Don Trump Jr calls doctors & public health experts ‘morons’ on Fox News

Either today or tomorrow, the United States will reach another horrific marker in the pandemic: we will have lost 230,000 Americans from the coronavirus, with 9 million Americans testing positive for the virus at some point this year. On Thursday, more than 1000 Americans died from the virus. So it was clear what Don Trump Jr. needed to do – he needed to do on Laura Ingraham’s Fox News show and call doctors and public health experts “morons.”

Poor Don. Maybe cocaine will fill the emptiness in his soul. Meanwhile, I wanted to highlight some sh-t Dr. Fauci has been saying this week:

As Covid-19 cases continue to jump during the fall surge, Dr. Anthony Fauci says there’s little chance of normalcy on the horizon. The US will have a vaccine in the next few months, but there’s a chance a “substantial proportion of the people” won’t be vaccinated until the second or third quarter of 2021, Fauci said.

The director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases reiterated caution on the nation’s outlook.

“I think it will be easily by the end of 2021, and perhaps even into the next year, before we start having some semblances of normality,” Fauci said during a University of Melbourne panel discussion Tuesday.

Things aren’t looking too good for the US as the winter approaches, he said Wednesday. Twenty-nine states set new records this month for the most new daily cases since the pandemic began, according to data from Johns Hopkins University.

“We’re not in a good place,” Fauci during a virtual Q&A session on Wednesday. “Now we’re averaging about 70,000 a (day). That’s a bad position to be in.”

Fauci has been saying this for a while now, that we need to stop thinking about the moment we get a working vaccine as the moment when everything changes. Even when we get a good vaccine, it will take more than a year to produce enough vaccines and convince people to take it and on and on. We’re going to be mask-wearing and social-distancing well into the summer and fall of 2021.

    And we need to be at least thinking about the longterm affects for those recovered from the virus. People could have lasting chronic health issues.

    • anniefannie says:

      THANK YOU! I contracted Covid in Feb and have been suffering long term symptoms since then. I will go several months and think I’ve turned the corner and Boom! Major chest pain, fatigue, no sense of taste, I could go on and on. The truly frightening thing was a lot of the info about the virus lagged behind my symptoms so I didn’t know what was going on.
      It will take years before we know the long term ramifications, but thankfully we have these idiots at the helm to offer solace 🙄

      • HoofRat says:

        I’m so sorry you’re experiencing this, anniefannie! It makes me doubly furious at people who do not take public health guidelines seriously, as we know so much more now about the long-term effects of this disease.

      • Andrew’s Nemesis says:

        I’m so sorry you’re going through Long C, Annie. My dose of Covid back in March triggered my M.E., and I’d been in remission for five years. It’s frightening to be THIS tired. The strange symptoms are something else – earlier, when I was making dinner for my family, my vision went: only for a minute, but it’s horrifying. I’m rooting for you to return to full health and for the memory of it to fade.

      • Itsme says:

        I’m so sorry to hear that. Please stay strong. Know that there are many who wish you a well and long life. 🙏🏻😊

        @andrewsnemisis please go check out the vision thing!!!
        We are having a lot of patients with similar due to micro clots from covid
        Some are then having strokes

    • Juliette says:

      Agreed. My cousin had it months ago. She’s recovered almost but even now every now and then she says when she takes a breath, it feels like breathing though wet cardboard. She’s a NICU nurse and is young and healthy and this took her out for months. She did all the right things yet she and her husband still caught it.

      Prayers to all suffering from this, it’s not joke.

      • anniefannie says:

        Sincere thanks Juliette and hoofrat!
        Honestly, I feel like one of the lucky ones because I had minimal respiratory issues so I wasn’t as concerned about my mortality. If this administrations bungling of this crisis is their downfall for me (ONLY) personally it will have been worth it

      • Nina Simone says:

        My cousin also had it and all her hair fell out. She has to resort to wearing a wig now. No telling of her hair will grow back. It’s Such terrifying Virus, particularly with how it’s symptoms are unpredictable. I don’t know how people are still so willy nilly about it.

    • Andrea says:

      Agreed! I have two high school classmates now both 39 with long term side effects. One got it end of March and now is on heart medication for heart failure and was told one of the medications she will be on the rest of her life. She was a healthy active 30 something before that who regularly ran. The other had covid end of December, they have officially determined it months ago through antibody testing of her parents and teen daughters who also had it. She will be on oxygen 24/7 for the rest of her life, at 39! These long term side effects are not discussed enough.

      The first one who is a nurse said that people are coming in with blood clots 4-5 months after they have recovered.

    Junior really needs an intervention. He spends 18 hours a day tweeting wild conspiracy theories about Hunter Biden and attacks on the news media for not covering those conspiracy theories. He doesn’t work and seems to have no contact with his five kids. He looks like personal hygiene isn’t high on his to do list. He’s a mess in a downward spiral and he’s going to crash hard.

  3. Enis says:

    Meanwhile, public health workers are getting death threats because of this absolute bullcrap.

    • Esmom says:

      Yes. What Trump and the deplorable have done to politicize the virus is criminal. The sh^t on the parent FB page for one of my college kids is insane — MAGAs demanding that the university “re-open” (it’s not closed but boo hoo, no big parties are allowed) because Trump “ended” the pandemic, etc. One lady posted she was tired of the politics and just wanted factual information out there — and proceeded to post a Fox news clip of some shady doctor, the one who was hyping hydroxycloriquine months back!

      I feel we will never be the same again, thanks to so many idiots who refuse to listen to real experts and who are too selfish to think of anyone but themselves.

  4. (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

    This vile little pisher, who’s always higher than a kite, thinks he knows ANYTHING?? “Oh, oh, it’s almost nothing!” GMAFB. Today Show just announced more than 90 THOUSAND have tested positive overnight; just under 1000 people A DAY are dying, and long-haulers are living with compromised health.

    Brianna Keiler on CNN said yesterday (of McSally being interviewed on Ingraham’s show) that she (McSally) was “…basking in the radioactivity that is Laura Ingraham…”. And there is Jr. in the fallout, too.

    I hope his corrupt, greedy, grifting, lying, evil, daddy-issues a$$ lands him in jail for a VERY long time!!!

  5. MaryContrary says:

    There is something truly wrong with Laura Ingraham. For someone who professes to be Catholic and “pro life”, she appears fine with being completely immoral and blatantly pushing lies.

    • Esmom says:

      I don’t get it, either. Her sneering face is appalling, too. She just oozes contempt.

    • Betsy says:

      What else do you expect from a Nazi? And I use that term because what else do you call someone who threw a seig heil on a national platform in 2016? She’s a Blonde Beast.

  6. Suz says:

    I am so f**king tired of this horrific family. Go away.

  7. Kimber says:

    He’s so clearly coked out that I’m embarrassed for him. He’s wild because he knows his family- the whole tribe- is going down and all finally open to charges. He needs rehab- stat

  8. Bevvie says:

    Wish he would put some Clorox in that cup and drink it up.

  9. Mika says:

    Don Jr. always looks like he’s spent the morning throwing up.

    And if I had to wake up as Don Jr. everyday, I would too.

  10. Darla says:

    They’re murderers. I had a horrifying conversation with my 22 yo niece yesterday. I forced her to wear a mask in the car with me. She told me they don’t do anything, and I am living in a bubble, and all this utter nonsense. Then she told me doctors don’t know what they’re talking about. She doesn’t believe doctors. This is where she’s getting it from, because my brother is beyond MAGA he’s a total trump cultist and he only has on FOX, and I think OANN too. I think he’s gone beyond FOX actually. Dont’ think it didn’t break my heart that my niece, who I gave everything to, is a mindless follower of her father. It did at one time, but I am over it now. Very over it.

    • H says:

      I’m so sorry, Darla. I’ve cut off family and friends until after the election. I’m muting them on social media. I’m hoping if Biden wins, the deprogramming can begin. If not, I’m done with them, sad to say.

    • Kathgal says:

      Darla, we are also in that boat, and it is very very sad. It keeps me up at night, worrying for my niece and nephew. So heartbreaking.

  11. jferber says:

    That face! THat’s right, you little worm. Science is wrong and daddy is right. You fucking moron.

  12. Linda says:

    Do the Trumps use special, skinny forks to get food in the tiny hole they call a mouth?

  13. jferber says:

    Linda, you’re absolutely right about their freakishly small mouths (and hands).

  14. My3cents says:

    Yeah doctors and scientists saved your f****g fathers life so F-k you. Sometimes I wish science was like religion and only worked for believers.

    • Teebee says:

      How quickly they have forgotten. The ingratitude, the hypocrisy, the selfishness and arrogance all in the name of winning an election for a man that doesn’t even want the job anymore.

  15. Marigold says:

    Is he dumb or dumber? I can never remember.

  16. Andrew’s Nemesis says:

    Don’s going to need those ‘morons’ when he overdoes the coke and his heart goes into the red zone. I just hope, that when Biden gets in with a landslide on Tuesday, all the little Trumpets are arrested and prosecuted for their many egregious sins.

  17. Duchess of Corolla says:

    I can’t stand any of these idiots. Four years of this crap!!! I hope with every fiber of my being that America has the good sense to vote him out and lock him up…and more importantly that voters will actually be heard! tRump is a lying piece of scum who will stop at nothing, including trying to suppress our votes!

  18. shanaynay says:

    Just remember that Donnie if you ever need medical assistance, the people who will now save your life are the same people you called morons. Egotistical a-hole!!!!!
