I remember reading some speculation about Regeneron making it less likely that you'd build immunity back when he was first treated with it. Dexamethasone does a number on your immune system as well, which could have further limited his ability to become naturally immune.

As a nice bonus, that absolute twatwaffle Doug Mastriano has tested positive. For those unfamiliar, he's a maskhole and the organiser of that press event in Gettysburg recently where Trumpanzees threatened to stamp their little feet and hold their breaths until the election was overturned.

I don't think I have ever heard of someone being called a "twatwaffle" before, but I'm definitely stealing it. After Mastriano said future historians would look back on his "hearing" as the start of the successful reversal of Trump's loss, I threw up a little in my mouth.

"falsely claimed" he was immune.

Why falsely? If Trump authentically was infected with SARS-CoV-2, at this point it's 95% that he is immune. Yes, he could be re-infected, but he'll be able to quickly fight it off without facing symptoms or becoming a significant risk of infecting others.
 
2020-11-30 5:27:06 AM  
I sometimes wonder if it would have been worse had Trump died of Covid. There's a "Hitler in his bunker" feel, where Trump is too mad and incompetent and paranoid to make real harm. But what if he would have been replaced by someone competent ?

I shiver just thinking about it.

In case anyone cares, my rona test was negative.  It was a rapid test, and I'm wondering if I should go get another one (I have it scheduled) on the 8th.  Just to be sure.  Because this fever won't die.

Fever?  That's not good.

My aunt and uncle decide to get tested before Thanksgiving, just to make sure they were clear.  They were tested a week and a half before Thanksgiving.. and I think they're still waiting for results.

It really isn't.  It's been like a week and it just won't f*cking stop.  It's averaging lower, but I have stuff to do!  We're moving!  Technically I'm supposed to attend closing today at 2pm but.. fever!  So no, I'm not doing that, even with a mask.  I'm not that much of an asshole.

Ugh.  I hope your people are negative.

My sister and her family are buying a house and moving here to St. Louis County in the next couple of weeks, from Kansas.  Course, after Republicans made a clean sweep of Missouri statewide offices, I'm tempted to tell them to keep moving and find a more civilized state..

My aunt and uncle should be fine.. they probably got their test ranked as low priority, since they have no symptoms and aren't currently in a hospital.

It would have been better. Maybe his cult would have actually been scared sh*tless and started wearing masks then, because they're definitely emboldened now that their God-king singlehandedly "defeated" the virus.

Once again big talker Don, who claimed at many rallies how he was immune and can go kiss everyone in the crowd, shows people how he exactly is -- a coward.

If he thought he was immune, he wouldn't have freaked out.

But at this point, we all basically know that everything he says in public is a lie.....

Hope he gets it again.  I've read somewhere that those who were reinfected had worse symptoms.  But I would imagine the sample size is pretty small at this point.

Well you see they're coming from Kansas, so maybe MO looks better to them.  But you're correct - keep driving til you see more Biden signs than Trump signs.

I don't know about the former, but using steroids has been generally contraindicated in infection because they are often potent immune system suppressors. Indeed, after organ transplants, that's why you're taking them, to keep the immune system from eating your new organ.

One of the hard parts of COVID-19 treatment is finding the line between "suppressing the immune system is likely to worsen the course of disease" and "not suppressing the immune system is likely to result in death" after the immune system goes on a runaway because of a cytokine storm. One of the reasons for the reduction in death toll recently has been a much better idea of where that line lies.

Don't get me wrong - corticosteroids are very powerful tools in modern medicine, but like all powerful tools, they have the capability of great harm.

Effective slurs typically have hard consonants and repetition of a sound.

Twatwaffle has both. It has 3 repetitions, hard consonants first, next soft consonants. Most people are at least familiar with "twat" as a bad word. The "twat" in twatwaffle calls the audience to attention. The soft sounds in "waffle" combined with "waffle" being a benign breakfast food is nonsensical, when it follows the vulgarity of "twat".

Nonsense is confusing and confusion is destabilizing.

Best used sparingly as a sneak attack. If someone is uncharacteristically wtf, and that someone has never heard you say "twatwaffle", that's a perfect time to use it.

It's not like his reckless activities would have let him avoid it.  I think he got it, tried to ignore it for as long as possible, until they had to drag him out of the White House and give him the real world version of the SHIELD 'Tahiti' treatment, like Agent Coulson got to come back from the dead.
