"Look people, we're gonna need to talk to a lot of doctors. Dr. Oz, Dr. Drew, Dr. Phil, Dr. Dre. I've asked Jared to get me in touch with Dr. Doom. I hear he's very good. Doom. What a name, right? I can't think of a better person to deal with Corona than Dr. Doom. Let's get him on the phone."

i saw this coming a mile away, oz had been the hannity radio show all week spewing his bs 

Dr. Drew retweets Mike Cernovich who pushes a supplement called 'Gorilla Mindset.' These people are just fantastic. 

Trump's adoration right now clearly leans toward Dr.Oz because Dr. Drew is currently in brand repair mode after following the Trump/Fox News lead on encouraging everyone to ignore a global pandemic. That won't be easy. It'll take a few appearances with Adam Coroolla and some podcasts where he guides Steve-O through resisting impulsive temptations. Trump doesn't have room for that timeline. Dr. Oz will be the victor due to fortunate circumstance.

I'd love to start a band called "Poverty of Expectations", but honestly, it would be a better album title.

Yeah, sorry about that. I wasn't going to retype it. Whoever thought that was a good idea....

Maybe, but as an bastardized version of Dickens, Trump as Miss Havisham would be unforgettable. Except you might need to change the ending a little.

She has a daughter with a fever and has no food except for a little rice and no money. I am going to meet her to give her some money, no strings attached,  because we are friends.  It is not that complicated.

I have been somewhat suspicious of Clay Jenkins, Dallas County Judge, for a few years (his residency in Dallas County has been questionable, he flopped parties for election, etc.).

But this is leadership.  https://www.texastribune.org/2020/04/04/dallas-county-coronavirus-response-ahead-curve/

Not only is he doing it mostly right, he's doing it with some humility.

Quote

Each day, Dallas County Judge Clay Jenkins holds a noon phone call with about 250 first responders, agency heads and others trying to keep a handle on the county’s response to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

When he signs off, Jenkins makes an ask of them: Have grace toward one another, but also have grace toward yourself.

No he wasn't really talking to you, Raydog. He was just using your situation to clap back at Bama Chick for riling him earlier. He is just tiny dick raging....you can ignore.

I always get a kick out of imagining those guys listening to like some old Springsteen or Rolling Stones records, tapping their foot along to the beat and then suddenly getting really mad and outraged when they realize that they are listening to music that has a political message behind it.

I thought maybe Bama could find her way to getting at least half as riled up about human trafficking in the Philippines as she does about me answering Jimmy's question as to which deaths we should celebrate.

In the political Twister logic game of Trump supporters (or Russian bots), the discussion earlier regarding the unearthing of some Fauci comments made in 2017 at a conference at Georgetown has resulted in some amazing spin.

Dr. Fauci had warned about a 'surprise outbreak,' saying "there is no question that there will be a challenge to the coming administration in the arena of infectious diseases." This has now been taken, run through the laundry and is now in various forms:

'Fauci knew and prepared no plan because he is Deep State.'

"Fauci is a paid shill. He laid the groundwork for the PLANdemic days before the inauguration."

And so on. Many memes and tweets tie him to Bill Gates in some globalist plot as the doctor worked with the Gates Foundation. Big Pharma, anti-vaxxers all mixed together. Some are bot driven accounts, some are not. If Dr. Oz is the grasper and opportunist that I believe him to be, Fauci is going to be repatrioted back to NIH or let go. Don't know about Birx. Her name is also bandied about as Deep State, but not with the same amount of traction as she hasn't spoken on HCQ as much.

Weird how more of those folks are willing to pop a pill and see it as innocuous over an injection which they see as authoritarian and shades of mad science. It's like Dr. Salk never lived.

Yesterday, the number of daily deaths in the US dropped.  Might be an outlier.  Over the last few days, the number of daily deaths in Italy and Spain also dropped.  

It does make me wonder if there has been a shift in treatment that has been successful.  Not saying it's a particular cocktail of pharmaceuticals, but it might be.  Hopefully the trend holds.

Number of new cases went down too. I'm not sure if it being a Sunday helped that or not

What is the treatment? I'm not aware that any exists yet.

It is far more likely that the effects of social distancing are starting to show up.

Pretty much anything a doctor does is a treatment.  And they have definitely been trying different treatments, including Trump's magic drug, but also things like steroids to suppress an overactive immune system that might be causing too much inflammation. I have no idea what's been effective.  But, to see three curves break around the same time, when they had been on different trajectories gives me some hope that there is something that changed. (Like I say, the US rate may just be a wild point.)

What about inside trader Kelly Loeffler? What about her? Inside trader Kelly Loeffler is the leader of insider trading. Currently anyway. If inside trader Kelly Loeffler wasn't insider trading then she wouldn't be the leader of insider trading.

 

@WhatTheBuck. Maybe a variety of things they are trying? The plasma, etc? I believe the mitigation effort may start to show up in parts of the country, combined with yesterday being Palm Sunday for Christians.
