You've heard by now how Pfizer, one of America's largest pharmaceutical companies, is preparing a COVID-19 vaccine that should be ready to go within the next few weeks. They're saying as early as next month, after recent tests showed 95% effectiveness. Personally, I'd rather have total, as in 100%, effectiveness, before taking the vaccine.
President Donald Trump, predictably, is whining, because he now believes Pfizer held back on the vaccine until after the election on purpose to undermine him.
As the Rolling Stones reminded us back in the day, you can't always get what you want, but if you try sometimes, you get what you need.
Or, as Davy Crockett opined years earlier, "be sure you are right, then go ahead". What Trump wanted was to take credit, as usual, for the vaccine, when he didn't do diddly. He'd mistake a test tube for a condom, if you get my drift. Pfizer's staff erred on the side of caution, and were satisfied with 95% effectiveness after testing. Whether or not this actually will work, of course, remains to be seen.
Meanwhile, the Duchess of Dumb, Kayleigh McEnany, went on Spam Hannity's show Friday, and told another tall tale, this time claiming, falsely, of course, that it wasn't a smooth transition from Barack Obama to Trump in 2016.
Forget television. She's got a future in creative writing. For the National Enquirer.
It's been documented a number of times recently, especially by the Obamas themselves, they they opened their doors to the Trumps for a transition of power, as tradition dictates, after Donald Trump won the election. Remember, too, that Hillary Clinton conceded the election the day after, and handled the defeat with class & dignity, some things that Trump and his hand puppets, including McEnany, will insist isn't the case.
Let's just say that karma is still paying house calls on the Trump administration, as Dumb Donald II tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday, as did some White House staff. Consider that Dumb Donald I has dismissed the virus, given how he allegedly recovered in less than a week, so we'll see if the apple does fall close enough to the tree in this case.
