They released a video of him saying thank you. Probably most sincere he’s ever sounded.

Walked slowly to the helicopter.

He has fever, fatigue, and a cough.

Cough would be most troubling as once it’s lodged in respiratory system, especially his age, covid can just wreck you.

Herman Cain seemed like he was doing ok after going to hospital and then poof, he was gone.

Those still “working” for the government better be prepared for other countries to try and take advantage

Trump's "enduring" this because of his own stupidity and arrogance, but okay, Eric, whatever you say.

And I'm sure the loved ones of the 200,000 plus people who've died from this virus would have a few things to say about this supposed "strength and conviction that he uses to fight for America every day", too.

They are brazen criminals.

JUST IMAGINE if this was Biden and he didn't tell the Trumps. Benghazi on steroids.
Hideous, reckless endangerment territory behavior!

Too mild a metaphor...
it'd be more like Benghazi strapped to a rocketship!

Not much transparency about his health.
I dunno, imho him not tweeting for this length of time seems like he feels pretty lousy.

Yes. Jail time. After some serious suffering for all the blood on his hands.

I agree with this but knowing what justice he’s dodged for 50+ years, I’d settle for just the landslide loss. Then this mean little voice in the back of my head asks “why even take *that* chance?” and I start to consider the comorbidities again.

From Nate Silver.
And HarrisX has Biden +7 nationally, vs +5 before (generally one of Trump's stronger polls). On average, a Biden gain of 2 points vs. the previous editions of the same polls. All post-debate but before the president's COVID-19 diagnosis.

So Trump's awesome debate performance looks like an average gain for Biden of +2 nationally.

Most polls landed around the 7-10 point range with 2 seemingly outlier polls at +3 and +13.

What Trump has had to “endure” - Jesus Christ, these people are delusional beyond belief.

Really great too how this is just like a flu, ordinary spring, yet 5 minutes after testing positive, Trump gets an experimental antibody infusion and runs off to be hospitalized. The rest of you, figure it out for yourselves. Trump voters really are idiot suckers.

Trump campaign indicates it will not join
@JoeBiden
in pulling negative ads.

“Joe Biden used his speech in Michigan today to attack President Trump. He’s in no position to say anything,"

I listened to the Michigan speech. He did not attack Trump. He stated job loss and covid stats for the most part.

On the one hand, I get the Biden campaign pulling their ads. It'll be a good reminder for voters of the stable, compassionate alternative to the insanity and cruelty that is this administration. Plus, there's only about a month left to go until the election, people are already voting as it is, and I doubt there's really much else they could say or do to further convince people to vote for them at this point. It seems pretty clear that the vast majority of Americans have already made up their minds by now, and if the Trump campaign is hoping this will bring them sympathy from any voters that aren't part of his base, I think they're fooling themselves. Just look at how many people have spent the day a) mocking Trump for getting sick and even outright celebrating it, or b) questioning whether or not they can believe he's actually sick.

On the other hand, considering Trump's campaign's refusing to back down, and considering how they pulled no punches both in 2016 and now, I also totally get and can't disagree with the whole, "Screw being polite and classy, just let him and the party have it" attitude, too. As I said above, he brought this sickness on himself, and it's a sickness he's put others at risk of getting, and he's still got a ton of damage and death on his hands. We shouldn't ignore al of that in some admirable yet iffy decision to be "polite and respectful". People were cheering Biden for finally telling Trump to shut up at the debate the other night, so I don't think many would complain too much here, either.

For our history buffs out there - what is the closest to an election that a president has passed away? Not saying it will happen but just thinking out loud here

Ha, yeah, I've seen a tweet going around today basically saying similar things about her.

For anyone who's curious, by the way, this article gives a good overview of what would happen going forward if worse came to worse with Trump:

Bigger picture has our country been in such deep shit since what, Cuban Missile Crisis ?

The POTUS is infected with a deadly virus. The US Gov has been auctioned off and whatever is left is run by complete morons and suck ups.

We have Mike Pence next in line, but even scarier is that Jared has basically been the acting President for years.

Our guard isn’t even down, it’s non existent.

And we haven’t even hit colder temps yet and a second wave

Kellyanne Conway also attended that Rose Garden event. Her daughter posted on Tik Tok today that Kellyanne is “coughing all over the house”.
