Trump accused of waving  white flag to pandemic

AFP. Washington - The Democratic presidential candidate, Joe Biden, on Sunday accused Donald Trump of surrendering to Covid-19, as a new outbreak of the virus affects the president's team, cases increase throughout the country and his head of campaign made an uncomfortable recognition.

Nine days before the vote, with more than 225,000 deaths from coronavirus in the United States, Trump's chief of staff, Mark Meadows, acknowledged on Sunday that the White House will not "control the pandemic."

“This is what we are going to do. We are not going to control the pandemic, we are going to control the fact that we can have vaccines, ”Meadows told CNN on Sunday.

Biden immediately took advantage of Meadows' comment and again criticized the government for its handling of the pandemic, which on Saturday reached a new record for new cases with almost 90,000 infected in one day.

"It was not a Meadows error," Biden said in a statement. "It was an honest statement of President Trump's strategy since the beginning of the crisis: waving the white flag of defeat and hoping that if ignored, the virus will go away," he added.

"They are admitting defeat," his running mate Kamala Harris also said during a campaign stop in Michigan. "I've been saying that, and Joe Biden has been saying it from the beginning."

Marc Short, Vice President Mike Pence's team leader, tested positive for Covid-19 over the weekend, the latest to include his name on the list of Trump administration collaborators, including the president, who are have been infected with the coronavirus.

"The vice president is going to continue his travel schedule," Republican campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told Fox News.

"He takes this very seriously ... the people on his team are in quarantine, and he relies on the best advice from the White House medical unit."

Trump's campaign team tried on Sunday to evade the new coronavirus outbreak in their group by targeting Joe Biden, a senator for decades and former vice president of Barack Obama, accusing him of "47 years of failure" in Washington.

Murtaugh criticized Biden for his relaxed campaign schedule, saying the Democratic candidate was "feeling the pressure" and "took five or six days off" before the last presidential debate, held on Thursday.

Trump, 74, has maintained a fast pace for days, including stops scheduled for Sunday in New Hampshire and Maine, while Biden has set a more cautious course, speaking less frequently and in smaller groups.

White men have been the problem for hundreds of years. They have been stripped of their power in the USA so now they move here to prey. People of color and women control or will control the levers of power soon. Retribution is in the works. You can run but you can't hide from the purge of the old white patriarchy.

The heat is on the sexual predators up north so they have brought their ground game to Panama. It's time to shine the light on the dirty old roaches here and send them packing. If the young girls will agree to press charges then we can cover their legal fees for the civil suits. I think just a handful of high profile cases will deter the behavior. These filthy old men will need to look elsewhere for their deprivations.

Depraved is the word my wife uses to describe the old expats with young girls in Panama. We warn everyone it's nothing like the brochure down there. Mostly druggies, broke depressed people and old sexual predators, your mileage may vary but I doubt it.

AJD don't you see what is happening here? Trump supporters have ran out of excuses for his deplorable performance over the past 4 years, so they sway the subject of the post for a lack of anything else to say in his defense. His performance over the last 9 months have been deplorable and is unlike any other performance by an American president. His supporters also understand that to overcome the death of close to 240,000 Americans, the fact that almost 22M are jobless, and close to 10M that stand to be evicted from their homes for non-payment of rent. We knew when he tripped up and fell into the presidency, that it was just a matter of time before we saw just how big of an idiot and conman he really is.

From an "Old Gringo" to all other Old Gringo. Care to join me ? I plan on starting a #Me Three Movement. You know why ? Well, yesterday I read that an "entertainer" of 47 was breaking from her 23 year old "Toy Lover". But that's OK...because she's part of the #MeTooMovement". OH well, the scale of Justice is represented by a blindfolded woman, no ? What can I say !!!

As to the subject of the article, in all the writing on the orange dotard there has never really been a real and cogent assessment of who he really is. True he has bailed on the virus. Couldn't beat it so just convince his lemmings that it doesn"t exist anymore. True conman. But looking deeper you see his true essence. Cowardly and desparately wicked is the description I would give. Looking purely objectively at all that he is doing, in light of the FACTS( those things that he and most of his worshippers ignore) he is truly an evil person. He does not care about any of the fools putting themselves at risk at his superspreader lovefests. Examples of the danger are rampant. Saw today a man in Wisconsan who thought it all was a hoax, went to humpty rally, caught the virus and died. Am sure he has not been the only one. So while jbb and mhogan and old snake pliskin lick up humpty's bile, the rest of the people who are sane and not infected with the maga virus will continue to beat the drum of right as opposed to wrong, love as opposed to hate and facts as opposed to ignorance. The orange dotard is so much worse than just being dangerous, he is, as said before, and I stress again, evil. Understand and recognize that truth. Dump trump!!!

Why does EVERY story get turned into a referendum on "old gringos"? I'm an "old gringo" and have lots of old gringo friends. NONE of them reflect the image you try to project. Let's stick to the story line of El Duce's attack on the reality of covid.

With advanced age the sense of smell deteriorates and many older people don't realize they have an off smell. As far as the poor young women here they will continue to be preyed upon by these pervy old gringos. Holly you make an excellent point about getting an attorney for the young women here but I would go one step further and have the attorney hire an American attorney as well. Then the bank accounts and assets held in another country can become fair game. 99.9% of these old pot bellied, smelly gringos in Panama are here just to violate the women. I think we should start a movement via social media to educate the local women so they know how to get to what the dirty old gringo thinks are safe bank accounts. women over the age of 18 can be shown to be victims if they are poor and the gringo is wealthy by her standards. That is a form of monetary power used to prey on the poor. I will try and get this movement started as soon as possible for the protection of all poor Latinas. Shame on all you old lecherous gringos!

YO ! HOLLY...Are you for real? She's being violated, as you say ? How about you get your facts straight lady? If she's of legal age and accepting the situation, that is called Consensual Sex in my book and should be in yours too. A lot of these young women, when they see an " old gringo" they are actually seeing a "fat wallet". But your saying that " her family would get a lot of money", only goes to demonstrate that is what you are also seeing. Is that what the #Me Too Movement is all about? HOW SAD !!!

These are just the type of vile comments women suffer everyday. I saw a young latina with an old gringo at the mall. I followed her to the bathroom and asked her how she can do it with such an old man. She said that he pays her tuition so she has no other choice. She said that during sex she's always on top because the old man smell is unbearable. She closes her eyes and thinks of something else. She said she refuses to kiss the rotten mouth. She showed me a small tooth brush, mouth wash and body wash in her purse used to get the smell off afterwards. I gave her a hug and told her that she's being violated and that she should record it and go to an attorney. She said that her family would be shamed. I told her that her family would get a lot of money from the old gringo. She said she would give it some thought. That's the only way to stop the sexual aggression here, film it and go to the police. Spread the word and educate the local girls. #Me too.

Back to the subject, if you please. *** to which Trump succinctly and cleverly replied when confronted by a biased media: “No, no, he has. He's waved a white flag on life. He doesn't leave his basement.“

HOLLY, everyone of you young whore's have your me too story, how you stuck your butt in the air to let the gringo pound both holes, then you spin around and lick up every drop like its the best thing you ever tasted. sometimes you even fight against each other for the right to do it. us old gringos are just buying what you are selling. you sounds bitter, must be you are past the point of being young, and your body after pushing out 4 kids has gone to shit to the point no one wants to see you nude, so now you rage against the very men you once begged to be picked as the one that could lick it up. so sad your life has no meaning past your past.
