The other point that is never written about is that the President (no matter who he is) must project a sense of OPTIMISM. The combination of forced unemployment, forced separation, restriction of normal activities is certainly causes millions to fall into fits of depressions. The LAST thing we need is a President saying, "this thing is going to last YEARS..."

The "journalists" who bad-mouthed the President for saying that we should start coming out by Easter should be shot. In public. Bad mouthing him for EXPRESSING A HOPE???

How low can you go?
Because it’s confusing and misleading. People are getting mixed messages. Trump says everything is going great. Five minutes later we hear that cases are accelerating from the CDC.
So he should say we are all going to die and should form Mongolian hordes on horseback to run across the plains to rape and pillage?
Obviously that’s exactly what I’m saying.

Good lord. Y’all are taking this really hard.
aint that the truth.
blob supporters are funny when they aren’t homicidal
You left wingers are full of shit.

You can't keep your stories straight and you root for the end of America.

Fuck you.

It's already been shown that New York is in trouble because of it's leaders....not Trump.
And the thing is, as a New Yorker, I'm more concerned about what DiBlasio does going forward that his idiocy a month ago when he tweeted people should continue as normal. He was acting on the information he had, and he misjudged the severity of the situation.

Cuomo has been doing OK so far, but he still can't avoid taking jabs at the feds when he should be concerned about what he is doing with the State resources he has.
The death rate has started to drop (just two data points).

Rate of case increase seems to be have gone flat.

I hope you guys are seeing a corner to turn.
Since the hard restrictions started a week or so ago, and people started self isolating two weeks ago, with a 5-10 day incubation period its what you would expect from the isolation protocols.

What we need to do is start random testing, to get an idea of how much of the population has had mild cases, and are immune to getting it again.

Glad to see you admit Trump isn’t a leader.
Clearly you have a disease that makes you unable to comprehend.
Is Trump a leader in your mind?
Yes he is.

Not the greatest....but he's doing a good job here.
If he’s doing a good job, then why is New York in trouble?
Kinda missed the thread out that that shows how New York's leadership failed the state on several fronts.

Encouraging people to ignore the virus and party on.

When they finally caught on and told people to stay home.....well being left wingers...they kept partying.

You get what you vote for.
Was Trump telling people to stay home at that time?

At that point he was supposed to tell the whole country to stay home?

At that point the clusters were in Washington, NYC, and other large cities, with their own Departments of Health at the local and State levels.

Everyone was.

This was the task force that went after the spring breakers telling them they could fuck the whole effort if they didn't get off the beaches and go home.

it is absolutely amazing to me that prominent Democrats and their sycophants in the dishonest and corrupt media can't see it
Please stop lying about the Dem's position. Everyone understands it isn't sustainable. It's just too early to roll back social distancing.

Social distancing can’t last forever. Here’s what should come next.
Scientists are explaining the moonshot effort needed to end social distancing and this pandemic. Will leaders listen?

Better screening and testing for individuals traveling from abroad.

It’s odd that people criticize New Yorkers for not taking it seriously when Trump was telling them there was nothing to worry about and it was totally under control.

Actually, President Trump got on TV and advised ALL citizens to wash their hands, maintain distance, be sanitary.

Yet, in Liberal jurisdictions like New York City they heard their President and said" he 's not my president, I do what I please, f' Trump" and have refused to wash their hand and take other preventative matters. That's why NYC has a record number of case while more moderate jurisdictions like Venango and Cameron County in Pennsylvania have zero.

Has your selective memory wiped out the weeks and weeks Trump was downplaying the oncoming crisis?

The term "critic" is too kind. Democrats have become so incoherent that any improvement in the current crisis angers them. They forget that the blue state of NY defended China and accused people of racism in the beginning of the crisis if they protected themselves. Cuomo's rants are designed to cover up the democrat mistakes and mismanagement in the beginning of the crisis.

The last time I saw a panic like this, two radio shock jocks said that someone had put H2O in the water supply and the city was hiding it. Everyone who drank water with H2O in it died.
H20 is a can be a deadly chemcal.

Are we supposed to believe that guidance from Trump can only be delivered by blanket national orders?

Obviously not.

New York demonstrates how ineffective travel restrictions are.

Considering the numbers presented by the seasonal flu and those presented by the Wuhan virus, our current madness over the latter is in no way justified.
The health professionals insisted that it had to be done

trump resisted the lockdown and the panic we have now but the public is gripped by fear
The criminal professionals fiefdom has let the made up crime criminals out pf jail for some reason and will end up releasing more.

Everybody knows that. No one intends the lockdown to continue indefinitely.
Everyone understands that until it happens, then the libs are going to become unglued because Trump did it.
It’s hard to tell what Trump is and isn’t doing. He speaks so vaguely it’s really quite confusing what is just his “hope” versus what is actually being done versus what he thinks is being done.
