Trump says on the video that he was wearing the mask before but took it off for the press moment.


The guy in the background: does he use his hand as a mask or is it a facepalm?
Looks ike he does not want to be recognised.

This is why Trump loves photos like this one in Michigan Ford factory;"The warrior President surrounded by the effete masked elite".

The only other person not wearing a mask is the new press secretary. So she can talk I guess.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Anyone who takes medical advice from a politician probably deserves the consequences. Even more so when it comes from a business man/ political troll.
But we tolerate this troll because he is one of the few who is anti NWO.

I think he's been claiming to take it because it's against the WHO's warning, he's showing them the finger big time. Now that his letter with the phony reproaches has been sent and become public there's no longer a reason, so he pretends to stop taking it.

I'm pretty sure he never took the drug. Because (temporary) hair loss is a possible side effect.
Interesting, now 100 countries are pushing for a WHO investigation....so it is never a big guy. It's always about cooperation.

Or maybe Trump has started a Metoo moment, good for him then.....

They should be investigating Trump peddling dangerous drugs!
Quote:
Hospitalized COVID-19 patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine, an anti-malaria touted by President Trump, had a much higher risk of death than those who were not, according to a new study of 96,000 patients.

The study, published Friday in the medical journal The Lancet, found that patients who were treated with hydroxychloroquine or chloroquine also faced a much higher risk of abnormal heartbeats, called arrhythmias, which could result in cardiac arrest.

Meanwhile top tweets for a Friday after Fox News poll showed Trump badly trailing Biden

Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump

Why doesn’t @FoxNews put up the CNBC POLL or the (believe it or not!) @CNN Poll?
Hope Roger A is looking down and watching what has happened to this once beautiful creation!

I have a college friend living in Geneva for the past 12 years. She told me a very good friend of hers left the WHO 18 months ago and claimed it was rife with bureaucracy and corruption. Her friend had had enough! It seems that far too many institutions suffer the same affliction- sadly

Wigdor, the lawyer who represented Tara Reade, the woman who has accused Joe Biden of sexually assaulting her in 1993, announced Friday that Reade is no longer his firm's client.

You do realise that the US haven't signed the draft, do you.

Of course that doesn't mean the US won't join later, but for the time being he'll let the 30 days count down. Sometimes a threat, especially one that hasn't been made clear what it entails, is way more powerful than acting on it. Assuming you carry a big stick, of course.

It goes without saying. Too little accountability and transparency.

I mean, Genossenschaft Migros has more transparency than these organisations, and Migros is a business....

Not true.The transparency is completely there for anyone that bothers to look. Not remotely hidden.

Of course if people fail to look or fail to act on what they find that is another matter.

Re: New: Trump Jokes

Another perfect example of what an idiot Trump is. Even the Henry Ford organization's website has a page about Ford's anti-semitism:
https://www.thehenryford.org/collect...-complex-story

It says this: "The most controversial and least admirable aspect of Ford’s career was his descent into anti-Semitism. Convinced that “bankers” and “the Jews” were responsible for a whole range of things he didn’t like, from the world war to short skirts to jazz music, Ford used his newspaper, the Dearborn Independent, to carry on an active anti-Semitic campaign. Between 1920 and 1922 a series of articles denounced all things Jewish."

Maybe it makes perfect sense that Trump thinks he was a good man, though, because Trump is doing something rather similar in the way he demonizes immigrants and tries to blame them for America's problems.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Another one of those "you could not make this stuff up" days!
In a desperate attempt to appeal to his base Trump had a Baron Munchausen moment and ordered State Governors to open their churches although he has no power or authority to enforce that order.

Unfortunately for Trump a group of bishops now issued a joint declaration that they do not want to open their churches, too soon and unsafe.

Trump will try anything to help his reelection regardless of the cost in US citizen's lives.

$30mln is literally peanuts, relatively speaking.

Management holds exercisable options for ~45mln shares with a weighted exercise price of ~$16.

Based on $69 market price (Friday's close) the options are worth $2'385'000'000.

Re: Will Trump be a Good President?

Another Trump tweetstorm yesterday with around 60 tweets, he must be very worried... These include spreading long debunked conspiracy theories and again promoting his anti-malarial killer drug for COVID-19.
Demonstrating his famed lack of loyalty towards ex-employees he again attacked ex-Attorney General Jeff Sessions who was the first Senator to support his Presidential bid.
Quote:
Donald J. Trump@realDonaldTrump
Jeff, you had your chance & you blew it. Recused yourself ON DAY ONE (you never told me of a problem), and ran for the hills. You had no courage, & ruined many lives. The dirty cops, & others, got caught by better & stronger people than you. Hopefully this slime will pay a big...
Quote Tweet

Quote:
Jeff Sessions@jeffsessions

.@realDonaldTrump: Mr. President, Alabama can and does trust me, as do conservatives across the country. Perhaps you’ve forgotten. They trusted me when I stepped out and put that trust on the line for you.
12:53 AM · May 24, 2020
What Grandpaw means by "ruined many lives" is not known, who? when? where?

Meanwhile, DOJ's attempt to cancel their criminal lying case against former national security adviser Michael Flynn is getting a lot of push back from the US District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan who has hired both an ex-judge and a DC law firm to support him.

Pass the popcorn!

US President sinks to a new low

Quote:
Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-Ill.) called on President Trump to stop promoting "the completely unfounded conspiracy" theory regarding the death of an intern for MSNBC "Morning Joe" anchor and former Florida lawmaker Joe Scarborough.

“Just stop,” Kinzinger responded said. “Stop spreading it, stop creating paranoia. It will destroy us.”

It is your decision to continuously hang in the cafeteria. Maybe it isn't the best for you.
