President Donald Trump Vs Bob Woodward Book About COVID-19 Being Downplayed

I don’t like to get into the assumption thing something that can’t be proven.

With Trump record out of all of the things he been called out on and folk still supported what he said, I would think that they would have supported him downplaying it then and now.

Since he is still downplaying it even after we have heard the recording, so I wonder what difference would it have made?

He has told and continue to tell folk to do Absentee Voting and go to the Polls here in NC too.

So unless it was a crime what he did, what difference does it make?

My thing is he lied and that he continues to prove he is a liar.

Now for Woodward is what he did a crime?

I see what he did as what normal folk would do that have a complaint be it on their job, a rape case and other, some folk don’t come out then but come out later.

Again the only thing that bothers me is the President is a liar and it has been proven.

This have not made me look at him any different than I have since he became President.

And in my closing, the President is the one that is running the country so to compare Woodward holding information to the President’s standards ain’t for me.

Now as bad as the COVID is and folk have lost their lives, I find it hard to believe that the President have not said this stuff in front of others that too could have informed us.

I have a problem with Dr. Fauci’s response when he said he don’t think the President intentionally downplayed the COVID. But then again he report to who?

I don’t like talking about some things that is based on opinion, I like to base my opinions on facts. So therefore I don’t know if Woodward telling it earlier would have saved lives or not.

Dr. Fauci Comes To Trump’s Defense: I ‘Didn’t Get Any Sense’ President Was ‘Distorting’ Coronavirus Pandemic

The Political Agitator’s response: This does not change the fact that Trump lied. When Fauci prove that the audio I heard was not Factual then I don’t want to hear a damn thing he has to say about that part. Now he need to stick with the science part and not the journalist part. Trump lied and it has been documented so move forward.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, head of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and a key member of the White House’s coronavirus response team, came to President Donald Trump’s defense late Wednesday, telling Fox News that he does not believe Trump intentionally “distorted” information about the coronavirus pandemic.

Earlier Wednesday, veteran journalist Bob Woodward released excerpts of his forthcoming book on the president — excerpts that came from nearly 20 hours of conversation with Trump — including a passage that suggests Trump deliberately downplayed the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic in order to tamp down Americans’ panic.

The Political Agitator’s response: Now let’s see how you Trump supporters attempt to twist this. So if you are Trump supporters and you don’t acknowledge this then you are part of the problem. I understand that you like the man but you have got to stop supporting the lies and deceit. You talk about Black Lives Matter Movement because some of the protests were not peaceful but they have not done as much damage as this President because you can’t put value on the individual lives that have been lost due to his selfishness and his political agenda. And folk talking about Black Lives Matter dividing folk what in the hell has this President done?

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – President Donald Trump acknowledged in February he knew how deadly and contagious the novel coronavirus was but played it down because he did not want to create a panic, according to recordings of interviews done for a new book.

The recordings, obtained by CNN and based on a new book titled “Rage” by journalist Bob Woodward, come weeks before the Nov. 3 presidential election and as Trump’s efforts to battle COVID-19 have come under intense criticism as being too little too late.

The Republican president, who has been hammered by Democratic opponent Joe Biden over the slow U.S. government response to the coronavirus, played down the virus for months as it took hold and spread quickly across the country. (Read more)

Trump signs executive actions on coronavirus economic relief

The Political Agitator’s response: Anybody that follows this guys political agendas is just as Unstable as he! This guy instead of just doing things on his own or as a Republican he always have to lie on Democrats in order to make moves. Sad! But y’all Carry on! I try to stay away from Smart Political/Non Political Follow A Fool Folk. But I ain’t mad with nobody because 1 day the 1st gone be last and the last gone be 1st. May not be here to see it but I tell ya I have seen a great change and that is why some folk are just mad! Fear of the Shift.

WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump signed four executive actions Saturday for coronavirus economic relief, upending negotiations with Congress after lawmakers failed to reach a deal on Friday.

The executive actions defer payroll taxes through the end of the year for Americans earning less than $100,000 a year.

They also defer student loan payments through the end of the year; discourage evictions; and extend enhanced unemployment benefits that expired last week, but at a reduced level of $400 instead of the prior $600.

The payroll-tax memo defers rather than eliminates them, which means the government could choose to collect the money at a later date. Nothing in the order requires employers to stop withholding the tax, which is earmarked to pay for Social Security and Medicare, and it is not clear how many will do so, considering that all the money may have to be paid back.

Trump turned the payroll tax into an instant campaign issue, vowing that he would permanently cut the tax if re-elected. But that decision is up to Congress, where even Republicans have been uninterested in changing the payroll tax rate.

“If I’m victorious on Nov. 3, I plan to forgive these taxes and make permanent cuts to the payroll tax,” Trump said. “Joe Biden and the Democrats may not want that, they don’t want that.”

When asked by reporters why the enhanced unemployment benefits would not be kept at the $600 level, as Democrats had pushed for, Trump said the new rate gives Americans “a great incentive to go back to work.” (Read more)

Trump shares Candace Owens interview saying ‘George Floyd was not a good person’

The Political Agitator’s response: The DCN Super Ignant Safe Negro Black Woman Awards goes to ….

US president Donald Trump has shared an interview in which conservative activist Candace Owens describes George Floyd as a symbol of a “broken culture in black America today” and insists that “he was not a good person”.

Mr Floyd died last month in Minneapolis after a police officer pinned him to the ground with a knee to the neck for nearly nine minutes. The killing has sparked days of protests across the US against racism and police brutality, and also demonstrations around the world.

But as the Black Lives Matters movement runs into its 12th consecutive day, with demonstrators calling for police reform and an end to systemic racism, Ms Owens said she had been left ‘sickened’ by the “fact that he [Mr Floyd] has been held up as a martyr”.

In an interview with radio host Glenn Beck, who posted it to Twitter before it was retweeted by President Trump, Ms Owen said: “George Floyd was not a good person. I don’t care who wants to spin that, I don’t care how CNN wants to make you think that he had just turned his life around.”

“The fact that he has been held up as a martyr sickens me.” (Read more)

As They Scream Voter Fraud, Trump And His Press Secretary May Have Voted Illegally

WASHINGTON – Even as they both attack the idea of voting by mail, President Donald Trump and his new press secretary may have voted by mail illegally, using residential addresses on their registrations that were not their residences.

Kayleigh McEnany cast Florida ballots in 2018 using her parents’ address in Tampa, even though she lived in Washington, D.C., and held a New Jersey driver’s license.  Trump cast a Florida ballot this year using a business address in Palm Beach, where he had promised the town government he would not live.

“If Florida is not really your primary residence, then it’s inappropriate for you to be registered as a voter in Florida,” said Ciara Torres-Spelliscy, a fellow at the Brennan Center and a professor at Stetson University in Florida.

McEnany did not respond to HuffPost queries about either her or her boss’s voter registration discrepancies. Providing false information on a registration in Florida is a felony punishable by up to five years in state prison. (Read more)

Trump Blasts Obama As ‘Incompetent’ After Apparent Commencement Speech Jab

The president claimed he hadn’t heard his predecessor’s remarks criticizing U.S. leadership during the coronavirus pandemic.

President Donald Trump on Sunday tore into former President Barack Obama, calling him “an incompetent president” after Obama appeared to criticize his response to the coronavirus crisis during two commencement speeches a day earlier.

Asked about Obama’s remarks, Trump told reporters on the White House lawn that he “didn’t hear it” before proceeding to bash his predecessor as “grossly incompetent.”

“Look, he was an incompetent president,” Trump said. “That’s all I can say. Grossly incompetent.” (Read more)

Bush Calls for Unity. Trump Attacks Bush. And Then a Host of Others.

The Political Agitator’s response: Now if those Die Hard Ignant Racist Republican Special Cs would call Trump on his mess the world could move forward and fight the pandemic along with other mess. But nope they will die and go to hell before they have a change of heart and admit that he is not the guy however he is their guy.

President Trump did not welcome a video by former President George W. Bush appealing for national solidarity in the face of a pandemic, and he made clear that such unity was not on his agenda.

WASHINGTON — President Trump had a quick reaction on Sunday after former President George W. Bush called for national unity. He attacked Mr. Bush.

National unity, Mr. Trump made clear, was not on his agenda for the day, even as the death toll from the coronavirus pandemic that has ravaged the country passed 67,000 and tens of millions of out-of-work Americans struggled to get by.

Amid the death and devastation, the president was busy not only assailing Mr. Bush but another predecessor as well, embracing a fringe conspiracy theory to accuse former President Barack Obama of masterminding a “hoax” to take him down. Mr. Trump also attacked a prominent Democratic congressman, denigrated the news media and threatened to withhold aid to states hard hit by the virus unless they bowed to his demands on immigration policy.

Then he planned to end his day with . . . (Read more)

Breaking News: Trump tax returns reveal over $1bn in losses and that he paid no income taxes for eight years, report says – Independent

The Political Agitator’s response: Truth confirmed. Now gonna wait to see how his supporters try to twist this. Oh but his tweets should be damn good! I’ll wait!

Donald Trump‘s tax returns show that he lost so much money in the mid-1980s to 1990s that he paid no income tax for eight out of 10 years during that period, according to a new report.

The income tax records were obtained by The New York Times, and represent the most detailed look into the president’s personal taxes yet, after years in which Mr Trump had sought to keep the documents private.

Between 1985 and 1994, the documents show, Mr Trump lost tens of millions of dollars a year, with total losses adding up to $1.17bn for the decade.

According to The New York Times report on the taxes, Mr Trump’s losses mostly came from his business holdings in casinos, hotels, and retail apartment space in his buildings. And, the paper reports, the sheer amount of losses during that time show that he lost more money than almost any other American taxpayer during that time, according to a comparison of his taxes to an annual comparison of high income earners compiled by the Internal Revenue Service.

A national emergency declaration to build a wall would set precedent – NC SPIN

by Brad Crone, Communications consultant and NC SPIN panelist,  February 11, 2019.

Gun control advocates are hoping and praying the President will declare a national emergency to get funding for the Mexican wall.  The folks who are pushing for tighter restrictions on hand-guns and gun access believe that a national emergency declaration by the President will set a precedent that will enable a future Democrat President to use the national emergency declaration as a means to bypass Congress on gun control measures.

While the President wants to build his wall – using a national emergency declaration could truly open Pandora’s box for the NRA and gun rights supporters.

Just imagine this scenario not so distant in the country’s future…a Democrat is elected to the White House, there is a school-yard massacre again and the President declares a national emergency implementing an aggressive gun-control policy regarding private sales, background checks and specific equipment that is currently legal and available in today’s market.

Could you imagine the uproar coming from gun owners and advocates? (Read more)
