    Trump's lackeys carrying his water:

    NPR: CDC Director Says New Analysis Exonerates Agency On Testing Delay

    Yeah right.

    Not to mention at this point in time it wouldn't matter even if it were true. There were no tests when we needed them. We still don't have enough now.

    I remind the gentle readers of this Lancet Editorial posted earlier: The Trump administration's further erosion of the CDC will harm global cooperation in science and public health, as it is trying to do by defunding WHO.

    Mr Baby-tantrum-in-chief makes all kinds of threats he really doesn't have the authority to carry out. It's unclear if he can really 'defund' the WHO in his 'blame everyone but himself' fantasy world. And in his tantrum over Twitter daring to call him a liar, Trump made a bunch of hollow threats.

    And on the, 'play Trump's handling of the pandemic up' front we get this unqualified claim:
    Defense secretary says coronavirus vaccine will be available within months, but experts skeptical

    Of course the claim is coming from other experts, which makes one wonder how much stock they all bought in Moderna just before the announcements. That stock went up 10% today.

    Other experts are saying if a vaccine is made that fast it will be because normal safety tests have not been done. That worries me because I will likely be getting vaccine to vaccinate the EMS providers I work with. Health care workers are high on the priority list for COVID 19 vaccines. I was in the loop for the 2009 flu vaccine. I trusted that vaccine. Trump wasn't sticking his filthy little fingers into the pot.
