No video of Trump walking to the helicopter tells me he wasn't able to walk to it.

Edit: I was wrong. There was video.

No need to make much of him walking to the chopper in his suit. What else would he or any other president do except try to project strength by getting dressed and walking on their own. He might have collapsed as soon as the doors shut.

Definitely not himself in this video. His speech cadence and tone make him sound like an actual human for the first time I can ever recall.

From CNN:

President Trump was spooked after he tested positive for coronavirus and has become increasingly alarmed by his diagnosis as he developed symptoms, like a fever, overnight, according to a person familiar with his reaction.

I hear this a lot and don't get it. Pence won't have the army of die hards that Trump does. He won't have congress falling all over themselves to do his bidding. He's nothing.

Pence is just as evil as trump but in a more conventional way.

Honestly, though I realize that switching candidates 4 weeks before the election is probably not good for GOP, Pence is definitely much more attractive to the Never Trumpers as a candidate right? Trump nut jobs would probably see it as their duty to honor his legacy and vote for Pence (ironic given RBG)

Basically this...but also I would think they would push harder to delay the election. Pence is every bit as anti-labor, anti-women's rights, homophobic etc etc etc as Trump but he can do it with A Face the American People Trust
