Hard pass.

You know it will just be an hour of him downplaying the virus while he has Dear Leader's mushroom in his mouth.

When you say "Happening Now," CNN, the first thing I better see is the live event, not a goddamned ad for air fresheners.
 
2020-07-07 1:20:03 PM  
How quickly will he blame protesters?

Is that an abstinence education program? Because aside from turquoise shirt the rest are all lying.

I think I'd rather see that than Desantis talk.
 
2020-07-07 1:20:58 PM  
Yeah - ask Florida how that's going. Across the state, their ICUs are full with zero beds available, period. Doesn't matter if it's COVID-19 or a car wreck.

I'm going with:

*random stammering"

MAGA! CHINA VIRUS!


*authentic Florida gibberish*

LIBRULS! CREAM CHEESE!

*whargarbl*

VEGAN DIETS! IMMIGRANTS!

...

VOTE REPUBLICAN!

Yeah, there is that - I'm listening to this dickhead talk about "levers" where he should be providing details.
 
2020-07-07 1:22:06 PM  
Mostly blaming Da Yutes.  Yeah bro that'll do it, Gen-Z parties are to blame, not an absolutely DAVID LYNCH BRAIN INJURY LEVEL RESPONSE.

Christ, what an asshole.

Azar and Birx and DeVos telling everyone schools can reopen because even little kids know to wash their hands now.

We. Are. farked.

Having watched a couple of these recently, I'll predict: Excuse, attempt to downplay, another excuse, snide veiled comment about Cuomo's nursing home fark up, veiled comment about the protests, another excuse, refusal to mandate masks, appeal to personal responsibility, ends with a claim that the worst is behind us.

What do I win?
 
2020-07-07 1:23:59 PM  
His world consists of levers and switches, none of which work, apparently.

This idiot didn't "spread this out," and he didn't "flatten" shiat - he doesn't understand that his upward slope would intimidate the climber on the Price is Right, FFS.

Damn it. I forgot the "blame the young" gambit.
 
2020-07-07 1:25:02 PM  
Yes, per capita, there's a slightly better outcome - only 10% of those who had an outcome, had an outcome that resulted in death.

Does the term, "decimation," mean anything to you, DeSantis?

I've only seen clips of his press conferences from local newscasts in Florida and even I can tell you're spot on.

He really is that sad and predictable.
 
2020-07-07 1:25:53 PM  
Wow. He thinks they're going to "get over this wave."
 
2020-07-07 1:26:21 PM  
And they're done. No more questions, he's decided to flee after spewing unbelievable bullshiat.

So, a great experiment where we see what happens when the stupid and jingoistic get into power. I'm certain that a roach fart has more mental power than this idiot.

So there were a bunch of corona positive people in that building. The governor didn't tell reporters ahead of time AND HE WASNT WEARING A MASK!

Just in:  Truth serum, administered to politicians just before a TV event, will aid immensely in combating this killer. It would also make follow up questions much more fun to watch.

Nah. The climber doesn't have to worry about falling off the edge of Florida's upward slope.

Azar has a nifty little website where you can share 'ideas' with him.

I may have mentioned to him that he needed to find a sharp object and draw on his wrist until he felt sleepy.

Will he talk about how he defunded virtual schools a couple of weeks ago and how all schools need to reopen and just accept death?

Yeah, he sucks so badly that it's hard to express how much he sucks.

Oh, and btw, he's totally running for president in 2024. That's why he's refusing to mandate masks. He knows it would be a death sentence in the GOP primaries.

Although the governor does make a strong case that all is well, and I've always wanted to go....

Someone needs to tell this clown that looks like a poorly drawn Flintstones character that his flawless plan isn't going so well. The majority of stupid in this state are the die hard Trumpers looking to make their dear leader proud by being the biggest arsehole in the room.  Go to a Walmart, 95% aren't wearing masks, aren't distancing. I've met a few in my profession that explain hey are in healthcare and, guess what-not going to wear a mask. I've been lectured how they don't work, and as I'm wearing one they wonder how I breathe. FFS, it's not perfect but it reduces the rate of transmission.  Thanks GOP, for politicizing the farking plague.
 
2020-07-07 1:43:58 PM  
So he is refusing to walk back anything. When schools open and people start dropping like flies and bodies are piling up in the streets behind hospitals then what? Florida might want to consider a recall election or whatever their method of removing a governor is. Shiat is gonna get real bad, real soon.

I  had to go to bar a few weeks ago in the evening because the owner is a pal and his computer system went down.

I  mask up and hit the bar.

Standing room only.  I am the only one in a mask.

It looked like Dirty Dancing mixed with a Geritol commercial.

What are their positions in healthcare? Janitorial staff? Caterers? Insurance processors?

If you live in Florida, god speed farkers. I would recommend evacuating out of Florida at this point and heading somewhere out west that's very isolated.

I actually suspect this will be the ultimate tipping point, if massive numbers of people see the high spikes in Florida and actively avoid all those tourist attractions, I think there will be a number of CEO's that will actively participate in figuratively hanging him from a tree

Only reason he's reacted as much as they did is because the NBA hinted at possibly abandoning their plans in Orlando.

You're right, nothing will happen until it hits their pocketbooks.
