yes trump has been the one with the best intel and reaction to this on the world stage.  because he suggested it so early many other doctors around the world have had the time to do proper testing. i admit his leadership is whats driving the boat right now, you got me

That's some world class spinning there.  True leadership is not popping off before the information is verified.  He was premature.  And there are plenty of things in life where being premature is far from a positive. 

I have something to add, so that's why I'm quoting my other response. 

 

 

The medical profession is riddled with drugs and treatments that showed promise in early trials, ultimately to become utter failures when larger clinical studies were conducted.   There are also numerous drugs and treatments that were intended for one purpose, only to end up working in different ways.   Think Viagra for the latter.  

 

The orange one popped off before those larger and follow up studies had been completed.   That is not leadership.   True leadership is waiting for all the information, not jumping to conclusions.

I mean he's not wrong. How the democrats can't bring forth a more current and challenging candidate is beyond me. I really liked Mayor Pete

Ditto my thoughts. Many here think he has a decent chance to win though... I have my doubts but we’ll see this whole pandemic threw a real wrench in things.

So what's makes his son-in-law Jared Kushner qualified to head the Coronavirus task team?

I thought that was VP Pence's job? I believe Kirshner was involved in moving the USA embassy to Jerusalem. Also believe he was a registerred Democrat before marrying the daughter. Also believe the daughter was a Democrat at one time.

I believe the early work with the malaria drugs was done in South Korea, Japan and Australia. Currently 1500 patients receiving treatment in New York. Trump closed China off and was criticized but gets credit now? Tough times and tough decisions.

“You have instances where, in cities, they’re running out, but the state still has a stockpile,” Kushner said.  “And the notion of the federal stockpile was it’s supposed to be our stockpile; it’s not supposed to be state stockpiles that they then use.”

 

I don't care if both Jared/Ivanka were democrats.  Neither seem qualified for the Government positions they hold.   Nepotism.   Look it up.

Unqualified kids? All three Trump kids have business careers before politics. Political appointees are a matter of course in Washington, 4000 I believe. I had heard that 30,000 jobs are impacted with a election turnover. 

Other than Ivanka's clothing line they have all worked for daddy. In a company under numerous investigation from before and after the election.  Yes there are always appointments...but then there is Ben Carson and Betsy Devos....

wow that was useful. I can't believe you'd think Ivanka or 'lil Don were qualified for anything, but OK.

It’s amazing what some will allow themselves to believe to stay on the right side of their ideological bent. Hell, even mainstream news in the US is trying to view Dumbpf in a presidential light. The propaganda machine down there is truly sociopathic. 
 

Same for the Democratic Party. They could have easily ran a candidate who represents a future that means something to the young voters, but instead they chose to put their chips behind a senile candidate so that those who crave power keep power.

He also wondered if a standard flu vaccine would have a positive effect on the Coronavirus. Nice try at spinning Trump being ahead of the curve on anything...:lol:

'Ted tries to laugh it off, but Trump is dead serious. Trump says, "We're gonna play these last six holes for the championship." And Ted's like, "Oh, well, I'm playing with my son, but thanks anyway." But Trump says, "It's okay. Your son can play, too." So what are you going to do? He's the president. It's his course. They end up playing.

Apparently, they get to a hole with a big pond in front of the green. Both Ted and his son hit the ball on the green, but Trump hits his in the water. By the time they get to the hole, though, Trump is lining up the son's ball. Only now it's his ball and the caddie has switched it.The son is like, "That's my ball!" But Trump's caddie goes, "No, this is the president's ball; your ball went in the water." Ted and his son look at each other confused, not sure if this is really happening.'

Roughly translated it means:

I taught Donald Trump everything he knows about cheating at golf. 
That’s what they covered at the historic meetings a while back. :

Didn’t know that you get fir of the U.N.

Don’t see the difference. 
 

Don’t need any because I bucked a tree a while back and I have lots of wood, thanks anyway.

 

Thanks for the heads up.

it can't get trump sorry to dash your hopes     

 

his cure that we banned has gone through proper medical trials and it works.  See France medical news for confirmation.   Hydroxychloroquine is legit, you heard it hear first, this is the beginning of the end

 

 

Hannity announced this a few weeks ago.

Heard there first, and then the commander in chief himself blurted news of this secret cure out during one of his pressers,

 

Nobody’s been officially cured yet.

Well his father is a convicted felon so the apple don’t fall far from the tree.

Also he is sticking it to the boss’s daughter.

were a day or so away from the exact same trial completing in New York.  It's been 100% effective and many other anti parasitic are being tested and having positive results

And yet the Germans are touting a 100 year old tuberculosis drug name VPN 1019? as an interim cure. Do I get a participation medal for being the first to bring this up?

 

I saw it on the TV so it must be true.

:bigblush:


Buddy tested positive for Covid -19. Buddy drank lots of water. Buddy has now recovered. Therefore the cure is water. Am I doing this right?
