To my untrained eye, he looks just as shitty as he ever has.
And I disagree. Even as difficult as it is for him to see anything outside of his bubble, he must have some survival skills to have gotten this far in his stupid existence. He won’t grasp at straws until the hounds are baying at the door. He’s not going to risk his life on something unproven, it’s the only thing he cares about.
What he would do is pass along that it’s the cure and then wait to see if it is, or if people die. Since people are dying, I’m quite sure he’s not taking it.
Also, his thing is lying even when the truth would serve him better. He’s pathological. He says he’s taking it = he’s not taking it.
Again, I’ll believe he is when I see it on a coroner’s report. Until then, it’s more bullshit from king bullshitter.
