What can we expect in today’s campaign rally?
First, he’ll come out and deliver, poorly, a written statement that lists all these things he says the federal government has done to aid in the fight against the coronavirus, he’ll gush.
After that he’ll be asked the standard round of testing, PPE’s, and ventilator questions, to which he’ll say he banned China early.
For the second part of the campaign rally he is most likely going to be asked about the use of hydroxychloroquine and has he had a chance to hear that according to French media, specifically Nice Martin, that France has suspended their trials using the anti-malaria drug in combination with azithromycin, because it caused cardiac issues.
Newsweek reported on Monday that several Swedish hospitals have also stopped using choloroquine in COVID-19 patients due to serious side-effects relating to vision.
As they point out there is no specific drug to treat the coronavirus “but many have pointed to the anti-malarial drugs chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine as contenders.”
He will also be asked about the 2020 Presidential race and the fact that Bernie Sanders the Democratic Senator from Vermont suspended his campaign early Wednesday, leaving the presumptive nominee as former Vice President Joe Biden.
I can guess someone will attempt to ask him about his tweet talking about how we need to quickly forget the troubles the virus caused, unless you’ve lost a family member or friend to the virus, but otherwise, we are to move on as if nothing has changed.
Once we OPEN UP OUR GREAT COUNTRY, and it will be sooner rather than later, the horror of the Invisible Enemy, except for those that sadly lost a family member or friend, must be quickly forgotten. Our Economy will BOOM, perhaps like never before!!!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 8, 2020
Chances are he’ll call some reporter fake news, or terrible, or some new negative term, while he explains that he likes to be positive and he’s our countries head Cheer Leader.
