Oh dear. The Lancet is now an Enemy of the People. Such irrational hatred of Trump, such Fake News.

Letter from The Lancet, republished on an Indian site:

'Statement from The Lancet in response to President Donald Trump's May 18 letter to Dr Tedros Adhanom
Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization'

On May 18, 2020, President Donald Trump wrote to the Director-General of the World Health Organization, Dr Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. In that letter, President Trump reports the results of a review his administration conducted into WHO’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic. President Trump wrote that “we know the following” and the first allegation he makes is that WHO “consistently ignored credible reports of the virus spreading in Wuhan in early December 2019 or even earlier, including reports from the Lancet medical journal. The World Health Organization failed to independently investigate credible reports that conflicted directly with the Chinese government’s official accounts, even those that came from sources within Wuhan itself.”

This statement is factually incorrect. The Lancet published no report in December, 2019, referring to a virus or outbreak in Wuhan or anywhere else in China.

...

The allegations levelled against WHO in President Trump’s letter are serious and damaging to efforts to strengthen international cooperation to control this pandemic. It is essential that any review of the global response is based on a factually accurate account of what took place in December and January.

You rarely see 'a factually accurate account' and 'Trump' in the same sentence.

I'll just ask how is your cardio?
Five consecutive whataboutisms followed by a question about cardio. You're a champ, Daggles.
You have no opinion to share aside from your thoughts about me
My comments chiefly addressed your comments. For instance, I recognized five of them as whataboutism, one as a total irrelevance and one as mistaking two examples of racism as a definition of racism. Now I add to my descriptions of your comments one that confuses thoughts about your mistakes, irrelevancies and evasions with thoughts about you.

You're misusing the word 'enamoured' in a similar fashion Trump misused the word 'support' when he described the noise of the truck drivers protesting their hardship outside.

Your focus is undeniable. I choose to see your attention in a favourable light. Did you mean to express something else?

SO glad that Pelosi has finally made 'fat-shaming' OK again.

I do hope it improves our collective health. Holy SHIT did I ever get that wrong in years past.

Will media bias show this by shrinking models back to healthy human size again?

Pelosi vs Cosmo...who will come out on top?

I've missed you. Have you recovered from your over-exercise yet?

Almost time for another session. :)
