    A new report in the medical journal The Lancet provides the results of a large-scale study involving 96,000 patients from around the world. And the results of this study puts a definitive nail into the coffin of hydroxychloroquine as a COVID-19 treatment. Across six continents, the results were the same: Patients given hydroxychloroquine had a significantly greater risk of dying than those who were not treated with Trump’s favorite drug.

    As The Washington Post notes, this study goes well beyond just saying that hydroxychloroquine is ineffective in curing COVID-19. It shows that it does active harm. Donald Trump has, more than once, asked “what do you have to lose?” while encouraging Americans to take the unproven drug. The answer to that has been clear from the beginning, and it’s even more emphatic now: Your life.

    trump, blatantly trying to appeal to his base, declares churches as "essential" so that they can open up right away. And threatens governors that don't go along... my hope that my church will resist the urge to open the doors to church services until its safe...

    Saw two funny quotes:

    "Churches are like masks for Trump: they are essential for other people..." Susan Glaser
    "President Who Never Goes To Church Has Hot Take On Going To Church..." Kevin Kruse

    People who support Donald Trump who believe they also support "limited" government are fascinating.

    Kinda like people who think The Rise of Skywalker is better than The Last Jedi. Interesting, bizarre creatures. Worth studying but best to do so from a distance.

    Its truly laughable because despite his junior high bully statement, he has no control over businesses opening... that's all in the hands of governors and local officials. But the article touches on the real reason for trump's announcement... falling polling numbers. Its all about getting re-elected...

    Behind Trump’s demand to reopen churches: Slipping poll numbers and alarm inside his campaign
    Trump was counting on widening support from white religious voters this fall. The pandemic is sending his numbers the other way.

    I'm not sure how you can have other things opening, but be like, naaaah, churches are closed.

    If you go to church right now, I think you're out of your mind. If you run a church and you open, I think you're being irresponsible.

    But if everything else but schools seem to be opening back up... how can you single out places of worship.

    These are the same people who will talk your ear off about celebrities voicing their political opinions and how they don't want to hear it. Shut up and dribble, while I go vote for the celebrity billionaire who I relate to in absolutely no way.

    Church meetings are vectors for super spreaders.

    It's not a political thing. I'm all for open worship.

    Do it outside with a megaphone or something.

    Religious service is essential to many. Mass gathering at an enclosed location is not. We have zoom.

    lol, i know this is just the garbage bleatings of an unhinged mind, but how does he propose to do this? Is he citing the "President Can Reopen the Churches Act of 2020" - or is he going to deploy the troops to occupy state police headquarters and forcibly reopen churches

    It actually is a flaw in our system that journalists cover his eruptions like they're news for the sake of what he proposes. It's just an old man yelling at the tv with very limited power, both legally and in terms of his own attention span, to actually deliver on 99% of his rants.

    I'm not saying that Trump is not insanely dangerous, mind you, he's a ****ing national tragedy and disgrace. But mostly due to his inaction or his simulacram of actoins than his policies. Like his enthusiasm for graft encourages other grifter pieces of **** like MIke Pompeo to do the same, but he's not a criminal mastermind. It's honestly a miracle this dipshit even made to age 40 without getting imprisoned

    Trump thinks he is God. Therefore, churches need to open. People need to worship Him. MAGA

    Church folk ain't got time for zoom. It's important for some people to have that face to face contact
