Trump

White House coronavirus adviser Dr. Scott Atlas speaks during a news conference Sept. 16 at the White House in Washington.

There has been much recent discussion by the President and others touting “herd immunity” as the way to go to conquer COVID-19 in the United States. Dr. Scott Atlas has been hyping this theory on Fox and other media and is a new advisor to President Trump on this matter. Trump likes this idea because it allows him to do nothing in response to the virus — what he has always wanted. Remember his early comments such as “it will wash over the country” referring to the virus?

However, there are a number of problems concerning promoting natural herd immunity, especially for this novel virus.

What should President Trump done to stop the virus? Let me clue you. Once it left the lab in China there was no stopping it. It will not be stopped unless people develop an immunity to it. On a side note. I have treated as many people as Dr. Fauci.

Why isn’t anyone in the corrupt dem media blaming China?

How can we take you seriously when you didn't mention Sweden once in your piece? I guess I don't understand why you're writing this at all. I do know why Mr. Morris printed it. How many people in the US suffered with the Swine Flu?

60 million

Yep. Thank goodness it wasn't as deadly as the Chinese flu. The 12K+ that died from the swine flu didn't seem to matter to democrats. They seem to care more for those who died from the Chinese flu because there's a Republican in office. Kind of like when someone accuses Joe Biden of sexual harassment. We should see some real interesting editorial during this weeks Amy Coney Barrett nomination hearings. I'm sure Mr. Morris will be duty bound to talk about some hearsay garbage like he did during the Kavanaugh hearings. Still no peep on Tara Reade from Mr. Morris.

Swine flu and Tara Reade...grasping there. How about Stormy Daniels (trump didn’t know her but paid her off lol) or the 15 other women who’ve come forward about trump?

Cases don't indicate symptoms or illness. Cases don't mean hospitalization. Cases don't mean serious illness. Cases don't even mean that the person can infect anyone else. Cases aren't deaths. Cases are pretty irrelevant at this point. Overall survival rate 99.96%. For anyone under 70, the survival rate is basically 100%.

It is our patriotic duty to live as free Americans, not under the tyranny that has been imposed on us by our government. There is no honor in doing stupid things just because some government person told you to. Absolutely none. It is dangerous to believe otherwise.

If you can get to this link you will find it interesting. It's from WebMD, by the CDC and dated March 2nd 2020. It would be funny if so many people haven't died from the virus. My favorite part refers to mask not being effective and the WHO saying it doesn't spread easily. That darned ole Google.

Aren’t you the one who tried to ridicule Antone for suggesting you and several others google before you post so you don’t come across so ignorant?! You can’t have it both ways bro.

Biden still thinks he's running for the senate.

What a buffoon

And trump thinks he has a protective glow from Covid. What a dolt.
