    This guy is such a hack.....his daily press briefings are designed to instill fear and provoke chaos. All politics all the time.

    He just said that 80% of the population would get this disease. That's at least 250 million people. Even with a death rate of 1%, that's 2.5 million.

    He's also saying this is going to last a long time....several months at least.

    The guy needs to shut the hell up.

    So you have numbers to substantiate the 80% infection rate in other parts of the world?

    And you have the tens of millions dead to match the 1% mortality?

    So answer these questions.

    1. infection rate, low or high?
    2. mortality rate low or high?

    Of course they don't.....but they'll repeat the lies to hurt Trump's chances at re-election because orange man bad.

    If Obongo was president, non of this crap would be on TV and people wouldn't be hoarding toilet paper like morons.

    Maybe Cuomo and all the rest of the Governors of these Sanctuary States in Crisis will start sending all these Disease spreading illegals back to where they came from.

    The funny thing is just as you mentioned; orange man is truly bad. Most rational American's can see that he is playing this strictly to enhance his chances of getting re-elected. Most of us can see through his facade. In a time of crisis, he is not a leader; Pence is more of a leader then Trump could ever hope to be.

    If your leader goes on TV to calm the populace about a crisis - and the next day the market drops 2,000 points and people run out to buy food and TP - you may not have the best leader in a crisis. Just say'n, the proof is in the results.

    You might be right. More people trusted Obama in a difficult situation - if that includes the press, then it is what it is.

    Don't you get it???? My answer as well as yours doesn't mean didley squat. Anyone wishing to estimate stands a better chance if they rely on the experts, not nit wits like you and me who only have extremely biased opinions.

    Here is how you talk to the population. I know it's not super exciting yelling at reporters type of stuff, but this is the actual info that people need.

    Yesterday, my wife and I went to Walgreens - doubt it exists in Oz; it's a pharmacy/general store - and someone had put strips of tape six feet apart so you could practice social distancing while waiting in line.

    On the way back, there's a skateboard park that was built oh - maybe a year ago. It was completely full of teenagers. They definitely weren't practicing social distancing.

    The real concern is our jobs..... Atleast mine is. With states going to shelter in place orders what about our jobs??

    Unemployment doesn't pay 100% unless they're going to start to now so that doesn't cut it...... Last I heard democrats are against a stimulus check, is that true ?

    All I know is, online computer games seem to be gaining players right now - I'm seeing more people on World of Warcraft! Golly, I wonder why!

    So you are incapable of calculating what 80% of the population in other areas of the world might look like in terms of #s of infected? And what the #s of deaths might look like if 1% mortality were accurate?

    Is that exercise diffucult?

    Or a bunch of morons are panicking due to the constant and non stop media "coverage" of it. And not "or" but because of. They are inducing this panic hoarding.

    No the exercise isn't difficult. Because you asked that I do it is probably the leading reason I don't do it. Hang in there!

    People didn't panic this bad after 9/11. As bad as Bush was, people got the feeling that things were being handled in a semi-competent manner. People didn't panic this bad during the Bird Flu outbreak, even though more people died because people had a semi-general trust in the government to handle it. People just plain old don't trust Trump and company to handle a crisis. It is what it is.

    You can tell yourself that, if you like. The media's culpability is plain to see, for most people.
