Physician can’t figure out why Trump is being ‘triggered’ by the idea of schools opening windows to avoid COVID in class

It was announced Wednesday that the White House would prefer schools don’t consult the Center for Disease Control when deciding when and how to reopen.

MSNBC’s Nicolle Wallace asked Dr. Vin Gupta how schools could possibly open safely, gather indoors, or even eat together in the cafeteria.

“The short answer is ‘no,'” said Dr. Gupta. “I do not recommend that at all. I love what Governor Phil Murphy (D-NJ) and Bill de Blasio have said. They’ve said, indoor dining, we’re done with it. Outdoor dining is okay because indoor transmission is 20 times higher in certain cases if you’re dining close by — because we think that that’s maybe there’s ‘airborne transmission.’ I hate that term, it’s confusing, but small droplets potentially from somebody infected with COVID-19 might persist in the air for hours over long distances.”

He explained that’s why the school policies by the CDC make sense.

“Ventilation,” he explained. “It makes no sense why opening windows is such a trigger word or trigger phrase for the president. We need ventilation. That’s why indoor anything, we can’t have it right now—outdoor congregations, less than 10 with social distancing and masks, potentially. But indoor dining, definitely not. We need governors across the country to take a strong stance.”

While it might work for older children to wear masks and follow careful guidelines, it’s unclear how schools will be able to get younger children to keep their masks on during the full day at school. Currently, even adults don’t want to wear masks.

Trump threatened schools that if they didn’t reopen he wouldn’t give them any funding.

On his new political show on YouTube, commentator Keith Olbermann ripped into President Donald Trump for his performance during the final presidential debate. Olbermann said that Trump "ran out of bullsh*t" as he tried to attack his rival Joe Biden.

"I don't mean to say that he was honest," he clarified. "It seems he was lying and manipulating reality at an even higher rate than usual. But with a few momentary exceptions, the salesmanship, the oxygen of his rise to power, was gone."

Olbermann said Trump needed "a debate knockout." Instead, the incumbent president just appeared "stupid and dull."

Mary Trump sheds light on the president’s bizarre pattern of psychological projection

Published

President Donald Trump's niece, psychologist Mary Trump, appeared Friday on CNN to discuss her uncle's behavior during the recent president debate.

CNN host Anderson Cooper noted that Tony Schwartz, who is best known for ghostwriting "Trump: The Art of the Deal," has said "that when the president attacks people, the words he uses, the attacks he wages against other people are really things that are true about himself."

The CNN host said a similar dynamic was at play during the final presidential debate when Trump attacked Biden as being part of an organized crime family.

"It is amazing how much projection there is and I don't know if that's the term," Cooper said.
