¬†So...how long before he calls Fox and commandeers their show with self-pity that this happened to him? ūüėĚ


Yeah I also wondered theoretically if he could have intentionally infected himself to gain pity/sympathy. But wouldn't he see pity/sympathy as a sign of weakness?  I don't know. I shouldn't try to analyze his narcissistic brain -  I have better things to do with my time.

I think he sees it as a weakness in other people, but not him.

I said similar.  I think it's an attempt/ploy to get the election delayed.  I don't put one thing past this administration at this point.  They're not below trying anything.

I feel like a lot of people don't grasp the level of delusion that Trump lives in. He didn't intentionally infect himself. He thinks he's invincible. He thinks he has really good genes and the biggest best brain. He simply didn't care about the virus because he wanted his rallies. Even now he must be fairly symptomatic to even admit it on Twitter.

 

Meanwhile this has me cracking up.

The way Don was SCREAMING during the schittshow masked as a debate, I hope Joe wasn't exposed.  :( 

 

I hope so, too.  But, Joe Biden is in pretty good shape for a man his age.  Which is more than we could say about our current (and now ill) commander-in-chief.

It is not a master plan, lol. Dude has it. Got it from Hope Hicks.

 

That may be true.  But, you have to admit, the timing is awfully suspicious.

 

I don't always show it, but I am a Christian, and I believe there's power in the tongue.  So, if Trump IS lying about testing positive, then he better be very, very careful.  Because, he could speak COVID-19 upon himself...or something worse.

At first I was I don't care, you brought it on yourself. It could have been avoidable. What if this is a lie to distract? Then I read:

To paraphrase Mark Twain; I have never wished COVID on any man. But I have read some medical reports with great pleasure.

What glorious news to wake up to. At least this means no more debates. I was dreading the next one because it was in Miami and DeSantis has pretty much turned that state into a COVID killing field. I now officially want Joe to return to his basement. I know he likes retail politics but enough is enough. The weather is getting cooler and inside spread is going to get worse.

 

I just can't with the idea that this helps him. I'm seeing people talk about how this could get him sympathy votes as if that's even a thing.

THIS.

Well, Threefold Law is nothing to play with.

I was sitting here trying to think if COVID had been around during W's time as President (and after "heckuva job, Brownie" and the disastrous Iraq invasion I don't necessarily believe he would have done any better). Would I have felt sorry for him? Would I have thought he was lying?

 

To be honest, I'm not sure, which is sobering, because it makes me realize just how long I have had no trust or empathy with the government that runs my country. 

 

These people - all of them - are absolute monsters. Trump, that self-loathing Ronna person, the whole bunch, went around the country exposing and infecting people, being dishonest and delusional about what they were carrying with them the whole time. 

 

I was reading Carole Callawadr's tweets, warning about the likely boost to Trump after what happened with Boris Johnson, and she mentioned the Asian-Americans who will likely be attacked because of today's news. It made my blood run cold. We are that far gone as a country, with seemingly no going back.

He's done crazy things all along, I still think it's a stunt.  Either way I'd love to see him in jail for tax evasion after this with no access to CVS makeup.  

 

And they could do virtual debates but I hope they don't.  But if they do they can use the mute button to shut him up when his turn is over.

It's not a stunt, lol. Trump is a germaphobe. He hates appearing physically weak. To him the appearance of strength is everything, hence his fake crackpot doctor claiming he is super healthy and fit when he first took office. This runs counter to all of that. He's already symptomatic. And this has sent his WH and the GOP into even more chaos, which is the opposite of what they need a month before Election Day.

 

Y'all need to get this vision in your heads of Trump the master schemer pulling the strings out of mind - he has never been that. Ever. He's just an idiot. I know it might be more comforting to imagine he's some secret evil genius based on everything we've been through that he has wrought on America, but a supervillain didn't do it. A fool did.
