This is so sad Well Mr. Mayor you had better get more even if you have to beg from Trump for more. 😢😢😢😢😢🙏🇨🇦❤️ But ammunition forever...Time to rethink your priorities America.🤔 I hate to be a cynical, but haven't we been hearing that NY had only enough medical supplies and equipment to last a few days, for a few weeks now? Maybe i'm wrong...
ur staff said it was safe to use subways and restaurants Why did the virus take off? Longer it takes to say it the worse it w hurt people.... De Blasio was unprepared and mismanaged the City for years. The corrupt media refuses to tackle that story and prefers to focus on Cuomo and Trump. 2 weeks ago this buffoon was telling people they should be going about their usual business and taking trips to China town.
Well. I'll say it. America has become the very country Trump and MAGAs have been complaining about for the last 4 years. A shethole country. This dude loves putting his people into panic mode what was he gazing at? TRUMP SENT 18 TONS OF PPE TO CHINA IN FEBRUARY! Stop it!! Trump is suggesting that people are stealing PPE! He’s such a Mormon!
Just the media fueling the lies... orange man bad... whaa whaa whaaa... we already know this is false. Just like Puerto Rico and their missing supplies NYCMayor says that every week Talk to NYGovCuomo He admitted that he's hoarding all sorts of these goodies 'The point is, we have [30,000] ventilators in a stockpile and we didn’t send them to the hospital yet. Of course we didn’t . . .' said the hoarder
Ask Cuomo where the rest are HydroxychloroquineAndAzythromyacinSaveLives The big question is why? Everyone knew this was coming 2 weeks ago. If you knew it you should have started the isolation a month ago. Well Canada sent all theirs to Chi-na Didn't they say that last week 🤔 😢 The media just goes on and on about the Wahun virus,is there no sanity to the news? The world is not ending.
Bill de Blasio? This dude? He wouldn’t have a clue? I like the clip of 3 different months leading up to this and even 2 weeks ago telling all his citizens to live life normally! Wonder how that is working out? Mayor took a wild guess... what a joke! You have no idea what you will need for tomorrow let alone seven days worth! Enough of the bs and let’s get real!
Not as bad as Canada where the dumbass that masquerades as our PM shipped them all to a foreign country at the start of the pandemic. fogetaboutit FredosLittleFriend Not even enough for only 7 days?!
