Pence: ‘“I think honestly, if you look at the trends today, that I think by Memorial Day weekend we will have this coronavirus epidemic behind us.”‘
BECAUSE HAPPY TALK!
Pence trial-balloons saying the epidemic is behind us, because the wh (especially Kushner) still believe in a June 2020 drop in deaths despite the oncoming 100,000 death toll.
….Dr. Robert Redfield, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tweeted that all of the forecasting models tracked by the CDC now predict that US deaths will exceed 100,000 by June 1.But Trump has continued his unrelenting push for states to open their economies. During a Rose Garden event this week where he reiterated his hope that a coronavirus vaccine could be ready by the end of this year — a goal many medical experts view as highly optimistic — Trump declared that “vaccine or no vaccine, we’re back.”
“I was just waiting to see your eyes light up when I announced this,” President Trump said as he told reporters he was taking hydroxychloroquine.— Kaitlan Collins (@kaitlancollins) May 19, 2020
