Even that I could sorta get past... maybe Joe does have enough mental horsepower left to understand how badly attacking the President would hurt him right now. He has been in politics for 47 years, and some of it has to be instinct by now. But then I heard that Twitter was not allowing any messages wishing death on people, apparently in response to the President's condition. Twitter? The social media platform that has openly supported the likes of Antifa and BLM rioting? The same Twitter that pledges allegiance to the DNC every morning? That Twitter?

Remember when he sent Ivanka off to run the Ritz so he could bang Marla Maples?
Maybe this is something like that.
Say, wheres Kellyanne today? Anyone? Bueller?

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?
Now I'm concerned. Something's not right. Leopards do not change their spots, especially when those spots are tattooed on!
After the epidemic, which triggered much the same response as the current emergency, doctors and scientists began publishing insider accounts of what had happened in journals that are rarely seen by the general public. Some of them concerned the very toxic drugs used to treat SARS patients. These studies suggest that in the early days, patients with pneumonia were diagnosed with SARS because the symptoms – fever, headache, an aching body and a dry cough -were similar to those of pneumonia and flu. But the drugs they were given were much more toxic than those used for pneumonia, which could be why SARS gained the reputation for being such a deadly disease. At least some of the patients died from the treatment, not from the disease.
Coronavirus: a reliable test is badly needed. We don’t have one By Jerome Burne
Media coverage of the rapidly growing Coronavirus 2019 nCov epidemic is unanimous that official bodies are doing everything possible to contain it, using all the tools of modern medical science and public health resources. The UK government has committed 40 million pounds to research. We are told that this novel virus was rapidly identified, a test developed and those testing positive are being rapidly quarantined and treated with the latest medications. But there is a dissenting voice. David Crowe is a Canadian software and telecommunications engineer with a degree in mathematics and biology who has become an independent expert in 21st Century global infections such as SARS, Ebola and flu. Working from a database of 10,000 scientific papers, government, corporate and mainstream media reports, he has been raising fundamental questions about the way viral epidemics and are identified and treated.
A rush to judgement Crowe describes the current response as a ‘rush to judgement, based on the rapid application of an unproven test, made worse by the use of powerful unproven drugs with toxic side-effects on those who test positive.’ The Chinese seems to have tacitly acknowledged the issue by starting to change the way diagnoses are recorded – see below. Some of the evidence for his claim emerged in the aftermath of the last global epidemic caused by a coronavirus known as SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome). It was first reported in Asia in February 2003, spreading to more than two dozen countries around the world but was contained within the year. Out of the 8,098 who caught it, 774 died. After the epidemic, which triggered much the same response as the current emergency, doctors and scientists began publishing insider accounts of what had happened in journals that are rarely seen by the general public. Some of them concerned the very toxic drugs used to treat SARS patients.
These studies suggest that in the early days, patients with pneumonia were diagnosed with SARS because the symptoms – fever, headache, an aching body and a dry cough -were similar to those of pneumonia and flu. But the drugs they were given were much more toxic than those used for pneumonia, which could be why SARS gained the reputation for being such a deadly disease. At least some of the patients died from the treatment, not from the disease. Damage to blood cells and the liver For example, a report commissioned by a World Health Organization expert panel concluded that the antiviral drug ribavirin, widely used during the epidemic, caused the destruction of red blood cells (hemolytic anaemia) in one-third to two-thirds of patients and that 75% of them developed liver problems. The drug is also known to cause ‘flu-like symptoms such as fever, difficulty breathing, body aches and pains as well as being able to trigger psychiatric conditions such as depression, psychosis and aggressive behaviour.
Other reports showed that high dose corticosteroids, also widely used, caused lasting side effects, most notably serious neurological and bone problems. There is also evidence that these drugs, with their extremely unpleasant side effects, contributed to their deaths. Crowe’s research found that in the countries most affected by SARS, the rich ones – Singapore, Hong Kong and Canada – had a higher death rate than the poorer countries – China and Vietnam. This, he suggests, could have been due to high doses of the more expensive injectable ribavirin being used in the rich countries, while cheaper, low-dose, oral ribavirin was often used in poorer countries. SARS was so feared, not just because it was thought to be more deadly than other respiratory diseases, but also because it was believed to be highly infectious. But Crowe has evidence that this was a mistake too. It certainly doesn’t fit with an accidental experiment carried out at a Chinese hospital that mistakenly placed SARS and AIDS patients on the same floor of a hospital.
I was surprised to learn that the White House Corona Virus task force is being "kept in the dark" on the President's condition.

I also have trouble understanding why Donald would abandon Melania that way...
I´m certainly no doctor, but logic states that if he´s getting treatment with experimental drugs like Regeneron, then it´s most likely because he has a fever, because you don´t give usually give a patient experimental drugs unless there´s a real need for it.

I don’t have any details of the severity of the president’s condition, but when I hear that someone is hospitalized with Covid-19, that’s an indication that they have a more severe case,” said Ben-Aderet. “There is no benefit to being in the hospital otherwise.”
The three treatments that are available under emergency-use authorization by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for Covid-19 are only available in the hospital.
The compound is still experimental, however, and some doctors speculated that its use by Trump may indicate his condition is worse than disclosed. Unapproved drugs are given on a compassionate-use basis when the potential benefits are significant and the patient is willing to accept the unknown risks.
“I’m very concerned about the president’s team giving him an unvetted, untested treatment,” said Jeremy Faust, an emergency medicine doctor at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston and editor of Brief19, a daily roundup of news on SARS-CoV-2 and Covid-19 research. “This has not been shown to work in clinical trials.”
Faust said he was concerned that the move to give Trump the Regeneron drug reflected desperation.
Hospital Stay Broadens Array of Treatments Available to Trump
After being given an experimental antibody cocktail and relocating to a military hospital, US President Donald Trump has now been prescribed the unproven COVID-19 treatment remdesivir.
Regeneron said it agreed to supply a single dose, given through an IV, for Mr Trump at the request of his physician under "compassionate use" provisions, when an experimental medicine is provided on a case-by-case emergency basis, while studies continue.
Mr Trump's doctors "must be sufficiently concerned with what they are seeing that they decided to use an experimental medicine … Experimental drugs are by definition risky," said Edward Jones-Lopez, an infectious disease specialist at the Keck School of Medicine at the University of Southern California in Los Angeles.
Donald Trump has now been given at least two experimental COVID-19 treatments. Here's what we know about them
President Donald Trump is now "in a race" against the coronavirus, the CEO of biotechnology company Regeneron said Friday after the drug maker provided a dose of its experimental antibody treatment to the President.
"He's in a race where his immune system is racing against the virus, and if the virus wins you can have dire consequences, obviously, and what our antibodies do is we make it a fair fight," Dr. Leonard Schleifer told CNN's Wolf Blitzer.

Earlier, Dr Conley said Mr Trump "remains fatigued but in good spirits" after being treated with an experimental antibody cocktail for COVID-19.
The 74-year-old President received an intravenous dose of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals' dual antibody and was also taking zinc, vitamin D, famotidine, melatonin and aspirin.

Blatant written: If Trump dies and any details get out it could be a conspiracy, no one want's their hands dirty and be seen as an enemy of him. "It's all just politics, nothing personal".
Suddenly you will not hear anything about riots from the media either.
