    With a moral bankrupt for a president encouraging people to throw caution to the wind, things can only get much worse…

      @brian gardner actually i live in the city and the ppl i know of who died were the conservatives whites mostly older and minorities (blk & hispanic)

      @travelsofablackrose YOU are a liar, there are NO conservatives in NY city. The rich elitist liberals mostly white gave this to the black and others minorities

      Phillip: Except one person doesn’t throw caution to the wind and his name is Donald John Trump. When I see him out mingling with his supporters, along with his children, grandchildren and wife, and the rest of the Cabinet, with Kellyanne (George will wisely stay at home) and Miller, no distancing, no protective clothing, when I see him donate tests intended for the White House to where they’re really needed, then I will believe it is safe for the rest of us to return to normal lifestyles. At least Boris Johnson, if stupidly, had the guts to do that. After experiencing the virus, he changed his tune. This president proves himself again to be the wimp he always has been.

      Doug Schaufele that’s the problem, most Americans think their country is the greatest, it’s far from the truth and Americans seem to have no interest in how other countries live, it would shatter their illusion

  4. Doctors: Wait for 14 day downward trend of new cases before even THINKING of reopening

    Governors: Ok, so its OK to reopen on our highest single day of death right?

    America has crap leadership. We are doomed.

      Things are bad because idiots don’t wear masks. You want to blame Trump or someone else, blame yourself.

    • I’m curious to see just what our governor will do..our lockdown is til may 15th..but pur cases are still rising..not so many deaths but still..if he opens us up..i feel trouble..yes..we had protests..but not many showed..maybe 100..if that..all trump supporters if THAT tells you anything..but..we are a blue state..

    • @kittensplayingathome only trump supporters don’t wear masks..why? Bc the orange yeti stood on the stage for the world to see while he said..”I’m not wearing a mask”.. so of course..his cult members won’t either..hmmm

    • skate and create | May 5, 2020 at 3:08 PM | Reply

      kittensplayingathome broke protesting right wingers in the streets in droves with no masks in sight and they’re blaming everything on city governors lmao how about you walk the walk before talking the talk. They’re not blaming themselves when they get sick!!!

  5. Remove Trump from office.

    • Nov can’t get here soon enough✌️

    • Cindy you have got to get through May, June, July, August, September and October to get to November. There is no guarantee that Trump’s deluded base will desert him, they believe every word he says. He is ruthless in the way he goes after his political and perceived enemies. He lies as easily as he eats Big Macs. He is dangerous and now the Democrats have chosen a 76 year old man to oppose him, who is being engulfed in an historic sexual assault accusation, which could do him serious political harm. Joe Biden was Obama’s Vice President ergo he is a saint that is an extremely dangerous strategy. You could find Trump wins in November because he is without morals or conscience.

      Trump is an abject failure. If he had died be his job, we would only have a couple thousand dead and we would be far closer to being able to safely reopen. You Trumpturds are morons for following such an incredibly stupid man.

    • Mark Stuckey | May 5, 2020 at 9:19 PM | Reply

      @Pop Land True. U.S.A. is not doing the worst (yet). 13 territories are worse but 207 territories are better. So I don’t think it’s anything to be proud of. In fact U.S.A. should have been best prepared because it is allegedly the biggest economy in the world.
      UK is doing better than U.S.A. So now is Italy, France, Portugal, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Belarus, Denmark, Norway, Estonia, etc, etc.
      So it seems Europe learns quickly compared to U.S.A. who just flounders around reciting its false mantras to itself.
      Poor, poor, USAians, whose future seems only perilous.

      @Tony FC “Too bad we Americans don’t care”
      The fact that you are wasting keystrokes indicate that you do care. You blew your own argument.
      “when you’re on your knees begging for us to help”
      That does not happen except with third worlders, and the Marshall plan was a long long long time ago . That role has been taken over by the Chinese. If you actually understood geo-politics you would know this. So the message remains unchanged, USA generally, and people like you specifically, is still the laughing stock of the world, fatty.

Refuse to work yourself to death like a good little robot drone & they’ll take everything away from you. If humans didn’t require sleep we would all be working 22 or 23 hour shifts.

      @i get it the REAL numbers re unemployment have ALWAYS been misrepresented. there are currently (and have been before the virus) far in excess of 20% of the population unemplayed. the statistics that are published only represent a small percentage of those who even qualify to be counted as “officially” unemployed.

    Personally I won’t be listening to anything this Administration says to do. We have 2 kids a Girl and a Boy and me and my Wife have discussed the end of this lockdown and we will be maintaining a lockdown for a further 2 weeks to see how things play out. I personally don’t care if some people think it’s a bit harsh, I have COPD and can’t afford to be getting this COVID-19.
    Luckily me and my partner are able to work from home.
    This FCKN President is an IMBECILE and he only thinks of himself so why would anyone listen to him. I get my information from Doctors and Scientists and my last source of information comes from my eyes and the knowledge that we don’t have a vaccine and there is more or less ZERO medications to treat this.
