#1 The press is lying. They are doing everything they can to reinforce panic and fear, in order to hurt "Orange Man Bad". including smearing a possible treatment that could reduce it to nothing more than a few days with the flu, hydroquinolone.

#2 Hydroxychloroquine

#3 Just not the press, it's the bureaucracy at work.

How Honest is the COVID Fatality Count?

Dr. Scott Jensen is both a physician and a Minnesota state senator. Yesterday he was interviewed by a local television station and dropped a bombshell: he, and presumably all other Minnesota doctors, got a seven-page letter from the Minnesota Department of Health that gave guidance on how to classify COVID-19 deaths. The letter said that if a patient died of, e.g., pneumonia, and was believed to have been exposed to COVID-19, the death certificate should say that COVID-19 was the cause of death even though the patient was never tested, or never tested positive, for that disease.


It's all GIGO.

#4 Anything short of 2.2 million deaths will make Trump look good. Trump is also the best suited president to get the economy up and running again.

Many lefties know this which is why some are claiming we need 18 month lock down.

#5 Biden has been nominated because they know Trump will be re elected. They don't want loser tarnish on any of the others they will run again later.

#7 I've wondered that, too, that the Dems are just going through the motions conceding defeat (which, I think, the GOP had done up against Obama). What others have wondered is what will come AFTER Pres. Trump.

#8 After Trump, historically speaking, we switch parties and the Dems take over again. Of course Reagan was so awesome the GOP got three terms and despite the virus Trump is along the same trajectory.

The smarter folks in their party know this and are willing to give Trump powers they want, knowing he wouldn't use such powers, such as trying to make voting a Federal controlled thing..

#9 Mondale-Ferraro redux.

Economy will start to rebound before end of Q2, markets even sooner, and OrangeMan will be re-elected with a healthy margin of victory. Smarter Dems see this.
