    Because he valued his wallet over peoples’ lives.

    Why do I feel like Trevor let him off easy? Not easy…. But I’m not very satisfied with the answers… But still thankful for Woodward’s work

    Any other President this would have been enough to take him down but Dump has the GOP & his cult fully behind him even though they know & now we know it was criminal the way he handled the virus. Now we know he gave up fighting it & started pursuing “HERD MENTALITY” back when he was tweeting to liberate States..Your older or even the younger ones that die don’t mean a Goshdarned thing to someone like Dump. As long as he stays in power that’s all that matters, if we reach 1 million dead he will still congratulate himself & say we did such a great job it could have been 2 million! Trump has no empathy or humanity….What kind if a ghoul goes golfing right when we are looming at 100K deaths!

    Drs knew. I knew last year. Saying that the most prominent and eminent doctors didn’t know is just BS.

    Bob says he didn’t reveal to the press when Trump told him in February how deadly & contagious Covid was because he wrongly understood Trump was referring to China. Why would he think the virus would affect the Chinese any differently from Americans? Clearly he wanted to wait until his last interview in July to maximise book sales. One wonders how many of more than 136,000 deaths during these few critical months could have been avoided had Woodward alerted the public of Trump’s private knowledge.

    I don’t believe Woodward’s answer that he thought Trump meant China.

    I’m pretty sure the answer is “he’s a glory hungry old sociopath who cares more about his place in history than American lives.”

    March 22 Trump said he’d always known this is a pandemic, long before it was called one.

    *HOW CAN REPUBLICANS STILL CALL THEMSELVES A PARTY OF FAMILY VALUES AND SUPPORT A PRESIDENT WHO HAS A DISREGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE?*
    *I used to be a republican, but I would NEVER vote for Trump.* *TRUMP HAS NO REGARD FOR HUMAN LIFE* *207,064 DEAD AMERICANS!!* _and counting_
    *His response to the virus has been a COLOSSAL FAILURE AND THAT BLOOD IS ON HIS HANDS.*
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H2MIp5szJdw

    More and more each day, each week, each month, and every year, the president of the United States (Trump) is callous, selfish, heartless, thoughtless, and uncaring to the American people. *TRUMP TELLS LIES.* And, it’s shameless, monstrous, and disgusting how many heartless people in this country persistently justify his evil actions.

    *”President Trump knew that COVID-19 was going to be much worse than he was telling you. He lied.”*
    — Trump, you didn’t want to create panic, so instead you ensured it and a pandemic. You didn’t push on testing the way you should have.
    — Children, in so many places are not back in school.
    — Parents and teachers are struggling to balance children’s education and safety.
    — Families compromised, not being able to work the way they could have.
    — Healthcare workers are out there stressed out fighting COVID-19, with little help from the White House.
    — *The coronavirus pandemic stripped an estimated 5.4 million American workers of their health insurance between February and May.* That’s a much higher loss than any *”full year”* of insurance losses in history. It has been the worst economic downturn since World War II and it dwarfs the Great Recession.
    — The economy suffered in a way it didn’t have to.
    — You knew it was worse than the flu. You knew it was airborne. https://youtu.be/5Z8nV10dFcw?t=58
    — All those rallies with the people you say you love, encouraging them to come to a place in concentration, discouraging masks, not providing testing, when you knew they’d be exposed to something potentially deadly? Some of them support you despite of you and this is how you rewarded them. *207,064 PEOPLE DEAD* _and counting_ *This is more cases and more deaths than any other country in the world because President Trump LIED TO THE PUBLIC AND DOWN PLAYED THIS DEADLY VIRUS! PEOPLE DIED!*
    *Coronavirus Live Updates:* https://www.worldometers.info/coronavirus/#countries

    *As the pandemic worsens, it’s not just the virus itself that threatens human life. Trump’s corruption, cronyism, and incompetence is adding fuel to the fire.* *Trump being in office has truly been a matter of life and death for thousands of people.*

    *In addition to his hideous response to the coronavirus pandemic — Trump has repeatedly disparaged the intelligence of military service members, and asked that wounded veterans be kept out of military parades.* *Trump’s own words:* _Americans Who Died in War are ‘Losers’ and ‘Suckers’_ *Trump has no regard for human life.*

    We need morality and prestige restored to the presidency. TRUMP MUST GO!

    “Important question.” That’s Trevor Noah. He asks such great well pointed and articulated questions that we need to be focusing on when we go forward with whatever our belief systems are instead of getting caught up in the hype part of it.
