    Trump canceled 'Predict' a a pandemic preparedness program last October. It didn't get much mainstream attention back then.

    Covid-19 is believed to be a zoonotic disease that passed from animals to humans.

    Thank god for president Trump and his forward thinking and unwavering support of science.

    Burying your head in the sand will not stop the virus, Mr. President.

    Watch, as soon as there's an American hotspot, Trump will order a quarantine and will prevent journalists from entering or reporting on the outbreak.

    I can't access FB from work but a friend posted a long diatribe about Trumps' cuts to the CDC, one of the things he said from memory is before the cuts, we had staff I something like 49 countries working for the CDC, after the cuts it's 10. The emergency funding he's asking for remember the point of the cuts he's making is circular, he started with needing 2 billion for his stupid border wall and then worked backwards to get the cuts, which included HHS, which has CDC under it.

    So he's now asking for "emergency funding" to replace the cuts he made, rather than just take it from the border wall he diverted it to. And the GOP is already out there telling people the wall is a good defense against the Coronavirus, you know because most Chinese people that enter the US do so from the Southern Border right?

    This is really scary stuff, we have a complete moron in the WH cutting millions and millions of dollars from organizations that were already underfunded(because he cut them in his last budget too). and his response is everything is ok, when it gets warmer things will get better, the stock market is fine.

    Build the wall to block a virus?

    Republicans sure can pick the dumbest puppy lovers.

    Sorry I got that wrong but I guess in this time it's understandable. Apparently a Democrat said Trump will probably claim his wall will stop the spread, so it wasn't the GOP saying it, it was a Dem suggesting the GOP will probably claim it.

    They probably will

    Probably in this thread but how about Ken Cuccinelli, on twitter, asking if the Johns Hopkins map of the virus spread had stopped working for others too or was it just him? Lots of people were responding uh are you kidding, you're asking us that question, shouldn't we be asking you given your job ?

    The Cooch is the guy who tried to make oral sex illegal.

    (And is an outright racist, but that is presumable from his party affiliation.)
