Trump says coronavirus crisis will ‘get worse before it gets better,’ pleads with Americans to wear masks
Fox News ^ | 7/27/2020 | Andrew O’Reilly

Posted on 7/21/2020, 7:01:47 PM by VictoryGal

In his first official press briefing on the coronavirus pandemic since April, President Trump on Tuesday admitted that the public health crisis is likely to worsen as cases surge across the country and asked all Americans to wear masks in public.

While Trump hailed his administration’s response to the pandemic and the work toward developing a vaccine, he bluntly disclosed what many Americans already know: that the crisis is likely to spread more before it can be contained.

“It will get worse before it gets better,” Trump said of the pandemic that has infected close to 4 million Americans. “That’s something I don’t like saying but it is.”

Trump’s comments come after weeks where he either downplayed the virus’ continued spread or focused on other issues – from unrest over racial injustice in American cities to the removal of Confederate statues – despite cases of COVID-19 surging, particularly, in parts of the south and southwest.

Noting the concerns among many of his supporters that facial coverings impinge on their personal freedoms, Trump pleaded with Americans to wear masks out in public to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus.

“We’re asking everybody when you’re not able to socially distance to wear a mask,” Trump said.

Good morning, people! I wish I could social distance myself from the Freeperati – but the ISO suits make a big difference.

First up – Secret Disservice!

Eleven Secret Service Agents Test Positive For COVID-19 And Fears Of It Spreading Through The White House Are Mounting
Business Insider ^ | 5-10-2020 | Sophia Ankel

Posted on 5/10/2020, 7:37:38 AM by blam

Eleven members of the US Secret Service have tested positive for the coronavirus as of Thursday evening, according to Yahoo News.

Documents from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) seen by Yahoo News, revealed that the agency has 11 active coronavirus cases and an additional 60 employees who are reportedly self-quarantining. On top of this, another 23 members have already recovered from COVID-19, the diseases caused by the coronavirus.

It is not known whether the employees who tested positive for the coronavirus worked at the White House or if they had recent close contact with President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence.

Both Trump and Pence get tested for the disease regularly but have not tested positive so far. However, Trump said this week that he would switch from having weekly to daily tests following the new cases, according to The Hill.

Justin Whelan, a spokesperson for the Secret Service told Yahoo News that the agency is following guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

“To protect the privacy of our employee’s health information and for operational security, the Secret Service is not releasing how many of its employees have tested positive for COVID-19, nor how many of its employees were, or currently are, quarantined,” Whelan added.

The news comes as President Donald Trump revealed on Friday that Mike Pence’s press secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for the coronavirus. Miller, who is the wife of Stephen Miller — Trump’s senior adviser, and primary speechwriter — confirmed her diagnosis with NBC News, adding that she was asymptomatic.

Ivanka Trump’s personal assistant has also tested positive for the coronavirus, CNN’s Kaitlan Collins reported.

Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s Press Secretary, Tests Positive For Coronavirus
Deadline ^ | May 8, 2020 | Ted Johnson

Posted on 5/8/2020, 1:52:10 PM by MinorityRepublican

President Donald Trump said that Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary, tested positive for coronavirus.

Miller is married to Stephen Miller, one of Trump’s top advisers.

Earlier, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed on Friday that a member of Pence’s staff tested positive for coronavirus, but she did not identify who it was.

“There is a member of the vice president’s team who is positive for coroanvirus,” McEnany said. “We have put in place the guidelines that our experts have put forward to keep this building safe.”

Many more reporters were wearing face masks in the briefing room, a day after it was revealed that one of President Donald Trump’s personal valets tested positive for the virus. Trump and Pence took subsequent tests that came out negative, the White House said. On a call to Fox & Friends on Friday, Trump said that he was in the same room with the valet on Tuesday but does not recall any direct contact with the staffer, who is a member of the U.S. Navy.

Wow – so much stupid, so little time! The Freeperati’s little bubble world is crumbling all around them, and it’s quite the banquet of schadenfreude, so let’s start with a little appetizer – “How did they blow this one??”

Democrat-backed candidate wins Wisconsin Supreme Court race
The Hill ^ | 4/13/20 | Tal Axelrod

Posted on 4/13/2020, 7:32:16 PM by DoodleDawg

Dane County Circuit Judge Jill Karofsky unseated Justice Daniel Kelly in a hotly contested race last week that drew national attention from both major political parties, according to Monday evening reports.

The Wisconsin primary took place on April 7 despite health fears from the coronavirus pandemic, which led to a surge in absentee ballots that delayed the results for about a week.

While the race was technically nonpartisan, Karofsky drew support from national Democrats, while the GOP fell in line behind Kelly, who was appointed to the court in 2016 to fill a vacancy and was running for his first full term

****************

Kelly has apparently conceded. Drops the conservative majority down to 4 seats to 3.

Prayers up for all the families suffering from the impact of this virus. And we’re still praying that the spread starts fading with the warmer Spring weather and that an effective treatment and vaccine are developed before the next flu season starts. And we pray that our people are allowed to go back to work very soon and that our economy comes roaring back.

Meanwhile, we may be hurt and slowed down somewhat, but we have faith in the long-run that “what doesn’t kill us only makes us stronger.”

God willing, America will survive and we will survive and we know our efforts will always be needed. The fight for freedom is never ending. We must remain ever vigilant, especially during these dire times. The haters of God and His gift of Liberty never rest. They never let a crisis go to waste.

Sounds like you’re having a little crisis of your own there, Jimbo.

Jim Rob likes to boost the Freepathon in its waning hours by posting the subscriptions all at once as if they were new rubes  donations, and then (allegedly) just make shit up about late donations at the end to claim victory.

So, all he should have to do to rope in more suckers is post some fake news about donations to show that he’s ALMOST THERE, and prompt readers to part with some real money so he can get the grift going again. Right?

However – I think he knows that if he does a “money is pouring in” post, Freepers who suddenly find themselves in financial straits due to the COVID-19 hoax will just sit on their pocketbooks, secure in the belief that other Freepers are carrying their load.

Let’s see how many replies so far to the “hurt and slowed down” bleg.

Hmm.

Zero.

Interesting.

Woo Hoo indeed.

You may have to sell that RV, Jimbo.

Georgia high school seniors expelled after posting racist viral video to social media
WSAV TV ^ | April 18, 2020 | WSAV Staff

Posted on 4/19/2020, 7:27:45 AM by buckalfa

CARROLLTON, Ga. (WSAV) – Two Georgia high school seniors have been expelled and will reportedly not graduate after posting a racist video on social media.

Two seniors at Carrollton High School posted the video on TikTok on Thursday, where it quickly went viral and spread across other social media platforms. The video shows the two students using the n-word and saying derogatory things about African Americans.

The students, one boy and one girl, can be seen in a bathroom mimicking a cooking show using labeled cups of water.

“First, we have ‘black’,” the girl can be heard saying, as the boy pours a cup of water in the sink. “Next, we have ‘don’t have a dad’.”

The two then pour cups of water labeled “Eat watermelon and fried chicken”, “Rob people”, and “Go to jail” into the sink, and skip pouring a cup labeled “Make good choices.”

The students were quickly identified, and Carrollton City School District Superintendent Dr. Mark Albertus issued a statement Thursday night.

“Please know this video is being addressed immediately and any student involved in the production of this video will face serious consequences,” Albertus said.

Today on Tommy T’s Obsession with the Freeperati – shark has jumped the fox edition

Kinda dull over in Freeperville this last week, as the Freepers sullenly realize that The Darnold can’t make that absurd squeeze-box motion with hands and make this COVID-19 thing evaporate.

Hell, he even called a virus “genius”. Guess he was trying to Kim Jung Un it into submission.

Compared to him, I guess a microscopic parasite is a genius.

That, and doorknobs.

So – let’s repair to the always-soothing FOX “news” polling, shall we?

Fox News Poll: Far More Americans Approve Of Fauci’s Handling Of Coronavirus Than Trump’s
Daily Caller ^ | 04/10/20 | Justin Caruso

Posted on 4/10/2020, 2:19:06 PM by Enlightened1

Far more Americans approve of Dr. Anthony Fauci’s handling of coronavirus than President Donald Trump’s, according to a Fox News poll published Thursday.

Fifty-one percent of people polled approve of Trump’s response to coronavirus, while 77% percent of respondents approve of Fauci’s.

Trump’s approval rating hit 49%, up two points since February. Fauci’s approval has also declined 3% since last month.

Vice President Pence’s approval ratings are slightly higher than Trump’s in the Fox poll, with 52% of Americans approving of his response, down from 55% in March.

Trump’s approval rating numbers took a dip in March as coronavirus continued to spread. But recent polling for the president has been trending upwards. (RELATED: Latest Harris Poll Has Some Good News For President Trump On Coronavirus Response)

Fox News has jumped the shark.

fauci’s not handling anything. All he has to do is go behind a microphone and tell us what he told us before. TRUMP has the job of managing the vast resources of the federal government. Who has the harder job?

Obviously, fauci can’t be criticized for saying doctor things, but TRUMP IS criticized for everything he says and does, or doesn’t say or doesn’t do.

So fox news can go fox itself.

No surprise. Most American’s are braindead and have been told for weeks now that Fauci is an expert in his field.

Maybe because he IS??

Democrats will love him because he is passively against Trump, and apparently a good number of Republicans like him too, including many on here. Fauci is demonstrably terrible at his job, he’s been in it for 36 years and he’s gotten this and several other pandemics wrong. His popularity makes it hard for Trump to fire him. A “heroic” retirement in a few months would be best.

Fox Business Benches Trish Regan After Outcry Over Coronavirus Comments
nytimes ^ | 3/13/2020 | Michael M. Grynbaum

Posted on 3/14/2020, 7:26:03 PM by bitt

The host of “Trish Regan Primetime” told viewers this week that concerns about the coronavirus were “yet another attempt to impeach the president.”

The Fox Business anchor Trish Regan, whose on-air dismissal of the coronavirus as “another attempt to impeach the president” left her cable network facing a firestorm of criticism this week, has been removed from her prime-time slot for the foreseeable future, the network said on Friday.

Ms. Regan’s 8 p.m. program, “Trish Regan Primetime,” is “on hiatus until further notice,” Fox Business said in a statement. The network declined to say if Ms. Regan would continue to appear on its other programs, saying that its coverage plans for the coronavirus crisis remained in flux.

Fox Business attributed the move to “the demands of the evolving pandemic crisis coverage,” saying it was shifting resources toward daytime coverage of the pandemic and global markets. Both “Trish Regan Primetime” and its follow-up at 9, “Kennedy,” will be replaced by general-interest programs.

Can you take a minute from your “let’s panic over the Coronavirus” jihad and give me YOUR estimate of deaths in America from the Coronavirus that will occur for the full 2020 calendar year?

They’re even harder when “solve for Z” is dependent on “Y” being “People even dumber then Rand Paul”.

Funny how the NYT, et al. can lie, lie and lie some more and absolutely nothing happens to them.

Just yesterday it was read both Trish and Kennedy were to be put on hiatus (due to the crew needing to work on the CV coverage.) The two women will be returning at some time in the future.

Fox is trying to impeach Trump?

Um – he’s already BEEN impeached – just so ya know.

Should FOX foxes be put on the endangered species list?

Today on Tommy T’s obsession with the moronovirus

The Darnold got asked a rather uncomfortable question the other day:

A month ago?  He was bragging on the shutdown.
Bragging.

Last month, responding to a question from a reporter about why he has consistently called for “enormous cuts to the CDC, the NIH, and the WHO,” Trump responded: “I’m a businessperson. I don’t like having thousands of people around when you don’t need them.

Oh? Does that go for the armed forces as well?  After all, for the most part, there are hundreds of thousands of people around when we don’t need them. Until, of course, we do.

Maybe you should disband the Army, Navy, Air Force, and Marines as well? And the fire departments? Lazing around playing cards and waiting for something to catch fire?

And the stock market? He’s loving it!

The other part of his smarmy evasion?

“I didn’t do it.”

Yes you did, Traitor Tot.

It was news everywhere.

Surgery recovery’s taking longer then expected – a month more until I can bend over, pick up anything over five pounds, sit for more then 30 minutes, drive etc.

Hopefully I’ll be back embarrassing Freepers within four more weeks or so.

My night nurse, a wonderful Nigerian med student, was watching news with me while I was still in the hospital the day after my surgery. (He of course, is going to be at ground zero when the hospital starts filling up)

He asked me if I was worried about the COVID-19 epidemic. I replied not for myself so much as for others. He looked at The Darnold sputtering his lies and said “He’s insane”.

See you all in a few more weeks.
