    That's been Fox's position ever since Trump started promoting Hydroxychloroquine. It's the one issue where they have consistently dissented. It is clearly policy handed down from the highest level, not a presenter going rogue.

    OTOH of course, it exposes the station's malfeasance in promoting the rest of Trump's lies that are killing their viewers.

      Though Ingraham has been pushing it consistently since the beginning (and was almost certainly where Trump got the idea originally).

      They very much want to have it both ways and are trying to use the "news vs opinion distinction" as a shield.

        If that's true, we can only hope it kills him.

          It's not true, is it?

            He lies reflexively about everything, so possibly not. OTOH he's also clearly unhinged so perhaps so.

              It is an unproven/discredited treatment for the disease, it wasn't even touted as a preventative measure. But yes, should one of his other valets end up giving him the virus, it could cause his heart to give out, which would be for the best.

                Do we have any evidence that he has a heart?

                      I'm seeing an attempt to get morbidly obese/morbid obesity to trend on Twitter. Glad to see an attempt to rise above, it's an excellent strategy.

                      Look, fat;

                      '“The age-adjusted prevalence of obesity in 2013-2014 was 35 percent among men and 40.4 percent among women,” they wrote in their report, published in the Journal of the American Medical Association. More than 5 percent of men and nearly 10 percent of women were morbidly obese, with a BMI of 40 or more.'

                        Agreed; I think Pelosi has fucked up on this one, firstly by appearing to stigmatize obesity and then by adding morbidity, which is probably not Trump's category (his BMI is likely to be under 40 given his height). You can have heart attacks from unhealthy diet without being morbidly obese.

                        OTOH this is the kind of exaggeration/lie that Trump throws out hourly so hardly a biggie. And it's possible that, as with Trump's lies, this one may have its benefits in putting a focus on Trump's being a bad role model for health. I just think she has miscalculated, literally: why do we need to add obesity to the mix when Trump's own words are sufficiently self-damaging?

                          There are so very many things you could attack the fucker over, but this is the peak of the Democrats manner of attack, and way too many people are appeased with these stunts, caught up in thinking that this is effective. A sassy clap, ripped up paper and a dig at his weight, almost like they have nothing else, yet they do.
                          craven behaviour.

                            I can't look past the two disgusting corporate entities who have thrust these shitheads upon the world.
                            Dismantle the DNC & GOP, they aren't fit for purpose.

                              And in Trump's latest bid to utterly fuck up the planet, rent demands for wind and solar power located on Federal land suddenly materialises, running in some cases to millions of dollars due immediately.

                              ​​​He is by far and away the worst President ever, and one of the most awful human beings to have existed simply in his pettiness, spite, lack of empathy, egoism etc etc. Just fucking scum.

                                      On the weekend the US death toll is likely to break 100,000

                                        So the Democrats are duping the population of the planet? Seems like great politics to me.

                                            As the death toll in the novel coronavirus pandemic neared 100,000 Americans this Memorial Day weekend, President Trump derided and insulted perceived enemies and promoted a baseless conspiracy theory, in between rounds of golf.

                                            In a flurry of tweets and retweets Saturday and Sunday, Trump mocked former Georgia gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams’s weight, ridiculed the looks of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and called former Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton a “skank.”

                                            He revived long-debunked speculation that a television host with whom Trump has feuded may have killed a woman and asserted without evidence that mail-in voting routinely produces ballot-stuffing.

                                                  Fuck all. He clearly considers Trump to be the best thing to ever happen to Twitter.

                                                  Comment


                                                    The complainant is only asking for the Tweets to be deleted, not for Trump to be banned. But obviously Twitter want the nutjob audience to keep logging on.

                                                    Trump wants to kill his own delegates by filling the Convention in North Carolina to capacity. The Governor must be tempted to let him, except that it would mean the state's whole lockdown strategy is then fucked.

                                                    I'm also in favour of him staying on Twitter if it causes him to open himself up to future prosecutions.
