Question out of curiosity: Trump is talking about reevaluating the covid-19 situation at the end of 15 days, but what exactly was set for those 15 days? My recollection is that the federal government has just been telling people to be careful and not get together in large groups. So what exactly are they going to reconsider in the next few days, because everything I think Trump is taking issue with from a financial perspective have been choices made on a more local scale like on a state or individual company basis.

Trump to lift the social distancing restrictions "fairly soon." This is irresponsible and disastrous, it will lead to many more American deaths.

Rich people wanting poor people to die so they don't become poor themselves... Oh the irony..

When's the next Purge night? (for those who don't know, that's basically why they started the Purges in the movie series)

Just a guidance for States to follow. Not actual policy. He might have left Federal workers WFH if they can but im not too sure of that.

Kinda unsettling to see such a disparity (in text and visuals) between GW Bush & Trump be so endorsed but okay.  What seems like a slam dunk ad is really Exhibit #192-903848 of the avg. Joe having the long-term memory of a flounder.

I genuinely have no idea what point you're trying to get across here.

I'll expatiate on it.  So the closing line of 'each president will face some type of crisis...this one failed' implicitly suggests--by both the words and visual framing--that GW Bush handled it successfully, by an amorphous metric.  But that seems to run contrary from the general consensus when accessing what he did, short-term and long-term.  The Patriot Act being one such example.  

So, I'm taken aback at the subtle glamorizing that ad seems to do for GW for sake of emphasizing how Trump's the one pres. that failed post-crisis.

In case you needed a reminder that Trump is one of the biggest narcissists in the world:

Honest question: Do you think psychopathy is a valid discussion at this point?
