Basically, Trumps characterization of NZ's 11 new cases in 2 days as a "massive outbreak". His typical bloviating bag of non-specifics and fear marketing in an effort to make himself look better than everyone else.
At least you have to give him the coming out of it and still manage to re-build the empire over again
EDIT: I will give you too, that I don't known if he was the one re-building the empire or only the visible face of it
If something has a solution... Why do we have to worry about?. If it has no solution... For what reason do we have to worry about?
Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
He said $9B or $10B back in 2016 when he announced. I seriously doubt it's anywhere close to there, but instead probably around $1B. Of course, I have no proof of this, just like he refuses to give any proof himself.
False equivalency. A single instance of testing a filament for a light bulb is NOT a business.
Oh, and how many businesses did Edison bankrupt? Technically, one, in 1894:
"The phonograph was initially marketed as a business dictation machine. Entrepreneur Jesse H. Lippincott acquired control of most of the phonograph companies, including Edison's, and set up the North American Phonograph Co. in 1888. The business did not prove profitable, and when Lippincott fell ill, Edison took over the management. In 1894, the North American Phonograph Co. went into bankruptcy, a move which allowed Edison to buy back the rights to his invention."
'politician' is just a task description nowadays, not a qualification. Anyone can be one, and in fact, all types of people try their hand at it. It's the go-to-job for anyone who hasn't learned a proper job but can still afford (to rent) a suit.
GOTOs are a bit like wire coat hangers: they tend to breed in the darkness, such that where there once were few, eventually there are many, and the program's architecture collapses beneath them. (Fran Poretto)
But few people get it. I remember an interview with Thomas Sowell in which he said, not a direct quote, but close: "We expect our presidents to be economists, generals, spiritual leaders, businessmen, philanthropists, educators...it would be funny if it wasn't so tragic."
He has taught us all a lesson with that concept. If you tell it like it is and, in fact, it isn't, then tell something else. His true believers are just that - believers. "Double Think is real" - there was a song, once upon a time: "Cult of Personality[^]".
I remember the background video[^]- Sometimes it was showing the band - other times . . . . let's just say "other things" (SFW).
