    That is exactly what they are saying. The medical professionals in the CDC and FDA that approve drug development are the same professionals who have been doing their jobs for quite a while. The...

    [/QUOTE]

    I agree that a COVID vaccine should not be refused on political grounds alone, but you have really distorted the positions that prominent Democrats have taken. Anti-vaxxers refuse to...

    Pence's objection to the plexiglass is pro forma for a Trump supporter. It is necessary to show disdain for the danger of this virus. Now that his objection is in the record, he can reluctantly...

    WTF. Do you really have such a serious problem with reading comprehension? Hell yes there is bigotry, prejudice, and racism among people of all races. However political disagreement is not any of...

    A black (or white) who strongly disagrees with another (either black or white) over their politics is not racial prejudice or racial bigotry. It is political disagreement. If the political...

    When medical professionals treat infected patients, they normally wear full protective gear, not just face masks. That includes eye protection, head covering, and gloves. Although COVID-19 is...

    Proud Boys certainly does vociferously protest any claim that they are white supremacists, but it is also true that white supremacists don't often want to be branded with that label. They are not as...

    Bear in mind that the man who ran the briefing, Dr. Sean Conley, is Trump's personal physician. He received his medical degree in osteopathic medicine in 2006. He is also the physician who admitted...

    Failing to follow that up with a full denunciation means that Trump is reluctant to spell it out and thereby alienate any of his supporters. That's what it means.

    If only he weren't flashing the white supremacy hand gesture in that picture with Roger Stone. I suspect that he thinks of himself more as a dark-skinned Latino than an African American, but none of...

    You are thinking of Enrique Tarrio, the Cuban American who is leader of Proud Boys since last year (2019). He is dark-skinned and almost certainly has African ancestry, like many Cubans. Sometimes...

    Now that Trump has come down with COVID-19, it is unlikely that there will be any more presidential debates. Maybe the vice-presidential debate will still take place, but I don't expect Mike Pence...

    But Kushner is only a sub-heading under the main heading of "Trump-induced deaths".
