I can't decide how...unique to Trump this is, but it's very strange how there hasn't been an ounce of sympathy to the victims of this coming from the White House, and it's really not even a story.

Any sympathy from the "horsefeathers your feelings" crowd is reserved for Dear Leader when he is unfairly attacked by #fakenews and libtard snowflakes.

Well that's just not fair. This victim has gotten plenty of sympathy.

it is pretty wild, i guess, but not all that surprising. i'm sure in trump's mind, if he expressed some type of sympathy for someone who died, he would feel as though he was admitting to some type of fault or accepting some type of responsibility for it.

also, just try to picture in your head trump trying to express any type of sympathy toward a human being...it's pretty impossible. if you think about it, really the only words that come out of his mouth are brags and complaints/grievances.

Sure we're going through a pandemic that is worse than anything we've experienced in our lifetimes, but yes lets ignore requests for help from the heads of 2 of the 15 biggest states in the country who happen to have amongst the highest number of cases because they did not ask nicely enough.

I would kill to have just a normal run of the mill evil republican president right now. So sick of this asinine discourse

Evidently Trump called ARod and JLo to ask their advice on the crisis. Also today called our governor "Half" Whitmer.

At least once a day I marvel at the fact that this guy's face will be all over documentaries done about this time in our lives a couple decades from now.

You see, Congressman, Originalist Constitutionalism is a living, breathing thing; malleable to demands of current times.


....when Dems aren't in charge.

You've got to be horsefeathering kidding me

https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics ... ont-comply

President Donald Trump said on Friday that he will not adhere to a portion of the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus bill that would authorize an inspector general to oversee how $500 billion in business loans will be spent.

In a statement released early Friday evening, Trump announced that he had signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security or CARES Act, a relief package aimed at mitigating some of the economic fallout caused by efforts to allay the spread of Covid-19.

That bill also establishes a Special Inspector General for Pandemic Recovery (SIGPR) within the Treasury Department to audit and investigate half a trillion dollars in loans for large businesses. In his signing statement, Trump said that this provision raises “constitutional concerns,” adding that his administration would not comply with such an official’s request for documents.

“I do not understand, and my Administration will not treat, this provision as permitting the SIGPR to issue reports to the Congress without the presidential supervision required by the Take Care Clause,” part of Article II Section 3 of the Constitution that states a sitting president “shall take care that the laws be faithfully executed.” This seems to suggest the administration believes it is the president’s duty and not that of an inspector general to ensure the funds are distributed as the law intends.

I know she will not lower herself to his level of childness and pettiness but, wouldn't be awesome if Gov. Whitmer to told him to go horsefeathers himself? Come November Biden or Sanders must come up with a nickname for him, I like "Dumb Donald" short and to the point.

Nah. If a Democrat started calling Trump a nickname, he would get eviscerated for "taking the low road", while Trump continues doing the same thing with impunity

Fine and when he distributes funding towards his own interests that'll finally crystalize the fact that he cares for no one or nothing but himself. He's money hungry there's no way he won't try to take a chunk. It won't turn his base however, it'll do enough damage to turn fringe voters against him, which is all that's necessary to vote him out.

Sue them into oblivion

When I've been talking to Fox insiders over the last few days, there's a real concern inside the network that their early downplaying of the coronavirus actually exposes Fox News to potential legal action by viewers who maybe were misled and actually have died from this. I've heard Trish Regan's being taken off the air is, you know, reflective of this concern that Fox News is in big trouble by downplaying this virus. ... I think this is a case where Fox's coverage, if it actually winds up being proved that people died because of it, this is a new terrain in terms of Fox being possibly held liable for their actions.

I'm mildly (pleasantly?) surprised it's that low, but then again most of those 37% are probably, "it's just a flu" truthers who are mad he's doing anything
