President Donald Trump says he wasn’t kidding when he stated Saturday night that he had ordered a slowdown in coronavirus testing to prevent cases from rising, he told reporters Tuesday.

Trump made the initial comment at his Oklahoma rally Saturday night, arguing that the higher case numbers from increasing test rates was making the U.S. look bad. White House Trade and Manufacturing Adviser Peter Navarro earlier claimed Trump’s statement was “tongue-in-cheek.” Trump now says it was not.

“I don’t kid,” Trump said Tuesday before boarding Marine One on the White House lawn. “Let me just tell you, let me make it clear. We have got the greatest testing program anywhere in the world. We test better than anybody in the world. Our tests are the best in the world. And we have the most of them.”

Dr. Fauci says coronavirus task force was never asked to slow down testing

Quote
WASHINGTON — American infectious disease expert Dr. Anthony Fauci says neither he nor any members of the White House Coronavirus Task Force have been asked to slow down testing.

The question arose after U.S. President Donald Trump said at a weekend political rally in Oklahoma that he’d asked his aides to slow down testing because it was turning up too many positive cases.

Trump wasn't "kidding", he was trolling. And the usual suspects swallowed the hook, as usual.

And this is the sort of chit only his fans love.  For the rest of us, it's irritating as hell.

They're eager to swallow the hook. As if they have nothing better to do.

PRESS RELEASEJeff Van Drew Consistently Voted Against Trump on Immigration While in Congress

Van Drew received an average grade of 35% based on a series of votes and positions. For example, Van Drew co-sponsored and voted for amnesty legislation, voted for increased visas for foreign workers, and opposed President Trump’s border wall.
Van Drew’s grade of D+ follows a long list of other liberal grades and endorsements. For example, Van Drew received a 100% rating from Planned Parenthood and is currently endorsed by the radical anti-jobs lobby, the Sierra Club.

      It's more than just the usual suspects listening, though. 
      Maybe it's just me, but I doubt that anxious suburban housewives in Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Michigan want to hear quality, top notch trolling from their President during the midst of a pandemic.

Horse manure.    it's not a joke at all.  And I don't know about anyone else here, but I don't want to be entertained by the president.  I want him to do his job and lead.  This president screws around too much.  Doesn't do his job.  If I want entertainment, I'll dig out an old movie or tv show.  I don't want his reality tv presidency.

Applewood, you're being far to kind.
As the days become weeks, first months, then years; it's way beyond obvious that
Trump is an unserious buffoon craving applause 24/7/365; his only motivator in life.
Likely his early tee-vee idols were Howdy Doody whose sidekick was Clarabell Clown,
in full costume and make-up.
