Hmmmm, methinks Melania should hire personal security. Her succumbing to severe sickness/death could be super helpful to Drumpf, maybe, in scoring some sympathy. Plus think of the possibilities once QAnon/8Chan got their crazy pills factory rolling. :shudder:

The same thing you are, just on a more personal level although being from Belgium you're probably nicer about it than most (including myself).

Yes, my mind is spinning to how this is helpful for Trump or how if he dies he again gets to escape justice.

Somehow Trump gets knocked off the ballot or Trump stays on the ballot and people vote for him knowing Pence will talk his place. Pence nominates Don Jr to be VP (Ivanka isn't old enough to be President). Biden gets sick from Trump and White people don't want to vote for Kamala. Biden dies, Trump dies, Pence wins.

I seriously need help.

Ivanka is 38, same age as Mayor Pete. In your scenario it would def be her and not Don Jr who gets the nod.

This season of “2020: the series” is full of twists

Trump being Trump means there are many reasons why he is lying:

Distraction from the tax story
Attempt at sympathy votes
Excuse to cancel future debates
Reason to cancel in-person voting


It also means that if he’s telling the truth, his perception of COVID will remain unchanged.

“I got it and it wasn’t bad. What’s the big deal?”

Or

“Joe Biden and the radical left poisoned me with China virus!”

I don't for a moment believe he's telling the truth, if he is and begins to show symptoms with his obvious lack of overall health . Isn't there a very good chance he'll die?

I’ll believe that a president dies of an illness these days while still in office when i see it.

Here's why you know Trump is telling the truth. They're having to cancel rallies.

Trump lives for that horsefeathers. It's how he soaks in all that praise he so desperately needs. He wouldn't cancel it unless he really had to.

I don't hope he dies. But I do hope he gets seriously ill and spends about, oh, a month and two days being hospitalized.



As for Melania...I think we should all just not care.

Trump probably gets tested daily. Probably won't know for a bit if he is asymptomatic. Let's hope Biden tests negative.

I agree on your point regarding Melania who gives a rat's ass about her, why should we?

Do you think Trump being seriously ill but, not dying, will have a positive effective in that all will finally come on board will safety protocols?

Yeah this is probably too much of a utilitarian view, but Trump dying would most likely save countless other, better lives, so...team covid.
