  • Boeing CEO Dave Calhoun told NBC News he believes a major U.S. carrier will go out of business this year.
  • “Yes, most likely. You know, something will happen when September comes around,” Calhoun said, in an NBC interview that will air on Tuesday.
  • In response to Calhoun’s comment, Boeing spokesman Gordon Johndroe said: “He was speaking to the general uncertainty in the sector, not about any one particular airline.”

Before Trump World, people could agree on facts but differ on how to deal with the issues. With the radical right wing propaganda put forth by Trump supporters every day of the week, facts are no longer relevant in their world.

Not the accusation you brought up. That was about African nations .... as thoroughly and factually pointed out to!

 

Relative to China, when Trump insultingly labeled the Coronavirus the "Chinese Virus", THAT insult was called  "racist".

 

 

Believe what you want

That would be facts.

 

 

.... I am done with you on this subject!

Yup .... Attempting to repudiate facts by using Fox News is like attempting to use manure as a perfume!

My post proved KidBoy's claim about Nancy Pelosi was completely FALSE. Instead of defending his position, KidBoy made his response personal. 

 

Come on KidBoy, for once trying using FACTS, please document your allegation against Nancy Pelosi.

 

For the rest of America who wants the truth, Nancy Pelosi was complaining about the AFRICAN countries Trump added to his travel restrictions back in January. Contrary to what KidBoy claimed, using Fox as his source, she did NOT complain about the China Travel restrictions.

After attacking Trump's coronavirus-related China travel ban as xenophobic, Dems and media have changed tune

Within hours of President Trump's decision to restrict travel from China on Jan. 31, top Democrats and media figures immediately derided the move as unnecessary and xenophobic -- and they are now beating a hasty retreat from that position as the coronavirus continues to ravage the economy and cause scores of deaths

We know Kidboy2 watches Fox 7 days a week and believes everything they tell him. He doesn't realize Fox is a Propaganda Network. The article Kidboy listed was a Fox opinion/propaganda piece which completely distorted what Pelosi and the Dems said. 

 

They weren't complaining about the travel restrictions for China, they were complaining about the list of AFRICAN countries Trump put on his list. Please note that Denmark, Sweden, and Norway weren't on his list. Read what really happened below.

 

Speaker Nancy Pelosi ripped Trump's expanded travel ban after he included six other countries to the list of those that will face increased travel restrictions. “The Trump Administration’s expansion of its outrageous, un-American travel ban threatens our security, our values and the rule of law. The sweeping rule, barring more than 350 million individuals from predominantly African nations from traveling to the United States, is discrimination disguised as policy,” said Pelosi'

 

“With this latest callous decision, the President has doubled down on his cruelty and further undermined our global leadership, our Constitution and our proud heritage as a nation of immigrants,” she added. 

 

The statement comes after the Trump administration announce it would restrict the ability of immigrants from Nigeria, Myanmar, Eritrea, Kyrgyzstan, Sudan and Tanzania to get certain immigration visas. Friday’s proclamation will suspend immigrant visas for nationals of Kyrgyzstan, Myanmar, Eritrea, Nigeria.

The China travel ban on some from China had no effect on the virus period. The virus was in this country from late Dec. or early Jan. The first death now confirmed was in Jan. in the SF area. The virus was in France from at least Dec as they now know they treated someone for the virus in early Jan who would have gotten the virus in Dec. FOX NEWS as always is wrong.
