In other news, the Trump regime is planning to allow commercial fishing in the protected waters of the Northeast Canyons and Seamounts Marine National Monument in New England. The conservation zone was created in 2016 under the Obama administration, so course it has to go.

Meanwhile, China says it will allow all foreign airlines including those from the United States to resume limited flights to and from the country, but the Trump regime is cutting the number of Chinese flights to just two per week which is fewer than before.

Everyone who works with Trump is eventually humiliated.

Finally, although the World Health Organization (WHO) resumed their clinical trial of hydroxychloroquine, Britain is ending theirs because the drug is "useless."

“We reviewed the data and concluded there is no evidence of a beneficial effect of hydroxychloroquine in patients hospitalised with COVID, and decided to stop enrolling patients to the hydroxychloroquine arm with immediate effect,” said Martin Landray, an Oxford University professor who is co-leading the so-called RECOVERY trial.

“This is not a treatment for COVID-19. It doesn’t work,” he said.

“This result should change medical practice worldwide,” he added. “We can now stop using a drug that is useless.

This week felt like it was two weeks long.

Have a good weekend.

    I very much hope that a Biden administration creates a new office with the sole purpose of reimplementing every single policy, executive order, signing statement and whatever else that Obama put in place that Trump undid and I hope they’re as blatant as possible about it. His or her only job will be to comb through the last 4 years of catastrophe and sabotage to figure out every single policy that Biden can put back in place simply with the stroke of a pen. There should be a signing ceremony at least once a week until they run out of stuff to re-up. The person who runs this office should be called THE OBAMA CZAR!!!

    Of course hydroxychloroquine is bullshit.

    The week has ended. Go in peace.

    • Of course. Because overfishing is a liberal plot to take away your freedom to eat critically-endangered fish. Or something. *facepalm*

    • My guess is that China had always intended to allow flights from the US and let the FAA know, but this presented an opportunity for Donald Trump to preen and posture and claim victory! over China.

    • Calling hydroxychloroquine “useless” would seem to be a bit of an understatement.

    • For the usual no particular reason:

    Have a safe weekend, all.
