Stop being a bitter loser... you know that Trump and Boris are divine Gods and can do no wrong, and should not be questioned.

Stating common sense like reading labels and knowing that disinfectants can kill is worse than blasphemy.


:)

The losers will, sadly, be those who follow their President's word. People will: they did with his previous suggestions and some died. I do hope that CC knows better than to listen to his hero's advice.


What advice? I've watched the video of President Trump's 'bleach' incident and he doesn't offer any advice.

He was only being sarcastic, wasn't it?

That many will be almost entirely composed of the bitter losers who started trying to get rid of President Trump the moment he was elected.

After their impeachment fiasco they'd be advised to wait until the election. Another futile attempt to get rid of an elected president will make them look even more desperate and bitter than they already do.


Stunning... the US President suggest drinking and injecting disinfectants and you dismiss groups querying that as entirely composed of the bitter losers


Even you must see that this is not the suggestion of a sane, responsible person, and a laughing stock around the world.




He didn't.



See above.. planet Earth is calling...

Authorities in the US have received hundreds of calls asking if or how they should administer disinfect. A president just speaks vaguely and people consider it an instruction. Trump, like the CC, hasn't realised that. Or perhaps he has.

Trump is tweeting that people don't recognise that he is the hardest working President in history. He obviously considers that watching wall to wall Fox news and testing half the night is work.

UK government related news update.

'The approval ratings of almost all world leaders have risen compared to before the pandemic. After a slight initial rise, however, Japan’s Abe and America’s Trump have seen their ratings fall back down again. Boris, on the other hand, has risen further than the others, from an already high base. Polls show if there were an election tomorrow more than one in two people would vote Tory, and Boris is trusted more than any other politician. Not that you’d get that impression from much of the media…'

Just shows how incredibly stupid some of the British public are.
His speech this morning was absolute comedy gold.

So he was asking a sarcastic question to the press, yet at the same time addressing the scientific representatives with a serious question?

That is the outline of the defence that your article puts forth.

However what was asked is YOUR opinion, and YOUR interpretation. I can produce thousands of scientific advisors who are of the opinion that Trump's advice was dangerous and stupid

Last time you tried this you failed and proved that Sunak was more popular and trusted than Johnson.

The "Rally round the Flag" effect has been explained to you on multiple occasions, yet you still seem unable to comprehend such a simple concept.

The fact that ALL the leaders are increasing would support this bias

Just heard Priti Patel's utterances on shoft lifting and car crime compared to this time last year.
Just WHAAAT does this moron think we all are,idiots,who believe the guff she espouses?
There's no freakin' shops open and the vast majority of cars are securely lock up on people's drives and garages!

Listening to BoJo's speech earlier sounds great if you're a village idiot who hasn't compared this country's death toll(books cooked,care home and other deaths in the community not counted) with that of other European countries.

I heard a chap on the radio on Saturday who found it unbelievable that he was simply allowed to just walk out of a UK airport earlier in the week after landing on a flight from the far east.
He couldn't believe there were no checks on his health no quarantine no NOTHING!!!!!!!!

Should we be surprised,other than being an idiot he's the world's most powerful narcissist :roll:


If he's such a moron and idiot it doesn't say much for the party and candidate which lost the 2016 election to him.

Actually it says more about the US citizens who voted for this lunatic rather than the Party that lost.....
