Nation Shocked: He Lied To Us From The Very Beginning Of The Pandemic

Stable Jenius

And when you follow the link to Politico, you learn about it in detail:

Trump team failed to follow NSC’s pandemic playbook

The 69-page document, finished in 2016, provided a step by step list of priorities – which were then ignored by the administration.

The Trump administration, state officials and even individual hospital workers are now racing against each other to get the necessary masks, gloves and other safety equipment to fight coronavirus — a scramble that hospitals and doctors say has come too late and left them at risk. But according to a previously unrevealed White House playbook, the government should’ve begun a federal-wide effort to procure that personal protective equipment at least two months ago.

“Is there sufficient personal protective equipment for healthcare workers who are providing medical care?” the playbook instructs its readers, as one early decision that officials should address when facing a potential pandemic. “If YES: What are the triggers to signal exhaustion of supplies? Are additional supplies available? If NO: Should the Strategic National Stockpile release PPE to states?”

A Trump NSC official said, “We are aware of the document, although it’s quite dated and has been superseded by strategic and operational biodefense policies published since.”

“Like, our Very Stable Jenius knows best,” the official didn’t add, sweating, coughing, and keeling over. “Trust him…..”

    Trump and his minions have known about the pandemic and chose to ignore and downplay what it would do. They had cleared out the department of the CDC that would have been the predictors and first responders, presumably as part of their sweeping budget reductions. And it’s been downhill all the way ever since.

    And with Trump facing economic downturns and public anger, he isn’t concerned about the death toll. He’s worried about his investments, businesses, and re-election. He should be charged with murder and thrown into prison.

    It was an OBAMA team that put that “dated playbook” together, and they also stuck around in early 2017 to give a presentation to several incoming Cabinet heads, like Tillerson, Rick Perry and a few others who are no longer a part of this administration, having been “You’re Fired’ed,” or they just quit.
    It was an all-day session, and at the end everyone on Team tRump was quite grateful for those who assembled it, using their experiences from the two previous pandemics, and who then stayed behind to present it.

    For all the good it did.

    At this point, Trump and Dr. Fauci could say the exact same thing in the exact same words, and I would still suspect Donald Trump was somehow lying.

    In my search for “And when they got there, the cupboard was bare” story about the Strategic National Stockpile not containing the medical supplies, equipment and drugs when the pandemic broke wide open that were expected to be there, I came across this:

    https://astho.org/Programs/Preparedness/Public-Health-Emergency-Law/Emergency-Use-Authorization-Toolkit/Strategic-National-Stockpile-Fact-Sheet/

    So now I’m thinking that whoever was in charge at the time went ahead and “rotated” expired stock out of the warehouses, but they didn’t replenish them, either because of drastic budget cuts, or they just pocketed the money and nonchalantly strolled away.

  6. How anyone can be shocked by this news is staggering to me. Trump is a malignant narcissist and believes that he knows better than anyone else. He could’ve stopped this pandemic in the US. Under Obama, he dealt with Ebola and H1N1 (I think)- the economy didn’t tank and we weren’t quarantined or lose so damn much. Trump is an epic failure.

    What if Moscow Mitch decided to take a “wait and see” approach to the pandemic since most covid-19 cases were found in high population centers filled with all those un-American democrats? Too bad for him (and us) his plan was a double-edged sword because most of the areas hardest hit by the virus are the very same areas where most of the money is made and spent. Welcome to the McTrump recession.

    This pandemic has brought to light the staggering amount of corruption, grift, cruelty and managerial incompetence within republican politics that could sadly lead to millions dying unnecessarily just to appease the over-inflated ego of an aging, moronic sociopathic money launderer who is not the leader of the free world we so desperately need, but the supposedly ‘faux populist billionaire’ the worthless beltway media along with countless numbers of lobotomized redneck assholes both want for the entertainment purposes of chaotic ratings and of ‘owning the libs’ since both are ‘victims’ in an ever-changing world that has left both groups behind.

    That dynamic is why I after seeing the democratic nomination of Old Senile Joe Biden along with the foolish ‘shock’ amongst the electorate after three years of derp führer’s non-stop lying & BS, I’m convinced we will never have nice things in this country due to the inherent moronic and childlike nature of 80% of the ‘murican public.

    Prior to this administration it was only in cartoons that a character jumping out of an airplane passed over the parachute to grab an anvil.
