An opinion is not fact. I will take my information from Dr. Fauci and his advice to the president.
Does it occur to anyone else that maybe the reason for potus wants the working and middle class back out there is due to his million and billionaire buddies depend on them to continue to gain their riches? I'm just saying. I am all for everyone working but too many people still think this pandemic only affects the old and person's with health conditions. I would not want to see millions die so the rich get richer. it's not their health that they are risking.
The FDA has approved hydroxychloroquine for "off label" use which means individual physicians can and HAVE prescribed it for individuals with Covid-19. This has occurred both in Florida and New York. This has also occurred in France.
There is a difference between stating that we are "hopeful" or "encouraged" and stating that the President is "touting it as a cure".
The President has the tough job of trying to manage expectations of a diverse group of citizens. We have already proven to ourselves that we are pretty poor at this "social distancing thing". And the shutdown of our economy is equally harmful as a vast majority of Americans don't have a week of savings let alone 3 months which would better allow them to deal with a shutdown such as this.
Blame corporations, easy credit, fiscal irresponsibility or whatever other causes you like. The truth is that because our personal finances are unstable, any disruption to them causes us to start to worry and panic.
So the president can't simply tell everyone to stay home for 90 days. That would destroy this economy. He also can't just open up the country for business and let the virus go unchecked.
So he says things, to try an ally fears. Things like "promising results on a new treatment". "Open for business by Easter". We don't know if ANY of these things will pan out. But they do provide hope.
Further research will determine if the drug or another drug combo is effective. We'll better know in mid April where we stand.
But if BI and other democrats would rather tout "doom and gloom" like many of them are doing now over hope, I'll take hope any day of the week.
Like I said, it's a fine line. We need to take this disease very seriously, but we also have to have the belief that when this is over we have jobs to come back to.
Today, the FDA, gave Doctors permission to try to save your life with intravenous plasma from someone who recovered from COVID-19. This did save lives during the 1918 Spanish Flu Pandemic. So, stay home, until the donors get qualified, screened and plasma is available. Governor Cuomo has already started his own trial.
The best advice anyone can get at a time like this is to believe the exact opposite of what trump says
The “billionaire” who hides his tax returns.
The “genius” who hides his college grades.
The “businessman” who bankrupted 3 casinos and lost over $1B in 10 years.
The “playboy” who pays for sex.
The “Christian” who doesn’t go to church or read the bible.
The “philanthropist” who defrauds charity; like the Veterans
The “patriot” who dodged the draft”
The “innocent man” who refuses to testify
The “married family man” who is divorced twice and had affairs behind the backs of each of his 3 wives including the current one
The “hard working and minimal golfer” who has golfed more then most modern day Presidents in his first term…..and we have payed Trump over $115 million to golf at his own resort so he can pocket our money

It’s really simple. Just do what millions of us do and don’t pay attention to anything trump says and get your information from the doctors and scientists that actually have a clue
Dear "Red" This will be hard for you, it has numbers and facts, but try. The project death rate, it's math and data not opinions, could reach 2.2 million. That is more dead Americans that were killed in every war America has ever fought. The flu in a bad year kills around 18,000. Automobile accidents 35,000. Get the picture? Do yourself a favor, watch the YouTube video of the Spanish Flu of 1918. FYI The "Spanish Flu" didn't start in Spain. It started on a chicken farm in Kansas. Have a nice day.
Nothing says pro life more than sacrificing grandma for the stock market.
it already has, talk to the widow in AZ who just lost her husband to a trump treatment
Trump supporters and voters:
Today your foolishness that took place in November of 2016 is in plain sight. Trump was a disruptive child and deemed, “uncontrollable” by his family. This type of behavior, known as a Conduct Disorder is a Mentally Disorder. This is important because the likelihood of these children evolving into Sociopaths his very high. This person you elected President is a Sociopath. Trump has never been a success at any venture. The record shows he in inherited over 400 million dollars and lost it all because of his impulsive behavior. He has no management skills, cannot plan for the future, is hypersexual, and lacks any impulse control. His business acumen is a well-crafted lie. His creditworthiness is nonexistent. No American bank would loan him a dime, so he took money from Russian mobsters. He is a bully, evidenced by his over 4,000 lawsuits. He defaults on his debts. He engages in promiscuous sexual behavior with many women while married. He is a verified liar as evidenced by his huge number of “tweets” and videos. He is functionally illiterate. None of this was a secret. It was all known before the election. And yet you allowed yourself to be conned. In fairness, Trump, as are most Sociopaths, is a masterful con-artist. But nevertheless you shouted “lock her up” and waved your MAGA hats (made in China) and put this very sick and flawed man in the most powerful position on earth. Now, because of your foolishness, Americans will die and indeed so will some of you. Please go and look in a mirror and admit that you were a fool. Then do everything in your power to support the people that will step up to manage this crisis. This is a real emergency. It was seen way in advance and plans were made years ago. Trump and Trump alone dismantled the plans and fired the experts; he sold off the supplies and placed us at risk. It is your fault for supporting him and our current unprepared situation
No, Trump is NOT dangerously misinforming the country. He is emphasizing the positives unlike the media which is entirely focused on anything and everything negative they can find. They only people he is confusing are the small minority that rely entirely on the media for what they think. The Coronavirus task force has been putting out excellent information and FACTS. Trump, as the President puts forth optimism by saying we need to open the economy again soon, by pointing out there MAY be a drug which works well with this virus, by focusing on the partnership with private industry that is overcoming a shortage NO ONE was prepared for at State or Federal levels. That's his JOB!
The FACT that the media works overtime to misrepresent what he says could have deadly consequences.
