Hey, Bigot: When you've lost CNN...

CNN’s David Axelrod Warns Dems That Trump’s Strong Virus Response May Help Him Win Re-Election

Quote:
President Trump has taken command of the virus emergency and America is responding to the threat as we always do – together.

Even CNN, never known to compliment Trump, is praising his strong response to the situation.
Bold mine.

See any Prog media praising Blackface Elbowgate McGroper for his strong response? Me, either.

Justin Trudeau: Canada’s National Disaster

Quote:
Very few countries have been spared the COVID-19 catastrophe. Thanks to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s late and inadequate response to the threat, Canada’s number of infected grows daily. Much like Obama’s delayed response to the H1N1 pandemic of 2009, no decisive action was taken to combat the coronavirus until this week, two and a half months after it was blatantly obvious we had a highly contagious new virus loose in the world. As of this writing, our borders have finally been closed to non-Canadian citizens—but with exceptions: permanent residents, diplomats, air crews, and U.S. citizens. “Family members of Canadian citizens and permanent residents will also be allowed to come home,” said Trudeau.

One can readily see where the loophole is that vitiates Trudeau’s pronouncements. The Vancouver Sun reports that over 40 percent of Metro Vancouver residents are of Asian heritage, of whom approximately half are of Chinese origin. They are free until further restrictions to travel from China to Canada.
There are cheap, direct flights from Beijing and Hong Kong to Vancouver, Canada’s western portal to the orient. Clearly, Vancouver, where my wife and I have recently moved, is waiting to explode with the disease, as did Milan, which hosts the largest Chinese community in Italy—the administrative region of northern Lombardy was the source of the Italian infection.
Bold mine.

Nice.

Canada will not bar irregular asylum seekers over COVID-19 concerns

Quote:
Canada’s partial travel ban over COVID-19 will not stop asylum seekers from crossing into the country at unofficial entries, but Public Safety Minister Bill Blair said intercepted migrants will face additional health checks and be asked to self-isolate.

Mr. Blair said border officials will continue to take asylum seekers into custody after they enter Canada [fukcing illegally], as they have been, but will also start screening for symptoms of COVID-19 and ask migrants where they have been. The asylum seekers, who would normally be moved to temporary shelter facilities after being processed at the border, will self-isolate for two weeks, like every other person entering Canada.
Bold mine.

"Thigns!!!"

BAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!



Face it, people. Trudles was a disaster waiting to happen prior to being elected. His post-national corona virus non-response is merely the chickens coming home to roost...

Wuhan Flu

Quote:
Sorry, America, the Full Lockdown Is Coming.
Whether you are reading this in your living room in Vancouver, office in London, or on a subway in New York City, you need to think hard, and fast, about two crucial questions: Where, and with whom, do you want to spend the next six to 12 weeks of your life, hunkered down for the epidemic duration? And what can you do to make that place as safe as possible for yourself and those around you?

Your time to answer those questions is very short—a few days, at most. Airports will close, trains will shut down, gasoline supplies may dwindle, and roadblocks may be set up. Nations are closing their borders, and as the numbers of sick rise, towns, suburbs, even entire counties will try to shut the virus out by blocking travel. Wherever you decide to settle down this week is likely to be the place in which you will be stuck for the duration of your epidemic.

To appreciate what lies ahead for the United States, Canada, Mexico, and the United Kingdom, pay heed to Italy, France, and Germany. The United States, for example, is currently tracking exactly where Italy was about 10 days ago. France and Germany, which track two to five days ahead of the United States, are now revving up measures akin to those taken by Italy, including lockdowns on movement and social activity. In a matter of days, the United States will follow suit.

If you live alone, have no family members or close friends who require your special attention, and have no alternative living space, you have no decision to make. You are where you will be for coming weeks.
Interesting discussion in the comments.

Mayor of NYC Bill DiBlasio: Get Ready for a "Shelter in Place" Order For NYC Within the Next 48 Hours

Quote:
This is a serious escalation.
New Yorkers should prepare for a "shelter-in-place" order in the coming days as local officials try to contain the fast-moving coronavirus that’s spreading throughout the U.S., New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said Tuesday, adding that a decision will be made in the next 48 hours.

"We are all deeply concerned ... this is quite clear this is a fast growing crisis," he said at a press conference. "All New Yorkers, even though a decision has not been made by the city or the state, I think that all New Yorkers should be prepared right now for the possibility of a shelter-in-place order."

Not the Babylon Bee: "Baltimore Mayor Begs Residents To Stop Shooting Each Other So Hospital Beds Can Be Used For Coronavirus Patients"

Quote:
Real headline, from CBS.
Baltimore Mayor Jack Young urged residents to put down their guns and heed orders to stay home after multiple people were shot Tuesday night amidst the coronavirus pandemic.

Young said hospital beds are needed to treat positive COVID-19 patients and not for senseless violence.
Maybe they can put up signs declaring that Baltimore is a Murder Free Zone, and that any and all murders must take place at least 1000 yards outside the city limits.
Yep:

On the lighter side.

Bar Offers ‘Buy A Corona, Get A Free Roll Of Toilet Paper’ Promo

Quote:
Yeah, the bar decided to offer the free toilet paper and well, the post immediately went viral. Because it’s hilarious and dumb, and yes I know it’s a joke. But I will say this, whoever came up with this idea needs a pretty heavy raise because they sure had their name out there for quite some time. I wonder if people actually showed up or not. If you’re in Wisconsin, can you let me know if this is an actual thing? You gotta love some good sense of humor, we sure need it right now.

Hey, Bigot: When you've lost the NY governor...

Cuomo: You know who’s doing a good job on NY’s COVID-19 outbreak? Trump

Quote:
In his press conference updating events on the COVID-19 outbreak, Cuomo emphasized that he and Trump have always had a good working relationship, and that Trump has been “fully engaged” in the coronavirus containment efforts in New York.
So, ya going to run back to Mother Jones fruitlessly searching for a rebuttal on that bastard Trump and the crappy job he's doing or are you just going to hide under your bed & hope nobody notices your silence?

Either way, reality will be right here, waiting...
