Palm Sunday is the beginning of a Holy week for many people of Faith and a great day to lift our voices in Prayer. I will be tuning into Pastor @greglaurie at @harvestorg Church in Riverside, California tomorrow at 11:00 A.M. Eastern. https://t.co/2eTaKsZVT4— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) April 4, 2020
I bet he had a tab open to a porn site while he was streaming the service...
The real surprise was Trump's post COVID-19 task force meeting presser. In a 'greatest hits' callback, regarding the antibiotic erythromycin, he once again asks, "What have you got to lose?"
Dr. Trump touts unproven and potentially dangerous drugs: "Erythromycin, which will kill certain things that you don't want living within your body. It's a powerful drug ... what do you have to lose?" pic.twitter.com/UDQovyhbGx— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 5, 2020
What have you got to lose with this medicine which doesn't affect viruses? Well, for one thing, your beneficial bacterial symbionts.
Trump, predictably, also touted the wonders of the poorly tested (for COVID-19) hydroxychloroquine:
Trump on why he's giving medical advice even though he's not a doctor: "What really do we have to lose? ... we don't have time to go and say, 'gee, let's take a couple of years and test it out' ... it doesn't kill people." (This last point re: hydroxychloroquine is not true.) pic.twitter.com/zE0aN4iSFW— Aaron Rupar (@atrupar) April 5, 2020
Then he tried to muzzle Dr Anthony Fauci, questioned about the effectiveness of hydroxychloroquine:

Yeah, this Palm Sunday is more like a Facepalm Sunday:
Can some enterprising reporter throw a shoe at Trump? I'd pony up for a defense fund. and unlike Trump, I'm not a liar.
