I was wondering how Fox News and Fauci were going to try to spin Trump's failure to act on this pandemic for ten weeks as being all Obama's fault.

Turns out it was the "rules and regulations from am earlier time we were stuck with", referring I guess to the ones left over from Trump's gutting of the Health Structure set up by Bush and Obama to deal with exactly this sort of crisis.

Verrrrry Interesting - but DUMB!

So Hy-Vee's employees need more time to finish moving the few Name Brands they still stock to the very top and bottom shelves so the optimal shelf space can be entirely devoted to their crappy "Store Brand" merchandise?

No wonder Price Chopper's stores are so crowded these days!

“When you have 15 people, and the 15 within a couple of days is going to be down to close to zero, that’s a pretty good job we’ve done.”
Donald J. Trump (02/26/20)

“I would rather because I like the numbers being where they are,” Trump said. “I don’t need to have the numbers double because of one ship that wasn’t our fault. And it wasn’t the fault of the people on the ship either, OK? It wasn’t their fault either, and they’re mostly Americans. So, I can live either way with it. I’d rather have them stay on, personally.”

The Fake News new narrative is disgraceful & false!”

With Trump's raging dementia, no matter how many times you tell him something, he'll get it wrong, then deny he said it, and a week later call the video of him saying "false news"!
