    Mike Pence calls, FEMA calls. these people are helping. but the media was only interested in part of the quote that they could use against Trump, and people reading that believed that was it.






    media driven narrative: Trump has done nothing, orange man bad.

    reality..




    https://www.whitehouse.gov/briefings...us-task-force/
    Statement from the Press Secretary Regarding the President’s Coronavirus Task Force
    Issued on: January 29, 2020

    Today, President Donald J. Trump announced the formation of the President’s Coronavirus Task Force.






    this is how I expect the President to act..

    https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/don...hings-n1171536

    Trump extends social distancing guidelines to April 30, predicts 'great things' by June 1
    President Donald Trump announced Sunday that he's extending his administration's guidelines on social distancing during the COVID-19 outbreak until April 30.

    Trump said last week that he wanted to see much of the country return to normal by Easter, April 12, despite warnings from top health experts that easing the guidelines too soon could cause widespread deaths and economic damage.

    Trump said Friday that he would consult with his administration's top medical experts on whether to extend or change the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines on slowing the spread of the coronavirus.

    But on Sunday, Trump said that the Easter target date was "just an aspiration" and that he expects "great things to be happening" by June 1. Instead, Trump said he believes Easter will mark "the peak number, and it should start coming down, hopefully very substantially at that point."

    Trump said his administration felt Easter "was too soon" and "we can't take a chance."

    Instead, Trump said he felt June 1 would mark "the bottom of the hill."

    Dr. Deborah Birx, the coordinator of the White House coronavirus task force, said the choice to extend the guidelines had not been made lightly.

    "We know it's a huge sacrifice for everyone," she said, adding that more detailed guidance will be released Tuesday.
    Trump made a decision while still having hope for the American people.

    Trump, as most presidents do, lays blame on past administrations (just as you new boss probably lays some blame on your old boss [and every sports coach will criticize the last coach]). Whie this is wrong, it is always inevitable.

    People like you, of course, need to take it to another level by making it racial. As if Trump succeeding a whitey president would have handed it any differently. I guess in you mind they all sit around the big table in the Situation Room figuring out ways to stik ta dem coloreds.

    remember when Trump mentioned Hydroxychloroquine and was criticized for it.

    https://www.sciencemag.org/news/2020...gs-coronavirus

    ‘This is insane!’ Many scientists lament Trump’s embrace of risky malaria drugs for coronavirus
    fast forward the recent news..

    https://www.politico.com/news/2020/0...ia-drug-155095

    FDA issues emergency authorization of anti-malaria drug for coronavirus care
    The Food and Drug Administration on Sunday issued an emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine, decades-old malaria drugs championed by President Donald Trump for coronavirus treatment despite scant evidence.

    The agency allowed for the drugs to be "donated to the Strategic National Stockpile to be distributed and prescribed by doctors to hospitalized teen and adult patients with COVID-19, as appropriate, when a clinical trial is not available or feasible," HHS said in a statement, announcing that Sandoz donated 30 million doses of hydroxychloroquine to the stockpile and Bayer donated 1 million doses of chloroquine.

    The move was supported by the White House, part of a larger Trump-backed effort to speed the use of anti-malaria drugs as a potential therapy for a virus that has no proven treatment or cure. FDA already has allowed New York state to test administering the medication to seriously ill patients, and some hospitals have added it to their treatment protocols.

    "Let's see how it works," Trump said at a press briefing on Sunday, referencing New York state's efforts. "It may. It may not."

    "Scientists in America and around the world have identified multiple potential therapeutics for COVID19, including chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine," HHS Secretary Alex Azar tweeted on Sunday night, praising Trump and the EUA.
    how are Democrats handing this?

    Interesting article on line yesterday in the MSNBC landing page……

    Seems as if back in 2010 or 2012 the US contracted to buy thousands of ventilators from some Japanese owned California company for a reasonable price. Over time, the company was bought by another American company that also sold ventilators but at a higher price. That company then told the government that they could not sell the ventilators for the original agree upon price and asked out of the contract (so I guess a contract isn't a contract). Bottom lie is that the ventilators were never made and at this stage nobody knows nuttin.

    Another story revealed that some warehouse that had many ventilators stockpiled for a period of time now had to spend quite a bit to have them repaired due to lack of use.

    I mentioned in another post that if, a year ago, the government had a million ventilators in warehouses around the country, some (and many people here) would complain about how much $$$ was tied up in assets while children are in cages at the border.

    Overall point here is that no government or administration could have been properly prepared for what has happened.

    Look at what happened in Puerto Rico last year. Anyone surprised at that? Look at Puerto Rico on a map…what do you think the chances of them eventually getting hit by a hurricane. Pretty good, I would say. Yet they were totally unprepared for what happened down there. Whose fault was that? Whose fault that their electrical grid was a joke or that their governments were packed with corruption.

    New Orleans before Katrina…a major city below sea level with water held back by dikes. Not a good move. But, hey, let's party on Bourbon Street. Money earmarked to improve the dikes "mysteriously" found its way into scenic developments along Lake Ponchartrain. How did that happen??

    Two examples of obvious disasters waiting to happen, where it was just a matter of time, where nothing was done beforehand to ease the burden of what was to come.

    No one could have seen the corona virus coming and no one could have prepared for what was to happen. Could Trump have prepared a little better…probably. But that question is being answered in hindsight. No on knows what Obama would have done, or Bush, or Clinton or Reagan. I think all of them would have gotten more fair coverage from the press (blood on his hands, murderer, people are dying because of… really???)

    I think Obama, Clinton and Reagan would have explained it better, would have had a more calming effect. But other than that, I don't know (and neither does anyone here) know what they would have done differently or better.

    The orange turd doesn't know the difference between a ventilator and a generator.

    He also calls it "threatening" when a reporter quotes him on comments he actually said . What a snowflake.

    It's a joke based on this: https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/trump-wet-his-pants/

    But what I'm saying is that he's a damn laughing stock and embarrasses himself and us on a daily basis. Just about every time he speaks, he says something that is at best wrong and at worst a manipulative.

    Just look at how he went out the other day and accused doctors of stealing masks and other PPE.

    you mean the media that has been wrong. they only care about their political agenda.

    https://www.foxnews.com/media/trump-...ng-threatening

    President Trump had a contentious back-and-forth with a reporter during his Rose Garden briefing Sunday on the coronavirus, suggesting that the media's overall coverage has been too negative.

    PBS correspondent Yamiche Alcindor questioned the president about remarks he made during an interview last week with Fox News' Sean Hannity about the high volume of medical equipment that governors had requested for their states.

    "You said repeatedly that you think that some of the equipment that governors are requesting, they don't actually need," Alcindor began. "You said New York might not need 30,000--"

    "I didn't say that," Trump reacted.

    "Why don't you people act... a little more positive? It's always just trying to getcha, getcha, getcha," the president then complained. "That's why no one trusts the media anymore... That's why you used to work for the Times and now you work for somebody else." Alcindor moved from the Times to PBS a couple of years ago.

    He continued, "Look, let me tell you something... be nice. Don't be threatening. Don't be threatening. Be nice."

    Trump insisted his administration was doing a "great job" at filling ventilator orders. "But just so you know, you, me, we're all on the same team. When journalists get up, and you're a fine journalist -- when journalists get up and ask questions that are so threatening, we're all on the same team."

    He continued, "Take a look at my interview. What I want to do is, if there is something wrong, we have to get to the bottom of it."

    Last Thursday, President Trump suggested to Hannity that the demand for ventilators will end up being higher than what's actually needed.

    "I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be. I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go into major hospitals sometimes and they'll have two ventilators. And now, all of a sudden they're saying, 'Can we order 30,000 ventilators?'" Trump said to Hannity.
    this from Cuomo..

    https://www.foxnews.com/transcript/l...pening-america

    REPORTER: Were there ventilators found in a storage facility or something that the president is claiming that there were ventilators found that they need to be distributed? Is there any truth to that?

    GOV. ANDREW CUOMO (D-NY): That is -- that is incorrect, and grossly uninformed. The point is, we have ventilators in a stockpile and we didn't send them to the hospitals yet. Of course, we didn't. That's the whole point. The hospitals don't need them yet.
    this is what Cuomo said, I did a search and found a user on twitter with the video..

    Trump doesn't speak well. There is no question about that. I've said many times that he never has mastered, and never will master, politispeak. That is the art of saying a lot, while at the same time, not really saying all that much if anything at all. Most politicians master this. He never will.

    To that add the fact that every reporter out there is trying to "catch" him on something. Coming up with the proverbial smoking gun. (Re: smoking gun…Maddow and Joy Behar were apoplectic over some tax return that showed nothing). They made an issue out of a PR move by going up to see the hospital ship off to NYC. Trump was wasting time and showboating and taking a chance on getting the virus. Hillary would have been "showing strength in a crisis" or "leading from the front." Obama would have been shown in a serious and pensive mood looking down wrapped in concern as the ship steamed off to save New Yorkers (probably would have waited for [or photoshopped in] a beaytiful sunset. Remember Clintonn stacking little stones on the beach of Normandy for a D Day Celebration. Lost in his thoughts oa Americans storming the beaches,

    Trump gets no coverage like this. The situation is bleak and he's trying (or tryna for some of you) to show some semblance of hope. Something positive. And the press is all over him for that. Could he do a better job of that PR part of this…sure. Obama would have handled this part of the crises much better. Possibly behind the scenes Trump is doing a great job in getting industry into gear for needed products and the medical field the support they need. it's quite possible in this area he is a better leader than others were.

    I let two employees go on Friday (furloughed, whatever that means). One guy was in tears. Spent a good deal of time trying to make him feel a little better. Told him we would take him back when this is over (Guess what…that may not be possible) Extended pay for two weeks and medical insurance for two months. Suggested he may want to move back in with his parents. Tried to give him ideas to cut costs.

    This stuff isn't easy. And that was for two people. Trump is trying to stand out in front of 300 million+ people and offer some assurances. Some of these newscasters may want to show a little more support instead of spouting "blood on his hands."

    No slick fancy news reporter made Trump accuse doctors of stealing medical supplies. He did that all on his own. Listen, either own up to being the personal responsibility party or stop expecting others to be personally responsible. Trump said that the supplies were being stolen or taken. Not someone from the New York Times or Washington Post. Maggie Habberman didn't force the words from Trump's lips. Trump forced them out. This isn't an issue of eloquence or high society learnin'. This is a matter of a president who thinks that nothing he does is wrong and grasps at any straw he can find to make everything that happens someone else's problem. He's the "the buck stops with some other guy" president.

    They probably were being stolen or taken.

    In the military, we would have called this "appropriating," happened all the time.

    I don't know (and neither do you) but if I had to guess…

    A hospital worker seeing a case of masks laying around would think nothing of grabbing a case for his unit in the hospital.

    On the same vein…it would not surprise me to see someone (hospital worker or otherwise) seeing a case of masks laying around and they grab some to supply family or friends…or even sell them.

    Can you not see how this could happen???? Is it really beyond the realm of possibility????

    And Trump reports this and it is a big deal??? Why????
