I think Ben Carson would have been a better choice as long as they would listen to him.

Is Trump a pathological liar?
I think he's a sociopath. He doesn't care about people at all.

This is an attack on Trump's policy on supplying medical products to America's hospitals. It leads with an admiral and Pence declaring that the fed was delivering 200k masks to NY today. When pressed by a reporter at mark 2:50, the admiral admits the masks are being delivered to a for-profit distributor which could opt to sell to a foreign country. The fed could then buy them back and distribute them to Republican states only. There's so much news to watch around the world that I somehow missed this bit.

Trump and Co. is pushing their own agenda during the coronavirus.

Entertainment tax benefit, protectionism (bad for consumer) and rolling back of mileage standards to get those gas eaters back on the road.

Tremendous amounts of hydroxychloroquine being sent to states.

Trump touts malaria drug as cure for coronavirus.

All of this upsets me because Trump wants to be the messiah of physicians or the next Jonas Salk at everybody's expense.

This is HBO, so there's a lot of profanity. The first 10 minutes or so is a scathing critique of Jared Kushner's 'leadership' and the hold-out, denier Republican governors. The rest is an exposure of a new propaganda fixture in Trump's excuse machine: AON. This is just embarrassing. I have disliked many presidents before, but this sideshow...at the expense of American lives and credibility
...is just ridiculous. How did we come to this?

The Jared Kushner part begins at 2:40.

Stay safe, everyone.

After watching this, it's no wonder America is number one. A $9,000 bill for a TV star, only to be told the hospital couldn't process his test. He was told you probably have covid-19.

Americans still can't get testing? This is another video of Trump at his worst avoiding legitimate questions by berating reporters instead of answering the question.

This is a pretty complete analysis of Trump's spin. Funny quote by Mika, "[Trump] does not READ..."

Okay. I sucked it up and read. Of course, the science makes sense, but the treatment is still unproven. There are many other drugs being tested by many countries: Japan, Israel, and India are some of the countries I've read about which offer promising remedies. That University of Pittsburgh study is one of the best. It's not that the sensible people are against HC, but they are against unproven remedies.

But if a drug doesn't have bad side effects and it is deemed safe enough to treat lupus and other conditions, why not try it instead of having as many people die? I mean if it was between death and trying this drug, I would try the drug. I haven't read about the other drugs, but are they being used in humans for other conditions or are they more experimental with unknown possible side effects in humans?
