggesting the government can publicly direct GM to take certain actions that may be contrary to their fiduciary duties to their shareholders?

You're assuming he actually wants ventilators made. It's just as likely that this is simply his escape hatch from responsibility later: "It's not my fault! I told GM and Ford to make ventilators!"*

*Disclaimer: Not yet an actual quote, but when it is, FoxNews will headline it, along with condemnations of GM and Ford for not manufacturing 1,000,000 ventilators within 24 hours of Trump's rant.

When I was a little kid, before the Internet, I thought computers worked by typing what you wanted at the DOS prompt and it would happen.  For example, just type in Double Dragon and seconds later it appear ready to play.  Trump seems to think factories work the same way I thought computers did.

Whether the government owns stock or not, it most certainly can direct GM and Ford to start making ventilators, via the DPA.  So far, Mr. Trump has chosen not to direct them to do so.

Wayne county turnout is crucial. If they get to the polls, Biden will crush it. Win that plus Macomb, the rest of the state can do whatever they want.

Grand Rapids & the Lakeshore are a lost cause; the last time my home county went to a Democrat was ‘64. No, the other one - George McClellan in 1864.

Such Fake reporting by the @nytimes, @washingtonpost, @CNN & others. They use a small portion of a sentence out of a full paragraph in order to demean. They really are corrupt and disgusting. No wonder the media is, according to polls, record setting low & untrusted. #MAGA

So much of the Lamestream Media is writing and broadcasting stories with facts that are made up and knowingly wrong. They are doing it by quoting unnamed sources that simply do not exist. These are very dangerous & corrupt people, who will do anything to win. NAME YOUR SOURCES!

 

Um, if they named sources within your administration, they would no longer be sources because their employment would be immediately terminated.
