Swollen Trump Gives Emergency Virus Speech

March 13, 2020

Last night President Donald Trump gave an 
emergency Oval Office. Restate speech confirmed two things primarily Donald Trump is a liar, and Donald Trump is incompetent. You probably knew both of those things.
First of all, just to get the optics out of the way for some reason, Donald Trump’s right eye seemed almost completely SOL and shot during the entire nine­minute speech as breathing was also 
extremely labored the left eye, which was open seemed red and odd. So increasing suspicions that Donald Trump himself may be sick. Whether it’s with the virus or not, we don’t know that’s the optics. Let’s now get to the substance, which is the most important thing.
Most of the nine minutes was Donald Trump either bragging about how great he’s done with the virus, or blaming other people for anything that has hasn’t gone the right way.
I’m not even gonna play all of these examples for you because their point listen in terms of actually protecting ourselves.
But Donald Trump said that his travel closures, from China were great. Now, the truth is, even after he announced them, which was very late flight still continued flying, in from China, for a while. He 
said, “The power of the United States to fight pandemics is great. It’s almost like military language like this is a military battle, we’re going into.
He bragged about authorizing 8 billion way too late by the way, after denying for a while that we need to do anything about this for a response.
And then he also attacked the European Union about how they didn’t act as quickly as he did. They caused… A lot of the cases that we have here is a… So, let’s look briefly at the Europe attack and 
taking early intense action, we have seen dramatically, fewer cases of the virus in the United States that are now present in Europe, the European Union fail to take the same precautions and restrict 
travel from China and other hot spots as a result, a large number of new clusters in the United States were seated by travelers from Europe. He also used the number of cases here, which we know to be 
false to claim that we don’t have that many cases. The reality, of course, is we haven’t been testing. Because Donald Trump completely bungled that as well. Then on the policy stuff, what is Trump 
actually doing? Trump was either deceptive or clueless on almost every single point. Trump said travel from Europe is now banned. This was one of the big points that he made after consulting with
our top government health professionals, I have decided to take several strong but necessary actions to protect the health and well­being of all Americans to keep new cases from entering our shores, 
we will be suspending all travel from Europe to the United States for the next 30 days. Now, a lot of people thought… Wow, okay, it’s a lot, but this will stop transmission to some degree. 
We’re shutting down all travel to and from Europe for everybody. However, not only is the United Kingdom, exempted meaning you just have to get yourself from wherever in Europe, to the UK and
then fly to the United States. presumably, you’ll be asked about where you’re coming from, but again, these are not fail­safe methods more importantly, the ban does not apply to US citizens or 
03/13/20  Page 2 of 18 davidpakmanshow­2020­03­12­commercialfree
residents and US citizens or residents aren’t banned from flying to Europe. And then simply coming back, this is just foreign nationals who aren’t allowed to come to the United States. The statement, 
making that clear, which was released after the fact by the administration and again, as Donald Trump said you can also get exemptions Donald from also during this address. Last night, said the 
European travel ban also applies to trade and cargo. That was just not true, the White House had to correct that later. And remember, Trump was 
reading all of this off of a teleprompter these were not off­the­cuff mis­statements from Donald Trump. It was on the prompt or meaning either whoever wrote the speech has absolutely no idea 
what it is that’s going on. Or they decided, “Let’s just lie in order to make this seem like something other than what it is. So you can argue about whether this Europe thing is the right policy, but 
Trump presenting the policy, one way, it’s actually something completely different. Immediately sending all sorts of people into panic because they misunderstood because of what Trump said what
the policy actually is. Another example, and this one is straight up insane Donald Trump said during the address yesterday he met with health insurance companies and they are waving all copayments for corona virus treatments.
That’s a big deal. If it’s true. Listen to Donald Trump say it earlier this week I met with the leaders of health insurance industry 
who have agreed to wave all co­payments for corona virus treatments extend insurance coverage to these trees and to prevent surprise medical billing.
So there it is, Trump says insurance companies are waving all co­payments for corona virus treatment, how that’s a big deal, that’s a really good thing.
It turns out it’s a complete and total lie. Donald Trump instated on national television in front of the entire country.
We immediately afterwards heard from a spokesperson for a hip a hip is a big insurance health insurance company lobbying group and they said… And No, no, no, no, we are waiving co­pays on 
testing or the virus we are not waving, copays or co­insurance or deductible requirements for treatment.
This is something, Trump read off of a teleprompter and it was not true. You can get tested without a co­pay.
Even though suppose we were told the tests weren’t gonna cost the end­user anything anyway. I don’t even know why we need that from insurance companies, but you have to often be tested for 
other things. First rule them out before you can be tested for co. if you do have the virus, and you need treatment you will have to pay your co­pays, you will have to pay your co­insurance if you 
have it, if you first have to meet your annual deductible you will have to meet it. That can be thousands of dollars for many, many people. So in short, a speech about something which Trump 
claimed is no big deal, but it still requires an emergency. 9 Peter time speech to the country, riddled with lies and deception, and incompetence.
03/13/20  Page 3 of 18 davidpakmanshow­2020­03­12­commercialfree
Trump also promised some financial relief to people who are either sick or quarantined or caring for people who are also announced as small business association loans at interest to businesses, those 
policies would actually be good if they happen. But Trump lied his way through the entire speech. Trump also said he’s proposing a payroll tax cut 
through the end of the year. If that happens, that could take a while and Trump is refusing to meet with Nancy Pelosi whose help he needs in order to get that done. We’ll talk about that a little bit 
later, but the the sort of the icing on the cake on a rotten take that is riddled with infections, the icing on the cake is to claim insurance, companies are waving treatment co­payments when they’re 
not. That actually would be a really big deal, if they were doing it, but it is not true. And Trump, he 
takes the political benefit of saying it. Most of the country, probably never hears the correction. That was untrue. Where were the fact checkers? How do so much misinformation get into a 
teleprompter speech? I don’t know the President’s own speech was riddled with fake new

    Does tRump own a mirror? I think he's still using a tanning bed. A spray tan doesn't burn your face & make your eyes shut swollen…unless he's allergic to it. He looks like a fat rump roast. He lies, knows nothing, and I wonder who voted for this incompetent blow-hard. Something is wrong with him besides his thought process.

    the republican party is an apparatchik protection racket – nothing more…I'm absolutely baffled by them – what would this lying, delusional, narcissistic maniac have to do for them to finally protect the country?

    I wonder if there is a relationship between the deployment of 25,000 troops to Europe and this "travel ban"?

    I hope above anything right now that the whole Trump administration will get the virus including the whole Trump family including Melanias parents. Lying fat sob.

    If you think about it, this man works for us, we the people. When are we going to demand a drug test?

    The worst part is he will take credit for curing the virus when this is all said and done. The virus pandemic will be solved in spite of trump not because of him. But his worthless base will believe he actually did anything to help when all he has done is hamper the efforts of actual professionals to stop it.
