New Mexico Gov. Michelle Lujan Grisham raised alarms with President Donald Trump Monday about 'incredible spikes" in coronavirus cases in Navajo Nation, warning that the virus could "wipe out" some tribal nations, according to a recording of a call between Trump and the nation's governors obtained by ABC News.

"I'm very worried, Mr. President," Governor Lujan Grisham said, as she followed up on a request she made to the Department of Defense last Wednesday for a 248-bed U.S. Army combat support hospital (CSH) in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Grisham told Trump she had not yet received a response.

"We're seeing incredible spikes in the Navajo Nation, and this is going to be an issue where we're going to have to figure that out and think about maybe testing and surveillance opportunities," Grisham said.

"The rate of infection, at least on the New Mexico side — although we've got several Arizona residents in our hospitals — we're seeing a much higher hospital rate, a much younger hospital rate, a much quicker go-right-to-the-vent rate for this population. And we're seeing doubling in every day-and-a-half," she said.

And he then showed some empathy......................right........................let's see how that last................not long................


"We're gonna get you that hospital as quickly as we can," Trump said, while directing others in the Situation Room to look into the problem and rush work on the hospital. "Boy, that’s too bad for the Navajo nation – I've been hearing that."

Too bad for the Navajo Nation..........................maybe this nimrod should look at the virus history and the tribes in this country.......................maybe this asshole can look up the history of smallpox and blankets, on how the white would trade smallpox blankets to kill the Natives, that is a fucking fact.............what an asshole.............

6. I do believe that's the closest thing to empathy you'll ever see in this guy.

You can measure the distance between him and empathy in light years.
Kinda of makes you sick, doesn't it.

7. motherfucking limbaugh has led the denial. the loudest radio station in NM is

a limbaugh station that blew the delay and denial all over the state since it started

amazing thing is UNM broadcasts sport on it and some of the indian casinos advertise on 770 kkob

all these stations need to start losing their advertisers on a major scale

8. To formally lodge her alarm to this prez and record his weak response is important for the record

of his treatment of the nation's blue state governors.

Wrong masks for blue Illinois.

Broken ventilators for blue California.

No calls or complaints from red state governors. Not one.

Can't prove it yet, but we can bet there is political racketeering going on.

11. The IHS Hospital is in Albuquerque. Not sure what's in AZ, the rez

is in both states. People will have to be flown in.

People here have long memories and both the Hispanos and the tribes were clobbered a lot harder by the 1918 flu and everybody's afraid history will repeat itself.

I sincerely hope not.
