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.
@Adam Serwer🍝 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.

@Chris Hayes 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...
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.
#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.
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.
