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.

.@rsimmon: @mhanham on Trump tweet w Iran pic: "That allows people to adapt & hide how they carry out illicit activity." Everything Trump does he shouldn't can be explained away as "12d chess". His loudest opponents simply aren't smart enough to show that wrong. Pathetic losers.

.@Pawsitronium: @mhanham says Trump shouldn't have tweeted the Iran pic. All her whining falls on deaf ears for many reasons: Trump's just smarter & more streetwise than those like her. Do you realize that's an issue or would you like to enable the gross incompetence of her ilk?
