New coronavirus cases at 50,000 for four straight days, and Dr. Fauci is MIA! “We think it’s important for our viewers to hear from Dr. Anthony Fauci and the Centers for Disease Control. But we have not been able to get our requests for Dr. Fauci approved by the Trump administration in the last three months, and the CDC not at all." - M. Brennan, CBS Face the Nation.

"Yup red same crap different day..." I'm announcing a new policy today. From now on, I will not debate with anyone who does not have a unique handle. Too often, when challenged for facts, these cowards simply slip away and then pretend they are someone else. As always, I am happy to exchange comments, insults, barbs, thoughts etc. with anyone. But please, it's already an anonymous forum. The least you can do is stand by what you say.

The biggest increase in Covid-19 cases is in places run by fascists ... Brazil, India and the United States. Meanwhile trump is actively radicalizing his angry, ignorant and intolerant supporters as weapons against anyone who opposes his bid for total control of the government. Witness the "militias" who are now showing up heavily armed spewing right-wing conspiracies & propaganda, all tacitly approved and encouraged by our Fascist-in-Chief.

Hey red Emma look up the story from nursing home diresctors in New York City. The health dept didn’t respond to their requests. Wall Street journal did a good story on the subject.

trump is making fun of wearing masks, repeatedly saying the virus will just go away, making the following of medical advice political, not taking responsibility for his own actions and policy, and willingly sacrificing older folks - only a cult would consider this leadership. Those states that followed republican trumps rhetoric now have skyrocketing infection rates - that is what his lack of leadership and republicans blind obedience has accomplished.
