I am trying very hard not to take pleasure from this. It will be interesting to see what happens next.

If trump dies or severally incapacitated prior to election does Pence become the incumbent on the ticket.

If he recovers quickly he will brush it aside and say "it's just a mild flu".

 

"Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!"

The first reply to that tweet, seems like a dream. Not sure if serious...

 

"Mr. President I'm literally sitting here crying and throwing up at this news. You are the bravest man I have ever seen. I named my first son Donald after you. If anything happened to you I don't know what I would do. Thank you for ending racism."

And to think Trump was mocking Biden for wearing masks, just days ago during the debate.

Not wrong...

 

 

Possibilities: 

 

1. Trump actually has COVID

 

2. Trump is lying to avoid looking like a jackass in another debate

 

3. Trump is lying to set up a medical resignation to avoid losing by over 100 electoral votes 

 

4. The WH should have quit testing, cases would have gone to zero!

Maybe those dimwit trump supporters might actually take this stuff seriously now or are they going to still say it’s a hoax

Well I suppose its not a strategy to gain sympathy ?
Get Evangelicals out feverishly (literally) praying.
The chosen one then recovers, a miracle confirming anointed by God !
With direct authority from God... Well ... Next move would be...

 

OK probably not as too many people around him who leak like a sieve would have to be in on it, he always chooses the best people.

 

Afterall its discovered early, he will get best treatment, treatment even the average billionare can't get if needed.
Those that save their lives will be those once ignored, and when not needed ignored again.

 

Pense is there for a full body transplant if needed ?

that's a crazy theory Trump would come up with like checking Bidens ears for hidden mics ;)

 

its simply Occam's Razor - he caught it because Trump doesn't like masks, or being seen wearing masks so he can turn them into a culture war

An aide who saw Trump late Thursday said he seemed normal and did not show any symptoms ...

 

Aides said all of his political events will be cancelled for the foreseeable future. ...

Of all the unbelievable things that have happened under Trump

 

Pence would become President, then just like the DNC, the RNC choose who is on their ticket for the election

 

Given there is no time left, you can almost guarantee the RNC would choose Pence (!)

I've just called the Grim Reaper and put him on standby.

 

Apparently Chump probably got it from his aide Hope Hicks who tested positive earlier. As an aside, why do all of Chump's female aides look like ex Penthouse centrefolds?

This isn’t a good thing. If Trump were to die he becomes a martyr. If he doesn’t he can add his inability to have rallies as another reason he loses the election (if he loses).

It makes it harder to criticise him on his covid response because he will always have the easy come back of “don’t talk to me about Covid, I’ve had it so only I can understand it”. It doesn’t matter that it’s meaningless, his supporters will eat it up.

And let’s wait for the conspiracy theories that the Dems gave him Covid.

I can’t see an upside to this.

Because Trump does the hiring I’d imagine.
