Hawley: It’s ‘Vitally Important’ To Open U.S. ‘As Soon As We Possibly Can’
Remaining on lockdown for year to get a vaccine ‘is just not going to work, we can’t do that, it will end up being a humanitarian crisis and nobody wants to do that.’
That’s “pro-life” for you – forty or more years of right wingnut fealty to billionaires isn’t enough. Their current profit margins are more important than lives.
As usual, many of the responses are priceless:
That will only happen with fast testing that is available everywhere. When will that happen? How have the Chinese prevented the debacle with testing? It is the Chinese fault, right?
Impatience to reopen will cost lives and hurt the economy. As much as we wish we could go back to normal, doing so before it’s safe will just start the cycle all over again, hurting the economy more.
Some people still cling to the belief that being polite to an idiot will get them somewhere.
And if we had tests, we could. We’d know who actually has the virus, including asymptomatic carriers.
It’s almost as though the Powers That Be want chaos. Sort of like that 2016 interview with Trump….
Wish we could but #GOP bungled response and made the problem worse.
Respectfully -will your kids go back to public school or daycare? Will your parents be out grocery shopping? Will your wife resume workouts at a local gym? Will your family go back to church and eat out on Sundays? We need credible examples on what to do.
Wine shopping online.
If we “open the U.S.” too soon, the humanitarian crisis is going to be even worse. Business will temporarily be booming, while people die in droves and end up closing down business for lack of live workers and customers.
Haven’t you been paying attention?
No. This has been another episode of short answers to simple questions.
I’ll go with the medical professionals opinion on what “as soon as we can” means.
Remember @HawleyMO: it is unwise to remove a cast before a broken bone is fully healed.
Why do you trust #TrumpPropaganda?
Why didn’t you demand action in #December, #January, #February, #March and #MostOfApril?
Why did you do nothing, Senator @HawleyMO?
Do you hate Americans?
You know what’s important? Not fucking dying. That’s important. How many have died because they couldn’t eat in a restaurant? Y’all want to believe the Dear Leader that’s your fucking problem. I suggest y’all get together for a big group hug
Why would you care if Missourians die? You only care about your corporate donors and making your #DearLeader happy by agreeing with everything he says.
So it’s a real shame Republicans squandered so much time that could have been used getting it under control, isn’t it?
You wouldn’t be in this predicament if you had removed President Bullshit from office. With competent leadership we could have mitigated this disaster back in January. Even now @realdonaldtrump hampers our efforts at containing and treating this pandemic.
You should head on in to grocery stores and bag groceries 8 hours a day to show us how safe it is to go back to normal…lead by example
He prefers wine shopping.
Perhaps you should be more concerned with your constituents instead of your big money donors.
Killing a few retirees will help save money and help make America great again！
“…And I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty…”
Today at the White House:
Q On Israel, Congresswoman Ilhan Omar, yesterday, said that the United States should rethink its policy of aid toward Israel after she and Congresswomen Tlaib were denied entry. Congresswomen Tlaib was later allowed to come in, but she decided not to. Should there be any change in U.S. aid to Israel?
PRESIDENT TRUMP: No. And you should see the horrible things that Tlaib has said about Israel, and “AOC plus three.” That’s what I call it. “AOC” — just take “AOC plus three.” And you should see the things that the four of them have said about Israel over the last couple of years.
I mean, Omar is a disaster for Jewish people. I can’t imagine, if she has any Jewish people in her district, that they could possibly vote for her. But what Omar has said, what Tlaib has said.
And then, yesterday, I noticed for the first time, Tlaib with the tears. All of a sudden, she starts with tears. Tears. And I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it. I don’t buy it for a second because I’ve seen her in a very vicious mood at campaign rallies — my campaign rallies — before she was a congresswoman. I said, “Who is that?” And I saw a woman that was violent and vicious and out of control.
And all of a sudden, I see this person who’s crying because she can’t see her grandmother. She can see her grandmother. They have her permission to see her grandmother, but she grandstanded and she didn’t want to do it.
So, that’s a decision of Israel. That’s not — a lot of people are saying that was my decision. That’s a decision of — of Israel. They can let them in if they want, but I don’t think they want to. When you read the things that they’ve said about Israel — how bad. And if you look at their itinerary before they found out — you take a look at their itinerary, that was all going to be a propaganda tour against Israel.
So, I don’t blame Israel for doing what they did. I have nothing to do with it. But I don’t blame them for doing what they did. I think it would’ve been very bad to let them in, including the four — I’m talking about all four — but these two that wanted to get in: Omar and Tlaib.
And I think it would be a very bad thing for Israel, but Israel has to do what they want to do. But I would not cut off aid to Israel. And I can’t even believe that we’re having this conversation.
Five years ago, the concept of even talking about this — even three years ago — of cutting off aid to Israel because of two people that hate Israel and hate Jewish people — I can’t believe we’re even having this conversation. Where has the Democratic Party gone? Where have they gone where they’re defending these two people over the State of Israel?
And I think any Jewish people that vote for a Democrat, I think it shows either a total lack of knowledge or great disloyalty.
All right? Thank you very much everybody.

The Washington Post Story, about my speech in North Carolina and tweet, with its phony sources who do not exist, is Fake News. The only thing people were talking about is the record setting crowd and the tremendous enthusiasm, far greater than the Democrats. You’ll see in 2020!

Yep. Donald Trump (r) is the republican party.

I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country. They should apologize to America (and Israel) for the horrible (hateful) things they have said. They are destroying the Democrat Party, but are weak & insecure people who can never destroy our great Nation!

“I don’t believe the four Congresswomen are capable of loving our Country…” You’re a Fascist. By definition and deed you apparently hate the Constitution.
“…They should apologize to America (and Israel)…” I’m not aware of any law that compels any American citizen to apologize to a foreign nation.
“…They are destroying the Democrat Party…” No, they’re not. And it’s the Democratic Party, asshole.
I did Nazi that coming… (July 18, 2019)
