Trump was elected President with a past not too different than Gillum.  What's the difference?

Trump was a historically terrible president.

Gillum paid a $25 million dollar fraud settlement for Gillum University? Don't remember that.

In a boat at sea one of the men began to bore a hole in the bottom of the boat. On being remonstrating with, he answered, "I am only boring under my own seat." "Yes," said his companions, "but when the sea rushes in we shall all be drowned with you."

For those who like to point out that the death rate from COVID-19 is lower than it used to be, that's true. But here's a rerun of the list of "long COVID" nasties that can affect you even if you survive:

Loss of smell or taste
Depression or anxiety
Difficulty breathing or shortness of breath
Tiredness or fatigue
Difficulty thinking or concentrating (sometimes referred to as “brain fog”)
Chest or stomach pain
Erectile dysfunction
Headache
Fast-beating or pounding heart (also known as heart palpitations)
Joint or muscle pain
Pins-and-needles feeling
Diarrhea
Sleep problems
Dizziness on standing (lightheadedness)
Change in smell or taste
Changes in period cycles
Blood clots
Strokes, seizures and Guillain-Barre syndrome
Multiorgan effects or autoimmune conditions
Multisystem inflammatory syndrome (MIS)

We've had a very bad third wave over here. The number of new cases has fallen for the past five days, but hospitalisations are up. And everything opened up on the 19th - so there could be a lag before we start seeing lots of new cases. Apparently a lot of younger people are being hospitalised this time, so the Delta variant appears to affect younger people more severely.

It's all a bit stressful, tbh.

Yeah... the popular meme that the unvaccinated are uneducated right wingers is only partially correct...  according to the Bloomberg numbers only the American Asians seem to be mostly on board with vaccination...

Absolutely!  There is no excuse for healthcare workers to not be vaccinated. Medical exemptions should be reassigned to non patient contact...

Agreed.  For once you are correct. (J/K) :)

I guess hell just froze again, because I agree with BT, too.
