    what the, that video, that’s the actual twitter account of POTUS.

    I don’t understand any more

    edit:  the only way I can understand it is if he’s having some giant joke with Putin about how he can top whatever he did last.

    Melania, close your eyes and think to yourself….helping to make ‘murica great again.

    I’ve not read all of this article yet, and it’s part of a bigger piece, but it’s fascinating and frightening in equal measure, it shows how QAnon is influencing American culture, and how dTrump is repeatedly quoting QAnon on Twitter, QAnon almost seems to be forming a new religion.

    He’ll be pissed off when he remembers that the people that actually saved the day in that film were a jew and a black guy…

    Either one of his team made that clip and he thinks it paints him in a good light or a troll has just won the internet for a day as he’s swallowed it hook, line and sinker.

    Sadly his supporters will love and share it.

    ‘QAnon theorists have touted drinking bleach (known as MMS, or Miracle Mineral Solution) as a “miracle cure”.’

    That Obama speech is rubbish. Not one claim of fake news, they’re a bad person, how great he is, how he’s doing better than any other country. Just encouragement to the future generation.

    Obama was, in my view, one of the best Presidents there has been. He was held back by the Republican controlled upper house.
    The speech (above) shows what a thoroughly decent guy he is.
    It’s such a pity that so many USA residents think he did no good.
    Compare him to the current idiot in charge, and the contrast is so large, it still amazes me that people say they will still vote for Trump.

    My partners American, peeps in her family who are otherwise seemingly rational think Trump “isn’t that bad”. People just ignore what doesn’t suit them.

    But it is MSNBC, just part of the failed lame media. I think while we would consider them big business corporaist media, in the US they are seen as socialist.

    That “Trumps head on a scene from a movie” just demonstrates one thing, and that is that there is no real Trump speach he can link to which makes him seem “Presidential”. The fact he has to rely on “made up” glory really tells us everything we need to know……

    Same with my family in the US. When Covid was kicking off here in Feb I spoke to them asking what was happening there and was told ‘media fake news’. Was amazed.

    One of my team at work her girlfriend is American lives in New Jersey. The thought of hers and her family is Trump is dangerous and unhinged.

    a bit of sexy time with Melania?

    I like Family Guy’s depiction of Melania (To Peter); “Kill him and I will do the sex with you”

    MSNBC have versions of Trump that they track. They single out ‘sweaty Trump’, agitated, hyper and sniffs a lot. Hard to see what they are alluding to…

    Yeah, I saw that.

    Can anyone tell me what he seeks to gain by promoting that anti malarial?

    Or is out simply one of those things he just totally fixates on, a bit like he is with Obama?

    If true, it would appear there is no limit to what he will do to keep himself front and centre in news.

    Nope, I don’t believe he’s taking hydroxychroloquine, the White House doctor would have to sanction the use and ultimately take the blame if tinker bell developed adverse side effects. He’s trying to shill pills as his mates have obviously bought a shitload on the promise that they’d make a return on initial cost.

    Trump just’a shilling as a trump does best

    He doesn’t have the leadership skills or the inclination to do the actual hard work required to tackle the virus, so he’s gambling that it’s a miracle cure and he ends up looking like the cleverest guy in the room.
    And of course…

    WH doctor sanctioned it:

    https://thehill.com/homenews/administration/498429-white-house-doctor-potential-benefit-of-trump-taking

    He really is taking that stuff.

    The side effects are pretty wild.

    But apparently the side effects don’t include curing Covid19:
    https://www.bmj.com/content/369/bmj.m1844
    https://www.bmj.com/content/369/bmj.m1849

    Administration of hydroxychloroquine did not result in a significantly higher probability of negative conversion than standard of care alone in patients admitted to hospital with mainly persistent mild to moderate covid-19. Adverse events were higher in hydroxychloroquine recipients than in non-recipients.

    Excellent.

    Maybe he could start hawking homeopathic cures for C19 next.

    At least they’d do nothing and have no side effects.

    Hopefully, one day, he won’t.

    @dazh

    You miss the point, though. The target audience don’t get to see news. They don’t seek it out nor is it provided to them. They have their own existing prejudices played back to them as ‘news’ via social media. They are even further down this path than we are in the UK. I’ll give the cynical shits like Cummings and Bannon some credit because they saw the potential in this co-opted brainwashing and bloody hell have they used it.

    So he’s been taking hydroxychloroquine for a fortnight….just in case the increased chances of liver damage, suicide or heart complaints don’t get him, can someone suggest he tries his other pet cure out soon…..syringes and the stuff itself are readily available.

    If you read the letter Trumps doctor wrote, do you notice something? At no point does it actually say the Doctor prescibed hydroxychloroquine or that Trump is actually taking hydroxychloroquine!

    It’s a carefully weasle worded letter, designed to make stupid people who can’t read assume things they shouldn’t assume.

    It mentioned that the Doctor and Trump “discussed” the drug, but that’s it.

    Direct Quote:

    “After numerous discussions he and I had regarding the evidence for and against the use of hydroxychloroquine, we concluded the potential benefit from the treatment outweighed the relative risks”

    I like the twitter version, which was his doctor has been giving him Skittles, and told him it was hydrochloroquine

    As diplomatic as always. Wacko? This WHO and China situation makes me cringe. Yeah, we need to review what happened, but just crack on and sort the health emergency first.

    Made me smile this week, Trump started to say he was considering funding WHO again, but would only pay as much as China. China then announced it was going to pay $2 billion over 2 years.

    This seems to have triggered the angry letter to the WHO – which the Lancet wasn’t too impressed to be named in, so they corrected Trump.

    Not Trump specifically but US politics

    Just been speaking to someone about that in FL. She claims she was being told to alter the dates on COVID case data so that the graphs showed a nice downward trajectory to support their exit from lockdown.

    Georgia had a similar thing, an x-axis on a graph was mixed up so it showed a downward trend. An honest mistake they say.

    Hmmm. And they are pointing at China for lack of transparency?

    Meanwhile, a QAnon supporter wins a Senate primary in Oregon. I notice her celebratory speech on Twitter has been taken down.
