House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler (D-N.Y.) appeared to faint at an event with New York City Mayor and 2020 presidential candidate Bill de Blasio Friday.
“The mayor is speaking – and then there’s a sudden commotion,” NBC4 said. “De Blasio and others move to help an extremely pale Nadler as he sits, a ghost-like look on his face, in the chairs at P.S. 199 on the Upper West Side.”
The event was about the installation of speed cameras in the city.
Video of the event shows de Blasio attempting to give an unresponsive Nadler some water, telling him that he looked a bit dehydrated. Nadler was eventually wheeled out of the auditorium on a stretcher and rushed to the hospital. According to a spokesperson, he is fine.
“He is okay. Seems to have been dehydrated and it was very warm in the room. He is now responsive and receiving a check-up,” the spokesperson reportedly said.
Nadler has led the House Democrats’ efforts to re-litigate Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation into alleged “Russian collusion” by President Donald J. Trump’s campaign. Mueller’s report came up empty, dissatisfying Democrats who have decided to retaliate by subpoenaing many in Trump’s orbit. Attorney General William P. Barr has decided not to comply with the House’s subpoena’s and is pressing forward with his own investigation into the origins of the Trump/Russia probe.
Airbnb CEO Says Wuhan Virus Will Fundamentally Transform Domestic Travel
Post-pandemic America will not look the same.
Brian Chesky, the CEO of Airbnb, said to Reuters on January 14, 2021 that domestic travel patterns will not revert to pre-Wuhan virus pandemic standards.
In a Zoom call with Jonathan Weber, the global technology editor for Reuters, Chesky said that business travel will move towards leisure travel due to the fact that software like Zoom facilitates teleconferencing at unprecedented rates.
Furthermore, Chesky speculates that people won’t be visiting America’s largest cities as much as before, nor will they stay at crowded hotels. Instead, he believes that “many people will travel by car – some will travel by plane – and they’re going to travel to thousands of smaller communities. And many of these communities are going to be smaller cities and or even rural areas.”
Additionally, the Airbnb CEO notes that “farm stays are huge right now” and that national parks travel will become a major trend among travelers in the upcoming months. The latter will grow, in Chesky’s view, because most Americans have not visited such parks.
According to an Airbnb survey, 54% of Americans have plans of traveling in 2021 or they’re in the process of planning out their trips for the summer. Chesky asserted that travelers are “yearning for what was taken away from them.” He added, “they’re not yearning to see Times Square. What they are yearning to do is to see their friends and their families they have not seen in a long time.”
Tyler Durden of ZeroHedge raised an interesting point about this change in Americans’ travel patterns:
If Chesky is right about the significant travel shift, the hotel industry could be slated for a massive wave of bankruptcies and or consolidation to a degree never before seen.
Regardless, Americans are getting tired of the Wuhan virus lockdowns. Millions of Americans have had their freedoms infringed upon thanks to politicians who want to exploit a generalized crisis for their own gain.
If Republicans were smart, they would be unapologetically campaigning for their states to be reopened. Americans want to go back to their normal lives and engage in activities such as travel, which the political class has deprived them of.
