Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, March 26, 2020

Molly Jong-Fast: Wednesday, during the latest installment of his daily briefings that have become must-see TV, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo said he spoke with Jared Kushner. You know Kushner--the president's son-in-law. The president's son-in-law is a member of the president's COVID-19 taskforce, but he is not a doctor or an elected official. In fact, Jared has no experience handling pandemics, or any medical background whatsoever. Jared Kushner doesn't know about science or medicine but Cuomo must appeal to him for help from the federal government.

Only the best people, right "c-c-conservatives"?

Can't wait for your claims of not supporting Trump in 5-6 years and citing his ----- show administration as a reason to believe their "government is the problem" mindset.

If you don't have letters after your name (like MD/DO) you should really sit down and shut up.

Looking at you president ------, et al.

"One of the biggest questions we've all been puzzling over is, why won't the president invoke the wartime Defense Production Act to force companies to make ventilators? "

Lots of questions right now. Like why won't Dems support giving money to the people to help them through the crisis without wanting to take care of pet projects that aren't related to the virus? I mean, so many mind-boggling questions from both sides that it's a wonder this country has ever done anything right.

The President has a trusted gate keeper?

Probably unprecedented. Impeach now. #resist

This country used to be able to do things right. Then a Rupert Murdoch and Roger Ailes decided they could have more money and power if they created a propaganda channel that made half the country completely delusional. So delusional that they now see nothing wrong with having a moronic egomaniac con man in charge of saving vulnerable lies.

BOTH SIDES my ass. When the left elects someone as stupid and dangerous as trump, you can say BOTH SIDES.

But dont hold your breath. The left isn't as dumb as the right.

There's a reason the left shut their states down early and the right still says that's an overreaction. The only thing the right can do is oppose the left, even if it means people will die.

Sure he has no medical background but he has Facebook. That's all that genius needs to prescribe solutions for the rest of us. If he needs more advice he can consult with Crown Prince Bone Saw, one of his best friends.

He'd be a huge improvement over the idiot we have in charge now.

Remember Jared from Subway?

I'd trust that guy with my kids before I trusted Jared Kushner and his COVID-19 taskforce.

Why put Kushner in charge? Easy way to embezzle COVID-19 funds.

It's a basic tenet of Capitalism. Never let a disaster go to waste. There's so much money being made right now.

... The president's son-in-law is a member of the president's COVID-19 taskforce ...

There are two task forces working in the White House.

One that we see, described here (www.foxnews.com) and a second, hidden task force lead by Mr Kushner.

Is Mr Kushner a member of Pres Trump's non-hidden task force?

@#3 ... Like why won't Dems support giving money to the people to help them through the crisis ...

The Democrats did want to give money to the people.

What the objected to was giving money to corporations without any restrictions on how that money could be used.

This fact isn't being reported by the right wing.

One of the biggest questions we've all been puzzling over is, why won't the president invoke the wartime Defense Production Act to force companies to make ventilators?

Other than "closing the borders" (his kneejerk response to everything), virtually every facet of Trump's response to the pandemic has made it worse.

If you proceed on the assumption that his ultimate goal is to sow chaos and discord in America, his pandemic response actually makes a whole lot of sense.

The Chamber of Commerce lobbied the White House saying that the companies' voluntary efforts were more than sufficient.

Why does Jared remind me of "Ken", you know Barbie's "boyfriend".
I bet Jared's kids have a striking resemblance to the mailman.

Probably the lack of any man bumps.. which is why Trump loves him.

I wouldn't take any advice from that wax figure... I would trust my cats medical opinion first.

Ummmm what are man bumps? I don't understand.

Cuomo is barking up a dead tree stump. He's a Democrat and Governor of a state that didn't vote for Trump.

We all know how Trump handles his enemies. DIE, you traitors, DIE!

Absolutely right.

I am glad to see you having your come to Jesus moment.

Any of the Democratic candidates would be better than Humpy the grabbenfurher.

Watch Humpy speak then watch Biden speak.

See?

The choice is obvious. To anyone with even half a brain like you!

Now that's funny.

You have "man bumps".

You just made them really obvious. (I have never seen you so I have to assume you made them bigger and did not cut off the wrong things)

Jared is probably hoping this kills a lot of his rent-controlled tenants. So he can finally get rid of them and up the rent.

Biden will be a placeholder for unelected corporate, Dems, ie, Clinton, Obama. To run the country in secret I am not comfortable with a demented old guy running but hey, Better than the evil and demented one we have now. Bernie 2020.

It's been doubling every day and we aren't even counting all of the people that died of Coronavirus because we lack the tests.
