    Yet I’ve just seen a report that a huge crowd turned out to watch the Naval hospital ship arrive in Manhattan.
    WTF is wrong with these people?!? NYC is an epicenter hot spot for viral outbreak and these fools can’t follow simple instructions to stay in their homes.
    If it’s not bailing out of the city to come down and infect the south, it’s ignoring orders to stay inside and not gather in groups.
    Then NYC will whine for help. These have to be the rudest, most self centered people on the face of the earth.

    And Rush is on the air today talking about how California "only" has 2 deaths per day or some BS like that.

    I just don't get why he is being so obtuse.

    He's afraid... He's in the highest risk category and would likely die if he gets it.

    You can bet he's not going out into social circles kissing and hugging people right and left...

    I heard one doc on Fox said he's taking it. I'm fine with that. But the preemptive hoarding not only needs to stop, it needs to be prosecuted. It's fraud.

    Because this pandemic is potentially bad for Trump (it would be potentially bad for any president), there are millions of people who want to believe one or more of the following things: it's a conspiracy, it's no worse than the regular flu, it's a plot to destroy the economy, and so on. My guess is that Rush is one of those people, or he realizes a huge portion of his audience is, and therefore he can't afford to lose them by reporting reality, so he's pretending.

    I can't speak to his integrity - I have never listened to his show but I do like his general philosophy regarding government.

    WI just added 14,702 cases?? That's a lot of testing coming in all at once. That's nearly 10% of all U.S. cases.

    The evidence continues to pile up that confirmed cases is a fraction of real cases.

    The same thing happened in New York maybe five days ago. The number was revised way down. Sometimes it seems multiple reports get out regarding the same numbers. I know worldometers has greatly reduced the number of updates they do per day since that first major New York error.

    Yeah seems to be an error. Someone used the negative number.

    Per CDC, during 2017-2018 flu season over 61.000 died in the US from seasonal flu. This makes over 5.000 deaths per month.
    I wonder how did we survive that without even paying serious attention to it?
    As of today, we have approx. 2.500 COVID19 deaths since the beginning of 2020. That is about 800 deaths per month. Turn your TV off - that is the COVID19's real Patient Zero.

    Geezus enough already. Talk about cherry picking your stats.

    COVID-19 is already killing 3 times more people per day than the flu is. And it's just starting

    Did you join GT 3 days ago just to be an ignorant troll? Ignored forever.

    Maddow was howling on TV last night that Trump briefings shouldn't be televised for his "lies".

    Kansas up to 368, that's another 58 cases from yesterday, 8 deaths. Interestingly that was the same increase as yesterday. Of other interest, female cases now out number male cases, 187 female and 181 male.

    Seems to me the growth in NY is slowing down, percentage-wise. Mortality rate will be getting higher following the steps the case curve (1-2 weeks behind?)

    You bring up Trump like it was his calculations. Where did he get that number? Isn't the author of that number walking back his predictions now?

    She and other people like her should be locked up in a mental institution, at least now during the USA's war with CV19. There is no excuse for speaking misinformation to the masses and spreading panic to same. Seems there are many more stupid people that I thought in the USA, with a recent poll(some msm paper, maybe Wash Post) showing Biden slightly ahead of Trump for upcoming 2020 election. WTF?

    Well I don't believe in polls as they are just bias-distortions. So that poll just proves my point that polls are meaningless(Seen Biden on TV lately? Think he'll win 2020?).Trump ain't perfect but he's doing a pretty darn good job fighting against an invisible enemy the CV19. Name any other candidate or former President that would do better?
