The 300,000 masks the White House sent Illinois were the wrong ones.

The 300,000 masks the White House sent Illinois were the wrong ones. @GovPritzker asked for N95 masks. They sent surgical masks. "While we do not have the final count on this yet, I can say with certainty that what they sent were not the N95 masks that were promised," he said.

Pritzker: "I can't emphasize enough how much we need the federal government to step up and amplify the size of their PPE deliveries to Illinois and frankly across the nation."

so it's not surprising that his hand picked chorus of praise singing sycophants are just as incompetent as he is. Illinois is lucky Trump's morons didn't ship them Mardi Gras masks..

8. Lot of confusion about masks.

The N95 masks are the only good ones.

I've seen local shops sell useless masks. $2.50 each. When I see someone wearing one, I tell them they are no protection at all.

Only thing available locally, so what to do?

10. Unless you are a front line medical provider, experts have said any mask will...

serve the main purpose of keeping you safer: by reducing the chance of you touching your own face with your unwashed hands.

Now, it's true that any old mask won't keep you from infecting others, but you should NOT be out and about if you coughing and sneezing ANYWAY.

18. While not 100% effective,

A surgical mask will reduce the chance that you may infect others (if you are asymptomatic) by catching larger droplets you are exhaling. It is also a visible sign that you are taking this seriously and are concerned. Sort of an anti-MAGA badge. I always wear one if Iím shopping. I hate it because it makes my glasses fog.

19. I agree about it being helpful to let others know you take things seriously.

But again, one shouldn't be out AT ALL if you are coughing or sneezing. Mask or no mask.

Healthy folks just breathing doesn't spread droplets.

But sure, wearing a mask anyway sends the right message.

22. There was the case of the church choir

Where many got sick after choir practice - the authorities concluded that it could be spread through the air. The article makes it sound like they were very cautious about following the guidelines but 45 of 60 were infected anyway.

It's allergy season. Wearing a mask tells people I'm thinking of them-and keeps some of the pollen diwn.

and he sure is one now.

And that Navarro...he didn't fall too far from the ol' fuck-up tree either.

12. I bet Trump gets a little chubby when he gets to own Pritzker and the libtards of Illinois.

Trump will never win Illinois, and he therefore hates the people there.

Same, I believe, with California, Washington, New York. But those states have the big money Republican oligarchs who will yank his leash from time to time.

And the place I feel sorry for the most is Detroit. No money, no capability to fight it due to budget cuts, no great politicians, despised by Trump and Republicans, they are really really really screwed.

Like broken ventilators to CA. He sent the ones he feels CA deserves.

33. He wants to spend all the states money

And leave the Fed money safe for Corporate bailouts, Trump's personal, non-accountable half trillion dollar fund, and still have tax payer's dollars available for even more future tax refunds to the 1% just before the elections......

He sends all the broken ventilators to a blue state and lets THEM pay to have them repaired, depleting their states money.
Two birds with one stone......Blue State - Repair costs......Trump's gloating over his quasi intelligence in turning it into a win-win for the Republican cabal.....

CABAL......everyone look that word up in the dictionary.!!!!!!!!! The "most perfect", "most beautifulest word" Trump type words exactly and precisely describing TRUMP AND HIS MOST CORRUPT REPUBLICAN PARTY EVER IN OUR ENTIRE AMERICAN HISTORY.................

This is what is meant by the phrase: "The best government Putin's money can buy"

Read it and weep, and learn how to speak/write in Russian dear people. Coming to a country near you.........

Seriously? They get made by different companies, have different product-codes, serial-numbers, specifications. THEY HAVE DIFFERENT NAMES! For f***s sake.

How the hell could that mix-up happen?

"A mask is a mask. Derp, derp, derp."

Yeah. The same way a screw is a screw.
