So turns out that video is not a hoax. It is John Roberts the White House corespondent for Fox News and New York Times photographer Doug Mills.

They claim the whole thing is just a joke. I guess thatís really the only thing you could say. If a preliminary vaccine was available to those people around the President all the time none of us would be told, probably under threat of a national security violation. No one is claiming itís not real though. AP has already run a story on it as have others.

John Roberts has dismissed it as a joke. But listen to it and make up your own mind. If itís a joke it sure doesnít sound like it. In poor taste As well all things considered.† The study he cited In the recording is real I have no reason to think the rest is not.

Guess we get to file this in the ďThe peasants will never know for sureĒ right next to ďEpstein definitely, for super sure killed himself so stop askingĒ


Sorry but this video is utterly classic trolling in my opinion.

That doesn't mean I can tell you who the troll is Wink.

The mix of truth (the two California studies are true, as far as I can see) and fiction, whether joke or otherwise, about people in the White House being vaccinated, is Propaganda 101.

So, apparently, we have an infection with a quiet low infection fatality rate (ie. why worry about it?), conjoined with the conspiracy-style 'the leaders are all vaccinated and safe against this'.

I find it hard to believe any administration (even this one!) would decide to inoculate themselves with an untried vaccine. Then, we start thinking of reasons why they would have a safe vaccine, and down the rabbit hole we go.† Sad








I mean anything is possible?  I personally question whether two people with this kind of access and credentials would make a joke video like this. Especially about this subject. You know what Iím saying? Regardless of actual mortality rate people are dying and losing their livelihoods. Thereís no question that they said it. Itís a real conversation so that leaves the only options as them being serious or they are joking. If joking itís just about the strangest joke Iíve heard. Neither one gives any indication and both seem to be having a legit conversation. I donít know. People can listen for themselves and make up their own mind I guess. Strange video either way.

   Yes, I am bored. Most of us are.  People are social animals.  We aren't built for this.  But I would much rather be bored than drowning in my own snot in the hospital.  I'll take bored.

   I can't imagine such a device being effective.  You'd have to find a suspect who was willing to stand still while you get the stupid thing around him.

Back when people carried swords, Japanese and Chinese police carried long poles with a fork on the end and lots of cords with fishhooks.  Several of them would pin the guy with the forks, the hooks kept him from pulling loose.  A few more would rush the swordsman and and then club him into submission. 

Seemed to work, gunpowder is what made the police stop using that, the swordsman would pull out a gun and start shooting.

   In that I'm retired, other than not bowling two or three times a week my life hasn't been significantly changed by this quarantine.  Without the bowling though one day is the same as the next.  I often have no idea what day of the week it is.  If our so called government  decides that it's time to open things up again I will remain quarantined.  I'm not willing to die to restart our economy.  I will remain as I am now until there's a vaccine. Many feel as I do. Things won't be "normal" again until that vaccine is produced.

I don't think anything will be normal again. One thing might be the death of the handshake. I think it was something that younger people weren't that bothered about before anyway and the rise of digital communication was changing things, but now I can't imagine ever shaking someone's hand again comfortably. Then again, I'm a nurse, we never shook hands before the virus anyway. Same as you Ratman, it's going to take a vaccine for me to really feel comfortable and even then there's going to be a lot of idiots that won't get it so it's hard to know at what point I can relax. Now it's out in the wild and mutating, it might be that this is a seasonal thing now or society will just always be far more closed up than it was before. Everything is still so uncertain.

can we trust a vaccine that was produced so fast ?
not refusing to vaccinate but I would prefer to be vaccinated last.
It would be nice if we could be sure that scientists worked for science and humanity and not for corporations. if people can print out money and get away with it they will, opportunity makes the thief.

What's the population size? Here in Finland we've had 275 throughout the whole country, majority of them being in Uusimaa.
