@RealJoeDee I just find it hilarious that people can say, with a straight face, that if only Trump had exhibited "real leadership" earlier in the pandemic, life would be great. But apparently "real leadership" would have meant lockdowns, closing all businesses except the ones he likes, closed borders, and forbidding people from gathering or organizing against him. The exact tyranny they've always been afraid he'd perform on them. They are literally saying "If only he'd done that, it would have been real leadership."
So we have this strange situation where politically "liberal" people are now advocating for draconian governmental restrictions in their lives, because the greatest prong in their doctrine is to do the exact opposite of whatever Trump says, no matter what, because if Trump is every right about anything that risks his reelection.
Meanwhile, the kool-aid right wing backs the Trump guy no matter what because following him is their religion. Which is weird. Because conservative officials have been using the virus as an end-run to make abortion harder to get, the dating and casual sex scene has dried up considerably in most places and most sex is happening between married couples, and with businesses and schools closed a lot of women have had to scale back their hours or quit work entirely to do child care and now spend their time raising the kids and baking cookies, while families spend all day together...it's every conservative's wet dream for women. But they're fighting against it because Trump.Read More
@arakouzo The Dems are dumb.
Trump :takes action blocking travel from China: Dems: How could he do this?! That's racist, REEEEE! Everyone ignore ORANGE MAN BAD and keep going to large public gatherings like parades.
Trump :does NOT whip the nation into a panic when he learns more about the dangers of the virus: Dems: How could he do this?! We demand he take action and implement draconian restrictions even if they may not be necessary, effective, or legal! REEEEE!
@RealJoeDee The current theory from the left is that if only Trump had stood up in March and signed an executive order that closed all businesses except the ones he says are essential, closed the borders tighter than Melania's legs, and made all gatherings illegal, that would have been real leadership. I have some doubts about whether the left would have gone along with this and praised Trump as a hero and leader. I think they may have expressed some concerns.
