    Not as sad as me knowing the answer!

    "Trump is going into Q.uarantine" is the cover for the start of the heralded Ten Days of Darkness that precede the unleashing of The Storm.

    A sign Trump might actually be sick: https://twitter.com/TimInHonolulu/st...83569086623744

    The military has sent up mobile command planes that they send up if the president is sick in case anyone tries to attack us, one on the west coast and one on the east coast.

    Just thinking maybe Brad Parscale had a better week than Trump.
    Welcome to GEN-OT, have a seat, we'll introduce you to the 23-year-old who will lecture you about how Democrats didn't try hard enough to improve the ACA, and once that's all set up you'll be assigned a socialist who supported Ron Paul up to 2015 to harass you forever.

    I mean, it is what it is; evidence that the continuity of government plans are still functional and that this is in fact a real call and not some trick by Trump to get out of the debates or whatever.

    Want something to pick you up after that read, though?

    Yeah I was just looking at that, kinda crazy. They apparently serve as comms relays for nuke subs?

    Seems like a lot to gain to just stay inside for 14 days.
    For the record, this post is spot on.

    The argument seems to be that Trump can't think of this. Trump doesn't have to, he has a whole staff to work on optics and shit for him.

    It also doesn't take much for him to say in a few days "yeah, we took a fuck load of hydroxychloroquine and we're all better now, I'll tell you all about it at my rally later today!"

    This is the reaction younger when the man lies 99% of the time. Of course, there is still that 1% chance he does have it. It won't change a thing about how he sees it, though. He'll survive and just become the president that beat it, saying anything he likes about how he did so. Conspiracy fools will go into overdrive and start talking about how China, Democrats or just liberals in general tried to kill him with it and failed.

    They were convinced it was a ruse by Trump ahead of the 'mass arrests' Q keeps promising them.

    Those are the planes people order nuclear strikes from if D.C. is nuked into ash. They're on 24/7 ground alert, and up until the end of the Cold War (1990), they were on 24/7 AIR alert, which meant one was always in the air somewhere.

    This house.gov list of everything Trump has said about COVID-19 is likely loaded with ammunition.

    This will be the biggest national security threat you face in your presidency...This is going to be the roughest thing you face
    -- Jan 28

    "What? Trump said that?"

    No no, that was his NSA. A week after Xi's meeting.

    It’s also more deadly than even your strenuous flu... This is deadly stuff
    -- Trump, Feb 7, taped and later released by Woodward

    This is a flu. This is like a flu
    -- Trump, Feb 26

    No, I’m not concerned at all
    -- Trump, March 7

    I don’t take responsibility at all
    -- Trump, March 13

    LIGHT AT THE END OF THE TUNNEL!
    -- Trump, day before 10,000 deaths

    April 23 was the "huffing bleach" day.

    This is going to go away without a vaccine. It is going to go away. We are not going to see it again.
    -- Trump, May 8

    Don’t forget, we have more cases than anybody in the world. But why? Because we do more testing,
    -- Trump forgot this, and got tested.

    And it is dying out. The numbers are starting to get very good.
    -- Trump, June 18

    Testing is a double-edged sword,...When you do testing to that extent, you're going to find more people, you're going to find more cases, so I said to my people, 'Slow the testing down, please.
    -- Trump forgot this and got tested

    I think we have one of the lowest mortality rates in the world
    -- Trump the fucking liar, July 19

    I think that we've probably done the best job of any country
    -- Trump, Sept 10

    I’m on a stage, it’s very far away, so I’m not at all concerned.
    -- Trump was asked about COVID at his rallies. This was his response Sept 14

    There's more. There's plenty more. And of course, there's always a tweet.

    Let us not restrict ourselves to the shitfuckery of one country, however...

    1. The United Kingdom
    Boris Johnson: "I continue to shake hands."
    (Tested positive March 27, 2020)

    2. Brazil
    Jair Bolsonaro: It's just "a little flu."
    (Tested positive July 22, 2020)

    3. The United States
    Donald Trump: "This is their new hoax."
    (Tested positive Oct. 2, 2020)

    Sorry, I am just recalling the stuff Mueller turned up from the Russian bank I can't remember how to spell. Where they gave him 2 billion in loans where even they estimated his net worth to only be about 778 million. If that is accurate or even remotely accurate. I would think they would put him well into the negatives.

    The biggest problems with Trump is we really don't know thing for sure because he is hiding it all and his claims are worthless.
    Since we can't call out Trolls and Bad Faith posters and the Ignore function doesn't actually ignore it. Add
    "mmo-champion.com##li.postbitignored"
    to your ublock or adblock filter to actually ignore ignored posters. Now just need a way to ignore responses to them as well.

    No we're definitely not in danger of getting attacked, but it's standard protocol to do when the president is sick, especially as a show of force to other countries to not attempt to attack us.

    Was just lurking around, and foind out that Bolsonaro's jump in the polls was not due to him beating covid, but instead because of handouts rolled out to the poor.

    This thread is an interesting read from someone from the UK:

    https://twitter.com/carolecadwalla/s...20391842078725

    A reminder to all Americans that the net effect of our prime minister catching COVID-19 was that it prompted a surge of patriotic support. From which he emerged with renewed popularity. Which enabled him to tear up key functions of the state
    It also silenced press & parliament at key moment in crisis from asking critical questions. And when it was announced he was moving to intensive care was moment of national shock. Everything about this is rocket fuel for ‘patriotism’
    Donald Trump has the ‘China plague’. If I was Chinese-American, I would be fucking terrified right now
