He lied for months about the severity of the coronavirus, calling it a Democratic and media hoax, but now says he always knew it was a pandemic long before anyone said so.
March 18, 2020

For over 60 days Trump and his minions called the coronavirus a new hoax against him to take down his presidency. When he finally went on national television to discuss the virus, he claimed he only had 15 cases in of them only one person died because she was old and sickly.

He continued on this charade which sent people panicking and the stock markets to crash During his pompous Campaign rallies.

And instead of consulting with the medical Tapper experts he called on his son-in-law Jared Kushner, who knows nothing about medicine pandemic's or health to advise him on how to proceed.

This move again because the United States much needed time to properly complete testing kits

However today he crashed another coronavirus press conference that Mike pence is supposed to lead and now says "a lot of people are going to die."

This narcissistic imbecile who just early attacked Pres. Obama's response to the swine flu and in a press conference claimed he was slow and that was the reason why 14,000 Americans died all in an effort to shield himself from criticism.

Now he says a lot of people are going to die from this.

MSNBC's Kristen Welker asked this very question about his change in tone.

"I've always known this is -- this is a real -- this is a pandemic," Trump said. This is an out and out lie.

He continued, "I felt it was a pandemic long before it was called the pandemic all you had to do is look at other countries."

What a f**king liar. Huge f**king liar. It was all a "hoax" until it wasn't.

Mike Pence said a few words about trying to contain the spread of the virus and then turned it back over to Trump.
Trump said, "In other words, reduce the number of people dying. That's what we are trying to do."

"And when you do the steep curve, a lot people are going to die," he said.

From having the coronavirus completely contained because of his awesomeness, now he's saying a lot of people will die.

Then he started to discuss the Spanish flu pandemic of 1918, which he knows nothing about at all.

He couldn't even remember it was called the Spanish Flu and I imagine he, like Stephen Miller, believes it was the Spaniards that created it.
