What he's saying is that Mayor LaToya is helpless, and couldn't be expected to reach out to the CDC - or even her own Department of Public Health - and therefore it's everyone else's fault for not calling HER and telling her how to do her job.By the time of Mardi Gras cases in Washington State, New York City and California was reported and social distancing was already recommended, so are you claiming the Mayor of New Orleans did not know about any of this and ignored CDC recommendations?You’re right. I should have been more precise. The mayor would have the authority but they had no advice or information that would lead them to make that call.I think you're utterly clueless about who has the authority to do what. The CDC does not have the authority to shut down Mardi Gras or any other event. That authority belongs to the government with the legal jurisdiction; in the case of Mardi Gras, that would be the city government of New Orleans, headed by the mayor.I think it’s the job of the CDC to do so. A mayor could hardly be expected to understand what measures are necessary on their own. They simply lack the expertise and information to do so.True. And it also wasn't Trump's job to shut down individual city events. That's what cities have mayors for.Had he told the Mayors in Democrat Cities to shut down Chinese New Year or Mardi Gras the media would have attacked him and scream he was overreacting!I believe several Democrats in NY, including the head of public health in NYC, were also encouraging people to go out, have fun, attend parades . . . and I distinctly recall the Democrat mayor of New Orleans encouraging people to attend Mardi Gras, and later blaming Trump for it not being shut down because he didn't "call her and tell her" to do so.1. We were talking about social distancing as early as late January and Early Feburary and if you lie and say we were not then click the links I provided because the CDC was issuing warnings already and guidelines back then!Pelosi visited Chinatown in late Feb, a point at which there were a dozen cases in the US and a few dozen cases that had been repatriated.What part of "social distancing" was confusing to you? Or "hypocrisy", for that matter? That shriveled twat wants to gas away about how Trump is responsible for deaths because he didn't take this seriously soon enough, and at the exact same time, SHE was encouraging people to gather in huge, packed crowds and blowing off the notion of spreading the infection? And now YOU, her faithful lapdog, want to excoriate Trump but act all bewildered at the idea of doing the same to her?So what does Pelosi talking to people going down to Chinatown have to do with anything?And that i why it is called the China Virus and not the China town Virus
I'm not discounting the possibility that you really are that fucking stupid, but somehow, I think you're actually just being dishonest in this case.
It was a point in time when the CDC was not recommending social distancing. It was a point in time during which testing for COVID was minimal. It was a point in time during which Trump’s administration claimed that the county was pretty well air tight because of his travel restrictions which were obviously inadequate.
Furhtermore, you can’t escape the fact that the others poster leveled this criticism due to the fact that Chinatown was involved, which has an obvious racial implication.
What you failed to do was discuss the issue with any specificity (what does Pelosi fault Trump for doing specifically) and instead chose to attack me personally.
2. My mentioning of New York Chinatown had to do with an idiot name Bill de Bozo of New York that is their Mayor and how he was trying to tell the people of New York it was safe to go to Chinatown during Chinese New Year when people from China were coming in as of late January and possible Carrier of the Coronavirus 19 which I gladly call Kung Flu Pandemic seeing you want to call it Trump plague!
It was de Bozo as of late January to early February telling the residents of his city to Wash their hands, SOCIAL DISTANCING, get a flu shot and if ill stay home!
3. Facts hurt you and your argument saying Trump did nothing to stop the spread when as of early January the CDC was offered to assist China Government in containing the virus and they ( China Government ) refused the assistance, so who is to blame?
You will scream " Trump " and yet facts say you are retarded as hell by doing so!
Ebola isn’t likely to lead to a widespread quarantine but it certainly raises interesting constitutional questionstime.com
Also, this whole "a mayor can't understand on her own (fixed the grammar for you)" line is a straw man, because no one suggested she should do it on her own. The CDC's primary purpose is advisory, to provide necessary public health information to those who need it, which includes city governments. And that's aside from the fact that New Orleans has a Public Health Department, whose primary job is advising the city government on public health concerns. Where were they? Did Mayor LaToya talk to her Director of Public Health, or whatever the title is? Did either of them contact the CDC? Are they both too damned dumb to do the simple math of "infectious disease + large gathering of people = maybe not a good idea", as you seem to suggest is not only the case, but a perfectly acceptable state of being?
The CDC would be best in position to know if that were necessary but made no such determination. Recommendations to avoid gatherings didn’t come out for about 2 weeks.
The mayor of New Orleans would not have sufficient information at that time (given the only known cases were identified in travelers from China) and if I’m remembering correctly, zero of those cases were in Louisiana.
