Not only was this deed good for the hospital staff, it was a nice boost for Mr. Nick’s.

Bill and Hillary Clinton sent over 400 pizzas to New York hospital workers on front lines against coronavirus

Doctors and nurses on the front lines of the battle against coronavirus are facing unprecedented challenges. Some hospitals, especially in New York, are overwhelmed with patients, and hospital staffs are working tirelessly — sometimes without the proper protective equipment. On Thursday, one hospital in the area received a meaningful thank-you gesture from some famous New York residents.

“Amazing !!! I am an ER doctor at Dobbs Ferry NY and just received pizza from the Clintons,” tweeted Dr. Angela Cirilli, who works at St. John’s Riverside Hospital and Dobbs Ferry Emergency Medicine in Westchester County.

“Thank you !!!! We NEED LEADERS LIKE YOU in this tough time. So much gratitude I didn’t know how else to reach you to say thank you – Angela cirilli, MD,” her tweet continued.

Onward Together!

In these uncertain times, I wanted to reach out and let you know that I’m thinking of you.

We are a long way from knowing how this health crisis will play out or what long-term effects it will have. But we do know that we should be focused on two things:

  1. Preventing the spread of this virus as much as possible.
  2. Support hospitals, doctors, nurses, and state and local officials so they can take care of the seriously ill.
The experts have all told us that there are many, many people walking around with the virus by now. Many of them will not get sick, or will only get mildly sick; others will have a more acute experience. Millions of American workers do not have the luxury of staying home; it is absolutely critical that those of us who can do so. You’re not just protecting yourself by working from home, minimizing travel, and washing your hands. You’re protecting people in your community who may have a greater risk of complications from COVID-19 than you do.
You and I know that this crisis is real. Call your loved ones and ask that they stay home if they can, or, if they can’t, that they take other precautions to avoid contracting or spreading the virus. The CDC is regularly updating their guidelines, and many national news sources have made their COVID-19 coverage available for free.
And while we’re at home, one way that we can support our communities is to continue to call on our representatives to further expand paid sick leave and paid family leave, as well as unemployment insurance and Medicaid funds. Millions of nurses, caregivers, and food service workers in America don’t have access to any paid sick leave. It’s morally wrong and, as the coronavirus crisis makes clear, it puts us all at risk.
As for us, Bill and I are at home, following the guidelines set by the governor and the CDC — and taking the opportunity to catch up on some reading. I’ve particularly enjoyed The Dutch House by the wonderful Ann Patchett.
If you or someone you know is concerned about food or housing security in the coming weeks, or if you’re looking for somewhere to make a donation, the following organizations are offering support during this crisis: Feeding America, No Kid Hungry, World Central Kitchen, God’s Love We Deliver, Direct Relief, and the National Low Income Housing Coalition.
Keep an eye out in the coming days for an update on how Onward Together partners are responding to the crisis, and what you can do to fight for our shared values from home. In the meantime, know that we’re thinking of you and your loved ones.
Stay safe and healthy,

Hillary

I am adding this because really it is art of what is above. Everyone should be able to vote without fear of putting themselves in jeopardy.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton spoke to her love of theater and emphasized the importance of women’s equality on Broadway and elsewhere at a women’s event Tuesday.

Speaking at the New Amsterdam Theatre, Clinton employed her theater references, ranging from “King Lear” to the diversity of the 2017 Broadway season to director Rachel Chakvin’s Tony Awards speech, to comment on current politics and her own frequent attendance on Broadway. At the heart of her speech was a call for women to speak up, whether it be through dramatic art or within the workplace.

“I feel a strong obligation to keep talking about the great unfinished business of the 21st century, namely expanding the rights, opportunities and full participation in every aspect of society by women and girls,” Clinton said. “And of course that includes the theater.”

Mrs. Clinton delivered the keynote address at the meeting of the Group of Friends of Women in Afghanistan, held barely two weeks after the signing of a peace deal between Washington and the Taliban.

The agreement calls for the insurgent group to participate in intra-Afghan peace talks which were to begin that day. It also covers a timetable for the withdrawal of foreign troops.

“Women must be included, and women’s rights respected, as part of any peace negotiation in Afghanistan”, said Mrs. Clinton.

“Women are essential to combating corruption, building economic growth and ensuring the longevity of any agreement that is reached.  If women are sidelined, the prospects for sustainable peace are slim. If society is torn apart and women pushed to the margins, it is more likely that terrorists will find a haven. There can be no sustainable peace without women’s participation and rights”.

Hillary is too nice. Not only do we have rules, they are Bernie’s rules that now he wants changed.

She has already begun recording interviews.


Talk radio is the bastion of the right, so a lot of politically-minded commentators on the left have turned to podcasts to get their point of view heard. That list now includes Hillary Clinton. The former Secretary of State and Democratic presidential candidate has reportedly signed with the iHeartPodcast Network to produce and distribute her new podcast.

There’s been no official announcement from iHeart about the show, but Politico says Clinton will work with a pair of veteran podcast producers to help craft the show. They include Kathleen Russo, executive producer of Tina Brown’s TBD podcast and creator of Alec Baldwin’s Here’s the Thing podcast and public radio show. And Julie Subrin, who is also a producer for TBD.

The idea of hosting a show was first born last fall when Clinton and her daughter Chelsea recorded an interview on the Conan O’Brien Needs a Friend podcast during a book tour last autumn. The former First Lady was already in talks with iHeart and those close to her say it further opened her eyes to how different a conversation can be on a podcast compared to broadcast radio or television. Clinton reportedly further opened to the idea of doing a long-form show when she appeared on Howard Stern’s satellite radio show and the two spoke for more than two hours for what was his longest-ever interview with a non-musician.

Your guide to what’s hot in London

A parade of stars, some with two legs and others with four, have trotted through Berlin this week as the city celebrates the 70th edition of its annual film festival. Cate Blanchett, Javier Bardem, Sigourney Weaver, Riz Ahmed, Johnny Depp, Bill Nighy and more have all braved the freezing rain on the red carpet. And yet the festival’s biggest celebrity guest, as befits a cinematic summit that prides itself on political engagement over escapist entertainment, was not Hollywood royalty but Washington aristocracy.

Hillary Rodham Clinton was promoting director Nanette Burstein’s four-hour TV documentary series, Hillary. Though unashamedly partial, Burstein’s screen biography is still admirably thorough, probing Clinton’s marital problems, electoral failures and prickly relations with Bernie Sanders.

However, the former Democratic presidential contender was diplomatic about Sanders in Berlin. “I have my own feelings about him and whether he can win or not,” Clinton said on Tuesday. “But if he is the nominee I will support him, because I think any Democrat is better than Donald Trump.”

She also used her visit to affirm the role of film and TV in countering Trumpian populism. “Culture could not be more important at this moment,” she said. “The other side plays on fear, anxiety, insecurity, resentment and grievance. It’s really critically important to fight back against this very strong tide.”

Clinton Foundation | Putting People First

Help Puerto Rico and the Caribbean build back better.

 

The hurricanes that have devastated the Caribbean region — including Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Dominica, and the Bahamas — serve as a stark reminder that climate change is real and makes all of us more vulnerable and interdependent.

When more than 3.4 million people were impacted by Hurricanes Irma and Maria, the Clinton Foundation answered the call for assistance from local leaders and launched the Clinton Global Initiative (CGI) Action Network on Post-Disaster Recovery.

Now it’s your turn to answer the call. Contribute today and 100% of your gift will help the Foundation to sustain these critical recovery efforts.

When Bill and I were in Puerto Rico this week, we met with CGI partners and local residents who are committed to improving livelihoods for themselves and their neighbors. I was especially moved by the dedicated staff at a maternal health clinic which has been solarized by an equally amazing team of women solar technicians trained by one of our CGI partners. Their collaboration epitomizes what this work is all about and demonstrates what we can accomplish when we all work together.

Working with 700+ partners, the CGI Action Network is helping affected communities recover, rebuild, and become more resilient. And Network members were among the first to respond when Hurricane Dorian devastated the Bahamas and recent earthquakes crippled Puerto Rico. Recovery takes time, and they still need our help.

Progress isn’t easy, and it’s up to all of us to make it happen. Give today and 100% of your generous gift will support the Action Network to help Puerto Rico and the region.

Despite of all the polarization in our country, we’re still in this together, and with your help, we can continue to bring hope, resources, and our shared humanity to our neighbors in need.

Sincerely,
Hillary

SUPPORT OUR WORK
