NEW – from @alexismadrigal and me

weird how when U.S. testing started ramping up, suddenly coronavirus cases started appearing all over the country

Remember when the President of the United States was capable of getting through a major national crisis without being such a sick, sick, sick black hole of insecurity and neediness that he required these grotesque sideshows of self-abasement? https://t.co/edqTMSTjfQ

Trump at the CDC: "As of the time I left the plane with you, we had 240 cases, that's at least what was on a very fine network known as Fox News. I know you love it. But that's what I happened to be watching, and how was the show last night? Did it get good ratings by the way?"

Ok, the CDC appearance was the most disturbing one yet from Trump. He literally said experts were telling him to take sick Americans off a cruise ship but he doesn't want to do it because it WILL MAKE THE NUMBERS GO UP and it "wasn't our fault." Holy Jesus.

I wish just one person standing there would yell out, “I can’t do this anymore! This guy is crazy, it’s obvious, it’s dangerous, it’s not funny.” https://t.co/ZP0ALgniql

..To add this, @CDCDirector: My father, who worked for many years as an infectious disease specialist at @CDCgov on measles (see below photo credit) would be calling for your termination for refusing to focus on a public health crisis, rather than the issue of managing a toddler. https://t.co/DQCCrAOT5i pic.twitter.com/nRRi4E36Af

Question: Have you considered not having campaign rallies?
Trump: No I haven’t… We had tens of thousands of people standing outside the arena
Question: Is there a risk that there’s that many people so close together
Trump: It doesn’t bother me at all pic.twitter.com/ZaMc6ayK4e

This presidency is like if a small town made a joke out of electing a dog who routinely got into trash mayor and then a major disaster hit and for some reason everyone just expected the dog to make decisions.

The father of a Parkland shooting victim called out a GOP lawmaker after he told Democrats to "come and take" his AR-15 (while holding it) if they want to ban the weapons.
"My daughter died from a single AR 15 bullet."

The new coronavirus is now in at least 75 countries, the World Health Organization says. More than 94,000 cases have been confirmed worldwide.
Despite that growth, the WHO director-general says: "We can push this virus back."https://t.co/M6X5yy7cRj

To put it in perspective: 3,000 people worldwide have died from the new #coronavirus, a death toll worse than SARS and MERS combined. Here's some context: in the U.S. alone, 18,000 people have already died from flu this season, which began in October. https://t.co/VER4caemPk

What an image. Two huffing old blokes from the Ulster Unionist Party trying to be as right-wing as the DUP – as young liberal Protestants flock to the Alliance Party.
Irrelevant. Outdated. Outplayed. https://t.co/izydNjntgz
