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.

@Yamiche We should have been testing everyone weeks ago and supporting the health of every human being.

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@SpacewaysTravel: has @Yamiche been really pressing Trump officials on how many tests and when? Or, has she been obsessing over things that don't matter like "Kung Flu"? More people are going to die from #covid19 because people like you enable worthless dreck like her.

@Yamiche First: you are the best question-asker we have. Second: do we know if anyone in immigration has even been tested?

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@11TimeZones: the U.S. desperately needs ventilators, masks, tests, etc. People are going to *die* without enough of those. Instead of demanding specific #s & dates, @Yamiche obsesses over what Trump officials call things, falling into a Trump trap. Corinthians 13:11 *now*.

Compared to masks/tests/beds/etc, it's submicroscopic. MT @a_humphrey23 and then her colleague says "switching gears to a larger question" as if @Yamiche 's [question to Trump about others calling #covid19 "Kung Flu"] was a trivial and invalid point

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@ShaneHarding: as long as people enable @maggieNYT & @Yamiche "silly" clickbait, they'll keep doing it. Take the gloves off. Demand they really press Trump officials on how many masks by which date, etc. When they don't do that, help me destroy their careers.

.@mrfphd: @Yamiche asks weak questions knowing those like @tomcolicchio will hype her clickbait. She gets clicks, he gets RTs, & Trump continues to skate. Help make the next month clickbait-free. Demand leaders ask Trump officials *tough, specific* questions. Or discredit them.

MT @Yamiche I just asked Sen Harris about her exchange with Senator Warren over shutting down Pres Trump’s Twitter account. Warren said she wouldn’t back the idea and Harris told me it is critical to shut down Trump’s account and she urges “all” candidates to get behind that idea

From @24aheaddotcom_
.@CarynLonz: Twitter admits to censoring 3 million people around the world. Even a few minutes would show that they heavily censor libs replying to Trump officials (not just cons). No lib reporter dares mention that (I've asked) because they support it to avoid dissent.

What a worthless parasite you are. Learn to be a real reporter & ask tough questions. And, no, what you think of as "tough" aren't. RT @Yamiche [from Jun 26, 2019] It's been like 10 minutes and I am still thinking about Beto speaking Spanish and Cory Booker's face.

.@mathias_venita: Trump won because those like @Yamiche never asked him or his proxies tough questions about the huge flaws in his policies. Help destroy their careers by discrediting them to their base to prevent Trump winning again.
