Bill Gates TED Talk Transcript from 2015: Warns of Pandemics, Epidemics
Bill Gates: (00:07) When I was a kid, the disaster we worried about most was a nuclear war. That’s why we had a barrel like this down in our basement, filled with cans of food and water.

President Trump Sleeping at Walter Reed Medical Center
ANDERSON COOPER, CNN HOST: Good evening. It's 9:00 p.m. here in New York and at the Walter Reed Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland. And despite a taped message tonight from the president who's spending another night there, we still do not know the plain facts of his condition.
