President Trump Meets With Governor Doug Ducey of Arizona – Video and Transcript…

Earlier today President Trump met with Arizona Governor Doug Ducey in the oval office. [Video and Transcript Below]

.

[Transcript] – THE PRESIDENT: Well, thank you very much. It’s an honor to be with the governor of a fabulous state, Arizona. It’s Doug Ducey, and we know him well. And we’ve had a tremendous relationship. He had a tremendous, big, very big election victory. And he has done an incredible job on COVID, or COVID-19, or about 19 other names we can call it. It’s got probably more names than anything else you can think of. And he was hit very hard, and he’s — and he hit back even harder.

And I’d like to have Doug explain it a little bit. And you — perhaps you both want to explain it, but you’ve done a fantastic job. We’re very proud of you. We love the people of Arizona, and they are very proud of the job you’ve done also, Doug.

So maybe you can — and this is some of the things that we’ve provided, which is a lot. When Doug would call, I’d take his call, and he was always asking for a lot for Arizona, and that’s the way a good governor should be.

So, Doug, please.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: Well, I want to say thank you, Mr. President. This has really been a partnership between Arizona and your administration. I want to thank Dr. Deborah Birx, who actually came to Arizona and sat with leaders. The — the COVID-19 crisis didn’t hit Arizona until later.

THE PRESIDENT: Right.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: We had a very difficult June. We’ve had a much better July. We sat down with Dr. Birx and the Coronavirus Task Force and talked about mitigation steps — things like wearing masks. And we’ve got masks in over 90 percent of our states right now. And then the simple things like physical distancing —

THE PRESIDENT: Right.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: — washing your hands, staying home if you’re sick.

And we did take some further steps. We were in the unhappy but responsible position of dispersing large crowds. So bars and nightclubs and gyms all closed temporarily. But upon putting those steps out there, we’ve seen improvement every week, week over week, for four weeks.

We’re going to keep our guard up. We’re going to stay vigilant, but there’s a real path forward and a commonsense approach that we can apply in Arizona not only around saving lives, but also safely and successfully getting our kids back to school at the appropriate time.

THE PRESIDENT: And what are you down — because the percentage down is incredible. What — how much did you go down, percentage-wise?

GOVERNOR DUCEY: Well, we saw our positivity get as high as 21.

THE PRESIDENT: Right.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: Now, upon reopening — and we were part of the White House “Slow the Spread” —

THE PRESIDENT: Right.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: — for four weeks. We extended it for two more weeks. We had our positivity as low as 4 percent. Just yesterday, it was 10 percent. The week before, it was 11. So it’s on a downward trajectory.

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah. Right. Right.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: And I think with the steps that we’re having, the good decisions that Arizonans are making — the face — the face masks and physical distancing, and the fact that people are embracing it.

And I also want to say, our private sector folks have been terrific.

THE PRESIDENT: That’s great.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: All of the businesses — if you want to participate in any good or service in Arizona, you’re going to wear a mask before you go in there, and that’s been a positive.

THE PRESIDENT: That’s really great. Great job.

Deborah, you said something really great about Arizona before. What would it be?

DR. BIRX: Yeah. I said they just really did a great job putting these pieces together and really creating that path forward.

Arizona was the first state — obviously, we’ve been writing your governors report for six weeks. We went to Arizona. We had a model that showed if you did these five commonsense things, you could drive what we call the “replication rate,” the R1, under one and really decrease cases, hospitalizations, and critically, mortality.

Governor Ducey walked that with us, and we’ve demonstrated now that you can keep a state open and retail open if you do these five commonsense pieces. And it’s created a safe — saved the hospitals and saved a lot of Arizonans.

And we’ve taken that model, sir, all the way across the South and up into Tennessee and Kentucky and Ohio and Indiana. And we’ll be going to six states in the Heartland next week because we think this is a way to really decrease cases, decrease hospitalizations, decrease mortality while still keeping things safe through this commonsense approach.

THE PRESIDENT: So you’re proud of the governor, you said before.

DR. BIRX: Very proud of the governor. He was our — he was willing to be the first example of how to move forward together.

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah. No, you really did.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: Well, we listened to your team. I mean, and Dr. Birx came and spent a lot of time — drove to Arizona from Texas, through New Mexico; gave me a tutorial on the R0. I’ve been talking about it in my press conferences. We’ve been under 1 — the day we talked about this, and you said this would be the equivalent of a stay-at-home order —

DR. BIRX: Yeah.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: — if we were able to wear masks and shut down these large gatherings. We were at 1.18 on the R0. We got as low as any state in the country — 0.9. It stays —

THE PRESIDENT: Right. It’s amazing.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: — under 1, to date.

So, like I said, no celebration, no victory lap. We’re going to stay the course and stay vigilant and keep our guard up. But we have a path forward in Arizona, and we’re going to keep pressing.

THE PRESIDENT: And you had a great representative over here, and you taught us a lot. You really came up with some —

GOVERNOR DUCEY: I’ve got a great advisor here in Gretchen Conger. She’s been with us since the first year of the administration, and she sits in on all these meetings. And, yes, her, along with Dr. Cara Christ and General Mick McGuire have been top-tier, in terms of advising.

MS. CONGER: Thank you, Governor.

THE PRESIDENT: Would you like to say something in front of all of these wonderful people?

MS. CONGER: Sure. Mr. President, I would just like to say that the partnership that we have with your administration is the best that we could ask for. You always pick up the phone. What we need, we’ve gotten — the remdesivir treatments. We can’t say enough about how grateful we are for everything that you sent.

THE PRESIDENT: How is that working, the remdesivir? How is it going?

MS. CONGER: It’s working well, thankfully.

THE PRESIDENT: That’s what I’m hearing.

MS. CONGER: Yeah. With the Coronavirus Task Force, you guys have really been able to dig into where they’re needed most with the daily reports that we send out. And so we’ve been able to really target it to the folks who need it most.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: And in addition to the remdesivir, the resources for Navajo Nation and the tribal nations in excess of $1.1 billion, along with the surge testing sites that have happened in Maryvale and South Phoenix —

THE PRESIDENT: Right.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: — some of our areas where many of the free- and reduced-lunch kids are, they needed this testing. Five thousand tests, twelve days in a row with good turnaround time.

THE PRESIDENT: That’s fantastic. Huh? Wow. Proud of you. That’s a great — that’s a great success.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: More to do, but thank you.

THE PRESIDENT: Yeah, more to do, but that’s a really —

DR. BIRX: Stay the course.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: Yeah, stay the course.

DR. BIRX: Keep those cases coming down.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: We like the trajectory, and we’re going to keep pressing, Doctor.

THE PRESIDENT: Fantas- — really, a fantastic job in Arizona. We appreciate it.

Does anybody have any question for the governor? And we’re going to have a news conference at 5:30, so you can ask a little bit there.

Please.

Q Mr. President, in your estimation, is mail-in voting safe in Arizona as it is, as you say, in Florida?

THE PRESIDENT: Well, I haven’t discussed it with the Governor. I can tell you: In Florida, they’ve done a very good job with it. In Nevada, it would be a disaster. In New York, it’s been a disaster. In many other places, it’s been a total catastrophe.

You know what’s going on in New York with the Carolyn Maloney. I think they have to have a new election. They’ve — you have no idea. That fraud, all sorts of many ballots. Paterson, New Jersey, I guess it’s 25 percent or 20 percent of the vote is tainted.

You can’t have that. You can’t have that. So it’s okay — absentee voting: Great. But this mail-in voting where they mail, indiscriminately, millions and millions of ballots to people, you’re never going to know who won the election. You can’t have that.

And Nevada is a big state. It’s an important state. It’s a very political state, and the governor happens to be a Democrat. And I don’t believe the Post Office can be set up. They were given no notice. I mean, you’re talking about millions of votes. No, it’ll be a — it’s a catastrophe waiting to happen.

Again, all you have to do is look at the vote that took place on a simple congressional district, in an area that should be able to do it very easily, in Manhattan. It’s a total — it’s a total — what’s happened, it’s a nightmare. Nobody has ever seen anything like it.

Look at Paterson, New Jersey, and look at other locations. We can’t have that. You’ll never know who the winner is, but the winner is going to be me.

So we’ll see you at 5:30, and we can talk about it a little bit more.

I just want to finish by saying: We’re very proud of the Governor and we are very proud of Arizona, because, in addition, the people had to help you, and they did. They’re really great people.

GOVERNOR DUCEY: They did.

Q I have a question for Governor Ducey. Governor Ducey, you vote mostly by mail in your state. Are you proud of your mail-in system in the state?

GOVERNOR DUCEY: In Arizona, we’re going to do it right. It will be free and fair. It will be difficult, if not impossible, to cheat. And it will be easy to vote. Seventy-eight percent of the citizens already vote by mail in Arizona. But we’ve been doing this since 1992. So over the course of decades, we’ve established a system that works and can be trusted. We’re 90 days before the election.

In Arizona, early ballots are going to be mailed in 60 days. This is no time to experiment. This is a time to go with the tried and true, and in Arizona, our system works very well.

Q Are you sharing with the President what are some of the best practices in your state so that he can apply to — he can look at it in terms of other states?

GOVERNOR DUCEY: Well, our state has been a model for this type of voting, for providing options and choice to our citizens. We’re not going to disenfranchise anyone. We’ve actually allocated an additional $9 million to make certain that Election Day voters can go safely in proper sanitized places that are well staffed on Election Day. We want to make sure that everyone that wants to vote can vote, and they will in Arizona.

THE PRESIDENT: And don’t forget, if you look at what they’re doing in Nevada: no signature. You take a look at the signature, and there’s no verification of signature allowed. I don’t know if you do that —

GOVERNOR DUCEY: We do.

THE PRESIDENT: — but there’s no verification of signatures. So they don’t even know who’s going to sign this. They have literally a clause that you don’t have to verify the signatures — that they don’t have to do it.

So right there, it’s no good; it’s defective. Two — two votes in an envelope — in a single envelope. It — this is a thing that will be a disaster like never before. So we’ll see what the court has to say about it.

Arizona has been doing this for a long time, and it’s been refined. Even if — if Nevada wanted to do it well, they wouldn’t have enough time. I’m sure the Post Office doesn’t have enough time. Millions of ballots, all of a sudden, coming out of nowhere. You know, voting starts in a very short period of time.

So, in Florida, they’ve done a good job. In Arizona, they’ve done a good job, but they’ve been doing this thing and refining it for years. This is something that’s put in — but think of this: no verification of the signature. Well, who’s going to sign it? They don’t even verify who’s going to sign it.

So it’s — I’m sure the courts will treat it very fairly. Let’s see what happens. Thank you all very much. I’ll see you in a little while.

Q Mr. President, if governors delay school —

THE PRESIDENT: I’ll see you later. I’ll be talking 5:30. Thank you. Thank you very much.

      I’m still in AZ; and I don’t trust him either.
      The mask hysteria has gone on and on TOO LONG — and there is more than enough data to show that they are unnecessary and in fact do more harm than good, and not only physically.

      I’m disgusted with Dr. Birx who states we have to have a vaccine in order to secure herd immunity. A Dr. says this. She totally dismisses that herd immunity can be gained by getting out in the fresh air, mingling with other people, and thereby building up your immunity naturally. When was the last time she talked about lifestyle choices and diet which lower our immunity? When did she last venture out of her vaccine-only bubble and tell us to seek out HYDROXYCHLORIQUINE if we begin to have symptoms? WHEN? She and Fauci both are selling fear, not solutions.

      Meanwhile the nefarious Gates works feverishly to . . . I’m just too angry to say more about that creature.

      If you’re sick stay home. But don’t make the rest of us knuckle under to draconian measures that serve to enslave us, make us dependent on the government — look to the government — instead of looking to ourselves to know what’s best for us.

      I’m fuming. And I DON’T LIKE DUCEY.

        Ducey has an Executive Order (EO) to FORBID physicians from prescribing HYDROXY-CHLORIQUINE. The physicians wrote Ducey to recind the EO to allow them to treat and save their patients.★ Ducey NEVER responded. He’s no better than Cuomo.

            He cannot be so removed from what other Doctors and Scientists are saying. This is a very disturbing situation which I wish we could get clarity on from those close to his inner circle. Why is he seemingly going right along with it and causing irreversible damage? Come vaccine time, I see many of his supporters ‘blowing up’.

        • Doug43 says:

          I am no fan of Ducey either, and I think much of what is in his Covid-19 executive orders grossly exceed his authority under Arizona law, but you are not correct about what that executive order says about prescribing hydroxychloroquine. The order (EO 2020-20, dated April 2nd) says that hydroxychloroquine can be prescribed if the patient has been diagnosed with Covid-19. What it forbids is the prophylactic prescription of it in the absence of a Covid-19 diagnosis. That was done to prevent a run on the drug to ensure adequate supplies would be on hand for those needing it for diagnosed conditions (Covid and non-Covid). I cannot say whether that concern was justified or is still justified, but it was a real concern back in the early days of the pandemic.

            Correct. My friend and neighbor tested positive in early July, and was prescribed HCQ shortly after (he had to go to three doctors before he could get the script, but he got it). For the record, he was symptom free within 48 hours of starting the HCQ/Zinc/Z Pack treatment.

            I don’t like or trust Ducey one bit, and I have no intention of voting for him again based on the way he’s been led around by the nose by bogus COVID data… but he didn’t ban HCQ.

            We have a pretty darn good Data Dashboard website. I have been checking it since it started. Was waiting for my elective surgery and got hooked and look at it at least twice a week!

            Down here in Cochise County—we were doing great. For the longest time we were at like 10 cases. And 0 deaths. I always pay attention to the deaths. Now we are up to 52 deaths. And over 1500 cases. We didn’t have any deaths yesterday.

            Is the data being manipulated-debatable. Me, I am in the vulnerable category right now–(recent surgery) so I have to wear a mask-and limit my time and encounters with crowds/people, etc.
            My health is MY responsibility. It is all Azz backwards—the vulnerable should be wearing the masks–not the healthy.

            I am working VERY hard to get my immunity back up. Thankfully I have none of those risk factors like obesity ,diabetes, heart and lung problems, etc! Now would be a great time for a nationwide-Be Healthy campaign!

      He is still Doug Douche. He is a weak and pathetic Governor. He IMMEDIATELY bent the knee to the Red for Ed commies, and he’s crumbled under pressure in dealing with Covid. He is a moron and I honestly see no difference between him and some dingbat democrat in his decisions of the last 2 years. I won’t vote for him ever again. He is the same as them.

        I’ve never paid attention to the guy, but why is he sitting there spewing with President Trump in the White House? I’m lost on why these bozos like him, Fauci, Brix have a place anywhere near Trump? He’s an idiot. I don’t see Trump as an idiot, why would he entertain these people? Reminds me of Fox News carrying water for CNN by quoting them. Why even recognize them at all?
        Anyone mandating masks and all these one sided closings is simply siding with insanity instead of common sense. The positive cases are a ruse, the deaths are BS. How did the flu disappear? Day of the corona virus hitting the flu was number one at the dr.s office then magically it is all gone.
        The world of bizzaro. “Dr I have a cancerous tumor on the side of my head the size of a basketball”. “ No,”exclaims fauci, “it’s corona virus.”

Look at the nameless excuse for a Utah senator. In MI PDJT endorsed Schuette for for GOP candidate for Gov. another bad choice. What did we get, whitless.

        I am not “rooting” for Ducey—just wondering–did you think Napolitano or Symington or Mecham were better? We got spoiled with Jan Brewer. And she wasn’t exactly popular with a lot of people in the state/country. Me, I loved her.

        At least Ducey is not as “controversial” as some of our previous governors have been.

        And you have to remember—Of our 27 Governors since we became a state —16 have been Democrat. Ah…that is MORE than half.

        Our state has elected known Alcoholics into office—we have Raul Grijalva–I think they go to the bar–clean and sober him up and then escort him and tell him how to vote. And then Ann Kirkpatrick–who just this year was so drunk she fell down and had to be taken to hospital…oh…but she stated she recognized she had a problem and was going to rehab–so all is honkey dorey. And….she didn’t go to rehab

        What she is doing right now is saying how great she is because she worked on a bill to get a bail out for our media outlets——because you know—they are suffering because—-of COVID-19!!!!!! That is priceless—-the reason people are not buying the propaganda newspapers or turning on the local news——-is because of COVID?

        What it has done, is guarantee her favorable coverage in all the media. See how that works? Any more of her fall down drunk episodes will surely be hidden from the public by the media.

        Keep saying….were do the get these candidates–do they recruit from bars?

      Arizona has a history of “controversial” Governors. I think we got spoiled with Jan Brewer. And she was not exactly well liked by Democrats in the state/country.

      I imagine that those that are calling Ducey names were those who were fans of—
      Janet Napolitano or Ed Mecham, etc.?

      Az seems to have a problem recruiting viable candidates for office. Right now we have two VERY well known alcoholics in office—Grijalva and Anne Kirkpatrick. My joke is that they must go to bars and recruit people. We need better candidates!

      Not only do we have a problem with carpetbaggers coming from other states, we also have a problem with the regular U.S. fake news and— TELEMUNDO!

      I have looked at the COVID Data Dashboard AZ since it started at least twice a week. I have lots of family in other states-and have to say AZ has one of THE best reporting on
      their website. Quite Comprehensive. I think it is a no win situation. Do nothing and people gripe—mask wearing (which I hate) and people gripe. Think we have struck an O.K. balance right now. Check out the Data Dashboard.

      We had a surge. Just this week in just one prison unit–517 inmates tested positive.
      State Prisons cancelled all visitation since the beginning, officers wear masks and go through the song and dance protocols—but still it has reached the prison population. Who knows how it got in to the population. Az has done over one million tests. More tests-more cases. It does seem to be going down though. I always concentrate on the death rate.

      Is it coming from the Snowbirds-the everyday “legal” border crossers who come to work, people going to Mexico for vacations? Who knows.

            Actually, IMHO the REPUBLICAN party in Az., stole the primary from Dr. Kelly Ward, by running Arpio in the primary, as a “splitter” for the Maga vote.

            Neither Kelly or Arpio won (Arpio didn’t even campaign, but pulled enough votes from Kelly, that McSally Rino won the primary, to run against sinalot.

            All the enthusiasm was MAGA, so MAGA stayed home in general, and Sinalot won.

            State RNC tried to get Doozey to give empty seat to McStain progeny, then gave it to McSally.

            The RNC, by and large are,all about the RNC, and keeping the status quo, . .they are RINO, and would rather have a Dem in the seat, than a MAGA.

            So, why shouldn’t I take the same view, …
            I can’t be loyal to a party thats not loyal to me.

            Rinos actively participated in the coup attempt and ongoing efforts to block accountability.

            The participated with Dems in creating EXACTLY the immigration system they wanted; it wasn’t “broken” from their point of view.

            RINOS participated in all of the public policy disasters over many years, ME wars, Obamacare, etc.

            They are the enemy. If an enemy of my enemy is my friend, surely a friend of my enemy is my enemy.

            They are working WITH Dems, and CHI-NA, and AGAINST us.

              As a fellow Arizonan, that was an excellent and accurate analysis in my humble opinion. I don’t see myself voting after this election. I am a Trump voter and not a GOP voter anymore. If he fails to change the system….I am done with it. I know he has a cadre of patriotic Americans working with him, but he is a force like no other and we’ll not see his like again in my life, anyway. But I’m of the opinion that there is no political solution to our problems, I’m banking on a more supernatural source for our chance to right the ship of state.

                As for ‘supernatural’ forces, IMHO THAT is what this is all about.
                In order to show the isrealites were his chosen people, GOD put up a small shepard boy, to represent isreal, while their enemy put up a GIANT, battle hardened warrior, armor clad and experienced.
                Seemed like surely the isrealites would lose.

                Satan spends 100 years, nurturing and fostering this plan for dominating earth, corrupting millions, etc.

                And God picks out one, most IMPROBABLE man, to be his champion; a Billionaire playboy, a little coarse around the edges, a ‘diamond in the rough’;
                Satan and his forces NEVER saw it coming!
                For to laugh, hey?
                We MUST break the grip of the Uniparty, wrest control of the Republican party AWAY from the money changers, in order to right the ship of State.

      But now, we have kept people locked up for close to FIVE MONTHS and no one has any kind of an immune system anymore. I have a friend whose church (in Pennsylvania) complied with EVERY mandate from the Governor and they finally decided to let the youth group have a get together because summer was almost over,,,guess what?

Hospitals get money for positive COVid-19 cases. I expect that they are in cahoots with testing labs, and I imagine TGen benefits somewhere there.

      My hospital & St Louis area hospitals are at capacity now, but not full with covid. The difference between when this first hit & now is the percent who had to be hospitalized or needed ICU. There is a large surge in the number who are testing positive (because many people are being tested, some multiple times). The important metric is hiw many are requiring hospitalization & especially ICU care.
      The task force (which is headed by the same guy who told the President that Mike Flynn lied) said the goal was to “Slow the Spread in Fourteen Days.” The spread has been slowed, the curve has been smashed. Deaths are from the predictable population. Young people who are seriously ill are all with serious underlying health conditions (diagnosed or not).
      I read a story about an 18 year-old who the newspaper article & his family called “perfectly healthy” in Indianapolis who passed away from covid. He was four hundred pounds and a type 1 diabetic in ketoacidosis. His family was obviously not well-educated about his very serious underlying health condition and didn’t do enough to protect him. I will bet he is one in half a million or more. The media is fake. And, the problem of RINOs means we need to purify the stock.
      BTW, I don’t consider Mike Pence a RINO. I consider him a Republican compromise, which can be just as bad. When I look at the consequences of Vice Presidents, I am reminded of Johnson, Ford, & GHW Bush. All disasters for our country, in my opinion.
      What will the consequences of this one be? The Coronavirus Task Force is a terrific opportunity to step up & reign this charade in. It’s a great way to demonstrate actual leadership for the country. If he isn’t doing in now when he has the best opportunity to do so, he won’t if he becomes the resident of our White House.

    (4) Warn all municipalities and states that should they continue to infringe on the above Constitutional liberties, DOJ will do everything in its power to terminate those violations of liberty and prosecute the wrongdoers to the full extent of the law.

    One hundred years ago, America fell under a totalitarian impulse when it amended the Constitution to compel Americans to stop drinking alcohol. The feds got to define what constituted “alcohol.” Then the feds got the Volstead Act to drop the hammer.

    It took nearly 14 years for America to wake from that nightmare and repeal Prohibition — which was not only one of the nuttiest laws ever conceived, but one with perhaps the most long-lasting unintended consequences, chief among them the fantastic expansion of organized crime.

    Americans don’t remember their own history and thus America has learned nothing from that nightmare which began in 1919. Liberty is asleep again in America. The demonRATs have been the catalysts in our current rollback of inalienable rights. The irony is that Republicans have the power to shake America awake again.

    Too bad most of ’em are sleepwalkers.

    Ducey is done. He will never be elected to another position in this state. He single handedly destroyed sections of this state’s economy. Restaurants can sell alcohol yet bars cannot, shutting down all water parks on the very day they were finally to open this summer, with lines of people waiting to get in. Shutting down tubing on the river. Asenine decisions with no rhyme or reason behind them, all because he was getting pressure from the left to close the state based largely on false data. His has become the one name most cursed by everyone I know here.

    The only legitimate info I want to hear is from SD and his (and our) battle to assemble, produce, inform and legitimize the overwhelming EVIDENCE that clearly shows Ovomit and his scumlords (Holder is one scum who should hang) committed TREASON/SEDITION….take your pick.

    The Lou Dobbs interview with our President gave me pause to realize that not ALL journalists are A-holes. Just 95% of them.

      Yep. Trump is fully supporting the shutdowns, the masks, the Marxist Social Distance insanity, the spending of probably $20 trillion we don’t have on this war against the Common Cold.

    I suppose that I understand the game that Trump thinks he has been forced to play with the Chinese virus, but like many others here at Treehouse have expressed, it’s a very tough pill to swallow. I push back every day…..and we need to continue to push while Trump does what he feels is necessary to win in November.
    I’ve struggled with this since March, but I’m not willing to question his political instincts.

    GRRRRRRR, for the life of me I can’t figure out why the Republican Governors, President Trump, and We The People are still buying into this mask fallacy.

    Forget the fact that we are not in flu season, and the virus cannot thrive at a certain humidity/temperature.

    Forget the fact that almost no one except those that have comorbid heath conditions get very sick from Covid-19, (if it exist at all).

    Forget that we have a highly effective prophylactic in Hydroxychloroquine and Zinc.

    All this aside, there is much evidence that not only are mask totally ineffective at stopping the spread of influenza virus, there is evidence that wearing mask can put on at risk of serious health problems.

    I haven’t done it yet, but I plan to do a test whereby I measure my Sp02 level which runs at a consistent 97% bouncing to 98% without mask, then go outside, in Florida summer heat, wear a mask for 30 minutes, and see if indeed my Sp02 level drops to from 5 to 20 (danger zone) points.

    If you haven’t seen this evidence, you should be aware of this.

    At least Ducey wasn’t actively plotting the murders of old people like Cuomo. Remember that Michigan Governor Whitmer? Control FREAK and major MORON. Double coupon Marxist. Stupid and over-bearing. Yuck!

    I can’t believe my eyes as I read this report. Guess the President doesn’t know that there is a full throttle recall petition being circulated on El Duche by Conservative Republicans. Last night his empty suit of a Senator McSally won her primary but she will loose to another democrat come November so because of the both of them Arizona will have two democrat senators.
    Ducey has a major ,if not illegal, conflict of interest. He is on the board of directors of a pharmaceutical company T Gen.it just so happens they make the virus tests and are in the process of developing a vaccine. In the meantime he has banned doctors and pharmacists from dispensing hydroxichlorquine . You can only get it in a hospital by then it’s usually too late.
    Ducey has caved to the socialist democrat female mayors at every turn . He caved to the education establishment and schools are not starting and at best will be virtual. All recreation facilities ,bars,gyms pool Hal’s and I believe churches. Businesses are closing all over the state and major malls are closing. A judge ruled that Ducey has a week to explain why certain businesses have been kept closed. Restaurants are empty And he has let mayors dictate things like masks .
    The funniest thing is that everyone knows Ducey does not even really support Trump. He And his buddy Brix is Handing a load of crap to Trump.
    If my many friends and Trump supporters would throw up if they read this. When Trump acts like this I loose all faith and want to give up. He makes himself like a real uninformed phony .

    As an Arizonan, it makes me want to puke to listen to little lord douchey pat himself on the back while numerous businesses, lives and livelihoods have been decimated by this twerps mandates. He no more represents the people of the state of Arizona than the man in the moon – his ONLY direction has been to close down the state until his investment in a vaccine company can come to fruition and he can make more money on it. He caress NOTHING about the people – only his own pocketbook

    Those businesses that depended on the summer to be profitable were all destroyed by little lord douchey, restaurants, bars, gyms, water parks, pools and so many more have been ruined by his self absorbed mandates and directives. The people of this state are at our end with the BS imposed on us and our businesses – on our rights and freedoms – all manipulated by false positive tests, duplicated numbers and falsified test data to make him look good while all the graft and corruption this POS can muster against the people of this state gets buried in red tape. The money allocated to HELP businesses are more than likely in his packet – it has not nor has it been allocated to those businesses who need it most.

    He has the audacity to sit there and lie bald faced to the President of the United States with a smug grin plastered to his phony face – he is a back stabbing, crrok and phony who wants to garner prestige for a future run at the Senate – he wouldn’t be able to get elected in this state if he applied for a position as pooper scooper in a clown parade – the people of this state hate him that much.

    We voted on Tuesday here in Surprise, AZ (suburb of Phoenix)–it was about 111 degrees and the room was not air conditioned quite enough. They couldn’t find my ballot and told me I had already voted!! I started getting agitated and over-heated so they brought me some cold water and a chair (hey, I’m 75 now). They FINALLY found it (someone had thrown it in the trash)!!

    Before we left Caifornia, I remember Hugh Hewitt made some special trips to AZ to support Gov. Ducey so I already knew he was a RINO. I didn’t join any political groups after moving because I just couldn’t stomach hanging around any McCain supporters.

    Besides the relentless heat, it is depressing to have all our recreation centers shut down. A lot of people are old AND alone and the centers had Yoga and Zoom classes and more ($2 or $3 each), indoor/outdoor swimming pools and jacuzzi’s, fully equipped gyms, evening entertainment, large open areas to sit, read, do puzzles or socialize so now everyone just sits in their houses. One man got on NextDoor and said his wife had died (back when it all started here around February) and he was desperate to just talk to someone (fortunately, he got a LOT of responses).

    The ranges are still open for the most part and certain places are still sit-down with distancing for those who feel ok about that. You can at least take your mask off at your table.

    That about sums it up. You do NOT want to get in a fender-bender in this heat and I always worry when I drive one of our animals to the vet!! (Plus, you have to sit in the car before they take you in and I discovered my old car blows HOT when it’s not moving.)

    Arpaio was on the ballot again, BTW. I’m a so-called “birther” so always loved him and his pressers!
