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…

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…
