In case you were missing the antics of Prznint Stupid’s second stupidest lawyer Wrong Again Rudy, well let’s catch-up!
This @jdawsey1 story about Rudy Giuliani attempting to advise President Trump during the pandemic reminds me that on March 17, as the number of positive cases in the US soared past 5,000, Giuliani asked me what the phrase “social distancing” meant: https://t.co/kDX4YhdIxF pic.twitter.com/BJZQQa5JBy

OK, so while you and I were sheltering-in-place, Wrong-Again Rudy didn’t know what Social Distancing is. So why is this such a big deal, you ask? Because, as The WaPo tells us, Rudy is yet another voice in Lord Damp Nut’s empty melon, filling it with enthusiastic news of hydroxychloroquine:
In one-on-one phone calls with Trump, Giuliani said, he has been touting the use of an anti-malarial drug combination that has shown some early promise in treating covid-19, the disease the novel coronavirus causes, but whose effectiveness has not yet been proved. He said he now spends his days on the phone with doctors, coronavirus patients and hospital executives promoting the treatment, which Trump has also publicly lauded. “I discussed it with the president after he talked about it,” Giuliani said in an interview. “I told him what I had on the drugs.” Giuliani’s advice to Trump echoes comments the former New York mayor has made on his popular Twitter feed and a podcast that he records in a radio studio installed at his New York City apartment, where he has repeatedly pushed the drug combination, as well as a stem cell therapy that involves the extraction of what Giuliani termed “placenta ‘killer cells.’”
So, you see, he’s as good a doctor as he is a lawyer. And Lord Damp Nut is listening to him. Also, Trump has been lobbied to promote hydroxychloroquine by a pharmaceutical industry-funded group founded by one of his fav. donors.
We’re totally eff’ed in the dark.
