Dr. Irwin Redlener has served as a critical voice about disaster preparedness amid the coronavirus pandemic this year, but on Thursday his grandson provided some much-needed motivation and adorability to the discussion.

“You know, New York City and New York state actually do a tremendous job of getting this under control and that was the case for many, many weeks as you well know,” Dr. Redlener explained as his grandson ran around behind him. “Now we’re starting to see an uptick as you pointed out and unfortunately I think most of us in the business, my business, would say that it was inevitable that we’ll start to see resurgences in places that had been under control and now are not. That is really a difficult situation, as is my grandson here knows.”

His grandson grabbed at his shoulders, and smiled in the corner of the screen, for which MSNBC removed their chyron so the audience could see momentarily.

“Oh, boy,” Dr. Redlener lamented, desperately begging his wife Karen for some help.

“The issue is that we’re going to see a big uptick all over the place in the United States and elsewhere in the world,” he continued. “This is not going away. We’re not doing to be free of the COVID-19 pandemic for the next couple of years and we need to get used to that fact. Even if we get a vaccine. It’s going to be a long time before we get this under control. So I’m not the least bit surprised about what we’re seeing in New York. And we have to — you know, gear up and be adults about this and do what needs to get done to protect ourselves by doing the things that have been recommended. I am very worried though, I must say as a last point –”

He was then cut off by his grandson jumping on the back of his chair to pop up as a big and excited smile above his grandpa’s head.

“Oh, boy,” Dr. Redlener said again.

“This is the best thing that I’ve seen,” MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace chuckled. “You can talk about whatever you want.

“Oh, boy,” Dr. Redlener said. “All right. Anyway, boy, oh, boy.”

He closed by saying that undermining our senior scientists and public health agencies is the last thing that should be happening and said that the only real solution at this point is to vote Trump out of office.

Trump’s Supreme Court gambit killed his last chance of defeating Joe Biden: Conservative columnist

Published

on

On Thursday, writing for The Washington Post, anti-Trump conservative columnist Jennifer Rubin outlined how the president blew his final, best chance to turn around the public perception of the presidential race, and define it on his terms rather than Joe Biden's.

"With a president whose performance is as rotten as Trump’s (Gallup also shows him with a 43 percent job approval rating), his only hope was to make his opponent even more unappealing than himself," wrote Rubin. "Trump, however, never settled on an effective attack on Biden and, in any case, cannot stand ceding attention to anyone else. Trump’s performance, his lies, his antics, his insults, his crackpot conspiracy theories, his attacks on the media and his financial scandals have remained front and center. In other words, Trump’s raging narcissism has prevented him from doing what was necessary to give him a reasonable chance to win reelection."

Fox News host predicts impeachment for President Biden — right after inauguration

Published

on

Fox News' host Greg Gutfeld ranted on Thursday that the day after Vice President Joe Biden is inaugurated that Republicans should impeach him.

Yelling into the camera, Gutfeld ranted that Trump got rid of ISIS and stopped North Korea from setting off nuclear weapons, both of which aren't true.

"So, now we're all talking about are "words, words, words' as opposed to Joe Biden's deeds," he continued. "There's a foreign policy issue we should discuss. He has compromised himself. And to Jesse's point, once -- If he actually wins, impeachment proceedings start the day after inauguration."

Nicolle Wallace blasts Trump’s fake ‘manliness’ for refusing to protect his key supporters

Published

on

MSNBC host Nicolle Wallace blasted President Donald Trump for not caring about his staff much less "his own godd*mn supporters."

Speaking with conservative Charlie Sykes and Democratic strategist Basil Smikle, Wallace showed a new Lincoln Project ad with Sam Elliott about fathers and sons and what it means to be a "man of family and faith."

"Above all they taught us to own up to it when we did something wrong," the ad says before showing a video of Trump saying he doesn't accept responsibility for the failures of the coronavirus.
