WV Gov Jim Justice Gives Rambling Speech On Coronavirus (Itís Like a Scary Movie)
WFMD ^ | March 22, 2020

Posted on 03/22/2020 2:56:36 PM PDT by nickcarraway

West Virginia Gov. Jim Justice has a message about the coronavirus pandemic: It’s like a scary movie.

In an apparent attempt to sooth a nervous public, Justice, in a statewide address Saturday night, offered a rambling response to the virus in which he declined to order a broad lockdown, issued dire warnings about New York state, urged people to follow existing protocols and admitted that perhaps his speech could have waited until Monday.

“It’s like we’re all lost in a movie that we can’t relate to in any way,” he said during the roughly 25-minute address that left many on social media scratching their heads.

So did Governor Cuomo, and everyone was all oh he should be president! Well really more like Joe Andrew should get the nom, because Joe wandered out into the highway.

President Trump sadly it is time to restrict all traffic in and out of New York City and suburbs. The snake is moving again and sees New York as your Waterloo.

These idiots are so underprepared (mentally) to lead in a crisis, just like the entire Obama administration. They are bunch of academics impressed with their own titles, but when it comes down to it, they have no idea what/how to do. Morons. E.g., Obama Admin rollout ACA, Nagin in New Orleans, all of BO’s, Hillary’s, Kerry’s foreign policy, and all the advice Hussein got from Powers and Susan Rice. Absolute dolts.

The formula is easy for the MSM.

D after your name, and the talk was inspiring and showed courageous leadership.

R after your name, and the talk was incoherent and rambling and should no longer be broadcast.

The Obama Administration knew what had to be done after 2009, and they didn’t do a damn thing.

Just came back from WV.

Got some nitrile gloves from Tractor Supply.

There is some meat left at Food Lion.

No one is losing their sh*t.

“The Obama Administration knew what had to be done after 2009, and they didn’t do a damn thing.”

There is NO WAY the BO Administration could have done half of what Team Trump is doing. They were a blowhard straw man, a house of cards, built on the sand. Without the media propping them up they would have never lasted. What a joke.

I think West Virginia has fewer reported coronavirus cases than any other state. They actually had ZERO reported cases up until a few days ago.

There was a winner at Waterloo. You see Trump as Napoleon instead of Wellington?

That’s true, but Governor Andrew was definitely rambling. It was hilarious!

The guy has a point. The movie “Contagion” (now on Netflix) leaps to mind. I just watched it again — that was quite a different experience than watching it when there was no global China contagion. It’s like watching the trailer for what we’re seeing now.

“Bird Box” — that Netflix movie from a year or so ago, with Sandra Bullock — also comes to mind. There are no viruses involved — instead, it features super-natural ‘demons’, that will make you Epstein yourself, if seen. Instead of wearing masks over their nose and mouth, people wear blindfolds. Big differences — but, a similar effect. For thousands of years, people lived with a constant fear of dying from things they couldn’t see or understand.

I agree with that. Obama was and is lazy. In a crisis like this virus, he would freeze

There are only a few “big cities” in WV and that’s where it will hit.

The first case was damn near dead on the VA line, at Harper’s Ferry

Most of the few cases are either right near the biggest cities or right on the VA border.

ALL were “travel related”

Reminds me of elements of about dozen, or so, B Movie/SciFi movies from the 50’s.
Most involving fear of Aliens (which never actually happened but it scared the kids) and the Bomb scare (which never actually happened but it scared the kids).
Surreal.
