    actually the regeneron treatment is administered by 4 sub-dermal injections in the abdomen once a month for TEN MONTHS. i helped research the treatment in phase one and it looked awful. but it gives me a little joy to think of 45 enduring that for 10 months straight

    Perhaps it is finally time for you, impudent Gaetz
    To leave behind your studious jail-baits
    We’re so tired of your screaming face
    That ever espouses something entirely base,
    Your arrogance unparalleled, your stance so haughty
    But now, evil sleazy fiend, they’ve caught you being naughty
    Go forever, can’t you, to an craggy island remote,
    Come on dude, I’ll even pay to hire the boat.

    Is the guy with the face-recognition software the same “expert” that had patented—what he called advanced recognition technology? And who earlier had claimed—when testifying at a GOP hearing—his digital security business could go through every single ballot in a few days and find out if they were fraudulently cast. The “expert” the Qanons cried “deep state” over when he wasn’t allowed to do so. The ”genius inventor’ whose patented recognition system was a cat toy that also could scan bar-codes. And when connected to a computer, get you to the web site. A bar-code reader who a few years ago received a computer magazine mention for being among the worst computer accessories of that year, because it didn’t always take you to the correct website.
    The ever-trumpers are still so upset that this digital identification genius wasn’t deployed to use his superior technology to in a heartbeat reveal all the millions of fraudulent votes they claimed there were.

    “Not just to Trumpism, but to the man himself.” Point of order. The two are the same thing. Trump’s only “policy” was whatever benefited Trump personally. It’d be impossible to embrace Trumpism without slavish devotion to the man himself, since there’s nothing else to Trumpism to embrace.

    Oh, sure, Trump’s brand is chock full of racism, but if you’re embracing racism without focusing on Trump, you just get seen as a run of the mill racist, not a Trumpist.
