Worst Quote of the Week – August 1, 2020

“Hello, you don’t need a mask. There is a cure.”

Stella Immanuel, a Houston-based primary care physician and minister who, in a recent video, declared that the COVID-19 coronavirus can be easily cured.

The video was retweeted by – who else – Donald Trump, which Twitter promptly removed.  Immanuel has already joined the President in touting hydroxychloroquine as a cure for COVID-19, but also has a history of making particularly outlandish statements — including that the uterine disorder endometriosis is caused by sex with demons that takes place in dreams.

For the curious: incubus.

Instagram Moment of the Week – July 25, 2020

In a video uploaded by Jordan Gipson, a delivery driver with Black Postmates in Los Angeles, a combative and maskless woman refuses to allow Gipson into the building.  Eventually the resident who ordered the food arrives (wearing a mask) to get their food.

Video of the Week – July 18, 2020

A school principal shared some thoughts with Betsy Devos, U.S. Secretary of Education, in a video shared by Bored Teachers.  The 2-minute video synopsizes the heroic efforts that teachers took on when the pandemic hit and how Devos needs to “sit down somewhere” and just listen.  In fact, that’s the best advice we can give to any political figure – especially those like Devos and others in the Trump Administration who sit in their gilded cages in the ivory towers of wealth and privilege; far removed from the chaos and drama of REAL lives.

Teachers like this gentleman stand at the front lines in the brutal world of education and are now faced with the very real threat of illness and death, as the Trump gang threatens to pull education funding from states that don’t open their schools next month for the start of the new academic year.

Best Quote of the Week – July 18, 2020

“In the midst of a global pandemic, states were forced to play some sort of sick ‘Hunger Games’ game show to save the lives of our people.  Let me be clear: This is not a reality TV show. These are real things that are happening in the United States of America in 2020.”

– Gov. J.B. Pritzker (D-IL), condemning how states have been forced to compete for vital resources amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.

Worst Quote of the Week – July 4, 2020

“Fauci said that he’s concerned about states like Texas that skipped over certain things.  He doesn’t know what he’s talking about.  We haven’t skipped over anything.”

Dan Patrick, Texas Lte. Governor, responding to Dr. Anthony Fauci’s testimony before a Senate committee about the U.S. response to the coronavirus outbreak.

Patrick went on to say, “The only thing I’m skipping over is listening to him.  He has been wrong every time, on every issue.  I don’t need his advice anymore.  We’ll listen to a lot of science, we’ll listen to a lot of doctors, and [Gov. Greg Abbott (R)], myself and other state leaders will make the decision.  No thank you, Dr. Fauci.”

As we often say in Texas, ‘Bless his heart.’  Translation: ‘Dumb ass!’  It’s simply impossible to protect stupid people from themselves.  To non-Texans, please don’t consider Patrick typical of everyone here in the Lone Star state; the vast majority of us are considerably more intelligent than the moronic clowns who finagle their way into leadership positions.
