Health care officials’ plea for Trump to share vital COVID-19 info with Biden team to save “countless lives.” Sorry, busy tweeting..

President Donald Trump goes to his bunker, his twitter account. He crows about the election, I won, damn it, I won.

Trump keeps tooting his unmusical tunes. Now 250,000 Americans have died because of COVID-19, which is ravaging the country. President Elect Joe Biden’s transition team is trying to coordinate with the White House to begin getting a handle on this virus. He’s being shut out.

Trump stays out of sight unless on the golf course. His team is shying away from being responsible, from officials of the Department of Health and Human Services to the General Services Administration.

Concerned health advocates are asking the Trump Administration to share “all critical COVID-19 information” with Biden’s transition team, which it has refused to do. Typically whiny kindergartners, some of the Trump bunch. Give me my candy, give me my candy.

A letter from the American Medical Association (AMA), American Hospital Association (AHA) and American Nurses Association (ANA) expresses “fears about the rising number of COVID-19 cases, hospitalizations and deaths that will increase greatly through the holiday season.”

“Confronting the challenges of the pandemic is imperative to saving American lives,” they wrote to the Trump administration. “Real time data and information on the supply of therapeutics, testing supplies, personal protective equipment, ventilators, hospital bed capacity and workforce availability to plan for further deployment of the nation’s assets needs to be shared to save countless lives.”

Haunting chants before Thanksgiving, a day of sharing and giving.

Our country was built on that premise. In 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national Thanksgiving holiday in the midst of a terrible Civil War.

Again, we are at war, against the virus. Sorry, the president is busy tweeting. — Joe Cantlupe, Health Data Buzz

Unmasked Man Hiding in ‘The People’s House’

The White House is also known as the “People’s House,” – us, the U.S., Americans. We vote the presidents in, and then we vote them out.

We voted Trump out. He’s dilly-dallying. It’s been days now, and he can’t get around to saying he lost. It’s just not in him. He can’t do it. The longer it takes, I would think the harder it would be. He’s in some hole. It’s like when Clarence Thomas didn’t say anything year after year on the Supreme Court. At what point, what’s that key moment where you jump in, and say, “Hey, I’m here.” It’s almost like the kid in geography class who sat in the back, ducked being called on, never raised his hand, and then suddenly emerges and says, “I know the capital of Alaska! You know?!!!!”

Remember Trump wore a mask sometimes after he came down with COVID-19. It didn’t seem he liked it much. He often went to events over these last nine months not only not wearing a mask, but mocking the idea of having to cover one’s face with one.

The thing is, there are people who respect leaders like the President and follow his example, no matter how wrong it is. Too many people don’t wear masks when they are close to other people, and that fosters the spread of COVID-19.

More than 242,000 people have died in the U.S., and there are more than 10 million cases. Today, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention predict there will be 260,000 to 282,000 coronavirus deaths by Dec. 5.

Tonight, I got this message from “Trump, Pence Make America Great Again!”

“Joseph, As I have long said, the success of a coronavirus vaccine would only be announced after the Election.”

“Pfizer and the others probably didn’t have the courage to to make this HISTORIC announcement before Nov 3rd, because they hoped it would keep me from WINNING BIG.”

“The truth is if Joe Biden were president, you wouldn’t have the vaccine for another four years….”””……….

lalalalalalalaalalalaal and on and on.. garbage.

President -Elect Biden is starting to put a team together to deal with COVID-19 as a top priority. Trump is having trouble getting out of the people’s basement.

Trump can help save people. He can’t save face by winning another term. But he can save people. Tell people to cover their faces with masks.

“People, wear a mask,” he can say. — Joe Cantlupe, Health Data Buzz

Say it’s so Joe: Biden thumps Trump

Joe Biden can go home again. Born in Pennsylvania, the state lifted him to victory.

For a long time Donald Trump derided Biden, the former vice-president, as “Sleepy Joe.” Trump has made his presidency a litany of awful, terrible comments about people. Sleepy Joe is one of the least harsh.

Today the man Trump described as Sleepy Joe gave him a rude wakeup call.

Biden became the 46th President, winning the White House and making Trump the first one-term president in more than 25 years.

And it’s also made Trump what he really hates:

A loser. — Joe Cantlupe, Health Data Buzz

Trump: Hazardous To Our Health

In a few days from now, maybe it just won’t seem to matter. He may be considered a lame duck on the public dole.

Or not.

The head-spinning, out of bounds presidency of Donald Trump, the babbling pseudo-tycoon with the laser lies, may come to a near halt.

Or not.

I keep thinking about a few weeks ago as Trump stood outside the White House, taking off his mask, chillingly looking like a dictator as he stared down the cameras, then smiled, and waved. He was just released from the hospital after being treated for three days because of the coronavirus. The disease that is wracking the country and the world meandered through the bloated body of the leader of the free world.

After Trump was cleared to go out on the campaign trail, I had this tiny bit of hope that Trump may have had some thoughts about consequences and ramifications of that disease, and it would slow down or reduce his lying and replace it with humility. Of course not. That did not happen. He is still the manic mauler of facts, the ultimate spinmeister. It’s scary to think of him in the White House for four more years. One of our very worst presidents. Tear up the history books. Put Warren G. Harding aside.

Trump got COVID, is on the mend. Yet he continues to deny science, and the pandemic itself, lashes out at doctors. No hint of any kindness in his body, no remorse for failing to properly lead, for misstating the facts, or saying, “Hey, everyone should have worn masks a long time ago.”

Remember Trump was impeached? It seemed eons ago, no? For enlisting the assistance of Ukraine in his past campaign. It seems like an asterisk.

Yet Trump’s dismissive actions about the coronavirus probably cost tens of thousands of lives, and for that alone, he should be removed from office. Everyone with pre-existing conditions, seriously, can you believe this guy will help you? There will never be a TrumpCare. There is a Trump-Doesn’t-Care. Except for himself.

Donald Trump is like a burning cigarette, hazardous to our health.

Do we take one more drag on this filthy, odorous presidency, or stomp it out? – Joe Cantlupe, Health Data Buzz
