Trump to travel to see naval hospital ship deploy to NYC

Source: The Hill

A Navy hospital ship will deploy to New York City this weekend to alleviate the onslaught of coronavirus patients filling the area's hospitals, President Trump told reporters Thursday.

Trump will travel to Norfolk, Va., on Saturday to bid farewell to the USNS Comfort. The ship is expected to dock in New York on Monday, roughly a week ahead of schedule after it had to undergo repairs.

"Iíll kiss it goodbye," Trump said during a coronavirus briefing on Thursday. "Itís in Virginia, as you know, and I will go and weíll be waving together because I suspect the media will be following."

The trip to Norfolk will be Trump's first time leaving Washington, D.C., in a little more than two weeks. He has remained largely hunkered down in the White House as the virus has spread across the country.

17. It will provide him

with photos to show during the campaign. He is going around taking alot of those these past months. If he has or gets Corona, he will show pictures of himself, with the ship, and saying, "I caught it trying to help the people in my country"

Besides, a 1000 bed ship will be pathetic compared to what NY City is facing. And it probably doesn't have 1000 ventilators.

1000 beds, for what NY City is facing, is like pissing in the ocean and expecting it to change color........

6. Sad thing is new outbreaks will happen because of all the activity to make this video op happen


People coordinating and physically doing things like moving podiums and security will have to come into contact with hundreds, maybe thousands of people they wouldn't if Oranganus didn't have trumpanzees he needs to keep impressed.

Basically, one ship is absolutely a help, but it is a drop in the bucket that is needed.

7. It would be much more effective if he were to go to New York

to meet the ship as it's coming in...New York, the US epicenter of COVID-19.

Go ahead, Big Guy. Take your chances.

16. No, that's the last thing NYC needs

To divert law enforcement and other resources to host a presidential visit in the middle of a crisis.

After Sandy, then-Mayor Bloomberg asked President Obama not to come for that reason, and he respected that. Somehow I can't imagine Trump doing the same.

14. He'll have every crew member on the docks with instructions to cheer him.

It's not a rally, but it's a lot larger than a presser, and there will be a lot less confrontation.

I predict the Secretary of Defense will also be there to praise Fat Donnie's "bold leadership."

The ship is going to be used as an overflow hospital for non-coronavirus infected patients. All it will take is one infected patient to break that sterile environment and that purpose is defeated.

20. He'll probably want to break a bottle of sparkling grape juice against the stern.

And rename it USS Trump Comfort. Of course, first, he has to figure out what's the bow and what's the stern.
