Some thoughts:

1. What does this mean for the debates?
2. How will this affect the 2020 race?
3. Will the senate still try to go ahead with the Supreme Court hearings?
4. Will Trump try to campaign?
5. Trump is 74 and obese--how sick will be become?

My sister and I were chatting about this earlier and we started kicking around the idea that this is his way to postpone the election, but then again we realized that would be some QAnon shit and quickly discredited the idea.

The enormous Russia-backed campaign to keep him in office doubtless has all sorts of contingency plans for this.

Some thoughts:

1. What does this mean for the debates?
2. How will this affect the 2020 race?
3. Will the senate still try to go ahead with the Supreme Court hearings?
4. Will Trump try to campaign?
5. Trump is 74 and obese--how sick will be become?

My quick thoughts, and I'm no expert on any of this..
1. It's much more likely that the 2nd one gets cancelled. As it is the first one left a "why even bother" taste in everyone's mouth.
2. I imagine it can only be negative for Trump's ratings. Allllll that downplaying of how serious this is, and the mocking of masks, etc. Might not change the mood of his base but maybe just maybe some on the edge might be swayed to view the topic differently. At the very least it brings the topic of health front and center and that's a topic that Trump will not win against Biden.
3. I'd say they absolutely still go forward, McConnell is like a dog with a bone about the courts, he won't give up an opportunity to fuck us for generations, that's his legacy.
4. Doubtful for a while, and time is running short, this might close his campaigning window to two weeks or less. Whether he gets back out there at all depends on how he recovers of course.
5. Seems like you never know how it will effect people, but I'd have to imagine he'll end up ok. He's rich, he's white, he's sure to have the best medical care anyone could ask for. See Boris Johnson as an example. There's a reason why this is killing off poor minorities in higher numbers. But still... y'never know, right?

1. What does this mean for the debates?
The next debate is 12 days away. The CDC says (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/hcp/duration-isolation.html#cecommendations): "For most persons with COVID-19 illness, isolation and precautions can generally be discontinued 10 days after symptom onset1 and resolution of fever for at least 24 hours. For persons who never develop symptoms, isolation and other precautions can be discontinued 10 days after the date of their first positive RT-PCR test for SARS-CoV-2 RNA."

I'd say there's a good chance the 2nd debate could need to be rescheduled.


3. Will the senate still try to go ahead with the Supreme Court hearings?
I don't see how this will stop McConnell from ramming it through. The only way I see is if Trump dies, and then there's an argument to be made that his nomination is now invalid since he is no longer President.


4. Will Trump try to campaign?
In person? I don't see how he can. As much as he probably wants to, I don't think there's any way he can flout the isolation requirements.


5. Trump is 74 and obese--how sick will be become?
Herman Cain was also 74, so we can only hope.

Him making fun of Biden for wearing a mask everywhere he goes during the debate just makes this news that much more ironic.

Considering how lucky he is, he's probably going to beat it. This irony is amazing. He had a fundraiser too. No mask. Who knows how many of his donors he infected.

Whatever happens, happens. I don't wish him dead but I don't wish him well either.

Moreover he doesn't deserve a shred of empathy.

No empathy here, but I too could see this as one big hoax. I also don't wish him death as that wouldn't solve any problems, in fact things might blow up when he dies.

The whole thing is nothing more than a joke and I feel more than bad for my friends over in the US. There are times where I think it can't get any worse in my own country, so I feel all of you.

My only hope would be that no one loses their lives because of all of this turmoil that is happening. Yet the news proof me wrong on a steady basis.

There's a bit of a theory online now that the timing of this and how he announced it seemed odd, and that this is all just a ploy to get sympathy in the short term and to "beat" covid and then roll with the whole "see it's not a big deal, it's just a cold" and then go hard on it's not serious. While i'm not one for theories, i wouldn't put that past him. But if he does have it and recovers ...he'll probably just go with "it's not serious" anyway and that could be seriously dangerous. Like many in the UK we hoped our PM was going to change and take things seriously when he got it...he didn't.

I almost wonder if this is how America is saved.

the more people I talk to this morning as we're waking up, the majority of which has just seen the headline of him having it, the majority of them believe it is a hoax (all liberal people, and even two non-Trump fan conservatives I've talked to)

as one person said: "the ol' medical excuse from his Vietnam War playbook "
another: "I'll need to see if more people he came in contact with test positive, then I'll believe it"

I just don't think a scam of that magnitude is possible right now. The risk of a leak would be so intense and surely SOMEONE in the know would spill it on deep background. Plus there's really nothing to gain aside from him getting 2 weeks off.

The telling part here is the WH didn't announce the initial exposure with Hicks, whose symptoms were known to the administration as early as Wednesday. Hicks tested positive Thursday and Bloomberg WH reporter Jennifer Jacobs broke the story shortly thereafter >>

1311865638567239680

In a functioning administration, one that defers to the science, the president would have canceled all events until he could be tested. Instead they flew to Bedminster for 3ish hours to do nothing other than get money from rubes. This is going to be one hell of a contact trace operation. These absolute fucking idiots.

^^^ Exactly. It’s likely he knew he had it the day before, and did a fundraiser, anyway.

It’s amazing to me that the man lies SO much, when he gets Covid people don’t believe him. That’s what happens with liars.

Given that he sees sickness as weakness, I never thought it was a lie; I always thought he’d cover it up and lie if he got it. But he has doctors constantly testing him, and they’re not going to lie. The White House has THOUSANDS of instant tests. Then they wait for the more in-depth test.

Twitter is also posting all kinds of news reports that Hope Hicks was SYMPTOMATIC on Wednesday.

I think he's sick. I mean, I think he has COVID. He would not fake a sickness for any kind of sympathy, because he wants everyone to believe he is in tip-top shape.

I'm of two minds on whether or not this is true (which is fucked up, but hey, 2020, amiright?). On one hand, I could totally see him faking it, even if it goes against what he's said in the past. On the other hand, he and his associates have been mocking and avoiding guidelines since the start of the pandemic, so I'm not at all shocked by this news. In fact, I'm surprised it hasn't happened sooner.

Herman Cane was reported to be breathing strong right before he died, so yeah, there is absolutely no way they would say it if Trump had serious symptoms. My bet is that unless he needs to go on a ventilator (which would require Pence to be in charge for that time and couldn't be swept under the rug) he will be nothing but "doing well and recovering strong".

And now they’ve given him a therapy cocktail still at trial. And as I type this Wapo says he’s going to Walter Reed. They’re not being honest about this. So to revisit a post from earlier, President Pence isn’t out of the question at some point in the very near future. Similar to Cain, Boris was fine, fine, fine, and then in ICU.

I can't partake in the schadenfreude because I feel it would be disrespectful to those who died from something that could have been prevented so much sooner. All I can say is that when you play with fire you will get burned eventually. Unfortunately, His Imperial Egotisticalness is too malignant of a narcissist to learn the easy way, so he has to learn the hard way. Even then, the lesson probably won't stick. Even if he recovers, he will downplay the severity and will say that because it didn't affect him too badly (regardless of how severe it really is) it really isn't worth shutting down the country and requiring people to wear face masks when outside their own home.

You know, I've struggled with this one. I don't like the man. He ain't my President, he leaves a path of destruction wherever he goes. I really don't want him to die from covid. I hope he suffers from it a lot. He left a nation open to it, not really caring for those under his stewardship......... However, I want him to live and face tax fraud charges and any other criminal acts he's committed. Whether he loses this time round or when he leaves office in another 4 years (hopefully now).

It goes against my fundamental humanist beliefs to hope that Trump dies from COVID-19 but I hope he gets sick enough to possibly learn the error of his ways. Call me a dreamer. His opinion will be whatever the corporate overlords think will generate the most profits. Another factor is Pence scares the shit out of me. He appears to be a somewhat normal, reasonable person but if you look into it he's an end of the world Christian who can't wait to go hang with his bud Jesus. Not the kind of person you want with his finger on the button that could be the end of the world as we know it such as that is.

I feel like it's almost a modern day trolley problem.

We don't want to wish death on anyone, but if he lives and wins the election, hundreds of thousands more will die of covid. If he lives and loses the election he's likely to try to instigate a civil war while will undoubtedly kill many, probably not as many as him winning, but still more than zero.

The conspiracy nuts are going to have a harder time maintaining their fight if he's not cheering them on and constantly adding fuel.

I hate to be callous and wish death on anyone, but I feel like it would be better for the country if he died.

We forget the actual reality, which is that it's not a "he lives or he dies" question. A lot of people who survive don't fully recover, and have dire health issues for the rest of their lives. There is definitely an outcome where he survives but is not able to serve out his term(s).

-claimed he's not on oxygen "right now" and kept saying that. it appears he may have been on oxygen yesterday.

I'm probably going to get flamed for not wanting him to die this close to the election (if he dies after Inauguration Day, I sure as hell won't mourn him) but I expect things to get SERIOUSLY ugly if he dies at this time, not least because we would have President Pence on top of all the chaos. I'm hoping for America to restore some level of sanity, and any candidate dying at this time will only make things even worse. It's highly unlikely that Biden will be instantly declared the winner, after people have already started voting.

Thatís where the already complicated becomes much more complicated, as Tucker and Pildes explain. Each state has deadlines for when candidatesí names can be placed on the ballot; most have come and gone. And in many states, particularly in the wake of the pandemic, mail-in ballots have already been sent and voters are already mailing in their ballots. So at this point, even if Trump were to die or become incapacitated, there would be no practical way for the Republican National Committee to pick a new candidate, then have each state recast its ballots to reflect the new ticket. Those are uncharted waters, and it would take historic and complex legal battles to figure out how to proceed.

EDIT: And that's not even taking into account possible conspiracy theories that can impact Biden's candidacy, while a civil war is pretty much inevitable regardless of who will be in the White House after January 20.

With all the contradictions and of course bad will making the rounds it's getting hard to discern what's right or wrong information. He might in fact be doing well, but still I find it highly suspicious how fast this is all going and how quick these doctors make their assumptions. This isn't like eating something bad and being sick immediately, it's a virus that takes a little time. Even if he gets to go back to the White House tomorrow, the next week will show how good or bad he's actually doing.

I guess he's indeed handling it well and there won't be alot of consequences so he can go out there and downplay the whole thing just in time for the election. Gotta keep the madness going!

I think of the fate of Joseph Stalin. He died of a brain hemorrhage in 1953. Of course, he had any doctors whose diagnoses and advice he didn't like imprisoned or arrested, and everyone else was too afraid to properly diagnose him because they didn't want to meet the same fate as their peers. Stalin had no succession plan in place so there was a scramble to find a new Soviet Premier after his death.

I see Trump doing pretty much the same thing. His condition is likely worse than what is being told officially to the press, and doctors are afraid of being denied the right to provide care and treatment for him if they were up front and honest about his condition.

@Erneuert (https://www.echoingthesound.org/community/member.php?u=7060) Some people are afraid. Some people don’t want to take the risk—physically, mentally, legally.

Lots of people are burnt out.

Also, our government is a mess. Republicans were all too willing to be hypocrites and fall in under Trump. Most democrats are too caught up being establishment and predictably fumble when trying to hold him accountable. The old guard thinks going high when they go low is a good plan to combat Trump and it isn’t. I’ve seen more than a few on the internet chiding those who think it’s a tiny measure of karma that Trump and his closest cronies got COVID. Seriously. Biden should have had an ad ASAP about how fucking stupid Trump is, how many he’s endangered and just verbally annihilate him for 210,000 deaths.

The true progressives get totally fucked and held over the fire for getting in the mud and effectively smashing these idiotic hypocrites.

Trump’s followers are dangerous, unstable, stupid, and/or greedy. They don’t deal in logic/facts/reality. You cannot get through to them. It definitely appears that the police are largely MAGA which is another good reason to be afraid.

Oh, and don’t think for a second that Project Lincoln are allies of any sort. The only lesson the left should gather from them is their ads are exactly what Biden should be doing.

Libertarians are selfish dummies stuck at age 15 mentally. I wish they were more useless but they really do help Trump (and Republicans in general) win.

Citizens United allowed corporations to pretty much control government.

It’s...a lot. It seems unsaveable. Then there’s the group of people who “hate politics” (read also: young white people who have no understanding of how it actually does effect them) and don’t pay attention at all until they’re totally fucked.

Trump’s spent his whole life bullying and circumventing laws. Look at how much he’s gotten away with in under 4 years.

Citizens United allowed corporations to pretty much control government.

I agree to an extent, but this country has been a plutocracy for a very very very long time.

Citizens United was filed by Labor Unions as well as corporations (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_United_v._FEC#Background). The decision was about free speech, and the knowledge that TV advertising doesn't buy votes.

Good case in point:

2014 House Majority Leader Eric Cantor's loss to David Brat (https://www.politico.com/story/2014/06/eric-cantor-primary-election-results-virginia-107683).

Eric Cantor spent over a MILLION dollars on his campaign. Brat had less than $100,000. (https://www.politico.com/story/2014/06/eric-cantor-primary-election-results-virginia-107683)

VOTERS are the reason why this country is a plutocracy; VOTERS buy into the propaganda, when they don't have to.

Nobody is holding a gun to any voters' head when they go into that polling booth.

Most voters on the right vote for "key issues" like 2A, pro-life, SCOTUS, taxes, small government, etc.

Most voters in the center or left vote for more social issues, ethical issues, and civil liberties.

But I'd say MOST Americans don't fully understand the structure of American government, and how their state, county, and municipal governments provide the vast majority of their services, vs. the Federal, etc.

The part where he complains about the second moderator and then says it doesn’t matter because he won the second debate? That is straight up crazy talk. He didn’t misspeak or get mired in speculation... he’s congratulating himself for kicking ass in the past tense in an event that has yet to happen. Unless Trump has a time machine, this is alarming, and we aren’t seeing it because we are so normalized to him saying craaaaaaaazy stuff, but this is different.

Johnny Rotten has endorsed Trump and now wears MAGA merch.

So, great...


Used to stand for something, forgot what that could be.

As the argument went on Twitter:

which came with this interesting article (https://www.popdust.com/nazi-chic-2629432175.html) that seems a large bat signal now.

right, but there's a recent interview with Rotten speaking about how he really likes Trump, is voting for him, doesn't think he's a racist etc.

probably the same person he always was. again, not surprised.

Wasn't he spotted in a MAGA shirt, like, two or three years ago?

Malcolm McLaren created the Sex Pistols like a punk version of the Monkees; it was mostly about the fashion statement.

But punk is complicated. See this (https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2018/10/26/why-one-punk-rocks-icons-is-sporting-maga-shirt/). Johnny Ramone was a George Bush Republican. Not all of punk was the Clash and Sandinistas.

Lydon is married to a wealthy heiress. I suspect he’s now too privileged to see reality.

Lydon kinda lost it for most brits when he started doing butter adverts and reality shows, he became less punk and more a laughing stock unfortunately, so this doesn't at all surprise me.

So close to the election deadline this comes across as a bit of a desperate ploy to attract minority votes. Where’s $50bn going to come from in a pandemic that will probably cause a major recession? I hope this backfires and pisses off Trumps base enough not to vote for him.

strikes me if Trump really was doing this he’d have been spouting off about it during the BLM protests! But this way, it’s just a rumour and Trump can deny all knowledge but it sows seeds at just the right time
