An Ad That Writes Itself

Trump on a study on hydroxychloroquine he doesn’t identify: “There was a false study done.” He said the drug was given to people who were “old” and “ready to die” and that the people who gave them the drug were “obviously not friends of the administration.”

  1. “almost dead” was also the way he referred to those vets (whom we will be honoring this coming memorial day, BTW).

    from the independent about the test at issue:

    The Veterans Affairs study featured 368 patients in a number of VA hospitals, concluding there was “no evidence” the antimalarial drug lowered the patients’ risk of death or needing a ventilator when they were given hydroxychloroquine in combination with any drug . What’s more, those in the study who were treated with just hydroxychloroquine were more likely to pass away.

  2. Patd, that’s the perfect cartoon for the weekend. Bravo. 
    Yes, those old vets who were ready to die – how dare they die and make SFB look like the idiot he is?  SFB obviously didn’t read even the abstract of the study. 

  3. Jamie, that’s one of randy’s best! if not the best. thanks.

    be a good one to go viral from now ’til nov. (or until the orange weasel tucks tail and resigns or gets 25’d per constitution or coronovirus)

  4. bet he won’t do it unless he comes out with some excuse like Ivanka had already suggested it before they did

    the hill:

    The top Democrats in Congress are calling on President Trump to order that flags be flown at half-staff at all public buildings on the day the U.S. reaches 100,000 deaths caused by the novel coronavirus. 
    In a letter sent to the president on Thursday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) wrote that the tribute would serve as a “national expression of grief so needed by everyone.”
    “Our hearts are broken over this great loss and our prayers are with their families,” Pelosi and Schumer said. “Respectful of them and the loss to our country, we are writing to request that you order flags to be flown at half staff on all public buildings in our country on the sad day of reckoning when we reach 100,000 deaths.”
    The president reserves the right to order that flags be flown at half-staff for tragic events and the deaths of notable officials. Trump ordered U.S. flags to be flown at half-staff as a “mark of solemn respect” for the victims of mass shootings in El Paso, Texas, and Dayton, Ohio, last August. 

  5. starting back in march KY gov beshear asked Kentuckians to signal their compassion for families who lost loved ones to COVID each night to turn on a green light at home and business and for churches to ring bells every morning at 10 to communicate “we will get through this.  we will get through this together” –  a line he repeats everyday at his briefing.

  6. Hey, isn’t it neat that thanks to American data-manipulation Exceptionalism, Covid-19 numbers are magically-declining?  The whole rest of the world struggling to contain it, but everything is A-OK, here.  Thanks, Mr. President!
    (Even Russia is more honest with its covid-statistic reporting)

  7. My red-state, GOP-run county has just straight-up STOPPED reporting Covid-19 confirmed-cases and deaths.

  8. What you don’t know can’t hurt you- primarily because they put you in a coma for intubation.

  9. OK- there’s my signature “Triple Play”, for the day (this doesn’t count).

  10. The demise of small business is fueling stock market. Wall Street excited to see the big companies finally get rid of pesky little companies that aren’t publicly traded. Just my amateur opinion.

  11. Renee, great cartoon. (Yes, one was and one is).
    I’m not sure how Johns Hopkins gathers its data, but I’d trust it before anything SFBCo puts out. 

  12. As Wall Street celebrates the death of Main Street, they are too greedy-ass, stupid to realize they are killing their own customer base.    In small towns where there’s a WalMart, there is no more Main Street.  You want a job?  WalMart.  You need food or anything else? WalMart.  They are the company store of which  Tennessee Ernie Ford sang.   Does that grow the economy?  Nope.  Idiots.  Greedy-ass idiots.

  13. Well they finally let Michael Cohen out.  Time to warm up the old PC I’d guess.
