Florida woman:

Crying at Winn Dixie. The woman in jeans stepped up and paid for the groceries of the young man in front of her whose card was declined. He was on the phone frantically trying to figure out how to get $$ to pay. “We all have times like this,” she said. People can be amazing

Also, for the record since this is important apparently, the Claws + milk + flowers are mine; the flour and spices are hers; the young man’s groceries were already bagged and he had almost $75 worth of items, including baby food.

Thanks, David Geffen, for your thoughts.

"Trump has told people he wants his signature to appear on the direct payment checks that will go out to many Americans in the coming weeks ... Normally, a civil servant—the disbursing officer for the payment center—would sign federal checks."

But, of course.

Trump Says He Told Pence to Ignore Governors in Hard-Hit Areas If They Are 'Not Appreciative'

Shortly after the U.S. death toll from the coronavirus pandemic reached 1,500 on Friday, President Donald Trump took to the podium at a White House press briefing and complained that certain state’s governors are not “appreciative” enough of the federal government’s help—so much so that he said he’d told Vice President Mike Pence, the leader of the coronavirus task force, to skip calling governors of some hard-hit areas.

Trump singled out the Democratic leaders of Washington and Michigan, noting that he had advised Pence not to call them as the healthcare crisis plagues their states and people fall sick and die.

“He calls all the governors,” Trump said. “I tell him, I mean, I'm a different type of person. I say Mike, don't call the governor of Washington, you're wasting your time with him. Don't call the woman in Michigan.”

“If they don't treat you right, I don't call,” Trump said.

Michigan’s health department is reporting 3,657 COVID-19 cases and 92 deaths. In Washington, there have been 3,700 cases, according to the state, and 175 deaths.

@GovWhitmer said this morning on @WWJ950 that vendors "are now being told not to send stuff here to Michigan. It's really concerning. I reached out to the White House last night, ironically at the same time" he was on @FoxNews bashing her.

"We need help..."

As usual with “this” General Motors, things just never seem to work out. They said they were going to give us 40,000 much needed Ventilators, “very quickly”. Now they are saying it will only be 6000, in late April, and they want top dollar. Always a mess with Mary B. Invoke “P”.
