Hydroxychloroquine is President Trump’s drug of choice at the moment. It’s an anti-malarial drug that some think has an off-label use against Covid-19. On Monday Trump announced that he personally takes the drug. He told the press, “I was just waiting to see your eyes light up when I said this.”

There are risks, its effectiveness against Covid-19 is unproven but he’s taking the drug under the supervision of his physician.

It’s not like he’s mainlining Lysol. Still, the expected media freak-out ensued.

Pelosi offers second opinion on Trump Hydroxychloroquine Therapy

The Speaker of the House recommended against the therapy and diagnosed Trump as morbidly obese. The president countered that she’s a sick woman with a lot of mental problems.

Earlier Monday, Moderna announced that phase one testing of its Covid-19 vaccine showed positive results. So positive that the Dow shot up 900 points. But then Trump stepped the good news.

What the Heck is Unmasking Anyway?

What the heck is unmasking anyway?

Our government spies on foreigners all the time but not its own citizens –theoretically. So while eavesdropping on a Russian ambassador is ok, it’s not ok to spy on the guy at the other end of the call, if he’s an American citizen. So, in order to protect that guy, his information is “masked.” (Bokbluster was on this in 2017)

As it happens, the guy on the other end of Russian Ambassador Kislyak’s call was Trump’s incoming Trump National Security advisor Michael Flynn. And it turns out, dozens of members of the Obama administration, including Joe Biden, unmasked him.

Threat to Our Democracy Biden vs Trump

“Threat to our Democracy” is the Never Trump Resistance’s battle cry. The president is a very stable genius but he says weird things, like claiming that women let him grab them by the pussy. So his opponents deemed him unfit for office and pitched removing him under the 25th amendment. Failing that, and unable to find evidence President Trump is a Russian double agent, they tried a different approach. The House impeached him for a phone call asking Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky to investigate Joe Biden. But the Senate acquitted him.

Threat to Our Democracy

Now the Democrats hope to remove Trump by other means – an election. But their chosen candidate, Joe Biden, says weird things too. He also got a Ukrainian prosecutor fired. And he’s been accused of grabbing a woman by the.. well, you know.

Re-Opening Day for the Economy

It’s time for re-opening… something. While some governors and President Trump are desperate to re-open the economy, many Democrats think otherwise.

We flattened the curve to give hospitals breathing room and delay the virus. But not to stop it.

So far so good. New York City got enough ventilators and made it over the hump. As for the economy – it’s been a bloodletting and it’s on life support. But polls show plenty of people want to keep it that way.

Rich Lowry says they’ve “moved the goal posts.”

Now, the rhetoric around the shutdowns has shifted, and not very subtly — flattening the curve and saving the hospitals are “out,” and not allowing any additional cases to emerge is “in.”

World Health Organization and China Relationship

The World Health Organization and China seem to have an unhealthy relationship.

That is to say, it’s sort of like a pirate to parrot relationship. China speaks and the WHO repeats:

The most notorious example came in the form of a single tweet from the WHO account on January 14: “Preliminary investigations conducted by the Chinese authorities have found no clear evidence of human-to-human transmission of the novel #coronavirus.” That same day, the Wuhan Health Commission’s public bulletindeclared, “We have not found proof for human-to-human transmission.”

World Health Organization and China

President Trump also has “kissing up” issues with China. For instance, on Jan 24 he had this to say:

“China has been working very hard to contain the Coronavirus. The United States greatly appreciates their efforts and transparency. It will all work out well. In particular, on behalf of the American People, I want to thank President Xi!”

Still he did restrict travel from China 5 days later – with the usual Trumpian embellishment that he did it over the objection of experts. After all, it’s not like he’s putting his name on stimulus checks. Oh wait, he is.

Anyway, last week he suspended U.S. funding for the WHO.
