The orange turd, receiving his experimental treatment after testing positive for the Covid 19 virus.

Keep that in mind…

    And also, it should be mentioned:

    This goes without saying…of course.

      What’s really silly is that excessive crowd of white coats behind Conley. Purely for show. Also, where are the essential nurses and respiratory techs in their scrubs?

  4. Pat Johnson says:

    He knew he had it yet insisted on going out without a mask thus becoming a super spreader.

    I have zero sympathy. None. To be that careless, that indifferent is a whole new universe of arrogance and stupidity.

    Will be so thankful when this lying fool is gone!

    Sanjay Gupta’s analysis of Trump’s condition is telling. I trust his opinion. Trump is very sick. If he survives, he is likely to have serious lasting health problems and be unable to serve as president.

    I think we need to prepare for Pence as the Republican candidate. I am not looking forward to that. Pence is disciplined, ruthless and smarter than he appears to be. He knows how to play the long game. He has been waiting for a chance to become president since he was a young man growing up in Columbus.

    • dakinikat says:

      Pence is a fanatical end timer. I would not trust one with the football.

    • Enheduanna says:

      Pence is so very unpopular and unlikeable, even with magats. Nobody likes an unctuous boot-licker.

      • lililam says:

        Well, Pence can assume the office under the 25th amendment, if it is invoked, but I am unaware of any mechanism for his name to magically appear on any ballot. Without his name on the ballot, I do not see Pence “winning” in November or becoming s candidate. His tenure, if it happens at all, would be very limited unless we enter the twilight zone.

        • Beata says:

          The 168 members of the RNC can vote to choose another candidate. That is the mechanism. It might not be Pence. But it is quite possible.

          • Beata says:

            And a replacement Republican presidential candidate doesn’t need to be the name on the ballot since voters in fact vote for electors, not candidates.

          • lililam says:

            I believe it is too late for the RNC to vote to change the name on the ballot, although it may not be too late on some states. People have already voted on ballots that cannot be retroactively changed. It is true that the electors may be able to support Pence, but the house needs to certify.

        • Beata says:

          We have entered the Twilight Zone. It’s a badly written episode. Let’s hope it’s over soon.

    Good job, MM. Appreciate the tweets.
    I do have to say that osteopath doctors in my experience are good, more a holistic approach.

    • NW Luna says:

      Yes, I don’t understand the implications that D.O.s are incompetent. They’re equivalent to M.D.s in every place I’ve practiced. I think it’s an expression of the M.D. “major deity” complex. The problem with Dr. Conley is not the type of doctorate, but his lies and obfuscations.

  7. dakinikat says:

    Have you been using the block editor JJ? They’re forcing us mostly to use it now. So was wondering how writing today went for you?

    • Minkoff Minx says:

      I’m still using classic editor via the WP app. I don’t know what I will do when I have to switch over. That is why most of my post are links only. I have so much trouble with WordPress.

      • dakinikat says:

        Well, we have to switch or pay $283 for it as a plug in. So, whatever you doing today worked. We’ve got the blog charge this month as it is and I don’t feel like adding that much for a max of 2 years of support when that is all we would use. It’s kind’ve a hot mess right now to use the blocks as far as I’m concerned though although you can get the classic tool bar up for you.

      • bostonboomer says:

        JJ, you can still use classic in the block editor. You have to choose the classic block. But I can’t figure out how to put in tags.

  8. NW Luna says:

    “Expected lung findings,” uh-huh. Does this mean they expected to see covid-19 ‘ground-glass’ appearance showing pulmonary damage and did find this? So much vagueness in what they say.

    • bostonboomer says:

      I think it means the expected damage to his lungs. At least that is what several doctors said on Twitter.

  9. djmm says:

    I suspect “expected findings” means the lungs do not look good.

    They are still not revealing when the last negative test for the President took place.

    It is important that they are hiding this. It is likely that the President discovered he was sick and thought he could hide it. But when did he know?

    What we know is that the President began experiencing symptoms at least as early as Thursday and most likely Wednesday. Working backwards, that suggests that he was infected between September 24 and October 3.

    He could have been ill — and known it — for a lot longer than we have been told. And he knowingly put people at risk — maybe a lot more people than previously thought.

    • Enheduanna says:

      Yes I think he was hoping to hide it. He only admitted it right as his symptoms broke out, bigly.

    • djmm says:

      Don’t know how I got off by a week: I should have written that the days between Sept. 17 and Sept. 26 are the likely infection dates for the President, based on his symptoms.

      The President is a lunatic to expose the Secret Service members to a deadly illness, so that he could get an ego boost. This should be criminal.

  10. Enheduanna says:

    Dump heading back to WH? I bet he bullied them into it. Doctors can’t be happy.

  11. lililam says:

    I have no idea how sick Trump is, but I don’t think the fact that he is on 3 major treatments that are usually reserved for those that have severe symptoms is not necessarily definitive. Knowing Trump, he is likely demanding that he be provided cutting edge treatment, no holds barred, regardless of medical necessity. And his doctor appears to be yet another person who is easily intimidated by you know who and despite being a medical professional, would go along with it. He didn’t look good, however, without his bronzer.

  13. MsMass says:

    I am loving the gay men taking over the hashtag ProudBoys. So creative.

  14. RonStill4Hills says:

    Nobody has any faith that we are getting the truth out of the Administration. I am seeing competing conspiracy theories, “he is faking”, “he is really sick and they are covering up” but bottom line, the “Wolf who cried boy” has finally seen his lies obliterate the concept of credibility.
    We have no idea WTF is happening but Whatever(TF) It is IT’S A LIE!

    Kayleigh McEnany tested positive for the coronavirus this morning. They’re dropping like flies.
