    Yes there is, it's known as a Darwin Award

Darwin Award winners eliminate themselves in an extraordinarily idiotic manner, thereby improving our species' chances of long-term survival."[2]

Why wouldn't such a statement be sufficient for Pres Trump?
      Why wouldn’t it? Because the haters here would scream that Trump was trying to avoid letting people know what drugs could save them and he was therefore responsible for their deaths. Haven’t you realized that no matter what he does the hatters are going to blame him? There is even one member here who agreed with Trump on a subject and still said he (Trump) was wrong. The member of course was right but Trump was wrong.

        That would be the real intelligence from the intelligence community.
        He gets an intelligence briefing every morning. However, that doesn't mean he reads it or pays attention during a verbal briefing.

        As a former member of Navy Intelligence from 84 - 04, I'm 99% sure he received information on this and he knew the Chinese were lying.
        The moment something like this happened broke out in China, our intelligence would have been working 24/7 to figure out what was going on. They may not have figure it at for a bit, but he knew by Early Jan.

        And do you really think our intelligence is going to take the word of the WHO. **** no.
        Trump has all the tools he needed to make intelligent decisions but he's incapable of intelligent decisions.
        So how did we end up attacking Iraq after 9/11?

          Do you think we would be in a better situation if this had been delayed?

          don't think a democrat would have called the virus a hoax.
          No one has called it a hoax.

            What was Lincoln's quip, something about not satisfying some of the people some of the time, or something like that? There will always be some share of voters who will never like Trump, no matter what he does. Likewise, there was always some share of voters who never liked Obama, no matter what he did. I'm sure there there were some share of voters who did not like Ike -- period. That's politics for you. Still, none of that excuses a sitting president trying to pitch a product. It's just so . . . . unseemly.

              Because you wanted to. Or rather the GWB admin, not least GWB himself, really, really wanted to attack Iraq.

              The powers of auto-suggestion did the rest, with the added advantage of making the US admin at the time totally impervious to doubt or evidence to the contrary, including flat refusal to hear and dismissal of all reasonable doubts and suggestions from US allies.

                There was no travel ban on Jan 31. Trump only blocked Chinese citizens from entering the US. American's were still allowed to travel to and from China, and many did. Americans can transmit the virus just as well as anyone else, so to only target Chinese citizens is not going to stop the spread. Thus, it was nothing more than a political stunt.

                Trump didn't institute an actual travel ban until several months later.

                    When did that become official history? The chief weapons inspector and other experts told Bush repeatedly that there were no WMD's, none were ever found, and Iraq never attacked us, but it's OK if Bush has such a massive intelligence failure, but not Trump? The same Bush who is also responsible for the terrible failure of 9/11? Meanwhile Obama fomented massive racism and gave billions to our sworn terrorist enemies. Trump isn't exactly a saint, but let's be a little more reasonable about accusing him of being The Root Of All Evil. He's not even close.

                    Cain, BTW, to return to what little is left of this thread, was an elderly man with a failing body and a failing immune system. People just like Cain are dying every day from a myriad of problems, including Dat Dreaded Ole' Deb'il COVID, so Cain's death is not really the end of my world, or especially newsworthy and another means of panicking America.

                    None of us gets out of here alive.

                      How? By being the first black president? Careful, your hood is showing.

                        Trump has been inept in his handling of this virus from the beginning when he told Hannity people with the virus should go to work, to encouraging fringe science, and encouraging people not to ware masks.

                        Herman Cain attended the Trump rally and took a pic of himself not waring a mask because he knew Trump would not like it if he wore a mask. He paid the price. We are all paying the price for Trumps criminal handling of this Pandemic.

                        The only solace in this is when the history books are written a hundred years from now, Trump will most likely go down in history in the top 10 of worst presidents.

                          Whatever the flaws of the travel ban - Democrats would have done nothing.

                            They were allowed to come and go as they please.

                            Travel to China was not banned on Jan 31 for Americans.

                              We do not know how things would have been be under a Democrat president. What we DO know is that many countries which did not ban Chinese on January 31st, ended up with much lower death rates than the US. And some Asian countries kept low infection rates without a total ban from China.
