  1. We should realize that Trump is on the side of the health insurance industry. Insurance companies must pay for the covid 19 tests, therefore making the tests scarce is not an accident till our cobras run out.

      @William H Music 2020 your url says he is doing a great job. Is that the same great as in MAGA. Because he succeeded by making us another sh*thole country in America. Though against Biden, your prediction is probably true since democrats don’t care to win…

    Trump does not want testing because it will show realistic numbers and he will not be able to skew the numbers in his favor.

      @Pricilla Shivvers-Triplett Amen Miss…”IF” Mr Trump thought that he could prove his point and make the Dems look bad and clear his name..he would have been Tweeting it NON Stop.. He is STILL fighting in the Courts to prevent Congress from seeing the fully un redacted Special Council’s Report that was Released over 13 Months ago.. That is absolute Insanity..They are fully entitled to see the Report in it’s Entirety.. Why of earth would an Innocent Man be fighting to prevent Information that could exonerate him from being shown to a Co Equal Branch of Government??

    Nursing homes, meatpacking plants, and prisons all vectors as duly pointed out here. However, this is one of the reasons RepubliKKKlans have taken the ‘herd immunity by fire’ route. They feel safe that these individuals are expendable. The old cuz they’re done for anyway, factories cuz they’re full of temporary foreign workers and prisons cuz who cares. The mistake … the RepubliKKKlan red states are not immune and they WILL start dying.

      About the meat packing plants.
      No one has mentioned how long COVID-19 can stay viable on the surface of fresh refrigerated meat.

    • I’m guessing, however, that the Trump administration will try hard to hide the number of deaths.

    • Eww. I never thought about how long it stays on meat…but then again, I don’t eat it.

      1. Trump didn’t keep his promises. He didn’t even attempt to. He never built the wall. He could have shut down the government for the funding but he didn’t do it.

      2. He could have issued an executive order to end birthright citizenship for children of illegal immigrants, it would have been challenged, but he did not do it.

      3. He did not subsidize effected industries from the trade war with China. His trade war therefore wasn’t about helping workers, it was about something else.

      4. He passed, with Democrats, a bailout for all kinds of huge companies, Cruise lines, casinos. All kinds of crazy things. Instead that money could have gone to small businesses, which don’t have the capital to survive. Or individuals.

      5. He has called for the expansion of EB-3 high skilled green card issuance, which will put more white collar Americans out of work, and will suppress the pay of those who can stay employed. Just as tens of millions are UNEMPLOYED. It’s a squeeze. Big business gets high skill labor for cheap, and you’ll have to work extra hours for less just to keep your job.

    Good news from Detroit is always heartening…

    • Unusual, isn’t it? Not that it’s happening. It’s that someone outside of Michigan knows about it. They hear of the totally useless wastes of time things, like the protests at the capital, but usually not positive, and useful things like this.

  10. Good mayor = Good job, well done!

  11. As late as March 10, Trump said:
    “Just stay calm. It will go away.” The next day, the World Health Organization
    declared the coronavirus outbreak a global pandemic. By then, officials said,
    the warnings in the PDB and other intelligence reports had taken on the aspect
    of an insistent drumbeat. The first mention of the coronavirus in the PDB came
    at the beginning of January. But Trump has also been combative or dismissive
    toward U.S. intelligence agencies throughout his presidency.

    In reality, the virus was by then
    moving swiftly through communities across the United States, spreading
    virtually unchecked in New York City and other population centers until state
    governors began imposing sweeping lockdowns, requiring social distancing and
    all but closing huge sectors of the country’s economy.

    One official said that by mid- to
    late January the coronavirus was being mentioned more frequently, either as one
    of the report’s core articles or in what is known as an “executive update,” and
    that it was almost certainly called to Trump’s attention orally. But Trump
    spent much of February publicly playing down the threat while his
    administration failed to mobilize for a major outbreak by securing supplies of
    protective equipment, developing an effective diagnostic test and preparing
    plans to quarantine large portions of the population. Trump insisted publicly
    on Feb. 26 that the number of cases “within a couple of days is going to be
    down to close to zero,” and said the next day that “it’s like a miracle, it
    will disappear.”

    The advisories being relayed by
    U.S. spy agencies were part of a broader collection of worrisome signals that
    came during a period now regarded by many public health officials and other
    experts as a squandered opportunity to contain the outbreak. The frequency with
    which the coronavirus was mentioned in the PDB has not been previously
    reported, and U.S. officials said it reflected a level of attention comparable
    to periods when analysts have been tracking active terrorism threats, overseas
    conflicts or other rapidly developing security issues.

    But the alarms appear to have
    failed to register with trump, who routinely skips reading the PDB and has at
    times shown little patience for even the oral summary he takes two or three
    times per week, according to the officials, who spoke on the condition of
    anonymity to discuss classified material. President Obama would have read and
    digest every word in his PDB and the attachments and acted on the
    recommendation. The difference between genius and trump and his cultist
    supporters stupidity is that genius has its limitations” Two things are
    infinite: the universe and human stupidity; though I’m not quite sure yet about
    the universe. -Albert Einstein.

    For weeks, the PDB — as the
    report is known — traced the virus’s spread around the globe, made clear that
    China was suppressing information about the contagion’s transmissibility and
    lethal toll, and raised the prospect of dire political and economic

    The repeated warnings were
    conveyed in issues of the President’s Daily Brief, a sensitive report that is
    produced before dawn each day and designed to call the president’s attention to
    the most significant global developments and security threats.

    U.S. intelligence agencies issued
    warnings about the novel coronavirus in more than a dozen classified briefings
    prepared for President Trump in January and February, months during which he
    continued to play down the threat, according to current and former U.S.

    Trump blaming the Enemy for fcking
    him up good:))) USA started an economical War with China, China retaliated with
    Bio Warfare. Simple as that. Oh yeah, more and more often! I need to escape
    from the Toddler’s tantrums, pouts, lies, and adult versions of “Look what
    I did, Ma!” President Obama is – well, to begin with, he is an adult. 🇺🇸VOTEBLUE2020🗣…
    AS WE CAN!!🇺🇸💯🆗✌😂😂😂….Vote
    blue no matter who in November. Put all feelings aside and support the Democrat
    candidate and get to the polls in masse. Let’s get ourselves out of this
    nightmare and vote in a landslide. Russian and GOP election interference can’t
    overcome a landslide….100% for the sake of environmental protection, health
    care, national security, equal justice, minimized gun violence ……restore
    sanity. Folks do not let yourself be misled by irresponsible politicians;  so get rid of the FRAUD and those who protect
    him! DON’T get MAD. VOTE BLUE Tsunami 3rd November 2020, no matter whom…

    The problem with losing one’s
    credibility utterly and for all time is that you can never again say something
    nice, without causing a riot of snickering and contempt– which trump earned
    fully, and for whom no one else is responsible. We’re not about to believe that
    Donald Trump means anything he says about anything, much less trying to make
    nice about good citizenship or any of that. We know better! One of the things
    IMPEACHED imbecilic paedophile trump aka individual 1 stole from the American
    people is our deep seated desire to respect and admire our president. trump
    couldn’t be more hypocritical if he tried..
