Join Jim and Greg as they’re glad to see New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo finally changing the rule that required nursing homes to accept recovering, yet contagious, COVID-19 patients.

And while the media focus on Trump’s clash with the media on testing and blame for China, Jim says the real story is China’s actions and it’s aggressive propaganda efforts.
