Trump Daily – 7/28/2020 – Demon Semen

  • Last night the president retweeted roughly a dozen people touting the benefits of Hydroxychloroquine in treating/curing Covid-19. Several of these involved a video from a group of doctors pushing the drug. You may recognize Dr. Dan Erickson from a different viral video in April which was labeled as false on Facebook. Erickson claimed there was no reason for anyone who wasn’t sick to quarantine and used INCREDIBLY bad math to justify is false claims about the virus. But no one is talking about Dr. Erickson’s part in this new video thanks to Dr. Stella Immanuel who runs a “deliverance ministry” in addition to her medical clinic. (A deliverance ministry focuses on exorcising demons and other evil spirits from people and locations.) Dr. Immanuel claims she has had a 100% success rate with hydroxychloroquine and hasn’t lost a patient. Notably, Dr. Immanuel works at a walk-in clinic which means it’s unlikely she’s seen anyone who was dangerously ill with Covid-19. But it’s her other beliefs which are causing the current attention. Dr. Immanuel believes that diseases are caused by demons and that vaccines are assembled using alien DNA which prevents people from being religious when administered. (She claims the government is run by lizard people and other aliens, but it wasn’t clear if she thinks vaccines are made with the DNA of our reptilian overlords or if said reptilian overlords are using third-party alien DNA.) Dr. Immanuel believes the unique medical issues women face are caused by having sex with demons in their dreams as their semen causes things like endometriosis. I did not make that up. Sometimes though the demons are just witches who are astrally projecting and pretending to be demons. I wasn’t clear on whether an astrally projecting witch masquerading as a demon in a dream can ejaculate, much less if said faux-demon dream witch ejaculate can cause endometriosis. If you’re interested in such things, her ministry website should be back up again soon. Dr. Immanuel confirmed all of these beliefs herself tonight. To bring this back to our topic, THIS IS A PERSON THE PRESIDENT WAS TOUTING AS AN EXPERT ON COVID-19. As the United States closes in on 150,000 deaths, Donald Trump is still pushing conspiracy theories from crackpots and miracle cures while attacking the most experienced infectious disease expert on the entire planet. In today’s press conference, Trump was asked about these beliefs. He initially defended Dr. Immanuel, but when asked a followup about her alien DNA beliefs, he immediately ended the presser without answering. Twitter briefly cut off Donald Trump Jr’s access over this misinformation and deleted the Tweets the president was making about it. Surprisingly he hasn’t mentioned this today after saying this weekend it was “illegal” for Twitter to have trending topics related to negative news about him. Yes, the president thinks the law should force a social media sight from highlighting bad news about him.

(I am intentionally skipping covering Bill Barr’s testimony today as I found it useless)

  • In an interview with Sean Hannity, Trump once again accused Biden, Obama, James Comey, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, Lisa Page, and John Brennan of TREASON for “spying” on his campaign. No one spied on the Trump campaign. His campaign was investigated which is exactly what he wants done to Joe Biden. The president accusing his predecessor of treason would normally be a massive news story, but it will barely be mentioned since the president is Donald Trump. Also in this interview the president mentioned how we are keeping the oil from countries we invade in the Middle East. This is explicitly a war crime which would violate multiple international treaties, include the Geneva Convention. Luckily, the president is lying. Despite being a war crime, the president has been advocating taking oil from invaded countries for at least five years. They also discussed the benefits of Hydroxychloroquine in treating Covid-19 despite the complete lack of evidence this works. Trump once again mentioned how well the border wall has been at stopping Mexicans from bringing the coronavirus into the United States. Mexico has done better than the US in containing the virus and at least one Mexican border state has banned Americans from entering because of the virus. Trump mentioned Portland mayor Ted Wheeler “getting the hell knocked out of him” as Wheeler was attacked by federal agents last night while meeting with protesters. The president got his name wrong. (Not providing a link here as I took my own notes)
  • I meant to mention this in the last update, but the president was asked about the arrest of his friend Ghislaine Maxwell who was instrumental in setting up Jeffrey Epstein’s sex trafficking ring which enabled the rape of dozens of girls. The president said he wished her well.
  • Trump promoted an article about how Biden is going to destroy the suburbs. One of the explicit examples given in the article is that more minorities will be able to move to them. A reminder that Trump was twice caught by the government refusing to rent properties to black tenants. The article is addressed to suburban women. Trump changed that to “suburban housewives” which is in line with his previously stated view that “putting a wife to work is a very dangerous thing.” (Yes, that is an exact quote.)
  • CDC had prepared a set of guidelines regarding reopening schools. The president, who has no scientific background whatsoever, felt they were too restrictive and said they needed to be relaxed. The CDC obliged. New guidelines have been issued with a focus that’s nearly entirely on reopening schools with next to no detail on how that should be done. In several areas where guidance would be helpful, the CDC simply suggests that schools make their own plans – what to do about an infection, who should be quarantined, physical distances, etc… Of note, the federal government is currently saying local authorities cannot handle graffiti and a federal response is required while simultaneously saying that schools should deal with a nationwide pandemic on their own. All of this comes on the day the president announced there will be no in-person GOP convention this year as it’s too dangerous. It is too dangerous for Republican delegates to meet for a weekend, but it isn’t too dangerous to push teachers to go back to work for months.

  • Trump’s interview with Mike Wallace aired yesterday. Trump again bragged about doing well on the Montreal Cognitive Assessment which literally asks you to identify three animals. Trump insisted the questions got “very hard.” Wallace pointed out one of these “very hard” questions was to count backwards from 100 by 7s which he began to do. The president lied about the US having the lowest Covid-19 mortality rate in the world and was angered when Wallace pointed out this was not true. Trump also lied saying Biden wants to defund police which Biden has explicitly said he does not support. Trump asked for the text of a pact Biden made with Bernie Sanders saying it spoke about defunding police. Trump could not find that passage because it does not exist. The president again said that we would have fewer Covid-19 cases if we tested fewer people. He said “everybody” thought the summer heat would make the virus go away. No medical experts said this. The person who did was Donald Trump. When asked about the disproportionate rate black men are killed by police as compared to white men, Trump pointed out that many white men are killed by police too. He said religion will be “gone” if Biden is elected president. Biden is a lifelong devout Catholic. The president was asked about his attempts to have the courts throw out the entire Affordable Care Act which will immediately throw tens of millions of people off of their insurance plans. Trump said he will replace it with something which will protect pre-existing conditions and he will enact this replacement via executive order within the next two weeks because the Supreme Court’s DACA decision means he can enact anything via executive order as long as he follows the proper process. None of this is true. Every part was a lie. He does not have that authority, he does not have a plan, and the Republicans are trying to take away health insurance from millions of Americans during the worst pandemic in a century.
