(MSNBC)   Despite Mark Esper's proclamation that we will have a COVID-19 vaccine just in time to reelect Trump, the Pentagon's own internal documents point to a much more grim scenario. But hey, we're winning, right?   ( divider line

Maybe the pgon meant "globally persistent" as in the USA will have a vaccine but the rest of the world won't get it until summer 2021. So that military needs to prep for that.

If we're lucky it will replace the nugat or the nut clusters in boxes of chocolate.

It's only a matter of time for Donnie to declare that the vaccine will be available the second week of November, but only to states that vote for him.
