Elizabeth Warren is ending her presidential campaign

This is too bad but not surprising. If you finish third in your own state then it’s pretty much over. I’m proud of the campaign she ran though and am happy that she is still in the Senate.

(CNN)Elizabeth Warren is dropping out of the presidential race, a source familiar with her plans tells CNN, following another round of disappointing finishes in primary contests across the country on Super Tuesday.
The Massachusetts senator, who centered her bid on a promise to wipe out corruption in Washington, is announcing her decision on a staff call Thursday morning.
Warren’s path to the nomination has been narrowing since the first round of voting in Iowa, where she placed third. In subsequent contests in New Hampshire and Nevada, she dropped down to fourth. In South Carolina, she came in a distant fifth.
The New York Times first reported that Warren is exiting the race.

Trump argues 3.4% death rate from coronavirus is ‘false,’ citing a ‘hunch’ in claiming it’s far lower

He really is just the most dangerous person in the world right now. He only cares about himself and he thinks that his lies will keep the stock market afloat which will give him an easy 2nd term (and maybe more than two!)

President Donald Trump on Wednesday night disputed the latest official death rate of 3.4% from the novel coronavirus, telling the Fox New host Sean Hannity that his “hunch” was that the true number was “a fraction of 1%.”

“Well, I think the 3.4% is really a false number,” Trump said. “Now, this is just my hunch, but based on a lot of conversations with a lot of people who do this, because a lot of people will have this and it’s very mild. They’ll get better very rapidly. They don’t even see a doctor.”

The 3.4% figure, cited this week by the World Health Organization, was reached using the latest number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths. It was an increase from 2% previously and is likely to change further.
