He blames Trump and DeSantis, but I suspect that anyone who can be referred to as "his husband," or "his boyfriend" takes risks that the rest of us wouldn't consider.

If the complainer is a dentist, that means he is supposed to be a healthcare professional, so he and his mate should have known the risks of living an unhealthy lifestyle. Neither the President or the Governor are healthcare professionals, and when they issue guidelines those measures are the result of professional advise given to them before they issue their guidelines. What is known today by the President and the Governor from data surrounding the novel corona virus is a lot more then they knew a month or two months ago.

So many of the reports of covid-19 deaths go out of their way to bury the deceased persons risk factors. Some of the reports go way out of their way to give the impression the person had none (and, by implication, that YOU AND I are going to die if we catch it).

House Democrats want to include a climate-heavy infrastructure plan they outlined two months ago in a fourth coronavirus recovery package, even amid renewed Republican calls to reject anything resembling the "green new deal." Renewed interest in pushing a big-spending infrastructure plan has emerged in recent days, but could be overwhelmed by climate politics. The $760 billion package House Democrats unveiled in late January would heavily invest in rail and transit, as well as broadband, vehicle electrification infrastructure and climate resiliency. “Always focusing on emergency and mitigation we go to the next phase, which is of recovery,” said House Speaker Nancy

SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- The start of the month under a statewide stay-at-home order means many tenants and homeowners are scrambling to come up with the money for their rent and mortgage bills. On Wednesday, the Alliance of Californians for Community Empowerment declared a statewide rent strike, demanding that those payments be forgiven until people can return to work. With so many workers out of a job right now, a number of families do not know when their next paycheck is coming -- but the bills keep piling up.

A film showing a Wuhan based virus expert catching bats has fuelled a conspiracy theory that the disease was man-made and leaked from a lab.The seven-minute film features the centre's researcher Tian Junhua, who has visited dozens of caves in Hubei province to capture the flyin g mammals and take samples. Called "Youth in the Wild — Invisible Defender”, the short documentary has reawakened a wild conspiracy theory about the Covid-19 originating at the Wuhan Centre for Disease Control (CDC). Mr Tian works at the centre, which is not far from the animal market where officially the virus began.

WASHINGTON — U.S. Democratic candidate Joe Biden said his party's nominating convention should be held in August rather than July as the coronavirus health crisis upends life in the country. "I doubt whether the Democratic convention is going to be able to be held in mid-July," Biden told NBC's "The Tonight Show" late Wednesday. "I think it's going to have to move into August." The call for the delay by Biden, the current frontrunner in the Democratic contest to challenge Republican President Donald Trump in the November presidential election, is the latest sign the coronavirus outbreak is having a profound impact

Connecticut residents suddenly out of work as a result of the coronavirus pandemic might not see their first unemployment payment until the first week of May, Gov. Ned Lamont said Tuesday. Lamont reported no fresh new surge in claims for unemployment benefits, after the state saw roughly 100,000 file after his March 10 declaration of a public health emergency in response to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus. The Connecticut Department of Labor had reported a processing delay of two to three weeks due to staff being overwhelmed by processing applications while working remotely on outdated computer systems.

As the number of Americans impacted by the deadly coronavirus continues to climb, some voters looking for decisive action are turning to state leaders for guidance– chief among them, New York Governor Andrew Cuomo, whose daily press conferences and emphatic communication style has gradually captivated audiences across the nation over the last month. The spotlight on Cuomo comes at a critical time for Democrats looking for tangible leadership in the primary season. With former Vice President Joe Biden confined to offering somewhat limited communication from his home studio, Cuomo appears as a fiery option for Democrats who perceive President Trump's

Anthony Fauci, the medical professional at the eye of the coronavirus storm, has just come out and said the federal government should issue a national order for all Americans to stay home, stay inside, stay put. Is he nuts? Let’s rephrase: He’s nuts. On CNN, Fauci was asked by host Anderson Cooper, “Knowing the science, does it make sense to you that some states are still not issuing stay-at-home orders? I mean, whether there should be a federally mandated directive for that or not, I guess that’s more of a political question, but just scientifically, doesn’t everybody have to be on the same page with this stuff?” And Fauci said — yep.

We are living through an extraordinary and unprecedented time. It has required us to readjust our lives, our expectations and our plans. The business of politics is no exception. There's been a lot written over these last few days that this upending of normalcy is taking a toll on former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign. After all, in a non-COVID19 world, Biden would be having a great few weeks. Since his big win in South Carolina, Biden had been on a rout — winning big states and small, and building an insurmountable delegate lead. The political news media would be focused on his success.

ABC’s Nightline has returned to its old timeslot with a larger audience after late local news (instead of after Jimmy Kimmel Live). On Wednesday’s show, co-host Byron Pitts ended an interview with Vice President Mike Pence by asking him “not in a political way,” but whether he “talk[s] to God” about feeling remorse for Americans who have died “because of steps the federal government did not take soon enough.”So here we had a journalist ask the Vice President if he prays to the Lord with a heart of repentance for having been responsible for dead Americans. Surely, Chuck Todd would be proud of that question.

The decision of American Navy to relieve the captain who warned publicly of coronavirus on his nuclear-powered aircraft carrier strikes us as the right move. We get that it’s a sad setback for an officer in an incredible command. The minute we read the captain’s letter about the crisis on United States Ship Theodore Roosevelt, though, we saw it as a breach on a matter that should have been kept within the chain of command. That’s easy to say, we understand, for a newspaper whose landlubber of an editor can’t go to Jones Beach without getting seasick. We’ve followed the reports that Democrats on the House Armed Services Committee

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) certainly has a way of rewriting history. Pelosi appeared on MSNBC with Andrea Mitchell today with Mitchell about a Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) that impeachment may have slowed down the federal response to the Wuhan coronavirus. It’s a good question because Democrats have prioritized their quest to get the president any way they can since he was elected and they have never counted the cost of that effort. While Trump responded immediately in January, Democrats were completely focused on their continuing narrative against Trump. The virus to them was just another avenue to try to attack Trump,

On Thursday, The New York Times published a story suggesting that the South is uniquely dangerous for the spread of the coronavirus. Michael Barbaro, host of the Times podcast "The Daily," shared the map with the text, "In a word....The South." Yet both the NYT article and Barbaro's tweet ignored basic realities about American life that help explain the reasons behind the map — and show that the South is not a uniquely dangerous region during this crisis.
