    Look up the meaning of "WAS." Maybe you'll sleep better.

    I suspect some of you have trouble getting decent jobs…or course, it's never your fault.

    I hope the tips are good.
    I’ve worked at some of the biggest companies in the world, and some of your hiring practices would be grounds for immediate termination at a managerial level of any of the companies.

    He essentially is saying that in order to cater to potential racist/bigoted clients, he will employ racist/bigoted hiring practices.

    Sluggo has a point, as a business owner he very well may lose business from clients who do not want to deal with a muslim woman, or a black man. That's true. Bit it's still employing racist/bigoted hiring practice. Should at least admit that much.

    Donald Trump's Presidency (Continued)

    I respect the libertarian view where a business owner should hire whoever the **** they want. Sluggo way seems two faced. He sees reverse racism everywhere and is offended by it all the while defending and making excuses for racism

    And he smashes together legit reasons with bias reasons.

    I also wouldn’t hire say an assistant who can’t speak well when they need to be answering the phone, speaking to clients, etc but throwing in the part about being black with a “weird” hairdo is the racist part. Hopefully he figured out how to communicate that effectively himself before he end up in court.

    Hes like, I dont wanna hire someone that looks like a homeless crack whore, and I dont wanna hire someone that looks like a muslim. He doesn't understand how we can agree with the first, yet not the second.

    To him it's the same ****! [emoji23][emoji23]

    Exactly. He’s basically saying “I don’t see why we need all these protections to keep Muslims from being discriminated against” while also saying “we should be able to discriminate against Muslims”, and seems incapable of seeing how the second part is the reasoning for the first part.

    Wonder why.

    I want people that died for something other than Coronavirus to not be included in the death toll for Coronavirus.

    how is that hard to accept. people should want the numbers to be accurate, unless there is some ulterior motive.

    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????
    Could this have happened? To a small degree maybe. I work in multiple hospitals and there was a disappearance of some PPE which very quickly led to a tighter control on the general stock. But even then, if there was an appropriate amount of PPE and staff were taking it then they wouldn’t be complaining about not having enough. The fact is that there isn’t enough PPE for something like this because we chose not to prepare for something like this. So now I have to handle and reuse PPE that may be contaminated. There is talk of sterilizing PPE and other single use equipment despite concerns this may make it less effective. The unwillingness of Trump to direct the federal government to oversee the distribution means that there is no accounting for the stock we have, no plan for how best to distribute that stock to make it most effective and no ability to prevent driving up the price for what we do have. I guess the only silver lining is that if Trump did control the distribution of the entire stock he would probably use it as a stick to punish people who don’t fawn over him as he’s done with what little was in the stockpile.

    Trumps problem is that he’s lost all credibility when he says stuff like this. He has so frequently pulled stories out of his *** when he needs to deflect criticism that for a lot of people he is not capable of being believed. And Trump isn’t reporting this, reporting comes with verified facts and sources. He is saying what is politically beneficial to him. He is making up a story that deflects blame away from him. He is blaming the dog for eating his homework.

    If someone has COPD and dies from an exacerbation of that disease brought on by Covid-19, did they die from Covid-19? What if Covid-19 lead to an extremely hypoxic state that caused a heart attack?

    This is the type of lunacy that we’ve come to. People doing the job of deciding what constitutes Covid-19 related deaths aren’t some deep state Trump hit squad, they’re people trying to understand and track what’s going on to the best of their ability. Is it possible Covid-19 gets blamed for some death it didn’t cause? Not as likely as a death occurring in an undiagnosed person who doesn’t get counted as a Covid-19 death. This does nothing to help the American people and is only designed to deflect blame from Trump.

    And to hear complaining from Trump that someone is saying something that may be construed as misleading is amazing. And the fact that he threw in the possibility that TV stations airing the ad may lose their license is classic mob talk. “It’s a nice restaurant you have here, would be a shame if something bad were to happen to it.”

    Thank you. Very sick of seeing people spread these idiotic conspiracy theories. Next step for these people is connecting the coronavirus to 5G and Bill Gates.

    That is not happening. Show me any evidence that someone who died from something other than Coronavirus was called Coronavirus.

    People do want the numbers to be accurate, you just have an ulterior motive. You want the numbers to be lower to protect Trump. The experts actually say if anything, our numbers are too low:

    So, if anything our numbers are too low.
