I was thinking about how historically impactful 2020 is in American history. It’s always difficult to place your time in historical perspective.

I think this era has surpassed the Vietnam era in historical importance with the pandemic taking more American lives per capita, domestic unrest, the Trump presidency, and the inflection point where China matches or even overtakes the US as a global superpower.

P.S. if pandemic deaths in the US surpass 360k or so the pandemic will pass WW1 in American deaths per capita.

And the wall came tumbling down: Watch Trump’s border wall get felled by tropical storm Hanna

From link.




It’s appropriate that the former Hurricane Hanna — now downgraded to a tropical storm since making landfall —is named after a woman.

After all, everyone has been predicting that women would be taking Trump down at the ballot boxes in November, so it’s perfectly fitting that it was a female-named storm that took down his worthless and now so obviously poorly constructed wall on the nation’s southern border with Mexico.
Mother Nature gives and she takes, but only Trump’s vanity believed that he could overcome forces that humans simply can’t control.

An hour before Dr. Anthony S. Fauci threw the first pitch at the season opener between the New York Yankees and the Washington Nationals, President Trump stood on the briefing room stage at the White House and declared that he, too, had been invited to throw out his own opening pitch.

There was one problem: Mr. Trump had not actually been invited by the Yankees, according to one person with knowledge of Mr. Trump’s schedule. His announcement surprised both Yankees officials and the White House staff.

After the president’s announcement, White House aides scrambled to let the team know that he was actually booked on Aug. 15, although they have not said what he plans to do. Over the weekend, Mr. Trump officially canceled.

Trump should be lucky he isn't throwing the first pitch for the Miami Marlins (which has practically half of the team (the active roster to be more specific) tested positive for COVID-19), especially given that Trump now lives in Palm Beach, which is within Marlins territory.

I wish that he threw the first pitch to the Marlins.

Coronavirus: Trump sticks by unproven hydroxychloroquine

July 29, 2020

US President Donald Trump has again defended the use of hydroxychloroquine to ward off coronavirus, contradicting his own public health officials.

He said the malaria medication was only rejected as a Covid-19 treatment because he had recommended its use.

His remarks come after Twitter banned his eldest son for posting a clip promoting hydroxychloroquine.

There is no evidence the drug can fight the virus, and regulators warn it may cause heart problems.

Last month, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) cautioned against using the drug to treat coronavirus patients, following reports of "serious heart rhythm problems" and other health issues.
