    Is this "man" insane?!

    Donald J. Trump
    @realDonaldTrump

    Biden/Obama were a disaster in handling the H1N1 Swine Flu. Polling at the time showed disastrous approval numbers. 17,000 people died unnecessarily and through incompetence! Also, don’t forget their 5 Billion Dollar Obamacare website that should have cost close to nothing!

    1. Approval numbers?!
    2. Do you really want to compare numbers?!
    3. There are people dying, the country (and world) is FU and he is still obsessing with Obama?!

      I think, if many in the media would stop obsessing over Trump and try to work together to bring us back together, instead of incessantly trying to nit pick we might have a different scenario.

      Or maybe we wouldn't. But, at least, we wouldn't have reason to doubt your assessment.

        Most media outlets aren't interested in reporting the news.  They're only interested in pushing agendas of whatever political party butters their bread, and gaining the most views as possible.   While I'm not a big Trump supporter, I will agree with him that the media is biased, and usually aren't interested in reporting the facts most of the time.

        Is it the media's job to bring us together? I thought it was the president's job, especially during a time of crisis.

        Oh well, silly me.

          Ideally, the media is supposed to report nothing but the facts, while taking a nonpartisan stance on all issues they report on.  But as we both know, the media isn't interested in that most of the time, and will usually twist the story to whatever narrative fits the agenda that their corporate masters want them to push, while also coming up with whatever headlines will generate the most views regardless of the facts.   That's why you can't trust most media sources these days.

            I graduated journalism school many years ago.

            I can remember during my class on reporting a professor saying "It is your job as a reporter to present all the facts of a story and let the reader decide."

            I don't think that happens anymore.

              Sadly it doesn't.   So called journalism is very partial to the point of being subjective in scope.   Th 1970s was the last decade of objective journalism.   Nowadays, reporters & journalists subject their personal opinion when they report news.   It's isn't the news, it is the reporter who reports.

              It is clear today we have very few reporters that are actually journalism,  most are talk jocks, and they lean one way or the other, they promote their own bias agendas. No two sides to any story.

                This is pretty much correct. News reporting is, to a great degree, opinion reporting. Even stories claiming to be news are just opinion pieces.

                For anyone to suggest news should be unbiased is naive. News is a business and each news organization is serving its customers like any business. Fox News became popular because they tapped into people who wanted a different kind of news that catered to their opinions.

                I think how news organizations report the news is a reflection of us, not a reflection of something inherently wrong with the news organizations themselves. News organizations are selling themselves to advertisers. Unbiased news doesn't seem to appeal to anyone anymore. Everyone just seems to want validation of opinions already formed.

                  I must agree with your view in regards to media being a business that caters to its viewers. I think most media strive to dish up whatever they think their audience craves. They care little about context, in fact it appears they have become masters at disguising context. I truly believe this shabby media reporting has brought about the  "great divide".  And yes sadly it well appears unbiased news does not appeal to many as it did some years ago.

                    I have heard it stated that in the 'past' news divisions were viewed as a service of the networks, and now they are demanded to 'pay their way' as in they are viewed as profit or loss segments just like Real Housewives' or 'Who Wants to Be a Millionaire'.

                    'If it bleeds it leads' might be an ageless trope, but in our times I think it says it all relative to the purpose of news coverage.

          It is the presidents job to bring us together as a nation.

          And that of the media.  And Congress.  And the states.  And the school teachers.  And the colleges. 

          And it is the job of every single citizen of the country, to make a single, cohesive nation.

          Are your comments and efforts designed to build a single nation, or are they designed to split it into competing factions?

            No, it is not the job of the media and the school teachers and the colleges, etc., nor is it the job of individual citizens. If the president had a job description, "bringing the nation together' would be in it. It is ridiculous to say it is my job or your job or a teacher's job,

            It is our duty, however, to select the best person for the job of president, the person who is tasked with bringing us together.

            I don't  think we did so well this last time around.

              Ok. Sure. I can agree with that.

              Edit. But just to be clear. I think many media outlets are doing the exact opposite and I don't think they should be doing that either.

      To get the picture. A little maths:
      The USA has a population of some 330 mill. With a life expectancy of 80 years and 365 days/year every day some 11.300 people die. That i would call natural mortality.
      Now: If Covid 19 currently takes 3.200 deaths per day, then this accounts for 30% of the natural mortality, nationwide, on top. You can do your own maths on the State of NY or NYC.
      This is the situation. Fact, my own maths, no Twitter, no media, no nothing besides common sense.

      Currently Corona takes in one day the total death toll of US Irak war periods 1991 or 2003. With this in mind it is a little inappropriate to compare numbers or print a name on checks.

      As with any fact, it can be manipulated. Let me give an example: With my little maths on relative Corona mortality i could say: Life expectancy in the US has dropped some 30%. Of course that would be wrong, but this little example explains how statistics can be manipulated by the media, politics, no matter of what political color.

      When we hear someone speak, our human brains automatically sense what is reason and what is not. When President Obama gives a speech, you are able to make sense of it all. There is no mistaking what he means or what he is communicating.

      When Trump speaks there is no rhyme or reason to any of his words. What on earth is a COVFEFE?

      If I were Trump, I'd be ashamed of my inability to spell better than a 3rd grader. Worse is that fact that there is no mental reasoning to anything he says.

      He is accustomed to eyeballing words he needs to push his agenda. He doesn't take any time for studying anything which is why he loathes experts in health, science and law.

      He detests authority and has since he was very young. Thus, he feels an entitlement to break any laws he pleases.

      Trump is a figment of his own imagination. But like all fairy tales, he attracts those who live in fairyland, not reality where mental reasoning is essential.

    This idea of an unbiased and factual media is subjective. If you don't like the facts or are slavishly devoted to one side or point of view anything that suggest the contrary has to be fake?

      Not at all. But if you have a video that clearly shows an event and any outlet goes above and beyond to sensationalize, either positive or negative...intelligent people can easily see it.

    So, Trump says something idiotic, no matter what, and is the media's fault? Oh OK.

    Even though...

    1. That's a direct tweet.
    2. Trump is obsessed with Obama since B.O. was president.
    3. Issues with approval/ recognition are a constant in most of DT (public) life.



    Sure. OK.

        Not sure I should add my two cents... However, does anyone consider we are in the middle of a presidential election year? Biden a day or so ago lobbed some pretty derogatory insults at Trump. Inferring Trump handled the virus crisis badly and claimed: "Trump was hiding from his responsibilities." Trump is in campaign mode, he can walk and chew gum.

        I knew a doozy of a Trump tweet would be coming after Biden's insult.  And yeah, here it is. Trump will fight fire with fire. This will be such an ugly campaign. Why would anyone even think Trump wouldn't go after, Biden, and Obama's years in the WH. Just as Biden is attacking Trump's Presidency. Come on it goes both ways... I don't think  Trump will not ignore one remark from Biden or any Dems. They go low he will go lower. Just saying. He is not your typical Republican, now is he?  He is the Dems worse nightmare, he is an old school Democrat that turned Republican.

            Just an opinion on the tweet that was the subject of this thread. Just adding a spin on what precipitate Trump to hit back. Plus, a view of what might come about due to the back and forths during a dirty campaign.

    I know an older lady Trump voter who no longer watches the briefings because of things like this. In fact, she says she cannot vote for Trump in the next election after watching how he's handled himself during this crisis. Her husband may not feel the same, but it isn't going to take many like this to make Trump lose a fair election by a large margin.

    Remember this, every Governor who has sky high approval on their handling of the Coronavirus, and I am happy for them all, could in no way have gotten those numbers, or had that success, without me and the Federal Governments help. From Ventilators to Testing, we made it happen!
