SIgning Off For The Night -- February 29, 2020

CDC? Does one of the "C's" stand for clowns?

I can't make this stuff up.

I saw this earlier today and couldn't figure out what happened.

The back story: that first coronavirus victim in the US was reported by President Trump to be a female. Later, Washington state authorities said it was a male. Why the discrepancy?

This is the explanation:
At the briefing earlier today, the president said there were 22 patients in the United States who have coronavirus.
"Unfortunately, one person passed away overnight," Trump said, speaking to a case in Washington state.
She was a wonderful woman, a medically high-risk patient in her late 50s. Four others are very ill. Thankfully 15 are either recovered fully or they're well on their way to recovery. And in all cases, they've been let go in their home.”
After Trump spoke, officials in Washington state said the first U.S. coronavirus death was actually a male. Asked about the discrepancy, a senior administration official said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention briefed Trump earlier that the victim was a female.
Later, the CDC director took responsibility on Twitter for "erroneously" identifying the patient as female when briefing the president and vice president.
If the CDC can't get the gender of the highest profile patient in the United States right, how in the world can we trust them with the rest of their announcements. LOL.

Actually, maybe transgender?
why she walked like a woman,
but talked like a man
