    Trump is on. He seems tired. Voice is hoarse. No jokes yet. Reading notes which is a huge upgrade.

    “I will protect you if your governor fails”

    Said moments after talking about how well they are working with the governors. You can’t make this stuff up.

    Let’s say a governor is failing. How is good for the country to have him throw that line out there. Get his task force engaged with the governors and help. Talk about the help you’re providing. But why phrase it that way? Who does it serve? What cause does it advance?

    I quoted their own website. It said August (that is the model in the articles which also say August). I'm thinking that they aren't updating the title (given that the title stays regardless of the country displayed).

    I am also quoting their website. The literal headline Dated April 7.
    The last US death is projected to be on June 19.

    I think the August stat is older. They have been moving projections down and backwards.

    They utilize the same date as the end date on their model (August 4).

    That is the end of the model...But the top of their data sheet clearly has been updated to reflect SD through May. It says updated April 7 (today).

    Not sure what the argument is. That sheet is live data. The articles are not.
    Several of us have been glued to that site since it went up.

    I went to their own model FAQ, which matches the article. At the very minimum, they have divergent indications.

    They aren't. They won't be added to the tally if a test doesn't confirm.

    Hmmm... the President talking about the virus infecting African-Americans 3 to 4 times more than other races. Hmmmm. That's really strange, if true.

    President forgot name of Spanish Flu. Lol. “You know what the worst one was right? 1917 or 1918 and everyone knows what it was called. It was....the flu.”

    He’s also fixing the post office...

    Oh, and mail in ballots are corrupt. They’re corrupt.

    Interesting presser.

    He is clearly on an hour or two of sleep, at the most. Probably stayed up all night golfing.

    It is the comorbidities present in the population. Less affluent people have a higher prevalence of other diseases and health problems that Covid 19 turns lethal.
