Medical experts are raising serious questions about President Donald Trump’s health as the White House scrambles to justify many of the speculative decisions being made.

During a panel discussion on MSNBC, multiple medical experts weighed in on Trump being treated with Remdesivir. Although it’s not uncommon for patients to be treated with Remdesivir, what is uncommon is the use of it for mild symptoms which the White House has claimed the president has.

Since the White House has remained opaque about the president’s condition, medical experts are not sure he is doing as well as officials claim he is. Dr. Vin Gupta, MSNBC Medical Contributor weighed in with his concerns about the choice of treatment.

“There’s what we see which is a president on that short video which suggested… he looked pretty good,” one of the doctors said, admitting he was “encouraged” by that. “What’s a little puzzling and I’ve gotten some push back on this from supporters of the president which is this notion of why he is getting the antibody cocktail from Regeneron.”

He continued, “Why are they giving him… he is the first person outside of a cellular protocol — a cellu-protocol from Regeneron that only has less than 300 patients enrolled. to receive this experimental drug. Why are they doing that?”

Although Trump appeared physically fine, The Washington Post is reporting that the abrupt decision to move the president to Walter Reed Medical Center was done for the purpose of optics. The publication reports that the president was moved while he could still walk.

“As Trump’s condition deteriorated during the day Friday, the president and his team ultimately made the decision to send him to Walter Reed preemptively — and, from a public relations perspective, when he was still able to walk to Marine One on his own, according to one outside adviser in frequent contact with White House officials. They feared the possibility of a further decline, and what that might mean, both for the president’s health and his political optics.” – The Washington Post

The president is said to have a fever, shortness of breath, and fatigue which are all common coronavirus symptoms.

Some conservatives are becoming apoplectic as the lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continue unabated

Published

on

The lunatic antics of the Trump legal team continued unabated over this past weekend. After his mysteriously oozing press conference last Thursday, Donald Trump's personal lawyer Rudy Giuliani kept an uncharacteristically low profile. Jenna Ellis, his partner in the "elite strike force," took to Twitter to insult longtime Republican pollster Frank Luntz, accusing him of "micropenis syndrome," but beyond that she too stayed quiet. They left the public appearances to Sidney Powell, the member of the team best known as former national security adviser Michael Flynn's least competent attorney.

Attorney Ken White, a former federal prosecutor, has taken a look at some of the Trump campaign's latest legal filings and has found them to be equal parts "shockingly ridiculous" and "stunningly incompetent."

WATCH: Trump shamed Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede White House pardon contest

Published

on

It was just two years ago that President Donald Trump mocked a Thanksgiving turkey for refusing to concede the election for a White House pardon. As Thanksgiving 2020 approaches, Trump has officially become that turkey.

"This was a fair election... unfortunately, Carrots refused to concede and demanded a recount," Trump announced about the battle between Carrots and Peas.

"We're still fighting with Carrots," he joked in a speech. "And I will tell you, we've come to a conclusion: Carrots, I'm sorry to tell you, the results did not change. Too bad for Carrots."

It's unclear if Carrots still maintains the election was rigged, as President Trump does about the 2020 election. He joined Peas at Virginia Tech’s “Gobblers Rest” exhibit in Blacksburg, Virginia. There students and veterinarians within Virginia Tech’s Department of Animal and Poultry Sciences in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences care for all turkeys given a pardon.
