As someone who recently spent almost a week hooked up to a ventilator (and probably wouldn't be alive today without one), I can attest to the importance of ventilators and the need for an adequate supply.  #coronavirus  #CoronavirusUSA  #COVID19  #Covid_19

Can’t help thinking how incredibly proud Governor Mario Cuomo must be looking down at Governor Andrew Cuomo. His leadership in this deadly crisis is spectacular. He is meeting this moment and displaying the qualities that have always defined America’s greatest leaders.

President Trump to Sean Hannity: “A lot of equipment is being asked for that I don’t think they will need.” My Q: How will that thinking impact how you fill their orders? Trump: I never said governors wouldn’t need the numbers they were asking for. (Note the quote above.)

Of all the rotten, despicable things Donald Trump has done since taking office, blaming health care workers for the lack of masks is like top 3.

I don’t usually get into this, but seems like the next time the president says “who had any idea something like this could happen” the next question from whoever should be “what about all the warnings by the health agencies and intelligence community that are all documented?”

COVID outbreaks are happening in Amazon warehouses in NYC & across the country. It’s more important than ever to fight for essential workers’ rights incl. hazard pay, paid leave, & COVID-safe workplace conditions. That means delivery drivers, too. https://nypost.com/2020/03/24/amazon-workers-at-6-us-warehouses-test-positive-for-coronavirus/

BREAKING: Trump is holding a PR stunt for a hospital ship in Norfolk today. Think about all the people wasting their time on this instead of doing their job. Think of what they could be doing and the danger this puts them in. But Donald wants his picture taken with a big ship.

Trump invites male CEOs to the Rose Garden, then targets a woman CEO Mary Barra for his ire. He tells Pence not to call back Gov Whitmer because wasn’t nice enough to him. He signs the relief bill w/out inviting Speaker Pelosi. He is small man, who is afraid of strong women.

President Trump is a public servant. He works for us. Or least that's the way it used to be. No one -- not a governor, not a doctor, not a patient -- needs to show their appreciation in order for him to do his job & help them. (BTW, no one forced him to take this job.)

You have got to be kidding us. These tweets don’t help anyone. Instead, get you dad to show some empathy and humility, to cut out all the petty grievances crap, and to depend on experts and drop his tired (and fatal) I-know-it-all routine.

"The US response will be studied for generations as a disastrous, failed effort. What's happened in Washington has been a fiasco of incredible proportions. We are witnessing one of the greatest failures of governance and basic leadership in modern times." http://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2020/mar/28/trump-coronavirus-politics-us-health-disaster?CMP=Sha...

It should not be lost on anyone that Trump's tirade against GM singles out Mary Barra, the GM CEO, and now he goes after Michigan's governor Gretchen Whitmer. He can't stand strong women.

CDC has retweeted a dangerous post from Secretary Alex Azar, which I will not retweet for fear of amplifying his insane message. Suffice to say he is spreading confusion about who should stay home. The correct answer: Everyone who possibly can. Please don't amplify his post.

Trump will have his personal signature on relief checks — this is unprecedented and undemocratic. The American taxpayer is writing the check.

still don’t know how, after three years of his demented gibberish, not one WH reporter has snapped and asked, “are f***ing insane?”

Hi, Mr. President -- thanks for tweeting that interview. Gen. Semonite and the Army Corps are indeed doing great work, but at nowhere near the scale that is needed. We're hundreds of thousands of hospital beds behind, months behind schedule, and...

Thank you to Rachel @Maddow for putting our Military on full display, and showing how GREAT a job the Federal Government is doing! Also, a special thanks to General Semonite, a Patriot of the highest order and a truly talented engineer and builder!

People are dying because of it, and yet we still aren’t having a frank national discussion about  @Donald J. Trump’s psychological unfitness for office?

Democrats are going to have to turn out in *droves* not only to overcome the Trump Cult, but to fill the space that's going to be left by the childish Bernie voters who are already prepping their excuses for staying home or voting third party - *again*

My 89 y/o grandmother, who is isolated at home in CT, just told me she reads the replies to my tweets and then investigates the profiles of people who leave rude replies. So don’t be mean to me or my grandma will judge you.

My mom works an hourly job. This is personal to me.

Rep. @AOC: "What did the Senate majority fight for? One of the largest corporate bailouts with as few strings as possible in American history. Shameful!"

Rep.  @Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez: "What did the Senate majority fight for? One of the largest corporate bailouts with as few strings as possible in American history. Shameful!"

Medicare for All means never losing your health insurance if you lose your job. That is what we must guarantee to the American people.

The cruise industry registers as foreign companies to avoid paying US taxes. Now they want US bailout money. Now the same Republicans who say immigrants who pay US taxes shouldn’t get help are bending over backwards to give 🤑 to foreign companies who DON’T pay taxes. Insane.

Good news, good news, good news.

Thanks to all who sent kind words&prayers for my husband John. He has coronavirus & has been in the hospital for pneumonia & low oxygen. He took a good turn, was just released & is now recovering at home! Thanks to those who cared for him &for all front line health care workers.

3.3 million people, suddenly out of work. How many of those jobs could've been saved, if our government had taken this threat seriously in January, even February?

Would take an unprecedented level of media solidarity but When Trump avoids a reporter's question, the next reporter he chooses should simply re-ask the previous question.

I would argue that the president is now murdering people in the middle of Fifth Avenue

Facts are empowering. Even when the facts are discouraging, not knowing the facts is worse. I promise that I will continue to give New Yorkers all the facts, not selective facts.
