I hate to pull an Omni here....   but the only way to avoid catastrophe in the USA is If Trump is pushed aside and ignored by those who are in charge of the safety aspects, or he’s “incapacitated” in some way.   He’s going to be the death of hundreds of thousands if his “plan” to get everyone acting as if nothing is wrong by Easter actually happens.

Canada needs to be buying its food from central/South America immediately, so we can shut the border and still have a food supply.  I wonder if Canada has any sort of contingencies that don’t involve the USA....?   Probably not.

I sound like a doomsdayer....

I think a big risk is Americans themselves.  Many tend to be ignorant and uniformed. Trump is one of these types. I can see a lot of Americans not paying attention to the news or ignoring the social distancing and self-isolation.  Like all those people on the beaches in Florida.  I think no matter what the feds do Americans will screw this up.

States and cities are already ignoring Trump and will continue to do so regardless of he says.

As Graham says, people are dumb.    Graham is wrong when he says “whatever the feds do won’t matter though.  That’s idiotic.  Of course it matters.   They are going to listen to Trump.  That will be enough people to spread this like wildfire.

Trump’s own appointed expert (Fuci?) had to say it’s not his job to jump in front of the microphone whenever Trump speaks.  That comment was very telling.

The border is shut to non essential travel. Supply chains such as food etc. are not restricted so as long as the US is able to produce food, we will be able to buy it.
As to "pulling an Omni" please go ahead, fill your boots. My concern is that what will we ever do if Trump gets voted out and disappears? :D

If Trump is as medically savvy as he claimed to be while touring the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta earlier this month—“I like this stuff. I really get it,” he said—and it’s as epidemiologically sound as he makes it out to be to abandon the current restrictions, Trump can show us the way. All we should request in return is his promise to refuse a ventilatior should he get sick enough to need one.


Politico editorial writer calls for the death of Trump, at least indirectly...   

We’re all going “full-Omni” now!!   ;D

I didn't say that, i said "I think no matter what the feds do Americans will screw this up".  In other words, the feds could do everything right (which will help), but many Americans aren't going to listen to certain warnings and are going to make the situation worse for the US, and that will be impossible to avoid.  You can't fix stupid.

I always think the dirtbag can't possibly go any lower, but he never disappoints. 

He's sending aid to Florida and allowing New Yorkers die because of Gov. Cuomo.  Then he goes on about his ratings and Meghan Markle while body bags are filling up outside New York hospitals.

Yes, he's sadistic narcissist and it won't change.  I get that, but people still support this??  It makes me lose hope in humanity.

**** every single one of those MAGAts.

Florida has been an exception in its dealings with the stockpile: The state submitted a request on March 11 for 430,000 surgical masks, 180,000 N95 respirators, 82,000 face shields and 238,000 gloves, among other supplies — and received a shipment with everything three days later, according to figures from the state’s Division of Emergency Management. It received an identical shipment on March 23, according to the division, and is awaiting a third.

Trump and co. handling of the corona issue has demonstrated a level of arrogance, narcissism, and ignorance previously unseen. The only appropriate outcome would be for Trump and his bum **** buddy Pence to contract the virus and die. When they are buried I will show my respect by taking a **** on their graves.
