Is it genetic or upbringing?

Eric Trump claims coronavirus is Democratic hoax

In an interview with Fox News’s Jeanine Pirro [he said] "And guess what, after November 3, coronavirus will magically, all of a sudden, go away and disappear and everybody will be able to reopen.”

Seriously, has he just heard this so many times from daddy that he believes it, or is this a sign of some hard-wired propensity toward magical thinking?

He's just parroting.

He's got the brainpower of a goldfish.

He may not believe it but for daddy’s sake he mouths it.

Stupid is as stupid does.

I really don't understand this description of the virus as a "hoax". When pressed, Trump and company claim that it's not that he's referred to the virus as a hoax, rather the Democratic response to the virus is a "hoax". (Even that makes no sense... apparently these characters do not know what an actual hoax is...)

Regardless, for a "hoax", or whatever you mean by that, it has killed an awful lot of people...

Repeat a lie often enough, it becomes the truth. He’s just trying to keep their voting base paranoid about the fictional far-left liberal Deep State.

Couldn’t that be said for the whole lot of them?

These people count on supporters not actually paying attention long enough to question them. Yesterday I spoke to an old friend who voted for Trump but does not follow politics. So there you go.

I'm surprised he hasn't shot himself or his dumber brother while out on their pre-paid 'hunting trips'.

The Biden campaign issued a response on Sunday afternoon attributed to Kate Bedingfield, the deputy campaign manager and communications director:

"We’re in the middle of the biggest public health emergency in a century, with almost 90,000 Americans dead, 1.5 million infected, and 36 million workers newly jobless, so for Eric Trump to claim that the coronavirus is a political hoax that will ‘magically’ disappear is absolutely stunning and unbelievably reckless. The simple fact is that President Trump ignored the threat of the coronavirus for months and has mishandled the response at every step since — destroying the strong economy he inherited from the Obama-Biden administrations and leading to countless unnecessary deaths. Trump’s campaign knows he can’t run on that dismal record so they’re desperate to do whatever they can to throw up a smokescreen to try to conceal his historic mismanagement of this crisis."

Does an unprovoked attack upon and slur aimed at goldfish constitute a hate crime, they are after all a minority.

If the Democrats can cause all the dead to rise up again on November 3, then the Messiah will have truly come.

On behalf of goldfish everywhere, I would like to file a formal protest. Eric has nowhere near the intelligence of a goldfish, it's more along the lines of a sea slug.

Nope, sorry. Sea slug brains are well studied and serve as a model for understanding neuronal pathway integrations. The functioning of Eric's brain does not fit this model at all. Rather, his fits the model of a jumble of pure reflex-mediated neuronal interactions, with no memory capabilities. I'd guess it's an inherited, genetic trait.

I know all about sea slug brains. grinning smiley ... I was thinking perhaps more along the lines of sea cucumbers/echinoderms (commonly referred to as "sea slugs", even though they aren't), rather than something like Aplysia. Or if we want to go lower down, how about Hydra. wink smiley

Hydras are significantly more complex organisms than Eric Drumpf, and they are far more valuable to society.

They contribute to research on various cancers as well as Huntington's, Alzheimer's and Parkinson's diseases.

Pestilences are more reputable than any Drumpf.

OK, fine, I wasn't going to go there, but how about sponges? They don't have a nervous system, just multifunctional cells. grinning smiley

Sponges are used to clean up messes, not create them.

Sponges are very beneficial. They filter ocean water and protect coral reefs. They clean up animal waste and pollution, bring nutrients to the reefs, and by supporting the reefs they protect us from storms and the rising oceans.

Kind of the opposite of a Drumpf.

You guys are killing me. OK, how about mycoplasma then? No nervous system, and typically parasitic and a major pest if you're trying to do cell culture. grinning smiley

Are we ignoring saprotrophs?

Yeah, I think you might have nailed it. He's got a shockingly strong resemblance to ureaplasma.

Not at all. Fungus makes important ecological contributions.
