Mike Pence sucks up to Trump

During another White House cabinet meeting, President Donald Trump’s team seemed to play “dear leader.”

Vice President Mike Pence gushed over the president, his family and the accomplishments of the Trump White House.

“I want to thank you, Mr. President. I want to thank you for speaking on behalf of and fighting every day for the forgotten men and women of America,” Pence said after Trump touted the corporate tax rate being lowered.

John Oliver busts Trump, ‘moron’ Jared Kushner and the GOP governors: ‘I pray you never show your face again’

Published

"Last Week Tonight" host John Oliver told Stephen Colbert in an interview that filming his show during the shutdown has been difficult because he has technological issues. He described it as being akin to a civilian being forced to land a plane. But the host managed to make it through to bash President Donald Trump, son-in-law Jared Kushner, and the governors of Alabama, Georgia, and Florida.

Oliver began by attacking Trump for praising himself for only 200,000 people, likely dying of coronavirus in the U.S. instead of millions.

"OK, setting aside the fact that leading disease forecasters are mystified at how Trump got to those numbers, trying to spin 200,000 deaths as a good job because it's not millions, is the most callous way to minimize the deaths of Americans imaginable," Oliver said. "Were it not for the fact that Trump responded to 9/11 on 9/11 by pointing out that he used to own the second tallest building in downtown Manhattan, now he owns the tallest. And the thing is, that wasn't just offensive, it wasn't even true."

What it feels like to survive COVID-19’s dreaded ‘cytokine storm’

Published

Of all the possible compounding effects of COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus, the cytokine storm is one of the most feared. An immune system overreaction in which the body is flooded with the eponymous signaling molecules, those who suffer a cytokine storm are at risk of dying at the hand of their own immune system, as an indirect effect of the virus they are fighting.

This is the opposite of how we think of our immune system working: if we have a good, strong immune system, we should be safe from the novel coronavirus, right? Unfortunately in this case, too much of a good thing is not a good thing. This is true beyond the example of the cytokine storm, as there are other diseases, often milder ones, caused by a misbehaving immune system; lupus, allergic reactions and celiac disease are all examples of overactive immune responses.

‘This president has blood on his hands’: Congresswoman rips Trump for touting anti-Malaria drug as miracle cure

Published

on

The nation's top expert on infectious diseases was forced once again on Sunday to negate President Donald Trump's latest claim that an anti-malaria drug can treat coronavirus, which the president made at his Saturday evening press conference.

On CBS's "Face the Nation," National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) director Dr. Anthony Fauci told host Margaret Brennan that "in terms of science, I don't think we could definitively say it works," regarding the use of hydroxychloroquine for the virus.
