Well it was a nice life, everyone start making your wills. God-King Trump has decided we shall die.

I applaud the author for the use of "lickspittle"

Nice to see the classics staying fresh and timely

How much money went to Boeing in the bailout. 10% of that should probably cover it

Boeing won't miss it

I'm nearly speechless.

I hope that Priorities USA Action never takes down that ad.  Rather, they need to add his comments here to it.

It sounds to me like Trump is currently taking full responsibility for all future ventilator shortages.

Apparently saving the lives of tens of thousands of Americans could cost as much as half a dozen F-35s.  We have to prioritize here.

Dr. Deborah Birx, the White House coronavirus response coordinator, said earlier on Thursday she was told that New York had enough ventilators to meet current needs. While there may be shortages in urban areas like New York City, Birx said, there are other parts of the state "that have lots of ventilators and other parts of New York state that don't have any infections right now."

Um...

A lot of people are going to die because of what Donald Trump believes.

Going to?  Tell that to Puerto Rico.

Coordinated effort to blame things entirely on blue state governors. Cuomo has been entirely too competent.

You know it's funny they recently decided people should just die too. And knew in advance. Now I'm starting to get the Boeing bailout.

Pity The American Conservative couldn't bring themselves to endorse Hillary, back when it might have mattered.

Too little, too late....but welcome to the party.

Trump is half right.

We don't need 30,000 - 40,000 ventilators.

We need 1,000,000

"Naturally, lickspittle Hannity didn't challenge him."

When you've lost The American Conservative...

He's got his.  Just in case.  Top of the line.  Two SS guys guard it.

Instead of covering his bullshiat Trump rallies, interview Cuomo and actual doctors/nurses that are actively dealing with Coronavirus patients. Tell Prethident Pissy Baby to go fark himself to death with a rusty spork.

Start saving lives instead of being an accessory to their unnecessary deaths.

This is the man on a white horse, the man wise to (((globalist))) tricks, the re-incarnation of Richard Nixon that you, Pat Buchanan and the rest of the boys at AmConMag thought you wanted. Own it.

Or at least admit, finally, that nobody in his right mind ought to vote to re-elect Donald Trump---the Israel question be damned.

Soooooo....the car manufacturers who jumped through their asses to develop a process and a respirator will not only not get any compensation; but they won't even get to see if their products work?

Fark republicans will defend this.

Nothing gets a christian happier than knowing they contributed to the death of thousands.  I saw them dancing in the streets when Iraqis were killed because a born again christian thought it would be funny.
 
2020-03-27 10:28:27 AM  
Is it me? Or is Trump becoming more of a clear and present threat to the country with every single passing day.

/Oh, but we love him for some completely inscrutable reason.

The company I work for makes ventilators. This week we figured out how to increase production by 2500%.
 
2020-03-27 10:28:35 AM  
Not angry enough about this today? Try this article next.

At the center of the discussion about how to ramp up the production of ventilators is Jared Kushner, the president's son-in-law and a senior White House aide, who has told people that he was called in two weeks ago by Vice President Mike Pence to produce more coronavirus test kits and who has now turned his attention to ventilators.

He has been directing officials at FEMA in the effort. Two officials said the suggestion to wait on the General Motors offer came from Col. Patrick Work, who is working at FEMA. Some government officials expressed concern about the possibility of ordering too many ventilators, leaving them with an expensive surplus.

Diogenes: I'm nearly speechless.

I hope that Priorities USA Action never takes down that ad.  Rather, they need to add his comments here to it.


For those who did not RTFA: "Tonight on Sean Hannity's show, President Trump said (just past the 25:40 point) that people are exaggerating the number of ventilators needed in this crisis. "I don't believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators," said the president."

That should bury Trump. We are about to see scenes of critical patients in hallways and waiting rooms and tents.

But I am not getting my hopes up. Trump's campaign announcement in 2015 about Mexican drug rapists invaders should have buried him.

The whole point of a unified federal response is to be able to SURGE resources, materiel, and personnel where they are most needed when they are most needed.

So by all means: surge them to NYC now, then when the peak is over surge them to the next place.  and the next.  and the next.

For farks sake people, if my 11-year old son understands the point of "everyone shoot at that guy!," concentration of force, focus fire, on-demand resource allocation, or whatever the hell you want to call it, SOMEONE in this administration should...

right?!

I think we may be getting it right this time. Like don't have an emergency that requires federal response for instance.

Why does President Trump want to keep unemployed Americans out of work when they could be building ventilators?

It will be a brutal ad that will drive Americans to the polls.

Can you tell how?  That sort of thing should be disclosed for the public good. If you can do it, maybe others can as well.

Oh no...having too many lifesaving ventilators on hand is horrible 😱. What if it comes back even worse in the fall and we were too busy worrying about a farking surplus 😱.


Fark off and die GOP.

UPDATE:
NOW: A major hospital in the Midwest has reached its limit on ventilators minutes ago.
They are handing out forms saying that only those "with the best chance of survival" will get care. Others will be getting pain medication.

/The Death Panels have finally arrived.
