he did. he just stopped all cargo from Europe.

what fuck does that have to with any of this?
The President later rushed to clarify on Twitter that he was stopping travel and not trans-Atlantic trade in goods, and officials said his plan did not apply to Americans or US permanent residents -- though such travelers would face mandatory quarantines.

What's the saying in rural Chile ?

la culpa no es del chancho, sino del que le da el afrecho.
It's not the pigs fault, rather the one who gives it (feeds it) the bran.

Trump supporters saying he is a genius doing a great job. It's all the media's fault to make sure he doesn't win the election.

That speech last night... what a disaster. Me Me Me, I took unprecedented action, but those damn European communists!

So tell ing that he is trying to speak directly to the business sector and wall street and not the american people, who he demonstrably does not give two fucks about. For him the scoreboard is the DOW and that's that.

Unfortunately I don't see the country learning any lessons about electing people like Trump, etc instead of competent studied people who have at least some idea what the fuck they are doing, or who to ask (AND LISTEN TO) when they don't.

I have a feeling this is going to go way worse than I was imagining. Which was not too bad. Damn.

I have the same dread/feeling , he has really fucked up, and completely lying last night, as usual of course but this time he is not lying about irrelevant shit, this is going to cost a lot of lives.

It did sound like he was saying stopping cargo, but it was a mistake. He meant to say he wasn't stopping cargo but made a mistake or wasn't clear.

It sounded like an autocue speech last night, and I suspect he misread it.

If you look at the written statements put out, I think it's clearer.

He droned on in a monotone like it was a sermon... but this is who the Americans want, as appalling as he is to the rest of the world. I think there is some heavy-duty herd-mind manipulation going on, via the television and media and social media. Decades ago Marshall McLuhan warned of the power of the media, we are seeing it and not believing it. This nation is hypnotized to find their answers in fast food and drugs.

If half of every populace is average intelligence, half is below average. Anyone with normal to low intelligence is easily susceptible to media manipulation. And stupid does not realize it is stupid. We have a nation of obese morons run by a schoolyard bully. What could possibly go wrong?
