    Experts say a loss of smell is a sign of the corona virus.

    So, we're all safe as long as we recognize that — wait for it–

    Trump Stinks!

    Great God Almighty, 

    Trump stinks!

    So then, Susan Collins personally killed $870 million in pandemic prep funding back in 2009, voted to confirm the rapey alcoholic manbaby to a lifetime seat on SCOTUS, was A-OK with Trump using the presidency to extort favors from a foreign government in furtherance of getting reelected, and yesterday got all outraged at Dems for opposing creation of the $500 billion slush fund from which Collins clearly wants to reward her friends and donors. It is very, very important that the voters of Maine toss this human garbage out of office.

    Who says learning a basic that could save your life, and others, can’t be informational and entertaining?? . . .

    Trump’s Next Pivot Will Leave Us More Divided Than Ever

    It's coming.

    Naturally, the president of the United States is signaling a dramatic change in national strategy during a time of unprecedented crisis by sharing a tweet from a sex counselor.

    “The fear of the virus cannot collapse our economy that President Trump has built up,” tweeted Dr. Dawn Michael. “We The People are smart enough to keep away from others if we know that we are sick or they are sick! After 15 days are over the world can begin to heal!”

    Trump retweeted Dr. Dawn who was herself replying to his own tweet in which he made it clear that, six days after calling for a 15-day period of social distancing, the president was getting antsy. On Sunday night he tweeted”:

      One thing no one has ever accused Ttump of having: . . .

      . . . any kind of an attention span, . . .

      . . . except towards himself.

      Can’t we all, please, just go golfing now??

        Ditto for FauxNews…

        As Fox News Played Down the Coronavirus, Its Chief Protected Himself

        If you were watching some of the commentators on Fox News and Fox Business in the first 10 days of March, you wouldn’t have been too worried about the coronavirus — it would be no worse than the flu, and the real story was the “coronavirus impeachment scam.

        Many of the networks’ elderly, pro-Trump viewers responded to the coverage and the president’s public statements by taking the virus less seriously than, a week later, everyone else had. Public health experts have said that some of them may die as a result, as I reported this week.

        But one elderly Fox News viewer, a crucial supporter of President Trump, took the threat seriously: The channel’s chairman, Rupert Murdoch, who was to celebrate his 89th birthday on March 11.

          Please don't ask me to feel sad for them, Michael. I can't help thinking the world may be a better place without a few of those FauxNews viewing, Trump worshiping old farts.

        Calling all (Texas) Patriots…

        Texas Lt. Governor Thinks Old People Are Happy to Sacrifice Themselves to Coronavirus to Save the Economy

        The elderly are perfectly happy to sacrifice themselves so everyone can go back to work in order to minimize the damage to the economy — or at least that’s what one 69-year-old Texas official thinks. 

        Texas Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick appeared on Tucker Carlson’s show last night after sending the Fox News host a text claiming he was perfectly happy to make the trade of the elderly’s lives to stop a potential economic collapse, although experts say that’s an impossible one to make.

            2009: ObamaCare will create death panels and kill granny!!!

            2020: Granny should die for #FREEDUMB!!!

            • Genghis says:

              These fuckpuddles actually seem to believe that a virus can be appeased by human sacrifice.

              But hey, if it's all the same to Lt. Gov. Patrick, I'd like to hear from granny herself that she'll gladly give up the ghost and join the Choir Invisible so that the CEO of a Fortune 500 company can continue to receive full bonuses and daily handjobs at the massage parlor.

          Culling all Texas Patriots.

          I only regret that I have but one life to lose for the Dow.

          Ya know.. what if

          Texas hired a hit man, paid him/her $250,000 and then the guy could drive around Tx spending the money … a little economic grift stimulus all over.


          Not sure why they would have to go and kill the Lt Gov … but what the hey! TEXAS!

            Texas? TEXAS??  Huh? . . .

            We’re a huge country of tremendous, mostly idle, gun resources — way more guns than people — not to mention all those bullets.  We need to get people back to work. We’re great businessmen. We’re entrepreneurs. And, we also know the value of a human life.

            I’m not saying we’re quite ready to start sending out a $1,200 check every time someone anywhere bags a granny.  Yet.

            Let’s just be patient for a while, let the doctors and miracle-workers do their thing, and let everyone have some time to consider and digest and adjust to this truly momentous idea?  (In Ttumpworld, that should only be another 12, maybe up to 24 hours, tops?!!)

            ”I would love to have the country opened up and just raring to go by Easter.”  Yes, yes, yes, We can!  We could do this, I think.  Why not? We’re Americans, damnit — we’re better prepared and equipped and armed than any other shithole country, and any other generation, evah!!!   So stop moping, and worrying about some terrible future without golf at Mar a Lago and baseball games and the Olympics.

            Maybe Cheetolini finally has found his one acorn?  Like maybe what they’ve been telling us our whole lives actually is true?  Maybe, the only way – the only way – to stop a bad Chinese plague, really is a good guy with a gun???

            “Now is the time for all good men, with a gun, to come to the aid of their country!”

            “Who wants to be a millionaire?!!”

            Just. Think. About. It. . . .

            . . . in the meantime, perhaps a little “Easter shopping”???
