Steve Forbes says coronavirus hit US economy like ‘a sledgehammer’

Steve Forbes, chairman and editor-in-chief of Forbes Media, reacted Friday on “The Ingraham Angle” to U.S. unemployment climbing as coronavirus spreads and its effects on the economy if the shutdown continues.

“[The] devastation is going to be very real. You’ve already saw in that 10 million [unemployment] number in the last two weeks. That’s going to get worse,” Forbes told host Laura Ingraham. “In effect, we’ve done the economic equivalent of a medical shutdown of the economy — a coma, induced coma.”

Forbes called for ramped up testing in order to help the economy.

“So this gets to where economics and health care intertwine, and that is we have to massively step up the testing. For example, [Abbot] laboratories, has a test that can tell you in five or fifteen minutes whether you have this horrific disease,” Forbes said. “They’ve only produced 5000 kits. They should be producing 50,000 a day. They should be licensing and the government should push them to do it. Other manufacturers we should be doing not 100,000 tests a day for a country our size, experts tell me we should be doing at least 500,000 a day to find out who already has immunities.”

“We’ve got to do massive testing so by the end of April we can have large parts of this economy starting to function again,” Forbes added.

Forbes argued that another stimulus won’t fix the problem and that the economy needs time to recover.

“If you take a sledgehammer to the American economy, it’s going to take time to bring it back. It’ll recover quickly,” Forbes said. “As long as we have a benign environment which gets to the election, hopefully next year we’ll have that benign environment. Then you’ll really see things really start to turn.”

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, R-Calif., told “Hannity” Friday that fewer American workers likely would have been affected by economic restrictions imposed in response to the coronavirus pandemic had Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., not held up the passage of last week’s coronavirus aid bill.

“I wondered when I saw … this week that six million more Americans lost their jobs, ‘How many of them could have kept their job had Nancy Pelosi not held this up?'” McCarthy asked.

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK STATE-BY-STATE

“Today when we took out [loans] for small business … $5 billion got processed for small business today,” McCarthy said. “That could have been [done] a week ago had Nancy Pelosi not held this up.”

McCarthy also that Trump’s action in late January to restrict travel to the U.S. from China has saved “millions of lives.”

“What we need to be focused on right now is the health of the American public, and what you’re watching … what the president is doing is he’s taken leadership day in and day out to make that happen.

“We need to be working together, unlike what Speaker Pelosi is doing … She needs to focus on helping.”

Distributed Bio co-founder and CEO Dr. Jacob Glanville joined “Tucker Carlson Tonight” Friday to talk about his company’s laboratory engineering a therapeutic antibody to combat the coronavirus.

“So what we have done is we’ve engineered neutralizing antibodies that go and block the virus. The coronavirus, if you were to zoom in on it, you would see a series, a ring of spikes, and it uses those spikes to invade human cells,” Glanville said. “We’ve identified a series of super potent antibodies that block those spikes and therefore make the virus no longer infectious.”

Glanville explained the power of antibodies, saying it helped during the Ebola epidemic.

“This is the thing that turned the tide against Ebola. The Ebola used to be a death sentence, about 50 percent mortality rate,” Glanville said. “And then once a good antibody neutralizing solution was made, then I think 94 percent of people can walk away.”

“So that transformed Ebola from a dangerous crisis to a manageable treatment,” Glanville added.

The doctor also spoke about the advantages of antibodies over vaccines.

“We’ve also got antibodies to treat rabies. We’ve got antibodies to treat RSV in babies. Antibodies are used to for anti-venom. So this is extremely well-established platform technology. It has the advantage,” Glanville said. “You can produce antibodies much faster than you can make a vaccine. And as I’d heard you mentioned previously on all that modeling, every day counts. We’re venting an incredible amount of money out of our economy and risking lives. And so you want to have a medicine as quickly as possible.”

CORONAVIRUS CASES STATE BY STATE

Glanville outlined the process, hoping to go toward human trial this summer.

“Our next move is we hand this off to the U.S. military, a consortium from the Gates Foundation and some private groups. And all of them are going to test the potency of neutralization of our therapeutic. We’re also working with Charles River Laboratories that runs safety and talks to make sure the stuff safe to put into people,” Glanville said. “And we’re going to go into a scaled up manufacturer. So at that point, what you do as you do a phase one last two human trial, and that’s we’re aiming to do that towards the end of the summer around August.”

WH trade adviser slams 3M for ‘acting like a sovereign nation’: ‘Stop whining’ and make masks for Americans

White House Trade Adviser Peter Navarro accused U.S. manufacturing conglomerate 3M Friday of “whining” about criticism from President Trump over its distribution of N95 masks amid the coronavirus pandemic.

“Let me just say that 3M needs to stop whining and just produce masks and get them to the American people,” Navarro told “Tucker Carlson Tonight.

“I’ve been dealing with hundreds of CEOs on the front lines here [of] President Trump’s war against the virus,” Navarro added, “and 3M has been doing nothing but dissembling, he can’t get any data out of them.”

CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, STATE-BY-STATE

Minnesota-based 3M has come under fire for exporting U.S.-made masks and other protective equipement to Canada and Latin America. On Thursday, President Trump invoked the Defense Production Act to order 3M to prioritize orders of N95 masks for the federal government’s national stockpile.

“We’re not happy with 3M, we’re not happy and the people that dealt with it directly are not at all happy with 3M,” Trump said during the White House coronavirus task force briefing earlier Friday.

3M CEO Mike Roman told Fox Business Network’s “Maria Bartiromo’s Wall Street” Friday that the company sells its respirators “through authorized distributors and we sell directly to governments and the distributors take those to customers that have the greatest needs and we’ve been working with FEMA in the U.S. to make sure we are prioritizing those with the greatest need … A small percentage, less than 10 percent of our respirators in the United States are exported to Canada and Latin America to support their health care workers. We are often the sole provider of those respirators in those countries.”

“As we’ve been telling the administration for days and days,” Roman added, “We’re happy to ship our overseas production to the U.S. However, there are consequences on a humanitarian level and that includes stopping exports to Canada and Latin America.”

WH WEIGHS CRACKDOWN ON COMPANIES EXPORTING CRITICAL MEDICAL SUPPLIES

Navarro accused 3M of “acting like a sovereign nation” and said the company’s public relations department “thinks it’s the State Department.”

He said that U.S. companies will and should continue to export goods, but added that 3M brass have to stop “whining and spinning” and work on behalf of the American people.

“We don’t have the hours, much less the minutes to deal with them,” said Navarro, in response to which host Tucker Carlson remarked endearingly that the trade adviser continues to be “the most blatant public official in government.”

U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Jerome Adams spoke with Sean Hannity Friday to discuss the Trump administration’s plan to stop the spread of coronavirus and the confusion over masks.

“It’s important for the American people to know that the task force always makes recommendations based on the science, and the science originally told us that people who wear a mask are not protecting themselves from the virus,” Adams said on “Hannity.” “We actually recommend that people who have symptoms or people who think they may have a disease to wear a mask so they don’t spread it to others.”

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT TO KNOW

Adams explained to Hannity what has changed recently that made the task force change course on their facial-covering recommendation.

“What’s changed is we found that there are a significant number of people who have asymptomatic spread of the virus. And so the CDC changed its recommendations today,” Adams explained. “And they now suggest that the general public consider wearing masks when they’re going out in public so as not to spread disease to other people, particularly in situations where they may be closer than six feet from each other.”

The doctor made it clear that the facial-covering recommendation does not replace social distancing.

“A couple of really important points that I want you to know. Number one, this does not replace social distancing. The most important thing to do is still to stay home,” Adams said. “If you’re going to wear a facial covering, please make sure you don’t touch your face and that you wash your hands so you weren’t contaminating yourself.”

Adams also told people to leave N95 and surgical masks to the health care professional.

“They need them to take care of high-risk patients. A cloth facial covering is what the CDC recommends,” Adams said. “That works just fine to protect other people from you. Because we’re all in this together.”

Bret Baier on possible national lockdown: Trump ‘is balancing out basically a nuclear bomb on the U.S. economy’

Westlake Legal Group image Bret Baier on possible national lockdown: Trump 'is balancing out basically a nuclear bomb on the U.S. economy' Victor Garcia fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/health/infectious-disease/coronavirus fox news fnc/media fnc article 6a38d7d4-b0d5-5d3b-aa45-7804296d29a2

Tucker Carlson invited “Special Report” anchor Bret Baier on Friday night to discuss the possibility of a federal lockdown to combat the coronavirus pandemic, with the host calling that type of a measure “extreme.”

“I do think that the president is leaning towards letting the governors in this federal society decide these, make these decisions on ‘shelter-in-place’ rules. And as you mentioned, he is balancing out basically a nuclear bomb on the U.S. economy,” Baier said on “Tucker Carlson Tonight.” “The U.S. Chamber of Commerce — and you can say what you want about the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the data that it puts out — but [it] said that one in four small businesses is either closed or … teetering on closing. You have efforts to salvage these things, but for another month alone, let alone talk about a year.”

SCIENTISTS OFFER HOPEFUL NEWS ON COVID-19 VACCINE BASED ON VIRUS’ MUTATION RATE

“You’re talking about major devastation, the economy, and that is a policy decision that goes beyond the medical decision,” Baier added.

Carlson earlier commended White House coronavirus task force member Dr. Anthony Fauci for his work and his record, but the host questioned whether or not the idea of a national lockdown was an extreme measure.

“I don’t understand why that’s not happening,” Fauci said on CNN Thursday night of the national lockdown.

Baier noted that Fauci was open to different areas of the country having different restrictions than hot spots like New York before commenting on the impact of the data.

“When pressed on it, experts say the models are only as good as the data you put in, right. So the data that they’re getting from Spain and Italy and these countries all abroad,” Baier said. “And now here in New York and New Orleans and Washington, they’re putting that in. It could change that curve. And once you start going down, maybe it changes the trajectory.”

CNN’s Jim Acosta blasted for ‘mansplaining’ after interrupting Dr. Birx to attack Trump

CNN chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta was widely blasted for interrupting Dr. Deborah Birx during Friday’s coronavirus briefing to attack President Trump.

Birx took a moment at the podium to address the “who knew what when” concerns and said all the countries affected by the pandemic can “look back” to develop a timeline but not while “in the middle” of the crisis.

“We can talk about why didn’t Italy do something or Spain do something or Germany do something, or we can really say right now — we all can do something,” Dr. Birx explained. “We can do the social distancing and all of the pieces that we know is starting to work around the globe in country after country. And then when we get through all of this, we can ask the questions about could we have done some piece of this better as a global community.”

She then pivoted to the apparent errors the World Health Organization (WHO) made leading up to the outbreak in the U.S. as something that should be examined.

“I will remind you that on February 3rd, the head of the WHO said there was no reason to ever do a travel ban,” Dr. Birx continued. “It wasn’t until January 14th that we knew that there was human-to-human transmission,”

Acosta quickly derailed her observations about WHO to knock President Trump.

“Dr. Birx, the president was saying this was going to go away,” Acosta said. “It’s April.”

“It is going to go away,” President Trump fired back. “I said it was going away and it is going away.”

TRUMP RIPS CBS REPORTER OVER QUESTION ON KUSHNER’S STOCKPILE REMARKS: ‘YOU OUGHT TO BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF’

Many took to social media to blast the reporter.

“Jim Acosta’s interruption of Dr. Birx is an example of how CNN’s echo-journalism model is destroying the media’s credibility,” George Washington University Law professor Jonathan Turley reacted. “Every question from Acosta is an effort to score points rather than elicit information. It is a press pandemic that continues to rage without relief.”

Some accused Acosta of attempting to “mansplain” to the female medical expert.

“‘Dear Diary: While I’m no expert, I tried #Mansplaining to an expert medical expert named Dr. Birx. @Acosta,'” former CNN commentator Paris Dennard quipped.

“@Acosta just tried to mansplain to Dr. Birx,” GOP national spokeswoman Elizabeth Harrington tweeted.

Others pointed out how Acosta interrupted Dr. Birx as she was being critical of WHO, who critics have accused of shielding China amid the outbreak.

“Of course Acosta interrupted Birx as she was making an interesting comment about WHO,” Daily Caller reporter Chuck Ross said.

However, her is even criticized among his White House press corps colleagues. In his new book, ABC News correspondent Jonathan Karl knocked his CNN counterpart, accusing him of “playing into the explicit Trump strategy of portraying the press as the opposition party.”

“The surest way to undermine the credibility of the White House press corps is to behave like the political opposition,” Karl wrote. “Don’t give speeches from the White House briefing room.”

Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., called on President Trump Friday to demand that Chinese President Xi Jinping “crack down” on his country’s notorious “wet markets,” where exotic animals are sold, butchered and cooked for human consumption.

Graham told “The Story” on Friday that up to three recent pandemics have originated from animal-to-human transmission in China, and are most likely from the markets.

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE STATE-BY-STATE

“Sixteen percent of all deaths in the world are infectious diseases and about 60 percent of them come from animal to human transmission,” Graham said. ” … People eat cats and dogs throughout the world as part of their diet: We need to stop that. It’s the 21st century.”

Host Martha MacCallum also noted the presence of a laboratory that purpotedly researches viruses in bats within 300 yards of the wet market in Wuhan.

“What I would tell President Trump is to call President Xi and say ‘Listen, you just reopened the wet market in Wuhan where we believe this all came from. Crack down on exotic animals in these wet markets where they contaminate the food supply and human beings’,” he said.

Graham continued: “Bats carry [contagions], stop eating bats.”

MacCallum also asked Graham about recent comments by Dr. Michael Ryan, an Irish epidemiologist who is also the executive director of the World Health Organization’s health emergencies program, in which he stated that people must be careful not to “profile certain types of the world as being uncooperative or not transparent.”

“We need to be balanced in this and we need to recognize that systems under pressure find it hard to share everything on Earth on a minute-to-minute basis,” Ryan said.

Graham called Ryan’s comments “ridiculous” in regard to China, which he said has a “pattern of withholding data from their own citizens.”

“They underreported this,” he said of Xi’s government.

President Trump had a tense exchange with CBS News White House correspondent Weijia Jiang during Friday’s White House coronavirus task force briefing over a question regarding remarks made Thursday by White House senior adviser Jared Kushner.

Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, had commented on the nation’s stockpile of medical supplies.

THE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK, STATE-BY-STATE

“The notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile. It’s not supposed to be states’ stockpiles that they then use,” Kushner told reporters. “So we’re encouraging the states to make sure that they’re assessing the needs, they’re getting the data from their local situations, and then trying to fill it with the supplies that we’ve given them.”

“Yesterday, Jared Kushner said the notion of the federal stockpile was ‘it’s supposed to be our stockpile, it’s not supposed to be states stockpiles that they then use.’ What did he mean by ‘our?'” Jiang asked Trump Friday.”Why are you asking,” Trump dismissed the question. “What’s that, a gotcha? ‘I gotcha. He used the word our.’ You know what ‘our’ means? The United States of America, that’s what it means.”

“So that means the states,” Jiang followed.

“Our, our! It means the United States of America and then we take that ‘our’ and then we distribute it to the states,” Trump responded.

Jiang then pressed Trump was to why Kushner, the president’s son-in-law, said “‘it’s not supposed to be state stockpiles that they then use.'”

“To keep for our country,” Trump told Jiang. “The federal government needs it too, not just the states. But out of that, we oftentimes choose. As an example, we have almost 10,000 ventilators and we are ready to rock with those ventilators. We’re going to bring them to various areas of the country that need them.

“But when he says ‘our,’ he’s talking about our country,” Trump want on. ” … He’s talking about the federal government. I mean it’s such a basic simple question and you try to make it sound so bad. You ought to be ashamed of yourself. You know- you ought to be ashamed. It’s just a simple question.”

Jiang insisted she wasn’t trying to make the question sound “bad,” but Trump doubled down, “He said ‘our’ and ‘our’ means for the country. And our means for the states because the states are part of the country. Don’t make it sound bad, don’t make it sound bad.”

As the president was moving on to another reporter, Jiang pointed to language on the Department of Health and Human Services website that she said aligned with Kushner’s rhetoric and told Trump the president that he hadn’t answered her question.

“You just asked your question, you just asked your question in a very nasty tone,” Trump scolded Jiang. “I gave you a perfect answer.”

CNN anchor Brooke Baldwin told her social media followers on Friday that she had tested positive for the coronavirus but expected to be back on television “real soon.”

“I’ve tested positive for coronavirus. I am OKAY. It came on suddenly yesterday afternoon,” the “CNN Newsroom” anchor said in an Instagram post.

“Chills, aches, fever. I’ve been social distancing. Doing ALL the things we’re being told to do. Still — it got me. I’m healthy … no underlying conditions … Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones. I look forward to being back on [television] and seeing you real soon,” she added, using a television emoji.

CORONAVIRUS: WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW

“And shout out to the doctors and nurses who are doing the real work right now,” Baldwin said.

Baldwin’s CNN colleague, Chris Cuomo, tested positive for the virus earlier this week and experienced symptoms like fever and chills.

“In these difficult times that seem to get more difficult and complicated by the day, I just found out that I am positive for coronavirus,” Cuomo tweeted Monday.

“I have been exposed to people in recent days who have subsequently tested positive and I had fever, chills and shortness of breath. I just hope I didn’t give it to the kids and [wife] Cristina,” he added. “That would make me feel worse than the illness!”
