Because they didn't have a retard in chief who pretended this would go away like magic. They didn't dissolve their pandemic task force in 2018 like Trump did here. It's impossible for us to do what S. Korea did, because we have no test kits. This is a failure of leadership that will cost countless lives.
Jan22: "We have it totally under control. It's one person coming in from China."
Feb25: "I think that it's a problem that's going to go away. They have studied it. They know very much. In fact, we're very close to a vaccine."
Feb27: "One day, it's like a miracle. It will dissappear."
Mar6: " Anybody right now, and yesterday, anybody that needs a test gets a test. And the tests are beautiful."
Mar10: "It will go away. Just stay calm. It will go away."
Mar13: Trump declares National Emergency.
It's not the media you jack-face. Check the statistics. Depending on the 24 hour period you cite, 3000 people died yesterday from Covid around the world. Yesterday. In a single day, while we're still toward the bottom of the bell curve. And the curve is going straight vertical. We've got nothing to worry about as long as we don't dismiss this with arrogant nonchalance. Be clinical, look at the numbers. Think about it.
I keep thinking the one silver lining of this pandemic is that it exposes the stupidity of people like yourself.

He is a racist, but that's not the point. I mean, aren't you as well? Calling it the ChiCom flu? Show us where the media called him racist for shutting down flights to China. I think you're making it up. He made that move based on the uniform recommendation of his health advisors. It wasn't his idea.
