Trump looks great in his latest video: https://mobile.twitter.com/realDonaldTr ... 2711520257

I’m confident he will beat the Kung Flu.

Lol, I think the fact that he thinks at real school you don't read books tells you all you need to know about Donald trump.

How long would it likely be after showing symptoms before he able to practice the 6ft rule with a mahogany face mask?

Trump is going back to the White House today, that's my opinion but it's starting to look like a self-fulfilling prophecy. I'd put $1000 down that he comes back playing down the whole episode and saying only wuss ass socialists can't recover in 3 days. Maybe $5000.

OMG! That explains it, Trump and his fellow deplorables think you actually need to fight the virus rather than avoid it, I knew there would be some whackos who think you can shoot it but the saying is true, the two things that determine how fast coronavirus spreads are:
1. How dense the population is.
2. How dense the population is.

I hope that they discharge Trump, because clearly that's what he wants.
Once at the White House, he can run around like a monkey infecting his family and friends, his staff, the entire Secret Service. Call campaign meetings and why not, fly with AF1 to rallies across the country.

By the end of the week we shall know if he's going to get away easy or go to intensive care.
Until then, we can ignore his PR drivel.


I think that Pence would be a much better candidate at this stage. If I had to choose between Trump and Biden, I'd pick Biden no doubt, but between Pence and Biden, I don't know.
From what I can see, whatever the US administration did do right in the Covid response were Pence initiatives and Pence does seem to take it seriously.
So far, he has been the only close ally of Trump's smart enough to avoid a Covid positive verdict.
At this stage, Trump dropping dead may be the best thing that could happen to the Republican party (as well as the entire US).

Either way, unless Trump dies, he will be in power until at least January.
That's not a good thing for America.

I'd say the true irony, and not the mild variety, is that Trump is receiving the best possible medical the Unites States has to offer at the very symbol of socialized medicine in the United States. It don't get any more gummint-run or gummint-funded than Walter Reed.

Well, he is going back home and every one in the WH is testing positive. I wonder what the strategy here, contract virus to gain sympathy. Were the machines not calibrated properly?

What are the chances that Trump will leave hospital to demonstrate his superhumanity, go downhill after a few days (as happens to quite a few mere mortals with this disease) and end up needing more medical care in the near future - this time given on the quiet in the WH?

Acceptance of these facts is unfortunately politically driven. Rational people know that while very likely not fatal it is better to avoid getting COVID-19.

President Trump has fought against a scientific response and politicized masks against the interest of public health every step of the way.

Dude should have sold MAGA Masks in April but he was too busy encouraging people to risk dying for minimum wage.

Pretty obvious they spent those three days he spent at the hospital to install a full fledged ICU with all bells and whistles in the white house. Of course the docs know he's in the early stage and the tough part is yet to come, but of course they're not allowed to say that.
Trump's administration is all about saving face and looking strong to its followers, which was also massively pronounced by the various statements to the press by the medical team. It was 100% scripted, first deny he needed oxygen, then after someone on the inside leaked the info confirm it later in the next press briefing.
You just can't take anything coming from anyone taking orders from Trump as a fact, they merely parrot what he told them to.
We'll only know he's really going critical if we don't hear or see anything from him for several days.

The good thing is that now everyone can see that COVID is nothing to worry about. People can return to normal routines and just get back to doing things and not worry.

Trump has proven, he himself did the heavy lifting here to show how easy it is and that with just a few hundred's of thousands of dollars of the highest level of treatment and care and access to experimental and the newest forms of treatment, anyone can recover quickly from COVID.

Everything is OK.

The campaign trail is quite intense and exhausting. Especially for a 74 year old man.
I fear that it will do no good at all to an older convalescing covid patient like himself...

This campaign is honestly turning into a contest of which semi-senile geriatric survives until the end.
At this rate, one of the camps might have to weekend-at-bernie's their guy to the finish line.

I honestly don't wish the man ill but I don't think he's doing himself any favors and in fact I think his actions will create more problems.

We'll see of course and he's going to have the best possible care and treatment they can do in the White House.

Geez, what a brave guy huh? "Don't fear the virus, it's nothing really... be like me and have no fear and rip those masks off!"

How easy to do when you have a world leading hospital in your own home, and a helicopter at the ready to lift you to a leading medical facility, where you will get any treatment known to exist and then some at top speed and priority, for free. It almost seems North Korean like, but what makes it truly North Korean is the entire Inszenierung during his hospital stay, all that was missing was the white horse and the photoshopped chest. I really would like to hear from supporters of this cheap show how they can justify the criminal words of this man asking people to take unnecessary risks when no one will have remotely his type of treatment at the ready when their risky behavior leads to trouble.

I think that the best thing for all would be for this man to become incapacitated by the virus for the duration or to succumb to it. He has the capacity to bring more death or less death to the American (and, indirectly, world) population and has chosen the path of more death.

Pretty obvious they spent those three days he spent at the hospital to install a full fledged ICU with all bells and whistles in the white house. Of course the docs know he's in the early stage and the tough part is yet to come, but of course they're not allowed to say that.
Trump's administration is all about saving face and looking strong to its followers, which was also massively pronounced by the various statements to the press by the medical team. It was 100% scripted, first deny he needed oxygen, then after someone on the inside leaked the info confirm it later in the next press briefing.
You just can't take anything coming from anyone taking orders from Trump as a fact, they merely parrot what he told them to.
We'll only know he's really going critical if we don't hear or see anything from him for several days.


I see a "Presidential health disclosure act" in the near future.

The White House is now a bigger Covid Hotspot than all of New Zealand.... and instead of seeming strong he currently projects a clear "I don´t care about anyone".

Actually the steroid treatment he’s on is enough to send any normal person into manic episode fits. Can only imagine the magnification factor in someone with NPD.


Well, he clearly has a "I am now immune, so I don't have to show even a little caution anymore" attitude now....

A far bigger question is why the Medical personell at the hospital allows the President to leave in his condition. He is clearly not well and certainly not ready to continue as president in his condition. Highly suspect by the doctors.

The thing is, as much as doctors can advise against leaving a hospital, they can't actually stop you. Do you really think Trump, of all people, is going to listen to a doctor?

"Don't be afraid" said the maskless Trump. The families of 215,000 dead Americans (and counting) might disagree.

And why does he keep lying about a vaccine "coming momentarily"? :banghead:

He is desperate for a vaccine to come before the election so he can tell everyone it was thanks to him... You can bet his administration is harassing the FDA and every pharma company out there to come up with one before election day.
He doesn't even care if it's effective or safe, as long as it's there for him to take credit from, just like his buddy Putin did.

It's the patient's decision and medical staff cannot force a patient to stay unless for some psychiatric illnesses of certain severity.

I am sure there are public health risk laws to keep a contagious patient in away from the public. I think Fauci shouldn't open his mouth on TV. He said after 10 days from the offset of symptoms, one is not contagious anymore. Dr. Sure CanLie using Fauci's statement to justify his release.

Anyway it is only a matter of time we lose one or more CNN anchors, they cannot take this anymore.

Please do not blame the medical staff at the hospital. It is alone the "patient decision" to leave the hospital, the hospital staff can not do anything,
It is only one thing: It is highly suspect by the patient, who is ignoring any quarantine rules. But as in all autocracies, the autocratic "leader" can do everything.

In the United States? I know we have it, because quarantine violators have been arrested and looked up in an Hotel, invoice to follow.....

Yup, three decades in isolation should just about see Trump off.

That was the first thing that crossed my mind when I saw the video with the cheesy music of the helicopter landing and then later taking off at the end with Trump saluting on the balcony.

Certainly was an element of sub North Korean 'strongman', (always an oxymoron), in this risible display.

As a doctor who has COVID patients, technically I can't hold them in the hospital against their will. That being said, the overwhelming majority of my patients admitted with COVID are sane people and would not leave against my advice.

As a physician "Typhoid Trump" is infuriating me even more than usual. The carelessness and flippant attitude that he treats his diagnosis is appalling and dangerous to those who think this disease is "overblown."

I want to have the bear riding propaganda picture of Trump as seen for Putin, please! As we are already down to such a low propaganda quality level...
