It's very sad to read that four of the deadliest days in American history occurred only last week, cumulatively exceeding any death toll we have ever witnessed as a country in such a short span. One day totals are pushing the deadliest days of the Civil War and have already exceeded the casualties at Pearl Harbor.worse.
Dr. Scott Gottlieb, former commissioner of the Food and Drug Administration, told CBS News' "Face the Nation" on Sunday that we could see nearly 4,000 deaths a day."As bad as things are right now, they're going to get a lot worse," Gottlieb said. "I think by the end of the year we'll be at about 300,000 deaths and by the end of January we could be pushing 400,000 deaths.""We're going to see consistently probably 2,000 deaths per day and as we get into January toward the peak, we're going to see over 3,000 deaths per day unfortunately, and maybe get close to 4,000 deaths per day," he continued. "So this is going to get a lot worse before it starts to resolve."
And yet the administration seems to be so blasé about the whole affair. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo still hosts huge and lavish State Department Holiday parties where attendees go largely maskless and are seemingly ignorant of social distancing protocol.
There seems to be such a disconnect at the human suffering caused by this microbe in the Trump Administration and it is quite odd when you consider just how many people in the Trump inner circle, cabinet and administration have come down with Covid 19, including the President and his family.
Of course, if you are a Trump or a Rudy Giuliani, or anybody else high up enough in the autocratic orbit, you are treated with a very special drug regimen, a monoclonal antibody developed by Eli Lilly and a cocktail of two monoclonal antibodies developed by Regeneron that we mere mortals would never dream of getting. Rudy doesn't think covid is even a very big deal at this point.
Doesn't seem quite fair that we the people die and our overlords skate but I guess life is not really fair, is it?
