Can no-one march this imbecile off to the funny farm? He is a danger to the country. Someone described him the other day as the Herbert Hoover of our time, but it is much, much worse than that. Thousands, hundreds of thousands, possibly millions of people could die because of this incompetent idiot. 

 

On reflection, I have edited the last part of this. We live in crazy times. I don't need to end up in a rendition hole.

The Washington Post - Trump’s clubs and hotels, including Mar-a-Lago, suffer from coronavirus fallout

 

March 21, 2020

 


President Trump’s company - significantly reliant on tourism, conventions and restaurant income - has been sharply impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, with at least four properties closing and three hotels laying off staff, according to people familiar with the company.

 

In Florida, Gov. Ron DeSantis (R) ordered all restaurants and bars in the state to close Friday and imposed special restrictions in a few places including Palm Beach County - home of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago Club.  ...

 

Trump’s hotel in Las Vegas was shuttered in response to a statewide order from Nevada’s governor. ...

 

In New York, Trump’s hotel on Central Park ... 51 of the hotel’s 300-plus employees had been laid off ...

 

At the Trump International Hotel in Washington ... 160 workers were let go, as the hotel’s occupancy rate plunged to about 5 percent ...

 

Trump’s D.C. hotel remains open, despite the bar and restaurant being closed by a directive from the D.C. government and almost no guests staying there. ...

 



 

I think that "schadenfreude" is the right word - but I pity Trump's workers, who he has screwed as usual.

Trump doesn't lose anything. He runs mini legal ponzi schemes where he gets investors to pay for his projects, he comes up with the ideas.

 

So I don't think actually loses any real money.

Trump 2016:

It’s called OPM. I do that all the time in business. It’s called other people’s money.

There’s nothing like doing things with other people’s money.

Because it takes, the risk, you get a good chunk of it and it takes the risk.

We’re going to do this, in this case, from a humanitarian standpoint.

OPM: other people’s money.”

Let us hope it is the beginning of a trend.

The New York Times - Trump’s Embrace of Unproven Drugs to Treat Coronavirus Defies Science

 

Doctors and patients also worry that the president’s rosy outlook for the treatments will exacerbate shortages of old malaria drugs relied on by patients with lupus and other debilitating conditions.

 

March 20, 2020

 


At a long-winded White House briefing on Friday, President Trump enthusiastically and repeatedly promoted the promise of two long-used malaria drugs that are still unproven against the coronavirus, but being tested in clinical trials.

 

“I’m a smart guy,” he said, while acknowledging he couldn’t predict the drugs would work. “I feel good about it. And we’re going to see. You’re going to see soon enough.” 

 

But the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, Dr. Anthony S. Fauci, pushed back from the same stage, explaining that there was only anecdotal evidence that the drugs, chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine, may be effective. ...

 

“Rheumatologists are furious about the hype going on over this drug,” said Dr. Michael Lockshin, of the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.

 

“There is a run on it and we’re getting calls every few minutes, literally, from patients who are trying to stay on the drug and finding it in short supply.” ...

 



 

Dr Trump strikes again  😕

The New York Times - Used to Meeting Challenges With Bluster and Force, Trump Confronts a Crisis Unlike Any Before

 

March 21, 2020

 


Mr. Trump is no stranger to crisis.

 

He has spent a lifetime grappling with bankruptcy, fending off creditors, evading tax collectors, defending lawsuits, deflecting regulators, spinning reporters and dueling with estranged wives, usually coming out ahead, at least as he defines it. 

 

But these were crises of his own creation involving human adversaries he knew how to confront. 

 

Nothing in his background in business, entertainment or multiple marriages prepared him for the coronavirus pandemic now threatening America’s health and wealth.

 

Mr. Trump’s performance on the national stage in recent weeks has put on display the traits that Democrats and some Republicans consider so jarring - the profound need for personal praise, the propensity to blame others, the lack of human empathy, the penchant for rewriting history, the disregard for expertise, the distortion of facts, the impatience with scrutiny or criticism. 

 

For years, skeptics expressed concern about how he would handle a genuine crisis threatening the nation, and now they know. ...
