Video: As Trump Honors Nurses At White House, Media Accuses Them Of Breaking Social Distancing Rules

“There’s not a single thing I can do to satisfy the media, the Democrats, and the fake news.”

As the President hosted a group of frontline nurses and healthcare workers at the White House, a reporter was beset by an overwhelming urge to show that orange man is bad.

“America’s nurses are waging a war against the invisible enemy,” Trump announced, adding ”They’re fighting on the frontlines of the battle risking their health to save lives of fellow citizens.”

Trump made the comments as he met with six nurses and the presidents of the American Nurses Association and the American Association of Nurse Practitioners, to sign a proclamation in honor of National Nurses Day.

Not good enough for the media however, with one reporter immediately accusing the president of sending the wrong message to Americans for not socially distancing and not wearing masks.

“I’m trying to be nice, I’m signing a bill and you criticize us,” Trump shot back.

“Look, here’s a story. There’s not a single thing I can do to satisfy the media, the Democrats, and the fake news.” Trump asserted.

Watch:

Defending Trump, the president of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners Sophia Thomas jumped in, explaining “We’re all COVID-19 free, we were all tested, we’re not socially distancing if we’re all negative, and we wouldn’t do anything to harm our president, obviously.”

Thomas further said that she had reused a mask in New Orleans for a long time, and that PPE was “sporadic” for a while where she worked, but was “manageable.”

“Sporadic for you, but not sporadic for a lot of other people,” Trump intervened.

“I agree Mr. President, absolutely,” Thomas replied.

This exchange was then reported by the media with headlines such as “Donald Trump undermines coronavirus nurse after she complained about ‘sporadic’ PPE” and “Trump rebukes nurse in White House.”

Those reports did not focus on the fact that the nurses all said they had good supplies of PPE.

One of the nurses from New Jersey commented that she cannot stand media reports about supposed  medical shortages, noting that they unnecessarily worry healthcare staff.

“It makes it so much worse for us nurses to work,” she said, adding “We’re seeing the reality of it, but to hear it on constantly … in reality, I’m not seeing it. I’m in a hot zone right now.”

“You know why? Because they’re fake news, that’s why,” Trump replied.

Pfizer CEO Bails On EU Testimony After Report Highlights ‘Secretive’ Vaccine Deal

Pfizer CEO Albert Bourla has bailed on an appointment to testify before the European Parliament’s special committee, where he was expected to face tough questions over secretive vaccine deals, Politico reports.

Bourla was scheduled to appear before the panel on Oct. 10, alongside key officials involved in the EUs vaccine procurement process, in order to discuss how to respond to future pandemics. According to the report, “Other pharmaceutical executives have addressed the committee, including the CEO of Moderna and senior officials from AstraZeneca and Sanofi.”

Bourla? Not so much.

The committee’s chair, Belgian MEP Kathleen Van Brempt, told POLITICO she “deeply regrets” the decision taken by Pfizer.

After a visit to BioNTech’s headquarters last week, Van Brempt had said in a written statement that she looked forward to discussions “with other CEOs” including “Mr. Albert Bourla, the CEO of Pfizer” on October 10. -Politico

In early September, an audit repirt into the EU’s vaccine procurement strategy raised questions over Bourla’s relationship with European Commission President Ursula von der Leyen before they struck a multibillion-euro vaccine deal.

The report, by the European Court of Auditors, found that von der Leyen had been directly involved in preliminary negotiations for the EU’s biggest vaccine contract, for up to 1.8 billion doses of the BioNTech/Pfizer vaccine, which was concluded in May 2021. This was a departure from the negotiating procedure followed with other contracts, where a joint negotiating team made up of officials from the Commission and member countries conducted exploratory talks. -Politico

In April, von der Leyen admitted that she had been texting with Bourla for a month straight while they were negotiating the massive contract. Two months later, the texts disappeared, triggering accusations of maladministration by the EU’s ombudsman, Emily O’Reilly,” Reuters reported at the time.

Bourla and von der Leyen’s cozy relationship was noted last year by the NYT, which Bourla told they had “developed a deep trust, because we got into deep discussions.”

“She knew details about the variants, she knew details about everything. So that made the discussion, way more engaged.”

And now Bourla won’t have to answer questions about it.

According to the latest OECD data, Iceland continues to have one of the highest levels of antidepressant use in the world – with an average consumption of 16 daily doses per 100 inhabitants in 2021.

In general, the northern countries are among the biggest consumers, with Canada and Sweden also showing a ratio of over 10 doses per 100 inhabitants per day. 

Worth noting however is the absence of the United States from the data.

As Statista’s Martin Armstrong shows in the infographic below, antidepressant use has become more widespread all around the world, with major increases from 2015 to 2020 or 2021 observed in Iceland, Portugal and Sweden, as well as Belgium and Greece.
