    As much as I want to see Trump gone in Nov, I can't agree with this. Trump isn't responsible for deaths caused by a pandemic. He is however responsible for the Feds response to the pandemic and that has been a disaster.

    From testing, delivery of supplies, delivery of economic help, to leadership in general it's been a cluster. They screwed up early, reacted late, then were unaware of what to do and tried to reinvent the wheel because they didn't have the people in place to get the job done. This was the test we were waiting for and he failed.

    Thankfully he listened to the Drs. (who probably exaggerated the deaths to scare him into listening) and turned his message around to support social distancing. It looks like it's working. Thank god we won't see a calamity. He deserves credit for that. However, he's just not the guy. Blaming China and the previous administration when he's 81% into his term and not accepting any responsibility is not credible and immature. Certainly not the qualities of a leader.

    LOL, I know you're kidding based off of a previous post, but let's keep religion out of this thread. It's got enough going on today as it is ;)

    Let's leave it at that. I don't want to spend this thread talking about what he did/didn't do because that will be a disaster. I'd prefer to avoid that ... especially given where we've already been today :rolleyes:

    Why would two people think it's "funny" that ANY treatment shows promise?

    Because counter evidence to it “showing promise” has been posted again and again and again. And yet Captain Insano has ignored it about 1000 times and just parrots old articles or links from alt right sites.

    The medical evidence and opinions of actual doctors overwhelm a few anecdotal stories from people who think they were saved by Chloroquine but weren’t.

    No. There were a few models out there that indicated 2+ million could die without actions.

    Some good news today. Cases are coming down in NY and other hot spots. It would seem we coming to the peak and will start to come down even more in the coming days. The increasing deaths are very depressing though. I can't wait until those come down. I live in southern MA and it was supposed to be rainy and awful today yet the sun is out. What a difference that makes!

    He was just a bit cranky that particular day. Rest assured, when he and myself, and all the other gods, hang out, he's a very personable guy. In fact, we all had a good laugh at this little Covid ordeal the other day.

    I think the reaction is to the poster rather than the post. Like Dave Chappelle, no matter what he says it’s going to be interpreted as funny.

    If you want someone who won’t lie, it’s probably best that you avoid politics altogether. That’s like looking for a virgin working at a whorehouse.

    I know a pharmacist who said a doctor came in with high-count hydroxychloroquine prescriptions for himself and family members. The pharmacist refused to fill them, so the doctor walked out, likely to try his luck elsewhere.

    Regards,
    Chris
