Another day another campaign rally also known as a coronavirus task force update.

As covered in the Trump Tweets for Friday’s thread, President Impeached aka President Dumbass suggested that doctors maybe look into injecting disinfectant into a coronavirus patient. The White House clarified that President Dumbass was simply telling people to consult their doctors to see if it might be an option.

President Dumbass was asked during an oval office event if he’d like to clarify his remarks from Thursday.

He said, he was asking the question sarcastically to reporters “just to see what would happen.”

He went on to defend his remarks.

It’s highly likely that President Dumbass will be asked to once again clarify remarks he said on tape, again in this evening’s campaign rally, where he’ll most likely scream fake news…and call reporters name.

Here is both his Oval Office statement with yesterday’s campaign rally statement.

CNBC News reported that the U.S. FDA has issued warnings on the use of choloroquine and hydroxychloroquine following reports of serious poisoning and death.

From the FDA notice:

The FDA is aware of reports of serious heart rhythm problems in patients with COVID-19 treated with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine, often in combination with azithromycin and other QT prolonging medicines.  We are also aware of increased use of these medicines through outpatient prescriptions.  Therefore, we would like to remind health care professionals and patients of the known risks associated with both hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine. We will continue to investigate risks associated with the use of hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine for COVID-19 and communicate publicly when we have more information.

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine have not been shown to be safe and effective for treating or preventing COVID-19. 

Hydroxychloroquine and chloroquine can cause abnormal heart rhythms such as QT interval prolongation and a dangerously rapid heart rate called ventricular tachycardia.  These risks may increase when these medicines are combined with other medicines known to prolong the QT interval, including the antibiotic azithromycin, which is also being used in some COVID-19 patients without FDA approval for this condition.  Patients who also have other health issues such as heart and kidney disease are likely to be at increased risk of these heart problems when receiving these medicines. 

FDA. 04/24/2020.

It’s highly likely that Secretary Steven Mnuchin will be present for Friday’s campaign rally, to praise President Dumbass and Congressional leaders for refilling the Paycheck Protection Program.

For What It’s Worth.

The Washington Post reports that according to a recording obtained by the paper, President Dumbasses Senior Policy Adviser Stephen Miller told supporters in a private call, that the immigration pause recently ordered by President Dumbass will result in the kind of broader long-term changes to American society.

Miller is quoted as saying; the most important thing is to turn off the faucet of new immigrant labor. As a numerical proposition, when you suspend the entry of a new immigrant from abroad, you’re also reducing immigration further because the chains of follow-on migration that are disrupted. So the benefit to American workers compounds with time.

Politico reported that even while attacking Hunter Biden, former Vice President Joe Biden’s son, for being paid by China during his fathers term as Vice President, documents show a building that President Dumbass has a 30 percent stake in, owes the state-owned Bank of China millions of dollars that would be payable during his second-term.

Politico notes that the building located at 1290 Avenue of Americas ownership by President Dumbass did receive some attention during his 2016 campaign.

At this point. I’m going to stop guessing what may or may not be asked in Friday’s campaign rally, it really is at this point anyone’s guess.

As always the presser will likely be pushed back to 5:30 p.m. D.C. time, or 5:45 in order to start sometime around 6 p.m. D.C. time.

In grim news Friday, April 24th, 2020, the death toll from the coronavirus in the U.S. has passed 50,000. May God rest their souls.
