The crap data that showed mass deaths? I would be pissed if I failed that hard and someone was calling me out on it as well

I probably don't understand the significance, but basically, Trump seems to have said Lancet published a study in December, and they said 'Not true! It was January!'. Doesn't really seem like a "blast" to me... Side note: The Politico article claims the British medical journal urged voters to oust Trump in the next election. A weird political statement from a foreign medical journak, imho.

Trump always needs a fall guy for his massive failures. I hope he gets what he deserves!!

Data published in the Lancet was also the first indication that China was lying. It was something published in there, in January (I dunno if it's the same thing he's referred to) which made me go from "this is nothing" to "prep now, before the panic starts and shortages begin". Interestingly though, only a tiny amount of my preparation was for the virus, and was mostly for the civil unrest, shortages and shit storm I knew was coming as a result. I wouldn't be hard on the Lancet as, from their data, those who didn't just listen to the news and think for themselves knew to get ready before the panic started. By the way, I've got so much emergency booze I think I might open a pub.

Why is every disagreement or correction called a "slam" nowadays? It's not a slam unless you have a choir of people going "oooooooooh damn!" after it.
