    Let’s pray this virus doesn’t blow up in Central America and Mexico.

    I think you are speaking about an inevitability, prayer notwithstanding.

    Not yet, it was a NYT breaking news notice on my iPhone.

    Edit: Relooked my phone-says (with quotes) "this might be bad' not "this could be bad". Meantime the Dow is down another 750 points.

    Probably based on the unproven theory that the virus does not do as well in higher temperatures; therefore, it would be less contagious.

    Yes, the WH knows more about parasites and infestations more than anyone else.

    He knows more about viruses than all his doctors, believe me, I can tell you that. He knows more than any doctor in the history of the country. Trust me.

    Sometimes I think there are people on this board who would welcome a recession.

    I’d welcome a short lived one if it got (Trump) out of the White House. We’d be better off in the long run as a nation.

    If the CDC keeps this up they will get labeled deep state by the red hats.

    Time for Trump to start purging the CDC.

    The White House is a center for disease control. The staff is just doing a poor job of controlling Trump.

    Anyone who thinks they've got Trump contained is full of crap.
