    This reminded me of that Treehouse of Horror Simpsons episode where Moe chases one of the green aliens with a board with a nail in it. What’s wrong with people.

    https://news.sky.com/story/man-attac...kdown-11969823

    A man attacked three police officers and a police dog after being asked if his journey was essential during the coronavirus lockdown - in what has been called a "truly horrifying" incident.
    Nelson Nelson, 29, struck the canine several times with a plank of wood with nails in it during the "violent rampage" on Saturday.

    I know, right? Plus the Nelson Muntz connection.

    Meanwhile, this video scared the living shit out of me:

    I may just be getting old and soft, but I think I may come down on the side of suggesting humanity try its best to keep it classy at the moment?
    I hear you & of course you're right. But I'm tired of our side maintaining our humanity & keeping it classy. How's that been working out for us?

    Why whatever do you mean? It's been working just fine. Everything is fine.

    Why? Because he has a financial stake in hydroxychloroquine and makes comments such as “what have you got to lose”? Well, your heart could stop by taking it, for one. You have your life to lose.

    Did you even read that article, or just the headline? It's literally pointing out that it's almost certainly not the reason he's promoting the drug, as it would be a woefully inefficient way to make any money whatsoever.

    Look, I hate the orange man as much as the next guy. But the financial stake article is about him having somewhere between $100-1,500 in it as part of a larger fund (talks about other possible exposure is speculation). I've got a bigger fucking stake than that in several companies, and I am by no measurable statistic "wealthy".

    All this said, I still think it's fucking stupid that he keeps pushing it publicly, because it's doing notable harm to people who actually need the drug right now. If he has good reason to suspect it might be useful, have research and testing fast-tracked, but do it quietly and then release information as it becomes relevant.

    When I took a crap this morning the first article I read was about his stake in it. Fast forward a few hours later after cooking dinner and I was looking for the same article, but came across this one instead. Yes, I did read that the financial aspect of it was trivial, but he’s still an asshole for encouraging the intake of something that could potentially kill you so off-the-cuff like that.

    Coronavirus - COVID-19

    Maybe he doesn’t have a personal financial stake in the drug but I’m willing to bet someone who has access to him does. Why else would he promote it so much? He benefits because some rich person or people he knows will benefit.

    As the article laid out: desperation. He's drowning, and he needs SOMETHING to sell to people, because that's all he knows how to do: bluster and blow and sell shit. Not ruling out the possibility that some buddy may have a higher stake in it, but it's completely on brand for him to just desperately pitch out something useless for no other reason than to cover his ass and try to stay afloat. Right now, I'd be willing to bet he's way more concerned about re-election (i.e. pitching whatever good news he possibly can) than helping out literally anybody who isn't himself by manipulating markets. So my theory is that this whole thing is entirely self-serving and not motivated at all by others. It's full blown CYA.

    When it comes to politics I usually don’t throw an ounce of an opinion in, but this outbreak has hit not only a nerve with me, but really piqued my interest (as devastating as it is) on a level of genuine curiosity. I think it comes down to (being 31 now and looking back at my college years, double-majoring in English & Philosophy and rolling my eyes) the fact that I really would have loved to have studied, in earnest, biology or microbiology. As bad as it all is I can’t help but feel slightly fascinated by it.

    What’s that George Carlin quote from years ago? “If you read the daily paper - even poorly - you know something is fucked up”. That’s how I feel every time I see Trump talking for more than a minute. My mind immediately asks me: “how is this person not in a mental institution, let alone in a position of virtual ultimate power?”

    No real point to this post, but just throwing a bit of my background character out there. Hope everyone is staying safe.

    True. It is working with his base. I saw a Facebook “friend” posting about how the “dems” don’t want anyone to get the drug because they hate trump and people or something.

    There's definitely something fucked up about it. I think one part of it is purely disinformation. "It's not that bad, Dems are liars, the sky isn't falling, I know what I'm doing, take this drug, it's a miracle!." Muddy the waters.

    On the other hand, money to his family / campaign isn't always a straight line.

    I don't know which Closer Look it is but I read someone else who had watched it quote this: "Seth Meyers has a good point. The drug has more than six syllables and Trump nails it every time so he has a personal interest in making sure it's correct when he says it."

    I saw that, too. I know it’s just a joke, but goddamn if it didn’t really feel like it was true. What was that Colbert Report word? Truthiness?

    Why why why? I don’t understand why they’d do this. It’s weird and fucked up.

    I keep wanting to believe shit like this isn’t true. But it’s so on-brand.

    EDIT: Actually, he’s been pretty upfront about this sort of thing lately what with his “If the governors don’t like you, don’t call them to help their people” shtick. That’s about as brazen as it gets.

    Yeah, I once took a Klonopin which helped with my anxiety, so now I view it as a universal treatment for everything.

    Yes, some do...after years of trials and verification and without a conman filling the airwaves with disinformation. The last part is uncalled for and you should be fucking ashamed of it.
