SEN. CHUCK SCHUMER CALLS DONALD TRUMP 'RECKLESS' ON THE ABC'S VIEW

Image
Sen. Chuck Schumer On The View
Sen. Chuck Schumer reacts to Pres. Trump saying he publicly he takes hydroxychloroquine, the racial disparities of COVID-19, and the firing of inspector general.
Sen. Schumer calls it “reckless” for Pres. Trump to say he is taking hydroxychloroquine, a drug the president has touted that’s unproven for COVID-19 treatment.
He adds, “Don’t take it. It doesn’t work. Talk to your doctor if you have symptoms.”
He tells us he understands the desire for Americans to return to work, but says, “If we move too quickly this could come back”: “If we don’t solve the health problem, we’re not going to solve the economic problem.”
Sen. Schumer calls Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis’ comments saying the state has succeeded in its fight against COVID-19 “premature.”
“To compare New York and Florida is sort of like apples and oranges,” he adds.
The Senate minority leader criticizes Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell’s response to the $3 trillion relief package the House pa…

TRUMP MAKES DANGEROUS MOVE BY THREATENING VOTING OPTIONS

Image
Washington, DC-- In response to breaking news yesterday, that President Donald Trump, threatened to withhold federal funding from Nevada and Michigan after Michigan’s Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson announced vote-by-mail plans, Executive Vice President for Policy and Program Marge Baker released the following statement:
“Trump’s outburst over vote-by-mail options in two states is more forewarning that he will stop at nothing to corrupt the presidential election. He is making a dangerous -- and potentially illegal move -- by threatening to withhold federal funds from states that are working to ensure that the American public can vote safely in the midst of a pandemic. Many states have previously mailed out such applications and Republican states have made similar decisions to mail out applications this year, so this is clearly a partisan attack on states led by Democratic governors and illustrates Trump’s familiar pattern of corrupt retribution and extortion. Trump’s threat underm…

THE VIEW TALKS ABOUT MATT LAUER ALLEGATIONS & RONAN FARROW'S 'CATCH & KILL'

Matt Lauer Responds to Allegations in Op-Ed
The disgraced former NBC anchor blasted Ronan Farrow’s reporting about his sexual misconduct allegations — the co-hosts discuss.
“I was really surprised that Mediate would actually publish this op-ed,” says Sunny Hostin. “Clearly, you know, Matt Lauer has an axe to grind.”
“He didn’t do himself any favors by trying to attack Ronan Farrow, who by all accounts is a fantastic journalist,” Hostin continues. “I just didn’t understand where he was coming from on this.”
“I don’t care anything what that guy has to say,” Meghan McCain says of Lauer. “He’s been accused credibly numerous times of sexual assault against numerous women.”
“I just think the timing of this is very fishy,” McCain continues. “We’re in the middle of a huge global pandemic. I want to know what article Ronan Farrow was working on that seems to be threatening so many people in media.”
“It worries me that… a Pulitzer prize-winner does his investigation. It’s thorough, and…

TRUMP FAMILY ONCE FORCED 900 MOSTLY BLACK FAMILIES LIVING IN CONEY ISLAND OUT OF THEIR HOMES

Image
TRUMP'S DID NOT WANT TO RENT TO AFRICAN AMERICANS OR HISPANICS
NOW THISvia You Tube -- The Trump's once forced 900 mostly Black families living in Coney Island out of their homes — here's how the family used taxpayer money to decimate a New York neighborhood.
This is a must see story. Trump's used the code letter (C) on apartment applications to tell the agents the person was colored and not to rent to them. 
Washington Post -- When a black woman asked to rent an apartment in a Brooklyn complex managed by Donald Trump’s real estate company, she said she was told that nothing was available. A short time later, a white woman who made the same request was invited to choose between two available apartments.

The two would-be renters on that July 1972 day were actually undercover “testers” for a ­government-sanctioned investigation to determine whether Trump Management Inc. discriminated against minorities seeking housing at properties across Brooklyn and Queens.

Gov. Cuomo On Opening New York State
APRIL 26, 2020 -- During a press conference today in New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo talked about states reopening, and how coordination is "vital" to downstate New York, which includes New York City and Long Island.

Parts of upstate New York could begin “Phase 1” of reopening around the middle of May — provided COVID-19 hospitalizations have declined for two straight weeks by then — Gov. Cuomo said Sunday, though he noted that the Big Apple will require extra caution.

“I don't want to just reopen. We learned a lot of lessons here, painfully,” the governor told reporters in Albany. “We’re going to be better for it and we’re going to re-imagine what our life is and we’re going to improve for this pause.”

JEAN SHAFIROFF TALKS FOOD SHORTAGES ON JOE PISCOPO'S RADIO SHOW 'THE ANSWER'

Image
Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff was featured on Joe Piscopo's popular radio show "Am 970 The Answer" to speak about the disastrous food shortages across the USA and how we can help.
Ms. Shafiroff explained that since the Coronavirus pandemic began " over 17 million Americans have lost their jobs." She went on to say that "the huge increase in unemployment has translated into massive lines at food pantries across the country" .
She gave the following suggestions to listeners who wanted to help reduce this national food crisis.
1. Donate to a food pantry. Even donations as small as $5.00 help.
2. Volunteer to work at a food pantry .
3. Donate canned food or non-perishable food.
4. Help out a neighbor or friend who does not have food.
She then recommended donating to some of the following charities - Feeding America, God's Love We Deliver, Food Bank for NYC, Citymeals , Cityharvest , Heart of the Hamptons and NY Community Pantry.

DONALD TRUMP USES UNITED STATES POST OFFICE TO TAKE CREDIT FOR CORONAVIRUS GUIDELINES

Image
Story By James Edstrom - Donald Trump is a disgusting man and a poor excuse for a human being. Trump refuses to help the United States Post Office with their deficit, which every president in history has done. Trump wants the Post Office to go under so people can not have mail in votes. Remember when people vote, Republicans lose.
But the sad fact is, Donald Trump has no problem mailing out Coronavirus guidelines on the United States Post Office's dime, on Americans dime. He even makes sure he takes credit for the guidelines. Here we have someone that is willing to let the United States Post Office go under so people can not vote, but he did not mail this notice out with Fedex or UPS. When you look up the word moron, you see Donald Trumps picture.
The daily lies of Donald Trump are just a horror.  I know Trump personally for over 35 years, he has always been a con man and a crook. It is never about doing the right thing, it is always about money and power. How many people died as …

NANCY PELOSI STATEMENT ON TRUMP COVID19 FAILURE

Image
Dear Democratic Colleague,
This Easter Weekend provided me with a time for deeper prayer and reflection. This is an unbearably sad time with all Americans sharing the same devastating experience: we are grieving for those who have died from the coronavirus, we are fearful for our health and especially the health of our loved ones and we are heartbroken for our children who are unable to be in school and with their friends.
As Americans, we are suffering from pressures of economic hardship. All of us want to resume the precious and beautiful lives that America’s unique freedoms provide. We will overcome this moment, but success requires one fundamental from which all actions will follow: we need the truth. To succeed in this crisis, we must insist on the truth, and we must act upon it!
In order to move forward, we must first understand the truth of what has put us in this position:
The truth is that Donald Trump dismantled the infrastructure handed to him which was meant to plan f…

JEAN SHAFIROFF TALKS ABOUT FOOD BANK SHORTAGES ON FOX

Philanthropist Jean Shafiroff was featured on national TV's "Fox and Friends" to talk about how to help reduce massive food shortages at the food banks across the country . TV reporters Rob Schmitt and Carley Shimkus quizzed Ms. Shafiroff who explained why food banks were both short on funds and volunteers because of the Corornavirus pandemic. Ms. Shafiroff concluded with the following suggestions to help reduce the problem.
1. Donate money. This is the very best way to help a food pantry. You can do this by writing a check or going on a food pantry's website and using a credit card or pay pal to make a donation.
2. Donate canned food and store sealed food.
3. Volunteer your time to help out. ( if you are volunteering, do not go to work feeling sick.). Not all food pantries are taking volunteers but volunteers are done by roughly 60%.
4. Encourage others to donate and advocate on behalf of food banks.
5. Watch out for sham organizations. Do a little research on …

THE FOX NEWS LIES
This video speaks for itself. This is by the Washington Post, posted to Twitter. Horrible how Fox News spewed for weeks that this was a Democratic Hoax and now they have changed their tune. How many lives were lost and how many people got sick that believed their lies.
Fox News put every Republican on air that they could find to lie and lie about Coronavirus. Fox News should be held accountable, they have supported each and every lie Donald Trump and the Republicans have told us. If You Trump supporters haven't seen the light yet, there is no helping, you are as mental as Donald Trump and his criminal Republicans. Fox News is guilty for crimes against America. Plain and simple.
