CNN commentator Chris Cuomo admonished President Trump for repeatedly calling the coronavirus "the Chinese virus." “Calling it the Chinese virus or the Wuhan virus or the Kung Flu. Listen, you may think it's clever, but it's hurting,” Cuomo said on his nightly show on Wednesday. “The idea, ‘Well, it did come from China.’ Then why doesn't Fauci and other top health officials, why don’t they call it that? You know why? Because it could have come from anywhere.” The virus, which has sparked a global pandemic, is believed to have originated in an animal market in Wuhan, China. Trump has said he uses the phrase "Chinese virus" for accuracy purposes.


Sorry, Fredo! Wuhan Flu doesn't care about political correctness or hurt feelings. The virus originated in China, not anywhere else. And whining about semantics won't change that!!

Okay, since it could have come from anywhere, let's call it the Cuomo virus.

Kung flu...I vote for that one. What do these liberals do when they get home at night? They probably buy hand lotion by the gallon and just wring their hands till they get tired and go to sleep.

This could have been started in any country that allows filthy and disgusting live animal markets which allow human to animal virus transfer. If the shoe fits...

And there are already articles out there about Wuhan lab employees who (against the rules) slip out infected lab animals to the market and sell them for extra money. Call a spade a spade! I despise the MSM!

Yup, it could've come from anywhere, but it didn't; it came from China, thus the name, Fredo. Frankly, I think we should call it The ChiComm Virus for complete accuracy.

THIS is what the media is investing their reputations in? These people must enjoy looking like idiots. At the moment, Trump OWNS the public stage in dealin with this emergency. They MUST give it to him. He is appearing presidential and is surrounded by experts and people who appreciate the competent way he is dealing with the Chinese virus, even dem governors. Meanwhile some reporters are completing to be the dumbest on air and in follow up "analysis". They also choose to air panicked doctors posting on social media their concerns about the lack of supplies and slowness of tests. You have to wonder if these doctors are talking to people who can actually work with them to resolve the problem or just whining about it? The government already KNOWS these shortages and problems exist and production has ramped up significantly. Given a couple weeks, sufficient supplies will be available. The positive turnaround is largely due to targeted government actions and cutting of red tape, all the right things to do. No, we weren't completely ready for a pandemic. I would venture that no one is ever fully prepared for the worst events life has to offer. You always have to play catch up when they happen. The reality is, it would be impossible to be prepared for all possible bad events. The efforts and costs to be ready for things that may never happen in our lifetime are prohibitive. We do the best we can. Meanwhile, we are all trying to keep the Chinese virus in abeyance by staying at home as much as possible and practicing high levels of sanitation. Right now, that's the best we can do.

Do they really think people are so stupid they don't know where this disease (and most other nasty flu-like diseases) came from? China is one of the most overcrowded, polluted and filthy countries in the world. Hygiene is an alien concept to them. I've been there and know of what I speak.

Chris Cuomo and that Lemon on CNN are the most useless talking heads on TV. I only read about what they say because I can't watch them without getting a headache. They do not seem bright enough to give the news accurately. All they do is try to destroy Pres. Trump who is waaaay smarter than either one of them.

Sorry Chris...Chinese virus is accurate and very clear. You are the 'hater' for calling it anything different and trying to attribute that to someone else. true being clear and accurate which is what news is supposed to be. Estimates haveen all over the chart, but the delay of information by the Chinese Govt has cost many lives Worldwide, and the Economic hardship Worldwide that has resulted from their reluctance to be forthright (whatever their reasons) is staggering. In the end, this will also cost lives and seriously affect a significant swath of people on the entire planet. But, miserable make this an issue you can use to attack someone or something you don't like. I have no use for you. If there is a God... and I believe there is...he/she/it is watching YOU!

Just as Chris Cuomo is of Italian origin because his ancestors came from Italy, the Chinese corona virus is of Chinese origin because it was created and came from China. Neither of those two designated labels are of racist intent because they are completely factual.

President Trump said American businesses are actively stepping to help combat the coronavirus by changing their factories over to making goods and equipment needed by health care workers. On Friday, President Donald Trump announced that he invoked the Korean War-era Defense Production Act, which allows the government to marshal the private sector to fight the COVID-19 pandemic. But on Saturday, Trump said he has not had to use those powers because so many companies are voluntarily repurposing their facilities. “We have so many companies making so many products,” Trump said. “We have the act to use in case we need it,

It’s a strange time. And, to me, it’s an interesting time. We’re living in a situation we’ve never before seen, one we likely (or, hopefully) will never see again. The world’s operating differently, and with that change comes opportunity — to live differently, and also, in some ways, to do better. Amid the challenges — as in times past — if you want to see the heart of America, look at her in moments of crisis. When there’s a need, we come together. And some people are using the current state of quarantine, social distancing, and closures to help others.

During his conference call on the coronavirus on Friday, former Vice President Joe Biden told his listeners that President Trump was not being the leader that we need during this unpredictable outbreak. [Tweet] The Trump campaign was quick to respond and remind Biden about the Obama administration's lackluster leadership during the Swine flu outbreak. “The only thing Joe Biden knows about handling a public health crisis is that the Obama White House had to apologize for his remarks that set off a panic during the swine flu outbreak in 2009," said Tim Murtaugh, Trump 2020 communications director.

The Whole of America   On March 13, President Trump declared a “whole of America approach” to fighting the coronavirus. And on March 17, he reinforced that point, tweeting, “The world is at war with a hidden enemy. WE WILL WIN!” And at his press conference on March 18, the self-described “wartime president” emphasized, “We’re going to win, we’re going to come back.” Thus we can see, the president is determined to set a tone of militant activist optimism; he pledged a stronger healthcare system in the future, but before we get there, he added, “We have to win the war first.”

Easter, the most important feast in Christianity, falls on April 12 this year. In the Catholic Church, where the day is preceded by Holy Week, which includes a series of special masses and other services, several dioceses are already canceling the public celebration of those events. Catholic bishops in Ohio on Monday decided to cancel all public Easter masses in the state, a decision made in keeping with Republican Gov.

Joe Biden reached a new and heady milestone when he shellacked Bernie Sanders in Florida, Illinois and Arizona to become the de facto Democratic nominee for president. But there was no soaring speech to acknowledge the moment. He never took the stage amid a sea of Biden signs or before an adoring crowd on national television. Biden was instead stuck in a makeshift studio in his Delaware home, webcasting his remarks with a low-quality personal computer camera against a straight-out-of-YouTube black backdrop and two American flags. He warned about the coronavirus contagion. He offered an olive branch to Bernie Sanders. Then, despite two consecutive weeks of smashing victories,

Depending on their situation, they should be eligible to have their mortgage payments reduced or suspended for up to 12 months. Federal regulators, through the mortgage giants Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, are ordering lenders to offer homeowners flexibility. The move covers about half of all home loans in the U.S. — those guaranteed by Fannie and Freddie. But regulators expect that the entire mortgage industry will quickly adopt a similar policy. Under the plan, people who have suffered a loss of income can qualify

The pressure only increased after Trump’s Friday briefing.The Atlantic’s James Fallows believes the attention-starved Trump is turning the press conferences into “virtual campaign” rallies and Trump would actually lose interest in showing up if the media did not cover the briefings live.“Also, as a practical matter, if the briefings were no longer covered live, Trump would lose interest in attending himself,” Fallows argues.
