The mayhem depicted in the video.
They told me if I voted for Hillary Clinton the president would be emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable. They were right. I voted for Hillary Clinton and got a president that is emotional, impulsive, and unpredictable.

Bob Woodward had my quotes for many months. If he thought they were so bad or dangerous, why didn’t he immediately report them in an effort to save lives?

Look at how fast trump picked up on this angle...his opponents redirecting their anger from his despicable actions onto Woodward is playing right into the big scumbag's hands.

He's laughing his sizable *** off as his opponents go after each other instead of him... ](*,)

And I am sure he laughs even harder knowing that his followers are too stupid to remember that he was calling it a "democratic hoax."

But partisanship aside, if the object was to save lives, Woodward did have that responsibility. Just like with Bolton, he had valuable information that he held for his book release instead of letting it be known when it was important for the public to know. His holding it doesn't let Trump off the hook but it does make me question Woodward's motivations.

It's not Woodwards position and he doesn't have the stage. Can you imagine Woodward trying to address the nation over Trump? Trump had the privilege of insight, even that it was spotty at the time, it was soley his position. Why couldn't he just articulate a message to the country rather than continue with his golf trip and hold rallies? I'm pretty sure the American people would understand how to collectively take care of themselves to stop the spread. But Trump never really indicated that masks and distancing were that important. I mean since he showed no interest in precautions, went on with rallies and all.

He didn't want to cause a panic, yet he launched his campainge on panic and fear - "they're bringing drugs, they're rapist", "they'll take your guns", they'll turn American into a socialist country". He thrives on panic and fear-voting.

And Antifa! Don't forget Antifa!

From tonight's rally:

"Does anybody want to have somebody from Antifa as a member and as as a resident of your suburb?...Say 'Darling, who moved in next door?' 'Oh, it's a resident of Antifa.' 'No thank you...Let's get the hell out of here, darling...Ahh, I wish Trump were president'"

He didn't want to start a panic. Then why wasn't he working on precautions and solutions to minimize the damage when it hit?

Eight months later and there is still no national testing and tracing plan. It is almost like he wants it to continue.

Would have been interesting if Covid hit the red states early on instead of the blue states. He may have actually been less ‘calm’.

But telling people they should wear masks would scare them.

Okay...

YESTERDAY we all learned what trump REALLY thinks about Covid...

TODAY a reporter for The New York Times was kicked out of a trump rally of THOUSANDS in Michigan after posting on social media that THE VAST MAJORITY of the president’s supporters were STILL NOT wearing masks or social distancing...

Woodward has a very good response. In essence he is saying if he had come forward then, Trump and his team would have dismissed the comments (as they did with many other things the President said on camera at that time), and would have continued along their same course. By taking the approach he did, Woodward was able to piece together an overall picture that is much more airtight and much more compelling. There is nothing the reporter could have done to save the more than 185,000 dead, but there was something he could do to help the American people decide if this is the man they want running the country for the next four years.

Bull***. He had information that could have changed Americans' perception of the disease and saved thousands of lives but he saved it for political effect and to sell books. Inexcusable.

We will have to agree to disagree. At that point in time the infection and death toll were minimal. He would have been shouted down as an alarmist. If he kept repeating the president's remarks he would have been dismissed after a point in time. At this point in time the effects of the president's repeated prevarications have far greater impact.

As a side thought, he could have just played the recording and let Trump defend his own words.
At that time he didn’t have much to defend, as he does now. I think Woodward played this right, and good timing. He can’t help the fact that Trump couldn’t care less and Woodward likely relied on Fauci and other professionals to speak from their expertise.

His blame of Woodward is predictable. The real scandal is that he knew the severity of what was coming and did NOTHING!!

According to Woodward

Dan Coats, the US's former top intelligence official, thinks Russian President Vladimir Putin may have blackmail on US President Donald Trump, the veteran journalist Bob Woodward's upcoming book says.

According to CNN, which obtained an early copy of the book, Woodward wrote that Coats "continued to harbor the secret belief, one that had grown rather than lessened, although unsupported by intelligence proof, that Putin had something on Trump."

"How else to explain the president's behavior?" Woodward wrote. "Coats could see no other explanation."

"Coats saw how extraordinary it was for the president's top intelligence official to harbor such deep suspicions about the president's relationship with Putin," Woodward wrote. "But he could not shake them

Trump supporters will ignore this information but believe they are receiving secret and coded messages from a person named "Q".

William Barr seems to be going even further off the deep end recently...this is just today:

1) Federal prosecutors should be accountable to trump:

Rejecting the idea that prosecutors should have final say in cases that they bring, Barr described them instead part of the “permanent bureaucracy" and said they were in need of supervision from “detached,” politically appointed leaders who are accountable to the president and Congress.

2) Covid stay-at-home orders are almost as bad as slavery:

"You know, putting a national lockdown, stay at home orders, is like house arrest. Other than slavery, which was a different kind of restraint, this is the greatest intrusion on civil liberties in American history"

3) Black Lives Matter doesn't really care about black lives:

"They're not interested in Black lives. They're interested in props, a small number of Blacks who are killed by police during conflicts with police - usually less than a dozen a year - who they can use as props to achieve a much broader political agenda."

#-o

Getting rid of trump will have the added almost equally great benefit of getting rid of this partisan hack as well
