Trump has tested positive for Covid-19.
We might want to remember that, at the debate, both he and his family defied the rules at the Cleveland Clinic and refused to wear masks.
He also mocked Biden for wearing a mask, and for practicing social distancing at Biden rallies.
I witnessed a Cleveland Clinic doctor remind Trump's guests to wear a mask, even offering them surgical ones on the off chance they didn't have one. None of them put on a mask.— Marianna Sotomayor (@MariannaNBCNews) October 2, 2020
The doctor looked frustrated as she stepped away, prompting a staffer to say, "That’s all you can do.” https://t.co/ShthfC23Gr
"We've had no negative consequences," he said, about his own rallies, ignoring the fact that many people have become ill and several have died. Not "real" people like him, I guess, so in his point of view it doesn't matter.
I can predict the future: Trump will have an extremely mild case. He will recover easily. (90% of people do.) He will use this to continue lying to the American people, claiming Covid-19 is not dangerous, is no more than the "sniffles," that masks are not necessary, and that "hardly anyone" dies from it.
His cult will be screeching (okay, they've already begun screeching) that this is a liberal plot, that Soros infected him deliberately, probably through an Antifa agent.
Fox News and Tucker Carlson especially will spend hours pontificating (providing no evidence whatsoever) about "Leftists" "celebrating" Trump's illness.
Meanwhile, the GOP continues to ignore guidelines: they don't social distance, they don't wear masks, they continue to believe that they are immune and only "those" people get the virus.
