    I just love his message which is the complete opposite of the media.

    The media speak on behalf of scientists. Trump only speaks on his own behalf.

    I mean...not letting corona dominate you is a lot easier when you've got an army of doctors at your disposal with top of the line treatment, and your job consists of signing blank papers.

    But ey...nitpicking aside, I gotta agree. It's nice to hear him say something positive for once. :)

    When you have access to drugs that cost more than what you paid taxes, of course you shouldn't let it dominate you.

    tHAT UNNECESSARY CAR TRIP after i went out from Medical Center, putted all people (guards, driver) around him in danger, they are now forced to 14-day quarantine or even dead, cauz this Trump's show off.

    I found it pretty amusing.

    His tax income was 600k as he said last week debate, btw what miracle drug was that? and really costs that much?

    yeah tell that to the people already dead from it.....oh wait he can't cause their dead,honestly why do you deem socialism bad (hint in no way affiliated with communism) we would've had free healthcare by now if the GOP didn't butcher obamacare (Have you read the UNALTERED proposial by Obama? it was an exact mirror of canada's system) but yeah considering the GOP mutalated it passed it is gonna repeal it (forcing many like me with pre existing conditions) off healthcare and still blaime it on obama? (now i can imagine if Obama did veto the bill and assuming the GOP reversed it to law by 2/3 vote they'll still blame obama and those gop supporters would believe that lie) anyways getting derailed by me,to sum it up socialism = many benifets including free healthcare which would possably save lives when this drug cocktail is approved because i can garuntee you big pharma doesn't hold the middle classes interest and will drive up the price of that treatment

    "Don't let the coronavirus dominate you" he says as 200,000+ people lay dead and millions have lost their jobs and housing due to the pandemic.

    When he went home from Walter Reed, he pulled a stunt at the balcony, taking his mask off, and weaving his fist, then walking without a mask into the white house. Most of staff there is older. (Reportedly.)

    Also, while on the balcony, he seemed to have problems breathing. The steroid he was given is given to help with lung function, currently the whitehouse is withholding information on his last negative test, and his lung scans. (Basically journalists way to try to find out if he has pneumonia.)

    Also, no report on him getting the antibody cocktail anymore. It simply vanished from reporting. (Reporting now is based on the released list of medication he is on by Walter Reed and only includes medication that would be available to a general public.)

    Why did Ruth Bader Ginsburg get personal therapy specialists, the best surgeons, and cutting edge anti-cancer treatments that extended her life an extra 21 years and through 5 bouts with cancer since first being diagnosed in 1999?

    Same reason.

    This shit makes me mad either way. This level of care should be accessible to all americans. Also fuck RBG for letting trump get another supreme court pick. Her ass should've just stepped down under obama instead of dicking around and being petty.

    Economics.

    Also its not a 'miracle cure'. Its a medication thats still in clinical testing, head of the corporation producing it came out and said, that the president was taking it as well:
    https://www.wsj.com/articles/trumps-weight-age-gender-make-severe-covid-19-more-likely-11601660627
    edit: and
    https://nypost.com/2020/10/05/regeneron-ceo-says-trumps-use-of-drug-cocktail-puts-it-in-tough-spot/

    Which will boost their stock price.


    Think of it not as a cure, but as another medication in testing, with a potentially high success rate.

    People will get access to it eventually, but currently its in clinical testing (same as with the vaccine, find out how people react to it).

    When it does come out, it is likely, that it will only be available to those with money. Simply - because you cant produce it in necessary quantities for everyone.

    And since you cant (if you have money, or not), it brings you back to the issue of 'rate of spread' is still the main issue.

    You cant afford to treat "all people", especially not if many people infect themselves rapidly, so infection/outbreak prevention is really needed.

    This is where a vaccine comes in. (But also masks and social distancing. And limits on public gatherings. And contact tracing. And...) Vaccine is a one shot/two shot thing, thats financeable for entire populations.
    -

    Also, some people die of covid, because their bodies produce too many antibodies, that in an adverse reaction might attack their own cells. So having those artificial ones is not that 'miracle cure' but still, statistically, it probably helps quite a lot.

    Remdesivir and the Steroid he is on, more people that are infected already are getting. Depending probably also on availability - but both of those medications are comparatively cheap (they were invented for other illnesses, so currently their producers cant hike price up, without looking like criminals... ;) ), and more widely available.

    He got out of the hospital just for political reasons, people can't/shouldn't see him vulnerable/weak if he wants to get reelected.

    More political drama show.

    It's all about business, he's the TV Ad that some labs need to sell their overpriced "magic cure" to the masses.

    In the process, Trumpet gets some points by showing the masses he's "invincible" and the labs get the media covering they need to sell their "magic".

    I agree with Trump. I never worried about it back in December 2019 when I first heard about it, didn't worry when the entire "we have to shut down for 2 weeks to slow the curve" deal and after 11 months I'm still not worried about. Worrying is pointless. You shouldn't be a scared baby and let these sorts of things control you. Sure, take precautions, but it's not a really deadly virus with only around a 1% death rate. It's also good to stay positive and own the moment as being a little whiny pussy never helps anyone.

    Of course he don't have any symptoms, maybe he didn't even got Coronavirus.

    Doctors will say whatever he wants them to say! It's all about business, political business! Don't forget the huge revenue that will come afterwards!

    He's also returning to the campaign trail. You'd imagine someone that was really sick couldn't walk let alone travel and stand up to talk for hours at a time. Like I've said in other threads, the odds of you getting really sick let alone dying from covid-19 are low. Most people who get it don't even show symptoms or get ill.
