  1. The manchild's narcissism and pettiness knows no boundaries: https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-says-he-told-mike-pence-to-ignore-governors-in-hard-hit-areas-if-they-are-not-appreciative Shortly after the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus pandemic reached 1,500 on Friday, President Donald Trump took to the podium at a White House press briefing and complained that certain state’s governors are not “appreciative” enough of the federal government’s help—so much so that he said he’d told Vice President Mike Pence, the leader of the coronavirus task force, to skip calling governors of some hard-hit areas. Trump singled out the Democratic leaders of Washington and Michigan, noting that he had advised Pence not to call them as the healthcare crisis plagues their states and people fall sick and die. “He calls all the governors,” Trump said. “I tell him, I mean, I’m a different type of person. I say Mike, don’t call the governor of Washington, you’re wasting your time with him. Don’t call the woman in Michigan.” “If they don’t treat you right, I don’t call,” Trump said. Michigan’s health department is reporting 3,657 COVID-19 cases and 92 deaths. In Washington, there have been 3,700 cases, according to the state, and 175 deaths. “We have done a hell of a job,” Trump said. “The federal government has really stepped up.” Trump’s message to governors was that he wants “them to be appreciative.” The president’s comments Friday come as the coronavirus pandemic continues to shut down American life and states across the nation show a lack of uniformity on aggressive public health measures aimed at preventing the spread of the virus. Earlier this week, Trump began to push on an Easter timeline to re-open the country, despite warnings that such a timeline was unwise. Even some Republican governors have pushed back. Despite his earlier emphasis on Easter, he hedged when asked about the topic Friday. “I certainly want to get it open as soon as possible, I don’t want it to be long,” Trump said. “But we also want it to open safe, otherwise, what did we do?” At the start of the coronavirus task force briefing Trump said the nation’s governors “have been very gracious, for the most part.” “A couple that aren’t appreciative of the incredible job,” Trump said. “They have to do a better job themselves, that’s part of the problem.” He continued to praise his administration’s work, while scorning Washington Gov. Jay Inslee as “a failed presidential candidate.”
  2. Yes, it's Hillary. Of course I'm happy we have a deadly virus that has made my life more difficult and that has killed so many people. That just makes perfect sense. And of course, it's not the moron in chief's fault, all good things are thanks to him and all bad things are not his fault.
  3. Make your own! That's what the Czech Republic did. Not as good as surgical masks but better than nothing. The virus spreads through droplets, so any face covering will prevent most droplets from being released into the air when you cough of sneeze and also masks will help you not touch your face.
  4. Well, the US is now number 1 in COVID 19 cases in the world, so it guess that's a win?
  5. All delivery services are basically essential in a lockdown. USPS delivers not just mail but packages as well.
  6. Obviously many people in the US are doing, that's why the US is number one in cases. I'm not sheeple, I'm responsible. I'm not terrified, I'm not just not selfish. I can sacrifice my own comfort so that other people will live.
  7. You're visiting people. Enough said. There's no reasoning possible here if you don't realize why that's wrong.
  8. It feels pointless to try to convince him. It's obvious he's doing his best to spread the virus. No conscience.
  9. You really shouldn't be visiting people now. Hugging and kissing is worse but you should stay at home as much as possible.
  10. What if you're on your paid vacation and you're still getting paid while you're in the US doing touristy stuff? Wouldn't that be the same?
  11. Trump doesn't have an ideology, he's just a narcissist only concerned with his own approval ratings and his reelection. The right just follows him, even when he does things that contradict their ideology because he's their dear leader.
  12. This is not a left vs right issue, it's only being made so because the right just follows whatever Trump tells them.
