Trump only wants panic which helps his agenda.
“This is only a test…in the event of an emergency, it would have been ridiculed and declared a hoax…this is only a test…” (…to see how many Americans are truly paying attention in November!)
Ironic. Yesterday a test of our German alert systems failed quite miserably. Especially the ones which should put warnings on our mobile phones.So I looked at my mobile and didn’t even see something like the message in the cartoon.
I hit “Dismiss” and got a screen for the Trump Re-election Committee requesting a minimum $250.00 contribution. Are all iPhones made in China ? Do they have phones for Biden? s/
That ‘panic’ excuse is about as lame as they come. I look for something better in a day or two.
The real problem is he didn’t trust the American people with the truth. He thought they would panic.
In psyological terms this is known as projection.
In his case he probably s**t his pants.
—) —) Keep on using the cell phones, and be sure they are always updated, suckers. Eventually they will use EEPROMs that interface with human minds so politicians can erase your memories and substitute new ones the government favors. (— It must be true: I read it on the Internet. (—
His MAGAts continue to call the pandemic a fake, insist he didn’t lie about the virus, and refuse to wear masks. We’ll see the results of these beliefs in 7 to 14 days following his rally yesterday in Michigan.
Trump defends his COVID-19 response in a speech to his mostly maskless cattle.
“I only lied to protect you! From the truth!”
OK, so Trump lied to us. But, it is dishonest to say that we didn’t know the Trump plague was a serious problem. The news media was telling us it was, and also telling us that Trump was lying. The people who believe Trump instead of the “lame stream media” were the only ones who didn’t realize that we were in a lot of trouble in early February. And, I actually doubt that they didn’t know it too. They just demonstrated that they will follow Trump right into their own graves.
Now THAT’s a good one
I do agree. I knew it was serious and took proper precautions. My family has been fine so far. (Knock on wood.) But I hope at least some of Trump’s supporters realize it is a big deal that he lied to them. November 3rd will be the ultimate test.
I don’t know which offends me more; the fact that the president of the United States lied to the American People (ostensibly to prevent a panic), or that he thought so little of the American People’s ability to understand the gravity of the situation and pull together to avert or mitigate the crisis.
Just for fun, here’s a link to the lyrics for Boingo’s song Nothing To Fear But Fear Itself
♫ …People will die — People will die
But go ahead sleep tight in your beds
Remember what the wise man said
There’s nothing to fear, nothing to fear (but fear itself!) … ♫
According to Trump, Americans are apparently the only people in the world that will PANIC if you tell them the truth…
He lied about it! He covered up his lie. He called it a democrat HOAX when he knew that was a lie. He shouted it to his followers, and they believed him. He said it would just go away. And they believed him. He is still preventing others from doing what needs to be done. His followers are still cheering him. He lies.
You’d think that just the fact that his mouth was moving would have been sufficient proof. His followers know that he is lying. They cheer him on as he lies. They enjoy the fact that his lies annoy them librels. They even refuse to wear masks to back up the lies, just to show them librels. The fact that not wearing a mask is dangerous to them is just showing how much they back up Trump, because he annoys the librels. It’s a form of insanity.
He only likes to panic us about things like “them” moving into and threatening our nice white suburbs. I for one live in a previously all white suburb and have seen more Blacks and immigrants moving in… my building has a few of both, and I thoroughly enjoy them as neighbors.
If only the dismiss button does what I hope it does.
… This has been a test of the Emergency Broadcast System. In the event of a real emergency, you would have been burned to a crisp by now. (Mad Magazine?)
He doesn’t want anyone but his Supporters to Panic.
And, they need to Panic on Cue.
