Trumps entire reelection message amounts to an admission of failure

trump has totally failed as a POTUS and has allowed over 95,000 Americans to die to his incompetence. trump have destroyed the economy and so has to run on the novel theory that his government has failed him and that trump is not a failure. This will be fun to watch https://www.washingtonpost.com/opinions/2020/05/21/trumps-entire-reelection-message-amounts-an-admission-failure/

Given his monstrous narcissism and megalomania, it was only a matter of time until President Trump began campaigning for reelection on the notion that his own government has failed him.

Trump’s political advisers have hit on a new strategy to cope with the challenge of running for a second term amid the most severe public health and economic crises in modern times, the Associated Press reports.

That strategy is to run once again as an outsider, which requires using his own government as a foil. Trump advisers tell the AP that Trump will be positioned as the outsider relative to Joe Biden, which you can see in the new label that Trump propagandists have been applying to Biden: “swamp monster.”

But if you dig beneath the surface of this argument, it really amounts to an admission of failure on Trump’s part, if an unwitting one...…

Nor is it right to say that the coronavirus “artificially interrupted” Trump’s glorious economic record. Trump’s failures are in no small part why the coronavirus rampaged out of control, requiring a more stringent economic lockdown than might otherwise have been necessary.

But regardless, the very use of this talking point is itself an admission of failure. Trump would never concede that he bears any blame for that failure. But we are under zero obligation to go along with that.

It's been a rousing success.

We've ALREADY regained more than 50% of the Dow since the low during the pandemic.

14. LOL South Korea had its first death the same day as the US

South Korea has a competent government and South Korea is beating this disease https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2020/apr/11/south-korea-beating-coronavirus-citizens-state-testing

South Korea is one of the few countries that has succeeded in flattening the coronavirus curve. Its policy of testing, tracing and treating without lockdowns has been widely lauded. Some attribute this to South Korea’s experience of having dealt with previous epidemics such as Sars and Mers. Commentators in the US tend to stress the country’s effective leadership, contrasting it with that of Donald Trump’s. Others point to cultural factors, such as the willingness of the public to sacrifice privacy for the greater good.

What is often overlooked, though, is that at the roots of South Korea’s success against Covid-19 are a well-funded and efficient system of delivering public services. Without this baseline infrastructure, the policy of test, trace and treat could not have been sustained or expanded to the degree that it has. Likewise, effective leadership cannot achieve much if it lacks a well-oiled public service system that can deliver.

23. No such thing as Obamagate: Steve Schmidt says Trumps latest distraction doomed to fail




Former Republican strategist Steve Schmidt explained why President Donald Trump’s latest political stunt is doomed to fail.

Schmidt appeared Friday on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” where he said Trump was trying to gin up an “Obamagate” scandal as a distraction from the rampant corruption in his own administration — such as the $1 million donation by stock-dumping Sen. Kelly Loeffler’s husband to a pro-Trump super PAC.....

“Just one thing, quickly, about Obamagate, which, of course, there is no such thing,” Schmidt said. “This was the cleanest administration in our lifetimes. There was no one indicted in the Obama administration for eight years. Nobody, zero people, so there is no such thing as Obamagate — it doesn’t exist. It is a figment of the fever swamps of right-wing media.”

“There’s Obama’s gate — I saw a picture on the internet of the gate in front of his house, Obama’s gate, but there is no such thing as Obamagate as a scandal,” he added. “Doesn’t exist. I don’t think the American people are going to buy it from the most corrupt president, running the most corrupt regime in American history.”
