"But there isn’t a shred of evidence that Ivanka has created a single one of them, much less tens of millions — aside from, perhaps, the 18 people who worked for her namesake fashion brand before she shut it down in July 2018."

I gotta find the article about some Australian journalist that was in the US and covered one of his speeches at the wall. It was her first exposure to him. The speech was pretty much gibberish. Full of rambling. lies and moments where he contradicted himself. After the fact she was amazed at the headlines, quotes and write ups from the MSM that made it sounds more cohesive. She argued it was pretty much the journalists making the sense out of nonsense. She argued the best way to report it would be to just print the transcript.

That's what we are dealing with these days folks.

WASHINGTON — The White House moved on Thursday to tighten control of coronavirus messaging by government health officials and scientists, directing them to coordinate all statements and public appearance with the office of Vice President Mike Pence.

Sadly there is rarely any confusion with viruses. Sometimes some slight errors but this is math and science....not a political stump speech.

These people are truly amazing. For all the free market stuff they espouse they sure like controlling the message.

that's 'cause they know the message isn't good for them.. whether it's impeachment, Russian collusion, sexual assault, paying hush money to porn stars, a global health crisis, etc.

it's what happens when racist, bigoted christians vote for one of their own. The best we can hope for is that they're the ones who get the virus.

I said this about two seconds after he announced him as the "lead" on this. Pence's track record on handling similar issues is total shit, putting it kindly. The inmates are running the asylum.

The only thing Trump has is the economy. If this virus disrupts that it will hurt him in the polls. He can't let on how bad it gets because that hurts consumer confidence. I have a friend who works for Royal Caribbean, apparently they are burning through cash quickly and this virus is going to hurt the cruise business. I work in produce, any containers in China are staying there. Boats are slowing down and there aren't enough containers. I guess we'll see. Maybe I shouldn't expect a bonus next year.

Remember the Ebola outbreak. Republicans roasted Obama for slow footing everything. Granted I didn't think his choice to lead the Ebola outbreak was smart but christ what a bunch of hypocrites.

Trump seeks a 'miracle' as virus fears mount

President Donald Trump is hoping for a "miracle" that will make the coronavirus disappear but tanking stock markets and signs the disease is stalking America are delivering their verdict on his scattershot management of the crisis.

A historic Wall Street sell off, the first case on US soil that could not be traced to travel to countries battling the virus, and news of drug shortages outpaced White House efforts to show everything was under control.

"It's going to disappear. One day it's like a miracle, it will disappear," Trump said at the White House Thursday as the virus marched across Asia and Europe after US officials said the US should brace for severe disruption to everyday life.

The President also warned that things could "get worse before it gets better," but he added it could "maybe go away. We'll see what happens. Nobody really knows."

Vice President Mike Pence told Fox News' Sean Hannity in an exclusive interview Thursday that "the risk of the spread of coronavirus in the United States of America remains low" and credited what he called "decisive action" by President Trump earlier this year.

"We continue to prepare for whatever may come, but the reality is that because of the actions that President Trump took ... literally, you know, ending travel, closing our borders to people coming in from China, establishing a quarantine process, setting up a task force," Pence said. "I mean if the president hadn’t taken those unprecedented steps we’d be in a very different place today, Sean."

Except Trump ignored experts and let people back in the country...who were met by medical personnel who weren't properly outfitted.

How do we not have procedures for stuff like this? I mean...we probably do...but, Trump was waiting for a miracle.

5W Public Relations said that 38% of Americans wouldn't buy Corona "under any circumstances" because of the outbreak, and another 14% said they wouldn't order a Corona in public.

America is a stupid country.

I don't know how to link it, 'cause I'm not real smart.. but Fox News had a guy with the Coronavirus on to tell everyone that he's fine and there's nothing to worry about.. he spent the whole time coughing all over his daughter and then took a drink of her water and handed it back to her.

Trump rallies his base to treat coronavirus as a ‘hoax’

“The Democrats are politicizing the coronavirus. They're politicizing it,” he said. “They don't have any clue. They can't even count their votes in Iowa. No, they can't. They can't count their votes. One of my people came up to me and said, ‘Mr. President, they tried to beat you on Russia, Russia, Russia.’ That did not work out too well. They could not do it. They tried the impeachment hoax.”


Then Trump called the coronavirus “their new hoax.”

Politico: Trump lobs political attacks amid uneven coronavirus messaging

The president's praise for his own handling of the coronavirus has been his administration's most consistent response since the global outbreak began earlier this year. Administration officials have struggled at times to offer consistent messaging on what threats Americans face and what steps they should take to mitigate them.
