Newly Released Book, Recordings Lay Bare Trump’s Public Deception On Coronavirus | MSNBC 1

 

The release of Bob Woodward’s new book, ‘Rage’, reveals that President Trump knew in early February that COVID-19 was far deadlier than the flu and easily transmissible. But he continued to downplay its risks and failed to implement a strategy that could have saved tens of thousands of lives. “He knew what he was doing. He knew how bad the virus was. He understood it all. And he lied and he covered it up,” says Chris Hayes. Aired on 09/09/2020.

  1. Body Bag Donnie is GUILTY of Mass Genocide !!!

  2. Of course Trump won’t be reading the book – it doesn’t have pictures for him to colour.

    Certified robber music in the background

  4. If you were listening to Trump to decide what to do for you and your family then your a fool.

    _NOTE! This is a broadside not a sweet “Tweet”. But hey, this is not Twitter. If it’s too much for you to handle, move on. But If you are deeply appalled by what’s happening in this Country, read on._

    👉 *VOTE! BECAUSE WE STILL CAN!* 👈
    🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸
    (A Broadside)

    *WE HONOR AND CHERISH* the memory, the courage, and the spirit of those Americans who suffered and fought and died whether willingly or unwillingly in the name of our Nation: on the battlefields, on the cotton fields, on the Great Plains and the River Valleys, and those Americans who are today being assaulted, beaten, shot and murdered by unrepentant and undeniably racist police forces befitting a fascist regime, and those Americans who daily fill our hospitals fighting a novel virus, contagious and deadly. But if we wish to make this claim of honor true, first we must honor Truth itself; for, Truth is the only thing that cannot be overcome. *AND TRUTH IS NOW TELLING US WHAT MUST BE DONE!*

    *REGRETFULLY, IN THE LIGHT OF REASONABLE AND SOUND REFLECTION upon*

    👉His fluency of falsehoods,
    👉His fear of criticism and responsibility,
    👉His insistence on taking credit where credit is not due,
    👉His deficit of emotion-regulation resulting in juvenile displays, personal attacks and insults unbecoming an adult,
    👉His incumbency and his bid for reelection being void of any plan, agenda, mandate, message, or ideas,
    👉His inability to maintain discretion on social media, _and_
    👉His increasingly odious and unstatesmanlike behavior that indicates a pathologically unstable personality such that *President Donald Trump has clearly forfeited the trust and the confidence of those government institutions in his charge that possess knowledge, sensitive and secret, on matters affecting national security that they cannot in good confidence share with him — their President and Commander-in-Chief!*

    *THIS SITUATION* is untenable, unworkable, and gives rise to threats both domestic and foreign to the United States. *WE CANNOT AFFORD THE LUXURY OF BEING AFRAID* Our moment, described as an “Inflection Point”, has come calling and in this election year of 2020, we have something to do — Let this be *OUR* remedy!

    *OUR NATION* imperfect, ever learning and self-correcting, possesses the keys to enjoy “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”. Nevertheless there comes, from time to time, challenges to this ideal that require remediation. In these times we shall insist that our citizenship be recognized and counted, uncontested!

    *AMERICA WILL NOT BE DISGRACED ANY LONGER!*

    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been derelict in his duties,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has undermined The Constitution of the United States,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has committed acts of human cruelty at our Nation’s southern border – potentially to include crimes against humanity,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been impeached,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been found and confirmed as having lied to the American people about the true nature of the seriousness of COVID-19,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has not achieved any tangible act toward the betterment of the Nation,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has withheld information he is required by law to produce,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has verbally insulted our Servicemen and Servicewomen in our Nation’s military – calling them “suckers”,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has been curiously evasive amid investigations persuant to the nature of his relationship with the Russian President, Vladimir Putin,
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has openly encouraged extreme street violence at the level of complicity.
    👉 *THIS PRESIDENT* has perverted the utility of America’s federal defense and peace-keeping forces by turning them against America herself!

    _This list of offenses, while not exhaustive, provides more than enough cause to pursue criminal charges!_

    *ALL OF THE ABOVE IS CLEAR, IS OBVIOUS, AND IS TRUE! AS WELL, IT IS KNOWN TO BE TRUE BY ALL BRANCHES OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT, BY THE FBI, BY THE UNITED STATES MILITARY, et al; AND BY THE PEOPLE OF THIS NATION!*

    _FOR PRESIDENT, DONALD TRUMP IS NOT QUALIFIED! ON THE CONTRARY, HE IS A MENACE TO THE PEACE!_

    *THEREFORE:*
    *WE SHALL* lawfully heed any required safety measures due to COVID-19 without protest or complaint to include wearing face coverings, gloves, and practicing social distancing.

    *IN RETURN*
    *WE SHALL NOT TOLERATE* any barriers, threats, obstructions, hindrances or intrigues of any kind by any party whether from inside the United States or abroad by design or effect that suppresses, deters, delays, denies, manipulates, interrupts, or otherwise alters *OUR CIVIL RIGHT AND OUR CIVIC DUTY TO CAST OUR VOTE, INVIOLATE, AS IT IS GUARANTEED BY THE LAW OF THE LAND — ON OR BEFORE ELECTION DAY — TO REMOVE AND REPLACE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP AND HIS ADMINISTRATION IN THE NAME OF TRUTH, FOR THE SAKE OF JUSTICE, AND TO RESTORE THE PEACE!*

    — _Publius_

  6. Unfortunately America is already in a grouping with Belarus, Russia, North Korea where sane arguments don’t prevail.

  7. … another scandal … of hundreds, which the narcissistic clown will – knowingly – dismiss as “houx” very soon, supported by GOP puppets and FOX-News buddies

  8. At least we no longer have to think about whether Trump was ignorant or evil.

  9. “He does hit jobs, so I said let’s give it a little shot.” That’s nonsensical tripe. I think what really happened is Trump agreed to talk to Woodward to influence the content of his book. Understanding how Trump works, Woodward masterfully stroked Trump’s massive ego, causing him to lose control of his big mouth.

  10. About two years ago (September 2018) Bob Woodward released his book “Fear” about the dysfunctional Trump administration.
    Not surprisingly, Dimwit Donnie was slamming excerpts of Bob Woodward’s book, calling the journalist a “Democratic operative” and questioning his credibility.
    A little surprisingly, in Februrary 2020, the very same Dimwit gave the very same “Democratic operative with credibility issues” 18 interviews over the phone, talking to him like to an old friend.
    Not surprisingly, Dimwit Donnie is now back with attacks on Bob Woodward. Looks like Donnie’s dementia is getting worse and worse.

  11. I love the “Unsolved Mystery” music going on in the background 🤣

  12. Why in gods name did he call Bob Woodward???? WHY Stable Genius…….

    Trump “Stop testing, because my poll numbers are going down.”
    “stop telling the truth, because it makes me look bad”

      @mek86.2 Wow. You are weak

    • blessedchild2 anointed ::: Not just mere thousands – HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS! with thousands dying and getting a day! How dare that animal murder Americans like that!

      Bleeding eyes and other terrible symptoms of Ebola was scary, too, but as a leader Obama told us for us to be aware of it! Obama took Ebola seriously and made sure the country wasn’t infected. He went so far as to ask the sister of the ONLY person that died if he could be cremated to stop Ebola and she said yes.

    • @mek86.2 Yeah, you’re right, Trump is a hero for lying to us.
      THE PERFECT DISTILLATION OF THE TRUMPZI ETHOS!
      Thanks for sharing your toxic, though enlightening, STUPIDITY

      @Fine Girl

      Exactly!!

    • how they can do test or vacines? they know nothing about cov19 !!!!

  14. The Orange Man Is Done!!! Say it wit me ppl 😂 The Orange Man Is Done!!!

  15. He’ll find someone in his crazy circle to blame this on…believe me..😷

  16. Even if it comes out of his mouth his followers will still not believe what he said.

  17. That’s what happens when you have a coward for president snorting aderol

  18. “I didn’t want to cause a panic” by “playing it down”, so that explains the toilet papers, food and hand sanitizer shortages.

    • More importantly, that explain all the deaths. Oh, and if people would notice when Trump talked about Covid-19, he kept saying “remain calm”. If this virus wasn’t so bad and it was a “hoax,” why would people need;to remain calm or not panic? Trump is an evil,vile person.

    • @Ericka Jones Great point !!!

    He means he didn’t want to cause panic in the stock market. Otherwise intelligent Americans would have stopped spending their money
