The numbers in my county are climbing like crazy.  The Rocket Launch & Memorial Day, brought thousands to the area and many people were packed in tight.  :raincloud: :dohdohdoh:

I've not yet attempted to locate the full transcript, to check whether what was said here is mitigated by any surrounding context; but assuming for the moment it can be taken at face value, then:  :WTF:

NOW they admit testing affects number of cases?

When it can be spun as negative against Trump?

Lol. I'll wait for context. Not in a hurry.

That sounds pretty stupid, the Oregon county thing exempting non-white people. Sounds like discrimination actually.

More stupidity here:

Why is it stupid to explain that more testing means we find more cases of infection, and if we had tested less, we would've found fewer cases? It's a statement of fact. At what point does he say more testing is a bad thing? People are jumping on his nuts because numbers are going up, and he's telling them WHY.

The left has been slamming trump for saying that and publishing stories headlined "Trump thinks less testing is a good idea because then we'll have less cases". There's 20some stories like that, so if you read and agree with all of those beforehand then you might be inclined to reinterpret his tweet.

Right, I've seen apolitical tweets from virologists months ago cautioning what to expect as testing increases:

 - expect case numbers to increase
 - expect IFR to decrease (Infection Fatality Rate)

Obvious stuff.

My concern with the Trump clip I'd posted earlier in the thread from his recent rally in Tulsa, was where he said he'd "told my people to slow the testing down, please." (I don't know to what extent he was joking, or if he literally did that.)

You witnessed something apolitical? Congrats.  :bravo:

Quite an accomplishment. Not joking.

Yeah, his staff said he was joking. Then during those questions by the helicopter they asked him about it, but I can't even hear the question on my phone:

https://www.c-span.org/video/?473328-1/president-trump-protesters-deface-monuments-face-long-term-jail-sentences

He replies "I don't kid" at about 4:00, but his explanation afterward is congruent with focalor's interpretation. Of course it produced another dozen headlines saying the opposite though.

You know which side I'm taking on this, MAGA 4LYFE!!

Imagine the video doesn't exist.

Replace "trump supporters" with "black people"

Re-read your statement.

Realize generalizing is wrong.

Identify why you are doing so.

My guess? Allowing emotions to cloud logical thinking.

I've been guilty of this myself so I'm not Mr. High and mighty over here. I got emotional just last night over the defacing of the SRV statue. It happens. Just try not to generalize. It doesn't help anyone. And it would be best to do the opposite; help everyone.

I was joking (I don't blame you for it not being obvious :P)

I have family (most of my family actually) that are Trump supporters, and none of them are anywhere remotely like that.
