We've sure come a long way from "Obamacare will kill our nation's cherished seniors" to "Okay, we need the older people to die because the stock market is too low and we have an election coming up."
Trump on Hydroxychloroquine: "It's been around for a long time, so we know if things don't go as planned it's not going to kill anybody."
Fox News: “Drug cleared by Trump, FDA for coronavirus testing also found in fish tanks.”
Take them both off the air.

I'm self employed in construction related business in UK. Not out on site today as very confused by UK govt advice. I do work on my own, have virtually no contact with other workers or public and can easily keep away from people if they come near. But feel I have duty of care to other people not to go out.
Anyway I have a cat helping to keep me sane today. #UKlockdown

@IronMan2020 Also, there’s a world full of people who would line up for the chance.
@IronMan2020 “While Fauci said he and the President ‘disagree on some things,’ he described Trump as responsive: ‘He goes his own way. He has his own style. But on substantive issues, he does listen to what I say.’”
1. I hope they disagree on more than “some things.”
2. I know Dr. Fauci is in an almost impossible position here as an intelligent person who pulls focus away from trump, but does he really expect us to believe trump listens to anyone unless they have leverage over him?
Some good news from today - Colorado has abolished the death penalty.
I have said many times that the Republican Party should die. I did NOT mean that people who are Republicans should die. But that’s where this thing is heading. See Mississippi, for example.
Here's a phrase we need to hear more:
"Court sides with scientists."
Social distancing/physical distancing/safe-at-home/lock down/whatever you wish to call it is a strategy to create time to get other efforts in place (testing, hospital preparedness, etc.) in a fast-moving outbreak.
It's been made a necessity by a slow to acknowledge, disjointed early response and a lack of the ramping up of necessary resources by the president and by the Republican Senate.
Stay at home if you can.
Limit contact when you are out.
Don't bash "both sides."
@IronMan2020 Think of trump in front of a microphone as a grenade that's going to kill us all.
