Fox “News” and OANN need to look into how these treatments are being kept from the general public. Maybe a special prosecutor. You don’t think Trump’s holding out from his beloved unwashed masses of supporters, is he?

But the question is intriguing: 286,000 deaths into the pandemic, is the President using the perks of his office to grant his friends medical help?

Asking for 290K friends @joshkovensky? Of course he is using his position to dole out favors. The appropriate question is what laws has #Trump been breaking in aiding his sycophants with medical perks at the expense of those dying with covid?

Trump is openly corrupt, so I don’t think anyone doubts that the Ghoul’ probably got special treatment.

As high-end genetically-engineered medicines become more common we will find all sorts of terminal diagnosis will only count if you’re poor. Obama couldn’t stop the trend, and Trump couldn’t have cared less about such things. Biden can’t stop the tide. This is the future.

“The minute I took the cocktail yesterday, I felt 100 percent better,” Giuliani said. “It works very quickly. Wow!”

This SO pisses me off. These bottomfeeders won’t try and help ANYBODY, do not wear masks, pretend Trump has actually DONE something and then when they get sick they get the premier treatment and accept it as their ‘due’. They aren’t special. They aren’t useful. They are liars and moochers and grifters.

A COVID spokeswoman decried the aggressive treatment regimen, however, countering that “the coronavirus has every right to pursue all available biological challenges to Mr. Giuliani’s immune system, and we should be patient enough to let that process play out.”
