    Coronavirus claims an unexpected victim: Florida vegetables
    The Associated Press, Apr 8 2020 2:03 PM

    Mounds of harvested zucchini and yellow squash ripened and then rotted in the hot Florida sun. Juicy tomatoes were left to wither, unpicked, in farmers' fields. Thousands of acres of fruits and vegetables grown in Florida are being plowed over or left to rot because farmers can't sell to restaurants, theme parks or schools nationwide that have closed because of the coronavirus. Other states are having the same issues. Agriculture officials say leafy greens in California are being hit especially hard and dairy farmers in Vermont and Wisconsin say they have had to dump a surplus of milk intended for restaurants.

    King Donald the First spent weeks downplaying the seriousness of the coronavirus pandemic before finally declaring it a national emergency on March 13. Asked about his administration's failure to provide widespread access to coronavirus testing, King Donald said, "I don't take responsibility at all." Then, without offering any evidence, he tried to blame Barack Obama. Unbelievable – but typical of King Donald. He has no empathy, no compassion and no decency. The global death toll is now 95,732, including 18,279 in Italy, 16,697 in the US, 15,447 in Spain and 12,210 in France.

    The COVID-19 death toll is now 21,892 in the United States and 113,555 worldwide. As for those 39,000,000 N95 masks that the United Healthcare Workers West union claimed to have located, it was a scam. The masks never existed but a Pittsburgh businessman could have made a $9,000,000 profit if his fraud had succeeded.

    Trove of masks never existed, FBI says
    A powerful California union that claimed to have discovered 39 million masks for healthcare workers fighting the novel coronavirus was duped in an elaborate scam uncovered by FBI investigators.

    Trump claims he can overrule states on ending COVID-19 shutdowns
    Yahoo News, Apr 13 2020 12:41 PM

    With millions of Americans locked down at home and out of work, President Trump today asserted his authority to reopen the country at a time of his choosing, although questions remain over the limits of his power because the governors and mayors, not Trump, are the ones who shut the country down in the first place.

    "For the purpose of creating conflict and confusion, some in the Fake News Media are saying that it is the Governors decision to open up the states, not that of the President of the United States & the Federal Government," Trump tweeted today. "Let it be fully understood that this is incorrect. It is the decision of the President, and for many good reasons. With that being said, the Administration and I are working closely with the Governors, and this will continue. A decision by me, in conjunction with the Governors and input from others, will be made shortly!"

    In one of the Three Stooges shorts, Curly's nose was stuffed up. He complained, "I don't smell so good." Moe said, "You're tellin' me!" Well, researchers have now found a temporary loss of the ability to smell and taste could be a symptom of COVID-19. The death toll is now 23,610 in the United States and 119,587 worldwide.

    King Donald the First continually denounces CNN, the New York Times and the Washington Post as "fake news" and "the enemy of the American people." He claims they are "destroying themselves" with their "hatred" of him. Lately he's also been attacking Fox News and its hosts because they don't worship him the way they used to. How dare anyone criticize King Donald! The COVID-19 death toll is now 23,644 in the United States and 119,699 worldwide.

    Trump slams Chris Wallace, Fox News
    HuffPost US, Apr 13 2020 8:36 AM

    President Donald Trump on Sunday took time out from his COVID-19 fight to check what Fox News was saying about him – and he came up furious at Chris Wallace. "What the hell is happening to Fox News?" Trump tweeted. He slammed "Mike Wallace wannabe" Chris Wallace and said he's convinced the Fox News host is "even worse than Sleepy Eyes Chuck Todd" of MSNBC. He complained that it's a "whole new ballgame" now at Fox. Trump didn't detail what specifically set him off. But Wallace featured Johns Hopkins health expert Tom Inglesby, who said on Fox News Sunday that had the Trump administration taken earlier action against COVID-19, "we'd be in a much better position" now.

    Cuomo says Trump is not a king, can't force states to reopen
    The Associated Press, Apr 14 2020 9:07 AM

    New York Governor Andrew Cuomo took to morning TV shows today to push back against President Donald Trump's claim of "total" authority to reopen the nation's virus-stalled economy, noting that a President is not an absolute monarch. "We don’t have a king," Cuomo said on NBC's Today. "We have a President. That was a big decision. We ran away from having a king, and George Washington was President, not King Washington. So the President doesn’t have total authority.” The Democratic Governor, whose state has become the epicenter of the coronavirus pandemic in the United States, was reacting to Trump's assertion Monday that "when somebody is President of the United States, the authority is total." "Nope," Cuomo said.
