Trump the Vampire: Announcement Today Per WashPo Is Minor–Clearing Way to Use Plasma Donations from Recovered Patients


Donald Trump is a vampire after all.

He wants to suck the blood — or the plasma part of it– from recovered COVID patients and use it on new patients.

This is his big announcement today at 6pm. The Washington Post broke the story,  although apparently there was discussion of “convalescent plasma” on the Sunday news shows.

There has been interest in the effectiveness, but it’s not considered any kind of “game changer” in the curing or preventing of COVID. This is not a vaccine and has nothing to do with one. It’s just Trump the Vampire trying to make noise on the eve of the Republican convention.

I was excited because I thought Trump and the My Pillow guy were going to announce a pillow-Clorox cure today.
