    The Netherlands…we have several states with more population and size than them.
    South Korea…again, several states that are larger.

    And the biggie……the Netherands are pretty much all Dutch, the SoKos almost all Korean.
    The US is many things, but one thing it is not is homogeneous and this can and often does work against us. One group sneezes and another one will protest the sneeze.

    So managing anything here in the US takes on greater parameters. The Netherlands premier (whoever that is) and the SoKo president (whoever that is) makes laws and rulings for Dutch and Koreans respectively. And those rulings are carried out by the Dutch and Koreans respectively

    Trump makes a comment (any comment) and a half dozen groups parse what he said to suit their needs and immediately complain about something. Send ventilators to hospital X and an opposing ethnic group in another neighborhood is in an uproar over being slighted. This is life in the US and it has been like this for years. The Netherlands and the SoKos have no such problems. It makes simple management in the US difficult and difficult management almost impossible to do well and satisfy everyon..

    You're might about it mattering who is in charge. Someone other than Trump may not have done as good a job. Or may have doe a better job…we'll never know. I think Trump has done an excellent job in getting industry mobilized to help the effort. Could BO have done that as well? Bush? Clinton? Bush? Reagan Who knows. Any opinion is just that…an opinion.

    I think that under the circumstances, complicate but an unfriendly press, Trump has done OK. A little late to the game (and don't forget, early on, Fauci the medical expert was uconcerned. Maybe some other advisors were also unconcerned [we don't know]) , but he is managing it well right now. And as well as can be expected.
    Might as well abolish interracial marriages. You know, to keep the population pure and all.

    I re-read what I said (maybe you should too) and I didn't see that mentioned.

    And I wouldn't want to do that since my wife is "a person of color."

    No, I read it just fine.

    Race matters so long as it’s convenient to you. It’s ok.

    You’ve seen me give him credit many times. My hate is nothing compared to the blind loyalty of the crew who can’t even acknowledge the most obvious of mistakes.

    He’s an awful president at a team that we needed strong leadership.

    He should go back to real estate.

    So Trump said that he was going to stop funding the WHO, a powerful stop.

    Next question is “do you think is a good idea to stop funding now while their is a pandemic going on?

    Trump replies that he never said that, that they will look into to it.

    He can’t ****ing remember what he said 20 seconds before and covers it up with more lies.

    I mean technically the test can be considered broken since we hadn’t encountered the disease. The test for emissions of your vehicle is broken if you try to use it for coronavirus. That gets Trump off the hook and a 10/10 and A+. Right?

    The tests offered by WHO showed to be inaccurate and unreliable. Why would we want them?
