    Ouch! Apparently, people didn't learn anything from the COVID food/toilet paper crisis last year. If you live in an area where you can legally store gasoline at home, always have enough fuel stored (mix it with sta-bil to make it last 2 years) to at least fill up one car.

    You mean besides one of the largest hacks in U.S. history that they think the SVR was behind? And wasn't unemployment up to about 15% under Trump? Here is one fact, more jobs were lost under Trump than any President since WW II.

    lol....

    During the first three years of Donald Trump's presidency, the economy did quite well. The unemployment rate hit a 50-year low, income growth doubled, and the economic expansion he inherited grew into the longest in American history.

    But that all came to a shrieking halt when COVID-19 hit.

    That's without context, considering a global pandemic initiated government mandated business closures. Of course jobs were lost, the government forced it to happen, even if it was done for a justifiable reason.

    And had he taken covid seriously it would not have been near as bad, he actually may have been reelected had he responded instead of thinking it was just like the flu and would go away.

    As i stated, his initial reaction multiplied any job losses there would have been. We can't say to what extent but we also can't just say it was all on Covid

    LOL... I can understand why Democrats and CNN/MSNBC/etc. keep repeating this skewed statistic, but who are you trying to sell this to on his message board? :rolleyes:

    I don't think there was much avoiding a widespread of the disease at a particular point to be honest. I work for a global company with one of our biggest offices in India. At about the same time as the US shutdown, India took those shutdowns 3 steps further. While we kept our operations alive, they couldn't have a single person in the warehouse. He was just there to do inventory while everything was locked down and he was escorted out of the building by local authorities. We all know what India looks like battling their issues today.

    That's not to say that his rhetoric wasn't bad and I wish he just strapped the fucking mask on and stopped bitching about it from the start. But the whole it was avoidable thing seems to be a big misnomer. With the widespread transmission of this disease, it seems inevitable to have large outbreaks as soon as any sort of normalcy resumed.

    Biden would have come to each US citizen's house and personally placed a mask on them.

    He didn't take it seriously? Tell me what he should have done differently.

    He was giving daily pressers where he'd bloviate endlessly...

    You can say he sucked at messaging... but his actions, good or bad, says he took it seriously.

    he intentionally downplayed it as he admitted to Woodward during a taped interview. He knew of the severity of the virus early on and played dumb to the public. So, I guess he should have been straight forward with the America public, and encouraged MAGA mask wearing way back when he knew it was highly contagious.

    He should have also told people to wipe down the soles of their feet because apparently the Corona virus was stuck to them. People should have also been washing their groceries when they got home from the store as well. How could he have dropped the ball?

    he knew the severity of the virus and played dumb. Don't defend that bullshit from an American President.
