The obvious answer is No.  It wasn't taken seriously enough by Trump or Jarred who informed Trump that it was only a FLU.

 

He said it would be over by mid April a month ago,  before he took it seriously.

 

 

So stopping travel from China in January wasn't "taking it seriously"?

Well, all I can say is you never will if you don't want to. 

Trump only cares about his reelection, he could give a crap about the health and safety of the people. So obvious. He's like a drunk and stupid father recklessly yelling out nonsense

That was a great move and saved many lives. I think Shady is talking more about ignoring intelligence briefings on the severity of the virus and calling reaction to the news of the virus a hoax.

Let's be honest, Trump touting that things will be open in Easter doesn't stray too far from his usual off the cuff proclamations.  I don't understand how people simply haven't gotten used to not taking those comments seriously.

Sorry, but people like to see the same thing in ther leaders as they do their parents in times of crises.: Strength and comfort

  If it were FDR, JFK, LBJ, Clinton these leftists would drooling over themselves from the factless feelz their leader was putting out.  "It will get better soon"  followed by swooning of guys like Tibs, Busey.

His goals for tomorrow (Easter) are scientifically impossible. All I'm asking for is for him to be realistic. I have a business I would like to open this summer. The longer he pretends things are improving (they're not - look at the numbers) the longer this is going to drag out.

 

This is true. If you see strength and comfort in our current president, that's good. I see a child-like adult saying something different each day.

Ya see Gary...you CAN have a conversation! Thank you. (Seriously) So in the end, you disagree with the President’s style of messaging? That’s a legitimate opinion...I guess. However, with that taken into account, I’m not sure why the style of message would bother you. When you get to be President, you can deliver the message as you want to.

Does it really matter at this point?  Justin Trudeau (who many of you here on the left would vote for) was extremely inactive up until a couple of weeks ago even though there were clear signs that this was going to hit Canada.  Same thing for Italy and France. 

 

Everyone of these leaders took it lightly.

 

Trump banning travel from China in January was a good move but it should have also been followed up by testing people coming into the country starting in February when this was obviously going to cause problems.

 

All western leaders deserve a kick in the ass for this mess.

  1. he doesn't listen to experts because he thinks hes smarter. Listen to the experts
  2. he talks out of his ass - It's only the flu and it all be over by April.  It will disappear, it will be a miracle. Stop telling lies
  •  - “The Coronavirus is very much under control in the USA,” he tweeted in late February
  • “Anybody that needs a test, gets a test. They’re there. They have the tests. And the tests are beautiful.”

 

He only took this serious when the markets crashed, not when the cases were exploding. 

 

Don't you ever tire of looking at things from such an intellectually shallow perspective? Seriously, your grasp on issues is so tenuous that I'm embarrased for you.

Claiming that he did not take it seriously. They base their examples on his public statements and ignore the real life steps he took.

 

And then twist his words and claim he said COVID is a hoax.

I understand the point but he actually didn’t say they’d be better by Easter. He said he HOPED that things would be well enough along by Easter that people could go to Church. Of course, that ‘hope’ is very confusing to people who don’t celebrate Easter, but rather think of it as just an annoying day when you can’t get a table at Sunday brunch.

I don't live in Canada and don't pay close attention to Canadian news, but yes, it looks like Trudeau ***** up as well. What I bolded is obvious - not sure it matters at this point but there is no crime in talking about it

 

IMO

His hoax comment, its no big deal, just a cold, the flu is worse. That stuff.

You know exactly what he meant. He said the Democrat accusations about his handling of the virus was their "new hoax." Following the hoax of his Russian collusion and the hoax of the Ukrainian "Quid pro quo.

 

It was pretty simple to grasp, actually.

No country was really ready for such a thing. Should they be? Maybe. Maybe not? We’re ready for lots of bad stuff, but expecting a country to be ready for something that they have NO WAY to be ready for is a bit nutty.

The United States used to have a pandemic response team. Under Trump's leadership that team no longer exists.

Oh, please. There are pandemic response experts and teams all around the world. Show me one place, other than South Korea where it has made one damn bit of difference.
