Published

HBO’s “Real Time” host Bill Maher hilariously attacked President Donald Trump for a declaring a national emergency to build his border wall after Mexico and Congress refused to fund his plan.

“Try to remain calm, there’s a national emergency, haven’t you heard?” he asked.

“He did it, f*cko did it today,” Maher said. “The president declared a national emergency.”

Maher ridiculed Trump’s Rose Garden press conference announcing the declaration.

“This was just completely crackers,” he said. “I know I’ve said that before, but this was just one long, baseless, incoherent, stream of consciousness, call the nursing home rant.”

“We don’t even notice anymore when he gets stupider, it’s like farting on a garbage ship,” he continued.

“You know who should’ve declared a national emergency long ago? Fact checkers,” Maher joked.

“A national emergency should not be used by Trump — it should be used on Trump,” he concluded.

He went on to joke about Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY), Melania Trump’s sex life, and Fox News personality Sean Hannity.

Epidemiologist delivers a chilling warning as he dismantles the White House’s overly optimistic coronavirus projections

During an appearance on CNN this Friday, infectious disease epidemiologist Dr. Michael Osterholm warned viewers that "this is just the beginning" of the coronavirus health crisis and that we're going to see it continue to spread throughout the U.S., adding that people are underestimating just how the long the outbreak could last.

"I think one thing that's really being missed here is that if you look at 1918 and the big influenza pandemic that occurred then, that lasted until almost 1920 before finally most people were infected and therefore became immune or died," he said. "And what we're talking about here is this is not the next couple of weeks -- we're talking about months and months, and we're already running out of supplies now, and much of the rest of the country won't even have the supplies New York has when their first wave was up and active."

John Hopkins’ coronavirus data indicates that the US could ultimately end up even worse off than Spain and Italy

Published

Back in January and February, President Donald Trump and his sycophants in the right-wing media insisted that the deadly COVID-19 strain of coronavirus did not pose a major threat to the United States. But according to the Center for Systems Science and Engineering (CSSE) at Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, the U.S. is now #3 in coronavirus deaths. And when one closely examines Hopkins data, it becomes painfully clear that the U.S. might be moving into the #1 position in the weeks ahead — and why Dr. Anthony Fauci, expert immunologist, is warning that the U.S. could be looking at 100,000-240,000 deaths from COVID-19 when all is said and done.

Published

Appearing on MSNBC with host Ayman Mohyeldin, the author of a widely shared New York Times article on the dangerous rise of religious nationalism lambasted religious leaders who are still holding public services when the government is advising social isolation and claimed they are making things worse for the rest of the country.

Speaking with the host, Katherine Stewart, who is also the author of the book "The Power Worshipers," explained that years of anti-science rhetoric from the predominately rightwing evangelical movement is a contributing factor as to why the country is in the throes of a deadly pandemic that may lead to over 250,000 deaths.
