Why do Republicans think this stupid argument absolves Trump of anything?

Republicans are still trying to excuse Donald Trumpís deadly mismanagement of the coronavirus pandemic. As such, theyíve fixated on the ďlab leakĒ theory of the virusóthat the Chinese either deliberately or accidentally released the virus from a lab in Wuhan.




Remember, nothing is ever Trumpís fault. It was the mediaís fault. It was the Democratsí fault. And now, itís Chinaís fault. If only China hadnít leaked that virus, people wouldnít have turned against Trump. Or, so Lindsey Graham and MAGA nation believes.

Except, distressingly enough, the pandemic didnít much change any minds about Trump, and, even if the lab leak (conspiracy?) theory is true, it would paint Trump in even a worse light:

Itís one thing to be unprepared for an unforeseen natural disaster. Itís another to be attacked by a foreign adversary and fail to protect our nation. In other words, if Graham and Trump are right, then Trump didnít keep us safe.

1. It's all they've got

All we need is need bigger majorities in Congress. The battle lines are being drawn.

2. I swear to Christ, if any GQP asshat says that to my face...

They better run, better be in really good shape and better never stop running, because I will chase them like Ahab after Moby Dick to spit my last breath at thee...

3. I'm coming with a cattle prod for all of the Texas GOP - if you see someone chasing a GOP

elected Senator or Rep - it's me. Herd them into a small corral and take some pictures.

5. Tbh - we don't even know for sure that it started in China -

there is evidence that it was in Europe in other places before it was noticed in Wuhan.

12. +1 And what killed half a million Americans was the deliberately bad response by Trump.

New viruses will continue to emerge from random places, forever. What matters is our willingness to respond.

7. Exactly.

Is there such a thing as De-evolution? I think most of these trumpers' thumbs have disappeared. Next, they'll grow larger cranial ridges and start walking all stooped over and shit.

13. "Is there such a thing as De-evolution?

Yes, and it is happening in current time. I watched my sister and middle brother go from sane, calm, rational people to insane spittal producing tRump zealots in 5+ years. I don't fully understand it, and to be honest, I hope never do!

8. Why? The whole Republican record of support for Trump involves stupid arguments

and believing outright lies.

It's been an uphill battle, but a growing majority of the electorate is coming to the point where the GOP, if it can't shake Trump, loses its position as the "other" major party.

15. The image the public had about Trump

is one of a man who downplayed the seriousness of the virus as they watched their relatives die. The source of the virus is not the point. It was all so obvious how it had to do with the election, that everyone who could see clearly rejected him and formed a coalition to elect Biden.
