Americans fighting each other instead of the virus. No wonder they lead the world in deaths.

What a sad sad country.

It would be nice if Trump actually rose to a challenge for a change rather than sinking to the lowest possible depths by setting people against each other and then saying "it wasn't me people"....

I don’t interfere with your right to sit at home in your pajamas and keep yourself socially distant from others.

What gives you the right to tell law abiding citizens that they can’t go for a walk in the park with their friends?

Our human rights are inalienable. They can’t be taken away by any person or government.

So do you feel the same way about Japan and Japanese people, that it's their 'right' to socialize and do what they want in public?

Anyhow these stay at home orders are hardly anything to cry about. Even in hard hit places like New York there is leeway and stay at home orders are nothing like the Trump supporters are making it out to be. You CAN go outside your home to do essential activities like shopping for food. You CAN go outside to do solitary exercise, maintaining social distance.

What is that so hard for inconsiderate people to understand?

No right is absolute. Your rights are limited when they start to infringe in my rights.

“You’re going to call your own shots."

And in the meantime, I'm going to publicly support protests in your state.

Funny how its only three states, three swing states with Democrat governors, where he is encouraging this. I guess his concern for liberty doesn’t extend to Republican held or politically unimportant states.

You’d almost think this was nothing more than a crass attempt to sabotage public health measures in his own country because he views it as a way of scoring cheap political points or something.

15 ( +15 / -0 )

The issue is more than 22 million have lost their jobs and are suffering. Trump needs to focus on solutions. Cheering on their protests and calling for their liberation is divisive in a time when unity is needed. It also does not address their grievances.

How is me sitting on a park bench and chatting your my friend an infringement of your rights?

Yeah! How is me spreading a virus that could kill you an infringement on your rights?!

People have been ordered into a temporary lockdown so that they can enjoy their freedoms once the pandemic has gone. You can't enjoy freedom when you're dead.

America is battling two virus - COVID-19, and brain-dead idiots.

The Donald is siding with the virus.

It seems that this irresponsible and repulsion individual is pushing for some kind of civil war.

From the BBC:

The governor of one, Michigan's Gretchen Whitmer, recently was the target of a mass protest at the state capital against her sweeping lock-down orders. A mixed crowd of conservatives, white nationalists and anti-government militias waved Confederate and pro-Trump flags, and signs accusing Whitmer of dictatorial overreach.

11 ( +13 / -2 )

“LIBERATE MINNESOTA!” “LIBERATE MICHIGAN!” “LIBERATE VIRGINIA,” he said in a tweet-storm in which he also lashed out at New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for criticizing the federal response. Cuomo “should spend more time complaining,'” the president said.'

Well, Putin must have given the code word to Trump to begin the end of his attack on our democracy - start an internal revolt to turn the American people against their own government.

Can you believe that? A US President - telling his supporters to begin a violent overthrow of local governments - while spreading the virus we've been trying so hard to stop.

It's like some Twilight Zone nightmare - but its real...

11 ( +12 / -1 )

America is battling two virus - COVID-19, and brain-dead idiots.

Surprise surprise!

"Placards identified the Michigan Proud Boys as participants in the vehicle convoy. Near the state house, local radio interviewed a man who identified himself as “Phil Odinson”.

In fact the man is Phil Robinson, the prime mover in a group called the Michigan Liberty Militia, whose Facebook page features pictures of firearms, warnings of civil war, celebrations of Norse paganism and memes ultimately sourced from white nationalist groups like Patriot Front."

Norse Paganism? And there's more:

"The protest has been heavily promoted by the Idaho Freedom Foundation (IFF), which counts among its donors “dark money” funds linked to the Koch brothers such as Donors Capital Fund, and Castle Rock, a foundation seeded with part of the fortune of Adolph Coors, the rightwing beer magnate."

These people are mental, totally unhinged. It's as though their consciousness is somehow reverting to that of the 17th. century:

"Rodriguez launched the website at an Easter service held in defiance of the governor’s orders on Easter Sunday, which was also addressed by Ammon Bundy, the leader of the militia occupation of the Malheur national wildlife refuge in 2016 that become a rallying point for the anti-government right in the US.

Bundy has been holding similar gatherings for weeks in Emmett, Idaho, where he now lives. On Sunday, he repeated his opposition to the Idaho orders, writing on Facebook: “We all have a duty to defend what is right and to make sure, that what God has given, man does not take away. Especially that great gift of agency, YES freedom!”

its too soon to start socializing and back to normal but arresting people walking or sitting alone randomly is insane.

10 ( +11 / -1 )

So go ahead and socially separate yourself, I'm not going to stop you. That's your right.

It's also my right to be protected against people spreading a highly contagious disease. You are living in Japan so breaking the stay at home request isn't legally enforced but in other countries you would be fined or arrested.

@rainyday -- exactly

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice, a Republican ally of Trump's, . . . said more testing is needed before any restrictions can be rolled back.

Hmm. I wonder why Trump isn't tweeting LIBERATE WEST VIRGINIA!

The US will LIBERATE ourselves of the moron now in the White House in November this year.

Fighting for the 'right' to risk infecting 'others'!

And if 'others' are infected they can echo the words of their Trump and say 'I'm not responsible for that', turn their backs and expect government to pay for and clean up after them.

Real rugged individuals. Not sorts guided by the 'wisdom' read or heard on some wack social media site, 8chan, Fox 'news', RT, Breitbart. infowars etc. etc.

You can find evidence all over the internet of the media downplaying the virus.

Really?

Lmao! Conservatives couldn’t argue themselves out of a wet paper bag.

The only thing conservatives have been criticizing is the apparent manufactured overreaction the governors have been taking.

It's also my right to socialize with my friends and family. You have no right to take that away from anybody.

You clearly have no clue how these rights things work. But don’t let that stop you.

Trump: The vast majority of history will write this buffoon off as a miscreant. That gives me solace. A warm feeling. A tiny % of a small mousy voice will squeak MAGA... but they’ll be drowned out by the roaring engines attached to the slogan flying through the heavens: IDIOT!

There is a general feeling that the epidemiologists don’t have a clue of what’s going on

Perhaps because none of the experts have seen a virus like this.

Perhaps because it's 'not just another cold/flu' like posters on this site, Laura Ingraham, Limbaugh, far right social media sites (US and 'abroad'), and others pushing anti-science, pro-.01% 'elite' agendas have been saying.

If those following their political, media and corporate leaders are willing to take full responsibility for healthcare costs related to ignoring the actual scientists, then let them cluster in their herds together.

LIBERATE! LIBERATE! cries the orange avatar of Paul Revere riding (or tweeting) to the rescue of the Republic! It's at least comforting to know that Trump's role is only that of Tweeter-in- Chief and that he's not calling the shots any more. The adults of America are taking control at last.

So let's get to the crux of the issue- more value is placed on capital than the lives of people.

It's what drove Abe to keep the Olympics scheduled for this year, and it's what drives Donny to disregard the commonsense which tells us to first get a firm handle on the virus. It's become clear what the real priorities are.

he architect of Obamacare

According to many Obamacare is a flawed program, still one that enabled more Americans to get healthcare than before.

Re healthcare programs, didn't Trump say (I know, I know - his word is meaningless) he had a better-than-Obamacare program? If so, is that what the country's seeing now as corpses pile up and the costs to deal with the virus continue to sabotage the solid economy Trump inherited (story of his life) from president Obama.

Newsflash - over 30K Americans have died already from Trump's debacle of a response

And Trump backers (US and 'foreign) continue to dispute those figures using instead ones found from one of their many far right media sources. They continue to say some variant of 'science bad - global ruling class elite good'. They've turned full on eugenicist saying 'it's only the old, ill and poor getting hurt' while ignoring facts saying otherwise. They're pointing fingers at 'enemies', which their leaders know their mobs need to stay riled. And they're willing to risk making this nasty virus even nastier by ignoring what medical experts, especially those who understand communicable diseases are saying.

You know what? Abe comes off as crystal clear sane compared to Trump. What Trump is pushing is akin to urging people to smoke where there is a gas leak.

bass: Dr. Fauci is the one that thinks we can and should open the country up in small incremental steps for certain industries, so wait....now we shouldn’t listen to Fauci?

We should listen to Fauci. Everyone is working towards a plan to begin to open things up again. But even with that I can't imagine they are including mass gatherings like the Olympics. The first step will be getting people back to work and we can take it from there.

We should listen to Ezekiel Manuel, the architect of Obamacare who wants the entire country shutdown for at least 18 months?

Nope, we shouldn't. He can be ignored.

A similar line of 'reasoning' said by the gun right's extremists. The 'my right to not socially myself' could well result in further costs of all sorts, including and especially those related to healthcare. The gun right's extremists also say let the government pay, e.g. for extra policing, court costs, healthcare, etc. for problems my fellow gun owners cause.

Dr. Anthony Fauci: hopes to ease stay-at-home orders by May 1, 2020, would be "a bit overly optimistic"

Dr. Anthony Fauci: the country is still “not there yet,” with the need for systems of mass testing in order to isolate new cases and avoid new clusters of infection

Dr. Anthony Fauci when asked about a possible second wave of infections as the country opens back up: “If you mean it goes way down and then come September, October, November, we have another peak, I have to say I would not be surprised. I would hope that if and when that occurs, that we jump all over it in a much, much more effective way than we have in these past few months”

he also lashed out at New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo for criticizing the federal response. Cuomo “should spend more time complaining,'” the president said.

It seems Dr. Trump is making these States his laboratory to study the virus . The only problem is that he's not dealing with mice and rabbits but human beings!

I might give Trump a little leeway if CV numbers were not so bad but the fact still exists that (1) the US leads the world (in a bad way) with CV numbers and (2) China is doing better with the CV fight than the US and it started in China. That's how sorry Trump is doing. Also TrumpCare is pretty much useless.

 and the crowd who wants to keep the population under house arrest is not rational.

'House arrest': Another term from the alt right glossary. I think those who believe in science, especially those who will wait for more research findings rfom scientific organizations to determine when current health practices can be eased are the 'rational' ones.

Many in the far right media, including social media (US and 'abroad'), many telescamgelists, many far right politicians (US and 'abroad') are stoking fires to further splinter the US. Trump and his followers (in the US and 'abroad') know that divide and conquer has long been a tactic used successfully by despots. How are the issues being handled in your country?

Trumps response was reasonable. As opposed to i.e. Nancy Pelosis call that people should all gather in Chinatown.

No facts and no substance, but good joke, not very funny, but passable.

And you recommend we go back to normal so thousands more Americans can die alone...

I did not say "go back to normal". There is a large area between taking no care at all and the police-state like restrictions that many places have now. Look at Taiwan and Sweden for example.

The virus doesn't recognize your "large area", it does recognize a large area where people gather unprotected and become infected then spread the virus. if that's what you want, get Trump to start his rallies back up.

That's really "doing no harm"...

Choosing the option that kills more people is doing harm. I don´t know what is so hard to understand there.

Trump is correct, and the crowd who wants to keep the population under house arrest is not rational. Remember the Hippocratic oath? "First, do no harm." Destroying the economy will cost many more lifes than any additional infections because of lifting the curfew rules. And of course, there is a sensible middle-ground; you can promote sensible behaviour without infringing on peoples freedom.

Newsflash - over 30K Americans have died already from Trump's debacle of a response. And you recommend we go back to normal so thousands more Americans can die alone... That's really "doing no harm"...

Well, then I have a suggestion - it's time to start back up the Trump rallies - pack everyone together in those stadiums. No need for masks - those are just for the "Libs". Get together and fill those stadiums with as much virus as you can stand - and if you do come down with Corona, it's only the flu, right? The main thing is that you show your undying (?) love for your President...

Trump can also urge all his supporters to "Liberate" their cities and states. Maybe they can pass out black facemasks and AR-15s as they file out. Release the anti-government armed hordes to "take back" America!

Violent Anarchy - it's what Trump and Putin cooked up together in 2016...now being carried out by all of Trump's zombie-like supporters...

Congress hasn't passed any major healthcare legislation to replace Obamacare.

They had HOW LONG to do it with control over all areas of government? The virus does not care and the virus does not wait (for the new and improved TrumpCare - which has no specifics anyway, and probably you are better off financially going to Trump university or buying one of Jared's properties).

It is TrumpCare. Proof is there is no public option or the expansion of Medicaid. How is Trump going to pay for the CV medical bills? They run in the 100s of thousands. And TrumpCare junk policies? That's a real laugh. ObamaCare (the real deal) had the public option which would be a reliable solution and Trumpcare killed it along with killing the expansion of Medicaid.

.00009%, 30,000 Americans have died from this virus. CDC estimates that, as of mid-March, between 29,000 and 59,000 have died due to influenza illnesses in the past year. Nearly 39,000 Americans died from car crashes last year. We don't shut down the country for the flu and car crashes, but we shut it down for the Wuhan virus. A great depression will cause way more suffering and deaths than this Wuhan virus. Trump will make sure this doesn't happen.

They are disappointing facts under Trump. The bad numbers under Trump and TrumpCare are proof.
