My point about all this: there are only a few choices here as to what was actually going on; none of them good for this country.
1. They actually did have serious vaccine talks happening and/or on their radar as far back as January 13 (or sooner), then proceeded to gaslight the entire country for months on end - and 250,000 of us are dead, with more to come.
2. They quickly looked at Moderna’s website and govt paperwork that had little to do with them; then made shit up and tweeted it.
You may recall that COVID supposedly made it into the PDB as early as January 3. Trump denied knowing it was serious until “just prior” to February 2.…
Let’s not allow Ivanka to shapeshift. She’s conveniently a senior advisor when she wants to try to horn in on convos with prime ministers; merely a family member when accountability is demanded.
So, we have the president’s senior advisor publicly stating in no uncertain terms that they knew as early as January 13 that this was serious enough to necessitate work on a vaccine.
Maybe the press could hold their feet to the fire and ask them to explain themselves. They’ll have to explain that they’re either incompetent, liars, gaslighters or all of those things.
They either knew and did nothing, or they didn’t know (or care) and are making shit up. (the follow up to that is: how could you possibly NOT know?)
And she/they are revealing one of these ugly truths during a pandemic. While people are dying. While they’re attempting this:

It’s difficult to get our minds around exponential growth because it’s largely invisible to us, even though we’re surrounded by it in our daily lives. (Mold grows exponentially. And yeast. And populations. And your money, with compound interest.)

So let’s try to get our minds around it.

Imagine you made a deal with your bank, and convinced them to give you 1 penny on the first day of the month, then double it every day thereafter. So on day two, you have 2 cents. Day three, 4 cents; day 5, 8 cents, and so on.
By day 8 you have a buck-28. So what. Big deal.

By day 15 you have $163. Okay, nice.

When our healthcare system collapses, so does the ability to effectively and quickly vaccinate people.
We pretty much ignored what was happening in Italy in the early parts of the pandemic. We should have paid attention then, and we should pay attention now. Here's a preview of what collapse looks like:…
Those are ambulances with coronavirus patients waiting in line, because there's nowhere to put people.

Insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We're doing the same thing with COVID and expecting different results. We need to change course, and we need to do it now.
They're already doing it in the UK.…

If this is true, it's...there aren't words for how evil and depraved it is. This is from Trump's Senior Advisor, aka daughter. Let's look at what was happening at this time. Image
The first confirmed case isn't until 8 days later:…
January 22, 2020: Trump says "It’s one person coming in from China. We have it under control. It’s going to be just fine."…

Holy shit. What an utter disgrace.…
A large chunk of our council has now been arrested on bribery charges. I’m ashamed to have ever supported them. What a disgusting breach of public trust.
I guess we’ll find out what he was doing at 11 am.

We haven’t gotten it through our skulls that all the extra beds, makeshift event center hospitals, PPE and ventilators in the world won’t make a bit of difference if there aren’t any medical professionals around.…
Nor have we gotten it through our skulls that when we go into labor/get into a car wreck/slice our finger off/shatter our leg/have a baby spiking a terrifying fever we’ll be SOL when the hospital’s full of COVID patients.
Coming to a hospital near you: “Last Monday we had 25 patients waiting in the emergency department. They had been admitted but there was no one to take care of them.”
