Today's media in a nutshell. What the hell?


Stephen L. Miller should read the article before ratcheting his outrage meter into high gear and firing up folks like you, shad. :lol:

The article isn't a hit piece on McMillian. It's about how McM's tweet was destroying his life and getting him death threats, so the WP reporter dig some digging, chatted with McM and his folks, and reported that he wasn't saying "Kill the old folks" but instead let them shelter in place and let the rest of the world go on. And that his parents agreed. It was pretty much saying, "Hey, don't hate this guy," but what do you expect from Fox Fake News. ;)

There’s a fine line between trying to give people hope and just being a liar.

It’s interesting that we get tweets about this but the normal 5Af defenders of Trump were MIA yesterday after Trump posted his “the media is making up this to hurt my reelection chances” tweet

Very interesting indeed

If you really think about it, it’s not that interesting at all.

Also from tonight’s interview with Hannity (synopsis: he’s not listening)

"I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they're going to be," Trump said on Sean Hannity's program, "Hannity."

"I don't believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go into major hospitals, sometimes they'll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they're saying, 'can we order 30,000 ventilators?'"

"Look, it's a bad situation," he added. "We haven't seen anything like it. But the end result is we have to get back to work and I think we can start by opening up certain parts of the country."

The president compared purchasing a ventilator to purchasing a car, calling it "very expensive" and "very intricate."

"And you know they'd say, like Gov. Cuomo and others, they'd say we want 30,000 of them. Thirty thousand?" Trump said. "Think of this, you know you go to hospitals that have one in a hospital and now all of a sudden everyone's asking for these vast numbers."

For a guy who listens to advice and data, he’s sure playing up the “lame stream” media and Dems don’t want to get back to work card.

This is sickening considering what's happening in Italy.

Real simple New Yorkers. Don’t get the covid, then you won’t need a ventilator.

Didn't he specifically say he "hopes" to have everything open by Easter though? I don't see a lie in there.

I reading this last night. Ridiculous. Someone tweeted that flying all of the congressmen/women back to DC to vote in person is going to cost the tax payers like $200K.
