...and he has it (Melania too)! https://www.theguardian.com/world/li...-100000-deaths

I hope he is forced to 'retire' and that Melania is fine in the end.
Funny. This morning, I also first saw a headline that he was quarantining in case he has it. And then I came across the more updated headlines that he has indeed tested positive.

Particularly if he does develop any severe symptoms from it, maybe now he and his supporters will at least take it more seriously.

Karma!

I do not wish anybody harm but I agree with "maybe now he and his supporters will at least take it more seriously".

Really? I hope any pscyhopathic, pathological lying, anti-media and anti-democratic dictator falls victim to something. For Trump to succumb to COVID would be a delicious irony, considering how many innocent deaths were the result of his deliberate lies and inaction. I am keeping my fingers crossed!

There are people who disagree with me, but I don't call them fascists. I think most people who claim to be against "antifa" don't really understand what fascism is or what being "anti-fascist" means.
Being against fascism ≠ Antifa.

And you seriously don't understand how that applies to white supremacist groups, militia groups, etc.?

As a matter of fact, that meme actually very much applies to fascists.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I hope this does not upset too many people here
Quote:
President Trump on Thursday condemned white supremacists, attempting to put to rest an issue that has dogged him since the first presidential debate earlier in the week when he told a far-right group to "stand by."

"I've said it many times, and let me be clear again: I condemn the [Ku Klux Klan]. I condemn all white supremacists. I condemn the Proud Boys.
I don’t know much about the Proud Boys, almost nothing. But I condemn that,"
Trump said on Sean Hannity's Fox News show.

Of course, Trump was probably suffering the first stages of COVID-19 so his decision making was not so good.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

No matter what happens, Trump is going to milk this baby until the udder is depleted.

"I survived Covid19 which proves I'm in perfect health! Biden would be dead by now"

"Covid19 is just like a flu. Don't believe all the negativity about this virus. Let's open up our establishments and make America great again!"

"No more debates. I'm still recovering. (Literally)"

Catching the virus at exactly this time is a smart political move but imagine if it's just another lie? I seriously wish there was concrete evidence he's really got the virus.

Just a perfect (and pre planned re making a point of not wearing mask, etc) - excuse for not having to do something you are truly terrible at, debates and serious interviews. Perfect

I doubt Trump would voluntarily take the loss of face due to catching the virus.

He is at a dangerous age and overweight but will have the best medical treatment in the world so hard to see how it will turn out.
Strange Melania has it since she was not on the flights, so far as I know; they must have been cohabiting.

Be careful what you wish for. If Trump resigns or dies before Election Day, you get President Pence. Trump's base would line up behind Pence, no problem. I think Pence would win in a landslide against Biden just based on age.

This whole election has been like a TV soap opera; it just needs Biden to have contracted the virus from Trump at the debate to put the tin hat on it.

Pence has nothing approaching the same following as Trump, he is devoid of character and presence. If Trump is out of the picture then a big part of his following will fizzle out and the Republicans will begin fighting to usurp him.

Pence and his lady both tested negative today so little chance of Pelosi stepping in - which would have fitted better into my soap opera.

She is much younger than Trump so hopefully not serious.

Re: Trump or Biden .Who you got?

I bet Biden is getting tested today, since he was at the debate with Trump just a few days ago. For that matter, I imagine everyone who was at that debate is probably getting tested today.

When I think about it, I guess it really shouldn't be very surprising that Trump now has the virus, considering how many people he comes into contact with on a daily basis, the fact that they don't social distance and that he usually does not wear a mask. It was really just a matter of time, I suppose.
