First and foremost, we do not wish Covid-19 on anyone, even Donald Trump. Hopefully, the virus will mildly impact him, and he will not suffer the serious impacts of having Covid-19.
However, with that said Donald Trump is now in quarantine. The Washington Post reports:
“Trump’s early morning announcement marked an extraordinary turn for the first family, coming little more than a month before Election Day and as Trump has escalated his campaign pace in an effort to catch Democratic nominee Joe Biden, who leads in national and key state polls. Trump, aides, and voters say, trails largely because of his handling of the virus, which has dominated voters’ attention along with the economic collapse caused by pandemic shutdowns.
The virus could further challenge Trump’s reelection bid, because advisers were hoping to close the gap in upcoming weeks with an aggressive travel schedule and a message that the coronavirus had largely passed.”
This latest news shows that the virus has not largely passed, that it is dangerous, and people are still getting infected. Think about how many people Donald Trump may have infected. Think about how Donald Trump contracted the virus.
(The Washington Post) “Since late Tuesday, Trump has appeared with thousands at a rally in Minnesota, debated Biden onstage and has interacted with a coterie of aides and political advisers at the White House. There was no immediate answer from Biden’s camp as to whether he had been tested.
After White House officials learned of Hicks’s symptoms, Trump and his entourage flew Thursday to New Jersey, where he attended a fundraiser at his golf club in Bedminster and delivered a speech. Trump was in close contact with dozens of other people, including campaign supporters, at a roundtable event.
The president did not wear a mask Thursday, including at the events at his golf course and on the plane, officials said. He was tested after he returned to the White House, but he also appeared on Sean Hannity’s TV show from the residence by telephone.
Two people who spent time with him said he did not show noticeable symptoms and was in an upbeat mood, though he acknowledged to other aides later Thursday that Hicks was ill.”
How will this impact Trump’s view on the virus? It probably depends on how ill he becomes and how quickly he recovers. However, even though he contracted the virus, and he may have infected others, is there any chance he concedes he was wrong?
Donald Trump’s view of the virus depends on how quickly he recovers and how the virus impacts him. He will ignore others if they become sick focusing on his recovery and the virus’s impact on his health. He will then claim the virus is no big deal, if he recovers without any significant impact on his health and on the health of his family.
In any event the Covid hoax has now infected the Donald and his wife, not to mention the many others who encountered a man who has flouted safety measures and has lied about the virus and its impact.
The Denier in Chief has Covid-19. Unfortunately, the only way he may concede the seriousness of the virus is if he, or Melania become seriously ill.
