Amid Building Economic Anxieties, State Leaders Pressured To Reopen - Ready Or Not | MSNBC 1


Reopening plans drafted by the Centers for Disease Control and Federal Emergency Management Agency find that even a phased reopening of the economy poses a significant risk of resurgence for coronavirus. And any reopening requires a level of testing and control of the virus that isn’t yet present. But President Trump is continuing to push a May 1 reopening date, and in a few states his supporters launched protests against stay-at-home orders and other social distancing measures. Aired on 04/15/2020.

      J Bell If you support trump, this says a lot about your character. Did he not say he loves his poorly educated base? That’s you 🤣🤣 keep embarrassing yourself in pledging allegiance to this narcissistic uneducated buffoon that’s just using you and his whole base for his own selfish needs and will throw you under the bus when you least expect it. Just ask Michael Cohen. He’s in prison after all these years of being a trump kissup. Was it worth it?

    • NJDevils IsMyTeam2112535 nah. I’ll stick with my education level. I make a decent living. And I’m pretty comfortable with my side in this where you’re the one calling a group of people you don’t know “uneducated”. Your other post shows even more about you. It’s not my problem your media owns you and your party is corrupt to the core. You have to take it out on someone so you come here. The only problem is, you’re short on facts. Your arguments are soft. Your media is proven corrupt. Your party is in shambles. This is why you are desperately lying about everything. But you should really come from a different angle. It’s getting embarrassing for you!

    • Rakesh Sukumar Trump acted while the loser democrats were focused on a bogus impeachment. You should be thanking him!

      @Alfred Basurto Little boy, you are delusional making up crap about what I do and don’t.
      I made a point, learn to read, instead of reading in what’s in your mind, and address what I said, instead of making up crap about me.
      You make a fool of yourself doing so.

      @Alfred Basurto Folks, this is how delusional these people are. Read his post, there is nothing in my post about whether I am working or not.
      They just make up crap now.
      People like Alfred have no ethics or intellectual honesty left.
      They’re meaningless.

    • @Terry Michaels well sorry for your bad luck.
      The Democrat part didn’t have much chances because of people like mitch McTraitor.
      You believe what you want.
      I know that the Democrat party never played a hand killing American citizens.
      And making up rules and laws to fit their needs like this republickin party of murdering terrorist criminals.

    • Terry Michaels | April 19, 2020 at 7:18 PM | Reply

      @CatPower Traitor, Mitch? I can prove you a seditious traitor easily with six simple questions.
      You can’t show anything to show Mitch a traitor but hearsay, gossip, rumor, innuendo, supposition, etc.

      SHOW your evidence for TREASON; it is a LAW, so before you call him traitor, SHOW your evidence or we’ll know you are a liar.
      I OFFER PROOF of yours.
      Nothing too personal.
      Will you take the challenge?

      And you are liar.
      Democrat party was the part of slavery, the KKK, segregation, were against civil rights, WHO ARE YOU KIDDING, you ignorant moron?

      You’re laughable.
      And you make meaningless claims without evidence, throwing around words like MURDERING and TERRORIST based on what?
      Do you realize laughably stupid your exaggerations and hyperbole make you after four years of your delusional crap?
      Toddle off or show your evidence and take my challenge.
      Until you get the backbone and evidence to prove your case or answer the question, you’re meaningless, kid.

  4. I’m glad that the people in my country are being kept relatively safe by our leader, unlike the Americans under theirs. I’ve lost my job, and worry about what I’m going to do – but I don’t want to see other people, including Americans, risk gruesome deaths because they’re being told to get back to work. Economies can be rebuilt, but lost lives are gone forever. So, despite the very real, unfortunate economic pain, I hope that Americans can stay home and be safer than if their president forces them to risk their lives back at work, or out in the streets. Stay safe, everyone…

  5. President 45…clueless…useless… reckless… shameless…and in November…jobless !

  6. It’s time he was removed, forcibly..

    • @Michael You are right.

      “Jealous ?” Either you don’t understand the meaning or the word of you’re just being juvenile.
      Irrelevant either way.

      You people lack common sense and a proper education.
      So I’ll give you a partial education now.

      Biden never “bribed” anybody, he simply held the crooked prosecutor to has committments to stop the corruption that was occurring within the Ukraine government.
      The EU and the multinational leaque of nations made it clear that if Ukraine was to receive further support as a growing country and an ally, Shokin had to go.

      So on March 26, 2016, the corrupt prosecutor Shokin was relieved of his services by a parliamentary vote.

      You go ahead and pretend whatever comforts you, kid, you have no credibility with me.
      But everyone reading this will see you have nothing, and I produced evidence for my side.

      You represent your side, perfectly, as I knew you would.

      and I am fine with that
      the point is, any not against him, are enemy… I can be against him and still not mind if he is re elected
      wow, you trumpanzies, are really shallow, really ignorant

    • It is. Thank God for Trump. Lots of people are in for a ride awakening in November (again). I see the common factor. And it’s fake news.

    • @Downright Dutch go volunteer at the coronavirus ward of a hospital near you and shake hands with all thr patients. We the Herd appreciate your self-sacrifice.

    Put pressure on testing I had the flu for 5 weeks went to the doctor 3 times begging on the last one for a test no test. How can we open the country when sick people can’t get a test?

    • Sorry to hear that, you should be able to be tested, per their own guidelines. This is why people are rallying, nothing makes sense! It is all a joke and it is like they want us to stay in our homes until we rot! very confusing. I called my local health dept and asked about testing so we can start to reopen, I am in an area with only a few covid cases in our county and we already hit the peak. I was told basically they have limited ability to test most people and no ability to check serologies even though we are told that is the only way to reopen. How does this not scare people into thinking about what is really going on? How does America not have the testing supplies it needs or PPE or anything we are told we need especially weeks out after reporting we need certain supplies?

    Many businesses closed down before trump even admitted there was a problem, the NBA was the first to suspend operations on their own with no government directive and was quickly followed by others.

  16. I clicked on this thinking it was about Covid19, it is not. It’s about the other virus that’s exclusively pandemic to America….STUPIDITY!

      Make the protesters sign a medical release that they refuse treatment for the game virus.

      natural selection, I feel confident I will survive now… let the world burn

    • wel1968
      Do even know why they’re protesting in Michigan? It’s because the governor is trying to tell people what they can’t buy in the stores that remain open. I’m a democrat but I don’t agree with her decision and wouldn’t stand for it if my governor did the same thing. While people aren’t working, they need something to do to feel productive so they don’t feel hopeless.

    • @dozzer009 yes I do
      they are liars
      they are just upitty trumpanzies, they do not matter

  20. Then the people should say: we are not going back to work to die unless we get tests for all. We refuse to be caualties of your war.
