Well, in case you were worried Dr. Anthony Fauci had too much influence. According to the Washington Examiner: The country’s leading infectious diseases expert and key member of the White House coronavirus task force says he has not briefed the president on the coronavirus pandemic in more than two months. In an interview with the Financial Times, Dr. Anthony Fauci explained that his reputation for
This is an email sent by White House Correspondents’ Association President Jonathan Karl of ABC News to the WHCA members: Dear colleagues, The WHCA has been informed that a member of the press corps has tested positive for COVID-19. The individual attended briefings on Monday 7/6 and Wednesday 7/8 afternoons and wore a mask the entire time they were on the White House complex. The
The White House did not officially announce that the United States was withdrawing from the corrupt, China-coddling World Health Organization. Instead, it notified Congress, and Congress notified everyone else. Sen. Bob Menendez, the senior Democrat on the Foreign Affairs Committee, tweeted out the news. And he’s not too happy. Congress received notification that POTUS officially withdrew the U.S. from the @WHO in the midst of
It’s not clear where he caught it. But what is clear to me is that holding an indoor rally without social distancing amid the coronavirus was a bad idea. And it ought to stop. According to the Washington Examiner: Herman Cain tested positive for the coronavirus and was hospitalized less than two weeks after attending President Trump’s campaign rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma. Cain, a 74-year-old former pizza
President Trump Wednesday responded to all the crap he is taking for not wearing a mask, saying they are a good idea and that he uses them himself. Trump told Fox News Business: I’m all for masks. I think masks are good. If I were in a group of people and I was close, I would. I have. People have seen me wearing one if
Warning, this is very gory. Vice President Biden during an event in Pennsylvania Thursday said that the coronavirus had resulted in the deaths of 120 million Americans. Actually, the number is about 126,000. And then, right as he committed his gaffe and seemed to look confused, the live video stream cut out. Strange coincidence . . .
White House coronavirus advisor Anthony Fauci told Congress unequivocally that there had been no instructions to slow down on testing for the virus. President Trump joked during the rally in Tulsa that he had asked his people to not test so much because it was making the virus look so prevalent. But the media are sure he was serious, and the Biden campaign is already
I don’t think Trump is racist. He certainly comes from a time when a joke like this would not be considered racist. I mean, they used to put out entire books of ethnic humor, for every ethnicity. But he certainly doesn’t need to give his opponents ammunition to say that he is racist. And he might consider catching up with the times a bit more.
White House National Economic Council Director Larry Kudlow sought Friday to calm markets concerned that the coronavirus is roaring back. Excerpts from remarks he made today: I spoke to our health experts at some length last evening. They are saying there is no second spike. We are not going to shut down the economy. What we are seeing is, certain posts are seeing a bit of
Trump Derangement Syndrome may be denying people access to a potentially useful drug in the fight against COVID-19. And now, we may never know whether the drug works. From an opinion piece by editorial page writer Allysia Finely: The Lancet published a study on May 22 that purported to find a 30% increased risk of death for hospitalized Covid-19 patients treated with HCL or chloroquine,
I think President Trump’s instinct not to wear a mask in public is correct, despite the obsession in the press with the issue. He’s not being vain. He knows it’s a bad look for the leader of the free world. The president should project strength. Hiding behind a mask suggests weakness. It’s a risk, but with the proper precautions, he’s not likely to get sick
“Im taking it, hydroxychloroquine. Right now,” Trump said. “A couple of weeks ago, I started taking it.” Trump said many frontline workers were taking it and that it couldn’t hurt. White House physician Sean Conley later confirmed in a memo that Trump was taking the drug. As has been previously reported, two weeks ago one of the President’s support staff tested positive for COVID-19. The
