    Plus his combative exchange with the auto worker over gun rights was about as un-presidential as you can get

    I'm not Trump fan but Uncle Joe was out of line.

    Philly will get their 2 best players back from injury when the NBA playoffs resume in June instead of April. They will play the Celtics of course in the first round. Another shameful way Boston sports gets screwed by the schedule makers.

    He met the guy at his level a la Harry Truman, Ronald Reagan and others. Might be a tad coarse but not necessarily "unpresidential."

    I don't think Truman or Ronnie threatened to slap a voter.

    Not sure if bad is the correct descriptor here but inept in preparing for and current handling of the situation is pretty fitting.

    And it's really the simple things that would help like not dismantling the pandemic preparedness program in the US or not downplaying the situation in tweets (just as bad as the over the top panic from others) or not having sufficient number of test kits available or not cutting the CDC's global pandemic budget by 80% in 2018 or not having confusing guidance coming out of the CDC to state and local governments on how to and when to test or not placing conditions on how health care workers can access n95 masks when they suspect they may be dealing with a cover patient or so many other missteps.

    To say this situation is/was being handled even adequately is as bad as saying Syria's red line or the Ebola trade ban or Katrina or the Iranian hostages were handled well by past administrations. Sometimes party needs to be pushed aside and crappy work called out. Mismanagement is mismanagement, it doesn't care about affiliation.

    You're right. I wasn't aware of the face-slap part, just the "full of sh*t" quote. A heated moment but he did walk away. I can see how it's hard in that position to keep your cool 100 percent of the time.

    Didn't we have a few of these, the latest in 2009?

    I heard a man on radio this morning who claimed that we'd be better off if our government gave us positive news to calm the fears of the people. The only problem is there are probably less than a handful of people in media who would report anything positive. It doesn't fit their agenda. They'd rather give us the Chinese propaganda instead.

    Speaking of China, one of our sons is married to a Chinese lady (thank God they moved here 6 months ago) and her parents and brother have been on lock-down in Beijing. But there's no way on God's green earth that folks in this country would ever allow that to happen here. They'd be protesting in the streets.

    Yea I was ok with the full of s**t part and the other thing he said. I forget. I'm ok w/ politicians being feisty if someone is misrepresenting their views.

    As a gun owner, I don't agree with everything he wants to do and have questions but I don't think he wants to end the 2nd Amendment. Maybe he does if guarantees he becomes president..who knows.

    Out of respect for the board, we should stop here.
