At Tuesday’s Democratic debate, during a segment on how the candidates planned to deal with climate change, South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg put everything into perspective: None of these plans can come to fruition unless President Donald Trump is defeated — and to defeat him, his cowardice and his moral failings must be laid bare.
“We have all put out highly similar visions on climate,” said Buttigieg. “It is all theoretical. We will deal with climate if and only if we win the presidency. If and only if we beat Donald Trump.”
“Nominate me, and you get to see the president of the United States stand next to an American war veteran and explain why he chose to pretend to be disabled when it was his chance to serve,” said Buttigieg. “Nominate me, and we will have a different conversation with American voters about why the president of the United States thinks you’re a sucker when the problem in your life is your paycheck is not going up nearly as fast as the cost of housing or the cost of education or the cost of prescription drugs, and he has done nothing about it except tax cuts for the corporations.”
Gov. Cuomo uses his brother’s coronavirus to explain why people must stop ‘your stupid actions’ and social distance
As part of his press conference Tuesday, New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo (D) noted that his brother, CNN host Chris Cuomo, had tested positive for the coronavirus or COVID-19.
"Now, he is going to be fine," said the governor. "He's young, in good shape, strong -- not as strong as he thinks, but he will be fine. ... I spoke to him this morning and he's going to be quarantined in his basement at home. he's just worried about his daughter and his kids that he hopes he didn't get them infected. You don't really know Chris. You know, you see Chris, he has a show on at night, 9:00 on CNN, but you just see one dimension, right? You see a person in his job and in his job he's combative and he's argumentive and he's pushing people but that's his job. That's really not who he is. He's a really sweet, beautiful guy. And he's my best friend."
CNN’s Chris Cuomo tests positive for COVID-19
CNN anchor Chris Cuomo said Tuesday that he had tested positive for the coronavirus or COVID-19.
Cuomo made the announcement on Twitter, saying that he learned in the past few days he had come in contact with people who tested positive. When he developed a fever and chills, he was tested and turned out to be positive.
Currently, he is self-isolating from his family in his basement, which he said his family doesn't mind.
He intends to continue doing his nightly show from there.
In previous weeks, Cuomo got into a war of words with his brother, who said that their mother should stay with the governor because he comes in contact with fewer people. The elder Cuomo asked Dr. Anthony Fauci who was safer, and the CNN host lost the battle.
Ex-Trump health advisor cornered on CNN for administration’s failure to heed warnings in pandemic briefing book
A former health adviser to Donald Trump was grilled on CNN Tuesday morning over the fact that the current administration was handed a briefing book on possible pandemic scenarios back in 2016 and but did not follow it, with the host emphasizing, "doctors are dying."
Speaking with Poppy Harlow, infectious disease epidemiologist Katy Talento was attempting to make the case that there will be time later to figure out what went wrong with the response to the COVID-19 pandemic under the president's stewardship when the CNN host brought up the briefing book that outlined actions that government could take to stem such an event.
