Fact checkers were busy fact checking the Liar-in-Chief because, well, he's a big, fat, stinking liar. His race-baiting lie -- on a night when four people were taken hostage at Congregation Beth Israel in Texas -- that the "left is now rationing lifesaving therapeutics based on race, discriminating against and denigrating, just denigrating, white people to determine who lives and who dies. If you’re white, you don’t get the vaccine, or if you’re white, you don’t get therapeutics" was easily proven false. False. There is no evidence that white Americans are being denied access to vaccines or treatments.Mr. Trump referred to a Wall Street Journal opinion column criticizing New York State’s guidelines on two limited antiviral treatments that ask health providers to prioritize the therapies for immunocompromised patients and those with risk factors.Trump, playing the race card, inciting violence through racial anger and hate because, well, it's his thing. He also lied by claiming Nancy Pelosi and the Capitol Police rejected the more than 10,000 National Guard troops or soldiers that he authorized.Nope, there's absolutely no evidence Trump ever made a request for 10,000 National Guard troops or that Speaker Nancy Pelosi rejected such a demand. Trump lied when he claimed there were tens of thousands of fraudulent votes in Arizona. Even his Cyber Ninjas’ audit showed that in Maricopa County, which includes Phoenix, Biden actually gained votes in the recount, with 99 additional votes, and Trump had 261 fewer votes.Trump rallies... a moron lying to the even more moronic.https://www.nytimes.com/2022/01/16/us/politics/fact-check-tr...
On the TV news just now: White patients have been more likely to receive monoclonal antibody treatments than have patients of color. These treatments haven't been very widely used, but were given to 4% of White patients, 2.8% of Black patients, and even fewer Hispanic and Asian-American patients. But guess which patients tend to become sickest....
I was beginning to wonder if anyone would mention Beth Israel. I observed Martin Luther King Day by driving a few minutes to take them a potted orchid and a note of encouragement. An attack on anyone for their beliefs is an attack on all of us. It is only three miles from my house. Sadly, they have a heavy steel security gate like the kind you would see at a military installation. A police car blocks access. There are still some type of law enforcement working the investigation and a few cameras set up across the street.-Wes
