As so many have already posted here but good God in Butter he is an idiot

I just saw about 5 minutes of Trump w/Pence behind him and that mother fucker is clueless.

Trump: (rough quote)
People are getting better and right now the real # of Americans we have to worry about is
either 15 or 45 and something about outcomes doing better because of ... and then some
gibberish about his closing the borders will keep us all safe.

A 2% lethality rate with our population of 330,000,000 people is > 6 million.

1. I agree with you that he is an idiot, but that's 2% of the people who get infected by thr virus,

not 2% of the population.

11. Actually, it's more than 2% of the people that get infected...

I.e.. when the count was 80,423 infected the total number of dead was 2,712, so not sure of my math, but seems closer to 3.3%

8. I'm sure I don't have the quote right but it was something like:

"It is only 15 people, they are getting better, and we are totally ready for this."

6. Funny that you mention butter

when my 3 year old grandson saw Trump on TV he asked me, "Grandma, why does that man have butter on his head?"

9. In the meantime:

What can possibly go wrong?

There may be just a few confirmed cases (for now) in the U.S., but there's sure a lot of potential out there already.

https://www.nbcnews.com/health/health-news/thousands-americans-voluntarily-self-quarantine-after-returning-china-n1138731

Thousands of travelers who have returned to the United States after recent trips to China are spending nearly half a month behind closed doors, under voluntary self-quarantine, even though they do not pose any immediate coronavirus-related health risk to others.

<snip>

Overall, 575 people in New York have been identified as being at "medium risk" because of recent travel to mainland China, according to the state Health Department.

It's one of many states monitoring travelers from China who have agreed to lie low for a few weeks out of an abundance of caution.

The California Public Health Department said there are more than 5,400 such people in the state. In Washington state, 745 people have been asked to self-quarantine. Georgia health officials identified about 200 travelers.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services said more than 300 people were referred for monitoring.

In Virginia, 138 residents are being monitored. "They were asked to remain at home and practice social distancing," said Dr. Lilian Peake, the state epidemiologist. She said social distancing means avoiding public transportation (including taxis and ride-sharing) and large public gatherings and staying about 6 feet away from others.

A total of 27 people are under voluntary self-quarantine in Iowa. North Dakota has 10.

Health officials in Alabama, Indiana, Massachusetts and Texas are also monitoring travelers, but they declined to provide exact numbers, which change daily as passengers continue to arrive home or finish their 14-day self-quarantine periods.

10. There is no doubt in my mind that several areas will be hit.

Areas near international airports and college towns/cities.

I turned the tv off after he said three sentences because it appears once again that many of us are more informed than that nitwit.

12. I must be tougher than some of you.

I listened for a full 20 minutes before I became to disgusted to keep listening.
