Trump: Health and Human Services watchdog produced "fake dossier" on coronavirus

Source: Reuters

WASHINGTON — U.S. President Donald Trump on Tuesday accused a federal health department watchdog as having produced a "fake dossier" with a report that confirmed hospitals nationwide faced "substantial challenges" including shortages of equipment and staff.

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services inspector general surveyed 323 hospitals March 23-27 and concluded they had insufficient capacity to handle the surge of coronavirus patients.

Trump implied the inspector general was politically motivated and, in a tweet, asked why she had not spoken to admirals, generals, the vice president or others in charge "before doing her report," adding "Another Fake Dossier."

of ALL the inspectors General. Well, of course he does. He does not like anybody looking into his corrupt, evil, killing activities.

11. The new normal. However outrageous, it gets barely a blink. We need a new standard

for politicians: they will be removed if they engage in any significant, provable lie. Yeah, right, if only.

Certainly the vow to serve in the public interest means nothing to any repulslicans.

12. BD's getting ready to build his OWN dossier to rewrite his legacy. We know what's up.

His dossier will be the playbook on faking alt-right framing and fact suppression, and how to pre-report before actually writing any IG report.

This "new" dossier is the playbook for his Iron Curtain Five.

28. EXACTLY!!!

Why the fuck do people in general not simply tune him the fuck out and focus on people who 1) tell the truth, 2) propose plans to correct the issues we face, and 3) don't happen to sport a penis or testicles?

This country should be ashamed for the lack of overall support our women candidates received and still the lack of respect shown to them in general. I would take a country led by Kloubachar, Harris or Warren over this current shit storm every day of the week and twice on Sundays!

Anyone who actually listens to Trump is a waste of time, anyone who BELIEVES him is an evolutionary dead-end...

39. May I introduce you to America's underbelly?

It has been there all along.

Now it has been given permission to speak as if it is the TRUE America.

If ANYONE should be forced BACK into the closet, then the door nailed shut and the house set on fire, it should be THESE pathetic excuses for humans. Yes, closets CAN be used for GOOD, as long as you also have the hammer, nails and a book of matches. I still remember mine (not so fondly), BEFORE I took the door off the hinges.. just in case...

Polite society needs to let these cretins know what is thought of them. I want to hear them whining and complaining of being shunned and persecuted. So I can reply, "EXCUSE ME, you obviously mistook me for someone who gives a fuck. You fucking NAZI."

17. " why she had not spoken to admirals, generals, the vice president or others in charge"?

Because this is about the Department of Health and Human Services, not the military, you dumbass. Can't you even construct a political attack on someone competently? And why speak to the VP when your job is to check if HHS or anyone temporarily given relevance to it is doing their job, not to make them look good? Does this asshole even know what "inspector" means?

22. Donny Dimwit is a functionally insane member of his

nutcase GOP who have purposely dismantled oversight of long-term storage of emergency caches, federal and military, (dry rotted products/expired dates of use, really?) and encouraged the corporate business policies of point-of-sale and just-in-time inventories of reserves to avoid the costs and maximize their opportunities for profit. Is it any wonder they've stalled things while they all turn privateers and smugglers? Yeah, federal agencies really have agendas to produce "fake dossier(s)." Like I said - mentally deranged by pride, greed, lust, wrath, gluttony, envy, and sloth -- and functionally insane! Either he's like all the victims in "Seven" rolled into one homo sapien or the failed AI bot experiment of a mad Republican IT developer!

25. This Is Just Too Damn Much

Talking to the political operatives would not have produced an independent analysis, as require by law. Proper procedures were followed as you have to go to the source and get first hand accounts -- not some 3rd hand account as Trump demands. The idea is to let the chips fall where they may. After all, those 323 hospitals could have reported that they were in good shape but it turns out that was not the case. The next step is to find out why.

In the same way that they see the media as fabricated information as Trump continually tells them “fake news...”

This deceitfully crafting a meme among his thugs.

This slow rolling coup is being carried out in plain view.
The cons seem to be backpedaling as fast they can to rewrite history.
We can never forget.
There can be no "move forward" until/unless
we can rip everything open and disinfect with sunlight!!
What's done in the dark will come to the light.

33. One thing I'm wondering - is part of what's going on with trump is that he really, truly has

no idea of the truth of what's happening with all the difficulties hospitals are having, because all the sycophants around him keep telling him everything is going great?

It could be that all the bullshit he constantly spouts is simply him repeating directly what the people around him tell him? From all the staff members who are too afraid of his tantrums and rages to give him anything but phony good news?
