My Pillow cocaine fiend guy? Yet another carnival barker

I give him lots of credit - he re-tooled his American-Made factory and immediately started making 10,000 CDC Approved masks per day and by Friday; he expects to be making 50,000 masks a day.

Sure that's great. He should get credit for that. There is only one reason he got to stand on the rose garden and tell everybody to read the bible. He donated to trump and has always spoken favourably of him. It was nothing but a cheap-ass infomercial that added absolutely nothing to the national discourse regarding the fight against covid-19.

I respect him a LOT more than Rush Limbaugh - and he got the Presidential Medal of Mouthpiece. We can disagree, but he's come a long way from being a crack baby. He got a pat on the back.

I have nothing against the guy at all. Good for him for building a successful business for himself.

 

Just don't understand what CEOs of any stripe are doing at COVID press briefings. They add no value to the information and have only been there to praise Trump. I think those briefings are better used for the dissemination of important factual information.

Skydekker was right. Positive relative to Rush Limbaugh is an irrelevant point to make in response.

I wonder if this will cause urban planners to rethink their ideas with regard to population density.  I believe it was just a month or two ago that someone on this forum was crowing about the superiority of Democrats and their propensity to cluster into large interdependent groups, while disparaging Republicans as anti-social reprobates.

Well, its pretty apparent that since large gatherings have been shut down, Trump has gone into 'adoration withdrawl'. 

He can't go into arenas packed with his supporters cheering on his lies.

So he pretends to be giving a 'briefing'. 

And just stands up there, spouting his lies, having his toadies pat him on the back, just like the rallies.

The other day he bragged about how he spoke to the leaders of the G20 and spent a half an hour listing off each one, from cue cards of course.

A very stable genius.

Funny that this should pop up on FB, just after I made my last post:

The BBB revoked "My Pillow's" rating 3 years ago. Based on a pattern of complaints from consumers.

Wow, what a surprise Trump thinks he's such a great guy.

Apparently strippers cannot file for the SBA Disaster Relief program, even though they are usually independent contractors:

"Applicant does not present live performances of a prurient sexual nature or derive directly or indirectly more than de minimis gross revenue through the sale of products or services, or the presentation of any depictions or displays, of a prurient sexual nature."

Seems odd, given the way our President pays them.

Nascar excluded, I assume.

Lest we forget:

“The coronavirus is very much under control in the USA,” the speech began.

“We have it totally under control. I’m not concerned at all. It’s one person coming in from China. We pretty much shut it down. It will all work out well,” the speech continued.

“We’re in great shape. Doesn’t spread widely at all in the United States because of the early actions that myself and my administration took. There’s a chance it won’t spread. It’s something that we have tremendous control over,”  the speech read. “Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away. One day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear. Just stay calm. It will go away.”

“This is a flu. I didn’t know people died from the flu. Here, we’re talking about a much smaller range. It is very mild,” the speech argued. “The tests are all perfect. Anybody that wants a test can get a test. The tests are beautiful. We have a tremendous testing setup.”

Trumpies, WTF are you thinking?

Because his BOGO advertising violated the BBB standards. He was giving away too many too long.

Thank ye, jeeezus, for giving these superheroes the power to defeat COVID-19!!!

But I must wonder, why did they wait so long to use it, letting all those people die prior to March 29? :(
