A covid response
Damn even for NY Cuomo and de Blasio were telling people in early march to not effect your day to day lives and it wasn't that series and they were encouraging downplaying the virus.
February 6 - Biden Public Health Advisory Committee member Dr. Irwin Redlener said, “Yes, there is uncertainty, and the headlines are dramatic. But right now, the chances of any of us or anyone we know ever getting a severe, potentially lethal form of the Wuhan virus is negligible.”
February 11 - Top Biden advisor Ron Klain said, “A serious epidemic – now, the coronavirus may be that, it may not be that. The evidence suggests it's probably not that.”
February 20 - Biden Public Health Advisory Committee member Dr. Zeke Emanuel said, “many of the experts are saying, well the warm weather is going to come and, just like with the flu, the coronavirus is going to go down and may move into the Southern Hemisphere.”
This was all after the travel restrictions from china on Jan 31st.
Im not going to play scientist because I'm not one but there are plenty of theories behind it and it was a new virus that simply even the experts didn't know what to expect with this potential man mad virus. I'm sure a lot of things could have been done differently I'm not naive but this idea that it could have easily been new virus could have been handled differently with the little information we received from China on the spread is a bit ridiculous to me.
You do know you're allowed to make mistakes and turn things around, right? Like Cuomo did. Not double down like Trump continues to do.
This is pathetic. And it's hilarious you defend it like a sycophant.
The travel restrictions didn't stop ****. People still came over from China and people still came over from Europe. Which is why we got the hardest hit. But then we listened to the science and turned things around. What the **** has Trump done other than attack science and instigate ****? Please, tell me what he's done? Because this country, compared to others, is near the bottom with their response.
Joke response from a joke republican.
Double down like what? Trying to open the country back up? You do understand we also have an economy and that can't completely go in the **** right? Its not simply just stay home forever and this will be fixed. People need to work, people need to make money. Businesses being shut down how do they survive? To say anyone had the perfect response would just be crazy with how unknown it was.
You can't sit here and bang deficit deficit deficit and then say he is doubling down and trying to restart the economy.
And I never said "travel ban" I said travel restriction...could you imagine the response if he banned travel? They were calling him xenophobic for a restriction...could you imagine if he just shut other people out? I'm sure that would have went over well.
Also I think I have been pretty civil to you and we have know each other for a long time on this forum to respect one another. So I find it pretty disingenuous that you can't be tolerant of someone else when they are trying to be tolerant of you to at least not start the name calling.
Trump literally said travel ban. You can play semantics all you want.
I'm done with civility with Trump supporters because giving ya'll a platform got us into this mess in the first place. You can not be a rational human being and support this man. Look at the **** you're saying. Pick a little thing here and there, a sprinkle of WHATABOUTISM, make ridiculous rationalizations and ignore the rest of the points. That's what Trump has reduced you to. You're a joke, dude.
