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.
If to you they are totally different sentences then we’re at an impasse until a third party linguist decides the matter. @Yehuda57 ? Do we have any linguists on board?

Trump said something tongue in cheek. How do we know it was tongue in cheek? Because Fauci testified that it wasn’t true. Him doubling down does nothing for me. It’s a joke.

If you need someone to say ask/tell are not the same then impasse is not the problem.

  • Location: As always, silence is NOT an admission of agreement on DDF. It just means that people lack the stamina to keep on arguing with made up "facts", illogical arguments, deceiving statements, nasty and degrading comments, and fuzzy math. - @yelped
When POTUS asks you to do something, is it really a question? For additional context, in this instance, POTUS is also your boss.
When you find yourself agreeing with me more often than not, it's time for a cheshbon hanefesh.

Umm. It was always set to expire now. Texas in particular said they do not want the federal states but are working on a better testing process. I’m unaware of the other states’ opinions but are you insinuating that FEMA is dismantling the sites as a method of lowering testing numbers? Keep drinking the Kool Aid :P

You’re digging your grave deeper. I was being kind by equating our sides and offering judgement to a third party.

Spoiler alert: It’s you in the wrong.

Spoiler alert: It’s you with the comprehension issue.
Would you like to bet they mean the same? Money goes to charity.
I am now going to be blunt. You have lost your mind if you think those two words mean the same thing!!!  :P

The words can mean different things in context. The two sentences I offered meant the same thing. Sure I’ll gladly give $10 to the coronavirus charity campaign of your choice from the other thread if someone we agree to judge neutrally says that those sentences don’t mean the same thing.

Here are options that work for me: @Dan @Lurker @Yehuda57 @AsherO @AJK @jj1000 @YitzyS @Euclid @yuneeq @yelped @PlatinumGuy @Ergel (names that come off the top of my head)

Pick any one or more to be judge.

Here is the exact question:

In the context of Trump telling people who work for him to slow down the testing, do the following sentences mean the same thing or are they “totally different”?

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

Here we go with the pretzels. There are two words, ask and told. They don't mean the same thing.
Do you want to bet on that or not?

That wasn’t the question, the question was if the sentences mean the same thing. You’re the one twisting into pretzels. The question and answer before was very clear and simple.

Oh so now they mean different things depending on what the person meant? The question is what the sentences mean. In English.

So to be clear, are you retracting what you said before that they are “totally different”?

You lost your mind. The only difference is the two words. They are totally different. Now we can play your games on what "totally" means.
Ask your wife if they are different. When she says they are then tell her they are not.  :P
