Warp Speed’s Factors

Let’s weigh the COVID-19 vaccines’ minuses and plusses:

(-) The Trump regime’s, “Operation Warp Speed” nomenclature / branding doth sound a bit reckless. Were we to extend that Sci-Fi metaphor, we’d wind up factoring in our memories of big and small screen Star Trek storylines where that velocity got many a starship crew both IN and OUT of trouble (shall we say) in a hurry?

(-) We also need to factor in how the fake prez is no “Honest Abe”. He has Tweeted / bleated over 20,000 false / misleading statements (on a multitude of issues) since his rise to power AND, right from the get-go, has routinely minimized and politicized the pandemic to prioritize his own interests over everybody else’s.

(+) Dr. Anthony Fauci’s impressive resume. He’s served five other presidents well; namely Reagan, Daddy Bush, Clinton, Sonny Bush and Obama. Even better, during televised White House Coronavirus Task Force TV briefings the good doctor has skillfully and successfully debunked Donny right to his face.

(+) Trump has frittered away much of his life grifting, golfing, pigging out on fat fast food and vegging out / getting off on the accolades puked out by his propaganda ministers. Factoring in his sleeping, “grabbing”, eating and defecating episodes, too, there simply would not have been enough hours left in each day for him to have his sayso re the Scientific Method and specific vaccine components (not that he’d even have an inkling re what to recommend in either respect).

(+) The closest Donny has ever come to donning a white lab coat is when he lumbers down the KKK catwalk, decked out in his supremacist duds; i.e.. his white robe and hood (a.k.a. his dunce cap).

(+) During the vaccine trial period, we’ve heard of no test subjects reporting deleterious side effects that would suggest any Trump “cloning” around; i.e., everyone winding up resembling him; e.g., suffering massive weight gain, reduced IQ, diarrhea of the mouth, garbled speech, snorting / sniffing, etc. There’s been nary a whisper of mental illness, either; e.g., malignant narcissism, psychotic episodes, delusions of grandeur, paranoia, pigheadedness, etc.

(+) The medical professionals are getting the first shots. If the vaccine developers had any serious reservations about safety, they’d have never risked harming the very hospital personnel we need to fight Corona-V.

It’s those above 5 pluses which offer us our much needed glimmer of hope.

However, we must also keep in mind that, at this early stage of the vaccine roll-out, the medical community believes inoculated people can still be COVID-19 carriers / spreaders; hence…

Is There a Doctor in the House?

 

On one hand, there’s physician and immunologist Anthony Fauci, the learned, articulate, trustworthy professional, who’s a member of the White House Coronavirus Task Force. On the other hand, there’s the lusting for reelection, drama queen Donald J. Trump, whose ‘tude re Fauci could be best summed up as 99% jeers and barely 1% percent cheers (if even that).

It boggles the mind how such unpresidential pettiness could even play out against the backdrop of a raging out of control, deadly pandemic (of Trump’s own making). And, worse yet, that the fake prez would have the umittigated gall to even believe that his miserably flunking out in Pandemics 101 would still, somehow, entitle him to a second term. But it is what it is, right?

Anyway, for approximately the past two weeks, insufferable Donny’s psychotic episodes… all intricately intertwined like a soap opera’s ongoing, episodic plot… find him one nanosecond away from deadpanning, “You’re Fired!” and promptly marching Fauci out the infamous White House revolving door.

What’s pissing off the pissant prez is, at least, twofold…

• Fearless Fauci publicly rectifies the fake prez’s verbal diarrhea.
• The Doctor’s approval ratings soar, while sorehead Donny’s tank.

And for that how-dare-you-correct-me, TV ratings / public opinion polls obsessed prima donna / Donald, that’s a bitter pill to swallow.

It’s almost ludicrous how the one and only qualification Anthony needs to earn his keep is to continue drawing in the very audiences that narcissist / adulation junkie Donny simply cannot live without.

Such a trade-off could be well worth it, considering how the side effect of Fauci getting the last laugh… i.e., his continued presence… could, eventually, become the literal difference between life and death.
