Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) complained Sunday on MSNBC that President Donald Trump was putting “his most ardent supporters at risk” by not canceling his upcoming political rallies in light of the current coronavirus outbreak.Speier said, “I don’t think the president is capable of telling us the truth about the coronavirus. And I regret saying that. I think we have to rely on the scientists who are attempting to tell the truth even when they have to contradict the president. ”She added, “The fact that he is not willing to cancel his various rallies suggests

Thanks Jackie. When we want advice from dopey dems, we will ask for it. Don't hold your breath. Unlike dems, Republicans are allowed to make up their own minds about things. Trump isn't commanding people to come to his rallies. It's their choice.

Representative Jackie Speier (D-CA) must be more stupid than ordinary Democrats. People attend, or decline to attend ANY public event regardless of who is the featured speaker based upon a concept known as Free Will. My own peculiar no-no during any flu season, is the hand-holding in church services as act of fellowship. You might catch something. You might not. The Creator gave you a brain, so figure it out for yourself. It beats me how some back bench nobody in some far fetched jurisdiction assays to give this or any other President advice.

I admit to being concerned about such huge gatherings of people, praying that common sense practices will keep all safe. As for Jonestown Massacre survivor Speier, she has a history of stupid and inflammatory comments and, as such, is not the one to offer warnings or threats or whatever she's trying to say.

More than 70 percent of the cumulative number of people infected with the novel coronavirus in China have recovered, the World Health Organization stressed on Monday, saying that although the threat of a global pandemic looms large, most infections will end in recovery. The disease spread in Europe in particular continues to raise alarm, and in Italy, the worst-affected country outside of China, Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte announced late Monday that lockdown conditions earlier imposed in the hard-hit north will now be extended to the entire country.

I found myself thinking over the weekend that with Joe Biden now favored to win the nomination, it won’t be long before the press starts the quadrennial veepstakes ritual. And yesterday—boom!—it arrived in spades. The coronavirus may be spreading worldwide, Wall Street may be having a bloodbath, and Biden has yet to beat Bernie Sanders in Michigan and other key states. But nothing stops the VP speculation. There’s an added twist this year, which is the widespread expectation—and, in some quarters, demand—that the Democratic running mate will be a woman.

And sacré bleu, they’ve even shuttered the Louvre! Some of these reactions are understand­able, much of it pure hysteria. Meanwhile, the spread of the virus continues to slow. More than 18,000 Americans have died from this season’s generic flu so far, according to the latest data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Everyone remembers how Starbucks responded to allegations of systemic racism by closing down for a whole day of penance (which meant company-wide sensitivity training) followed by the decision that they would open all their locations—and most especially their bathrooms—to anyone without requiring a product purchase. In other words, it was the equivalent of putting out signs saying, “Loitering Welcome Here.” As they say on the Interwebs, you’ll never guess what happened next!

Jill Biden has a Doctor of Education degree from the University of Delaware, and she never lets the American people forget it. Mrs. Biden, wife of former Vice President Joe Biden, insists on being referred to as “Dr.” Biden. Her Twitter handle is @DrBiden. The press has largely acquiesced: Even though it has persistent trouble referring to actual pediatric neurosurgeon Ben Carson as “Dr.” Ben Carson, it is rare indeed to ever see a reference to Jill Biden without “Dr.” preceding her name. There’s nothing wrong with being proud of one’s educational achievements, of course. But Mrs. Biden’s unrelenting insistence on being called “Dr.” sometimes leads to confusion.
