Gore says Trump has learnt you can’t gaslight a virus

Former VP Al Gore criticized President Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic on Monday night, saying he misled the public with his early comments. ’I think he’s learned that you can’t gaslight a virus. You’ve really got to pay attention to what the scientific facts are’, Gore added. He slammed Trump for using the word ’hoax’ and ’saying it was going to disappear’

Also, apparently being honest, upfront, transparent, and holding daily press conferences for updates is considering gas lighting now? Kids are funny nowadays.

For everyone who thinks or says that Trump has "botched" this response and that he had "months and months" of time, you should read this basic timeline to get some facts straight. Source listed at the bottom. 2019 December 18th House Democrats impeach Trump 2019 December 31st China informs the WHO of pneumonia cases of unknown cause 2020 January 1st China closes Huanan fishmarket 2020 January 7th China identifies coronavirus as the cause 2020 January 14th WHO claims there is no clear evidence of human to human transmission 2020 January 15th 1st confirmed infected US patient arrives in the US 2020 January 15th House sends articles of impeachment to Senate 2020 January 16th Senate begins impeachment trial of Trump 2020 January 21st CDC confirms 1st case in the US 2020 January 23rd China imposes a forced quarantine upon Wuhan. Other sources report that over 200k Chinese manage to flee out of Wuhan before the quarantine is actually enforced 2020 January 23rd WHO decides NOT to declare a public emergency 2020 January 24th WHO confirms 1st case of human to human transmission. US confirms 2nd case in the US 2020 January 29th multiple airlines suspend travel to/from China 2020 January 30th WHO declares Wuhan Flu to be a public health emergency of international concern 2020 January 31st US declares a domestic emergency due to the Wuhan Flu. The UK, Russia, Sweden, and Spain also do the same. 2020 January 31st Trump establishes the Wuhan Flu response team 2020 February 5th Trump is acquitted in the Senate trial 2020 February 7th Chinese Dr Li Winliang whistleblower who brought attention to the virus, dies in government hospital 2020 February 24th WHO publicly advocates for a policy of containment 2020 February 25th US CDC warns public to prepare for the expectation that this will be bad 2020 February 29th WHO updates its policy on travel restrictions, which it is against Trump was being Shampeached in September-January; that was the overwhelming priority of the Democratic party and it's leadership. In spite of that, Trump set up the Wuhan Flu task force in January. While Trump was doing this the MSM - New York Times, WashPo, etc - were all playing down the virus. They said it was not as bad as the flu; you are griping about Trump saying it but you are strangely silent about your Lefty media sources for being the ones saying it first, loudest, and longest. So, given the timeline above, where is this "months and months" of time to prepare? Immediately after the WHO declared the pandemic Trump responded. The first US case arrived in mid January, when the WHO was still saying that there wasn't any evidence of human to human transmission. Two weeks after that Trump declares a domestic emergency, the day AFTER the WHO declared a public emergency. https://www.devex.com/news/covid-19-a-timeline-of-the-coronavirus-outbreak-96396 https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Impeachment_trial_of_Donald_Trump https://electroverse.net/coronavirus-the-official-numbers-dont-add-up/

Interesting how the MSM is just digging further and further back as they look for anyone that could make a accusation/insult stick to the president. And all that’s doing is ruining Democrat reputations.

This pandemic had destroyed Trump's chances in 2020. Even trumpists are jumping ship. Anyone still supporting the layman in chief is a layman themselves. Sad

Those of you that know me, you know I love me some Trump badgering, but I despise the delusional arshole who claimed that he invented the internet. Okay I can objectively admit Al Gore has always rubbed me the wrong way. Maybe it's my history in IT and the fact that I know what a MENTOR PRO SERVER is or maybe I just can't stand this self-important little twit. To alleviate any possible confusion, I'm referring to Al Gore.

This waste of a human being has already cost people their lives. As of March 30th, he now has the responsibility of the loss of a nine month old infant on his hands! Is it possible that the death of the child would have been prevented, if he was a honest, compassionate, caring person. That was capable of putting others first! But it's become clear that is not the case. The mentally unstable actions of Trump should be enough to remove him from office, but now he has been allowed to make choices that are killing the people in the United States! Is this truly the type of a leader of the Country that we can survive under?
