NY Mag Reporter Asks Incredibly Dumb, Incredibly Partisan Question

He was asked

“During these first 100 days,” he asked, “what has surprised you the most about this office? Enchanted you the most from serving in this office? Humbled you the most? And troubled you the most?”

“Are you ready to call yourself the ‘comeback kid’?”

“You definitely have some impressive accomplishments….And more than a lot of presidents who manage to get reelected. My question is, is it enough?”

Oh, wait, those are the kinds of questions asked of Obama, softball after softball

NY Mag’s Olivia Nuzzi Asks Trump if He Deserves Re-election After She Compares Vietnam Death Count to Coronavirus

A writer with the leftwing New York Magazine asked President Donald Trump at a coronavirus briefing at the White House on Monday if he deserves to be re-elected given the fact that more Americans have died from the virus than did in the Vietnam war.

According to the National Archives, 58,220 Americans died fighting in the Vietnam War. The number of deaths from coronavirus as of April 25 was 52,459, according to the Statista website. 

Olivia Nuzzi asked Trump, “If an American president loses more Americans over the course of six weeks than died in the entirety of the Vietnam War, does he deserve to be re-elected?”

“Yes we’ve lost a lot of people, but if you look at what original projections were — 2.2 million — we’re probably heading to 60,000, 70,000 — far too many — one person is too many for this,” Trump responded. 

“I think we’ve made a lot of really good decisions,” Trump said. “The big decision was closing the border or doing the ban.”

Nothing partisan or unhinged about that question, right? I don’t remember anyone asking Obama about the record number of people who dropped out of the jobs market out of frustration, do you? Or anything about doubling the debt, more than any president before him. Or why he allowed guns to get in the hands of gang members and jihadis who then used them to wound and kill kids and adults, and two U.S. federal agents. Or why he allowed the IRS to target conservative groups. And so much more.

As Erielle Davidson tweeted “Wow. What a terrible question. Does a president “deserve” reelection based on the number of deaths produced by a global pandemic? Our media is broken.”

It is a global pandemic. Will Nuzzi ask Cuomo and de Blasio the same question?

Trump gave a good answer, though, instead of battling her. Those original projections are what caused nations to panic, for cities around the world to panic, for U.S. states and counties to panic. Especially in light of what was happening in Italy. Might we have seen those millions without social distancing and lockdown? Who knows.

    Will Ms. Nuzzi explain how he “lost” these people? Did he not put them away when he was finished? Did they wander off the tour route when he wasn’t looking?

    More evidence that journalists are those who found “Comparative Basket Weaving” too tough a major.

    A day off and time to spend a few minutes posting at my dads request.

    The Coronavirus or SARS-COV-2 affects the ACE 2 receptor on your bodies cells. We initially thought this was going to produce ARDS or the acute respiratory infections and the need for ventilation. More on that in a moment.

    When people are admitted to the hospital we initially put them on Heparin therapy subQ. Which is a sodium based anti-coagulant. However even though we know that the blood vessels in the body have cells that line the walls and each of these cells have ACE-2 receptors. We did not realize how often the virus is found to be binding to the ACE-2 receptors of these blood vessels.

    This, we believe, is leading to an increased incidence of deadly strokes from people who are asymptomatic or have mild symptoms. We are finding the d-dimer or the clotting function of the blood elevates significantly over time with some patients in the hospital. These numbers will vary from .50 or so at day one when blood work is done up to 20.00 by day 21 or so in the hospital which is pretty high.

    When you see the d-dimer in blood work rising that almost always means you have some sort of coagulation occurring in the body. In these cases the d-dimer is rising even with the use of an anti-coagulant. Within the blood vessels themselves and below the surface of these Endothelium cells is something called the VWF. This is where the blood vessels create clotting and this too can be measured in the blood.

    When we measure the VWF in patients with clotting issues we find that the VWF factor at day 21 is on the order of magnitude of 500 plus percent higher than normal meaning the blood is creating blood clots. The use of a drug known as Unfractionated Heparin a fast acting blood thinner is then usually prescribed when these levels become dangerously high.

    Okay so what does all that mean. In short it means that many people with mild to moderate symptoms who do not develop respiratory distress may still be in severe danger of STROKE due to the SARS-COV-2 attaching itself to and neutralizing the protein within blood vessel walls and creating blood clotting within the body.

    As you may recall the police and first responders are being called to homes where people have died for no apparent reason and removed. Most of these are reported differently within each community but they may very well be SARS-COV-2 Related due to clotting. And they very well might not be. The problem is that we are performing few autopsies on these people during this time. So it is incumbent upon our First responders to be wearing PPE when they deal with these people.

    Those who present themselves as happy patients(Hypoxic and though confused as if they have high altitude sickness say they do not feel bad at all and sometimes within a day or a even a few hours become deceased) with high volumes of blood/oxygen are still at risk. They are not coughing, sometimes are not feverish but their bodies are collapsing due to a massive viral load of SARS-COV-2 that instead of attacking the ACE-2 in the lungs attack the ACE-2 in the blood vessels.

    Think of it as having really high blood pressure or high blood sugar. You often have no symptoms or signs anything is wrong and yet you are in danger of dying. This is what is presenting to us in the Hospitals.

    As front line doctors we are expecting ARDS and ventilation when instead we are finding the body is simply going heywire with a massive viral load that is infecting other ACE-2 receptors in the body while leaving the ACE-2 in the lungs relatively unaffected.

    Many report they had mild cough for a day or two and then became fine. Many are found dead in their homes later. There is still so much we do not understand about this drug but I can tell you that I believe a cure is a long way off and a vaccine that could be effective is an equally long way off.

    The world needs to prepare for millions of deaths as people need to eat and drink. To eat and drink the world needs to work. Life as we know it is over Friends. This is a personal opinion of someone who fights this thing in the trenches. I do not advocate for stay at home except for those at risk. I am not political and do not care who is president or in charge. Both parties are going to wish the other side was in charge in the coming months and years unless we can develop powerful vaccines and treatments.

    This is about as political as I can be. The world simply cannot stay inside for the next 1-2-3 years and flattening the curve only helps hospitals, it does not make this disease go away. Herd immunity which we are still not sure will actually work. Is this like the flu or a cold which gives us immunity for only short periods of time? So much we do not know. So much. I wished I could give you better answers but I cannot. I see something new everyday, and that is what frightens me in our battle to save people in the hospitals.

    I’m tired. Forgive any spelling mistakes. Thank you and good luck folks.

    Teach typed: Trump gave a good answer, though, instead of battling her.

    Surprisingly, BOTH trump and Teach are correct. It WAS a good answer. It was almost President Obama was answering! Someone in the trump campaign must have persuaded him not be such as ass. Let’s hope it lasts.

      Pfft, to the little middle-school mean girl “logic”.
      Like every other second-rate fame-hungry “journolist” out there, SHE became the story.
      Which is ultimately what she wanted.

    You mean like, “There’s — there’s no answer to it. He just says, ‘Well, I’m going to negotiate a better deal.’ Well, how — what — how exactly are you going to negotiate that? What magic wand do you have?”

    • Kye says:

      I remember when the smug Kenyan made that comment. I’ll tell ya what magic wand Trump has: business experience. That is something lacking from the phony resume of the Kenyan Liar. He would’t know how to negotiate because everything he’s gotten in life was handed to him by his patrons and benefactors in the communist party. Half black, half American, half mooslum and half assed. That sums up the Hussein.

      Trump 2020 Because he CAN negotiate.

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:


        You mean ‘uppity’ Kenyan, don’t you? You think President Obama’s resume was faked? You think he was born in Kenya? You think he’s Muslim? You’re a covidiot.

        Much, if not most, of what Connies believe to the truth, is actually false.

        trump’s so-called business experience, LOL? His daddy gave him a $413 million grubstake. He bankrupted either 4 or 6 companies. He bankrupted fooking casinos!!
        trump calls himself the King of Debt, risking other people’s money, skimming any profit while reneging on the debts. How’s his business ‘acumen’ helped America? 20% unemployment, trade wars, depression, mountainous debt (He is The King!).

          Ans, no, you are.

          Much, if not most, of what Connies believe to the truth, is actually false.

          Which is why we go on facts, not belief, the way you clowns do.

          trump’s so-called business experience, LOL? His daddy gave him a $413 million grubstake. He bankrupted either 4 or 6 companies. He bankrupted fooking casinos!!

          First, that does not negate the fact he’s a billionaire.

          And bankrupt casinos were part of the biz once states started allowing casino gambling.

          trump calls himself the King of Debt, risking other people’s money, skimming any profit while reneging on the debts. How’s his business ‘acumen’ helped America? 20% unemployment, trade wars, depression, mountainous debt (He is The King!).

          No, the Lefties crashed the markets as part of their Oriental Lung Rash panic.

          He’s brought back 600,000 manufacturing jobs the Kenyan said would require a magic wand and nobody had indebted the country the way Zippy has.

          Your desperation is showing. The Demos either go with Gropin’ Joe, whose senility is more apparent by the day, or they have to do the smoke-filled room thing and once again show they don’t care what the people want.

          I leave here in the morning and 50 center is busy typing away.

          I come back hours later and 50 center is busy saying the same things.

          Every day he has a theme. If you watch him close enough you can pair it with MSNBC from last night.

          Sad. He is unable to think for himself just spewing post after post after post and I have no doubt it is more than just this website he posts to get his 50 cents per post from CHINA HEROICS PEOPLE”S ARMY.

          • Kye says:

            Klem has Elwood pegged. I too noticed his talking points are usually exactly what venom was spewed on last nights MSNBC or CNN. Why, it’s almost like he and the rest of the triggered are reading from the same script.

            And thank you Elwood. I knew calling the half breed a Kenyan would set off your triggering mechanism. How’d I just do with “half breed”?

            Triggered again I hope!

            Trump 2020 cause I just love seeing leftists triggered.

  5. formwiz says:

    And, speaking of desperation, The Hildabeast actually goes there.

    On the “town hall” where she endorses Gropin’ Joe (and he falls asleep in the middle of it), she actually says, “This would be a terrible crisis to waste”.

    No wonder little Jeffery is getting pissy.

    Trump comes out the winner, and the hero, in the Peking Pulmonary Pox mess, while all the Demos look like petty dictators.

  6. KlemDadidlehopper says:

    The presidential race has tightened.
    Joe Biden’s recent nine-point edge over Donald Trump has evaporated.

    According to a new Fox News Poll of registered voters, the incumbent president and presumed Democratic nominee now tie with 42 percent support apiece.
    Some 16 percent would vote for a third-party candidate or are undecided. Trump’s 42 percent support is, by a narrow margin, his highest ever against Biden, while Biden’s mark is his lowest by far.

    That 16 percent I can guarantee you is about 10 percent Bernie Bros and 6 percent indies.

    The Progressive wing is furious with the DNC. AGAIN. AOC has abandoned Bernie, while Bernies main staffers are like…seriously?

    Then there is HRC, the queen of Victim SMASHING telling us that she believes Biden while the victim should be believed.

    LOLOLOLOLOL….Its a hellava day at Sea Sir!!!

    • Kye says:

      I’m sure I don’t need to point out that any “numbers” released by the Fake News Media are themselves fake. They had the Drunkin’ Hillary up 16 points over Trump until 10 days after he’d already won. Remember he “I should be 50 points ahead” rant? With all the cheating, numbers cooking and illegal use of Deep State operatives she still couldn’t believe she was only 10 points ahead of Trump……which she wasn’t. they live in a bubble where their spurious dreams and desires resonate off each other never realizing nobody else cares.

      Their “numbers” are about as reliable as their “models” and we know they are all full of shit.

      Trump 2020 Keep Elwood triggered. He amuses me.
