  • Because of how new it is,

  • scientists are still learning new things

  • about the coronavirus--

  • how you can catch it,

  • how you can spread it,

  • how you can hurt its feelings by saying it's just like the flu.

  • That one hits here. And now a new CDC study says

  • that coronavirus could be spreading

  • on the bottom of our shoes.

  • Except, of course, for Crocs.

  • Even coronavirus doesn't want to touch those.

  • But, yeah, this is real.

  • They say coronavirus could be spreading

  • on the bottom of our shoes.

  • So as a precaution, I would recommend

  • that everyone keep their shoes as clean as possible.

  • I'm talking black teenager levels.

  • That's how clean your sneakers should be.

  • Meanwhile, while some countries around the world have managed

  • to get coronavirus under control,

  • others who took too long to act are now struggling.

  • Russia is one of those countries.

  • And they're now dealing with a sudden surge of new cases.

  • In fact, it's gotten so bad

  • that president Vladimir Putin has openly admitted,

  • openly admitted that,

  • "We have a lot of problems,

  • and we don't have much to brag about."

  • And in my opinion, this is the biggest reason

  • we need to defeat coronavirus,

  • because not only is it killing people and destroying economies.

  • It's even making Vladimir Putin insecure.

  • Hell, he's even started covering up when he rides his horse.

  • It's just not the same.

  • Now, while Russia is dealing with its first outbreak,

  • South Korea might be dealing with part two.

  • Authorities in that country are now saying

  • that coronavirus has reactivated

  • in more than 100 patients

  • who had already tested negative for the virus.

  • And I'm sorry, guys, but this is bullshit.

  • They thought coronavirus was gone out of the people,

  • and now it's coming back?

  • How are you gonna do that, Corona? Huh?

  • How are you gonna come back for the sequel

  • before the first movie is even over?

  • This would be like Thanos popping up

  • during the first Iron Man, just like,

  • "Hey, it's me!"

  • "No, no. Don't you snap those fingers!

  • "Don't you snap those fingers!

  • "We still have to meet all the other Avengers before you.

  • "We got to meet, like, Black Panther and-and Thor.

  • "And I-I think there's, like, a... like a-a bee?

  • "Is it a bee or a termite, or the bow-and-arrow guy?

  • "He's, like, a fan, and he gets to tag along.

  • We're gonna meet a lot of people."

  • But you see, this is where the coronavirus messed up,

  • because if corona is trying to start up again,

  • that means we already know its moves. Yeah.

  • So this time, we're gonna protect Tom Hanks.

  • This time, we're gonna get the extra ventilators that we need.

  • And this time, I'm gonna kidnap my barber

  • before we get locked down so that I don't look

  • like I've been lost at sea for two years.

  • Look at me! Look at me!

  • All right, that's it for the headlines.

  • Let's get into our big story.

  • From the moment coronavirus started

  • to affect the United States, you could tell

  • that President Trump was deeply concerned

  • that this pandemic would hurt his ability

  • to brag about the economy.

  • And that's why, from the first day the country was shut down,

  • Trump has been asking one question--

  • "When can we open this mother(bleep) back up?"

  • CHUCK TODD: With nearly 17 million Americans

  • filing new unemployment claims in the last three weeks,

  • the president is eager to open the country again

  • for business by May 1.

  • I call it the "opening our country task force,"

  • or "opening our country council."

  • I'm gonna have to make a decision,

  • and I only hope to God

  • that it's the right decision.

  • But I would say, without question,

  • it's the biggest decision I've ever had to make.

  • Yes, the biggest decision

  • Trump has ever had to make.

  • Even bigger than when he had to decide

  • whether to abort Eric or let him finish high school.

  • Now, the president isn't wrong.

  • Figuring out when to open the country is

  • an extremely complicated decision, all right?

  • For one, experts have warned

  • that if the country is opened too soon,

  • we could experience a second wave of coronavirus

  • by July or even August.

  • Because corona might seem like it's finished,

  • but if we're not careful, all of a sudden,

  • it can come back even stronger, you know?

  • Think of coronavirus like...

  • like that one singer in a black church.

  • Was blind

  • But now I see. ♪

  • -Thank you so... -♪ Ooh-ooh, ooh-ooh-ooh. ♪

  • -Thank you. -♪ I see. ♪

  • ♪ I see. ♪

  • And here's another thing.

  • Medical experts have also warned that without sufficient testing,

  • it's hard to send everyone back into the world,

  • because you'll have no way to know who has the virus

  • and who's already immune.

  • And let's be honest. Right now,

  • America is still worse at testing

  • than Aunt Becky's kids.

  • Okay, now, one solution that is being looked at

  • by some countries is what's being called

  • "an immunity passport," which would allow people

  • who have already survived coronavirus

  • to move around freely.

  • And that's a pretty decent idea.

  • But the only concern is

  • that if people who've had corona can move around freely,

  • then some people might want to get the virus intentionally

  • so that they can also move around freely, all right?

  • And it makes sense.

  • It's the same way everyone rushes

  • to lose their virginity at prom

  • so that they get to hang out with the cool kids at college.

  • So there are a lot of things to consider here.

  • And President Trump-- he says

  • that he's gonna base his decision

  • to reopen the economy on

  • "a lot of facts and a lot of instincts, also."

  • This is the same guy whose instincts told him

  • to look directly into the sun during an eclipse.

  • "For all we know, it might give you superpowers.

  • "No one else has done it.

  • Have you ever asked why?"

  • Now on coronavirus specifically,

  • Trump's instincts have been wrong from the start.

  • In fact, yesterday, at his daily presser,

  • Trump was asked what he did to prepare for corona

  • during the month of February.

  • And he very angrily couldn't come up with an answer.

  • PAULA REID: The argument is that you bought yourself some time.

  • You didn't use it to prepare hospitals.

  • You didn't use it to ramp up testing.

  • You're so... you're so...

  • Right now, nearly 20 million people are unemployed.

  • You're so disgraceful. It's so disgraceful

  • -the way you say that. -Tens of thousands of Americans are dead.

  • Let me just... Listen, I just went over it.

  • How-- this is so real--

  • or this rant supposed to make people feel confident...

  • -I just went over it. -...in an unprecedented crisis?

  • Nobody thought we should do it, and when I did it...

  • But what did you do with the time that you bought?

  • -You know what we did? -In the month of February?

  • -That video has a gap. -You know what we did?

  • -The entire month of February. -What do you do...?

  • What do you do when you have no case in the whole United States?

  • -You had cases in February. -When you-you... Excuse me.

  • You reported it. Zero cases, zero deaths on January 17.

  • January. February. The entire month of February.

  • January. I said in January.

  • -Your video has a complete gap. -On January 30...

  • What did your administration do in February

  • with the time that your travel ban bought you?

  • -A lot. A lot. -What?

  • And, in fact, we'll give you a list, what we did.

  • In fact, part of it was up here.

  • -It wasn't in there. There are gaps. -We did a lot.

  • Look, look, you know you're a fake.

  • You know that. Your whole network,

  • the way you cover it, is fake. And most of you...

  • And not all of you, but the people are wise to you.

  • That's why you have a lower... a lower approval rating

  • than you've ever had before times, probably, three.

  • Okay that-- that was a master class in dodging the question.

  • Trump pulled every single trick in the book.

  • He said he'll give the proof later.

  • He then tried to change the topic.

  • And then he even called the reporter a fake.

  • Like, I feel like he was two seconds away

  • from just pretending that he doesn't speak English.

  • Sorry, folks, no habla inglés.

  • So few hablas.

  • Zero hablas.

  • Luckily, the truth is that America doesn't really need

  • to rely on the president's instincts here.

  • Governors are the ones who lock down their states,

  • and governors are the ones who will decide

  • when to open the states back up.

  • In fact, yesterday, governors on both the East Coast

  • and the West Coast formed multi-state pacts

  • to decide together when to open the economy up.

  • And this is actually a brilliant idea

  • in the absence of leadership from the White House.

  • This is truly a brilliant idea.

  • I mean, in fact, when I think about it,

  • all the states should just join up.

  • Yeah, think about it. All the states should join up,

  • and they should work in unison, with each other, you know?

  • Like, like, they could call it the...

  • the Together States in America.

  • Goddamn, that's brilliant. I got to write that down.

  • Now, when Trump heard that the states were gonna be deciding

  • on whether or not to reopen their economies,

  • regardless of his decision, he was quick to remind people

  • that his business cards might say "President,"

  • but y'all better treat him like the king.

  • NEWSMAN: At the White House,

  • President Trump made the stunning claim

  • that only he has the power to reopen the country,

  • not individual state governors.

  • The President of the United States

  • has the authority to do what the president...

  • has the authority to do, which is very powerful.

  • The President of the United States

  • calls the shots.

  • They can't do anything without the approval

  • of the President of the United States.

  • Well, you say my authority. The president's authority.

  • Not mine. Because it's not me.

  • This is... when somebody's the President of the United States,

  • the authority is total.

  • And that's the way it's got to be.

  • REPORTER: Your authority's total?

  • Total. It's total.

  • What provision in the Constitution

  • gives the president the power to open or close state economies?

  • -And then... -Numerous provisions.

  • We'll give you a legal brief if you want.

  • Okay, uh, just so we're on the same page,

  • Trump has now promised us a list of all the preparations

  • he took in February,

  • and an explanation of why he has total power

  • as the president.

  • And I'm assuming he'll deliver all of those pieces of paper

  • when he sends over his tax returns

  • and his high school report on To Kill a Mockingbird.

  • Yeah. At this point, Trump has more pages to release

  • than George R. R. Martin.

  • Where's the final book, George!

  • You've been stuck at home with nothing else to do.

  • No more excuses, George.

  • I'm gonna come and find you...

  • and ask you this question in person.

  • This is not a threat.

  • And, you know, it's crazy how throughout this crisis

  • Trump has been pushing responsibility

  • onto the governors at every opportunity.

  • Every opportunity, that's what he's been doing.
