You know, day after day I listen to this, and the logistics of what has happened in the last 4-6 weeks is simply amazing.

Trump:
Expanded access program for transfusions (3K people in it).
Convalescent plasma will be used for a concentrated antibody treatment that does not have to be matched to blood type. Clinical trials will begin soon.


AI experts are scanning the data of the 52K papers on COVID-19.

Would have been great if the ball was rolling six weeks before that.  Like, around the time the virus was a hoax and we had 15 cases moving toward zero.  opportunity lost, I guess.

Hello everyone, and I had the opportunity to visit Cassandra at Buffalo Children's today. As mentioned she is off the Ecmo machine and doing most of the work. It will take some time for her to heal. S

I have stayed away from this forum for a long time, and most know my politics...tonight was important for our country. Trump was up to it so far. Fantastic job.

Many companies are working together on a vaccine. If we get it, we will scale up. Johnson & Johnson is scaling up now before they have a final vaccine.

Ha! He just called the press the "lame stream media."

Press: asked about Boris Johnson (UK guy)
Trump: He sounded fantastic! Just like the old Boris. He was surprised as he expected him to sound terrible. He's (Boris) is an incredible guy. They are lucky to have him over there.


Press: Kim Jong Un? Heard anything?
Trump: Monologuing. 
Trump said, "I think the report was incorrect. Let's put it that way."
I think it was a fake report by CNN.
CNN is fake news, don't talk to me.
He's ignoring the CNN reporter. ?

I haven't been taking my zinc. Friggin hoarders. I haven't gotten sick either. What are your conclusions, doctor?

Heavy doses of Fox News will suppress the virus.  Gotta be it.

Your next serious post will be your first. Maybe you would have felt more fulfilled if you had went to clown school instead of law school.

NY is currently at 15740 so try that again, but try it on a real calculator cause your ain't working right ?

 

You better call up worldometers.info and tell them they wrote down an extra 5121 deaths for NYS because they have it at 20861.

 

Where are you seeing only 15740?

 

I see now that different sites are reporting wildly different mortality.  Anyone know the source of the discrepancy?  33% difference is ridiculous...

 

Maybe they're including the "probable" cases of Covid-19 death, but other sites only the "confirmed".

Good to know.

If Trump was the true total lying ***** up as many of you say he is wouldn’t you have a lot more than this line that you and Q-tip like to incessantly drag out?  Come on man.  If he’s that bad there should be dozens/Hundreds/MILLIONS!!

Now that Trump has said perhaps injecting disinfectant into the human body would stop the virus, you have to wonder if he is smart enough to tie his own shoes.


I inject alcohol everyday. Isn’t that a disinfectant?

No wonder Fancy (ice cream) Nancy hasn't gotten it yet.  She's gotta be over 60% alcohol.

Fake news.  I post lots of serious stuff.  And I am fulfilled.

Thousands, for sure, as of the start of this year:

Press: will social distancing be extended?
Trump: we will see

Trump: I once mentioned it goes away with heat and light, and the #fakenews didn't like that, but now it seems like it may be the case.
 

 

April.  He tried to wish it away by April.  Last I checked, it's still here.

The word on the street is that you have been diagnosed with Small Cox. 

(Apoogies, that is a staple amongst my peers and colleagues for 4 decades a s still draws a laugh now and again.  And yes, my peers and colleagues = my dopey but lovable friends.)

Probably better than being diagnosed with Bryan Cox.

Don't most viruses do worse in the heat? He's not really going out on a limb there.


That’s the point though, Gene. When he said it, it was “common virology knowledge” more or less. Despite this, the media claimed it was made up. They called a basic fact “dangerous”. 
 

THAT’S the takeaway. The media is not an ally of truth.

While true for most viruses, it's not true for every virus. Why even say things like this (HCQ) until we knows for certain? What's the benefit? To say he was right and gain votes or feed his ego? Otherwise, it's redundant at best.

 

While not particularly harmful in this case, it's his way of being and it comes off as childish, anti-scientific and self-serving. I expect more from the President. He should be an example for all instead of someone you have to make excuses for.

Keep doubting it despite mounting evidence:

 

 

but let's enjoy our first real day of live sports respite in more than a month and a half. :beer:

 

You are wrong on virtually everything you post :D.

 

However, you are a brother Bills fan... Here's hoping to a good draft and, hopefully, a good season :beer:

imo He said it to bait the press into doing precisely what they did: deny common knowledge so even those people not paying attention hear about it. 

 

Trump's single biggest accomplishment of his first term in my opinion is his exposure of just how much the establishment media curates our reality. That's a very powerful, and empowering, realization to make as an individual. Trump facilitates that better than most anyone, even among those people who dislike him immensely.
