Wisconsin’s biggest newspaper pens brutal takedown of Trump: ‘Reject this un-American candidate’

Published

on

Donald Trump is getting a rude welcome today as he campaigns in Wisconsin: an editorial in the state’s largest newspaper, The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, calling for the defeat of his candidacy.

This also comes a day after Trump’s merciless interview with right-wing talk radio host Charlie Sykes, in which the Wisconsin talker shredded The Donald on his public treatment of women, especially Ted Cruz’s wife Heidi.

The newspaper editorial carries the headline, “By any measure, Donald Trump is unfit to be president.”

And it kicks off with this: “No to Donald Trump.

“No to his bigotry.

“No to his contempt for women and minorities. No to his vague, clueless bluster about the problems facing the nation.

“No to Trumpism, which runs counter to the ideals of this nation of immigrants, to the notion that by working together under the rule of law, we can protect freedom and promote inclusion and fair play.

“Wisconsin Republicans: Reject this un-American candidate on April 5.”

And things just get more severe from there.

“A Trump presidency would float down a river polluted by hyperbole and misstatement, tacking left to right, right to left, claiming up is down, white is black, night is day. A reality TV Wonderland,” it says toward the end. “Only we live in the real world, where the words and choices of presidents can have momentous consequences — war and peace, feast or famine, freedom or tyranny, life or death.”

“Voters can do the nation a huge service on April 5,” it concludes. “They can say ‘no’ to Donald Trump.”

Harvard researchers want less accurate tests for COVID-19

Published

The aphorism "perfect is the enemy of good enough" has been played out to tragic effect in the US's inadequate testing for the coronavirus, according to researchers calling for quick tests that cost only about a dollar each, and which may not be as accurate but can be carried out several times a week by the whole population.

Michael Mina, assistant professor of epidemiology at Harvard University, has for weeks been pushing for what he calls "crappy" tests.

His idea is to move away from the current high-precision molecular tests, known as PCR tests, which are still scarce in large swathes of the country and which people often have to wait hours to get done, and then have to wait days -- or up to a week -- for the results.

WATCH: Seth Meyers goes after ‘sociopath’ Jared Kushner for America’s coronavirus failures

Published

on

The host of "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on NBC harshly criticized senior White House advisor Jared Kushner for America's COVID-19 testing failures.

"More than 155,000 Americans have now died from the coronavirus pandemic," Meyers noted. "Cases are rising in more than 20 states. The U.S. now accounts for one-quarter of all coronavirus deaths in the world."

"And in some parts of the country, people are waiting as long as two-weeks to get their test results -- which is insane. The whole point of testing is to find cases, isolate them and trace their contacts. If it takes two weeks, it's pointless."

Published

on

The report noted Dr. Deborah Birx has also been undermined by Trump, who attacked her on Twitter.

So Crazy Nancy Pelosi said horrible things about Dr. Deborah Birx, going after her because she was too positive on the very good job we are doing on combatting the China Virus, including Vaccines & Therapeutics. In order to counter Nancy, Deborah took the bait & hit us. Pathetic!
