I know nothing about Susan Sarandon so I googled and found this:

In an interview with Variety, Sarandon claimed that Trump inspired women and people of color to run for office to combat his policies.

In the two-minute-long clip, the interviewer asks Sarandon what "grade" she would give Trump for his performance in the Oval Office. "I'd tell him to start all over again," Sarandon responded, before suggesting the current state of politics has encouraged more women and people of color to run for office. However, she does not draw that connection to Trump or credit the president directly.

Sarandon starts by pointing out that the political stage had been set for Trump to rise to power. "I mean in all fairness to Trump, this stuff was all laid in place over the last twelve years. I mean this didn't just suddenly happen," she said.

"Democrats were losing thousands and thousands of seats and all these things were put in place, people were being deported, and there was many, many wars," Sarandon noted. "But he is so bumbling, and he is soÖ he's like a character out of a cartoon or something, that you can't not be aware of what's going on now.

"And Bernie Sanders proved you can run without taking dark money, without taking PAC money, and so you're seeing an enormous amount of people that are using that, and are running and winning! And so many women in primaries, and now we've got more elections coming.

"Those people, you never saw that population running. So many women, I think like 40 percent more women are running for office and becoming elected. We're on the verge of having the Governors of Florida, Georgia, and Maryland be people of color and one woman. This is a revolution," Sarandon said.

After the interview was shared on social media earlier this week, Messing and other celebrities publicly voiced their frustration and anger at Sarandon's comments.

"STFU SUSAN. Oh yes, PLEASE let's give Trump CREDIT. I mean how else are you able to walk out on the street. Convince yourself that that this CATASTROPHE of a President who you said was better than HRC IS NOT ripping children away from parents seeking asylum, holding children," Messing tweeted, alongside a link to the Variety video.

Kansas governor's decision to close all schools sees GOP pushback

Kansas GOP lawmakers on Wednesday moved to limit their Democratic governorís emergency powers during the coronavirus pandemic, arguing that they are an overreaction that is fueling panic and an unnecessary intrusion into peopleís lives.

The pushback came after Gov. Laura Kelly announced Tuesday that all public schools will be closed for the remainder of the school year and classes will be held remotely to curb the spread of the coronavirus.

Conservative critics have suggested that Kelly's actions suggest she might go after firearms and try to limit their sale.


Recovering COVID-19 patient describes what it was like to have the virus (kids just wana have fun)

David Anzarouth knew it could happen to anyone but never thought it would happen to him.

The fit 25-year-old living in Toronto didn't worry about taking his vacation to South Beach in Miami, Fla., in early March.

But 10 days later, he found himself sitting in an isolated emergency room at Toronto General Hospital, wearing a mask and feeling "the most incredible pain that I've ever experienced" as he was tested for COVID-19.

A day later, the former McMaster University student learned he was infected with the virus that has led to massive disruptions in Canada and around the world as governments scramble to limit its impact.

"I can't put into words how different this feels than anything I've ever experienced before," Anzarouth told CBC News.

White Evangelicals Largely Approve Of How Trump Is Handling The Coronavirus

Despite the presidentís lies and initial skepticism about the crisis, most white evangelical Christians strongly approve of what heís done.

Even when faced with plague and pestilence, white evangelicals are placing their hopes in President Donald Trump.

About 7 in 10 white evangelical Christians approve of the way Trump is handling issues related to the coronavirus outbreak, including 52% who strongly approve of his performance, according to a new HuffPost/YouGov poll conducted over the weekend.

In contrast, only 45% of all American adults surveyed said they strongly or somewhat approve of how Trump is handling the outbreak.

Seventy percent of white evangelicals also approve of the way the U.S. government is managing the outbreak. Only 47% of all respondents surveyed said the same.



Nine days ago, Fox News host Sean Hannity said coronavirus was a "hoax" to "bludgeon Trump with."

Last night, Hannity denied he ever called the virus a "hoax."

I'd rather be on a "ventilator train"
