    Trump didn't ignore the pandemic. He WAS slow to react to it. He DID get some terrible advice from Fauci et.al. Go back and review Fauci's statements about Covid from late January , 2020 through the Summer. His pronouncements seemed to change with the weather. Who is responsible for the vaccines we have now ? Trump.

    As late as yesterday he is still poo pooing hydroxychloroquine as a treatment fir Covid. Which flies in the face of hundreds of thousands of successfully treated patients worldwide.

    The fumbling and bumbling that killed 3% as many Americans as COVID-19? And accounted for at most 8% worldwide deaths from H1N1 as opposed to 20% for COVID-19? America First!

    Not Trump, BioNTech (whose research was funded by Germany, not Operation Warp Speed).

    Dan Primack: Pfizer didnít take Operation Warp Speed money for the development of this vaccine. Just from a fiduciary standpoint, why not? It was kind of free money, or were there major strings attached from your perspective?
    Albert Bourla, CEO of Pfizer: There was free money, but always I think that there's never free lunch. When you take money from someone, there are always strings attached. But it was not an easy decision from a fiduciary point of view because the level of investment eventually is approaching or will exceed the $2 billion eventually. But the reason why I did that was because I wanted to liberate our scientists [from] any bureaucracy that comes with having to give reports and agree how we are going to spend the money in parallel or together, etc.

    There was a LOT more to Operation Warp Speed than just money. The vaccines were put on streamlined fast tracks for approval. Approvals that usually took five years or more were done in months.

    Let's get it all clear and in the open. When you type "Who is responsible for the vaccines we have now ? Trump," what you mean is "He didn't contribute to BioNTech's research and development and he didn't contribute to BioNTech's funding, but he may have fast tracked vaccine approvals that would normally take longer." And you seriously want try to tell us he's responsible?

    Without the fast tracking I doubt we would have any vaccines at present.

    This is not equivalent to "Who is responsible for the vaccines we have now ? Trump," and you know it. You're being intentionally obtuse again.

    "Without biotechnology companies, we would not have any vaccines at present. But let's tell people that Trump is responsible."

    You are deliberately confusing two different things to try and make some sort of point.
    Trump did not develop the vaccines. Who ever said he did ? He DID see to it that testing and approval of those vaccines was fast tracked.

    No, not at all. But you are intentionally misleading people by conflating an alleged small contribution to responsibility:

    This is ignoring the facts that Pfizer filed for emergency use authorization and that the approval is done by the FDA, not Trump himself. And it was weeks (late November to mid December) for a process that takes months (not "five years or more").

    Just a heads up everyone, I've allowed way more political discussions and threads and posts than we are supposed to. It was such a traumatic couple years, and especially the last 8-9 months, and it seemed good to let people vent.

    And maybe even learn from each other

    He sorry couldn't resist.

    Anyway going to have to start closing political threads etc, now.

    I tend to close political threads that have a lot of reported posts first.

    I agree. It's all over, anyway. So, no point anymore. I don't even think they are protesting anymore.

    Close the Trump posts but leave this one open. The Trump posts are ancient and useless, but this one is a bit better (though I haven't seen a real BLM protest in quite a while, just me though). We all want to see equivalency in everyone, and that is BLM's goal.

    But all those Trump posts are old, irrelevant, and matter not now. He's out of office so who cares.

    Djoser, you should go back to the old policy of not allowing political posts, but this one is about social justice and that's a different thing. Just me, though.

    "Social justice " is not political ? It doesn't have a political element ?

    Sometimes, but not always. Far less political than directly talking about a defeated President.
