Trump finally finished his physical exam for the year.

He left his lift shoes on when he was measured: it seems the Donald has grown an inch since the first year (and no one believed the 6'2" when he made that claim!) And they apparently dropped 100 pounds from his weight, though say he has gained 1 pound since last year.

"His 2018 physical showed that Trump, at 6-foot 3-inches tall, had a body mass index of 29.9 last year, which places him in the overweight category on the verge of obesity, which is defined as a BMI of 30 or greater."

Its like when Ceasar declared himself an Emporer God but Trump said it without words. Ceasar was stabbed in the Rotundra which I hear is a very painful spot to be stabbed. This time the Senators are on Trump's side.

The irony doesn't stop there. When Kapernick took a knee on the football field I never expected a policeman to take a knee to murder. There are also cops who take a knee in solidarity with protestors.

He's losing ground with evangelicals so he had peaceful protesters attacked at the very same moment he was saying he was allied with them, all for a photo op in front of a church with a bible for a prop. Before he even took office I was thinking he could start a civil war with his hateful, devisive rhetoric and now it seems he's brought us to the brink of one just to further his own interests.

We have had Presidents who soared like eagles, we have even had chicken hawks but never before have we had such a big fat Tweety Bird.

Yesterday Tweety Bird posed like the statue of Liberty with a church as a backdrop. He held the bible above his head where the torch would go and in the other hand where a book should be be held by the heart, his arm hung limply by his side.

The Financial Times, which has been playing a blinder in keeping a statistical watch on Covid-19's track of devastation across the world, has finally come to the conclusion that none of the usual methods of comparing countries works.
They are now comparing countries' figures using the only figure that can't easily be juked, at least by a relatively honest government: the figure for deaths-above-normal.
This means that countries that say "Might've been Covid-19 or might've been pneumonia" and exclude deaths on that basis can't dodge the figures.

In the Telegrope today I read that the Lancet (UK august publication for doctors) that statistics for Hydroxychlorquine & Chlorquine used on 14,000 COVID-19 patients in US hospitals resulted in a 30% ish increase in the probability of death compared to 80,000 controls (not a controlled trial). With various permutations in conjunction with antibiotics it could be worse. And Heart arrhythmia rose more. And in one perm was 400% worse.

Americans are more familiar with the strategy of Trump lies.
First he makes the the accusation, then refers to the fact that an accusation exists. After that the transition of the accusation being a proven fact grows everyday until the whole lie becomes absolutely true with repetition.
Maybe there is an investigation but no matter what the finding, half will believe the accusation was proved, although it is always been a lie.
Its a bit like crude hypnosis with a couple conspiracy theory variations.

Part of the Turnip base is the American Taliban (private AK_47 militias). When they do essential functions that the government doesn't do, the militias gain respect. HOWEVER
Target practice, manuverses and armed storming of the Capital in Michigan to protest stay at home orders does little to help people who are under 14 feet of water from 2 failed dams.
All the guns and all the ammunition does NOT get Michigan on its feet again.

Turnip has said "Liberate Michigan, Virginia and your State. Reopen Today!"
The American Taliban is fading away
because Donald said he will not fund
Michigan in any way.

Trump Warns Farmers That Gun Control Will Leave Their Potatoes Defenseless

President Donald Trump offered an unusual warning to Virginia farmers on Tuesday, suggesting that their potatoes might be at risk and they will need to be armed to protect those spuds.

“We’re going after Virginia, with your crazy governor, we’re going after Virginia. They want to take your Second Amendment. You know that, right? You’ll have nobody guarding your potatoes.”

Virginia Gov. Ralph Northam (D) fired back on Twitter

    " I grew up on a Virginia farm, Mr. President—our potatoes are fine. And as the only medical doctor among our nation’s governors, I suggest you stop taking hydroxychloroquine."


Yeah, but what about Virginia's Turnips???

Trump really is a complete furking idiot for all seasons.

Donald Trump's parents both had the same middle name of...

What does that make Donald?

Every time I look at this title, it looks like "In Praise of Trump."

Could we change it to "In Praise of Rutabagas"?

Yes Donuel, it's the Darwin Awards grand finale. And the winner is...!!!

The Darwin Awards salute the improvement of the human genome by honoring those who accidentally remove themselves from it in a spectacular manner!

He has gained 50 lbs. - and lost 50 IQ points?

Will Trump replace Dr. Fauci with Jenny McCarthy?

It looks to me that Fauci is playing a razor-edge game. He is probably trying to remain there to protect his staff from a massive cull. When he retires and Twitler is voted out, there is this auto-biography waiting for a voracious public to snap up. And FWIW, and he will never tell, I reckon Comey had a covert recorder going at his first meeting with his Orangeness. Wouldn't you?

Johnson's Antidote, by Banjo Paterson

Some excerpts:

Johnson was a free-selector, and his brain went rather queer,
For the constant sight of serpents filled him with a deadly fear;
So he tramped his free-selection, morning, afternoon, and night,
Seeking for some great specific that would cure the serpent's bite.

.........
It will bring me fame and fortune! In the happy days to be,
Men of every clime and nation will be round to gaze on me --
Scientific men in thousands, men of mark and men of note,
Rushing down the Mooki River, after Johnson's antidote.
It will cure Delirium Tremens, when the patient's eyeballs stare
At imaginary spiders, snakes which really are not there.
When he thinks he sees them wriggle, when he thinks he sees them bloat,
It will cure him just to think of Johnson's Snakebite Antidote.'

.........

And the scientific person hurried off with utmost speed,
Tested Johnson's drug and found it was a deadly poison-weed;
Half a tumbler killed an emu, half a spoonful killed a goat,
All the snakes on earth were harmless to that awful antidote.

While searching for more information on another thread I found this:

Andrew Barton Paterson's poem Johnson's Antidote (Paterson is aka A.B. Paterson or Banjo Paterson.)

(Warning: there are some outdated expressions referring to race in the poem but he wrote his poetry early last century.)

They keep playing his idiotic and hypocritical quote about testing being overrated on the news shows and it occurred to me the in that clip he recently must have dosed off in his tanning booth because he looks like a reversed image of a red racoon.
