Gotham City Digest: World Health Day edition

(The bathroom attendants in the White House are more essential.)

     I cannot possibly stress this enough times, people- When you vote in right wing governments like the one in Sweden, this shit WILL happen. Conservatives are, at best, completely useless in an emergency. At worst, they are destructive and needlessly get people killed in any number of ways.

     "Better days will return: we will be with our friends again; we will be with our families again; we will meet again.” - The Queen.of England
     "I'd say you're a terrible reporter." - "President" Donald Trump

     Woman covered in Jesus' blood says she can't get sick because she's Christian. So I guess every one of the nearly 90.000 who'd died of COVID-19 were all Muslims, Buddhists, Jews, Hindus and atheists? That'll come as a surprise to Italy.

      I remember a couple of weeks ago, I put up on Facebook a link about a dog in Hong Kong that was suspected to have died of COVID-19 and I was shouted down by dozens of my "friends" that it was a conspiracy theory, that it wasn't true. I guess enough of them had reported the post because Fuckbook took it down with no warning, explanation or appellate process.
      Looks like I was right, all along, COVID-19 CAN be transmitted by and to animals.

     I hate to say it but I have to agree with Jennifer Rubin here. The administration should be nowhere near the vaccine when it's ready to distribute. As it stands now, only 0.5 to 1% of the US population has been tested for coronavirus.

    Trump says he sees light at the end of the tunnel. But it's from the oncoming freight train of COVID-19. Plus, it's a very poor choice of words, if history's our guide.

     Meme intermission.

     It shouldn't surprise anyone that Don Coronaleone is using mob boss tactics to get the government to force hydroxychloroquine on us without it being thoroughly tested. He knows the only way he'll win reelection is to position himself as the savior of America prior to election day.

      600 New Yorkers died last night alone. Our eight seconds in the saddle is just starting.

     This seven year-old article had put the lie to our narrative that using the atom bomb on Japan ended the war. We did not; The Soviet Union did. Our entire nuclear narrative and strategy over the last 75 years is based on a bald-faced lie.

     This is the most dreaded side effect of COVID-19 and almost no one's writing about it- Your own immune system.

     We're completely, utterly fucked. Now Trump's calling the guy over whom he was impeached for advice on how do deal with coronavirus. Talk about the senile leading the senile.

      Duh, thank you, Captain Obvious.

     Boris Johnson is now in intensive care. This kicks up the seriousness of this pandemic a huge notch. I sincerely hope the PM recovers and that this better informs him as to how to deal with this crisis.

     Always trust that the government and corporate America will have your back during a crisis. Look at the wonderful example set by Target, Whole Foods and Amazon, for instance.

     Here are some quick answers to any basic questions you might have when the eagle shits, as we used to say in the service.

     "Fine, who has been acting DOD IG since 2016, will revert to his position as principal deputy inspector general, while Sean O'Donnell, the Environmental Protection Agency's inspector general, will serve as the acting DOD IG in addition to his current duties at EPA.
    Additionally, Fine will no longer serve as head of the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee, a position he was tapped for March 30."
      Is anyone really surprised at anything this shaved orangutan does at this point?

     This is a right winger writing this, mind you. Why did Navarro warn Trump about it only in the context of the economy? Yet the American people were left in the dark.

      This aged well. Ladies & Germs, your new WH Press Secretary. (Seriously.)

      For thee, not for me, mofos.
