The Damage Report: July 8, 2020

Trump doesn’t understand why America can’t entirely reopen schools. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report.

The coronavirus pandemic is again rearing out of control, rising in a majority of states as a new warning comes that more than 200,000 Americans could be dead by Election Day. The United States on Tuesday recorded 60,021 new cases of the virus, a new single day record. But Trump barreled forward anyway, failing to offer detailed proposals or planning on the imminent question of how schools could open safely as soon as next month even as he admitted he intended to crank up pressure on governors to do what he wants. "I would say that when we talk about the fall, that seems like a long time. It's a long time," Trump said in an interview Tuesday with Nexstar Media Group. Trump on Wednesday tried to point to some other countries' ability to open their schools as evidence the US must do the same, but he is neglecting the fact that they all wrangled the pandemic through public health measures he's not pushing." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

All survived, but the fiery crash left Duckworth a double amputee and later the recipient of a Purple Heart. Since then, Duckworth has gone on to an impressive, even extraordinary career, first serving in the House of Representatives after being elected from her Illinois district in 2012 and then moving up to the U.S. Senate four years later, winning the seat once held by Barack Obama. As Rebecca Johnson wrote in a Vogue profile two years ago, “There are so many firsts attached to Tammy Duckworth—she’s the Senate’s first member to give birth while in office, its first member born in Thailand (to an American father and a Thai mother of Chinese descent), and, of course, its first female amputee.” More recently, Duckworth has made the short list of potential running mates for Joe Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee for president." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

COVID projections predict a dark future for the United States in the coming months. What can you do to protect yourself? John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report.

But if 95% of the population wears a mask in public, that number would drop to approximately 162,808, the university’s Institute for Health Metrics and Evaluation (IHME) said Tuesday. Last week, the IHME forecasted about 175,168 total deaths by October 1, based on the current scenario. But if almost everyone wears a face mask, that number would fall to just over 150,000. How the modeling works: The current model includes forecasts that anticipate the re-imposition of strong social distancing mandates when deaths per day reach a level of eight per one million people, combined with widespread mask adoption, versus an approach that takes no preventive action. For instance, strong social distancing measures in Florida could cut 6,173 deaths there by October 1." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
Trump’s absurd decision to leave WHO pushes the United States further into isolation, when the US needs help now more than ever. John Iadarola and Jayar Jackson break it down on The Damage Report.

The move was announced to WHO on Monday and comes as more than 539,000 people around the world have died of the coronavirus, including more than 130,000 in the U.S., where the number of Covid-19 cases has been climbing for weeks. Countries are officially required to give WHO one year's notice before formally leaving the organization, which counts the U.S. as its largest funder. The U.S. contributed $426 million per year in recent years and currently owes WHO more than $200 million in dues for 2020. The U.S. State Department did not indicate on Tuesday whether the government plans to pay its debt to the organization as it leads the global response to the coronavirus pandemic." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks

Now, you may have thought this was a debate that we settled conclusively in the 19th century when we banned 8-year-olds from working in factories and sent them to school. Parents are certainly onboard with that. They want their kids back in the classrooms in September, every poll shows that. Most kids and most teachers probably feel the same way. So, who is opposed to opening schools? Take a guess. The teachers unions. The teachers' union on every question is always the same. They would like less work, no accountability and much more pay. At least one chapter of the American Federation of Teachers is planning to go on strike if they have to work this fall. So many administrations and school districts have no choice but to obey their demands." #TheDamageReport #JohnIadarola #TheYoungTurks
