Don’t Worry, America, Jared Kushner Is Going to Save You From COVID-19

Having conquered Middle East peace and innovated America to within an inch of its life, the Trump son-in-law is now taming COVID-19. Oh—Ivanka too!

Wednesday, during the latest installment of his daily briefings that have become must-see TV, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he spoke with Jared Kushner. You know Kushner—the president’s son-in-law. The president's son-in-law is a member of the president’s COVID-19 taskforce, but he is not a doctor or an elected official. In fact, Jared has no experience handling pandemics, or any medical background whatsoever. Jared Kushner doesn’t know about science or medicine but Cuomo must appeal to him for help from the federal government.

And that’s not the only place the president’s son-in-law has popped up the last few days. One of the biggest questions we've all been puzzling over is, why won’t the president invoke the wartime Defense Production Act to force companies to make ventilators?

He “signed two executive orders citing provisions of the Defense Production Act” but then refused to use those provisions. Later it was revealed that Trump refused to use the wartime law “reportedly after corporations successfully lobbied his top adviser and son-in-law, Jared Kushner.” Meanwhile, Cuomo holds continual pressers that have the same refrain again and again: “We need the Federal help, and we need the Federal help now"

When a California teen became ill, his parents took him to an urgent care center and were *turned away because he didn't have health insurance*.

Doctors And Nurses Say More People Are Dying Of COVID-19 In The US Than We Know

“The numbers are grossly underreported.

I know for a fact that we’ve had three deaths in one county where only one is listed on the website,” one California ER doctor told BuzzFeed News.

Medical professionals around the US told BuzzFeed News that the official numbers of people who have died of COVID-19 are not consistent with the number of deaths they’re seeing on the front lines.


On the day the US reported its highest weekly unemployment claim of all time by quadruple, the Dow Jones rose 1,300 points.

Trump en Xi praten over coronavirus

(ABM FN-Dow Jones) De Amerikaanse president heeft een "erg goed" telefoongesprek gehad met de Chinese president Xi Jinping over de bestrijding van het coronavirus. Dit meldde de Amerikaanse president vrijdag op Twitter.

Volgens Trump spraken de twee over het coronavirus, dat grote delen van de wereld momenteel verwoest.

"China heeft al veel meegemaakt en heeft veel geleerd over het virus. We werken nauw samen", aldus Trump.

Xi riep volgens de South China Morning Post op tot eenheid en om internationaal meer samen te werken om de verspreiding van het virus te stoppen en de economie weer aan de praat te krijgen.

"Het virus kent geen grenzen en de pandemie is onze gezamenlijke vijand", citeerde de krant Xi.

Ook zou Xi volgens de Chinese krant voorzichtig de VS hebben opgeroepen China minder vijandig te bejegenen.

Er waren de nodige spanningen tussen de twee landen, mede omdat Trump meermaals het coronavirus aanduidde als 'het Chinese virus'.

Een ijzersterke voorspelling van Trump: "Er overlijden mensen die nog niet eerder gestorven zijn!"

Correctie: toen ik dit checkte bleek het niet te kloppen:
"A quote falsely attributed to President Donald Trump has spread widely online, ratcheting up animosity over his leadership during the COVID-19 pandemic.

One popular version of the claim on Facebook features a picture of Trump and says: “‘People are dying who have never died before.’ – Donald J. Trump, March 18, 2020.”

Other versions claim the date was March 17.

But we could find no record of Trump having ever said that.

Dat Amerika een zwakzinnige liegende narcist als president heeft, vind ik erg. Maar dat de helft van de bevolking hier achteraan holt, vind ik nog veel griezeliger. Mijn mensbeeld wordt er niet beter van.

Van de republikeins stemmende bevolking gelooft 80% hun president, bij de democraten is dat minder dan een kwart. Als iedere believer netjes doet wat de president hen vertelt, is het denkbaar dat zijn kiezerspubliek veel meer 'last' van corona gaat hebben, dan dat van de democraten....

After Considering $1 Billion Price Tag for Ventilators, White House Has Second Thoughts
A deal with General Motors and Ventec Life Systems to produce tens of thousands of the critical lifesaving devices seemed imminent. Then the announcement was pulled back.

Al Kipone
CARTERSVILLE, Ga. — For three days, he was hooked up to an oxygen tube. For six days after that, he was cooped up in a 26-foot RV in a special quarantine camp run by the state of Georgia.
So when Joey Camp, a 30-year-old Waffle House line cook, learned he no longer had COVID-19 and could go home, he figured things were getting back to normal. Immediately, the former National Guardsman started making lunch and dinner plans: all-you-can-eat wings at Hooters? A super burrito from Los Arcos Mexican restaurant?

Soon, heavier concerns loomed. The divorced father of two made $10.65 an hour at Waffle House and has lived with friends since being evicted last year from his apartment. After leaving quarantine, he worked just one shift before his boss cut his hours because so few customers were coming in. His other part-time gig, as a party bus driver, went away.

“I’m making zero dollars for the foreseeable future,” Camp said. “A person who makes $50,000 or $60,000 a year just isn’t understanding what this means.”

Almost every day since he got out of quarantine, Camp has squeezed into his dusty black ’98 Chevy Camaro with its cracked windshield and driven, seat belt unbuckled, to a string of restaurants: Hooters and Applebee’s, Waffle House and Buffalo’s, Los Arcos and Huddle House.


A libertarian who voted for President Trump in 2016 and plans to vote for him again, Camp compares COVID-19 to the flu.

“It’s not going to kill the vast majority of the population,” he said. “People are hearing 3.4% mortality. They’re not hearing the 96.6% survival rate.”


With minus $3.33 in his checking account and no savings, it wasn’t like he wasn’t any better off than his co-workers.

“If I have to, I’ll make a bow and arrow and go hunting in the woods,” he said after driving past the nearly deserted Waffle House.

If things got really desperate and society collapsed, at least his roommate, Trey, has a couple of pistols, an AR-15 and a 12-gauge shotgun.

A few hours later, he was on the porch with Trey when his boss called: the diner would close, at least for now.

“It doesn’t make any sense,” he said. “When Waffle House shuts down, that’s crisis mode.”

He paused, shaking his head.

It didn’t feel like crisis mode. All around him, everything was calm: wind chimes tinkled softly in the spring breeze; birds chirped as they flitted around a pair of blooming Bradford pear trees.

“I don’t know how to deal with it,” he said. “It does not compute at all.”

But when he picked up his cellphone to check the number of new coronavirus cases, doubt crept in. Was he wrong? Could he get reinfected?

“Worldwide, it’s starting to kill more people,” he said. “Maybe this thing is mutating and becoming more deadly. And that worries the hell out of me, because that puts me back in the pool.”

By Wednesday, he had found a temporary job — making hand sanitizer.

WASHINGTON — In the days before the Senate unanimously passed a roughly $2-trillion bailout bill for the nation’s nosediving economy, lobbyists and special-interest groups flooded Congress with long-standing wishes and wants — though couched as urgent needs in a time of crisis.

Businesses owned by President Trump and his immediate family, or by the vice president, top federal officials and members of Congress, are specifically barred from obtaining loans under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act, known as the CARES Act. Steven T. Mnuchin, the Treasury secretary, is not empowered to lift those bans.

Still, language in the bill could allow the Trump Organization, the private holding company for the president’s businesses, to benefit from two provisions designed to help restaurants and hotels, according to the New York Times.

Other tax provisions could provide a bonanza for wealthy real estate investors, potentially including the president and members of his family.

Senate Republicans inserted a provision that would permit wealthy investors to use real estate losses to minimize their taxes. The estimated cost of the change over 10 years is $170 billion, according to the New York Times.

Trump: I don't believe you really need that many ventilators

In an interview with Sean Hannity, the president again minimized the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic.

Gov. Andrew Cuomo of New York says his state needs 30,000 ventilators to respond to the escalating coronavirus crisis.

President Donald Trump doesn’t believe him.

Speaking with Sean Hannity on Fox News on Thursday night, Trump again minimized the impact of the global coronavirus pandemic, casting doubt on the need for tens of thousands of ventilators for hospitals responding to the crisis.

“I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be,” he said. “I don't believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You go into major hospitals sometimes, and they’ll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they’re saying, ‘Can we order 30,000 ventilators?’”

Dus: je stopt de onderhandelingen met GM, Ford, je geeft een interview aan Hannity (Fox) en zegt dat ze die beademingsapparaten helemaal niet nodig hebben en erg duur zijn en dan tweet je de volgende dag:

Donald J. Trump
General Motors MUST immediately open their stupidly abandoned Lordstown plant in Ohio, or some other plant, and START MAKING VENTILATORS, NOW!!!!!! FORD, GET GOING ON VENTILATORS, FAST!!!!!!
