Gaslighter in Chief "Axios on HBO" interview

I saw a clip of the reporter arguing with Trump. No thanks. You can find it on YouTube if you insist.

Deaths as a percentage of cases pushed, until the reporter pressed him on per capita deaths.

"You can't do that." - Trump

The reporter cited S. Korea's greater successes ...

"You don't know that." - Trump

And the familiar, we have more cases because we test too much.

Trump also had nice things to say about John Lewis. Didn't "know him" but curiously cited Lewis' skipping his inauguration and State of the Union speeches as examples of things Lewis did wrong.

There is stupid and then there is Trump stupid.

He kept claiming that "it's under control". If this is what things look like when they're "under control", I'd hate to see what things look like if it's not under control.

Alas, he may have new dementia. But I am 100% convinced he would have been as incompetent and act without any empathy 20 years ago.

It’s under control, as much as you can control it.

It must be nice living in that cocoon where there aren’t all those other countries all over the world with lower Covid case and death rates.

That interviewer is very good, I like him.

Axios: When will every American have same day testing, like the White House has?

T: we have great testing, we have tested more people than anybody ever thought of blah blah blah
There are those that say you can test too much, you do know that?

A: Who says that?

T: Read the manuals. Read the books.

A: What manuals? What books?

T: Testing just shows cases. ...we want a 15 minute test

A: When will you have that?

T: blah blah blah other countries have big problems

and then the death conversation - wow


This is basically a 30 minute Biden commercial.

Dumbf shows off all of his warts - as they continue to grow.

Can anyone believe a word that comes out of his mouth? And the constant ME ME ME… you'd think he was the only person to ever live in the White House, the only president who ever did anything for Black people, for the ill, for the states - besides of course, Abraham Lincoln.

The fact that he recycles these same bad arguments time after time shows his true limitations. And the bumbling speech - non stop. It's like he has 10 tapes to play and when he can't decide fast enough which one to shove in the tape player he starts rambling. He should not be in the position he's in right now. He's incompetent, and worse, he's a dangerous fool playing with our lives.

Abraham Lincoln, 1855:

Our progress in degeneracy appears to me to be pretty rapid. As a nation, we began by declaring that "all men are created equal." We now practically read it "all men are created equal, except negroes" When the Know-Nothings get control, it will read "all men are created equal, except negroes, and foreigners, and Catholics." When it comes to this I should prefer emigrating to some country where they make no pretense of loving liberty -- to Russia, for instance, where despotism can be taken pure, and without the base alloy of hypocrisy.

What is sad is that this interview is considered an anomaly. Our bar is so low for what constitutes an "interview" these days that Jonathan Swan is being hailed as some kind of awesome hero for doing his job correctly.

More to the point, any issue or problem he's not interested in is delegated to some opaque individual in his administration, almost all of these appointees have agendas that no one today knows or perhaps ever will know except for the primary agenda - to open yet another back door into the public purse.

I really don't envy the Biden appointees who will have to begin the herculean task of cleaning this up.
