As I’ve pointed out before, the entire saga shows that, when push comes to shove and a crisis hits, physicians’ dedication to science- and evidence-based medicine is disturbingly weak.

One thing is very clear, Dr. Didier Raoult, and David L Brown M.D. should have their licenses to practice medicine revoked, like what happened to former doctor Andrew Wakefield.

Republicans don’t need to vote in the Wisconsin primary election, Trump is the nominee. Their actions to prevent a delay clearly show they want only Democrats to be forced to go congregate in large crowds. The very active voters in the population are mostly in the highest risk group for death in this pandemic. Therefore the Wisconsin Republicans are clearly hoping to kill many Wisconsin Democrats.
