Man makes outlandish claim with no evidence. Says 'everyone knows it happens'.

Yeah I call royal bullsh*t on that.
Ok, do whatever you want.

Good luck! I think the $ is a forbidden character in Twitter user names. Hmm, maybe that is a clue!

How I miss the days of Trump, the most normal president ever .. Not sure I entirely agree with the $1.9t bill but the same can be said for the Trump $1.7t tax cuts to the 1% - it's a hostage situation sadly so I can't blame the D's.
Take Trump out of the equation and start with Obama back to Wilson, it's still not 'normal'. Not that it's all bad, it's just not what we see, especially in this age of communication.

What do you mean about it being a hostage situation?
The Trump organization went over a year without a formal press briefing.
After he was inaugurated it took him a yr to have a press briefing?
Somebody hasn't been paying attention.
It was 27 days into his Presidency when he had his first press conference. Sorry you didn't know the answer, and it seemed Indy didn't either. And he constantly did impromptu press briefings with the WH press corp..

27 days is correct...

It wasn't like Indy actually answered my own question afterwards. We were talking about "from Inauguration" that he hasn't had a press conference, and Indy posted his comment about Trump to it, but now this is proclaimed as victory? Ok, damn you got me.

"He hasn't had a formal press conference in 48 days, which would be the longest for any President in over 100 yrs. It's hard to call that normal."
Technically, you are right. I assumed this was understood that this was from Inauguration, since that's when we were starting the Biden countdown. And then I tried to clarify with you and asked you if it was from Inauguration, but you didn't respond. What's up with that?

I think it is fine to limit public appearances during a deadly pandemic.

Yeah, if you pretend like it's not even happening, it will just blow over. And whatever you do, make sure you don't condone what science is telling everybody.

Biden speech draws more broadcast viewers than Trump's first TV address

The best part about this is Biden surely doesn't give a shit about the ratings.

Hard to say if this belongs in Politics or the Covid discussion in the General section.

Many Republicans are refusing COVID vaccines. Experts are trying to change that

I don't get it. It just ensures we don't reach herd immunity. AND it just gives the virus more hosts to mutate in. Ugh.

Yeah. I don't get it. At all. My dad got his 2nd vaccine last week and my mom her first. Both converted Republicans when Trump ran for POTUS. But all of their children, myself included, are very close to them and aren't Republican. They thankfully know how serious we take Covid. I scheduled them both and got it all taken care of.

My wife and I are scheduled for the 25th of this month. My brother gets his tomorrow. My sister and her husband both got theirs. Once my wife and I are done with our two doses, the immediate family can all celebrate and relieve some of the stress we've all carried for over a year.
