Kayleigh McEnany is taken out of context again. She absolutely said Science should not stand in the way of schools reopening, meaning, if you listen to the entire sentence, that there is no science or statistics showing that kids shouldn't be physically back in school. In fact, there is empirical evidence that supports reopening schools fully, and numerous pediatricians support that, even on MSNBC.

Thank god mayor mckneely said that non city entities and their directors that receive city funding can’t make more than the city manager does, how smart of you mayor mcdrinkerson, the city manager makes $250,000 a year. Makes you wonder how much these crooks like Gwen grant and the morons at the jazz district were making to begin with.

I bet Gwen is pissed that she had to take a pay cut for her useless part time job.

No, actually she'll just double her efforts at shaking down and intimidating more corporations for cash.
There are always plenty of folks around KCMO who are terrified at being called names and threatened.
That's how the system works.
Just ask Jessie and Al.
And look at all the vandalism taking place against private businesses in the P&L District, even as the city electeds approve another $7 million of taxpayer money to follow the over $100 million that's disappeared there.
Maybe the activists can claim the police are doing the damage.
Kneeling may be in order.

Attorney General McCarthy strikes again!
I expect him to say any day now that "I hold in my hand aa list of 150 names of Hollywood Executives who are members of the Chinese Communist Party"!

Seriously, I understand that blind abject and unquestioning devotion to Donald Trump is demanded in order to keep a job in this Administration, but does Barr have any concept at all of what the Attorney General OF THE UNITED STATES is supposed to do?

(hint... HE IS NOT SUPPOSED TO BE THE PRESIDENT'S PERSONAL LAWYER!)

11:59. No.

“And when he says open, he means open in full, kids being able to attend each and every day at their school. The science should not stand in the way of this.”

Moments later: she quoted one guy, Scott Atlas, a neuroradiology chief from Stanford “The science is on our side here. And we encourage localities and states to just simply follow the science and open our schools. ”

Now, I'm sure Dr. Atlas is highly respected in his field but he's not a pediatrician or epidemiologist. And he's Fox News contributor. Take that how you want it.

The American Academy of Pediatrics does endorse a return to school for elementary school age children based on mounting evidence that the virus in young children is uncommon. That does not include middle school and high school kids.

At a minimum her use of the phrase was fucking idiotic and a statement of conflict to begin with (science shouldn't stand in they......the science supports it) and I'm sure she pulled it out of her little subject tabbed notebook she brings to every press conference so she can provide a smarmy half ass answer any true lawyer would give.

Right you are! He's supposed to be the President's wing man, like Obama's AG Holder said. And Obama did not contradict him.
