This is something you'd never see from Trump

You can't fake that.

Joe's been doing it for decades.

Looks like Trump is still getting an IV

See the bandage on his hand taken at his recent rally:

Here's a link to a Trump pic showing his hands when he arrived home from the hospital with no bandages on his hands

So the bandage - typically for an IV based upon the care given to my parents - is more recent - came after Walter Reed visit.

My observant sister sent me these.

This was chilling for me to watch and absorb ...

Ari Melber asks David Frum to weigh in on Georgia's return to work. Video should be at the spot where Frum starts his response:

Frum's response at 34:44 is what caught my attention.

Frum makes reference to this article

Coronavirus Advice From Abroad: 7 Lessons Americas Governors Should Not Ignore as They Reopen Their Economies
https://www.propublica.org/article/coronavirus-advice-from-abroad-7-lessons-americas-governors-should-not-ignore-as-they-reopen-their-economies

Frum also discusses it here:

I think there's a good chance Frum is correct.

Trump will panic that he cannot get reelected unless the economy is back. He knows that will take time. They floated a trial balloon earlier and got the feedback on the objections they'll have to overcome. Since they're not doing any of the seven things they would need to do to bring the economy back, Trump will see it as he has no choice. There will be a political calculation to let many die to bring the economy back.

How else can it be? Trump isn't doing any of the things he would need to to bring the economy back like many advised Propublica. Not bringing back the economy is not an option for Trump politically. So the worst may well be yet to come.

"Take the punch. Mostly minorities and the poor ..."

"Mortality rate for opening up ...."

What a horror.

Talk me down.

I cannot believe what I just typed but I'm struggling to refute it.

And this buffoon is the one going to make this decision?

I didn't see it posted ... hope I didn't miss it.

Interview with Leading COVID-19 Expert From South Korea



I've been reading a lot of media and checking into the medical side of this.

I thought this was as good an interview on the virus as any I'd seen for the general public.

He covers a lot of the questions.

I searched to see if it had been posted and didn't see that it had.

He provides various scenarios on where this might go.

But he spends some time talking about how one catches this virus. He feels it can get into the air beyond sneezing or coughing and that we should be wearing masks and glasses to avoid getting infected through our eyes.

Those statements check out with anecdotes about how others have spread the infection that I've seen and other medical studies on how viruses get into the air.

Some may have heard too much on this virus and that I completely understand.
For many, this will be time well spent where you might learn something that helps you avoid getting sick or it might be something you send to someone sitting on the fence about taking it seriously.

Stay safe.
