    Everyone is commenting on how the doctor is hot. All I can see is that he is young. I was searching for the Doogie Howser comments and found none. I’ve learned today that I am old.

    I want to know how this came to be. Did Colbert hear Jake on the phone with his mom and go, “I need her on the show” or did Jake come to a meeting like “You all need to meet my mother”

    Let’s see- Bootsie “prepares” for isolation: cookies, Chef Boy-r-dee, popcorn, Mike & Ike candies. Wow, what a great American diet ! We’ve been in isolation for 3 weeks. It’s a GREAT opportunity to quit shopping & eating out. Now I enjoy WAY BETTER (& cheaper) eating. My new and improved, go-to cuisine includes fresh steamed veggies- eg. chuncks of unskinned potatoes, carrots, broccoli, beets, onions, and lightly broiled chicken, tuna, fruit juices and V-8, with whole-wheat, home-made bannock, with Greek yoghurt and dried fruit in it.
    WHICH diet do you think will keep a person ‘regular’ and healthy? Bootsie, Covid-19 is gonna get you down, if you ever “get it”. I do hope your son keeps you safe.

    ……Bootsie, 9:29, “… cuz you could get stuck in the house for 2 weeks” ?. Try 2+ MONTHS! Only keeping EVERYONE away from EVERYone, can starve the virus of its next victims. Worst- none of us even know when we become contagious, cuz it can take up to a week+ to even feel anything! So, stay out of other peoples ‘airstream” because as they now know- large saliva droplets, (i.e. >5 microns), hit the ground in 6-8 ft., BUT the tiny droplets, remain an aerosol, for up to two hours! landing on clothing, exposed skin, and worst- breathed in! Look how many on the Princess cruise ship, got infected, (over 700!!) by STAYING in their rooms.. cuz of ‘central air’. Lovely; you are breathing what other ppl just exhaled!

    This poor doctor… trying to not get his practice fucked over by giving a direct answer to the “has Trump done a good job…?” question. The conservatives think “PC” is all about pandering to people they think are “weak” or “wrong”, and here we have a medical professional struggling to be politically safe so that he doesn’t get dumped by whatever monster hospital system employs him, should he make a legit criticism of Trump and the insane Trump supporters come after the hospital for being “political”.
