Well, here we are with what I like to call ‘Same shit, different day.”

Yesterday, the Dow had its single largest crash in history. 2,997 points. That puts the economy pretty much in the shitter. In fact, the Dow sits now at roughly the same level it was when Obama left office.

Is this Trump’s fault? You bet your sweet ass it is! Here’s why:

From the outset of this entire thing, Trump did nothing but downplay the virus. And who was there right alongside him helping him push that narrative? Fox News.

All along Fox News and Donald Trump called it a hoax. They called it nothing. They called it contained. They called it “short lived”.

And that’s all they did. That’s why we’re so fucked right now. Don’t think so? Well, here’s a news reel showing Donald Trump calling it a hoax and saying no American has died from coronavirus, that all of it is a hoax spread by the Democrats because they hate him.

Trump calls coronavirus a hoax.

And here’s Trish Regan (another in a long line of Fox eye candy “journalist”) calling the whole thing a hoax.

Fox News bullshit brought to you by Trish Regan

Of course, after the shit hit the fan Trish went MIA. Fox says she’s “on hiatus”. We all know what that means, don’t we? (Yep. It means she’s in the back room servicing the men of Fox News in a vain effort to get her job back.)

Folks, this is the problem with this fucking country. You have ONE SOURCE saying the polar opposite of EVERYBODY ELSE. If I’ve said this once, I’ve said it a thousand times:

If it’s everybody else that seems to be the problem, then it’s really JUST YOU that’s the problem.

But before we go, here’s one more video of the now defunct Trish Regan from just 10 days ago:

Trump and America are WINNING! (Spoiler alert: it’s all bullshit.)

WINNING!!!

This is how half the country lives, folks. They’re so brainwashed they actually believe all this shit. And now, even as the bottom falls out of it and they’re all getting laid off and in about 3 weeks will start losing their cars, their homes and everything else they have what the hell do you think they’ll do?

You think Republicans will FINALLY wake up to the fact they’ve been bullshitted all along?

Fuck no. They’ll blame Obama, yell “BUT HILLARY!!!” and keep on drinking the Fox News / Donald Trump cool aide.

    Only took a week to go from Democratic hoax to all out pandemic with 2 million est dead by Trump’s hand.

    Steve Mnuchin said last night that unemployment could hit 20% if these actions (implemented too late) don’t work.

    I think that’s on the low side. It’s quite possible we could beat the Great Depression rate of 29% if we don’t see improvement or at least a topping off of spread of the virus by the end of March.

    Meanwhile in Canada we’re seriously discussing Basic Universal Income.
    And, COVID-19 testing is still free and available just like the rest of the health care system.

    We here in the US, still live in the dark ages when it comes to health care. Of course that’s what capitalism is designed to do to a society around it. We can’t have nice things, that’s only for the 1% of society.
    But, at the rate we are going with Trump and his thugs, we should hit 30% Unemployment rate, same as 1929. What’s even more damaging will be the death toll, and their not telling how long to replace the wealth that will be destroyed, businesses will be destroyed, employees will be lost, and there will be a shift in power.
    The question is, “ what are we not being told that is hiding behind door number 3 ?” The 1% crowd has already scoped out there moves well in advance. They will exploit this, and push people from the middle of the “pyramid” down to the bottom of the pyramid. Remember the movie the Hunger games ? Well, That is what is going on now. The pyramid effect is going into effect.

    Typical fucking Fox. When somebody goes on vacation or takes a leave of absence they do not come back.
