U.S. now has the second-highest number of known cases of coronavirus in the world


Because of Donald Trump's incompetence, this country has 80,000 recorded cases of COVID-19...

.The two incompetents behind it all
This can be attributed to early denials by the Oval Office lunatic, then delays in more ineptitude in testing. Here's the latest count...
"As of Thursday afternoon, China was reporting 81,782 cases and the United States had at least 80,837. There have been more than 510,000 cases reported worldwide."
As of today, Italy had 80,589 cases, in part due to a nationwide lockdown, which seems to have worked for this country. The best T-rump has come up with so far is encouraging distancing and not socializing. However, this idiot is reluctant to press for stay-at-home and is now talking of rescinding distancing and no socializing and returning to normal activities by Easter. All to improve an economy that he hopes will help his November election chances. But here's the way it is...
"Health officials are warning that numerous hospitals around the country may run out of beds within two weeks as cases continue rising.
"If more beds don't become available, 'then we don't have resources to save the lives that we need to save,' former Louisiana Secretary of Health Dr. Rebekah Gee said. 'That's why these stay-at-home orders are so important.'
"But "we have not seen the peak of the crisis yet," Gee said."
Here's the latest COVID-19 map...


Experts on distribution of much-needed hospital supplies...


 So, what happened to the Defense Production Act to speed up the availability of critical health equipment? Here is CNN's take after Trump was contradicted again, this time by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) administrator...
Around 8 a.m. Tuesday, Trump tweeted, "The Defense Production Act is in full force, but haven't had to use it because no one has said NO! Millions of masks coming as back up to States."
Minutes later, FEMA administrator Pete Gaynor told CNN the administration will start wielding the powers in the Defense Production Act for 60,000 tests kits and "use the allocation portion of the DPA" starting today.
"Just a little while ago my team came in and we're actually going to use the DPA for first time today," Gaynor said.

Kathy Griffin in hospital
One of Donald Trump's biggest non-fans, Kathy Griffin Rips Trump After Being Denied COVID-19 Test, with a comment re. the White House maniac's COVID-19 testing program...
She tweeted, “He’s lying. I was sent to the [COVID19] isolation wardroom in a major hospital ER from a separate urgent care facility after showing UNBEARABLY PAINFUL symptoms. The hospital couldn’t test me for [coronavirus] because of CDC (Pence task force) restrictions.”
"Griffin’s tweet came just hours after Trump took to Twitter to boast about the United States’ testing capacity." This is what Trump tweeted...
Trump’s tweet read, “Just reported that the United States has done far more ‘testing’ than any other nation, by far! In fact, over an eight-day span, the United States now does more testing than what South Korea (which has been a very successful tester) does over an eight-week span. Great job!”
In perhaps one of the worst, if not the worst crisis the United States has ever faced, the guy who is supposed to be running this country is bold-face lying about what he is supposedly doing to curb the situation. It is not only unconscionable, but appears to me to be bordering on treason, lying to the American public in a way that could be detrimental to their health in this dire emergency...READ MORE...

Is racism still a dirty word, or...just accepted today?

Racism is worse than that old weather saying. People have been talking about it for years, but no one has seriously done anything about it...
