One-Liner Wednesday — What You Don’t Know Won’t Hurt You

“If we stop testing right now, we’d have very few cases, if any.”

Donald J. Trump, the delusional President of the United States 

Donald Trump apparently believes that if no one gets tested for COVID-19, no one will get the virus. Just think about that ludicrous claim for a moment. Testing for COVID-19 does not cause people to contract COVID-19.

This is yet one more in a string of incredibly stupid and totally baseless things that Donald Trump has said.

You just can’t make this shit up!

    It’s hard to process the level of stupidity sometimes.

    You know, he has no venereal diseases. That’s how he made it out of his own personal battles with a semblance of a sex life — no tests or evaluations.

    Just when I think he can’t say something more stupid, he does. I hope and pray the majority of Americans understand that we cannot have four more years of this.

    Pence: There Is No Second Wave – Page 2

    An “abrupt shift” from Pence: Politico notes that in addition to the op-ed, Pence made a number of comments this week indicating he’s suddenly reinvented himself as a “coronavirus skeptic.” The site says his stance verges on “pandemic denialism.”

    One of those comments: Pence on Monday urged governors to attribute spikes in cases to increases in testing, the New York Times reports. In the same call, Pence downplayed the role community spread is playing in increasing cases. The data indicates all of the above is misleading, the Hill reports.

    A contradiction from Dr. Fauci: Anthony Fauci spoke to the Wall Street Journal himself, and though Pence was not mentioned in the interview, Fauci made clear that the higher percentage of positive tests some states are experiencing “cannot be explained by increased testing.” Fauci also noted, “People keep talking about a second wave. We’re still in a first wave.”

    Other comments from Pence: The VP has also recently downplayed the seriousness of the virus in Oklahoma, where Trump is planning a controversial rally this weekend, ABC News reports. ABC uses the term “misleading,” a word often used in news articles about Pence’s shift in messaging this week, to describe his comments about the state.

    Dueling op-ed: In the Washington Post, Greg Sargent says Pence’s “deceptions unmask Trump’s dangerous re-election strategy.” Pence is attempting to make it seem like any outbreaks that do occur are a local and intermittent issue, not a broader danger for the country. The White House is trying to “creat[e] the illusion that we have already roared most of the way back to victory,” Sargent writes.

    A conservative take: At HotAir, Allahpundit writes that while Pence is correct (for now) that there is no second wave, “part of the reason it’s true is that in some places the first wave never ended.” The blogger does note, however, that the decrease in daily deaths is “genuine progress” that Pence rightly mentions in his op-ed. ….

    He definitely comes up with some “brilliant” observations at times. Just shaking my head!
