Boner Candidate #1: HE’S A FOX NEWS DOCTOR

The Fox News doctor who once said the “worst-case scenario” for the coronavirus was that it “could be the flu” is now boasting of President Donald Trump’s cognitive skills. Dr. Marc Siegel said Trump is “very cognitively advanced,” a conclusion he reached because he spent an hour with the president during an interview last month. That was the infamous interview in which Trump boasted of acing a cognitive test in part by remembering “person, woman, man, camera, TV” in order, ostensibly wowing his doctors in the middle of the exam. “They said nobody gets it in order,” Trump said. “It’s actually not that easy, but for me it was easy.” The test’s inventor last said that it’s “supposed to be easy,” as it’s checking for signs of cognitive impairment, not intelligence. Trump’s description of his assessment became the fodder of memes. But it left Siegel impressed, and he said Trump was “right” to demand a cognitive test of Democratic rival Biden. Siegel also dug into Biden’s medical history, suggesting he could have lingering damage from brain aneurysms years ago and hinted that the former vice president may have suffered a “silent stroke.”

Boner Candidate #2: BECAUSE HE TALKS SCIENCE THAT’S WHY WE’RE OUT TO GET HIM

Dr. Anthony Fauci on Wednesday said he and his family have needed continued security because of harassment and death threats over his statements about the coronavirus pandemic. “Getting death threats for me and my family and harassing my daughters to the point where I have to get security is just, I mean, it’s amazing,” Fauci said during an interview with CNN’s Sanjay Gupta on Wednesday. “I wish that they did not have to go through that.” The nation’s top infectious diseases expert has had his own security detail since at least April, in the face of the mounting threats. Fauci didn’t go into detail, but noted that threats and harassment are part of the “unseemly things that crises bring out in the world,” adding: “It brings out the best of people and the worst of people.” Fauci, 79, also expressed shock that people could be so misguided. “I wouldn’t have imagined in my wildest dreams that people who object to things that are pure public health principles are so set against it, and don’t like what you and I say, namely in the word of science, that they actually threaten you,” he said.
