    What a comeback! Everyone was hating on covid and now the world is rooting for it. You go little virus! Contracting covid is the best thing Trump has done. I hope he is not lying again.

    Remember that Trump is in “astonishly excellent” health and that he is the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency” so I am sure there is nothing to worry about.

    This’ll turn out badly no matter how it goes, no matter how you want to look at it. He beats it, then he’s the greatest ever and Corona isn’t that bad, just like he said. It kills or cripples him, he’s a martyr and we will never, ever, ever, ever, ever hear the last of that idiot, even in death*. He lied about it, presumably to effect scenario 1 and to create a distraction from his last distraction (…). Everything in between is just a variation on a theme.

    *Is it strange to think that it would be nice if, some day, all Trump might amount to is a headline and a short-lived news topic as “former US president dies” and that’s it, for good? The standard forgotten-celebrity treatment, where everyone gasps in surprise because they hadn’t realised he was still alive. You know, as an alternative future to n more years of daily front pages containing at least one headline with Trump somethingsomething mouthfoot disaster?

    Reginald Selkirk @6: IIRC that letter also said all Trump’s tests were positive. Well, so was this one.

    Kellyanne Conway announces she tested positive for coronavirus

    Senator Thom Tillis Tests Positive for COVID-19 After White House Rose Garden Event
    Never heard of him, but he is Republican so he must be a horrible person.

    Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT), another member of the Judiciary Committee, has also tested positive.

    Tweets wishing for Trump’s death violate Twitter policy, company says
    Really? All the horrible, vicious tweets he has made, and just hoping he falls victim to a natural disease is verboten?

    Trump is receiving at least two coronavirus therapies: Regeneron antibodies and Remdesivir, so we don’t have to listen to any stories about how his recovery is due to his being so tough and manly.

  7. komarov says

    “so we don’t have to listen to any stories about how his recovery is due to his being so tough and manly.”

    Better brace yourself for disappointment on that score. But depending on whether Trump has money invested in either or both therapies we’ll get to hear lots of miracle cure advertisments by the President of the United States -again. And how incredibly heatlhy, manly and whatnot the guy is.

    Actually, stock in the responsible company/ies might not be the worst idea right now. If Trump survives, however coincidental, that’s going to be quite a boon to those companies. Not because of the man, just his celebrity.
