Joe Biden, President Trump, China discussed on Quick News Daily Podcast
Another sign of the times and what a perilous position we're actually in the scientific American has broken with its tradition not endorsing anyone for president in their one, hundred, seventy, five year history the scientific American has never endorsed anyone for president but they broke that rule yesterday and endorsed Joe Biden citing the fact that trump gets completely ignored all of the science on climate change as well as openly admitted to ignoring the science on Corona virus to help his reelection chances. Man If even the scientists are getting involved, you know were really really tough spot as a country. Lastly here that trump townhall that took place on ABC last night it was moderated by George Stephanopoulos into win about as well as you thought, it might have trump constantly lying sometimes the voters were actually. Fact checking them in real time, which was nice. Here's one of the highlights mass has proven to. Lessen. It spread of Covid why don't you support a mandate from national mask wearing and why don't you wear a mask more often? Will. I do wear them when I have to and women hospitals and other locations I will say this They said at the Democrat convention they're going to do a national mandate. They never did it because they've checked out and they didn't do it and a a good question as you ask like, Joe Biden. They said we're going to do a national mandate on hold on governors to have them. It is a state was that he? He didn't do it I mean he never did it. Now there is by the way, a lot of people don't want to wear masks are a lot of people think masks are not good and there are a lot of people that as an example, you have those people I'll tell you who those people are waiters they come over and they serve you and they have a mask and I saw it the other day where they were serving me and they're playing with a mask. I'm not blaming that I'm just saying what happens they're playing with a mask the mask is over and they're. Touching it and Touching the plate that can't be good. There are a lot of people if you look at Dr Fao Cheese original statement you look at a lot of people CDC you look at a lot of people's original statement they said very strongly George don't wear masks. Then all of a sudden they went to wear masks. The. Concept of a mask is good but it also does you constantly touching it. You're touching your face you're touching plates. There are people that don't think masks are good. Because Joe Biden. President. Who could have done that? It's you man like you're the one who could have done a national mask mandate. You're the president for now not Joe Biden another one here here she's from Pittsburgh Pennsylvania, and she hasn't voted before how will you Hello Hi my question is if you believe it's president's responsibility to protect. America. Why would you downplay a pandemic? That is known to disproportionately harm low income families and minority communities. Well, I didn't downplay it I actually in many ways. I. Played it in terms of action by at. What I did was with China I put a ban on with Europe, I put a ban on and we would have lost thousands of more people had I not put the ban on. So that was called action not with the mouth, but in actual fact. We did have very, very good job when we put that ban on whether you call the talent or luck it was very important. So we saved a lot of lives when we did that there were holes in the ban in the European bandon come for another month while they were Americans I, mean the holes in if you have somebody in China that's an American citizen we had to let them in. This one I mean it's just too easy. I wanted to always play it down. Yeah. That's your own voice on the tape man you admitted to downplaying not anyone else last one here with time it goes any deaths and you'll develop. You'll developed hurt like a herd mentality it's going to be it's going to be heard developed and that's going to happen. And if we did follow that approach, I think we might have two million people dead the fact Checker for CNN Daniel Dale who made a huge splash after the Republican national convention in Trump's speech when he went on that like three minute rants about all the lies in that speech well, he was back at it last night again, this time for this town home he does address things that have already brought up here, but it's just easy to let the mango and not really interrupt his stream of consciousness. Let's take a listen Daniel. Let me bring you in because you've been busy fact checking the townhall what stood out to you. There just so much lying down I'M GONNA go quickly here literally stopped me whenever you need to. He said again, Democrats won't protect people with preexisting conditions. That is nonsense as a voter told him Democrats created those protections he insisted he didn't phrase China on the virus he did. So repeatedly we know that he claimed that nobody knew at the time he was praising China that seniors were especially susceptible to the virus that was one of the first things we learn to China and out of Italy out of the US he claimed that Biden said in March That the pandemic was totally over exaggerated I can find no evidence that Biden ever said that he said Winston Churchill was kind of like him playing down stuff because he went on rooftops in London during the Nazi bombing and told people everything's going to be good. Churchill. Did Not speak from the rooftops and did not say everything's going to be good. He warned of suffering endanger trump said he fired James Mattis matters resigned. He said that protesters took over twenty percent of Seattle. It was a six block area nor close to twenty percent. He took credit again. For sending in the National Guard in Minneapolis, saying that this happened after a week and a half a violence there, it was not even close to a week and a half days and the Democratic governor is the one who activated the guard. He said he essentially repeal obamacare by getting rid of the individual mandate not even close to true the Medicaid expansion preexisting conditions, protections other stuff remains. He said, the cupboards were empty of ventilators. His administration admits he inherited about sixteen thousand from Obama. He did his usual false boasts about so-called bans on travel from China. And Europe they were not complete bands. He said stocks are owned by quote everybody just about half of Americans. Own stocks he repeated his nonsense about testing causing cases testing merely reveals and helps fight hase's he said that Biden has agreed to a Bernie Sanders style socialized healthcare. He fought sanders on that issue he has very much not agreed to Sandra style plan, and this is a preliminary list I. Have our the fact checking tonight to do because there is even more than this. This was just a fire hose of lying again from the president do drink water. I Apologize View it was like an hour about an hour and a half townhall and Like every. Line just false or misleading is crazy. Okay and then well, let's talk about what he said about crime listener with the president said about crime tonight. Here it is. If you're going to stop crime. We have to give the the respect back to the police that they deserve. They've done a fantastic job in so many locations but then bad things happen look at New York New York was a very safe city rudy. Giuliani data fantastic job the city was safe, and then all of a sudden we have a Mary starts cutting the police force and grime is up one hundred, percent one, hundred and fifty percent. I saw one form of crime up three, hundred percent. What are the facts Daniel? There have been spikes in certain kinds of crime in new. York. City this year particularly shootings where there's an more than one hundred percent increase, not a three, hundred percent increase but substantial the thing to remember though that crime has fallen hugely since even Giuliani's final year. So Giuliani presided over a decrease then there's been a subsequent big decrease. So last year in two, thousand nineteen, there are fewer than half the murders under bill de Blasios on the war in the last year of Giuliani. So yes, this year has been an increase, but the city is still way safer than it was Giuliani's last year in two thousand one. Well. There you go. Don't let facts get in the way of a good story.
