It never ceases to amaze how Donald Trump has no problems whatsoever trashing the members of his own administration. Where it becomes ridiculous, and where Trump loses credibility — not that there’s any to lose at this point —  is that he appoints people to posts and then reduces them to rubble. Robert Redfield is the latest in this pattern of character assassination carnage. Trump appointed Redfield to head CDC in May, 2018. Today, he said that Redfield was “confused” about mask wearing and when it came to a COVID-19 vaccine, he doesn’t know what he’s talking about. So Trump knows more than the experts. Again.

Now here’s Trump shooting down not only Redfield but the collective wisdom of the entire medical community.

Now as to vaccine, Redfield said Wednesday that there would not be one “generally available” until spring or early summer, 2021. Trump told reporters that Redfield was wrong. Again, he “didn’t understand the questions.” That is Trump speak for, “he didn’t say what I wanted him to say. Since I can’t ever look bad, I have to make him look bad.”

Trump simply will not give up this narrative that a vaccine is right around the corner and we mean in a couple of weeks.  Mark Meadows went on record today, saying it could happen“by the end of September.”

And Trump needs it to happen that soon, so that he can win the election and testimony to the contrary by his CDC director before a senate subcommittee be damned. If Trump needs it, wants it, hey, somehow it will manifest, reality be damned.

This is vintage Trump and it’s not going to get any better in the next 47 days, only crazier. We don’t know if the Trump era will end with a bang or a whimper, we just know it’s going to be nuts.

Which may have been the REAL motivation behind the ridiculous pushback on Redfield.

He needs to be brought up on charges for this irresponsible behavior. You know this influencing his followers, like the ones that ingest bleach and refuse to wear masks.

I’d trust Redfield on this long before I’d trust Himself on *anything*.

My dad used to say, “People argue about whether the world will end with a bang or a whimper. It’s gonna be both. It’ll go BANG! ooohh….”

The ‘world’ will be fine. We, as the last hominid species, will be gone. The world survived just fine as over 20 hominid species have already disappeared. Our modern idols include our arrogance & our ignorance. If rump wins, no stopping climate change, we reach the tipping point of no return, planet continues overheating, we become another Venus. It’s that phucking simple.

When we’re gone, the main driver of warming will be gone.

Anyone taking a bet that he will, with great fanfare, anno8unce some time late Seprtember/early November that there has been a breakthrough on a vaccine. He will, natch, order immediate production once he’s back on Pennsylvania Avenue because there won’t be enough to distribute for some time

He’s claiming there will be 100,000 doses by the end of October. No one else believes that.
