Trump Announces COVID-19 Cure

Posted by Warm Southern Breeze on Wednesday, June 17, 2020

President Trump announced to little fanfare or global acclaim, that he had discovered a cure for COVID-19.

The world’s leaders took no notice, neither did global news gathering and reporting interests.

Neither did the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, nor the Food and Drug Administration – which recently publicly stated that they have withdrawn their temporary emergency approval for experimental use of the prescription medication hydroxychloroquine to treat COVID-19, and stated officially that ” FDA has revoked the emergency use authorization (EUA) to use hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine to treat COVID-19 in certain hospitalized patients.”

President Trump has frequently touted hydroxychloroquine as a treatment and/or cure, and has frequently boasted that that he takes it himself to protect against COVID-19 infection.

Why did he do that?

Self interest.

On April 6 this year, the New York Times wrote that “Mr. Trump himself has a small personal financial interest in Sanofi, the French drugmaker that makes Plaquenil, the brand-name version of hydroxychloroquine.”

So when Trump announced that he’d found a cure for COVID-19, one might understand why he received little-to-no acclaim.

His solution and cure for the novel coronavirus COVID-19 SARS-CoV-2 was utterly simple, however.

And yet, no authority the world over – including non-experts – would dare say his solution was recommended.

No one.

What was Trump’s solution?

Stop testing.

The Idiot in Chief actually said that Monday, 15 June at the White House, in the Cabinet Room at 2:40 P.M. EDT.

At least that’s what the White House reported that he said to America’s Senior Citizens in “Remarks by President Trump in Roundtable Discussion on Fighting for America’s Seniors.”

“Again, our testing is so far advanced. It’s so much bigger and better than any other country, that we’re going to have more cases. We’re always going to have more cases. And as I said this morning, that’s probably the downside of having good testing is you find a lot of cases that other countries, who don’t even test, don’t have. If you don’t test, you don’t have any cases. If we stopped testing right now, we’d have very few cases, if any.”

It’s just mind-boggling to imagine that he would even conceive of such a hare-brained scheme as that.

But, that’s our Idiot in Chief for you.

That’s the same one who said:

“Now, the virus that we’re talking about having to do ― you know, a lot of people think that goes away in April with the heat ― as the heat comes in. Typically, that will go away in April. We’re in great shape though. We have 12 cases ― 11 cases, and many of them are in good shape now.” [Feb. 10]

“Looks like by April, you know, in theory, when it gets a little warmer, it miraculously goes away.” [Feb. 10]

“I really believe they are going to have it under control fairly soon. You know in April, supposedly, it dies with the hotter weather. And that’s a beautiful date to look forward to.” [Feb. 10]

“We think and we hope, based on all signs that the problem goes away in April.” [Feb. 13]

“There’s a theory that, in April, when it gets warm ― historically, that has been able to kill the virus. So we don’t know yet; we’re not sure yet.” [Feb. 14]

“I think it’s going to work out fine. I think when we get into April, in the warmer weather, that has a very negative effect on that and that type of a virus.” [Feb. 14]

So officially, we no longer have a problem, and Trump has cured COVID-19.

Thanks be to Trump!

Hail to the Idiot in Chief.

Rex Tillerson’s assessment of July 20, 2017 remains correct:

Donald J. Trump is a “fucking moron.”
