Yes, and you can find no shortage of professionals who were saying literally the same thing the day before.Was he listening to scientists when he said it's "like a flu", and "should be treated like a flu"?
Yes. To be fair, that's not a hunch, and he's full of crap in that regard, but he was 100% being fed that information by more educated people.Was he listening to the scientists when he claimed the WHO death rate was false, and claimed it was 1%, based on what he himself described as "a hunch"?
There are reports coming out now about fast tracking a vaccine by September. Also, yes, yes he was.Was he listening to scientists when he suggested a vaccine would be available within months?
Probably not on that one, that's all Trump.Was he listening to scientists when he suggested the disease would just disappear "like a miracle"?
Freaking yes! Are you listening to the experts at all? People were talking about hydroxychloroquire in advance of Trump. Experts were actively testing it. Bayer was donating a mountain of it to the federal government.Jesus, was he listening to the scientists when he suggested untested drugs, disinfectant, and strong light to kill the virus?
He made those comments about disinfectant and light immediately after CDC experts gave a presentation on the effectiveness of disinfectant and light. Imagining that would work inside people is pure Trump and extra dumb, but it was in the form of a question directed at the experts that he's been following the guidance of. Geez.
Is anyone else following these events outside the context of Trump? Anyone at all? Do you all not know what experts have been saying as things occur? The whole world isn't Trump, you can't just mock him in hindsight without context. Most of your criticism was him repeating expert advice.
Edit to hammer this home:
The man jumps on a readily available potential treatment the moment it shows promise, exactly what you'd want him to do, and you're still dogpiling because initial results weren't repeated under closer scrutiny. What the hell do you want?
