One of our local news stations this morning was giving the usual gloom & doom projections of cases and deaths, and then actually said "This is a worst case projection and isn't what will probably happen," which was refreshing to hear from the media. Using best case (Trump) or worst case (MSM) projections are equally bad IMO.
How about consulting a subject matter expert or two before blurting some random timeline, kinda like tweeting no more transgenders in the military. The Pentagon was like what the fk?

You’re right, it’s no better than the MSM, which I stopped watching well before all this started. The unfortunate thing is dumb fks everywhere believe both sides of the rhetoric.

That's the way I heard it too, the open by Easter was what he "hoped" for. Obviously, he is listening to people who are telling him that is too early, and moved that target back 18 days. But let's not miss an opportunity to bash the President, right?

Exactly.

Only CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC, MSNBC could twist that around to say something different.

Yeah, I'm trying to find a job too. The job boards keep advertising jobs, and with what I do, I can work remote. But it seems that projects are on hold right now.

You've got an offer, which I presume you've accepted. I've had two interviews in the past 3 months.

Here's a crazy idea: how about you vet your timetable with your scientific advisers before you open your big yap and say something that turns out to be completely unrealistic and only makes you look stupid?

Shouldn't numbers for China and Iran be removed from the equation since they most likely DGAS if anyone dies?

Those these are the official numbers; accumulated in the same manor as in the past. Mainly good for comparison purposes.
