Coronavirus is making some people very, very sick and making others very, very stupid.
Nurses working in the COVID response wing of INTEGRIS hospitals in Oklahoma are complaining that they have been banned from protecting themselves by any means necessary from the disease while treating infected patients.
As most of America is well aware, proper hospital supplies are drawing scarce as the 24/7 effort to heal ailing people grows more difficult every day. One nurse who spoke to KFOR under the condition of anonymity said she fears losing her job for speaking out by she fears getting sick even more.
“Now there’s just a massive overwhelming feeling of distrust,” one nurse told KFOR. “If they’re not willing to protect our lives at a fundamental level, what are they willing to do?”
She went on:
“Friday afternoon, I called my financial investment guy and I doubled my life insurance policy. Just because I have kids at home,” the nurse said. “If it’s a forgone conclusion that I will be positive at some point, I don’t have the kind of guarantee that I will be OK.”
That’s how bad Donald Trump the federal legion of bootlickers have let this pandemic get. Parents are bolstering plans to support their children after their untimely demise. S#!ts f***ed up.
When questioned about these accusations, Chief Nurse Executive at INTEGRIS Health Kerri Bayer said this:
“All caregivers have been provided appropriate PPE to take care of their patients safely based on their care setting. At this time, we have not supported utilization of PPE that is not medical grade unless it has been approved and deemed safe by the INTEGRIS System Incident Command. We understand there is concern and real fear surrounding COVID-19, therefore our clinical and infection prevention teams are actively discussing a solution to expand PPE usage for our caregivers.
We are providing PPE to our caregivers that provides evidence-based protection while they provide care. At this time, we have not supported utilization of PPE that is not medical grade unless it has been approved and deemed safe by the INTEGRIS System Incident Command.
Our number priority, always, is the safety of our patients and caregivers. This stands true in the face of a pandemic more than ever.
The masks being provided to patients and their families are the hand-sewn masks donated from the community. These are not medical grade and therefore not approved for use by our caregivers.”
Somebody got some ‘splaining to do. There are other hospitals in the area being accused of this same practice. Read the whole story on KFOR.

Season four of THE GOOD FIGHT finds Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart navigating a very different landscape. After they lost their biggest client, Chumhum, and their founding partner’s name was tarnished, Reddick, Boseman & Lockhart was forced to accept an offer by a huge multi-national law firm, STR Laurie, to become a small subsidiary. Suddenly, all of their decisions can be second-guessed by the giant firm that is literally on top of them. While STR Laurie initially seem like benevolent overlords, we find Diane Lockhart and her colleagues chafing at their loss of independence while simultaneously investigating the emergence of a mysterious “Memo 618.”
The cast of THE GOOD FIGHT includes Christine Baranski, Cush Jumbo, Audra McDonald, Sarah Steele, Michael Boatman, Nyambi Nyambi, Zach Grenier, John Larroquette and Delroy Lindo. Hugh Dancy also joined season four in a recurring role.
Today is Molly Qerim’s birthday and we couldn’t let it go by without celebrating.
The famed sports anchor, First Take moderator, and wife to former NBA player Jalen Rose turns 36 years old today and she couldn’t be more beautiful or accomplished. In case you weren’t aware, Molly’s got her BA in communications with a minor in business administration, her master’s in broadcast journalism, was an anchor and reporter for CBS, has hosted several shows (Full Court Press, the World MMA Awards, ESPN’s College Football Live, and more), and has covered several Super Bowls. The list goes on.
We love that Molly’s not above letting folks know she worked hard to get where she is.
“Obviously, I’m a female in sports. You work really hard, you prep really hard, you put a lot into the show, so when you have certain comments, and people are saying, ‘Oh you add nothing,’ or, ‘You got your job because of this.’ Really? Why don’t you look at my master’s degree?,” she’s quoted as saying.
As far as how she got into sports, she also revealed, “I grew up with sports, but I was definitely not good enough to become a professional athlete – I just loved the storytelling aspect of it.”
And in regards to those good genes, you couldn’t guess her secret weapon if your life depended on it… “I’m half Italian, and on my mom’s side, they’ve aged amazingly, and all they’ve put on their faces is olive oil,” she says.
We’ve got love and admiration for Molly, who by the way struggles with severe endometriosis — but still wakes up and chases her dreams. Check out the photos below and join us in wishing her the absolute best in love, life, and health.

If you haven’t seen Netflix’s newest viral sensation Tiger King, you’ve been living under a rock. The memes have dominated every social media platform and quarantine conversation this month, and the hype is only growing by the day.
The show’s biggest star was a man by the name of Joe Exotic, who, like everyone else in the doc, owned pet tigers. The difference between Joe and everyone else, though, is that he was a homosexual male who was married to two young, heterosexual men whom he provided with meth and $100 a week. Outside of cats and meth, he spent the majority of his time on the conspiracy theory that Carole Baskin killed her ex-husband and allegedly tried to have her killed which ended up landing him in jail.
Somewhere in the shocking dump of information on Joe Exotic was a failed political run, where Joe ran for office and didn’t come close to seeing a victory. This made many instantly think of Cheeto-in-Office Donald Trump, and how we as a country let ourselves elect someone just as nutty. Trevor Noah took things a step further and broke it down on The Daily Show, pointing out that the parallels between Joe and Donald might seem funny, but they are a lot closer than most might think: Both are spokespeople for misogyny, racism, and white supremacy, they want to be seen as the person who doesn’t take any s***, and more.
Watch Trevor break down his idea about Joe Exotic and Donald Trump down below:
DNA is a very interesting concept. As humans, we think we can determine how our offspring will look based on how we look, but quite the contrary. Drake released never before seen photos of his son Adonis earlier this week, a woman by the name of Samantha Rushmeyer took to Twitter to show how much her baby boy look like Drake’s son.
But the real gag is, she looks exactly like Drizzy’s baby mama Sophie Brussaux.
Adonis’ baby reveal proved that folks don’t know much about how DNA works. People had lots to say about the baby’s light eyes and blonde hair:
But if you really pay attention, you realize that baby Adonis is Drizzy’s mama’s doppelganger.
Although it’s a ridiculous concept to assume that all people of one race look similar, most of us do have some distant cousins that we may not know about.
