New White House message: Live with It! Empty New White House message: Live with It!

Post by Original Quill on Sat Jul 04, 2020 9:00 pm

Amid the many lies, and stumbling-bumbling attempts to deal with the medical and economic crises brought on by the covid-19 pandemic, the White House has come up with a new slogan: LIVE WITH IT!

Imagine this slogan in early December, 1941:  Pearl Harbor just bombed by Imperial Japanese Forces, 2403 dead...Live With It!

Or even today: Trump/Putin Doctrine allows for bounty on American soldiers...Live With It!

It is intended to sound tough, like 130,000 deaths should sit comfortably in the belly of all real men.  But it sounds more like a cop-out excuse from some lily-livered president who can't figure out the answer.

Saying "Live with it" - is a bit like "Oh deal with it!"  ..... Harsh & sarky.


Something like "Let's beat this thing together" or "Let's join forces and try to conquer this challenge" would sound more caring, more sympathetic.

All those well paid aides should have a brainstorming session and come up with a better slogan! Laughing

"Live with it" is telling the truth, though.  For some reason Trump either doesn't want to, or cannot change the reality of this pandemic.  So, living with it is precisely what Trump wants or is the only thing he can achieve.

Perhaps, the WH is trying to acclimate the public to the limitations of the Trump administration. What it really says is, we are helpless to do anything about it!

Within the past 24-hours Trump has been shut down by both Facebook and Twitter, for telling falsehoods.  He claimed that children were practically immune from Trump virus, which all but quack medical professionals deny.

Trump was forced to retract those two posts.  Would that we could go back and pull all of his falsehoods, including those during the campaign.

To date, July, 2020, he has made more than 20,000 false or misleading claims.  This amounts to approximately 12 false claims a day.  He is particularly active on the Trump virus:

Washington Post wrote:The coronavirus pandemic has spawned a whole new genre of Trump’s falsehoods. The category in just a few months has reached nearly 1,000 claims, more than his tax claims combined. Trump’s false or misleading claims about the impeachment investigation — and the events surrounding it — contributed almost 1,200 entries to the database.
https://www.washingtonpost.com/politics/2020/07/13/president-trump-has-made-more-than-20000-false-or-misleading-claims/

This is a (dubious) record.
