Trump pushes FDA to use anti-malaria drug for coronavirus

Note to readers:

As we face one of the greatest crises in our lifetimes, led by one of the most incompetent leaders in our history, as we “shelter in place” in California and undoubtably soon in other states and cities, as we sink deeper into this dystopian reality that is not fiction, we still need to smile, laugh (but alas, not hug). Hopefully my little bit of satirical humor will help. I hope so. Because if we can’t laugh in the face of adversity, we’re doomed.

The Washington Post reported that on Friday at a CDC photo-op in Atlanta, President Trump talked about the number of people infected with the coronavirus in other countries vs. the United States. He also compared coronavirus disease with influenza.

Trump’s Words on Virus Calm the Nation…Not!

In an interview with Sean Hannity on Fox News, United States President Donald Trump said, “A lot of people will have this, and it’s very mild. “They will get better very rapidly. They don’t even see a doctor. They don’t even call a doctor.”

Trump: Heat will kill coronavirus

At a recent campaign rally President Donald John Trump (I) gave the cheering crowd his predictions regarding the fast-spreading coronavirus rocking mainland China and the rest of Asia. (Reports that no “Orientals” were allowed at the rally have not been confirmed.)

Calling it “rough stuff,” Trump assuaged the crowd that it will “work out fine,” and that with warmer weather, the virus will die.
