Dumb and Dumber

If there is anyone that is viewed globally as a dumba** as much as Donald Trump, it can only be his adult children.

If you are interested in what his under-accommplished sons Donald Jr. and Eric said this week that has put them in the news, here it is.

Let the eye-rolling begin.

    Dumber and Dumbest?
    President Donald Trump told the press Monday that he's been taking hydroxychloroquine because he believes it is a miracle drug.

    After studies showed hydroxychloroquine gave little benefits to COVID-19 patients, scientists began looking elsewhere for drugs. Still, Trump maintains that he is all about hydroxychloroquine.

    3.2.1. Uday announces he has been shining a UV light in his posterior area for a week; Qusay has been hooked up to a Clorox IV drip. So much safer and effective than a mask. And, manly.

    Although it is very likely Trump is lying. He can't let go of his delusion of always being right. Or, he has tested positive. If Stormy Daniels is to be believed, Trump isn't much for prophylaxis.

    Trump said he consulted with the White House doctor:  "I asked him what do you think. He said, `Well if you'd like it.' I said, `Yeah I'd like it. I'd like to take it.'"

    ... he's taking the anti-malarial drug Hydroxychloroquine. He really doesn't give a schitt about the safety and well being of his own devoted voter base, does he? Because they're the only ones who believe him.

    I have to start with the assumption.. (5.00 / 2) (#6)

    that he's lying about taking that drug, as he lies about virtually everything else.  If he is taking hydroxychloroquine, he's not taking enough and should probably consume a gallon or two a day, just to be sure.

    And members of his administration have been sycophants in everything else, they should consume as much as possible to prove their loyalty. Maybe they could all get together and have a hydroxie cocktail party.

    I agree about hydroxie.

    Becoming infected with the virus impacts people other than the individual (s) who contact it through their own irresponsible actions.  For example: if only 10 people at the convention test positive due to their own stupidity, they will bring the virus back into their communities, their family structure and put the dedicated health care workers who will be required to treat them at further unnecessary risk.

    I doubt he is taking it.  But I hope he is.

    When Drumpf said that he was taking hydroxycloroxquine, and, "I'm still here", my first thought was, "You are not taking nearly enough, then."

    for film jobs in the jungle in hopes of preventing malaria.  While it works for that it's a terrible drug for the body.  It always made my skin itch and upset my stomach.  Like desertswine says Trump is probably lying, and even if he isn't I predict he won't take it for long.

    Brits made the best of it
    Quinine powder is so bitter that British officials stationed in early 19th century India and other tropical posts where medicinal quinine was recommended mixed the powder with soda and sugar, and tonic water was created. The first commercial tonic water was produced in 1858.[1] The mixed drink gin and tonic also originated in British colonial India, when the British mixed their medicinal quinine tonic with gin.

    ... my wife and I were on an anti-malarial regimen using a chloroquine derivative called Mefloquine, because some of the countries where we would be traveling, Zimbabwe, Botswana, Mozambique, Swaziland, etc., had high incidence of the disease. (Especially Mozambique.) But the drug was dosed in a very limited amount once weekly for three weeks because, as the doctor told us, anything beyond that was toxic to the body.
