Every Trump supporter has all of a sudden earned a biochemistry degree it seems, they won't shut up about this junk.

What can go wrong??

Can't say I'm surprised he would replace Dr. Fauci with Dr. Say anything for a buck.

Could've been worse, he could've picked a TV doctor like McDreamy or Dr. Phil.

And that is literally what I just said to my mother.

"Trump wants to replace Fauci?" 
"Why?"
"Why is easy. The problem is who." 
Mom thinks for a minute. . . .
"What TV doctor will get Trump the best ratings?"
Mom: "OMG NOT OZ!"

/sigh

I glanced at the nutrition facts on my cereal box this morning, so I really don't see why my medical credentials aren't as good as Dr. Fauci's.

This is the pure capitalism that Republicans want. If you don't like what a doctor or scientist says, just shop around for someone to tell you what you want to hear.
 
2020-04-06 1:42:07 PM  
This was inevitable.

Dr. Fauci actually knows what he's doing. The Flim Flam Führer hates people who are actually smart.

This needs to be a new internet rule:  "There's always a tweet."
 
2020-04-06 1:44:22 PM  
If that happens Dr Fauci should do a daily discussion on another channel about the disease.  Interview, prepared update, special guests of his choosing, question/answer with "callers" or answering email questions.  The whole deal.  At the same time as the press conference, moving to stay in direct competition with it for "ratings".  Even some Trumpers would watch that.  They won't admit it, but they don't have to as Nielson ratings come direct from the TV box now.

Trump everyone wants to be famous
Anyone who isn't famous isn't smart
Therefore anyone who is famous is de facto smarter than anonymous hacks slaving away doing the work

Just imagine how extensive / damaging the kompromat *has* to be on McConnell et al to allow this shiat show.
 
2020-04-06 1:44:40 PM  
Of course he is.

Dr. Oz has been cited multiple times by Trumps Chief of Staff - first as a source of down playing the threat, then as a potential hype man for a cure. Oz has been on Hannity every day pimping out his weasels worded "anecdotal research" and potential remedies. My assumption is that by presenting himself as fighting the good fight he can then turn around and sell more supplements and miracle cures like the farking snake oil salesman he is.

Next, we'll replace NOAA with Sibyl the Soothsayer.

i was reading dune stuff lately and the more i read the more Trump makes me think of Leto II except instead of being a tyrant to show humanity it's flaws, he make humanity Realise the Power of Stupidity and Dangers of pandering to morons.

Also both seem to be sentient worms.

Note the touching sprungers in the center of the picture.

Such a subtle detail, but perfectly framed and pointed to make you consider both of these people as a virus, dangerous, and worse, touching. Red and white, seasonally, remind us of Valentine's Day.

I love artists.
 
2020-04-06 1:49:05 PM  
I mean, WE (as in the United States) would be boned if Dr. Fauci were replaced, but Dr. Fauci has actually been getting death threats, probably from covidiots and Trumpiots who don't like the good doctor showing up Orange Julius Caesar. This should NOT be happening, but here we are. In a way this would be good for Dr. Fauci. We probably don't deserve him anyway.
