Censored Story: Trump Says Keeping CV19 Deaths to 100,000 would be ‘a very good job’

President extends social distancing rules to 30 April, saying open for Easter plans were only ‘aspirational’

Introduction

2996 Americans died on 9/11.  2403 Americans died at Pearl Harbor.  Both events sent American to war.  Trump’s sloth and carelessness, his narcissism and addiction to golf, just killed between 100,000 and 200,000, according to his own words, which have been removed from every American and Russian news source.  He said these numbers are just fine, proof he is doing a “good job.”  We agree, if he were an enemy of the US, which of course he is.

Do the math.

Guardian: Donald Trump has extended America’s national shutdown for a month, bowing to public health experts, and scientific reality, and warning that the worst of the coronavirus pandemic is yet to come.  Fox News carried the story but removed all references to numbers of dead quoted directly by Trump or his flippant comments about doing a “good job.”

Every American news source along with the Trump friendly Russian government networks, RT and Sputnik, censored the presidents comments which were carried by the UK Guardian and Sky News and the BBC, which carried the following:

“He said the decision to extend social distancing was made after he heard that “2.2 million people could have died if we didn’t go through with all of this”, adding that if the death toll could be restricted to less than 100,000 ‘we all together have done a very good job'”.  Now from the UK Guardian:

Speaking in the White House Rose Garden, the US president claimed that, if his administration keeps the death toll to 100,000, it will have done “a very good job” – a startling shift from his optimistic predictions of a few days ago when he said he hoped to restart the economy by Easter.

Trump also undermined his plea for unity by uttering falsehoods, verbally abusing reporters and making incendiary allegations that implied health care workers were stealing masks, without providing evidence.

The extended deadline marked a humiliating retreat for the president who, having squandered six precious weeks at the start of the pandemic, more recently complained that the cure is worse than the problem and floated Easter Sunday as a “beautiful timeline” for reopening big swathes of the country…

The shift came as the full horror of the pandemic appeared to dawn on a president who long downplayed it. Dr Anthony Fauci, the government’s top infectious disease expert, said the US could experience more than 100,000 deaths and millions of infections. Fauci praised the extension as a “wise and prudent” decision.  Read more…(no pay wall)

The only alternative source is Sky News in the UK.  No US network or news source is carrying it:

“He added that the country would be doing well if it “can hold” the number of deaths “down to 100,000”.

“It’s a horrible number,” Mr Trump said.

‘We all together have done a very good job.'”

  1. Hey: “Ground control to major Tom” Is something going on at Veterans today. I have not seen a new front page since March 30th; most unusual. I have not been able to contact anyone at VT. Is this a good thing? If anyone at VT sees this message, and are able, please post a note on your front page. THANKS!

  2. This is a quote taken from an audio recording of Netanyahu in Fink’s Bar in Jerusalem:

    “America is a golden calf and we will suck it dry, chop it up, and sell it off piece by piece until there is nothing left but the world’s biggest welfare state that we will create and control. Why? Because it is the will of God, and America is big enough to take the hit so we can do it again and again and again. This is what we do to countries that we hate. We destroy them very slowly and make them suffer for refusing to be our slaves.”
    (confirmed by several attendees during a debriefing).

  3. US death estimates in any crisis usually neglect the consequential deaths in other countries due to US economic and military warfare. If we do the math (not meant at dishonoring the US victims), the number of deaths in the 9-11 and Pearl Harbor have caused enormous amounts of deaths in other countries, and we can only begin to imagine what 50 times more deaths due to Corona can cause as a US response for those that are “responsible” this time.

  4. Not surprised – the USG and too many Americans – whether they are dealing in people, machines or Money – 100,000 is nothing – Nothing happens until you see the Billions or Trillions – the they get — Aroused/ Excited. The Programming is workin.

  5. Well if he said if we could keep the death toll at the low estimate of Dr Fauci that would be 100,000. Can writers not use implications to make statements. If you have ever made any newspaper headlines you would understand that everything in print is sensationalized. I hit the Denver Post as A drunken Telemarker from Utah, when I was describing why I had hiked up a ridge to some Mt. guides with my skis on my back to talk to them about routes. And ended up with a 500$ ticket for violating an avalanche closer. And when I described the situation the idiot sports writer kept harping on me about how as a former ski patrolman I of all people should have known not to cross a rope. I eventually lost my patents with him and told him we could take our conversation outside of the bar. He wrote a good story I’ll give him that and he did not take me up on my offer.

  6. Not that I’m a big fan of Trump but as usual for the disingenuousness of the Guardian they say: “Speaking in the White House Rose Garden, the US president claimed that, if his administration keeps the death toll to 100,000, it will have done” then quote him saying “a very good job”.

    Where is the actual transcript of his speech?

    You’re getting just as bad as the MSM in many ways.

    • Here is Sky News:
      He added that the country would be doing well if it “can hold” the number of deaths “down to 100,000”.

      “It’s a horrible number,” Mr Trump said.

      “We all together have done a very good job.”

      The guardian could have gone much further.
