"A senior adviser told the outlet: 'There’s a thought that we need to shift to be much more cohesive in terms of a message of healing, rebuilding, restoring, recovering...a theme that goes w/ Covid & the economy & the race stuff.'"
"The race stuff?!"
I have excellent news, my friends.
They got him!
"Maryland-National Capital Park Police have identified the suspect in the Capital Crescent Trail attack as Anthony Brennan III, 60, of Kensington, Maryland.
Police charged Brennan with three counts of second-degree assault. Each count carries up to 10 years in prison." (via ABC News)
If he had been white, they would have talked him down, gotten him some coffee& thrown him in the drunk tank for the night. Instead, they used deadly force on a man who was likely frightened& disoriented. Just because he was black.😡 😞
They keep changing their stories on what happened, who ordered it& why.
One thing is undeniable. This entire incident was a colossal clusterfk.
22 states are not flattening the curve and Texas is suffering its highest daily infection rates since the crisis began. ICU beds are no longer available in Arizona.
This is the result of inconsistent and erratic messaging from the White House
"The cognitive dissonance and the distortion of reality is mind-numbing"
The Southern states which played down or disregarded scientific advice, are failing their citizens:
"Covid-19 hospitalizations are rising in Arizona, the Carolinas, Utah, Arkansas, Texas, Tennessee, and perhaps Florida.
Those states are also seeing higher numbers of positive Covid-19 tests, as well as increases in the percentage of tests that come back positive."
We have to act now and not one of us can do it without the others.
I am on the side of life, the GOP isn't.
