VIRUS UPDATE: US Unemployment Approaching Highest Rate Since Great Depression, 1 in 6 Out of Work

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.23.20

The unemployment rate in the United States is racing towards levels not seen since the Great Depression of the 1930s, with one in six Americans currently out of work since the Coronavirus outbreak began in March.

“More than 4.4 million laid-off Americans applied for unemployment benefits last week, the government said Thursday. In all, roughly 26 million people — the population of the 10 biggest U.S. cities combined — have now filed for jobless aid in five weeks, an epic collapse that has raised the stakes in the debate over how and when to ease the shutdowns of factories and other businesses,” reports the Associated Press.

“In the hardest-hit corner of the U.S., evidence emerged that perhaps more than 2 million New York state residents have been infected by the virus — several times higher than the number confirmed by lab tests,” adds the AP.

The Senate passed a bipartisan stimulus package earlier this week; the fourth in the last two months to help provide economic relief to small businesses and workers impacted by the illness.

A NEW LOW: MSNBC Analyst Claims Trump’s Coronavirus Response Constitutes ‘Involuntary Manslaughter’

posted by Hannity Staff - 4.07.20

MSNBC Legal Analyst Glenn Kirschner left millions of users on social media scratching their heads this week; baselessly asserting President Trump’s Coronavirus response could be prosecuted for “involuntary manslaughter.”

“Trump’s conduct easily satisfies all 3 elements of involuntary manslaughter. In fact, his gross negligence is beginning to look more like conduct evincing a ‘conscious disregard of an extreme risk of death/serious bodily injury = the standard for depraved heart/2nd degree murder,’” he posted on Twitter.

 

Ohio Democratic State Rep. Tavia Galonski took her party’s war against the White House to a new level this week; saying the President should be charged for “crimes against humanity” over his Coronavirus press briefings.

“I can’t take it anymore. I’ve been to The Hague. I’m making a referral for crimes against humanity tomorrow. Today’s press conference was the last straw. I know the need for a prosecution referral when I see one,” posted the legislator on social media.

 

“State Rep. Tavia Galonski tweeted Sunday after President Trump spoke about hydroxychloroquine at his daily press briefing. The drug, normally used to treat malaria, is one of several that the president has pointed to as showing promise in the fight against COVID-19, but its effectiveness has been a subject of debate,” reports Fox News.
