Meh. Randy Rainbow does it better. “B” for effort, though. (Their weirdly bobbing heads are distracting as fuck.)

Granted Trump has the mental facilities of a particularly slow lobotomized chipmunk and after 3+ years of literally daily idiocy, I am still going to nominate that comment as his dumbest. The ne plus ultra of stupid Trump tricks.

If anyone can remember a stupider single utterance, I'd love to hear it. I also think "maybe we can inject, you know, something internally with this disinfectant" is a solid number two.

I thought I'd linked the video. Apparently not. I look -- it needs preserving here.

Meanwhile, enjoy a song from the White House press corps. Plus special guest:

Trump claims he is taking the Malaria drug to prevent the virus, now we all know he lies but I pray to the Goddess this time he really is taking it.

Funny how people are so quick to believe consoiracy theories about “over reporting” when powerful individuals with every incentive in the world to under report (aka, Trump, Bozo, Boris, Xi) are practically begging their subordinates to under report.

Trump’s comment the other day that “we wouldn’t have so many cases if we didn’t test so much” was killer.

As of this posting, Oklahoma has 289 dead, but Native Americans are not included in that total, they are Federal Others, and no I can't find any totals for them. Oklahoma still doesn't have the testing it needs, so the number of cases are under-reported.

Wishing? What I WISH for is reasonable humanitarian governance, Pat. But that boat’s left the key, neh?

I am commenting on a consummated fact. So far, every place that has hit 1000 dead with a curve like Texas’ (which is probably underreported) has gone to 10,000 shortly thereafter. I’m not “wishing” anything: those deaths are already fated.

As for “happening to me, ten fold”, it’s already occurred. We have 15,000 deaths — vastly underreported — and may well hit 100,000 right about the same time the U.S. does, or shortly thereafter.

Funny how you’re calling me a Walt when exactly what I have been saying since 2016 is pretty much happening. We have militias running about like mad, an incredible murder rate, and now necropolitics for us all. I always have said that what’s going to kill me is going to be collateral damage, not a directed assassination. I almost died twice last year from street violence. One incident was quite clearly militia directed and in that case I received a warning to not talk to police (like they care) or else.

Now, it looks like the death will more probably be a side effect of Bolsonaro’s attempt to “discipline” Brazil. But 2020 is yet young. We may very well have fighting in the streets before this is done. The U.S. has a narcissist president: we have a sadistic narcissist.

So what, exactly, am I walting about? Or even whinging about? This is flat out prediction.

And the U.S. will be nicely headed into flu season then, too.


Wishing (10,000) people dead again, Mac?
You're good at that, eh?

Then when people say the same to you you reply, 'may the same happen to you, ten fold'.
Well, may the same happen to you. Ten fold.*

*Here's where you now tell us just how terrible it is in Brazil and it probably WILL happen to you, etc. You self-pitying walt.
