Does Trump really have COVID-19

What was the first reaction you had to news that Trump had tested positive for COVID-19? Sadly, mine was who knows if he is telling the truth.

We have spent the last four years being bombard with lies from this man. He spends his days telling and tweeting the world that up is down, left is right, black is white, this is fake, that is a hoax and his faithful, those that Hillary Clinton so aptly named a “basket of deplorables” are either too stupid to know the difference or too embarrassed to admit it.

So, does Trump really have COVID-19? Hell, who knows but with Trump there are a bunch of hell who knows. Is he a billionaire? Is he smart? Does he owe the Russians or Saudi Arabia or both $421 million? Has he had a stroke? Is he a drug addict? Does he really weigh 225 pounds? Hell, who knows.

If you look at the progression of how this all unfolded yesterday it is pretty convenient. Hope Hicks gets it. If there is anyone in Trumps very small orbit that would do anything to protect him it is Hope Hicks. Then Trump goes on Hannity last night to start the ball rolling telling the Deplorable nation about the situation with Hicks (the set-up). Then two hours later he tweets: Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

So, does Trump really have COVID-19? At this point here are the possibilities:

  1. Trump has COVID.
  2. Trump is lying to avoid looking like a loser in another debate.
  3. Trump is lying to set up a medical resignation (and pardon) to avoid getting his ass kicked by over 100 electoral votes and thrown in prison.
  4. Trump is going to make a miraculous, powerful, magnificent recovery, ejecting bleach and hydroxychloroquine to prove to the world “This is a flu. This is like a flu.”

The one characteristic any elected official should be able to provide the people they represent is trust. Unfortunately, we haven’t experienced any level of trust with Trump or his administration during his entire term. So, does Trump really have COVID-19? Sadly who knows.

  2. I am not one to wish ill on people, but my immediate thought was “This couldn’t happen to a more-deserving individual.” He and his has scoffed at this disease, despite having been briefed on its seriousness.

    As Mark Twain once remarked, “I’ve never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.”

    That’s pretty much where I am right now.

  3. As children we were warned about lying – nobody would believe us when we told the truth. I don’t believe the liar, do you? All your scenarios are plausible.

    There’s no doubt this man will do whatever he needs to do to have things go his way (election and otherwise).

    Having said that, I really do hope the news is true. Not that I wish ill on ANYONE, but doggone it! He deserves to at least experience what MILLIONS of others have had to go through.

    Watch his 18 second video, his eyebrow raises, he is amused. This is a man about to lose an election scrambling to win. Available to him, a pandemic. Fake the symptoms, fake using an experimental treatment that wouldn’t get approval (as he promised) by Election Day, mount a remarkable turnaround, preach your invincibility saved by the next best treatment (which he can confirm made the difference for him) convince his cult that he is the next messiah…boom, back in. It is the greatest lie of modern politics. The only way I would believe this is real now is if he doesn’t survive this. I don’t wish death on anyone but OMG shows he would sell others to win this election. Oh. And now that he has “COVID”, you don’t think he’ll delay the election? So sorry Americans
