Top Democrat advise to fly flags at half-staff when Covid-19 deaths reach 100K

House Speaker Pelosi & Senate Minority Leader Schumer requested President Trump to order that flags be flown at half-staff at all public buildings on the day the US reaches 100,000 deaths owing to Covid-19. Such a tribute would serve as a national expression of grief. As on Thursday, the US has recorded ~93,400 deaths and ~1.5mn of confirmed COVID-19 cases.

Will this be the 100,000 deaths while having Wuhan or 100,000 people who actually died of Wuhan, which is at least 25% less than the overinflated stats that are always pushed?

Should I put my flag at half staff for all the Americans who die of heart disease? Or maybe the flu? Don't get me wrong, rest in peace and all that, but is not this just more pandering to the ideology that this is the worst thing that has ever happened to the US? If you are to believe the mass hysteria that is.

What is the point of this?! Leftists always too obsessed with dramatic appearances instead of actually doing somethibg useful about a problem. If you cared about people dying, why did you tell them come to China Town right at the outbreak?

How about doing it whenever that pair open their mouths to say anything stupid?

Seems like more ammo to fling at Trump if he doesn't comply with the nonsensical request. I can hear it now ,"Trump doesn't care about Americans dying!" Why aren't we flying have staff for all the car crash victims last year?

This is... I cant even begin... Yes, on the surface this may look nice... But besides what others has already pointed out, who knows if we stop here? Starting to pay tributes before the pandemic is over does not look like a good idea. It would make more sense afterwards. Deciding that 100k is the magic number, especially as numbers are probably lower than many report is just wrong. Makes it look like - not accusing anyone - they are doing this only for optics - or, even worse, making Trump look bad, if he thinks reasonably and declines "early celebration"...

100,000 is just shy of seating capacity of 8th largest U.S. stadium, Darrell K Royal–Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, which seats 100,119.

Wow, no sympathy here toward the victims of Covid-19! I thought conservatives were supposed to be patriotic and care for their fellow Americans! Sad!

This should be a no brainer. A lot more Americans have died from COVID than in the whole Vietnam war.

You would be waiting for quite a while yet. It would be highly unlikely for it to be reached in 2020. I guess they assume he will still be in office then? Maybe they meant to say when the totals for deaths WITH covid 19 reaches 100k?

These comments sometimes really surprise me at how hardened some hearts have become under this president. I wonder how a family member who has lost someone to Covid-19 would feel after reading these comments, or about a president who failed to act in a timely manner with all the powers of the White House, that could have saved thousands of Americans. I don't know what has happened to this Country, but it's not the one I grew up in. When did hate filter into our society?

So at least we know now that one high ranking government official is worth as much as 100’000 regular people...
