Thanks to Mayor de Blasio

His awfulness on coronavirus allows us to show that criticism of political leaders is about failures to keep us safe"not about political parties.

The latest by this Democratic mayor is an indictment of him.


2. In case you haven't been paying close attention to de Blasio's mishandling of COVID-19. Here's some more reading:

So de Blasio is being advised by the same people who advise the governor of Georgia?

Apparently so (from the article):

De Blasio's comments echo Georgia Governor Brian Kemp's claim on Thursday that he did not realize asymptomatic people could spread the virus "until the last 24 hours."

Kemp received backlash for this claim, as many pointed out that public health officials have been stating for weeks that the coronavirus can be spread by those who do not display symptoms, deeming de Blasio's argument just as concerning.

Such utter BS. Chinese told us this in January. In a rapidly developing out break you have to take your data where you can get it. It's why China went on lock down.

Yikes, this type of knowledge was definitely publicly reported by traditionally reliable sources in mid to late February at the very latest. All state leaders should have been aware by March. Wtf.
