Proving What We Already Know

So among the “Bombshells” competing for our attention is the revelation that he lied about Corona. Bob has it on tape.

Good for Bob. Cohen has tapes too, likewise Mary, also Lester Holt (not for nothing).

Two points. It won’t change a damn thing. The Racist Dominionists won’t care- he hates the right people. The second point is I can’t understand the amazement of the Villagers. This is old “News”, you reported it months ago. Are you as crippled in the Object Permanence department as he is?

Still, it’s what everyone is talking about today.

Trump says he knew coronavirus was ‘deadly’ and worse than the flu while intentionally misleading Americans

President Trump’s head popped up during his top-secret intelligence briefing in the Oval Office on Jan. 28 when the discussion turned to the coronavirus outbreak in China.

Ten days later, Trump called Woodward and revealed that he thought the situation was far more dire than what he had been saying publicly.

“You just breathe the air and that’s how it’s passed,” Trump said in a Feb. 7 call. “And so that’s a very tricky one. That’s a very delicate one. It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu.”

“This is deadly stuff,” the president repeated for emphasis.

At that time, Trump was telling the nation that the virus was no worse than a seasonal flu, predicting it would soon disappear and insisting that the U.S. government had it totally under control. It would be several weeks before he would publicly acknowledge that the virus was no ordinary flu and that it could be transmitted through the air.

Trump admitted to Woodward on March 19 that he deliberately minimized the danger. “I wanted to always play it down,” the president said.

The book is based in part on 18 on-the-record interviews Woodward conducted with the president between December and July. Woodward writes that other quotes in the book were acquired through “deep background” conversations with people in which information is divulged and exchanges recounted without the people being named.

“Trump never did seem willing to fully mobilize the federal government and continually seemed to push problems off on the states,” Woodward writes. “There was no real management theory of the case or how to organize a massive enterprise to deal with one of the most complex emergencies the United States had ever faced.”

There’s other stuff too but that’s today’s topic.

I think it’s pretty funny and not at all coincidental that we’re seeing a lot of books.
