    NYC mayor deBlasio taking potshots at Trump . . .BUTTTTTT!

    Seems de Blasio hasn't been very happy with Trump's willingness to release monies or whatever other assistance de Blasio feels NYC is "owed" amid the current state of emergency due to a virus.

    But then, of course, NYC hasn't been a bastion of following rules and recommendations of CDC and WHO worldwide recommendations for disease and prevention. In both 2018 and 2019 NYC suffered outbreaks with the measles - anyone recall those? Anyone recall the reason for a measles outbreak when the MMR vaccine has been used for well over 20 years?

    If you guessed "human bullheadedness and stupidity" you win the top prize. Go have a beer on me.

    Seems the outbreak was somewhat blamed on an increased and expanded travel to Jerusalem (where the vaccines are not as popular) but the biggest blame goes to those "celebrities" and other Scientology geeks (think Jenny McCarthy, et al) who advocate anti-vaccine positions. They turn their nose up at recommendations then want DC to send more money when their actions bite'em in the butt!

    The possession of arms by the people is the ultimate warrant that government governs only with the consent of the governed.

    The GOV in NY is acting like a 2 year old having a temper tantrum. They don't have any more coming than any other state or city.

    Sadly our GOV is acting the same way. She's whining because she can't get enough PPE's. The Feds can't give something they don't have. You get a proportional share & that's it. There is no more.

    Trump sent them an entire medical ship, for gosh sakes. I think Trump could send all medical personnel to NYC and that idiot mayor would find something to complain about. But, the people who elected him deserve exactly what they're getting.

    Donald Trump is focused on protecting people. If Deblahsio wants to make it about politics, the people of NY will pay the price.

    Specifically, since Trump isn't counting on New York or California to win 4 more years anyway. They sure didn't help him to win the first time.

    It is with little wonder that NYC is the epicenter of the COVID 19 outbreak in the US. Not that it's really the citizens fault, but those folks live like rats. Had a Marine Corps buddy that lived in NYC. Went home with him a few times. Family lived in a 17'X24' apartment. One bedroom, small kitchen & bath. Tiny living room with a set of bunk beds. FIVE of them lived there at one time.

    Stayed in a motel while we were there. That room was bigger than their whole apartment. When I asked him about it, he just said it was normal for folks to live like that. Was in the 60's, but I can't imagine it's much better now.

    CA. is another story. The are being forced to live like pigs because of the homeless situation. I's a wonder they don't have more issues than just COVID 19.

    You reap what you sow. Nobody wants to say it, but is there any wonder why these bastions of the left are suffering the most from this virus? We all make choices in life, some choices/lifestyles involve higher risks. There are almost as many cases of this virus in New York as in the rest of the states combined.

    I admit I’m not a huge Trump fan. But there’s a lot of undeserved grief being directed his way in all this mess. New York is screaming for ventilators, New York is screaming for this, New York is screaming for that- so are 49 other states. People are yelling that Trump should stop letting celebrities get tested, and save those tests for first responders- like Trump has a say in who gets tested. Trump is even being blamed for some dimwit who ate fish tank cleaner because it’s listed ingredients contained the word chloroquine. I saw the press conference the news keeps referencing, Trump did not say chloroquine would cure covid-19. He said he had been presented with encouraging evidence that suggested it could be a game changer. (He does seem to like that expression) The press conference also did not say chloroquine had been approved for such use. It had been approved for testing, to verify that evidence. In that press conference the Surgeon General and the Director of the FDA urged patience while they conducted the testing. Nobody said go ahead, give chloroquine.
    My question is, besides wanting the feds to do his job for him, what is DeBlasio doing about getting ventilators for New York?

    The dems have been doing all they can to interfere with Trump, just out of spite. I may be voting for Trump this year- just out of spite.
    I don’t know what my spirit animal might be, but I’m pretty sure it has rabies.
