Staying at home
My PCP that I had for decades is a DO. It's a medical degree from a school that teaches them to look at the patient more holistically than MDs do. It's a real degree from a real med school.
If another couple of Republican senators have to quarantine this coming week, Mitch won’t have the votes to bring the ACB nom to the floor. There’s never been a virtual SCOTUS confirmation, even appellate judges have gotten only in-person hearings since the crud started.
I would not be surprised that Trump would be demanding any treatment that he might have heard about, regardless of whether it is needed or not. No-one is going to refuse him anything because no-one stands up to him. His reputation on how he treats scientist and medical professionals precedes him.
McConnell refused to allow virtual voting. Pelosi passed a virtual voting Resolution in the House months ago, when a number of Congress critters tested positive. With two Republican members of the Judiciary Committee out with the crud, they may not have enough votes to get the nomination out of Committee. With three Repubicans gone from full Senate, and Murkowski and Collins saying they won't vote to confirm before the election, there may not be enough Republicans to confirm her if they succeed in moving the nomination to the Floor of the Senate.
Furthermore, McConnell can't even pass a Resolution to move to virtual voting, because he can't get enough people into the Senate to vote for it. Hoist on his own petard.
He can reassure the public without secret service agents being forced into a small enclosed space with him. It's not the same as the helicopter ride to Walter Reed, which was medically necessary, and it's not the same as secret service agents protecting the president from external threats. This is POTUS deliberately putting people at risk for something that could have been accomplished in other ways.I expected the joyride, too.
I can see some benefit from it: reassuring the public, calming any hysteria about the president's condition, etc. I don't think it was a good idea, but I didn't have the "pure evil" reaction either.
Going to the fundraiser was a worse move, and there was really no public benefit or charitable interpretation of that.
As good an excuse as any to stay away from that idjit.I'm amused that Melania was asked on Saturday if she was going to visit Trump in the hospital and she apparently said she wouldn't because she didn't want to endanger her Secret Service drivers or something like that,
I heard him say that. Something about other military patients or something. I'm not going to look for it.He went to visit other patients at Walter Reed - did I read that RIGHT?
I didn't say all. After my mom was home from the hospital the first time, she was on both at different times of the dayNot all inhalers used for Asthma or COPD are steriod inhalers. Bronchodilators like albuterol don't contain steriods.
Different chyrons last night said "joy ride", "drive by" and "photo op". I say typically irresponsible.I thought we would be screaming all night that Trump commandeered a limo to take him out of the hospital for a spin.
They are showing pictures of the part of the Supreme Court thing that was inside, with Barrett's kids. A FB meme said something about her not being responsible enough to take care of her kids, she shouldn't be on the court.Going to the fundraiser was a worse move,
