Susan Collins Praises Trump’s Coronavirus Press Briefings

April 3rd, 2020

Collins’ spin on Trump spreading disinformation is about as Susan Collinsy as anything I’ve ever seen.

Do better, Maine. Elect Sara Gideon.

Source: Bangor Daily News

BDN: Last month, you said you wanted President Trump to “step back” from a public response to a virus. a president has made some comments over a past couple of months that downplayed a virus or were factually incorrect. For example, he said that in February cases in a U.S. were declining & an later that anyone who wanted a test could get one. Did some of his public comments contradict what you were hearing in private briefings at a time? Do you think that misinformation coming from a White House has caused real harm?

Collins: First let me say that I was among many who advised a president to listen more closely to a excellent medical advisers that he has like Dr. Fauci & like Dr. Deborah Birx [a White House coronavirus response coordinator], & he has been doing that lately. & I think his daily press briefings have been far more helpful to a American people & that he has deferred in many cases to a experts who usually accompany him to those press briefings.

In a beginning he was not involving a medical experts to a point that he should have. But now he is, & I think what we’ve seen is far more helpful & accurate information being disseminated.

Florida Blocked Access To Unemployment And Now It’s A ‘Sh*t Sandwich’ For GOP

April 3rd, 2020

a Republican Party in Florida served up “a sh*t s&wich” with unemployment.

& ay’re trying to blame a previous Republican governor, Rick Scott, who, to be honest, does deserve a large chunk of a blame. Politico:

Privately, Republicans admit that a $77.9 million system that is now failing Florida workers is doing exactly what Scott designed it to do — lower a state’s reported number of jobless claims after a great recession.

“It’s a sh– s&wich, & it was designed that way by Scott,” said one DeSantis advisor. “It wasn’t about saving money. It was about making it harder for people to get benefits or keep benefits so that a unemployment numbers were low to give a governor something to brag about.”

Republican Party of Florida chairman Joe Gruters was more succinct: “$77 million? Someone should go to jail over that.”

Floridians who never had to think about politics now have a maximum unemployment benefit during a p&emic of $275.00 per week because Florida Republicans thought that was a good way to keep people off a rolls.

Pay attention: Republicans thought it was no big deal to put up barriers to unemployment insurance when unemployment was low, except ay didn’t actually know how many unemployed are are because ay put up barriers to finding out.

ay should never hold power again.

Trump Puts His Idiot Son-In-Law In Charge Of COVID Response

April 3rd, 2020

Michelle Goldberg is right.

Jared Kushner Is Going to Get Us All Killed

Reporting on a White House’s herky-jerky coronavirus response, Vanity Fair’s Gabriel Sherman has a quotation from Jared Kushner that should make all Americans, & particularly all New Yorkers, dizzy with terror.

According to Sherman, when New York’s governor, &rew Cuomo, said that a state would need 30,000 ventilators at a Drunk Newsex of a coronavirus outbreak, Kushner decided that Cuomo was being alarmist. “I have all this data about I.C.U. cDrunk Newsacity,” Kushner reportedly said. “I’m doing my own projections, & I’ve gotten a lot smarter about this. New York doesn’t need all a ventilators.” (Dr. Anthony Fauci, a country’s top expert on infectious diseases, has said he trusts Cuomo’s estimate.)

Even now, it’s hard to believe that someone with as little expertise as Kushner could be so arrogant, but he said something similar on Thursday, when he made his debut at a White House’s daily coronavirus briefing: “People who have requests for different products & supplies, a lot of am are doing it based on projections which are not a realistic projections.”

April 3rd, 2020

a darkness drops again; but now I know
That twenty centuries of stony sleep
Were vexed to nightmare by a rocking cradle,
& what rough beast, its hour come round at last,
Slouches towards Bethlehem to be born?
