One thing the military excels at is managing dead bodies, grim but true.

Really hope there are some Covid19 deniers in the guard unit that deploys. A few days of hauling bodies should change their mind.

if someone is still denying covid at this point there isn't anything that will change their mind. The are not rational people and dealing with them rationally wont work.

This. As another article mentioned. Those Trumpers in the IC on their deathbeds are still denying that Covid exists. Facepalm.

"I visited every nook and cranny of the camp because I felt it my duty to be in a position from then on to testify at first hand about these things in case there ever grew up at home the belief or assumption that 'the stories of Nazi brutality were just propaganda.' Some members of the visiting party were unable to through the ordeal. I not only did so but as soon as I returned to Patton's headquarters that evening I sent communications to both Washington and London, urging the two governments to send instantly to Germany a random group of newspaper editors and representative groups from the national legislatures. I felt that the evidence should be immediately placed before the American and British publics in a fashion that would leave no room for cynical doubt."

59 Days, I believe, would have to check the calendar to know for sure.

Or if you prefer, at least another 59,000 dead.  Depends if you want to count the passage of time in revolutions around the sun or by how high the stack of bodies is at any moment.

We are long past that point.  Trump and his media buffoons have spent so much energy convincing the stupids that COVID will go away, is fake, is just the flu, can be cured with bleach, vaccine is imminent that they will deny it kills people even as their GOP pizza moguls die from it.
 
2020-11-22 12:22:26 PM  
Trump's honorary Ph.D's coming through - the bodies really are getting piled higher & deeper!

Imagine what his death toll's gonna be by the time Biden takes office. He's gonna make Obama, Dubya, Clinton, Bush, even Reagan look like pikers - he'll be mocking their rookie numbers and announcing that Ivanka's for closers, as he's managed to kill more Americans through his ignorance & malice than any of them...

Yep, he's one for the history books, alright.

It'll be mostly "they're not real dead bodies" with a smattery of some other delusional fantasy.

Maybe NYC is being humane because those 650 bodies are unclaimed, families cannot be located, but they are trying to find them before they toss them in a potters fields.

fark you.

They're already helping

Shocker, one of the most densely populated areas on the planet is vulnerable to an airborne respiratory virus especially when the federal government diverts help from them even though they provide the most tax money out of any state to it.

Yep. Trump's done his level best to ensure that Biden can't steal his thunder. No intelligence, no CTF access, a third of Americans either hostile or apathetic to what needs to be done, and a whole raft of misinformation and lies, floated by every goddamned GOP sympathizer and seditionist that they could find over the last year.

It's not going to magically go away when Biden shows up in January, or if a vaccine shows up in April (because you won't be getting it - we're not first in line, as the EU's got a lock on 200 million doses with a 100-million-dose option, while we have a lock on 100 million doses with a 500-million-dose option, and we're paying more for it.)

June, 2021, at a minimum, but more likely the end of 2021 before we can really start to get a handle on the situation.

This is Trump's final "fark you." He'll do here what the Dubya administration did in 2008 - do as much damage as they can on the way out, so that the GOP can spend the next four years pretending that they had nothing to do with it while they berate the incoming administration for not fixing everything immediately.

This is happening because of Republican incompetency.  If you support Republicans, some portion of these deaths are on your hands.

All those anti maskers/covid deniers/covid protesters should be rounded up and chained in hospital morgues all over the country handling bodies for a week with no PPE, see how they like it.

Just like Obama's response to Katrina.

/In 2019 (actually early  2020) I said that it would take a war for Trump to be worst president ever
//the worst response to the worst pandemic in 100 years (to the year) probably pushed him over
///probably drummed up civil war more than James Buchanan (who *got* his Civil War).

I don't what news channel you watch but every network, and all but Fox on cable, have done nothing but cover the death bomb that is COViD since this thing started.

I love when libs claim that the media is somehow defending Trump. Have you watched the news at all since the election? Unless Savannah literally gives Joe s handy on air, I don't know how much more in love Biden the networks could be.

El Paso is overwhelmingly Democratic with Hispanics only accounting for over 82% of the population. Its leadership and voting record is solid Blue. El Paso had plenty of time to prepare for what was coming as it was far more insulated than Harris County, Bexar County, Dalls/Ft. Worth, and Austin. You want to blame someone? Blame those in charge of the local government which is responsible for its own city and surrounding counties.

Because these are infectious dead bodies

They're setting up freezer trucks nationwide.

Thanks to global warming we can't even stack corpses outside.
