"Little evidence that White House has offered contact tracing, guidance to hundreds potentially exposed"

 

 

Hours before President Trump tested positive for the novel coronavirus and just one day before he was admitted to the hospital, he mingled with more than 200 people at his New Jersey golf club for a campaign fundraiser.

 

Less than a week before that, he welcomed 150 political allies and religious leaders — including several who are now infected — to the White House to meet the jurist he has nominated to the Supreme Court.

 

In between, the president met with dozens of aides without wearing a mask — even in close quarters and after top aide Hope Hicks had tested positive. He appeared before thousands at a rally in Minnesota. And he held a nationally televised debate with former vice president Joe Biden after holing up with debate preppers.

 

But there was little evidence on Saturday that the White House or the campaign had reached out to these potentially exposed people, or even circulated guidance to the rattled staffers within the White House complex.

 

The state of New Jersey asked the Republican National Committee for the guest list for the Thursday roundtable at Trump’s Bedminster golf club so it could do contact tracing. The list that was provided indicated that of the 207 attendees, about two dozen were in a small roundtable inside with Trump, where several took pictures with him.

 

The RNC also sent an email to the attendees, encouraging them to contact their medical providers “if you or any of your loved ones is ill or develops a fever, shortness of breath, or other respiratory symptoms.”New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy (D) said early Friday that “the contact-tracing process is underway” and urged “everyone who attended yesterday’s event in Bedminster to take full precautions, including self-quarantining and getting tested.”

 

“There has not yet been any contact with the White House or the RNC,” said Doug Schultz, a spokesman for the Minnesota Department of Health. “In this situation, you could say that the media have been doing most of that work for us through news accounts of those who are positive.”

 

At least 200 supporters greeted Trump upon his arrival at the Minneapolis-St. Paul airport on Wednesday — many without masks, behind a barricade that separated them from the president by about eight feet, according to those who were there. But a group of prominent state Republicans stood closer to Trump on the tarmac as he stepped off Air Force One and are now in self quarantine and awaiting test results.

 

From there, Trump traveled to Shorewood, Minn., a tony suburb of Minneapolis, where he attended a fundraiser at the lakefront home of Marty Davis, the president and chief executive of Cambria USA, a quartz countertop manufacturer. A state Republican Party official, who declined to be named discussing the event, said about 40 to 50 people attended the indoor gathering.

So, business as usual for Donald and his cronies in the White House, ie, coronavirus isn't a problem...until it actually affects him. Suddenly, it's the end the world.

Yeah, that's the problem: See, I told you it was all a Democrat hoax, I got it and because I'm so great it just bounced off me. Now let me tell you about how rigged the elections will be if I lose. Are the Proud Boys standing by?

Quote of the day (WP): “There was a panic before this started, but now we’re sort of the stupid party,” said Edward J. Rollins, co-chairman of the pro-Trump super PAC Great America.

Looks like Trump's witch doctor is furious he wasn't given her preferred treatment. Pity she isn't the one treating him...

I'd prefer to be ignored by Trump than having any involvement with Trump.

Just ask these people
  • Steve Bannon
  • Roger Stone
  • Michael Flynn
  • Paul Manafort
  • Rick Gates
  • Michael Cohen
  • George Papadopoulos

As I said earlier, I wondered why he wasn't on the phone to her immediately upon receiving his diagnosis. Remember, she (allegedly) cured over 300 people of coronavirus.

Problem is he hasn't expanded that base much after winning in 2016, and there are far less undecided voters this time than there were back then.
