OK, he's probably tired, busy, but the White House earlier said they were having to slow him down because he was working too hard. Working too hard? Since when has Trump ever not tweeted because he was working too hard? The harder he works, the more he tweets!
Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!
Plus, could we please stop calling it the "Chinese" virus. Think about the optics of this for a minute, something that's being publicly associated with China has sickened multiple senior government officials, including the both the President and the first lady, and is keeping people indoors out of fear for their lives.
Do we really want to give them credit for this?
Apparently Melania is still at the White House. That did surprise me, as I would have expected her to accompany her husband to the hospital.
So I started digging a little. The cocktail Trump was apparently given was a product produced by Regeneron Pharmaceuticals called REGN-COV2 . It's an artificial antibody soup designed to target the Chinese virus. Damn good idea on paper! But as I read through Regeneron's website, I realized something: if they can make antibodies to attack the Chinese virus, what else can they make? Could there be something in that highly experimental drug cocktail that might make the Chinese virus worse? Or at least mimic the effects of the Chinese virus?

Interesting thread. A person is struck in the face with the fact that they have been fed bullsh*t.
Melania cares nothing at all about DJT. That much is obvious. Wouldn't even give him a simple hug after the debate.
Biden, while a complete POS that I would never nominate to mow my lawn, is not a total monster.
Covid-19 is real, and people can and have died from it. Lots of people. Trump is no exception. He's probably very sick, and being as he is old, fat, and out of shape, he may be in real trouble.
Democrats, while I don't agree with them, are not evil and they're not actively trying to destroy the country. They just have different opinions.
Are people here just now coming to face these facts?
At a certain point, however, the host response is so strong that its effect can be counterproductive. For example, numerous immune cells can enter our lungs and cause the membrane through which oxygen normally passes from the air into the blood to thicken. The exchange of gases is restricted, and in the worst case, ventilation may be necessary.
Sometimes the reaction can overshoot and be directed against healthy cells as well. This could also be the case with the novel coronavirus. So drugs are also being tested that suppress an excessive immune reaction and that are already known from the treatment of autoimmune diseases. The balance between protective and overly aggressive immune processes in dealing with the coronavirus is currently a big mystery.
