Leisure Travel Halt, JK Rowling, Doug Collins, Dr. Drew, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Carole King, Lunar Lander, Justin Russo: HOT LINKS

LEISURE TRAVEL. Flight attendants union wants it to stop: “On a Monday morning call with reporters, Sara Nelson, the powerful head of the Association of Flight Attendants-CWA, said at least one flight attendant had died and more than 100 flight attendants had tested positive for the virus so far. Nearly 1,000 were self-quarantined and several more were in intensive care. She urged the Department of Transportation and the Federal Aviation Administration to issue advisories to the public to postpone any non-necessary voyages until the spread of COVID-19, the deadly respiratory disease caused by the new virus, is under control.”

AWFUL AND AWFULER. Doug Collins holds “significant lead” over Kelly Loeffler in Georgia: “A Battleground Connect survey, which was conducted internally for the Collins campaign and first reported by Politico, revealed that 36 percent of likely voters support Collins, who has represented the 9th District in Georgia since 2013, for the Senate seat currently held by Loeffler, who was appointed by Gov. Brian Kemp (R) following the resignation of former Sen. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) late last year over health issues.”

SOME GOOD NEWS. Lin-Manuel Miranda and cast of Hamilton reunite for 9-year-old girl.

‘PRESS-INDUCED PANIC’: Dr. Drew apologizes for minimizing coronavirus crisis. “My early comments about equating coronavirus with influenza were wrong. They were incorrect.”

PURGE SIREN. Louisiana parish’s emergency alert is haunting and straight out of the movies. ‘In a video provided to Scripps station KATC in Lafayette, Louisiana, the alarm sound used by the Crowley Police is the same alarm sound used in the horror film franchise “The Purge.”‘

BREATHING AND COUGHING. JK Rowling says she had coronavirus but has recovered, and said breathing techniques helped.

DYING. Rapper YNW Melly says he is dying in prison with COVID-19: “The rapper’s lawyer, Bradford Cohen, filed legal docs, obtained by TMZ, claiming the rapper — in prison awaiting his murder trial — is suffering from severe chills, heavy labored breathing, headaches and body aches since he tested positive for the coronavirus.”

DETROIT. 700+ employees at hospital test positive for coronavirus: “More than 700 Henry Ford Health System workers have tested positive for COVID-19, the hospital system’s chief clinical officer said Monday. Dr. Adnan Munkarah said in a statement Monday evening that 734 employees have tested positive for the novel coronavirus out of nearly 2,500 employees who have received tests. The figure represents just over 2 percent of the hospital system’s 31,600 employees. More workers likely have the virus, but have not been tested.”

AUSTRALIA. Shark kills 23-year-old wildlife worker on Great Barrier Reef. “Police said the man was in the water, returning to a vessel chartered by the service when he was attacked Monday near North West Island, 47 miles northeast of Gladstone. He suffered extensive injuries to his leg and arm and died at a hospital hours later.”

Trump Fires Inspector General Overseeing $2 Trillion Coronavirus Stimulus Package

Donald Trump has fired Glenn Fine, the Pentagon inspector general appointed to oversee the $2 trillion coronavirus stimulus package.

Politico reports: “That decision, which began circulating on Capitol Hill Tuesday morning, effectively removed Fine from his role overseeing the coronavirus relief effort, since the new law permits only current inspectors general to fill the position. … Fine’s removal is Trump’s latest incursion into the community of independent federal watchdogs — punctuated most dramatically by his late Friday ouster of the intelligence community’s inspector general, Michael Atkinson, whose handling of a whistleblower report ultimately led to Trump’s impeachment.”

The Hill reports: “The move follows several steps Trump has taken to combat oversight of the bailout fund. After signing the relief package into law last month, the president issued a signing statement saying he would not allow the special inspector general for the relief program to report to Congress without his supervision. And last week, he nominated one of his own White House lawyers, Brian Miller, for the special inspector general position.”

OnlyFans star Bryan Hawn is hawking a bogus coronavirus cure on his YouTube page

OnlyFans star Bryan Hawn is currently hawking a bogus herbal remedy for COVID-19 on his YouTube channel.

The self-proclaimed “recording artist, fitness icon, and zoologist” is peddling a coronavirus miracle cure that he says “is literally equivalent to having a ventilator.”

In a 16-minute video posted over the weekend, Hawn claims he’s been suffering from a nasty bout of the virus since “probably around the beginning of February” after contracting it while “visiting southeast Asia around the end of December.”

“I want to tell people how I beat the virus,” Hawn says. “I didn’t go to the doctor. At the time it was just, I don’t know, it was crazy. And they were saying that they couldn’t really do much about it.”

Instead of seeking professional medical assistance, Hawn alleges he started taking a magical supplement called Deep Lung and his “hacking stopped immediately.”

According to the product description, Deep Lung is “as great as a lung tonic and rehabilitator for city dwellers breathing dirty air, cigarette smokers or their housemates, medicinal marijuana users, or anyone who wants support for stronger and healthier lungs.”

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle2”); );

“90% of the people who are dying [from coronavirus] would not die if they had this supplement,” Hawn falsely claims.

In the video, Hawn also admits that, in addition to never going to the doctor, he hasn’t actually been tested for coronavirus, so he doesn’t know if he really has, er, had it.

AdBridg.cmd.push(function() AdBridg.display(“div-gpt-ad-inarticle3”); );

He also insists that he’s not using the pandemic “to market myself or my brand.” Instead, he genuinely wants to help the “hundred of thousands of people that could potentially not die if they have this supplement.”

Sadly, many of Hawn’s followers actually seem to believe him:

New ‘Tiger King’ Episode, Buttigieg’s ‘Win The Era’ PAC, Troye Sivan, Jacqueline Wilson, Chromatica: HOT LINKS

2020. Biden +6 over Trump in Florida poll: “Pollsters also asked if the election were held today, who voters would support for president. Former Vice President Joe Biden outperforms Trump 46% to 40%, the survey found — but Binder cautions that the survey includes only registered voters, not likely voters and ‘the campaign season has screeched to a grinding halt and people are rightly less focused on politics.’”

WISCONSIN. Tuesday primary postponed until June.

Pete Buttigieg

WIN THE ERA. Pete Buttigieg launches new PAC for down-ballot candidates: “Our nation and world are in a period of upheaval right now, which will make it more important than ever to support and elect good leaders this November and into the future. This is not only a question of replacing the current president and doing away with the division and cruelty that have characterized the Trump era, but also ensuring we have strong leaders at every level of government.”

TIGER KING. New episode on the way, according to Jeff Lowe.

REALLY, REALLY SICK. Pink details her and son Jameson’s battle with coronavirus: “There were many nights when I’ve cried and I’ve never prayed more in my life. It’s funny, but at one point, I thought they promised us our kids would be okay. It’s not guaranteed. There is no one that is safe from this.”

Larry David

LARRY DAVID. The Curb Your Enthusiasm comic says it’s hard to think Woody Allen did anything wrong.

JACQUELINE WILSON. Children’s novelist comes out at 84: “I’ve never really been in any kind of closet. It would be such old news for anybody that has ever known anything much about me. Even the vaguest acquaintance knows perfectly well that we are a couple,” she said. The only person to be “appalled” at her relationship was her mother, she added. But: “that wasn’t too devastating for me because my mum cordially hated my ex-husband; she didn’t really approve of any of my friends.”

ALABAMA. State could have highest per capita death rate due to COVID-19: “If the worst were to happen – if Alabamians refuse to follow social distancing measures, the state’s intensive care units become overfull with the most ill coronavirus patients, or even if people here are unlucky – nearly 10,000 Alabamians could die from COVID-19 by the middle of next month.”
