Giuliani said last night about Trump and governors:

Quote

GIULIANI: A little advice for the governors and the mayors, having been in that position in three extraordinarily difficult situations. I'd say one equal to this. Take the blame when you have to. If you play with your boss, sometimes it's better if you don't win the golf game. He's the boss. He's got all the resources.

President Trump said Saturday he may announce later in the day a federally-mandated quarantine on the New York metro region, placing “enforceable” travel restrictions on people planning to leave the New York tri-state area because of the coronavirus outbreak.

The news comes as the United States has become the epicenter of the novel coronavirus pandemic, with more than 100,000 confirmed infections and nearly 1,600 deaths.

Here are some significant developments:

We obviously haven't seen any details, but it almost sounds like something along the lines of what the Governor of Rhode Island is trying to implement for people coming into that state. 

But its just a flu, or cold, or some other regular virus. :shrug:

It's really hard to comprehend a world "leader" being this fvcking stupid, but with doozies like this coming out seemingly daily Trump proves he's up to that particular task...

And what the actual +++++ is a quarantine going to do at this late stage?

Florida is also requiring people coming in from Louisiana to isolate for 14 days. Is he talking about a quarantine there also?

No?

 

Hmmmmm

 In a country (U.S.) that tends to find cash for tax cuts and military spending while pleading insolvency to everything else, that makes it politically unimaginable.

.......

The primary reason that this sort of approach appears unthinkable in the United States is the same one that limits options to expanding health care and lowering the cost of university education: Wealthy Americans have proved adept at shielding themselves from taxation.

This  is how ridiculously stupid Trumpistan can be. The one guy that is giving this administration any sort of cred in this pandemic, is now being attacked by the rabid Trump pit bulls.

Oh, when we all get mad and want to protest, say If we're under house arrest 4 months from now still, some states are gearing up to make sure that's a crime.

Apparently these states are targeting fossil fuel protests (which is horrifying in it's own way) but I can see similar measures all over the place. You know, cuz you can't tell fire in a yadda yadda yadda...

 

It says protests but talks about destruction of property.  Destruction of property is not a good way to protest.  They are not limiting a right to assembly are they?  Just harsher crimes for vandalism?

I was just going to post that same article. Now some in the far right think Dr. Fauci is part of the "deep state" opposing Trump? Sounds like the same people who thumbed up Trish Regan talking about the "coronavirus impeachment scam".

Sorry... these laws that seek to make it illegal to protest pipelines have been around for a couple years. The one I posted shows states trying to ram them through and give tighter enforcement. That wasn't a great story explaining it. 

https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2019/jul/08/wave-of-new-laws-aim-to-stifle-anti-pipeline-protests-activists-say

That's one of a bunch that goes into the first amendment concerns.
