Trump  rushes to counteract  explosive virus charges

With an avalanche of messages and statements to Fox News , US President Donald Trump tried this Thursday, September 10, to appease the controversy that arose from a series of interviews he gave to journalist Bob Woodward, author of an explosive book on the president's handling of the coronavirus pandemic when he deliberately played down the dangers and cost thousands of lives, with relatives of victims calling for his resignation

After the publication of excerpts from Rage, which will go on sale on Tuesday, the US president attacked its author, famous for having revealed the Watergate scandal in the 1970s with Carl Bernstein.

n the countdown to the November elections, in which he will face Democrat Joe Biden, the covid-19 pandemic became a central theme of the campaign to the discomfort of the Republican.

"Bob Woodward had my statements for several months," he said in a tweet. “If you thought they were so bad or dangerous why didn't you immediately report it in an effort to save lives? Didn't he have an obligation to do so? NO, because I knew they were good and adequate answers ”.

Trump gave Woodward 18 interviews between December 2019 and July 2020, by phone or face-to-face.

The Republican mogul couldn't expect praise from the author of Fear, Trump in the White House, a book published two years ago that portrays an uneducated, angry and paranoid president.

"I always wanted to minimize (the danger)," the president said in an exchange with Woodward on March 19. However, several weeks earlier, on February 7, he explained to the journalist how the new coronavirus was "a deadly thing … five times worse than extreme flu

"I always wanted to minimize (the danger)," the president said. But when it came to the caravans from Central American there was no minimizing the danger. This is just bad politics. Trump did not make any major moves on protecting the Americans from COVID-19 until the stock market crashed. Then showed favor to Republican states. He is suppose to be the president of the USA not just the Republican party. There are lots of Republicans in red states too. The U.S. did not have any fake news until it had a fake president.

Lots of conspiracy verbal diarrhea going on here. Good grief! Can't believe you're backing one politician or political party over the other. They're ALL self serving and have their collective snouts in the trough of tax payer money. Grow up. Still doesn't change the fact that trump is a lying chickenshit draft dodger.

The word is land slide, the dems will cheat yet once again and claim they won this time, ha what a joke. you want to scream draft dodger? well Joe played football and was a life guard and yet got out of service by claiming asthma. about 80 percent of people who join the service are either poor, uneducated, choose to go over going to prison, or just plain stupid. why, because you are getting killed to protect big corp. nothing to do with keeping America's safe or protecting our freedoms. Now you want to put the blame of 200k dead people on trump? lol, well take a look at it, there were 5 state governors who ordered sick people to be placed into old folks homes, were about 40 percent of the deaths came from. ALL DEM GOVERNORS. but lets back up who had their hands all over making this virus? you do understand it Was man made right? not just found in nature, it was modified. by OBAMA AND FAUCI, and when the heat of what they were working on peaked in, they tried to sent it all over to the lab in china to finish. that's right folks, there is even a photo of Obama and Fauci at that very same lab. two Chinese were arrested trying to fly back to china and that lab, with samples and paperwork but were arrested, and both were military, along with a American college professor who was taken cash payments for his work. Fauci, even made the statement long before the virus was even released that the president would have to face something like this. hummm wonder how he knew? Trump shut down air travel, while his advisors were telling him not too, he did it anyway. and all the dems. jumped all over him screaming that he was wrong for doing it, Joe and Nancy both attacked. now they both are screaming he waited to long to do it, well which side of the fence are you on? see there is a fence there but it's only 3 ft wide with openings on both sides so they can jump back and forth anytime it fits them. china bought the DEMS years ago and bought them cheap, when trump ripped up the worse trade deal in american history with them, they didn't like it one bit, plus trump is taking the power from them step by step and they don't like that either, plus he is even stepping on the toes of the ROTHSCHILD FAMILY BANKING, which has had the people of the world as their slaves for years, with their federal reserve bank scam. You know what happens when men try to right that wrong? ask what JFK, LINCOLN, SADAM HUSEIN AND GADAFI all have in common, wanted to replace money with their own. Lincoln didn't want a central banking system, so they took him out, JFK's wanted to do away with the fed. so they took him out, husein was killed because he wanted to take any form of cash for oil, and Gaddafi was going to use their own gold coins and do away with the central bank. all killed. Israel and Palestine peace? only way to do that is wait and let the people of Palestine fire in a bunch more rockets and declare war on them and go in and kill every dang one of them, then there will be peace. some of you have been drinking far to much Kool aid while sucking on the crack pipe.

Another comment on humty's latest "peace" treaty. Bahrain has been sucking on the tit of american imperialism for years. A major US base has been there for many years. Knowing trump, he probably threatened to remove the base unless Bahrain signed the agreement, all the while telling the magas that he is bringing troops home. Guaranteed that that US base will be there indefinitely. So really, humpty has acheived nothing new, just the same old BS to give jbb another hard-on. So easily fooled by the sloppiest conman to ever walk the face of the earth.

As long as any agreement in the Middle East does not include Palestine, he has done nothing extraordinary. We all know he is fuck buddies with both the UAE and Israel. By the way, some ass-wipe from Norway is who nominated him for the Nobel Peace and will probably be the only one to vote for him. OK Jbbrown, if you believe so much in Trump and hang on his every word, lets see if you are one of the first people to take this vaccine he is trying to hurry up and release before the elections?...........I didn't fukin think so.

Once again jjb proves his maga gullability. What has humpty solved? Was Bahrain or the UAE ever launching attacks on Israel? Did not Saudi Araboa just say that there will NEVER be peace in the Mid East until the Palestinians are dealt with fairly? So while the orange dotard has made a show of these hollow agreements, the core of the ME problem remains Israel and Palestine. He, once again is purely transactional to sure up his base in the hope that myopic fools like jbb will think exactly the things he has written here today. Oh....and get a Nobel Peace Prize.....you know, like Obama did. But the criterion for the NPP is much more than two hollow treaties with small minor players. It is also based on character and deeds at home....both areas where humpty falls woefully short. He promotes anger and chaos and panic at home. You might as well give the NPP to Rush Limbaugh while you are at it. Idiots all!!

Trump is useless and now more dangerous than ever. Like a cornered snake he will lash out in any and every way possible. He knows that if he loses the election, he will spend the rest of his miserable lonely life in court and/or prison. He knows this but his supremely ignorant narcisism will never allow him to ever acknowledge that. But, with the archaic and the "exceptional" american electoral college system, he could lose the popular vote by as much as 5-6 million votes and still win. I believe that that is very possible. So he wins the election, but the Democrats keep the House and win the Senate......it is all very very possible. The first act then sees him become the first prez to be impeached TWICE. This second time though will be a real trial with a certain conviction. The Dems will not have to look far for an easily discernable list of impeachable offenses to choose from. Crooked Bill Barr can then be impeached too, along with lying beer-drinking crying Cavanaugh!! So jbb be careful what you ask for!! Listening to the fool right now on tv.....obviously drugged up, slurring his words with the emotionless drawl of a slimey slug. So you right wing nutjobs who have tied your fate to this fool, open your eyes. He has the deaths of almost 200,000 americans on his watch and he "takes no responsibility" for them......a true leader.....NOT!!!!

VeryPanama... "to save us"? Are you in Panama or the U.S..... ? How can trump save 'us' if you are in Panama? jbbrown.... Trump! Seems all you and your fellows can speak of nothing but Trump. Somehow you would equake the earth tremors here in Panama to Trump. Or maybe even the goings on with the religious cult in Chiriqui to Trump. How about, maybe, your negativism about 'Nito' somehow related also to Trump. Read his book "The Art of the Deal" and you will understand him a little better.

President Trump loved by the average working American. Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize but still this and other leftwing sites continue to slander him. November is when the average person weighs in. Hidin Biden is less active than Hildabeast was. Trump will win handily!
