Recommended Posts

1. This is an ADMISSION the Pence task force failed
2. Why did he wait so long to do this?!
3. Doesn't matter how many task forces, it won't erase the failure of Trump from January through today re the virus

As Trump’s failures mount, one governor sounds an ominous warning

With coronavirus deaths in the U.S. rapidly approaching 15,000, we are now learning that the federal government’s national stockpile of medical supplies is almost depleted. Meanwhile, the failure to ramp up testing to the needed degree remains a “signature failure,” as the New York Times puts it.

For instance, Inslee noted, the state has unused testing capacity right now in large part because it lacks one thing: the swabs needed to take samples.

“It seems ridiculous that the United States can’t produce enough swabs to solve this problem,” Inslee told me. “I have 50 or 60 long-term care facilities that have infections in them that we literally have not been able to do the testing we want of remaining residents and staff.”


An ominous warning

Along these lines, Inslee warned of another looming problem.

As coronavirus cases recede in the coming months, if anything, more testing will be required. That’s because when people reassemble, it will be urgent to jump on cases in which people again show symptoms, and test them, to avoid a second wave.

“As we want to reopen our schools, as we want to reopen our industries, the amount of testing we need will actually increase,” Inslee said. “In the second wave, we have to have testing, a resource base, and a contact-tracing base that is so much more scaled up than right now. It’s an enormous challenge.”


“What we need now, what won World War II, was a quartermaster,” Inslee said. “That’s how you win wars. That’s what we need — a quartermaster.”

Recently, Trump was directly confronted with glaring evidence of this. His own administration released a report documenting urgent shortages faced by hospital administrators around the country, who offered constructive suggestions on how the federal government can help save American lives.

In response, Trump lashed out in a rage, and pretended those problems are simply nonexistent.

Needless to say, that’s not the quartermaster we need.

Rudy Giuliani has gone quiet.  

Can you blame him? When you've got a mouth that big better chance to catch a virus from ten feet away.

Sen. McConnell just said “We don’t have to do everything right now” to help Americans during the pandemic. I will be a senator who will do everything I can to fight for Kentuckians, even when it’s hard. When the going gets tough, Mitch goes home.

New Jersey Gov. Murphy: "The curve on positive tests does look like it's beginning, and I say beginning, to flatten ... a glimmer of hope, but it's way too early to declare any sort of victory here."

Fauci Urges Trump to Attack the Coronavirus as if It Were an Inspector General

WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—In what he described as a “potentially major breakthrough,” Dr. Anthony Fauci has convinced Donald Trump to attack covid-19 as if it were an inspector general.

Fauci, who has been frustrated in his efforts to get through to Trump, compared the global pandemic to an inspector general while in a closed-door meeting with the President on Wednesday.

“What do you hate more than anything, Mr. President?” Fauci asked.

“Jim Acosta,” Trump immediately replied.

“O.K., fine. But, besides Jim Acosta,” Fauci said, “it would be an inspector general, right?”

“You’re right, Tony,” Trump agreed. “I hate those losers.”

“Well, think of covid-19 as the worst inspector general in the world,” Fauci continued. “It’s overseeing everything you do and making you follow the law. It’s keeping you from spending taxpayer money on anything you want. You wouldn’t stand for that, would you?”

A clear trend in the polls: Whatever modest “rally ‘round the flag” bump President Trump got in the early days of social distancing has receded. His approval ratings are stagnant, and opinions of his handling of the virus are mixed to negative
Yesterday, six separate pollsters released new surveys. In all six, Trump’s approval rating was below 50 percent, ranging between 40 percent and 45 percent
