Trump Guarantees Ebola Outbreak in the US – No, It’s Not the Onion.

February 02, 2018 By: El Jefe Category: Trump

Yesterday, the Trump administration announced that it would like to guarantee an Ebola outbreak in the US this year.  As we all know, Ebola is a highly contagious and deadly disease.  During the last African outbreak, the US lead the way with other OECD countries to fund prevention, treatment, and screening at the source to protect our own shores.  We only had one actual case of Ebola and a couple of American doctors treated here who had contracted the disease in Africa.

Welp, ol’ Trumpie thinks all that disease prevention stuff is a waste of money, and to make it easier for Ebola to reach our shores next time, he’s just slashed 80 PERCENT of disease outbreak prevention spending from the CDC’s budget.  Isn’t that just a fine idea?  Yeah, I think the same thing.

  1. May he and his sycophants be so lucky to experience the outbreak.

  2. ….and when it happens, it will be Obama’s fault. Or maybe Hillary’s.

  3. And I am not actually surprised. Not even mildly amused. Just disgusted.

  4. You have failed to give Trump credit for the inherent efficiency of this distressful move. He essentially gets a two-fer. He assures the deaths of perhaps hundreds of thousands of black Africans while saving money for his own projects in the US, which of course includes diminishing the number of black and white anti-Trump voters in this country.

    Donnie needs an Ebola outbreak. The Nunes memo is out and Donnie seriously needs another shiny object to distract the press from what’s really going on.

    Misdirection, prestidigitation, …. and time for some regurgitation.

    It’s not just ebola, of course, though that’s probably the scariest disease we know of that could reach the US again if outbreaks aren’t contained where they start. We are having a bad outbreak of the flu this year, but what if one of the viruses mutates and we get something like the 1918 pandemic? What the CDC was doing before Trump stopped it would have given us, maybe, a little time to develop a vaccine against it, like the shots we get every year. This latest Trump pronouncement is incredibly short sighted, and putting the world at greater risk.

    Every day it’s something new and surprising. Trump prevents boredom. I could use more boredom. I could use not worrying that he’s gonna start a thermonuclear war. I could use him not taking away tips from food servers. More boredom!

    Can it be guaranteed that traitor trump and his whole family come down with Ebola first? Followed by unchristian pence and the rest of the treasonous rethuglican leadership? And not one innocent American?

    Gloria Copeland, of the evangelical advisory board, says you don’t need flu vaccine if you have Jesus. “Inoculate yourself with the word of God.” Although I’m sure tRump and his spawn have been jabbed with every vaccine there is.

    These people will kill us all and sell our bodies for parts if they get the chance.
