Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo on Tuesday acknowledged that the coronavirus is "more dangerous" than officials initially thought after more than 300 died across the state overnight. "I'm tired of being behind this virus. We've been behind this virus from day one," Cuomo said at a Tuesday press conference in Albany. "We underestimated this virus. It's more powerful, it's more dangerous than we expected."

THIS: "It's like being on Ebay with 50 other states bidding on a ventilator. How inefficient," Cuomo said, noting that he only expects to receive about 2,500 machines from China because other states, the federal government, and Italy have also placed orders from the foreign government. "And then FEMA gets involved and FEMA starts bidding. And now FEMA is bidding on top of the 50. So FEMA is driving up the price. What sense does this make?" Cuomo asked.

That whole comment is a prime example of how Trump and Co have totally effed the whole situation up. The FEDERAL GOVERNMENT should be in the lead. States shouldn't be bidding individually. It is just a price war that way. Only enriching the Chinese and potentially some American manufactures they are all laughing all the way to the bank. And Trump is sitting on his fat orange hiney saying "governors" should do more and his deplorables are slurping it up.

That Pres Trump is allowing this situation to continue to occur, shows that he cares more about the profits of the companies and less about the health of Americans.

Pres Trump has tried to proclaim himself a "war president."

Why doesn't he act like one, and act in a manner that promotes the health of Americans as we fight this virus.
