This video suggests a rational method to take on Trump 2020.

To counter his appeal to negative emotions we will need to bring substance and meaningful solutions to the people.

Doctor Charged With Fraud After U.S. Says He Sold Treatment as '100 Percent' Cure for Covid-19

Crazy as it may seem, this Trump inspired business was only a concern to the FBI because of a claim of 100% cure! From the article:

"But the case, Assistant U. S. Attorney Robert Huie said, is about the 100 percent curative claims made about the medication.

“Our case is not about the doctor touting drugs,” Mr. Huie said in a phone interview on Friday. “It’s not about whether drugs are good or bad, it’s about him telling patients, telling would-be customers, in an effort to sell his services, that what he’s offering is a 100 percent cure and it confers temporary immunity.”

The doctor, Jennings Ryan Staley, 44, a licensed physician and the owner of Skinny Beach Med Spa in San Diego, was charged with mail fraud on Thursday for his role in selling “Covid-19 treatment packs” that included the medications hydroxychloroquine and azithromycin, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of California said in a statement. Mr. Trump has promoted hydroxychloroquine as a “what have you got to lose” remedy.

The treatment packs were billed as a “concierge medicine experience,” and retailed “at $3,995 for a family of four, that included among other things access to Dr. Staley,” the two medications, and “anti-anxiety treatments to help you avoid panic if needed and help you sleep,” prosecutors said.

Skinny Beach Med Spa, which offered a range of beauty-related services such as Botox, hair removal, and fat transfer, started advertising the packs in late March, prosecutors said. An investigation was opened after F.B.I. agents received a tip.
