This motherfukers trying to turn this into a bloodbath isn't he?

Anyone started a pool on when the first shipment is seized "for the national stockpile?"

The motherfarker is going to withhold it completely because he's pissed that the drug he touted was a load of bullshiat.

Ahh, been waiting for the ghost of H1N1 Past.
It will be the same mailing list as was for Tamiflu.

Really want trump to say that Acetaminophen (Tylenol) is a good treatment for covid-19 and taking a whole bottle at one time will protect the person for the rest of their life from covid-19.

Only in solidly blue states.  Swing states and red ones will probably get plenty of the drug.

Should we still be listening to Dr. Renfield?  She seems to be all in with the administration.

They're going to make people take a loyalty-to-Trump test first.

I thought the president's handlers decided Remdesivir was a dead end and were trying to get him to stick with hydroxychloroquine.

Yes, the most lethal OTC drug there is. I wouldn't be surprised.

So, Birx is the new scapegoat?

The ineptitude with this administration is appalling.

Find a fu$&*ing message and stick to it.

At  the least, we can untangle the lies, as opposed to just dismissing everything that is said is a lie.
 
2020-05-08 11:08:40 PM  
What's that? You need some Remdesivir? Oh sure, we can send you some, but first I need you to do me a little favour though......
 
2020-05-08 11:11:02 PM  
It's not ineptitude.  It's grift.

1 -  Confiscate drugs from state

b)  Distribute to company which is controlled by proxy

III, Resell drugs to state at inflated rate.

No. Worse than that. Swing state? You get meds. Solid blue or red? Fork off. Leaning blue or red? You get meds.

Anyone could get fishtank pills. But this, this must be handled carefully.

It's almost like they knew they were selling dangerous bullsh*t. But, that's impossible.

Right?

You know what? Keep it. I'd rather suffocate from my own bodily fluids building up in my lungs than kiss the orange king's ass.

Watch out for that "Trump test".
 
2020-05-08 11:16:18 PM  
So lets see.. either they're going to earmark the bulk of the initial distribution for those hospitals serving as regional Covid-19 treatment centers where other hospitals send their Covid patients and the highest concentration of infections would be, or they're going to flail around like farking idiots and it will go to random places and people who shout the loudest at dolt45.

Also, fark Birx.
 
2020-05-08 11:20:15 PM  
They won't be distributing it. They MIGHT distribute hydroxychloroquine, or something else that doesn't work.  And nice letters signed by Trump.  Maybe.  If they don't just send body bags and a picture of Miller flipping them the finger.

I wonder how that would work in this case. Didn't the company donate it free of charge? Handling fee, perhaps?

California is going to order some, send their troopers to protect it in transit, the feds will try to seize it, some one gets nervous and pulls the trigger... Civil War II

There is only enough for 200k patients, currently.

That's a lot of rich f*ckheads who didn't get to buy a doomsday bunker when they were having the firesale. It'll be marketed to them.


/interesting to see if this model was applied to another industry, like the automakers or healthcare. First a hospital, then an ambulance service. Maybe Donnie's bullsh*t will normalize things that could be used to help.

Yeast No 7: Find a fu$&*ing message and stick to it.


mrs. edmo was just on the phone with an old friend, conservative, likely voted for Trump. She said exactly the above is pretty much harsh crictism by Trumper standards. She's not going to vote for him again and probably dearly wishes the GOP would run someone else.

/there's a lot of people like her out there and Trump knows it.

Yeah but before that all trump supporters should drink a gallon of bleach

He's left a bad taste in a lot of mouths.

fta:

A leading hospital in Michigan was denied doses of remdesivir, Rep. Debbie Dingell, D-Mich., said Friday. Michigan Medicine at the University of Michigan has treated more than 500 COVID-19 patients, including more than 80 currently hospitalized, she said.

Michigan?  hmmm... wonder why they were denied
 
2020-05-09 12:22:00 AM  
Yeah.  I remember reading all those stories about people passing in hospitals just because they couldn't get ventilators.  I think it was thousands.

Maybe even hundreds of thousands

Jared is going to swap placebos into the national stockpile and sell the real pills to Russia, isn't he?

/gotta cover the vig on those gangster loans
 
2020-05-09 4:42:54 AM  
The states have been screaming that the feds have left them to fend for themselves on PPE, thus causing bidding wars, instead of coordinating the distribution at the national level. So here you go, wish granted, Trump gets to decide. Why aren't you happy?
 
2020-05-09 9:29:36 AM  
amazing how few of those defense act ventilators will ever see usage

And then blame the doctors/scientists when those people die.

I believe selenium is even more toxic.

Well he is doing a good thing, he is going to punish the blue states for supplying all the money they use in red states.
