  1. Deviated is the wrong word since they never bothered to read or follow the plan in the first place

  2. I live in New Zealand, but am an American citizen. Here, I’m watching Jacinda Ardern kick arse and take names and then I read this horseshit. I am eligible for Kiwi citizenship in December. I can’t fucking wait. Reading about Trump infuriates me in the wake of prudent government action and leadership I’m seeing here. This isn’t a God damned joke. smh

  3. Republicans in the US actively brag about how they do not believe in science.

    Some of them don’t even know science is a process to determine facts, and think it is just a weapon “liberals” use to tell them what they believe is wrong.

    It’s not really a surprise that this administration which embodies the privileges of the ignorant wealthy has literally slipped on an easily avoidable banana peel and eaten a big ol pile of poo in front of everyone.

  4. I was having an argument in a whatsapp group with a mate about trumps response to the virus in the US. I have sent him video evidence of trump himself calling it a hoax, video of him claiming its just a flu etc.. I then sent him a few articles from reputable newspapers…his response – “but those were written by journalists”.

    It seems trumps rhetoric on twitter and any time hes on the TV has warped the easily lead. What Trump says on Twitter and what he says on TV can and sometimes are complete opposites so his followers dont are confused what to think. You cannot reason with a trump supporter, they dont adhere to normal logic. Everything is fake news, unless it comes from Dear Leaders face. They now despise journalists because they are “out to get trump”.

    I spent a long time trying to get through to my friend but Ive thrown in the towel. I firmly believe that he is now part of the trump cult and they would rather die than admit anything bad about trump.

  5. Imagine if Hillary was president, the pandemic would be under control and Fox News would be calling her a failure because 17 people caught and recovered from the disease and were properly quarantined.

    The general public would agree that she was the worst and fail to reelect her in November.

  6. Trump not following guidelines, recommendations or common sense even in the face of a pandemic? Um, no shit, Sherlock!

  7. Don’t blame the WH – they were just doing as the Kremlin ordered.

  8. His minions do not care. They are so under his sway they can no longer think clearly. It’s so sad to see so many of my countrymen, including my own family members, entering the meat grinder so willingly all the while lashing out at those who dare take offense to their master’s blatherings.

  9. US voted for incompetent, they get incompetence.

  10. > “We are aware of the document, although it’s quite dated and has been superseded by strategic and operational biodefense policies published since,”

    That’s a really elegant way to describe shitting the bed.

  11. Well I’m sure that’s only because He fired the panel that drafted the plan. Why would you follow the plan of the pandemic response group you fired? Idiot.

  12. It’s like the whole world made a presentation of what not to do during a pandemic.

  13. i thought a Pandemic was just a sick Panda? – Trump

  14. I give the US 9 day (or less) before panic sets in.

  15. What happens to men responsible for the deaths of thousands if not millions?

  16. According to our town’s major, we had the first confirmed case 7weeks ago. 7 weeks! And they didn’t do or say anything until March 13th.

  17. Reading from the article:

    “We are aware of the document, although it’s quite dated and has been superseded by strategic and operational biodefense policies published since,” the official said. “The plan we are executing now is a better fit, more detailed, and applies the relevant lessons learned from the playbook and the most recent Ebola epidemic in the [Democratic Republic of the Congo] to COVID-19.” – NSC official to Politico

    Did “White House isn’t using obsoleted 4 year old policy memo as basis for COVID-19 response.” fail A B testing?

  18. Unfit to serve in office. Invoke the 25th Amendment now!

  19. The man took initial actions in January and people called him a racist for doing it.

  20. Retardicans want to reinvent the wheel but are too hopelessly corrupt and incompetent to figure out how. The trumpkin cultists call this “great again”.

  21. He was getting impeached and shut travel down from China.
