Stopped calendar: Bill Richardson wants to be frank with Mexico

COVID-19 Response

Like everyone else, we urge you to wash your hands and engage in social distancing.

Unlike everyone else, we urge you to also help with this smart plan to get more tests, ventilators, and PPE. Everyone can do that plan right now, at home, in just 15 minutes.

If enough people help with the plan we can save lives. Take time out now and help get more desperately-needed supplies.

As long as you don't look at the year, a calendar stuck on February 31 is almost close to being on the right track every four years. Bill Richardson is a lot like that, saying yesterday at a town hall meeting in Phoenix that we should tell our friends to the south:

"Hey Mexico, why don't you help your people and do something to give them jobs. Maybe we will do something with you to help create jobs at the border. Maybe joint projects, but at the very least don't give people maps in the easiest areas to cross."

He said some other standard things as well, but, needless to say, CNN Assignment Editor Marissa Muller didn't call him on those stock talking points.

Comments

"Pat", Yes you are right, the Mexican people Love the Mexico City drug dealers.

I question whether it's really so bad in Mexico. I think their government is urging people to move here in a calculated move to get their remittances and to gain influence over our rich economy.

Is a calendar that says FEBRUARY 31 ever right?
