I think Trump is one of those people that are just never affected by anything medically. Like Robert Duvall in "Apocalypse Now". He's a no-energy, no-exercise lard-ass pill-popper (allegedly) but is probably as healthy as a horse.

What a fat orange horse might look like.

Trump has definitely been exposed to it, though.  Whether he develops symptoms and gets sick, who knows.

He's our generation's Typhoid Mary.  Lethal and stupid.  Mary continued to get jobs, even after being educated on the hazards of silent transmission.  Willfully malicious and utterly selfish.

I hope Trump gets it and has a very serious case for two reasons; first is it would get his dumbsh*t followers to wake up and acknowledge this is real and something to be taken seriously and secondly, he deserves it.

They offered to remove her gallbladder. They believed that is where the infection "hid" keeping her infectious but not feeling ill. She refused because she did not believe she had it because she had no symptoms.

Sound familiar?

Him getting it and not dying will just be "evidence" that it's no big deal, so I hope he doesn't have it.

If he gets it and dies, how are they going to switch from thinking it's all fake, to....oh wait, they'll blame the 'deep state,' whatever the hell that is.

On a good note, most of his rabid cult are non-traditional voters. So hopefully they'd just crawl back in their non-voting holes once he's off the ticket.

Trump would have to be hospitalized to force them to admit he had the virus. I keep waiting for him to drop out of the public eye, followed by 2-3 day gap in crazy tweets.

Finish him Coronavirus. Strike him down now and become more powerful than you can possibly imagine...

That would so trigger his base.  They will really ramp up the deep state conspiracy theories and possibly instigate some form of civil war.

Well we'll just have to switch to the Costello test.
 
2020-05-13 1:18:06 PM  
We all correctly assumed he was lying about a positive result anyway, subby.  It doesn't really matter what the test said with this White House, the 'experts' they use are the ones that tried to tell us that a fat, blobby seventy year old man who can't make it through one sentence without displaying clear signs of senile dementia is 'the healthiest man I've ever seen'.  They could have seven separate tests all showing a positive and they'd tell us he was negative regardless.

Honestly, you can nail the truth so consistently by taking whatever the official statement is and assuming the diametric opposite that most of us were assuming that the man has already had it since like early March and just didn't have the bad luck to land in the 5% death rate.

I forget the exact timing, but didn't he have a "mysterious" visit to the doctor that took a couple days for a "checkup" around that time?  Just before all his aides started testing positive?

No, she was given a job that didn't involve cooking for other people.  After a time, she began using a false name so that she could lie to her employers and resume preparing meals for others, which in-turn caused another outbreak in which two more people died.

Yes, including a cottage on North Brother Island, for nearly 30 years.

Or, we could have just used the W.H.O. test that they offered....but no Dotard and company wanted to find a way to profit off of it....so maybe we'll get lucky and a faulty test will take out at least half of them.

I'm rooting for you Karma!

COVID-19 expert: Coronavirus will rage 'until it infects everybody it possibly can'

That means people in the White House aren't going escape it.

/ I have heard rumors that Trump/Pence got antibodies infused from survivors. If that is the case, Trump might not be hit as hard, even though he should be in the high risk category.

Almost.  She was working in a laundry, but it didn't pay as much as cooking, which is why she started falsifying her identity to get work as a cook again.

wademh: ??? exponentially ???


Sure. As social distancing is prematurely lifted, cases will again rise exponentially. Meanwhile, the Abbott test has a constant false negative rate, and thus Trump's risk of exposure rises proportionately to the exponentially rising exposure opportunities.

Or else Subby is not a math person and just meant "a lot."
