During his illness, amid his attempts to overturn the certification of election results, Giuliani quickly made medical matters worse. No, his newest missteps fall short of his press conference at the Four Seasons Total Landscaping storefront in Pennsylvania — but they do substantial damage to the country’s ongoing attempts to prevent and to treat new Covid-19 infections.
To be clear — Giuliani has no idea why he feels better. Nor do his doctors. We simply don’t know enough about how and why patients with Covid-19 improve.
But here are the facts about each component of the cocktail that the President and his friend the Mayor received (and endorsed).
Giuliani’s latest nonsense will lead to many patients, those without comparable strings to pull, feeling like they didn’t receive the best treatment– the Rudy one, the real one, the one that makes you feel 100% better almost immediately. This may add to the haves versus have-nots grievances that already are crippling the country. It also may waste untold healthcare dollars on unneeded treatments.
But most destructive of all, it represents yet another nyah nyah nyah suckers! mockery of careful science and careful scientists perpetrated by the gang that believes nothing they don’t like, listens to no one who doesn’t agree with them, and skedaddles off to the next excellent adventure whenever problems begin to mount. All without a moment of doubt or remorse. It seems that those who do unconscionable things in fact have no conscience at all. Perhaps that’s a paleo-mindset too.
