Administration in Talks About Winding Down the Coronavirus Task Force, Trump: “We Can’t Keep Our Country Closed for Five Years”…Let’s Roll!

07-curve-li-600

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. – President Ronald Reagan

FoxNews.com reports that

The Trump administration is in talks over potentially winding down the coronavirus task force, even as the number of COVID-19 cases continues to grow in the U.S. and as sectors of the economy begin to reopen.

President Trump defended the talks Tuesday while speaking to the media in Phoenix, Ariz., where he was touring a mask production facility, saying his advisers were continuing to examine the virus “very closely,” and the doctors on the task force would continue to make their voices heard. He also said, “We can’t keep our country closed for the next five years… We’ve learned a lot about the coronavirus.”

The president also denied his message was, “mission accomplished.”

Vice President Pence, who has led the task force, said Tuesday that White House officials were “having conversations” about finishing up the group’s business and, instead, having “agencies take over the work” — specifically mentioning the Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA]. Pence said, though, that the earliest the agencies could take over the group’s responsibilities would be Memorial Day or early June, if the task force itself were to be discontinued.

A White House official told Fox News the White House has been shifting focus toward re-opening the country, as outlined in Phase 1 of the administration’s “Opening Up America Again” guidelines. The official said it would be an ongoing shift over the next several weeks.

The official told Fox News that doctors will continue to play an “important advisory role” in the process, as the administration has aimed to “make sure medical guidelines are kept up to date” and Americans are able to safely return to work. The official stressed that doctors were not being removed from the equation and called any reports reflecting that “false.”

The official told Fox News that members of the task force will continue to provide input, but the group will not be meeting as regularly as they had been at the outset of the pandemic. The official added that the White House’s focus was shifting towards vaccines, therapeutics, testing and re-opening the economy.

The task force, according to the official, was always meant to be a temporary arrangement. The official stressed that experts will continue to provide input, even while not meeting each day.

The task force has included Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Dr. Deborah Birx, who served as the U.S. Global AIDS coordinator under both the Trump and Obama administrations; U.S. Surgeon General Jerome Adams; Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar; Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services Administrator Seema Verma; Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Director Robert Redfield and more.

The task force had delivered near-daily briefings from the White House for nearly two months, sometimes lasting for more than an hour, providing updates on the impact of the coronavirus and the Trump administration’s response.

But, those briefings also became a source of controversy.

Trump led many of them, taking criticism for spending chunks of time touting his administration’s accomplishments and sparring with some of the media. Perhaps the most controversial moment came last month when Trump seemingly suggested that a product as simple as household disinfectant potentially could be used for treatment in humans for coronavirus.

The president later said he was just being “sarcastic.” But, Lysol and even the Environmental Protection Agency [EPA] put out statements reminding people that disinfectants should not be ingested or injected into the human body. Shortly afterward, the White House stopped hosting the briefings on a regular basis.

I personally believe that focusing the experts in the Coronavirus Task Force on a new mission of reopening America would be a great idea.

I firmly believe that, while no death from the virus has been unimportant, the estimates of death toll of the coronavirus were greatly overestimated.

It is time to tailor coronavirus safety restrictions to what is happening in different areas of the country, not just treat every region of America as if it was the sardine can that is New York City, where the homeless sleep in the subway and the mayor is a Communist.

Speaking for the state where I live, Mississippi, tomorrow, the governor is going to allow restaurants to reopen at 50% occupancy with tables 6 feet apart and is going to start allowing “drive-in church services”.

That’s an improvement, but, I still need a haircut and I can’t fellowship with my fellow believers while we are isolated in different cars.

“Virtual hugs” and waving hands emojis on Facebook just doesn’t cut it.

America, using common sense, HAS to return to some sense of normalcy before we lose our nation to the Far Left Democrats and their puppet governors, who want to turn us all into a Marist Proletariat so that they can grow rich and powerful as the Soviet Politboro was.

You think I am kidding?

Have you been watching the overstepping governors in the blue states as they trample our Constitution?

If you have been on any Facebook Political Pages, you will find Liberals cheering them on, oblivious of the trampling of the rights of American citizens.

Instead, that have been calling those Americans who entered the Michigan Capitol Building carrying legal firearms, thugs because they dared stand up against Gov. Whitmer.

President Trump is right.

“We can’t keep our country closed for the next five years.”

It is time to starting opening back up or else we will be playing right into the hands of those who would “radically change” our Constitutional Republic into a Marxist Nation.

President Ronald Reagan said,

Man is not free unless government is limited.

What we have witnessed through the overstepping of some of our states’ governors during the last two months has proven the Gipper to have been a prophet.

Per Taskforce, Coronavirus Vulnerable to Heat and Humidity, Trump Then Shuts Down Attacking WaPo Reporter

https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1253456045667692550

FoxNews.com reports that

President Trump had a contentious exchange with Washington Post journalist Philip Rucker at Thursday’s coronavirus task force briefing.

Following the task force’s presentation about the virus’s vulnerability to sunlight and humidity, Rucker asked the president if it’s “dangerous” for him to suggest that it’s safe for people to go outside, pointing to the death counts in places with warmer climates like Florida and Singapore.

“Here we go, here we go — the new headline is ‘Trump asks people to go outside — that’s dangerous,'” Trump mocked Rucker. “You ready? I hope people enjoy the sun and if it has an impact, that’s great.”

Trump highlighted the prior “rumor” that heat is effective in killing the virus and questioned if “light and heat” can be applied to a cure, stressing that he’s “not a doctor” but that it may or may not work. Dr. Deborah Birx said having a fever helps the body respond to the virus, though expressed uncertainty about Trump’s suggestion.

However, none of that sat well with the Post’s White House bureau chief, who is also an MSNBC analyst.

“But respectfully, sir, you’re the president and people tuning in to these briefings — they want to get information and guidance and want to know what to do. They’re not looking for a rumor,” Rucker said.

“Hey Phil, I’m the president and you’re fake news,” Trump shot back. “And you know what I’ll say to you? I’ll say it very nicely. I know you well, I know you well because I know the guy, I’ve seen what he writes. He’s a total faker. So, are you ready?… It’s just a suggestion from a brilliant lab by a very, very smart man. He’s talking about sun, he’s talking about heat. And you see the numbers. So that’s it. That’s all I have. I’m just here to present talent. I’m here to present ideas because we want ideas to get rid of this thing.”

After his praise for Bill Bryan, the head of the science and technology directorate at the Department of Homeland, Trump added, “And if heat is good and if sunlight is good, that’s a great thing as far as I’m concerned.”

Here’s what brought about the above exchange per FoxNews.com,

Bill Bryan, the head of the science and technology directorate at the Department of Homeland, said that solar light along with high temperatures and humidity have a “powerful effect” of creating environments less favorable for the virus to survive.

A chart released by during the White House coronavirus task force by the DHS showed that the novel coronavirus dies within two minutes in hot summer humidity while on surfaces and a minute and a half while in the air.

“Coronavirus dies at a much more rapid pace when exposed to sunlight and humidity,” Bryan said during the White House briefing. “The virus dies the quickest in direct sunlight. Isopropyl alcohol will kill the virus in 30 seconds.”

Bryan, however, warned that the results from a DHS study were still in the nascent stages and cautioned Americans to continue practicing social distancing and other hygiene measures outlined by the federal government.

The question is, why did President Trump being glad to see a possible light at the end of the Coronavirus Tunnel get the reports from The Washington Post so agitated?

It’s simple.

Those reports, like their masters in the Democratic Party Hierarchy, believe that the longer that the Chinese Coronavirus lingers on, the longer that Democratic Governors will attempt to limit the Constitutional Freedom of American Citizens.

The longer that they can make this pandemic last, the worse the American Economy is going to get and the better their chances of spoiling President Trump’s bid for reelection…even running a loser like Joe Biden.

If these preliminary studies are correct and the change of seasons from spring to summer will go a long way in eradicating the coronavirus, Then that leaves the President and his Administration time to begin the process of rebuilding America’s Economy.

From here in my man-cave in the Mid-Southern part of America’s Heartland, it appears to me like the Far Left Democrats would rather America’s Economy tanks and the millions of Americans currently unemployed remain that way, so that Sleepy Joe and the real power behind him can convince Americans just how benevolent that they and the “Democratic Socialism” which they will be peddling will be when they are sitting in the Oval Office come January of 2021.

As one of my fellow writers at http://www.Spartareport.com said in a discussion yesterday, what the Democrats don’t get is that the real power of the movement that elected Trump in 2016 was not Candidate Trump himself but the average Americans who supported him.

The “smartest people in the Room” are so cloistered up there in Washington, D.C. from us “commoners”, that the value system and political ideology which has consumed them has as much in average Americans as Rosie O’Donnell does with Jenny Craig.

In order for the Democrats to have a change in the 2020 Presidential Election, the Chinese Coronavirus Pandemic must drag on for as long as possible.

Because, the longer it drags on, the more that the America that we know and love will resemble the Marxist Nation that the Far Left Democrats want to change us into.

CDC Says That Some Essential Workers Exposed to COVID-19 But Not Showing Symptoms Can Go Back to Work…That’s a Good Beginning…

4494cbf4-065a-4c9f-97cb-f8da0024f1af-Essential_Workers

https://twitter.com/dbongino/status/1248046167419731968

FoxNews.com reports that

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced new coronavirus guidance Wednesday saying some essential workers who have been exposed to COVID-19 but are not showing symptoms can return to work.

Each worker would need to take his or her temperature twice a day for signs of a fever and wear a face mask at work and out in public to prevent the spread of the virus, Dr. Robert Redfield, the director of the CDC, said at Wednesday’s White House coronavirus briefing.

Redfield said the guidance was an effort to “really begin to get these critical workers back into the workforce so that we won’t have worker shortage in these critical industries,” including first responders, health-care workers, food supply workers and more.

The CDC also was encouraging employers to take their employees’ temperatures at the beginning of the workday and send home any workers who showed symptoms. In addition, officials said buildings should increase their air exchange and increase the frequency of how they clean common rooms and areas.

Employees still have been discouraged from congregating in break rooms, lunchrooms or any large gathering spaces, Redfield said.

The new considerations by the CDC signaled the slightest hope for a return to normalcy in the U.S. even as the death toll reached 13,929 and the country continues to grapple with 404,352 cases of the virus.

Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, told Fox News’ “America’s Newsroom” on Wednesday that if the social distancing strategies implemented through the end of April are successful in slowing the curve and spread of coronavirus, the government could start to peel back some of the restrictions in the weeks to come.

“If, in fact, we are successful, it makes sense to at least plan what a re-entry into normality would look like,” Fauci told Fox News. “That doesn’t mean we’re going to do it right now, but it means we need to be prepared to ease into that.”

Even though “we’re starting to see some glimmers of hope,” the United States needs to “keep pushing on the mitigation strategies,” Fauci said, reiterating that tactics such as social distancing need to continue because “there is no doubt that that’s having a positive impact on the dynamics of the outbreak.”

Fauci, a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said that although the death toll is staggering in the U.S. — and third to only Italy and Spain with the highest number of deceased — “the deaths generally lag by a couple of weeks behind what’s fueling the outbreak, namely the number of new cases and the number of hospitalizations.”

Still, health officials, including Fauci, remain skeptical of reopening the country’s economy too soon, as recent studies suggest that some people who are infected with the virus do not show any symptoms, while others who have developed symptoms of COVID-19 and recovered may remain contagious.

Fauci told reporters during a press briefing Sunday that between 25 and 50 percent of infected Americans are not exhibiting symptoms of the virus.

“That is an estimate. I don’t have any scientific data yet to say that,” he added.

Good news for “essential workers”.

However, for those who suffer from out-of-control Trump Derangement Syndrome, the Coronavirus Outbreak and the resulting economic blow America has taken, (and, I can’t believe I am saying this about fellow Americans) has been just the “break” that they have been looking for.

I absolutely hate to speak of this horrible pandemic, which looks as if it may not take as many American lives as was predicted, thank God, in political terms.

However, if the external enemies of America, like the Chinese Government, and her internal enemies, who lust for the political power of the White House in order to turn us into a Marxist nation had their way, I absolutely believe that they would cheer another Great Depression, such as my parents struggled through with their parents., in order to regain the White House.

Look at what we have witnessed so far:

Nancy Pelosi and Adam Schiff wanting to form committees to attempt to set up another impeachment of President Trump for anything they thing he may have done wrong in the handling of this pandemic.

The Governor of New York wanting more ventilators while thousands were found that had already been delivered.

The Main Stream Media attacking the President and Vice-President during the Coronavirus Taskforce Daily Briefings and any other opportunity they have.

China lying about the Coronavirus and the head of the WHO swearing to it.

The cost of human life during this pandemic has been horrible enough without it being made into a political weapon.

It is time to start slowly and judiciously reclaiming our nation and to restart what was a booming economy.

We are Americans.

GOD’S GOT THIS.

Trump Predicts “a Very Painful 2 Weeks” as the Coronavirus is About to Surge…Where Were the NY Dem Leaders in January?

1585693694_Trump-Tweet-LIVE-Press-Briefing-with-Coronavirus-Task-Force-1038x584

FoxNews.com reports that

The White House coronavirus task force on Tuesday pleaded with Americans to abide by the administration’s extended social distancing guidelines to slow the spread of coronavirus as a somber President Trump told Americans to brace for “a very painful two weeks” and warned of thousands of more virus-related deaths.

“The surge is coming, and it’s coming pretty strong,” the president said in the White House briefing room in a lengthy press conference that lasted more than two hours.

The extension of the social distancing guidelines comes after Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, and other public health officials on the White House coronavirus task force ominously warned that even if the U.S. were to continue to do what it was doing — keeping the economy closed and most Americans in their homes — the coronavirus could still leave 100,000 to 240,000 people in the United States dead and millions infected.

Without any measures in place to mitigate the contagion’s spread, those projections jump to between 1.5 and 2.2 million deaths from COVID-19.

“It is absolutely critical for the American people to follow the guidelines,” Trump said during the briefing. “It’s a matter of life and death.”

The new “30 Days to Slow the Spread” guidelines — unveiled at the press conference — are an extension of the strategy the White House implemented just over two weeks ago and include guidance on social distancing, working from home, washing hands frequently, and avoiding any unnecessary travel.

While Trump sought to reassure Americans that the country would ultimately get through the pandemic, he declined to sugarcoat the severity of the pandemic and said that the battle against the contagion will be worse in the upcoming weeks.

“This is going to be a rough two week period,” Trump said. “As a nation we’re going to have a really rough two weeks. Our strength will be tested and our endurance will be tried.”

At another point, Trump said: “This could be a hell of a bad two weeks. This is going to be a very bad two or maybe even three weeks. This is going to be three weeks like we’ve never seen before.”

The change in tone marks an abrupt shift by Trump, who spent much of last week targeting April 12 as the day he wanted to see the country open and “raring to go” by Easter Sunday.

Fauci and Dr. Deborah Birx the White House coronavirus response coordinator, said that the modeling of 100,000 to 240,000 deaths is still very possible, but Fauci said the federal government is working “very hard to bring that number down.” Birx added that the number of deaths could be blunted through proper medical care and social distancing.

The models predictions have the surge in deaths going into the summer.

“There’s no magic bullet, there’s no magic vaccine or therapy. It’s just behaviors,” Birx said, adding that it would be those behaviors that could change “the course of the viral pandemic.”

“As sobering a number as that it is, we should be prepared for that,” Fauci said. “No one is denying that we are going through a very difficult time right now.”

…For most people, the coronavirus causes mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. But for others, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause severe symptoms like pneumonia.

As I was watching Fox and Friends yesterday morning, they showed some graphs on how badly the Coronavirus has spread through New York and New Jersey.

That area has been hit so hard that 50% of all of the Coronavirus cases have occurred there.

The why seems to be obvious: people are packed like sardines in the area, living, shopping, and riding mass transit elbow to elbow.

However, there are some other reasons why the Coronavirus gained a foothold in that area.

One reason has to do with the idiotic Communist Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio.

DailyCaller.com reported on March 25th that

“Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus,” the Democrat told his Twitter followers on March 3, no more than two weeks before likening the outbreak to a type of World War that required nationalizing industries.

De Blasio offered some suggestions for what New Yorkers should do instead of social distancing.

“I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see “The Traitor,” he said, referring to a 2019 crime drama about the life and times of a Mafia mob boss. 

However, Commie Bill wasn’t the only lousy public servant on the Democratic side during this crisis.

Everyone knows that President Trump put in place a travel ban to and from China at the end of January.

What were New York Democrat Reps. Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez and Jerry Nadler and Sen. Chuck Schumer doing at that time? Were they sounding the alarm that a Dangerous Chinese Coronavirus was coming?

Oh, heck no.

They were all running their mouths about the upcoming Impeachment Vote in their insane quest to somehow overturn the Presidential Election of November 8, 2016.

Only Governor Cuomo was telling New Yorkers of the potential peril.

And now, all he does is whine that he needs more ventilators and masks, even though thousands of ventilators have already been sent and stored out of sight somewhere to be recently found.

Even now, the Democrats’ Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, is trying to keep the President and the Coronavirus Taskforce Briefings from being seen on television by American citizens.

Americans are about to face two weeks of Hell.

I thank God that we have a President who tells us what’s coming instead of trying to lie about it, hide it from us, and potentially sacrifice our lives for the sake of political expediency like the Democrats and their minions in the MSM continue to do.

Stay safe.

God Bless America.

MSM Makes Fun of Mike Lindell Calling Americans to Prayer at Taskforce Press Conference

FoxNews.com reports that

Several members of the media were quick to dismiss the presence of “My Pillow” founder Mike Lindell at the White House coronavirus press briefing despite his company’s ongoing contribution to combating the outbreak.

Lindell, who was among several business leaders who spoke at Monday’s presser, announced that his company is aiming to increase its production of cotton face masks from 10,000 to 50,000 per day.

He also said a prayer and encouraged the country to dedicate time to their families and religion.

“God gave us grace on November 8, 2016, to change the course we were on,” the pro-Trump businessman said. “God had been taken out of our schools and lives, a nation had turned its back on God. I encourage you to use this time at home to get back in the word. Read our Bible and spend time with our families.”

However, critics from various news outlets mocked Lindell’s appearance at the Rose Garden.

“Trump just called the ‘My Pillow’ guy up to the podium in the Rose Garden. You cannot make this stuff up,” MSNBC anchor Ali Velshi reacted.

“Morning Joe” co-host Mika Brzezinski tweeted, “Is that the my pillow guy?? Do I need to turn the volume up. I was waiting for the doctors.”

“The ‘My Pillow Guy’ was at the Corona Virus briefing today? Boy oh boy, do we need SNL this Saturday. If this had been a SNL skit we would have thought it was fake, right? You can’t make this s— up. Who is going to play the ‘my pillow guy’?” Miami Herold reporter Julie K. Brown asked.

“Well, imagine my relief that the My Pillow guy is on the job,” NeverTrump commentator Tom Nichols quipped.

“Trump now has the guy from My Pillow doing a campaign commercial for Trump’s 2020 campaign in the middle of a press conference about a deadly virus. How can any real news network air this BS?! #StopAiringTrump” Daily Beast and CNN opinion columnist Dean Obeidallah wrote.

“Look, it’s hard to fill up 90 minutes worth of material every single day, so you need to get some sponsored material/infomercials,” New York Magazine writer Jonathan Chait joked.

CNN abruptly cut away from the presser the moment Lindell began speaking and waited to cut back in when the president returned to the podium.

Others rushed to defend Lindell from the social media pile-on and praise his efforts amid the national crisis.

“I applaud Mike Lindell for helping our country during this crisis by using his factories to make 50,000 N95 masks A DAY (!!) for our health care workers in need. This is not political – and you should do some serious soul searching if this act of patriotism is triggering to you,” Meghan McCain said.

“Michael Lindell is a private citizen entitled to his own opinion. He is also being downright heroic for working to manufacture more masks,” RealClearNews correspondent Philip Wegmann tweeted.

“If you’re angry at the guy shifting over his factory to produce 50,000 facemasks a day for medical professionals, you’re doing being human wrong,” Ben Shapiro wrote.

Trump Extends Social-Distancing Guidelines to April 30, Shows Why Americans Trust Him More Than the MSM

5e8122bd220000910cb3ae93

FoxNews.com reports that

Speaking at a contentious White House coronavirus news briefing on Sunday that involved testy standoffs with multiple reporters, President Trump declared that “the peak in death rate” in the coronavirus pandemic “is likely to hit in two weeks,” and said the federal government will be extending its social-distancing guidelines through April 30.

“The modeling estimates that the peak in death rate is likely to hit in two weeks. I will say it again. The peak, the highest point of death rates, remember this, is likely to hit in two weeks… Therefore, we will be extending our guidelines to April 30, to slow the spread,” the president said in the White House Rose Garden.

Saying his earlier hope that the country could reopen by Easter was “just an aspiration,” Trump added: “We can expect that by June 1, we will be well on our way to recovery” and that “a lot of great things will be happening.”

When asked about worst-case scenarios if the country were to remain closed indefinitely, the president responded, “You’re gonna have large numbers of suicides — tremendous [numbers of] suicides… You will see drugs being used like nobody has ever used them before, and people are going to be dying all over the place.”

On a positive note, Trump went on to note that “two of the country’s largest health insurers — Humana and Cigna — have announced that they will waive copays, coinsurance, and deductibles for coronavirus treatments.”

In response to a question at the briefing, Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, reiterated his estimate from earlier in the day that it remained possible that 100,000 to 200,000 people could die in the United States. “What we’re trying to do is not let that happen,” he said, calling the extension of social-distancing guidelines “a wise and prudent decision.” Over 2,300 people with the virus already have died in the U.S.

“Models are good, but models often generate the kind of anxious question you asked,” Fauci said, when a reporter asked how bad the situation could become. “A model is as good as the assumptions you put into the model, and very often, many of these assumptions are based on a complexity of issues that aren’t necessarily the same… from one country to another.”

Fauci said the April 30 extension came after he, Dr. Deborah Birx and other members of the task force had made the recommendation.

Trump said he’d seen early estimates that 2.2 million people could have died if the government had done nothing in a worst-case scenario, so “if we can hold that down to 100,000” or less, it would be a “good job.” Had the country simply ridden the virus “like a cowboy” and driven “that sucker right through,” the president insisted, disaster would have unfolded.

Separately, Trump openly questioned why the demand for surgical masks has skyrocketed in New York City and elsewhere, urging assembled reporters that they “oughtta look into it” because “something’s going on.”

The head-turning moment came just hours after Trump touted the sky-high ratings for the events on social media, and shortly after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio urged his constituents not to “look back” on his prior statements downplaying the coronavirus.

“How do you go from 10 to 20 to 30,000, to 300,000 [masks] — even though this is different,” Trump asked. “Something is going on, and you ought to look into it as reporters. Where are the masks going? Are they going out the back door? How do you go from 10,000 to 300,000? And, we have that in a lot of different places. So, somebody should probably look into that. I just don’t see from a practical standpoint how that’s possible to go from that to that, and we have that happening in numerous places.”

Pressed on the matter later at the briefing, Trump called on New Yorkers to “check” Gov. Andrew Cuomo and de Blasio, both Democrats, about the changing mask numbers. “People should check them, because there’s something going on.” He asserted that it could be “something worse than hoarding.”

Cuomo said earlier this month that some people were stealing medical supplies. “Not just people taking a couple or three, I mean just actual thefts of those products,” Cuomo said. “I’ve asked the state police to do an investigation, look at places that are selling masks, medical equipment, protective wear, feeding the anxiety.”

Furious nurses staged protests outside of Jacobi Hospital’s emergency room in the Bronx over the weekend, claiming there was a dangerous shortage of masks and gloves there. Sean Petty, a pediatric nurse at the hospital, told the New York Post: ‘We need billions of N95 masks. This policy that was put out by the [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] is killing nurses. We already lost our first nurse in New York City. We’re gonna lose more.”

Trump remarked that “many of the states are stocked up” on various critical supplies including ventilators — although, he added, “some don’t admit it.” Later, Trump suggested that “there’s a question as to hoarding of ventilators” in which some hospitals may be keeping the devices in case of a major problem in the future.

Also at the briefing, Trump unloaded after PBS News’ Yamiche Alcindor — who previously has asked numerous questions about whether an unnamed administration official really used the term “Kung Flu” — began with another critical query about Trump’s comments to Fox News on New York’s ventilators.

“That’s why you used to work for the Times and now you work for somebody else,” Trump jabbed. “Why don’t you people act a little more positively — it’s always get-you, get-you. Be nice. Don’t be threatening. Be nice.”

Minutes later, Trump tusseled with a CNN reporter who alleged the president had definitely said he wouldn’t call governors who weren’t appreciative of his coronavirus efforts. Trump shot back that Washington state’s governor, Democrat Jay Inslee, was a “nasty” person, and reiterated that Vice President Mike Pence would remain in open communications even with hostile governors.

“Your statement is a lie,” Trump said flatly. Trump also slammed the reporter for omitting a portion of Trump’s quote in which Trump said governors and local officials needed to appreciate the broader federal disaster relief effort.

“We lift up their ratings, because their ratings are very low,” Trump said, explaining why CNN had sent a reporter to the briefing even though some network figures have expressed open disdain for the president.

For the most part, however, the president largely sounded positive notes as to practical developments over the past 24 hours of the crisis.

In addition to the waived copays and deductibles, Trump touted “some interesting” therapeutics that “will be announced over the next few weeks.” He said he has been working on getting a system that could sterilize health-care workers’ masks up to 20 times more quickly approved by the Food and Drug Administration.

Trump went on to praise the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and Federal Emergency Management Agency [FEMA] for turning New York City’s Javits Center into a makeshift emergency hospital.

“It’s an incredible, complex, top-of-the-line hospital. Everyone’s trying to figure out how they did it,” Trump said, noting that he was also unsure. “And, I was a good builder.”

The president maintained distance from other speakers at the briefing, and referenced social-distancing guidelines as soon as he took to the podium.

“Appreciate everybody being here — beautiful day in the Rose Garden,” Trump remarked as the press conference began. “Tremendous distance between chairs.”

“We’re all in this together — all us of us,” Trump said at the conclusion of the briefing. “I’ve never seen anything like it. It’s a beautiful thing to watch. Unfortunately, the enemy is death, so it’s very unpleasant. But, the level of competence, the level of caring, the level of love — I just think it’s brilliant. … I’m very proud to be your president.”

And, the overwhelming majority of Americans (you know, those of us who NEVER get polled, are proud to have you as our president, sir.

I realize that the preceding article was long. However, all you are going to see on the Main Stream Media today, will be snippets of the President at the Taskforce Press Conference, selectively edited to show President Trump in the worst light possible.

It is amazing to me how, in the midst of a pandemic when American lives are at stake, The Democratic Party’s Vanguard (i.e., minions) and certain Democratic Governors continue to play politics with American’ lives, in their all-consuming quest to somehow politically damage Trump.

During World War II, the entire nation came together as one to defeat the Axis of Evil.

Now, in 2020, average Americans, as shown in the polls, are solidly behind the President while the Democratic Party, the MSM, and those who believe their propaganda, like the hoarders, continue to attempt to take advantage of this attack by an invisible enemy for heir own selfish and political purposes.

Pitiful, huh?

I realize that President Trump has made mistakes and in no way am I trying to deify him.

However, the manner in which the President is communicating to the American public in a down-to-earth, unfiltered way is why the Democrats are all foaming at the mouth to somehow get President Trump out of office.

The President is not afraid to speak directly and forcefully. He is not a politician. He does not employ “weasel words” when he is speaking.

He speaks to us, not down to us.

And, try as they might, the Democrats just cannot overcome President Trump’s personal Communication Skills and his ability to communicate to and to resonate with the average Americans between the coasts who put him into office.

Even if their Vanguard and Propaganda Arm, the Main Stream Media, publishes “hit pieces” by cherry-picking and downright lying about things which he has said.

Average Americans are through being fooled by the Democrats.

Thy have proven to very unserious people in a very serious time.

Imagine if Joe Biden was President right now.

Get the picture?

Until He Comes,

KJ
