We've gone from extremely unprepared to very unprepared, but I wouldn't agree we're in the exact same position as we were in April.  Little if any of that improvement is thanks to the Trump administration, but we're clearly more practiced in dealing with Covid.  For the first three weeks that my hospital had Covid patients, we had no ability to test at all, and even once we got tests it took days to get an unreliable result.  We would have been delighting with getting an N95 to wear even if we had to wear it all day, for a 250 bed hospital we had a full case and a partial case of N95s and a dozen PAPRs.  This was only made worse by not having any idea of who had or didn't have COVID.  The clinical criteria early on narrowed it down to just about every symptom a patient might be hospitalized for.  We also now far more about how to treat, and more importantly how not to treat Covid infections.  So no, we're not where we should be but we're also not in the exact same position we were in 4 months ago.  

YOUR hospital received supplies, many more across the country are still suffering. Also, it's not thanks to the Trump admin, states were buying their own supplies and the Trump admin was stealing them so then states had to pay private contractors to guard the supplies. And now that we have been testing more after they purposely weren't testing, which Trump also openly admitted to stifling the tests, we're finding out many more people had covid than thought, which is bad because they've been out and about making more people sick. It's a circle of nonsense.

I'm not sure where you're getting that I don't believe we currently have any problems, much less that it's likely we are going to fix all the problems in the near future, or that I am trying to 'excuse away the facts'.

 

 

I spoke on race relations being equivalent to how they were years ago and you said you disagreed. You disagreed with just about everything I said and I gave you examples of why I said what I said and how they've not changed, just now have different names. You never said we currently have any problems, you only took the time to try to dispute and excuse away my sentiments. So if you basically agreed, why take the time to try to dispute what I said? You're speaking in circles now.

Dr Birx thoroughly recapped how things are better.  

 

Dr. Birx has always been Trump's tool.  She comes from the military experience and has learned how to kiss tush very well.  She's only still around because she didn't have enough conscious to leave and let the country know what was really going on...and she excels at fawning to "superiors."  So she still gets to stay on the dais while Trump has disposed of Fauci as an expert because he expresses his dismay at Trump.  Every time I see her, I want to rip the scarf so hard that she twirls:)

Not conscious:)  She is conscious or appears to be.  I meant conscience.

What is Trump Saying?

Here is an example of the moral ethos of the country.  The president is presumably threatening a sitting senator with comprising information. But Trump is a liar, so which parts are the lies and which parts are the  (typically unspoken) truths? Because dishonesty and distrust is now the American brand...in the era of Trump.

Continuing the statement in the linked video:

[...]

"I've seen that person in very, very bad situations. Somewhat compromising. And you know, I think it's very unfair to bring up things like this," the president said during a news conference about the revised trade deal among the United States, Mexico and Canada.

It's stunning isn't it? It's so very unfair. Unless it's Trump bringing it up, am I right?

Trump's "thought-process" is like a ping-pong ball on the surface of a huge ocean heaving with monstrous waves. I find it so hard to believe there are STILL people saying he is the best thing to happen to America.
