I have a feeling a lot of people are going to start thinking the cure actually is worse than the problem starting this morning.
Trump even made a snide comment about Biden wearing a mask to the debate.

Interestingly, there are some people suggesting that Trump does not have COVID. It is a calculation to avoid the next debate and/or an opportunity for him to come out saying he has fully recovered and it wasn’t a big deal. I guess when you lie all the time people start to not believe you and think you have an ulterior motive.
Who are these people and why are they such idiots? :lol:
Thanks. Crazy there are people like that out there.
There are now people saying he's doing worse than he's saying. Does that cancel out those that are saying he doesn't have it? \:D/

If he is referring to another debate, I highly doubt that Trump is concerned about the next debate🤦‍♂️😂😂😂
So you have this virus that is super super scary. So dangerous we're better off closing businesses and schools as our only way to combat it. The POTUS says that himself and his wife, and others in his circle have contracted this very terrifying virus. And people are going to claim that he's making it up to solve "immediate problems"? And not that he was just another American in the long line of Americans in peril? Am I understanding this correctly?
I am guessing that you directed this comment toward iaa and his posting of the Don Winslow tweet?

Have not heard about the homeless population being decimated by the virus. Most of them don't social distance, wear masks, talk behind plexiglass, use hand sanitizer, or wash their hands throughout the day. If this is as contagious & fatal as a majority of you believe, why is this segment of the higher risk populace seemingly not highly effected?

He points out the things people don't want to hear. But ask Galileo how he was treated when he suggested the earth was round.

The press asked if Trump is being treated with Hydroxychloroquine. His doctor said NO. 😂

Trump's little car ride sure didn't impress many people:

“This is insanity,” tweeted Dr. James P. Phillips, an attending physician at Walter Reed who has often criticized Trump and his handling of the pandemic. “Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary presidential ‘drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die.”

“He’s not even pretending to care now,” an agent who requested anonymity told The Washington Post.

"That should never have happened," another unidentified agent, who works in both the presidential and first family detail, told CNN. "The frustration with how we're treated when it comes to decisions on this illness goes back before this though. We're not disposable."

Agents are authorized to decline requests that would place the president at risk, but not those that would put themselves at risk.

Seems like a win-win for Trump. Everyone was wearing masks. Those have been said to be THEE most important tool to fight the virus. The end all be all. His staff was wearing masks, and more importantly Trump was wearing a mask. After all, it's not about protecting yourself, but those around you. It's patriotic! I'd say if this is true the passengers in the car were in little to no danger at all.

If any of them DO come down with the virus, Trump will have a heyday with that as well. His followers would cling to it for months. Why wear masks if they don't work?

To be clear, I'm wearing a mask as I type this. #-o But I don't see a way this ends up bad for the POTUS. Aside from those on the other side, but they'd hate his decisions regardless so he probably wasn't considering them! :lol:
