Trump’s positive test for COVID-19 throws U.S. presidential campaign into ‘confusion’
[ Editor’s Note: The American slang term, ‘the doo doo has hit the fan’, is so appropriate for this event, and I will use it despite my typically staying away from bodily function terms.
The stakes are so high in this election that politeness can be shelved for a bit, particularly so because Trump has had it off the shelf for almost four years as he has relished being offensive.
Here is a nicer one. ‘The chickens have come home to roost’. How fitting is that? The story is not so much that Trump and his Mrs. got Covid, but that his campaign team became super spreaders due to emmulating their boss’ attitude on not wearing masks as a show of strength, and then even more crazy, as a symbol of their having defeated Covid.
Hope Hicks is so far considered for the top spreader, and The Donald, bullshit artist extraordinaire quickly moved in to blame the military attaches and police security with the hots to schmooch her, then intruded into her private zone. This is really what the idiot put out, with his usual winging it.
But spread it she did and maybe even to the first couple as she was with them always on the campagin travel tours with all the hand shaking going on, and God forbid, even hugs. Even the Republican campaign chairman came down with it, all within a few days, which is cancelling a lot of the last 30 days push on the campaigning.
We have photos of the unmasked Republicans sitting near the front of the first debate, with no social distancing, with two senators down with it and having to quarantine during this critical legislation time with the Supreme Court Justice push.
Who could not say that these people deserve whatever befalls them from their own irresponsibility when they have shown such callousness to the American public, but rather their elitism. We owe them nothing, not even pity. They have been a threat to us all…JD ]
– First aired … October 03,2020 –
Just a month before the presidential election in the US, President Trump says he has tested positive for coronavirus. Trump’s handling of the pandemic has already been controversial, as he downplayed the severity of the outbreak.
Now, his infection is expected to cast shadow on his campaign, as the election looms.
