As public health officials plead with Americans to wear masks to stop the spread of COVID-19, Donald Trump shares debunked videos of “demon sex” doctor claiming that masks aren’t necessary

Yesterday, Facebook took down a video which was full of debunked claims about COVID-19. Shortly thereafter, Donald Trump began sharing clips from the same video with his 84.2 million followers on Twitter. Among other things, “experts” quoted in the video argue that masks don’t stop the spread of the disease, and that the antimalarial drug hydroxychloroquine cures COVID-19. Neither of these things is even remotely true. [Here, in the real world, the FDA revoked the emergency use authorization for hydroxychloroquine on June 15, citing that it was “unlikely to be effective in treating COVID-19,” despite Trump’s many comments to the contrary.]

And, it should be noted, that, according to the Daily Beast, Donald Trump shared these video clips about masks not being necessary, just after his administration’s leading infectious disease experts Deborah Birx and Anthony Fauci, held a call with governors, advocating for “mask mandates in several states.”

I’ve said it before, but I don’t see how an objective observer could watch what is happening right now in America and come away with any other interpretation than Donald Trump is actively trying to kill us. What other possible explanation could there be to share videos encouraging people not to wear masks in the midst of a deadly pandemic like they one we’re now living through?

Here, with a little more context, is a quote from today’s Washington Post: “Trump’s decision to share the misleading video comes amid mounting criticism, from opponents and allies alike, over his handling of a pandemic that has now killed at least 145,000 people in the U.S. The president spent months obstinately denying the severity of the crisis, refusing to wear a mask in public, blaming rising case numbers on testing, and campaigning against governors’ shutdown orders.”

So, with all of that by way of background, I’d like for you to watch the following clip from Trump’s White House coronavirus briefing this afternoon. [This is why I’ve called you all here today.]

For those of you who are either unwilling or unable to watch, here’s a partial transcript from the above exchange between CNN’s Kaitlan Collins and the President of the United States on one of the doctors whose video he shared. I think it’s one of the best distillations of Donald Trump’s America that I’ve ever come across.

COLLINS: “The woman that you said is a ‘great doctor,’ in the video that you retweeted last night, said that masks don’t work, and there is a cure for COVID-19, both of which health experts say is not true. She’s also made videos saying that doctors make medicines using DNA from aliens, and that they’re trying to create a vaccine to make you immune from becoming religious.”

TRUMP: “I can tell you this. She was on air, along with many other doctors, and they were big fans of hydroxychloroquine. And I thought she was very impressive… I thought her voice was an important voice, but I know nothing about her.”

The doctor in question, whose name is Stella Immanuel, also demanded a jar of Fauci’s urine, along with samples from several CNN hosts, in order to test for the presence of hydroxychloroquine, the suggestion being that they’re secretly availing themselves of this miracle cure, while keeping it from the American people. [I was really hoping that we were finally done with hydroxychloroquine shit, but these things just never seem to die once Donald Trump injects them into the American collective conscience.] What’s more, from what I’m reading now, Immanuel also believes that many common ailments can be attributed to sexual visitations by demons and witches. [She also apparently believes that our government is being controlled by reptilians, but who doesn’t these days?]

Somewhat related, I’m thinking that I should cut things short tonight to work on a song about getting gout from a night spent marinating in demon sperm.

    Hydroxychloroquine has been proven to reduce fatalities and have some clinical benefit. The Lancet has withdrawn its previous publication that suggested it was not effective and three separate peer reviewed studies confirm its benefit.

    It’s cheap and has over 50 years of use that proves it is safe to use. Until we find better treatments that are widely available, doctors will use it to help the patients most likely to benefit from its use. Since it is an FDA approved pharmaceutical, doctors will use it off label, which is legal.

    Someone in a lab coat said something Trump wants to hear – therefore she’s a “great doctor.”

    I suspect she’ll be the next Surgeon General, or perhaps the new head of the CDC, before the week is out.

    Seriously though, at this point I don’t even blame Trump (who is clearly unwell) so much as I do Mitch McConnell, Lindsay Graham, and other supposed “leaders” who clearly know how insane and dangerous this all is, but refuse to stand and oppose this nonsense.

    When it’s all said and done, I’m going to bet that hydroxychloroquine won’t be the drug that showed benefit, but systemic steroid therapy will. That was a common combination in the spring surge after hydroxychloroquine alone showed little improvement, and at the mid to tail end, systemic steroids without hydroxychloroquine was what was used, along with frequent patient rotation to prone position and a much higher threshold to move to ventilator use.

    Hydroxychloroquine appears to help early and allows the patient to clear the virus early and reduce the coughing and elevated temperatures. However, as the infection progresses, the ill effects are caused by the body’s immune response. Dexamethasone and other systemic steroids calm the immune response and prevent organ damage.

    The studies that used hydroxychloroquine for advanced stages of the disease showed no effect. But it remains the best therapy to date at the onset of the infection.

    Had my regular facetime happy hour call with my hoosier cousin yesterday. Got to hear how his wife’s brothers family in North Carolina is struggling with all four family members with the virus. The 18 year old brought it home from his girl friends house which had had a social event two weeks ago (girl friend and her mom both infected). 103 fevers but no one hospitalized yet. Last week we had talked about the outbreak at my brother in laws work place down river. N Carolina got test results back in like three days, 6 to 7 days in places here in Michigan. Waiting to hear from my sisters family in backwater trumpian Illinois. Using the Georgia Tech virus probability app, my sisters family has 90 % chance of exposure in public spaces frequented by 100 people

    EOS speaks with great certainty about things that are inconclusive. I guess that’s part of being a person of great faith. EOS ignored every other aspect of Mark’s account of what Trump said and did to focus on the one piece that’s still muddy, because scientific research on emerging diseases is always muddy.

    For those seeking an unbiased review of what we know and don’t about Hydroxichloroquine, here is a useful link:

    FWIW – Sometimes I think it is useful to try to imagine going back in time just a bit, to consider how current events might have been viewed and acted upon in an earlier context.

    For instance, if five or 10 years ago, a U.S. President would have promoted information that was clearly wrong, misleading (and dangerous) in the midst of about a global pandemic; while also promoting health advice from someone who believes that some common medicines are made with alien DNA, and that certain health conditions are caused by sex (or sexual dreams) involving demons and witches – the Senate would be preparing to invoke Section 4 of the 25th Amendment.

    Flash forward to the current day, and what’s described above is just “Tuesday.” (Yawn …)

    Sometimes it’s hard to believe just how much our society, culture, and politics have been degraded in the past few years, but there you have it.

    I, for one, find it hard to imagine how we’re ever going to claw our way back up from this.

    Thank you for the literature search. Unfortunately, the experience the author reports is not exactly the same as what was experienced here. If only there was some public health institution that would be charged with collecting data, theories, and practices about rapidly developing nuances of a disease not previously experienced on a wide scale in this country that could speak to these matters in a scientific, authoritative , and unbiased manner so that physicians didn’t have to continually reinvent the wheel in each newly affected area. There might be some sort of regular publication disseminated and shared, with some recommendations based on scientific evidence, as well as acknowledging uncertainty and unknown aspects of this illness. That’s really been the main shortfall from a hospital and health system standpoint.

    Anonymous,
    Which public health institution would you recommend? WHO – the group that commended China for it’s initial handling of the viral outbreak and that it couldn’t be spread from person to person? The Surgeon General’s office that announced masks were harmful to the general population? Or maybe the NIH, where the infectious disease section is headed by a doctor that has an economic interest in Remdisivor?

    Historically in this country the CDC was who we looked to, and indeed took international leadership in many areas with the WHO following. It’s like the UN. Although equal in nominal status, every member knows who has the actual resources and infrastructure to do the hard stuff. Heck, even in Washtenaw County, all the separate school districts generally follow AAPS in announcing snow days as only AAPS has enough resources to have real time monitoring of weather conditions on a consistent basis to make that call. It also gives cover to the smaller members when the call is perceived to be incorrect in 20/20 hindsight.

    Did anyone else notice how Mark and Jean use the same tactics. Attack the person who makes a claim without analyzing the veracity of the statement. The African doctor who believes in demonic activity cannot possibly be correct on an unrelated topic… I believe in the Bible, therefore I can’t possibly understand peer-reviewed scientific journal articles.

    And Anonymous states that what is true in Connecticut, France, Brazil, and Detroit is not what has been experienced “here”, without stating where “here” is. And as the go to science authority on this blog, why would he think anecdotal reports trump statistically valid, peer-reviewed studies?

    Each hospital health system is a different “here” because of a difference of patients and resources. The Henry Ford data was shared and discussed by physicians in the area with the lead investigators, even before publication. Just because something makes it into publication doesn’t make it “right”. It is one piece of evidence supporting a hypothesis. As time goes on, more evidence will develop that will show whether the effect is as great as claimed, greater than claimed, or lesser than claimed, to the point of no effect at all. Currently there is a mixed bag of claims of effectiveness and non effectiveness. I work for a health system in SE Michigan other than Henry Ford that has treated more COVID patients than Henry Ford, and our experience is different.

    Florida lost 214 of our fellow humans to the trumpvirus so far today. I believe their death total now exceeds Michigan. Our new cases remain in the hundreds— not good, but Florida reported almost another 10000 with over 600 new hospital patients.

    Dont let the death cult distract from the catastrophe they created and support.

    The publications by the physicians at Henry Ford and Yale included patients from a wide variety of locations. The hypothesis backed up by statistically valid data stands until proven to be invalid by other experimental scientific analysis, not based on random observations in a single location without controls or a representative sampling. Maybe your work would allow you to do a retrospective study with data analysis. Until then, it really doesn’t matter what the physicians at your institution discussed among themselves.

    Wobblie,

    I think my math was correct enough. It is open for debate for sure but when adjusted for population size and larger portion of people over 70 Florida would need 15k-16k deaths to be equal to our 6k. You sound like a propagandist every time you post.

    Death cult mathematics. Lets talk body counts. Michigans population is 46% of the size of Florida. So your math is wrong. In any event with 100 dead a day in the pipeline, with no end in site , i imagine they will get to 15-16 thousand dead by election day.

    What do you think DeSantas should do? How about Texas where they could not hide the numbers any longer and added 600 deaths in one day.

    I think for a more apples to apples comparison you need to also factor in the different sizes of elderly populations, obviously. Granted I took the easy route by just factoring in the over 70 population difference and the different death rate for that group—but what I did is better than the garbage you are doing everyday.

    Next you are going to declare that the UP has sickle cell anemia under control whereas SE Michigan is blowing it.

    AAPS does the heavy lifting in step 1.

    Other county superintendents are brought in later in step 2.

    A decision is made and if the decision is to close then it is pushed out by email and automated phone calls. There were two such closures in the week before the COVID closure in March. I kind of miss the annoyance of anticipating the phone ringing around 530 am.
