Re: What was the name of that 1979s movie, WHO IS KILLING THE LEADERS OF EUROPE!?!  Donald Trump is going to kill Boris Johnson with that unproven drug in which he has some stock.  

 

I'm so sick of hearing about how dangerous Hydroxychloroquine is.  It's been used since 1955, like other drugs MAY have side effects, people having RARE allergic reactions.  What Rx drug doesn't?

Doctors is using it in Europe with trial runs with very good results.

Thanks for posting this link....lord knows where this stuff is going, since the administration has shown they have no orginizational skills.  It could well be going to one of his golf buddies to sell to the highest bidder.  If you combined all the managerial skills of trump's WH enablers, they couldn't run a Starbucks in Nowhere, Nebraska

There will be three sets of numbers.
 
The first will be turnout numbers, which are already being released.
 
The second, coming Monday 4/13, will be vote totals per candidate. We'll find out who won.
 
The third will take longer, & remain unclear: the number infected. The deaths.

BREAKING: President Obama calls for “robust system of testing and monitoring” for coronavirus. It’s “key” to recovering and “something we have yet to put in place nationwide.” Let me translate: Obama thinks Trump has no plan. So Obama laid out what the plan should be. Awesome.

The country needs to defer to Doctors Trump, Hamradio, Howard, Fine and Howard.

Do you have stock in this drug as well, like Trump?  Or do you think the Covid death rate might not be high enough unless you push this untested stuff?

Hannity’s latest propaganda actually exposes Trump’s epic failures

Sean Hannity’s latest effort to portray President Trump as a heroic and decisive leader throughout the coronavirus crisis belongs in a time capsule. It will aid future study of one of the most monumental and destructive leadership failures in modern times — and the extraordinary lengths to which Trump’s propagandists are going to rewrite it as a spectacular triumph.

Hannity’s strategy, of course, is Trump’s strategy. Trump has already telegraphed that, however extensive the eventual coronavirus damage in American deaths and economic carnage, Trump will take credit for having kept it to that supposed minimum.

This requires memory-holing Trump’s catastrophic refusal to take coronavirus seriously for weeks and weeks, and instead substituting a narrative in which he acted decisively throughout.

Hannity displayed what this will look like with his broadcast on Tuesday night. Hannity and Trump talked about Trump’s decision to restrict travel from China as if it were a singularly decisive move. (This is an absurd exaggeration, but put that aside for now.)

Importantly, during that banter — which also featured them bashing the media for refusing to recognize Trump’s brilliant leadership — Hannity scrolled a timeline of major actions by the government all throughout this crisis.

The juxtaposition created the propagandistic impression that all these acts demonstrated how seriously Trump took coronavirus all throughout. This deserves close attention, folks: It heralds the major media push that’s coming.

But it’s nonsense. What Hannity doesn’t tell you is that in many of the cases he himself cited, Trump directly resisted those efforts, publicly undercut them, or privately raged over them for the most nakedly corrupt of reasons.

Let’s go through it.

Trump ignored and undercut urgent warnings

First, Hannity’s timeline begins by citing numerous warnings that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued to the public early on about coronavirus.

But Hannity doesn’t tell you that Trump repeatedly and explicitly undercut the CDC’s efforts to create a sense of public urgency about the threat.

For instance, CDC officials had to actively work to reverse Trump’s downplaying of coronavirus. In February, after Trump claimed coronavirus would “miraculously” go away in the spring, CDC Director Robert Redfield contradicted Trump, noting it would remain “beyond this year.”

Trump also actively contradicted CDC officials himself. After one declared it’s a “question of exactly when” coronavirus will spread, Trump disputed this, claiming: “I don’t think it’s inevitable.”

Trump even privately raged about the CDC’s public warnings because they were spooking the markets, which Trump views as key to his reelection chances.

Second, Hannity’s timeline cites two acts to show the administration’s decisiveness: Health and Human Services Secretary Alex Azar’s declaration on Jan. 31 of a public health emergency, and Trump’s appointment of Vice President Pence as head of the response on Feb. 26th.

What Hannity doesn’t tell you is that the internal dynamics involving both Azar and Pence actually showcased Trump’s refusal to treat coronavirus urgently — in a particularly vivid way.

For instance, Azar tried to warn Trump to take coronavirus seriously as early as mid-January, but Trump’s aides “mocked and belittled Azar as alarmist” for doing so.

Trump’s appointment of Pence was actually part of an effort to marginalize the prescient Azar. And it came late. Until Pence was appointed, no White House official had been in charge of the response to coronavirus “until nearly two months after it began.”

Trump repeatedly and disastrously flouted experts

Comically, Hannity’s timeline also hails Trump’s announcement of 15 days of strict social distancing guidelines.

But it doesn’t tell you that Trump subsequently moved to relax guidelines in defiance of urgent warnings from experts or that Trump only backed down and extended guidelines after truly dire projections, TV imagery of mounting corpses and warnings that a future death spike could damage his reelection chances cut through his haze of willful denial.

Similarly, Hannity’s timeline hails Trump for invoking the Defense Production Act, and extols Trump’s efforts on behalf New York. In fact, Trump utterly failed to fully deploy DPA in a manner that experts counseled would have prevented many problems now besetting the medical supply chain, which are leaving states and hospitals confused, scrambling and disastrously underequipped.

Finally, Hannity’s timeline notes Trump “mentioned” coronavirus in his February speech to Congress, as if that merits applause.

In fact, Trump’s reference was to his supposedly successful cooperation with China against it, in keeping with the line at the time that Trump, working with China, “shut it down,” as Trump put it. Amusingly, Hannity later abruptly pivoted in lockstep with Trump to blaming China for it.

It should be stressed that Trump’s casual dismissiveness had extensive consequences, badly hampering the federal response. It helped produce disastrous delays in testing that created a “lost month” in which coronavirus spread out of control, and a failure by this “wartime president” to marshal private sector resources in time for coronavirus to swamp hospitals.

Hannity has unintentionally done us all a public service. He has reminded us just how vast the gulf was between many members of Trump’s administration, who did urgently want to take coronavirus seriously, and Trump, who serially and pathologically refused to do so.

Satire from the Borowitz Report

Not the news.

  • Borowitz-PeterNavarro.jpg
    Navarro majored in Trump Studies, which the defunct university’s course catalogue described as the “study of the incredible achievements and philosophy of Donald J. Trump.”
    April 7, 2020
  • According to his newly revealed Trump University transcript, Navarro majored in Trump Studies, which the defunct university’s course catalogue described as the “study of the incredible achievements and philosophy of Donald J. Trump.”

    To earn his Ph.D., Navarro wrote a doctoral dissertation entitled “Donald J. Trump: Genius or Savior?” Extolling Navarro’s academic work, Trump said, “If it comes down to an argument between Tony Fauci and Peter Navarro, I’ll go with the Trump University grad, every time.”

    For his part, Navarro told reporters that “fighting a pandemic isn’t rocket science,” but added that he is also an expert in rocket science.

Just in: Almost 300 sailors on the Theodore Roosevelt have now tested positive for COVID-19. That's more than half the total cases in the entire Navy. More than 90 percent of the crew has been tested.

if covid-19 is a variant or mutation of a malaria strain it might be a good idea to consider it.
