Good Tuesday morning.
Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:
- The president receives his intelligence briefing
- President Trump presents the Presidential Medal of Freedom to General Jack Keane
- 5:30PM Members of the Coronavirus Task Force hold a press briefing
Media continues panic-mongering, wishing for medical tragedies
OH MY G-D, DID TRUMP GET TESTED? DID PENCE GET TESTED? EEEK!
The Democrats and the media but I repeat myself are wishing so hard for the racistly-named (LOL) WuhanFlu to kill Americans so they can seize control of the government in November. So much cluck, cluck, clucking and no plan. What is your plan, Debbie Downers? How would you have handled the introduction of a Chinese pathogen into America differently than the Bad Orange Man? Remember, this virus was spreading around the world for about two months before anyone knew what was up and it was able to be politically exploited. But we hear nothing about solutions, only tweets and cable news peacocking.
CNN wants you to know, “The coronavirus crisis spawned new anxiety Monday in the US as confirmed cases soared, a cruise ship came home as another was told to stay away and the widening outbreak played a hand in the worst day for stock markets in more than a decade.”
New anxiety? The infected people on the ship are getting medical attention and the others will be quarantined. So what is this new anxiety? So far 26 people have died, 22 in the Washington nursing home, and 4 people outside of the nursing home. Is the Wuhan Flu spreading. Yes, like the flu spreads, it’s flu season. As I noted yesterday, tens of thousands of people die from the flu every year. “More than 18,000 Americans have died from this season’s generic flu so far, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In 2018, the CDC estimated, there were 80,000 flu deaths,” the NY Post reports.
The only thing that could make this coverage better is if some jackass like John Brennan weighed in. Mission accomplished. Brennan vomited up MSNBC about what a great job Obama (and Brennan who was Homeland Security adviser to Obama) during H1N1. How many people died from that? 12,000+ in the first year so great job, derp state John. The malignant narcissist Brennan said he worried that Trump is psychologically unable “to put the country’s well-being first.” Putting it first like staging a coup to nullify the will of the voters? Ha! LOLGF. Other Democrats want Trump to stop holding rallies, no word on Biden or Sanders cutting back.
Trump will propose some kind of relief and stimulus package in response to the WuhanFlu.
“We’re going to be talking about hourly wage earners getting help so that they can be in a position where they’re not going to ever miss a paycheck,” Trump said, flanked by officials from the government’s coronavirus task force.
“This was something that we were thrown into and we’re going to handle it and we have been handling it very well,” he added.
On the other hand, despite the media/Democrat hot housing, most people have confidence the U.S. healthcare system can handle the coronavirus outbreak.
Remember to wash your hands and seek medical attention if you need it.

Big day for the Democrat presidential candidates
It’s a big day for the two male senior citizens fighting for the Democrat nomination for president. Sure Tulsi is still in the game but those social justice reporters and Democrats don’t really want a girl in the mix unless it’s one of their girls. The big kerfuffle is whether Sleepy Joe will get to sit down during the debate this Sunday. Nothing is more confidence building than a presidential prospect who can’t stand up for a few hours.
The DNC has agreed to change the debate format so Sleepy Joe can sit. Many people think this is the DNC catering to their favorite Biden and it is.
What is Biden going to do if he’s the nominee and he doesn’t have the rotted DNC to protect him by corruptly changing the rules that let him basically lounge around in a bed taking questions from nice people instead of having to stand on his feet and directly debate? https://t.co/W8Elnn98eO
