"Just wanted to catch up on some of the news you know what's going on in the world and what's going on around us and then you know I'll be picking up your phone calls on on these you know what is trump think his job is and what are you grieving and how are you dealing with that and have you come up with a clever way to say hi to strangers when you're out walking around and if you're not walking around you need to get out walking around eight unless you live in one of those rare places where it's not possible to get out walk around because you have narrow walkways you know there's a floating home community for example that I can see from my from my home that in a word and Louise I lived in one free here's where the walkways are only four feet wide I mean what do you do right hold your breath I guess but in any case you know how do you how do you greet people is some of the news the in is so you know we'll get back to that just a minute but internal emails this is the headline over rawstory internal emails reveal trump administration officials were warned about lack of protective gear early on this is maybe the fifth or sixth time we have heard the same essentially same kind of message this is from Kaiser health news this is not from some left wing site this is Kaiser health news a high ranking federal official in late February warned that warned that the United States need to plan for not having enough personal protective equipment for medical workers as they began to battle and I will corona virus according to internal emails obtained by Kaiser health news the email show the medical workers and first response would not have enough masks gloves face shields and other supplies known as PP to protect themselves against infection when treating covert nineteen patients by the way we are for the virus as the corona virus where the novel coronavirus when you've got the disease we refer to it as covert nineteen it's sort of like HIV and aids HIV is the virus you minimum you know fifty deficiency virus aids is the disease that causes just you know for those of you who are confused or or wondering about when you use which phrase back to these emails the emails part of a lengthy chain titled red dawn breaking bad include senior officials across the department of Veterans Affairs the state department the department of homeland security and the department of health and Human Services as well as outside academics and some state health officials Kaiser health news obtained the correspondence through a public records request are they gone is this these are actually from the from the emails this is for the evil Lee the director of the center for operations research in medicine and healthcare at Georgia tech formerly a scientist at the Atlanta VA Medical Center health sciences wrote the demand is rising and there is no guarantee that we can continue with the supply since the supply chain has been disrupted this is on February twenty fifth Dr color major a physician at the department of Veterans Affairs again on February twenty six twenty fifth more than a month ago wrote we should plan assuming we won't have enough PP so need change the battlefield and how we envision or even define the front lines the same day Melcher and others I'm reading from the Kaiser health news article the same day Melcher and others raise the concern in the messages trump made remarks to a business roundtable group in New Delhi India so at the same time that his department of homeland security and health and Human Services and and the veterans department and the department of state at the same time that they are talking among themselves this is well over a month ago about how we need to get personal protective equipment into our hospitals nationwide right now to get ready for this at the same time that was happening Donald Trump was in India with India Marty making a speech to a business roundtable group and he said and I quote we think we're in really good shape in the United States was just a fortune so far and we think it's going to remain that way for a meanwhile a new study has come out suggesting this is the study is titled pandemic politics Tienen state level social distancing responses to cover nineteen is done by the university of Washington and it finds that the states with Republican governors or majority Republican electorate have lagged far behind their democratic counterparts instituting social distancing policies those delays are quote likely to produce significant ongoing harm to public health and again I blame this on trump on the Murdochs at right wing hate radio they say our findings are unambiguous political variables are the strongest predictor of the early adoption of social distancing policies the difference between the red states and blue states are between you know can the concern is that could the deer the difference could translate into a significant number of human lives lost Ron DeSantis meanwhile is still hasn't enacted a stay at home order off for the entire state of Florida dissatisfied days to crack down on spring breakers the governor took no action to block thirty eight hundred cruise ship passengers who are disembarking in Miami earlier this month after one of them had tested positive for carbon nineteen he did absolutely nothing just let them out of the population in Florida and a lot of you know probably the majority of people who take cruise ship trips out of Florida ports are Floridians is cheap they don't fly into town researchers theorize the Republicans delayed response to cover nineteen had been influenced by cues from president Donald Trump trump quote this is from the study quite strongly signaled that the coronavirus was an exaggerated threat opposition was magnified and reinforced by Republican leaning media outlets therefore publican voters are more concerned about a ball during Obama's presidency than they are about clover nineteen trial your listening to the Thom Hartmann program call two oh two eight oh eight ninety nine twenty five the Boston globe's today saying Donald Trump has blood on three thousand so far
