But His Emails

In other news, company representatives from Pfizer, whose coronavirus vaccine is expected to be the first, say they won't be submitting it to the government for approval until after the election.

That doesn't mean Trump won't claim there's a vaccine even if there isn't yet. He already has.

Meanwhile, Trump's town hall on NBC, which he scheduled last night just to compete in ratings with Joe Biden's simultaneous town hall on ABC, drew just 10 million viewers compared to Biden's 12 million. Whoops!

Finally, the World Health Organization (WHO) says the latest coronavirus miracle drug promoted by the Trump regime, remdesivir, does not actually reduce deaths.

A study coordinated by the World Health Organization has indicated that remdesivir, along with three other potential drug treatments for the coronavirus, has “little or no effect” on death rates among hospitalized patients. [...]

The results indicated that the remdesivir, hydroxychloroquine, lopinavir/ritonavir and interferon drug treatment regimens “appeared to have little or no effect on 28-day mortality or the in-hospital course of COVID-19 among hospitalized patients.”

Remdesivir is one of the drugs given to U.S. President Donald Trump after he tested positive for the coronavirus two weeks ago.

I'm off to cook dinner for my dad. This jalapeno popper chicken skillet, along with an avocado and tomato salad, is what I'm making tonight. I experimented on myself with it last week and it turned out great.

Have a good weekend.

    • Pfizer is doing the right thing, which is kind of gobsmacking. Okay, they don’t want to get too closely associated with the Trump administration’s botched pandemic response, but still, credit where it’s due.

    • According to Eric Trump, his father was given a (or the, I don’t recall how he phrased it) vaccine while at Walter Reed. The boy just ain’t very bright—takes after his father that way.

    • Amusingly, even when MSNBC, CNBC and Telemundo are added in, Joe Biden’s town hall still outdrew Donald Trump’s. That’s gotta sting.

    • *shrug* That’s what science is about. Remdesivir wasn’t effective against Covid-19, fine, move on. (Of course, there will be a very vocal group insisting Deep State scientists are suppressing remdesivir, just as they’re suppressing hydroxychloroquine and chugging bleach and UV light and all the rest. As Dwight Eisenhower said of opponents of New Deal social programs, “Their number is negligible and they are stupid.”)

    • Hope dinner came off without a hitch.

    • Who are the worst neighbors?

    Have a safe weekend, all.

      ROFL!

    Finding out that a Trump promised miracle cure doesn’t work as he says he it does is like finding out that snake oil doesn’t come from an actual snake. Or as Billie Eilish would say…DUH!

    Of course more people watched the Biden townhall meeting. How often can one listen to the same predictable, deranged, discordant, paranoid ramble from the same belligerent moron before it just gets boring.

    Safe weekend folks.

      Yikes.

      Forget the hair, forget the awkward camera work, forget the straight-outta-Calgary choreography. No, it’s the wardrobe choices that make the video special. The sub-Miami Vice pastel jacket, the skin-tight leather (?) trousers, the beaters in colors straight from the Fisher-Price collection, the headband that matches the shirt. Exquisite. *chef’s kiss*

      The ‘80s were emphatically not an attractive decade. (Some of the music didn’t suck, though.)
