President Donald Trump just announced today Friday the 13th, 2020 (Like that’s not spooky enough right?) that he is declaring the coronavirus pandemic a national emergency, as Washington struggles with providing Americans with relief and officials race to slow the spread of the outbreak…. HMMM Sounds like every horror movie I’ve ever seen about an ‘outbreak’ but I have no fear of death. Hell OBVIOUSLY I care little about my health. I eat at Taco Bell often, and drink way to much Mountain Dew Baja Blast for my own good.
Not to take this lightly but I went shopping last night for groceries, and Mountain Dew Code RED ironically is my 2nd favorite soda flavor after Baja Blast (which only sells in Taco Bell, and short seasonal national releases in store like Publix over a few months only not a regular flavor…), and well it was SOLD OUT! This is when I knew this was getting serious!
But when I knew people were panicking was when toilet paper was all gone also! Which is ironic IMO because we have an outbreak, and so the two essential things people went for! CODE RED Soda, and TOILET PAPER! Now folks I get it this is scary but does all of the country all of a sudden have diarrhea? I mean get a grip folks… Pun intended!
Speaking from the Rose Garden, Trump said, “To unleash the full power of the federal government, through this effort today I am officially declaring a national emergency.” I thought for a second he was going to call for “Marshall LAW” but not yet! But while we have to cover ourselves, and protect ourselves better we cannot now let this epidemic stop our way of living. The white house, and President are doing what they can, and what’s hilarious to come out of this is how RED some media outlet talking heads must be after all when Trump closed travel from China a week or two ago before the “SHIT HIT THE FAN!” remember he was being called “RACIST” for doing it… Now it looks like Trump might have actually saved THOUSANDS of people from catching the virus had he allowed flights in from CHINA.
So to Joe BIDEN and Bernie SANDERS who both love CHINA I tell you this! Shut your stinking traps neither of you morons could have done better at this, and quite frankly Joe and his alzheimer’s probably doesn’t even know what’s happening right now as it is. I think the Media, and anyone in the socialist media who tries to politicize this should pay a price with their fans, network, bosses, and sponsors. This isn’t a time for them to try and tear the nation apart any further.
Stock market sharply rallied during Trump’s press conference , posting their largest single-day gain since October 2008. The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed 1,985 points higher, or 9.4%, at 23,185.62., the index’s biggest-ever point gain on a single day. The emergency declaration will free up as much as $50 billion in financial resources to efforts by states and U.S. territories to assist Americans affected by the outbreak. But Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, warned, “There will be many more cases” of coronavirus in coming weeks. As of Friday, the number of positive tests for people in the United States with coronavirus had reached 2,006, according to NBC News.. A total of at least 42 people have died after contracting the virus.
Trump announced the national emergency declaration at a news conference in the Rose Garden at the White House, where he was joined by Vice President Mike Pence, who is leading the Trump administration’s coronavirus task force. Also with president were members of that task force and the CEOs of Target and Walmart, who met with Trump earlier in the day. “To unleash the full power of the federal government … I am officially declaring a national emergency,” Trump said. “Two very big words.”
“The next eight weeks are critical,” the president said that officials announced a web questionnaire set up by Google that people can fill out to determine if they have symptoms or risk factors that warrant them getting a test for coronavirus. If they should be tested, under the website’s criteria, they will be directed to “drive-thru” sites, so so that people can stay in their cars when they are screened for the virus.
Trump said Google has 1,700 engineers working on the effort now, and also said that he expected the U.S. to have 1.4 million coronavirus test kits available within the week, and a total of 5 million kits within the next month. He said he doubted the country will “need anywhere near” 5 million kits. He also said he had ordered all states to set up emergency operation centers, and urged hospitals to engage emergency operation plans.
