They didn't notify any of the members on the press who were on Air Force One, nor any of the people at the debates, etc.

They are brazen criminals.

JUST IMAGINE if this was Biden and he didn't tell the Trumps. Benghazi on steroids.

The Trump admin, the campaign, and the GOP are the super spreaders

Well you can tell by her Handmaid's Tale Christmas decor that she doesn't give a fuck about Christmas. Stay classy Melania. She's a fraud dressed in very high priced clothing. And a birther.

Much worse was what she said about the families at the border. Even though her own parents reportedly became citizens via questionable means. And who knows about her.

She came in under the so-called Einstein visa. An "individual of extraordinary ability."

So hopefully everyone else in attendance at the debate is negative from this, which will only serve to help Biden even more and demonstrate further that masks really do make a difference. This would counter any so-called sympathies thrown the President's way.

this should put to rest the obvious lie that some rogue stylist put that "i don't care do u" jacket on her for the border visit without her being aware of what it said on the back.

A couple things. First. Boris did not have a rally around the flag moment. Not sure where the person that tweeted this got it. But there were other decisions and factors that came about a week before Johnson got Covid that boosted the support/view of government. It then declined slowly after while he had Covid.

https://mobile.twitter.com/YouGov/st...58523912294401

On another note. There is one possible way that Trump could benefit here. But he is mentally and emotionally unable to do this so, the Covid diagnosis is only going to hurt him.

He could come out now and say - I was wrong about my approach to the virus. Masks do stop the spread, social distancing is necessary and apologize to all my supporters for holding rallies that might have put them at risk.

Something like that. But there is zero chance of this. And from all reports, the WH is in complete panic, and have said that him testing positive will only remind people of how he downplayed the virus and told people not to wear masks. Quote - "it is a political disaster"

And please note. These are the same people that called Trump's church teargassing a big win.

That likely hasn't happened since Barron's conception. She really looks like she thinks the same about Donnie as she does Christmas.

Good on him. This is what actually owning and standing by your words looks like, people. I'm glad he's not apologizing for what he said.

As for THE big news story this morning...

Boris Johnson had not spent 6 months openly mocking the virus before he was infected. Trump's brand is built on it.
This. If it turns out he lied about having this, knowing how many people in this country have gotten sick with and died from it, that'd be a line he could never come back from. His cult would shrug it off, sure, but the rest of the country would just add that to their ever-growing list of reasons to get him out of here. That would be a level of sheer cruelty and callousness that there'd be no words to adequately describe.

So a Covid infection would create a path out of it: Claim the infection impaired his health with long-term consequences and it would render him unable to govern for a second term.
I was just sharing this same theory elsewhere earlier. Yep. He loves to bluster and talk tough, but he always backs down like a coward when push comes to shove (look how he tried to act like a big tough guy in his tweets a few years back where he was bragging about how he'd destroy North Korea and everything. Now he gets "love letters" from Kim Jong-Un). I can easily see him using this as a means to quietly slip out.

(And then he'd also probably spend that time trying to arrange an escape to another country to avoid prosecution. Hopefully, if he tried that, that part of his plan wouldn't work.)

This. See, people, THIS is why lying about stuff like the crowd size at your inauguration, or other seemingly "unimportant" things of that sort, matters. Because when you're lying about any and everything, no matter how small, it makes it that much harder to trust you when it comes to the important stuff.

These people are the worst trash in the world.
Yep. And yet we've got people out there who are mad that we're not showing any sympathy for Trump over this. It's hard to be sympathetic towards someone who didn't give a shit about a virus that killed so many, or who's shown a complete and total lack of compassion and sympathy towards people in any other times of crisis.

Treat others like you want to be treated, people. It's really that simple.

Hmmmm... Would have hoped for a better showing from Dems on this in early voting. Concerning.

Wait why are they all sympathetic and praying if this is a nothingburger of a virus?
