When POTUS asks you to do something, is it really a question? For additional context, in this instance, POTUS is also your boss.
The point is he never asked anyone.

I'm confused about what your position is here. Are you saying:
A) Trump told/asked his people to reduce testing, so he's a fool,
B) Trump didn't tell/ask his people to reduce testing, but just said he did and doubled down on it, so he's a fool
C) Trump did tell/ask people to reduce testing, but not Fauci because they haven't talked in a month, so he's a fool for telling/asking and for not talking to Fauci
C) Trump is a fool for suggesting that reducing testing would solve the country's virus issue
D) Trump is a fool
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

I got the fool part, I'm just trying to understand where you and @S209 differ on what happened.

He is saying Trump never asked Dr F. How could he when he never asked anyone.

So he never asked Dr. Fauci or anyone else, so when he said he asked his people to slow down testing, he was joking, even though he insists he wasn't. And he's a fool.

We all on the same page now?

He didn't ASK anyone. Here it is from @S209
Did you not hear the original line?

ETA: Here are his exact words: “So I said to my people, slow the testing down please“
I have no idea who his people are that he said it to but there was no question asked. He also said he was not joking.
Now @S209 wants to muddy the waters with Dr F who has nothing to do with it.

So he never asked [or told] Dr. Fauci or anyone else [about slowing down testing], so when he said he asked his people to slow down testing, he was joking, even though he insists he wasn't. And he's a fool [who contradicts himself and lies publicly].

We all on the same page now?

FTFM/FTFY. Better?

Requesting an underling to carry out your orders can be referred to as both “asking” or “telling” them what to do. There is NO difference. You’re being ridiculous and I hope you realize it.

Dr. Fauci is the official in charge of implementing the COVID response, so I’m pretty sure anything being requested of “his people” re: testing would have to go through Fauci, who testified that *neither he nor anyone he knows of* was ever told to slow down testing.

Nobody is muddying waters but yourself.

When you ask someone to do something there is no question involved. You are *requesting* something. This is elementary school Language Arts class.

Wow the pretzel you are trying to make. Ask and tell are totally different. Now if you want to look foolish twisting yourself in a pretzel go right ahead.

Dr F probably has not talked to Trump in the last month. You invoked him without even knowing if he talked to Trump.

The fact is Trump in his own words said he was not joking. You try and bring in someone else secondhand when we have firsthand information. Then you claim I am being ridiculous.  ::)

Just to be clear. Are you saying that the following sentences are “totally different”?

I told them to slow down the testing.
I asked them to slow down the testing.


Nobody is twisting anything, I honestly didn’t realize that your issue was with not being able to understand the language. I thought it was more fundamental to the argument. This is just amateur.

Of course they are completely different. Telling someone to do something is not asking them to do something. English 101.
Do you tell your wife to do things or do you ask her.  :P

This is besides the main point. You are confusing the issue by bringing in secondhand info when we have it firsthand.
