NURSES should have their student loan debt wiped clean after this

 @Peter Morley  @Justice Seeker is sheltering at home ☮️ Novartis makes the drug. Look up his connections to the company and wonder no more why he’s pushing this drug.

I wonder what percentage of  #Hydroxychloroquine fanatics are also antivaxxers. The pseudoscience game is strong in both sects.

“You have African American rappers saying N word this and N word that but a Caucasian can’t?”

“So say it”

P for PRESSURE 😭😭😭😭😭

Before You Put On That Mask I get it. You want to do *anything* you can to prevent the spread of this virus to you and your loved ones. But before you put it on, PLEASE keep the following in mind: (10 points)

my White women friends let me say it so it’s cool. I dap em up like “what’s good my Karen?” with a hard n too

"Karen [the term popularized due to its usage by POC to refer to the entitled, often racist well-off white women they had to deal with] is a sexist classist ageist slur"

White feminism never ceases to amaze

I deal w/ a lot of violent threats, vitriol, etc. But I never get more hate aimed at me than when I address racial inequities. If some people think racial disparities are as much a myth as other issues I discuss, then why do they get so much more violent & angry on this topic?

Hed: Trump Blames Obama for “Broken Tests” Lede: Trump blamed his predecessor for a lack of tests for the novel coronavirus during a press conference on Friday. Paragraph 20: Democrats say the coronavirus did not exist four years ago.

Trump: We inherited "obsolete" "broken" tests from Obama admin. Now we have good tests.

@AdamSerwer After almost an entire term he still blames Obama for the US stockpile being short, but thinks the states' governors all bear responsibility for their states running short, even though many started terms last year.

This is a clear example of why it is best to think of the number of confirmed cases we report as a lower bound, not the true number of coronavirus cases in this country.

"I thanked him for being the most amazing husband and for making me feel cherished and loved."

Maura Lewinger describes saying goodbye to her husband over FaceTime as he died from coronavirus.

"Then the doctor took the phone and he said, 'I'm sorry. But there's no more pulse.'"

We finally got some good news today. The Chinese government helped facilitate a donation of 1,000 ventilators that will arrive in JFK today. I thank the Chinese government, Jack Ma, Joe Tsai, the Jack Ma Foundation, the Tsai Foundation and Consul General Huang.

@chrislhayes Show this to the 8 Republican Governors holding out, or how pee moves around in a pool...either works for me!

Be careful of who you vote for. Because you'll get what you voted for.

GOP Governor Kim Reynolds  @Gov. Kim Reynolds won’t enact stay-at-home order because she doesn’t trust Fauci: ‘He doesn’t have all the information’. I thought  @Ron DeSantis was a lock for most useless Governor, but then Kim threw her hat into the ring. https://www.politicalflare.com/2020/04/gop-governor-wont-enact-stay-at-home-order-because-she-doesnt...

Can  @Tom Perez and the Democratic Party say they championship democracy when they think sending workers and voters out at a time like this is advisable? You're going to need those same lives you're risking now when we finally get around to the general election.

In the midst of a pandemic and after  #Florida poll workers tested positive for  #COVID,  @Tom Perez and the  #Democrats are pushing forward with an IN-PERSON primary in  #Wisconsin this Tuesday in a homicidal push to ram Joe Biden down our throats. Wow. https://www.politico.com/news/2020/03/31/coronavirus-crashes-wisconsin-primary-157722

Glad someone's saying it. But not just FL. Every sudden onset "pneumonia" or "respiratory failure" death of a patient who wasn't tested for  #coronavirus is suspect, around the country. Florida coronavirus deaths are higher than numbers in official reports https://www.sun-sentinel.com/coronavirus/fl-ne-coronavirus-florida-deaths-higher-20200403-3lv7oydemn...

Dear Canada, Remember us when we're gone. Signed, 'Merica PS. Please take care of Alaska.

Disgusting! DR JEAN-PAUL MIRA (president of France’s ICS): If I can be provocative, why don’t we test  #COVID19 treatments in Africa...like is done for HIV or with sex workers b/c we know they are highly exposed & they don’t protect themselves? DR CAMILLE LOCHT: You’re right.

Absolutely frightening.

Two French doctors are discussing live on TV how new treatment against #covid19 should be first tested in #Africa.

" – Like it's done for HIV and with sex workers
– You're absolutely right, we're going to seriously think about it"

The whole of Africa have recorded only 23 #coronavirus death  compared to
ITALY -13950 Deaths
China -3314 Deaths
Spain - 10,935 Deaths
USA - 6,099 Deaths

But this evil people want to start vaccination in Africa

 #UpstateLivesMatter is annoying. People (esp. white people) need to stop the [Insert word]LivesMatter trend. What's the most populous city in NY? the heart of the state's income? What area is suffering the most? You don't even know how much will be left per hospital.

#YangGang #BernieSurge #JoeBiden #KAGA ANYONE with sense, please retweet this image every time you see #UpstateLivesMatter.  And say, YES of course they do.  ALSO, so do the lives of every American, and EVERY New Yorker. Cut the crap.

A Detroit bus driver who complained in a viral video about a passenger coughing without covering her mouth has died of the coronavirus https://www.buzzfeednews.com/article/juliareinstein/detroit-bus-driver-dead-coronavirus-viral-video?...

Most of Captain Crozier’s sailors gathered to cheer him and honor him as he left the Teddy Roosevelt. Most of Eddie Gallagher’s sailors testified against him for war crimes. Guess which one Trump and his collaborators think is an American military hero?

Watch this video of the send off of Captain Crozier, commander of the aircraft carrier USS Roosevelt who was fired yesterday for sounding the alarm to protect his sailors. Tells you everything you need to know about the type of #leader he is.
