The irony. I'm hoping he goes the way of Prince Prospero.

I think the irony would be if he dies from it after constantly downplaying the severity of it. I believe he is also blood type O, which shows the least effects of the virus.


But really, at this point, with the mountain of lies he tells, I'm not even sure I can actually believe him, even if does say he has tested positive for it.

I assume it's probably truthful, since I don't really see what he'd gain from lying about this. Regardless, I'm sure we'll receive more concrete confirmation one way or the other soon enough.

After the debate debacle, I can give two more reasons. No more debates. I can see him holding a national address from the oval office, where he can rant unchallenged and get more public attention.


Or that he got cured by a miraculous vaccine.


There are a lot of reason why he could be lying about it, and try to use it for some personnel/political gain. God knows how many people around him have tested positive, while still going from state to state to spread it at each Trump rally they went to. Why would he give a shit at this point to self isolate for 14 days, a month before the election?

You make a good case. However, the Whitehouse physician just confirmed the positive test result, which makes me feel pretty sure this is legit.

Obviously both debates are now off, and trump can't hold anymore rally's / public events to turn his luck around, which is bad.


But this also makes him kinda unattackable right now because any attacks would be in bad faith, so does this wind up helping him somehow? Ie it gives him more of a sympathy vote? Plus it moves the newscycle on from his terrible debate performance / tax returns.

Given how shittily he handled the spread of the virus, it was only a matter of time before he got himself sick. Not gonna lie, the schadenfreude is cathartic.


Even with the most thorough daily testing of each of his contacts, he still got sick...


...which is also why the idea that the "vulnerable should be shielded" from the virus is bunk. If major world leaders can't do it, what hope is there for the average joe?

Imagine the President, of very old age and poor health gets Covid, but survives. Hes now living "proof" that it's a hoax.


I'm assuming this isn't true. I just have a hard time believing anything from this administration.


Even the tweets talking about how they'll recover just like most others are doing. It all sounds like a script to a mediocre and poorly written story.

Wish him the best with his upcoming bleach treatment.

We are talking about a guy who dictated to his former doctor to say that he was in "extraordinary health".

And how many times have we seen Trump force White House officials to say or promote something that was patently false?


I am going to remain skeptical, unless he dies.

They better tread lightly though because if they go at it too hard it could backfire on them. In fact the majority of posts about it on Twitter are people celebrating it and hoping he dies.

They better not forget Biden was in the same building / on the same stage as him just a couple days ago.

Biden just tested negative. If he keeps it that way, the election has been pretty much been given to him like candy.


Trump on the other hand just better continue with his hydroxychloroquine and bleach injections. We'll see what happens, as he likes to say.

I am reminded of a prediction I made almost 4 years ago: If Trump was facing a tough election, or things weren't going his way, he would try to run away through some means (with one of the reasons being illness) rather than facing the humiliation of defeat.

You forgot his claims over UV light treatment inside the body. Knowing Trump, he would probably opt for it to go up his rear rather than his pie whole.

Why do so many celebrities and public figures seem to get this (and mostly all recover btw), yet I know not one person who has been hospitalised by this?

Probably because of government actions and regulations that have slowed the spread, and reduced the causalities, by making people social distance and wear a mask, and trying to prevent large gatherings of people, despite some people thinking they are above it and defy all precaution only to show up in the news either through their celebrity status or a statistical number.

It is a problem though because they are making us pay for it and asking people who don't have a virus to wear a mask to "protect people" from a virus they don't have?


It's a massive problem. Have you not seen the state of the economy in between all your kneejerking?


No, it didn't. Even the officials there now realize it was a very bad mistake.

I'm gonna exercise my right to disagree with you entirely there because you literally grabbed an article from TWO MONTHS BEFORE the herd immunity model has been proven to work.

Masks + social distancing = tyranny + bad economy = higher death casualties and bad health = mask + social distancing = bad economy. Rinse and repeat. The only thing that people who think that this is all tyranny over nothing are only just extending it and making it worse, health wise and financially.


And you can still get it again, if you had a very mild case of it - because you don't have effective antibodies.


Experience suggests that severely infected COVID-19 patients acquire antibodies immediately and during early recovery, but antibodies are much less common in only mildly ill or asymptomatic patients. This means they are likely not immune, and can't prevent the spread of the virus, the study noted. This is central to the concept of herd immunity.

*sigh


Your article is saying that some people in certain countries are flirting with the idea, but they also realize it's going to lead to more causalities and chronic health problems. It didn't say that Sweden's model was a success, or that their economy won't still suffer


And I'm not sure what alternate reality your brain is on, but I never said I didn't want a cure. I have always supported basic precautions, medical studies, and medication and vaccines that will cure it or lesson the health effects of it.
