Internet ridicules Trump surgeon general for president is 'healthier than I am' claim:

‘He must be really ill then’

Published 16 mins ago on March 8, 2020
By Tom Boggioni

Surgeon General Jerome Adams was buried under a withering blanket of derision on Sunday morning after telling CNN’s Jake Tapper, “The president, he sleeps less than I do and he’s healthier than I am.”

Adams’ comment brought to mind Trump’s doctors previously praising his health with equally ridiculous claims.

Needless to say, the Internet remembered and Twitter regulars had a field day laughing at the doctor.

'I don't want to': Ben Carson panics America by refusing to reveal 'plan' for cruise ship patients

Published 5 mins ago on March 8, 2020
By David Edwards

A Sunday interview with Housing and Urban Development Secretary Ben Carson may have done more harm than good when it comes to assuring Americans that the Trump administration has the coronavirus under control.

In an interview with ABC’s George Stephanopoulos, Carson — who is a former neurosurgeon but not an infectious disease expert — compared COVID-19 to the common flu.

Stephanopoulos noted that the Grand Princess is scheduled to dock in Oakland this week with infected passengers.

“What plan is in place to deal with the 3,500 people onboard?” the ABC host asked.

Carson, however, declined to reveal the plan.

Empty chairs for MH17 victims outside Russia's Hague Embassy

WORLD NEWS MARCH 8, 2020 / 11:29 AM / UPDATED 19 MINUTES AGO

THE HAGUE (Reuters) - Rows of white chairs were placed in front of Russia’s embassy in The Hague on Sunday in a quiet protest by families of those who were shot down with Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, on the eve of the trial - in absentia - of four men accused of murder for their involvement.

MH17 was downed over rebel-held territory in eastern Ukraine in July 2014, by what international investigators say was a Russian missile sent to help Moscow-backed rebels fight Ukrainian government forces. All 298 people aboard died, including 196 Dutch citizens.

Russia, which has been held politically responsible by the Netherlands and Australia, denies any involvement.

“This is for me a very beautiful symbol for 298 people who perished. They are gone. My brother never returned,” said Piet Ploeg, whose older brother Alex died in the crash.

U.S. airport screeners, health workers plagued by fear and anger as coronavirus spreads

(Reuters) - As coronavirus cases exploded across the world, federal medical workers tasked with screening incoming passengers at U.S. airports grew alarmed: Many were working without the most effective masks to protect them from getting sick themselves.

Screeners with the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention asked their supervisors this week to change official protocols and require stronger masks, according to an internal document reviewed by Reuters. On Friday evening, they learned their worst fears were realized: Two screeners, both working at Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), had tested positive for the virus.

“Sad news,” a senior quarantine official at the CDC wrote in an email Friday evening to colleagues about the two workers. The email, reviewed by Reuters and not previously reported, said the two screeners will be quarantined until March 17. “Let us keep our colleagues at LAX in our thoughts.”

The news was not surprising to some CDC screeners.

“It was bound to happen,” said a veteran CDC medical official involved with screening who spoke on condition of anonymity. “They are assuring us we are safe. If we were safe, screeners would not be getting sick.”

Jeanine Pirro argues coronavirus may be less deadly than the flu in latest Fox News

conspiracy theory

Published 1 min ago on March 7, 2020
By Bob Brigham

Supporters of President Donald Trump continue to downplay the severity of the coronavirus epidemic as criticism grows over the White House’s bungled response.

Fox News personality Jeanine Pirro on Saturday argued that the flu could actually have a higher mortality rate than coronavirus if it were not for a vaccine.

Pirro’s claim came hours after it was revealed that an attendee at the right-wing Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) tested positive for COVID-19.

Elizabeth Warren releases moving video on what's next: 'Choose to fight only righteous fights'

By Bob Brigham

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) released a video on Saturday reflecting on her 2020 presidential bid.

“Choose to fight only righteous fights, because then when things get tough—and they will—you will know that there is only one option ahead of you: Nevertheless, you must persist,” Warren urged.

The video did not include an endorsement of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) or former Vice President Joe Biden.

“This fight, our fight, is not over. And our place in this fight has not ended. This fight goes on.

Mike Pompeo ridiculed as the 'Secretary of White Male Fragility'

Published 1 min ago on March 7, 2020
By Bob Brigham

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) received widespread praise during her 2020 presidential bid for how she worked to convince young girls that it was natural for a female to run for president.

Warren would tell the young girl that she is running for president “because that’s what girls do” — and would then ask for a pinky-swear that the lesson had been learned.

Secretary of State Mike Pence — who works for the 45th man to serve as president — on Saturday appeared to be mocking Warren’s lesson.

Republican Joni Ernst poll numbers plunge after voting against Trump's impeachment

Published 2 hours ago on March 7, 2020

By Bob Brigham


Sen. Joni Ernst’s poll numbers have sunk after she voted against convicting President Donald Trump following his impeachment trial.

“According to a new Des Moines Register/Mediacom Iowa Poll, Ernst’s approval rating has slipped from a high point of 57% in February 2019 to 47% today,” the newspaper reported Saturday.

Ernst is facing her first reelection as a senator in 2020 and her seat is widely considered one of the most likely to flip.

“The poll of 800 Iowa adults, which includes 667 likely voters, was conducted by Selzer & Co., March 2-5. The margin of error is plus or minus 3.5 percentage points for Iowa adults and plus or minus 3.8 percentage points for likely voters,” the newspaper reported. “Iowans have been polled 10 times since February 2015 about whether they approve or disapprove of the way Joni Ernst has handled her job as U.S. senator.”

The poll found only 41% of Iowa voters definitely planning to re-elect Ernst.
