    Come on....it is called a goal. The Mets and Yankees have goals every season why canít The President?

    A goal doesnít mean it will happen.

    What is funny is if Obama had set May 1 as a goal the backlash would have been slim and none.....he would have been awarded ďcourageĒ from the loving media.

    No matter what Trump does or says it will always be scrutinized to no end. And the May 1 is perfect example.

    The opposition is hilarious with their presumption statements that 99% of the time never happens.

    May 1 is not happening. Geez, Iím not the President and do not have info like what they get and I can figure it out right now that May 1 is not happening.

    Because people are at least somewhat adhering to strategies put in place.. We are not through this Mush. We are not close.
    Things look like they are slowing for sure and that's a really good sign but look at RC's post.

    The governors, house and senate said, no you don't.

    It was never yours to give.
    How much more of this can McConnell and the senate republicans tolerate and let slide?

    I have read behind closed doors they believe he's an inept, incompetent buffoon, but fear public humiliation should they challenge him. Sad sycophants.

    I actually read quite a few of them, told him he was wrong.

    I agree with Flimflamman. I want to be clear as I believe I have been. This isn't Rep vs Dem.

    It is this man. A man who would use the constitution as TP and tell us that's what it says to do.

    There are many, on the right who are outwardly disagree with him. I agree with you that many others are in fear.
    But some love him. I have no problem with loving him as long as you can see how poorly he has and is handling this.

    At this point, I refuse to argue or debate with anyone on anything. Seeing it in such a way, while also seeing the toll its taking on my fellow first responders, I just don't have the energy nor the desire. Life is too short.

    I'm listening to a radio interview with an Harvard med virologist who is saying we may need to intermittently, social distance until 2022, if we don't get a vaccine.

    People absolutely overreact to anything and everything he does or says. There's no way you can deny that at all. Doesn't matter what he does, good or bad, people will 100% find a way to **** on him for literally anything.
    I definitely don't love how our Pres has handled Corona, bou are reallllllly nitpicking here.
    Good, bad, right it wrong, it doesn't matter. He's had so many haters since day 1 who will never agree with a single thing he does.

    I agree clown. It's about one man. It's also about the myopic majority that allow the insanity to go unchecked. Few R's have publicly challenged him.

    Oh do any of you wake up with Covid symptoms after watching the news ... .? I woke up with a sore throat, Yet, it passed after having a cup of ginger tea. I am taking a day off and going to just friggin sleep today. Take a fresh ginger, slice it in long chunks, put on stove with a pot of water, and boil with a stick of cinnamon and enjoy. The ginger also has other benefits for the male function response, which is good for the wife. Enjoy the tea.

    28 I respect you and your opinion, but disagree. He and he alone is responsible for the distrust. From the outset he's created an illusion and tried to sell it. The press tries to strip away the BS and get to some semblance of reality. Are they all honest and credible? Do they have an agenda and axe to grind? Certainly. But he also has his cabal tossing "softballs." I took issue with Nick's use of "overreact". If we can not believe and trust the words from his mouth is it an over reaction when we challenged for the truth? When the freedom of the press is squelched we are doomed. When our ability to question and challenge authority without fear of reprisal is diminished we have suck to the depth of autocracy. All hail the King. You may recall just yesterday he claimed "the president has absolute power", the very definition of an autocrat. He was challenged, he tried to squelch that voice. He was WRONG. He walked it back.

    During this crisis things have been magnified. His shortcomings more evident. His handling from the outset was suspect and he does not want to be reminded. His fragile psychic balance always in jeopardy.

    I am a Republican for good or bad. But that does not define me as a human being. I am not offended if a person attacks republicans because as a Republican I should be critical of people I have invested money and my vote in much more then a Democrat for whom I did not. Like I should be more watchful of my child then someoneís elseís. If my candidate ****s up I feel betrayed and not defensive of them at all costs. Well that is how I see it. Some people here take the practice of what we do in sports, which is great for entertainment, and root for our team thru thick and thin. If you wear pinstripes I love you and if you wear the Red Sock uniform I hate you. They apply it to politics. Thatís dumb. But maybe people are isolated socially from people with different beliefs. I myself am married to a pro choice Democrat, and my daughter is a College student with a unique way of looking at the world that challenges my beliefs. Some people I guess are not exposed to other positions with people they love and learn to ponder ideas and consider them on their own merit. Itís so binary for some.

    As a Republican I was troubled by Oboma use of executive orders passing the Congress. Well do I look a blind eye to when Trump does it more ? As a Republican I objected to Obama'sactioms in Syria but am I supposed to ignore Trumps betrayal of the Kurds and how Syria was surrendered to Russian and Turkish interests ? Itís not knee jerk criticism, itís reasoned and principled criticism on my part. This Covid response is just a piece of sand on a beach.
