From Passover we know that great challenges have been faced and overcome before. And this test will be met as well. Wishing all who are celebrating Passover - however you're able to celebrate - the sustenance provided by great tradition and the strength that comes from love.
There is a monotony to Trump's briefing - predictably again today he --Complains about states/governors --Claims early China travel restrictions --Touts value of an unproven drug --Blames others (W.H.O) --Praises his own actions --Says some form of "we have to get back"
Did I REALLY hear a Tiger King question? On a day with a record number of coronavirus deaths? I can't even
"I'm not a doctor, as you possibly have found out" - Donald Trump
An MD friend just texted me - livid- that the President suggested drugs to help are available “for immediate delivery”. In fact - the FDA chief points out - chloroquine IS approved as an anti-malarial but needs clinical trials before being used for coronavirus. NOT immediate
Big takeaway from this briefing: Trump is losing patience with social distancing - frustrated waiting to reopen the country - and it could well be that the data that convinced him to extend guidelines for 30 days won't be convincing - to him- any more.
Fascinating - I asked many @SenSanders supporters about their unions’ concern about Medicare for All. They told me yes, they have good insurance now but what if they lose their jobs? And they have friends and family w/o jobs (NV jobless rate is higher than national average)
Patriots owner Robert Kraft being charged with soliciting prostitution related to what FL police say is a massage parlor where women - who were told they were coming to US for legit jobs - were in fact held as virtual prisoners/sex workers.
Some very good news for NY health care workers: "We now have enough PPE for the foreseeable future" - Cuomo
