Groups on the left and right are already using President Trump's comments about slowing down testing against him.

Trump critics on both sides of the aisle have used the president’s own words from his Tulsa rally against him in a series of new attack ads, according to HuffPost.

  • President Trump said on Saturday that he told officials to “slow down testing” for the coronavirus to help keep U.S. case numbers lower.
  • Progressive PAC MeidasTouch called Trump’s admission “mass murder on a national scale” in its ad:

  • The Lincoln Project, a group founded by anti-Trump Republicans, also made use of the president’s words in an ad, saying: “The most deceptive, lying president in history finally told the truth. Somehow, it was more shocking than all his deceptions.”

  • Priorities USA, which HuffPost noted is “the preferred Super PAC for the campaign of former Vice President Joe Biden,” used Trump’s words in at least two new ads.
  • In one, the voiceover says, “The most important job of a president is to protect the American people, but not to Donald Trump. Instead of working to slow the spread, Donald Trump says he slowed down the testing. Now, over 120,000 dead.”

Huffpost noted that White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany and campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh tried to claim that the president’s comments “were ‘tongue-in-cheek,’ ‘made in jest’ and ‘ironic humor.’”

But Trump himself said that this was not the case, telling reporters: “I don’t kid. Let me just tell you. Let me make it clear.”

THE SADIST’S GASCONADE ON COVID-19

By the day Rampant Pandemic COVID-19 killed 120,000 Americans, Donald Trump held his first 2020 presidential campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma, where sycophants wore no masks, ignored social distancing, and screamed support in juicy clamor.

“So, I said to my people, ‘Slow the testing down, please!’“ Trump decried. His bombast sprayed the sycophants. “ — To improve the numbers!” he crowed later to his staff.

“Was that in jest? Tongue in cheek?” reporters questioned.

“Lemme make it clear! I don’t kid!“ Trump replied. “Testing’s, frankly, overrated !”

Sadists derive pleasure by inflicting pain on others.
Murder is killing with malice aforethought.
Serial killer, Jeffrey Dahmer’s got nothing on Trump.
Sadist Trump’s a mass murderer.
