He's Going Full-On Jonestown

Today's atrocity is Vulgarmort's assertion that he is taking a medication which a guy in his condition really shouldn't be taking:

I don't believe that he's telling the truth, primarily because he's a serial prevaricator. The real 'tell' though, is his anecdote about a doctor in my home county who hasn't lost a single patient that he's treating for COVID-19:

A one-hundred percent success rate strains credulity. I suspect that Trump's 'Westchester Doctor' is actually Dr. Vladimir Zelenko, the psycho from across the Hudson who made a similar claim back in March. As for Trump's motive, I think it's mainly desperation, seasoned with 'magical thinking'... he needs a cure, or his goose is cooked, and HCQ is the one item in the pharmacopeia that he's clinging to. Dad isn't around to save his bacon, so he needs the miracle he's been hoping for since February.

I've gotten to the point where I'm just past caring. If Trump's supporters, many of whom have co-morbidities, want to pop hydroxychloroquine tablets at the behest of their Dear Leader, they should go for it. The MAGA cult looks to be entering the Jonestown stage, all we need is for a Trump-branded sugary drink to wash the tablets down with. I doubt he's taking it himself, but if he's pushing it, it's the second most dangerous drug he's selling, the first of which is hate.

I'm just surprised, since he's so cowardly, that he would take something with such bad known side effects, and which literally can make you more likely to die if you do get COVID-19.

On the other hand, if it hastens his departure from the public view, then I hope he's taking fistfuls of the damn stuff. Idiot.

How are the killdeer chicks doing?

Classic narcissism symptom; he grabbed onto the hydroxywhatever, suffered narcissistic injury when it was shown to be worse than ineffective, and is now doubling down that it IS TOO effective. Narcissists can not tolerate being proved wrong, and they will warp reality to make it fit their requirements.

Though he's not really taking it, he's just saying he is for the benefit of his base; he does have a subhuman instinct for survival. If Possum Holler residents take it and die, it's no biggie for our mango moron, and hey, what have you got to lose? Other than your life in service of his Titanic ego.

While Occam's Razor is not an infallible law of physics, it would suggest that Benedict Donald is lying about taking the HCQ.
