It’s mini-rally time, sometimes referred to as press updates regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

They aren’t updates, considering we hardly hear any new information regarding the disease.

The questions will hover around the same thing ventilators, PPE’s, testing, and the anti-malarial drug hydroxychloroquine.

New things he might be asked about:

Attacking former Vice President Joe Biden via tweet.

His acting Secretary of the Navy Thomas Modly’s leaked address to the sailors of the USS Theodore Roosevelt, where he calls former CO Brett Crozier, “too naive or too stupid,” to not realize a letter sent to 20 plus people begging for aid for his sailors, would be leaked to the media. Modly also threatens the sailors on board to not leak anything to the press. He goes on in the 15 minute address to say that Crozier betrayed his crew, blamed China for the failing of the Impeached President’s administration, and said that he would never throw them under the bus in D.C..

Trade adviser Peter Navarro’s appearance on CNN, in which he tried to defend the Impeached President’s not allowing Dr. Fauci to address a question from Sunday’s last minute mini-rally, regarding the anti-malaria drug, President Impeached is obsessed with.

In the same interview Navarro, again, the Trade adviser for President Impeached, seemed to confirm an Axios scoop that claimed there was “an epic Situation Room showdown. Trump’s coronavirus task force gathered in the White House Situation Room on Saturday at about 1:30pm, according to four sources familiar with the conversation. Vice President Mike Pence sat at the head of the table.”

From the article:

“And the first words out of his mouth are that the studies that he’s seen, I believe they’re mostly overseas, show ‘clear therapeutic efficacy,'” said a source familiar with the conversation. “Those are the exact words out of his mouth.”

Navarro’s comments set off a heated exchange about how the Trump administration and the president ought to talk about the malaria drug, which Fauci and other public health officials stress is unproven to combat COVID-19.

Fauci pushed back against Navarro, saying that there was only anecdotal evidence that hydroxychloroquine works against the coronavirus.

Axios. 04/05/2020.

In grim, but sadly not altogether shocking news, as of 11:00 a.m. CA time, the U.S. has now surpassed 10,000 deaths do to the coronavirus according to John Hopkins data.
