    I don't dispute that, but taking the last statement of his as a sign of gladness that people are getting infected is a good deal farther of a jump.
    I DENOUNCE DONALD J. TRUMP AND ALL HIS IMMORAL ACTS.

    The society in europe is a lot more social than in the USA too. People live closer together, travel a lot by walking and bike, like to gather together. Usually do shopping every day instead of once a week like we do, for groceries. All which contribute to a higher infection rate than in the USA where we all pretty much isolate ourselves anyway, and drive everywhere, and live mostly spread out. Just look at the difference between New York city and the rest of the USA.

    It’s not excitement, it is dumbfounded, gob-smacking, amazement that, at least in the White House, the penny hasn’t dropped yet.

    Amazement is not giddy excitement. I am in fact quite concerned about what is happening, the fact that the progression of this disease is routinely turning out to be worse than expected. And the fact that so many, including yourself, keep trying to play it down as some sort of media hype.

    This is not about party, or ideology. You need to get out of your head that I am dealing with this in some petty, partisan way, e.g. that I would be glad to see Trump or the GOP fail in their handling of this. If they fail, we all fail, and millions die. And criticisms I offer of Trump or the GOP (or the Democrats) on this are based on the fact WE NEED TO BE SUCCESSFUL CONTAINING THIS VIRUS.

    This is not some school yard game. Stop acting like it is.

    I saw you and others bowing before a statue of Satan.

    Remember, I didn’t just accuse you, I just said you and others did it, so it’s just fine to accuse you of anything I want and even name you by name, just be sure to tack on ‘and others’ and it becomes okay. Thanks Jim, you’re the best!

    MM, your level of juvenile exchange never ceases to amaze me. I'll leave the last word to you. The exchange has long since become pointless.
    The ultimate weakness of violence is that it is a descending spiral begetting the very thing it seeks to destroy...returning violence for violence multiplies violence, adding deeper darkness to a night already devoid of stars.

    Granted, we don’t know the situation in Russia, but in a very few hours, the US will be in first place. Someone needs to remind Trump what he said when you had 15 cases, hand him a pistol, and walk silently out of the room.
