All I know is that one dumbass was removed from his local decision loop by the chloroquinine thing.

Anyone still stupid enough to take Trump seriously won't be a big loss when they inject Lysol or Draino or whatnot.

Ha! More like "in order to not lose a debate to his daughter, who has gotten much better at arguing than when she was a child."

Some people are just too stupid to live, regardless.

Silly bunny, one does not win against clodfobble. The best you can hope for is she's called away by something more pressing.

Every now and again, as heated as they sometimes got, I miss political arguments/discussions with my dad.

I do wonder what he would have made of all this. And then I think, with his COPD the current situation would have been terrifying. And trying to self isolate in a hoarders house - unable to spend most of his day out and about as he preferred to do. Maybe its a boon he didn't have to see what is happening right now.

I can't image what he would have thought of Trump - I think he'd have found him too boorish and dishonest.

I suspect he'd have liked Boris though.

Fair enough; if all you were doing was saying that he wasn't being sarcastic, then we're in agreement. Please treat the 'you' in my initial response as a generic 'you'.

As an aside, obligatory XKCD:

Realistically he "wins" by dragging me into a political argument in the first place. My real improved skill is just politely nodding and ignoring absurdities.

From that NY Post article:
Quote:
Sales of chloroquine phosphate skyrocketed last month after some studies found that a pharmaceutical version of the chemical could be a possible treatment for COVID-19.
Prayers to god also are a possible treatment. Trump did not recommend that. So he must be Satan. To deny us a cure.

There was a lot of fuss in the media about Boris Johnson being Britain's Trump... Aside from the hair and some occasional gormlessness, I struggle to see the similarity.
