Gallup: Trump Up to 49% Approval; 60% Approve of His Handling of the Chinese Flu

This is why the Objective and Professional (Corporate Neoliberal) Media is going into overdrive.

Another one of their ginned-up Fake News hurricanes is dying down and heading out to sea.

This is also why the media is now embargoing Trump's news conferences: Because he's beating them. So they're taking their Fake News ball and going home.

President Donald Trump may be enjoying a small rally in public support as the nation faces the COVID-19 pandemic. Forty-nine percent of U.S. adults, up from 44% earlier this month, approve of the job Trump is doing as president. Trump also had 49% job approval ratings -- the best of his presidency -- in late January and early February around the time of the Senate impeachment trial that resulted in his acquittal.

...

Trump's response to the novel coronavirus pandemic may be [due to] his higher overall approval rating. Americans give the president generally positive reviews for his handling of the situation, with 60% approving and 38% disapproving. Ninety-four percent of Republicans, 60% of independents and 27% of Democrats approve of his response.

60% of independents.

Speaking of the Enemy of the People media:

While they berate the rest of us about social distancing, this filthy subhuman garbage lice are sticking their germ-ridden gum beneath the chairs in the White House press room:

As someone said:

Run a DNA test and then publicize the results.

EXPOSE THEM.

58 Honestly, why "Chinese Flu?"

It's not a flu. It's from China but it's not the only pandemic that started in China. So calling it Chinese Flu isn't even narrowing it down. SARS started in China as well. We don't call other viruses by their country of origin. HIV is not Congo Flu. MERS is not Saudi Arabia Flu. Swine Flu is not Mexican/SW US flu. So what is gained by this childishness?

It draws a lot of negative attention on Chinese Americans who had nothing whatsoever to do with this. And other than that, what's good about doing it?

Our own idiotic anti-vaccing population brought back the measles. Should we just call that the American Flu? or call it what it is, the Measles? Mad Cow is Mad Cow, not English Fever or whatever you idiots would call it.

The fact is, where a pandemic started is about the least important thing about it. Who cares where Polio started? What's important is how we avoid it and what cures it if anything.

All countries are bad at controlling pandemics. We did not better than China did. In fact we did worse.

Grow up, Ace.

Though Trump has tempered his true feelings about this "Pandemic" I think most people sense that he thinks it all bullshit. Just like they do.

Posted by: J.J. Sefton


JJ, I think you know well enough that it's not "all bullshit." But it does seem significantly overblown and shaped more by panic than wisdom at this point. Asymptomatic transmission and a long viability outside the host are dangerous, as is a significant mortality rate for a number of groups.

But that doesn't mean you shut down the entire country in a stay-at-home lockdown indefinitely.

It doesn't help to say its nothing at all, nor does it help to say it's Black Plague II: electric boogaloo. There's a reasonable middle ground.

L'chaim, and keep up the good work

Earlier today, Adele and I learned that we tested positive for COVID-19. We started experiencing symptoms on Sunday - first coughs then fevers, chills, and muscle aches--and contacted our doctors on Monday. We were tested yesterday and just received the results a few minutes ago. We wanted to share this news with all of you as soon as possible.

Neither of us knows how we contracted the virus, but the good news--if there is any to be had--is that far fewer people crossed our paths recently than is usually the case.

So when someone says Chinese Flu, it would be fair to reply, which one? Which is exactly why I preferred to call it the Wuhan Flu since it is the only one from that location, but, because I am a peace maker, when I'm not blowing up shit and ruining body counts by leaving nothing but scraps, lets call it the ChiCom19-Flu.

It's unbelievable the stupid questions they ask him. So many of those "journalists" seem young and inexperienced, I keep thinking "is this the best your employer can do?"

Maybe I'm just old and cranky, I don't know. But it seems they always glom onto anything they can show as negative, instead of mentioning the positive things.

I saw that (series) with Osterholm, and it was pretty scary. That was also 2 weeks ago. We're in week 1 of the SIP here in CA.

If it takes 2 weeks to incubate, then we should be starting to see a sharp rise really soon. My buddy at the ICU was pretty uptight last week, this week not so much.

But like I said, their top guys said this is the week it starts. Fingers crossed. I think we're looking at an all clear in under 10 days.

333 Soothsayer:

STFU, dunce.

Worry about the Chinese Flu in your own neighborhood, jerkoff.

-----------------------------------------

I am concerned about my neighborhood. But that's the thing about this one. If my neighborhood continues doing what we have been doing (I'm in Seattle and we are way ahead of you on social distancing, I'm sure) it will help us for a little bit.

But, as we have seen, a handful of people brought this with them from China and it's everywhere. So no matter what we do about it, unless everyone does the same things, it won't matter. We will get reinfected.

It's like you all don't realize what this is. It's a VERY contagious cold that turns your immune system against your lungs. It kills. Many who are not killed have permanent lung issues. And once we reach capacity on hospital beds with ventilators, the death toll is going to go up. WAY up.

This isn't some flu. Every government in the world is taking this at least as seriously as we are. This isn't a liberal plot. It's a pandemic. The worst since Spanish Flu (which likely started in France or England) and it could be much worse.

I'm no China apologist, but they did what you are supposed to do. They isolated the region. Figured out who was sick and quarantined the shit out of them. We aren't doing that. And you are all acting very nonchalant about it.

Personally, I'm pretty sure I can survive this thing. I'm healthy. I have no immune issues. I'm under 50 (barely) and I'm not a smoker.

Lucky me. My parents? Not so much.

I find it hilarious people think I'm a Soros funded troll.

I wish.

And of that 1.8M people lying in hospital beds at Mt Sinai - 18% will need ventilators - so, over 300K!

359 I'm no China apologist, but they did what you are supposed to do.

No, they didn't.

International law (please, audience, hold your laughter) required China to promptly and completely report the details of the outbreak as soon as they were aware of it.

They did not do so.

382 From the Epoch Times . . .

Chinese Regime Directly Targets Trump in Latest Disinformation Push
In a notable shift in messaging, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) is now turning to directly target President Donald Trump as part of its global disinformation campaign -- aggressively pushing terms such as "Trump Pandemic."

Chinese officials and state-run media have already attempted to shift the blame over the regime's botched handling of the CCP virus by pushing conspiracy theories targeting the United States. Multiple major CCP outlets, most whom have English versions of their websites, are now attacking Trump head-on.

And of that 1.8M people lying in hospital beds at Mt Sinai - 18% will need ventilators - so, over 300K! The man is truly an imbecile for accepting those figures and spreading them out there - I think Trump was having none of it.

This, of course, is why the Chicoms started the 'racist' gaslighting to cover their own culpability-- because they knew that the Left couldn't resist picking up such a prime opportunity to virtue signal.

In the middle of what they scream is an existential crisis, they can't stop themselves from making the prime issue that the label people are using is insufficiently politically-correct.

China lied about the outbreak and allowed it to spread around the world without any warning and has brought the entire world to a screeching halt while spreading disease and death and ruining the finances of billions of hard working people.

And instead of being contrite and seeking to help they are doubling down and blaming it on the US. The commies had the gall to accuse the US military of spreading the disease in Wuhan with the intent of creating a crisis so they could blame the poor communists who never lie.

Fuck them. They act like criminals and animals hurting billions of people and then they lie about it? And it somehow not politically correct to blame them?

444 I think they're worried about NYC metro, and for a reason.

Meanwhile, while they didn't address it specifically, get the sense that containment seems to be going OK in the rest of the country.

That's why Trump talked about regional changes, based on local conditions.

If travel restrictions were constitutional or practical, I think you'd already see them for certain places.

448 Yes I think I have mentioned here in the past that Wal-Mart stopped selling handgun ammo. Also 5.56/.223 and 7.62x39.

Been about two months since we sold the last pistol rounds on clearance.

But I still get customers coming in and asking for such ammo.

I think they have had city specific bans over ammo for years. nothing in cleveland, wmt, has any.

466 CharlieBrownsDildo:

I hope you are right. I really really do.
The world is taking unprecedented steps to limit the fallout of this and the numbers are going to keep going up, but sure, it's not that contagious.

Sure it's spread to every country and every state in a matter of weeks, but no big whoop.

There are certainly more contagious things. Ebola is more contagious. But since you get very visibly sick and die within days of getting Ebola, it typically doesn't spread. HIV is the opposite. It hides for years and you can pass it without knowing you have it. But it's pretty hard to get. You have to share needles or have unprotected sex.

This is sort of in between. You can pass it for days before you know you have it. It comes from saliva and thus can be sneezed or coughed. It lives on metal surfaces for hours. It's really hard to avoid.

Just look at what's happened. In Seattle we are all staying home and people are wearing masks and gloves. You can't find hand sanitizer or Clorox wipes. And the cases will still increase.

And you are all still worrying about how this impacts the election and who you can blame. So fucking dumb.

From what I'm reading the smart money is thinking we're at the bottom of the Dow dive. It's basing that on that provision in the stimulus bill to amend the Federal Reserve Act to allow the Fed to buy stocks and corporate bonds directly.

If that passes, the market will jump. Some are hoping just the threat the Fed can buy will be enough to start pumping it again (people trying to front run the Fed).

If the Fed does start buying, there will be a huge rebound.

Yes, they will unfortunately. People will get sick. Most will get better. A few won't. Which is bad, because one is too many. The infections will peak, and then decrease. Then stop. Just like they have everywhere else. And when it's over people will go back to school and work and life and the world will go on like it always does. *shrug*

480 Agent Cooper:

Of course this thing will run its course.

Yes, people will get it and most will recover.

But the Spanish Flu got 1/3 of the planet. And people didn't move around in 1918 like they do know.

I don't think we want that. In Italy, they have to choose who lives and who dies. They've had 743 deaths - yesterday.

https://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2020/03/21/upshot/coronavirus-deaths-by-country.html

Our curve is as steep as Spain or Italy. And we are behind on testing.

I hope this is no big deal. That this blows over like the seasonal flu. But so far, that sure isn't looking to be the case. Again, we are taking unprecedented action and things are not showing signs of improving. Quite the opposite.

You'd think the way we are keeping away from each other, that all contagious diseases would die. Yet this one keeps going. We don't have the ability or the stomach to do what China and South Korea did. Quite the opposite, Trump is looking to end social distancing to save his hotels.

https://www.motherjones.com/coronavirus-updates/2020/03/trump-coronavirus-depression/

That could kill a half a million Americans. But hey, he's got hotels to profit from!

As of 3/22
Gallon bleach at McLendons - $5.00
Spray bottle at same - $4.99
Rag bag - closet free

3/4 cup bleach in a gallon of dihydrogen monoxide. Spray liberally on surface and wipe down with cloth in 5 minutes. Bonus points for using giant Orange rubber cleaning gloves to protect hands.
Tadaaaa. Clorox wipes (some assembly required)
Warning: Do not spray food. Do not confuse with spray on starch. Use without safety Orange rubber cleaning gloves voids imaginary warranty. Do not use in California since dihydrogen monoxide is classed as a cancer causing agent.
On a serious note, I used this stuff everywhere in my 85+yo parents place when I played caretaker today. Yup, just north of Seattle.
