Re: Trump and first lady test positive for coronavirus

I watched part of todays news conference. So the doctor explained that there was oxygen administered both on Friday and Saturday. He would not give some specific details about condition - not describing what was on the x-ray, and would not divulge aspects of care, such as whether or not Trump was in a negative pressure room.

There are still questions about the course of his virus, when was his last negative test? Days 7-10 are often most critical, and hes at 5. Maybe. Steroids are being administered, but I wonder about his decision making ability on them and whether or not they will need to invoke the 25th amendment. Steroids can make some people crazy.

Trump and his advisers have a lot of control over the release of information, the doctor can only discuss what hes allowed to. Yesterday, Mark Meadows told The NY Times about the administration of oxygen and pissed off Trump.

So its interesting.....what information about their leaders are people entitled to.

Is he getting better? Not sure what to believe. I want him to get better too so there can be an election and aftermath.

Re: Trump and first lady test positive for coronavirus

Wow... And now yet another to add to the list:

Press secretary Kayleigh McEnany announces she tested positive

https://abcnews.go.com/Politics/live..._live_hero_hed

Actually, make that three more. Apparently, Chad Gilmartin and assistant press secretary Karoline Leavitt have also tested positive.

Re: Trump and first lady test positive for coronavirus

Anyone want to guess that even if Pence tests positive at some point, the administration and campaign will never disclose it while Trump is in hospital or recovering?

I doubt they can keep that hidden if it was the case... Pence theoretically has to be the visible face of the administration while Trump is sick.

I agree. I was thinking more that a positive result would have to be leaked because the campaign wouldn't dare to admit such a thing unless Pence was visibly unwell and they had no choice.

Re: Trump and first lady test positive for coronavirus

Trump is supposed to be leaving hospital today, clearly COVID is not as dangerous as touted for an obese old man.

Nice trolling. Please do not continue.

In case you don't understand the basics, Trump has just been treated for three days by a team of 17 doctors and countless nurses, with every imaginable treatment, including several that simply aren't available to the 7 million + Americans infected with the virus—and weren't offered to the 209,000 who have died from it so far.

The man is hopped up on steroids. Hes likely Mining even more bullshit than usual.

Anyway. The families of 210,000 dead Americans plus all the Covid long haulers likely disagree with you.

You were lucky with the course of your illness and your outcome.

I would question if he had it at all, false positives are quite common.

There is that. Of course its one thing for him to be sitting in the White House residence faking covid, but entirely another to have physicians and the rest of the medical staff complicit in the farce.

If everyone could receive the same level of care as he did, perhaps there would be fewer deaths and long haulers.

I would question that not only because of the false positives (or the fact a positive test says very little)

Somebody at NYT or WP counted that he's publicly lied 20'000 times in the last 4 years. That's an average of 13 a day. Why would anything he says now be believable?

I am not saying the test was faked, he tested positive being the President they thought best he goes to hospital. Then leaves 3 days later........ does not add up if he had symptoms & was ill.
Even if he was ill his chance of surviving is still in the region of 95%, thats without the 17 Doctors on hand as 22 yards points out.
