    Trump fiddling while Rome burns.
    He has his favored recipients for ppe, e.g. Florida, which still has not been shut down.
    Imagine, the Fed is also competing for ppe on behalf of the military, vets. Imagine, Cuomo who is on the frontline, in the epicenter of deadly catastrophe is being outtbid by other states, as well as his own government.
    A Trump fantasy come true.
    A riff on the popular “Your’re fired!”
    A game show about competition with a death senentce for the loser.

      Beyond urgent: We “need to nationalize the medical equipment supply chain,
      to put the power of the federal government to make the supply chain of this stuff better, to rationalize it, to make order out of the chaos, to get enough supplies and quality supplies to where they are needed and to have the states stop competing against each other and driving these bidding wars.” (Maddow)

    • March 27, 2020 at 1:48 pm

      We need a national response = Someone to co-ordinate critical ppe medical needs across the land.
      Some medical equipment is out there. But when you can’t get your hands on it people die. What we’re seeing is the capitalistic-minded system run amok, the U.S. scarcity-driven privatized medical system coming home to roost. (Sorry folks….this is what Sen. Bernie Sanders has consistently and relentlessly warned about.)

    Indeed. I agree Bridgeriverpass with your assessment. Congrats on your Au ⭐⭐
    Thanks, NW🙌🤗🙌
    tRump is dithering out of incompetence, vengeance, wickedly REALITY propaganda programming that ONLY the Blue States & Cities will burn…contaminated…infected with this awful #COVID19 disease while the United States of America burns. Donald Trump is sadly mistaking. The Virus will hit the Red States harder…unfortunatley. They tend to have more uninsured, in poorer health and the Govt in many of these States are not well run…Trump will have the blood of those who will die in his hands. He is a despicable person.

      On another note, I just learned we have had 8 suicides in Knox County in the last 48 hours. Of couse, the quote from our libertarian county mayor is totally focused on blaming the economy and people being out of work. Forgive me, Jesus. I truly hate these people.

    I am MAD. Not just at Trump and his administration…that is a given. I’m mad at the scientists and medical doctors that stand up with Trump daily during his briefings and let this shit show go on. I understand Faucci has to play a balancing act…but he has the power and authority to speak up. Yes..i know he has…but he needs to state what we know is happening in our medical supply chain, that the federal government must step in and help the states. Letting states fend for themselves, competing with other states (yes Lord of the Flies…or Thunderdom) must stop! Being silent is killing people. No we don’t have enough testing (Trump says we do), no we don’t have adequate PPE (Trump says we do), no we don’t have enough ventilators (Trump says “why are so many needed… the states should be happy and thank me for what I alone have made available to them.”) I want our President Obama to break his rule of not addressing Trump. I want our President to explain what his administration did in regards to funding the CDC, WHO and the formation of the Pandemic team. So much bullshit everyday!!! Bullshit that is addressed is piecemeal fashion so the entire nation is left with no real understanding of what the hell is going on. I am tired of not having President Obama defend his record. His surrogates can’t do it for him (they try but who is listening to them besides us). This is a national emergency. Our current “leader” is leading us to hell and so many want to “respect the office and the norms”, when this asshole respects nothing. I am beyond mad and angry.

      I AGREE!!!!! I AGREE!!!!!! This IS a national EMERGENCY! PO needs to speak up, not just in tweets. I did hear a suggestion this morning on the Joe Madison show. How about if PO, President Bush and President Carter came together and made a joint statement on NATIONAL TV. All the stations carry it. THIS HAS GOT TO STOP!!! Yes, I am screaming because someone needs to too!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      A young woman who works in the self-checkout area (have only been to the store once in quite a while) told me she’s working long hours, and about the virus “I think we should be getting extra pay”. Workers there receive rock bottom minimum wage. imo not only that she should have a real protections = real masks! (The latest problem with no union.) And management should be gladly providing a real mask. Her life is literally on the line to pay bills. Instead of essential workers being used like cannon fodder, can we at least thank them by protecting them?
      —Did the bill put anything in place for those who don’t qualify for UI ?

    It has also been about confusion…chaos…lies…

    i believe that Trump and his administration are deliberately withholding treatment form the states…not caring if people die…i believe that he is leveraging the death and suffering of the American people as a campaign strategy
