Trump Rejects New York's Plea For Ventilators: 'I Don't Believe You Need' That Many

President Donald Trump rejected calls from New York’s governor that the state needed tens of thousands of new ventilators to treat a mass of patients infected with the novel coronavirus, saying he didn’t believe those numbers were accurate.

“I have a feeling that a lot of the numbers that are being said in some areas are just bigger than they’re going to be,” Trump told Fox News’ Sean Hannity on Thursday night. “I don’t believe you need 40,000 or 30,000 ventilators. You know, you go into major hospitals sometimes, they’ll have two ventilators. And now all of a sudden they’re saying can we order 30,000 ventilators?”




The president’s statements came as public health officials declared the United States the leading country in terms of coronavirus cases with more than 81,300 infected. More than 1,000 people have been killed by the virus, many in New York, which has the worst outbreak in the nation.

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) warned Thursday that the state’s hospitals could soon be overwhelmed with patients afflicted with the COVID-19 disease, noting more than 5,200 people had been hospitalized, including 1,290 in intensive care.

1. "I believe he is being ass....

aspirational about the outcome...", Dr. Fauci said on CNN about tRump. I heard, "I believe he is being an ass..." . I guess my mind is two steps ahead of my ears.

I just got unlimited long distance back today after none for over a month. Look out GOP, I'm back! I will be calling non-stop since emails just don't do it for me.

6. Thank you! Keep those calls coming.

That "they don't need it" claim will live in infamy, like his "it will go down to zero...by April...like a miracle" claim.

Thousands of preventable deaths will be suffered by New York, and many other states, because Trump is not taking this seriously.

18. And

PUTIN IS LAUGHING HIS ASS OFF AND STILL GIVING THE ORDERS TO TRUMP. PUTIN IS ORDERING TRUMP TO DESTROY AMERICA.

Putin has some embarrassing pictures/videos or criminal materials on Trump and many of the other Republicans in the Senate, and elsewhere in his administration..... Trump and others are being blackmailed into DESTROYING THE ENTIRE NATION, versus the personal humiliation of their petty reputations. If they all weren't Psychopathic Narcissists, it wouldn't have worked. Putin did his homework.......

Hillary? said: "It's a huge right wing conspiracy". She wasn't wrong.

Pelosi? said: "All roads lead to Putin". She wasn't wrong.

We Are So Fucked.........BEND OVER AMERICA, you ain't seen nothing yet. Even if there wasn't a deadly virus, the lives of the 99% will be screwed over forever more.......

The biggest problem is that there are 50+ million TrumpHumpers out there that are brainwashed into thinking Trump and Republicans are Gods...........and are too ignorant to understand they are going to get it up the ass, same as us, as soon as Republicans and corporations can institute a Corporate Fascist Tyranny. And they are within a hair of accomplishing just that..........

KATIE BAR THE DOOR.

11. "Two ventilators" per large hospitals? He's nuts!

Last edited Fri Mar 27, 2020, 03:29 PM - Edit history (1)

There's ventilators all over a hospital from the ER, to CCU and ICU, the ORs, recovery rooms, post ok and medical floors, peds, dialysis centers, plus spares.

If hospitals are caring for hundreds of corona virus patients they will need hundreds of ventilators. There are 62 acute hospitals in NYC alone, at a minimum say each has 200 patients potentially needing a vent, that's 12,400 vents just for EVERY acute HOSPITAL in the city. Multiply that times hundreds of hospitals throughout the whole state and it's clear that 30 thousand vents isn't an unusual request.

Trump is lying. He hasn't a clue how many ventilators any hospital has, and he couldn't care less about the people who need them to stay alive. This is retaliation against New York, this is another one of Trump's petty vendettas against Cuomo and Bloomberg for their scathing criticisms of his incompetence.

31. He's not mad at Cuomo and Bloomberg

 

He’s mad at New York for investigating his crimes. He’s trying to blackmail them into dropping the investigations.

It’s time for Cuomo to seizing the idiot’s NYC hotel for containment of COVID-19 victims. He insists on holding the lives of NYers hostage, so hold something precious to him hostage.

And if he doesn’t like it, go after his black penis substitute tower, too.

Pritzker should do the same to that dump in Chicago, and Newsom could go after that hellhole in Palos Verdes. And so on with every blue state governor with one of the scumbag’s toxic properties polluting their landscape.

Bring the virus into his space, and see how he likes it.

16. What will it take? Bodies piling up and Americans watching in horror

as tee-vee news reveals that reality? Medical personnel are starting to speak out, prefacing their comments with "I don't care anymore what happens to me -- I have to speak out." Before they describe the dire situation they are in. Mayors and governors are at the front lines, and the Trump administration continues to lie about shipments.

22. Yep, and then he'll say it "snuck up on us" and "no one could have known" we'd need so many.

Same way he went from saying we'll have zero cases by April and this is all a "Democrat hoax," to saying nobody could have see this pandemic coming.

20. Once again, Trump's "gut" is the final authority on the subject.

Trump's "gut" was the final authority for declaring North Korea was getting rid of their nuclear arsenal.

Trump's "gut" was the final authority for declaring Russia did not interfere in the 2016 elections.

Trump's "gut" (and his Sharpie) was the final authority for declaring a hurricane was going to hit Alabama, when it came nowhere near Alabama.

Trump's "gut" tells him his "hair" and "suntan" look great, and make him look more manly and attractive to women.

Trump's "gut" is always so full of artery clogging, trans-fat rich fast food, Adderall, and only Dog knows what other drugs, that he can't sleep at night, is morbidly obese, and is a candidate for a head splitting stroke or an explosive heart attack at any minute.

Trump's fucking gut.

C'mon, Don. Come show us how to do it, since you think we're doing it wrong. Oh, here's a recycled mask for you. Sorry, we don't have any fresh ones. Just stay the fuck out of the way.

This is 'The Twilight Zone', The Outer Limits', and 'The Stand' all mushed up together. The man is clueless, and doesn't give two shits about the populace he took an oath to serve.

I honestly can't believe this is happening. I can't believe how cold and heartless he is. How little he cares for the people of this country and how willing he is to sacrifice lives on the altar of his ego.

It is not possible for me to hate anyone more than I hate this man. There is no bottom to his depravity.

... we'd be down to zero, it would all of a sudden disappear, it was contained, deny he knew about it when he did, called it a hoax, and now this lame excuse to use this crisis as a weapon to get his way , and to hurt Governors who don't praise him and show him total loyalty by hurting American people and by refusing relief funds, and that should piss off every American in this country for doing this. trumps MIA in this response is creating a possibility we will be in a depression brought on by trump. His response has been a complete failure, and hurting us all with everything he's doing now.

35. I already hate the people that did this to us.

But by not letting this happen in real time and not stepping up to stop "their" president........ I sincerely hate all that support him from the bottom of my heart. They may be relatives of some of the fantastic folks that frequent this board. Sorry, not sorry, but I hate your friends, I hate your family and I hate your co workers. Why do I hate them so much? Glad you asked, because they are "perfectly ok" with this motherfucker killing me and mine here in NY, over in CA, over in WA and anywhere else this tit for tat with holding of medical assistance is going to happen.

I just want ya'll to understand that before you start making any posts from here on out about how we need to work together with these people. That we need to have a big tent and blah fucking blah. I WANT YOU TO UNDERSTAND THAT THEIR UNDERLYING SOUL CALLS FOR OTHERS TO BE HURT AND THEY ARE OK WITH IT. They are not misguided but generally the sweetest person. Just think that they are aiding and abetting a willing murderer. We'll never know just how many people will die directly and indirectly from the shit he's been pulling.
