Trump and Friends Got Coronavirus Care Many Others Couldn't

Rudolph W. Giuliani became the latest in President Trump’s inner circle to boast about the treatment he received for Covid-19, as hospitals across the country ration care. Ben Carson, Chris Christie and Donald J. Trump are not the sturdiest candidates to conquer the coronavirus: older, in some cases overweight, male and not particularly fit. Yet all seem to have gotten through Covid-19, and all have gotten an antibody treatment in such short supply that some hospitals and states are doling it out by lottery.

Now Rudolph W. Giuliani, the latest member of President Trump’s inner circle to contract Covid-19, has acknowledged that he received at least two of the same drugs the president received. He even conceded that his “celebrity” status had given him access to care that others did not have.

Calling into ABC Radio from his hospital bed on Tuesday, he said specifically that he had received two drugs — remdesivir, which has F.D.A. approval for treatment of Covid-19, and dexamethasone, a steroid.

But he also said he had received the same treatment [Regeneron monoclonal antibody] “cocktail” as the president: “Exactly the same, his doctor sent me here; he talked me into it,” Mr. Giuliani said of Mr. Trump’s physician, adding, “The minute I took the cocktail yesterday, I felt 100 percent better. It works very quickly, wow.”

1. Why is this legal?

 

Poor people should get treatment.

2. I am with you on this. I posted about it too.

 

Not one of those bastards who received the cocktail has come out to say they benefited from their relationship to Trump and that suck treatment ought to be available to everyone who needs it. They ought to feel shame but none of them do.

In fact, the GOP is probably working behind the scenes to ensure that all registered GOP get access to the cocktail.

4. Yes, now that you mention it, the shamelessness is stunning.

I'm so used to their craven ways, I don't always notice it anymore. And that's a problem. We can't ever allow ourselves to become accustomed to this abomination.

7. And he bragged from his hospital bed that he was "feeling good"

before he got the treatment. Some poor sick sod probably got sent home so they could admit Rudy and give him the very best treatment available, while he was telling the world that he was "feeling good".
