The only good sign I can see from that is that it will give Trump ammo to rein in this madness sooner rather than later.  How compliant the governors are with those wishes is another matter.

You're living in a fantasy world.  There's no "madness" to reign in.  In NYC and other major cities effected, 75% of the population is going to get this if we go back to "business as usual".  That's not happening.  Lay off the FOX News.  Maybe by June 1 we can start to think about slowly returning to something resembling normalcy, but even that seems optimistic now.  Trump's initial response was way too slow and he fucked it all up.  Research how Sweden handled this with lightning quick action at the beginning followed by a libertarian laissez-faire approach that pretty much got everything back to normal within weeks.   They're in a fantastic situation now and can refuse to shut anything down because they were on top of it on Day 1 while Trump was sitting on his toilet tweeting for hours.

This thread was great before AA ruined it.
