Senator Bernie Sanders used the country’s ongoing Coronavirus crisis to smear President Trump during Sunday night’s Democratic Debate; saying the Chief Executive has to “shut up” and stop “blabbering.”
“Well, the first thing we have got to do, whether or not I’m president, is to shut this president up right now” said Sanders. “Because he’s undermining the doctors and the scientists who are trying to help the American people, it is unacceptable for him to be blabbering with un-factual information, which is confusing the general public.”

The Centers for Disease Control issued a revised warning to the American people over the weekend; urging all citizens to avoid gatherings -both public and private- of more than 50 different people for the next eight weeks.
“If followed, the guidance — the strongest and most sweeping to date from the agency — will significantly increase the pandemic’s disruption to U.S. public life for the next two months. Governments worldwide are already making tough decisions aimed at keep their citizens safe,” reports the Washington Post.
“A slew of new states and cities, including Illinois, Washington state and New York City, have announced plans to close schools and severely restricted their nightlife by shuttering bars, restaurants and clubs, allowing takeout food only or cutting hours,” adds the newspaper.
The announcement comes just moments after New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio ordered the nation’s biggest metropolis to close all schools, restaurants, bars, night clubs, and theaters to stop the spread of the disease.
“Our lives are all changing in ways that were unimaginable just a week ago,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio.

“We are taking a series of actions that we never would have taken otherwise in an effort to save the lives of loved ones and our neighbors,” he added.
“This virus can spread rapidly through the close interactions New Yorkers have in restaurants, bars and places where we sit close together,” de Blasio’s statement said. “We have to break that cycle.”
