NYC is cancelling Trump's contracts with the city to operate the two ice rinks and the carousel in Central Park, as well as a golf course in the Bronx.

About time.
great work by nyc,  hows the vaccine rollout going ? I see cuomo saying we need to open up or there will be nothing left to open recently big change of tune there .

What does Trump contracts (a city issue) have to do with the vaccine (a state issue)?

Vaccination program, off to a fairly slow start like everywhere, has moved on to "phase 1B" and they are getting a bunch of new sites opened to allow people to get it. Think they passed half a million doses administered at the weekend.

His "reopening" comments appear to be based on the realization that the vaccination program is going to take most of the year, so they're trying to ramp up testing even more to facilitate loosening restrictions. Getting a test has not been a problem here, unlike many other places. However, you often did have to queue for a couple of hours, so extra capacity would obviously make things easier.

Was looking to head to New York in October... how far on would the vaccine program be?
Anything I post is not the view of the County Board!! Nobody died in the making of this post ;-)

Should be good to go

I’m low risk and am looking at Summer before I get it

If 55% are vaccinated, “herd mentality” begins to kick in

100%. Even Liz Cheney is ready to stick the knife in.

Question is whether the Senate will convict.

Word is that McConnell is willing to vote for removal (to get started on removing the Trump cancer from the party) but will not bring the Senate back early. If Schumer is allowed to run the trial AFTER Trump is gone from office, then he may very well be convicted if enough Republicans follow McConnell (and this assumes the reports about McConnell are true. I haven't seen any denial yet).

f**king hope it will be well on!

As whitey says, they should at least be well on the way to herd immunity by then.

DeBlasio was hoping to get one million/month vaccinated, once things get moving. IF (big if) they achieve that rate, then you'd be looking at the city completing its program around September/October.

So what do you think the appropriate response is to what Trump did?

One term.

Lost popular vote twice.

Lost the WH, the House and the Senate in the space of two years.

Ripped tiny children out of their parents arms and shipped them across the country.

Praised the mob who invaded the Capitol building, hunting for the VP and the Speaker of the House, resulting in the death of five people.

Impeached twice.

Worst president ever.

Without a doubt the worst ever president. Fair play to the 10 Republicans that voted yes to get him impeached.
