    Rei! I'm fine now, buddy, for a few weeks! Seems you were doing some late-night thread catch-up. :D
    Thank you, though... turns out I had a severe case of campylobacter food poisoning (that went undiagnosed for 10 days longer than it should have because the ER docs did not do the right testing...:roll::evil:).
    Not much idea how I got it. Strong antibiotics did the trick, at last.

    And now back to bigly discussion, like, the best discussion ever, okay? Everybody says so... of COVID-19...

    I can't say I feel good about between torn between wishing him the most unpleasant and debilitating set of described symptoms yet and being entirely convinced that the diagnosis is a 100% manufactured tactic.

    right? if he has mild to no symptoms, it will just fuel the anti maskers and be easier for him to lift restrictions that still need to be in place.

    My disdain for all politicians runs deep and I seldom believe anything that is said by anyone regardless of party affiliation and this is just another example. I don’t buy it. He’s put himself in many, many situations where it would have been easy to to contract it but I can’t see it more than anything other than to try and take some heat off him after the disaster of a debate.

    Anyway, don’t be like Trump. Be like me. Wear a mask, social distance, talk to no one and only look out your window when sofubi or pizza supposed to arrive.

    Of course I'm sending thoughts and prayers, but at the same time... upon reading the news this AM, I was struck by what a perfect strategy it would be to fake this: in one fell swoop, it would get him out of any more debates, minimize COVID, and possibly get him a vote surge. What if on October 27th or so he emerges into the public eye, "fully recovered" and roaring all his usual bullshit, looking more than ever to his cult like Golden Leader Bigly Strongman?

    ON THE OTHER HAND, as a friend said: It's tempting to go to conspiracy theories here but the most likely scenario is the most likely scenario. A bunch of idiotic irresponsible maskless nudniks have been traveling around in large packs, cohorting in large groups, flaunting their masklessness, riding around in AF1 together. Of course they were gonna get it at some point.

    This. He's lied about so many things (nearly everything), that it's impossible not to be skeptical about this.

    I hope he fucking dies. He can make fun of dead POW’s, I can pray to all the gods for his pain to be immense.

    But I do think it’s a cover for him to get more sympathy. It’s probably worked with everyone listening to his “Be Kind” cunt of a wife.

    @IronPaw My sentiments exactly, dude. I can’t help but feel like it’s a sympathy play, and a way to get out of debates and rallies for two weeks.

    Even still, I’m fully, karmically prepared to wish a slow and painful death for any and all of those sacks of human shit, Trump especially. Fucker can swallow dirt.

    I just can't see it. Half of his cult of followers have been spouting the natural selection thing all year saying how anyone who gets sick from the kung flu deserves it for having a shit immune system. The other half says if they get sick it's God's will and it is what it is. I don't see him getting sympathy from any of them at all. They will still all vote for him I'd imagine but it doesn't change anything at all.

    From all reports he still thinks he won that debate. Hell, he did the same creeptastic shit to Hilary three times and his fans loved every minute of it and he fucking won the election. I think he needed the debates to have any chance of grabbing some undecided votes.

    And the klan rallies are his bread and butter. Literally the biggest joy in his entire life. He feeds off that shit like a vampire made of cheetos. No way he wanted to miss any of those.

    His whole persona is one of supposed strength and power and money. Getting covid while avoiding every CDC guideline his own administration came up with and pushing the country to open up because it's totally safe is a bad fucking look no matter what happens next.

    They just upgraded his covid case from mild to moderate and are giving him some experimental treatments. Obviously he has a way better chance to recover than most of us since he has access to every treatment known to man unlike 99% of the rest of the country. Funny though that when the shit hits the fan he is avoiding hydroxy/bleach injections/internal UV light and going straight for the stuff Fauci said works.

    @Waterbear I hear you on all counts, man, I’ve just already seen a decent amount of crazy shit online that gives me the thought process that I have. I don’t know how real it is, but I saw a screen cap of someone being sent a digital letter from his campaign asking for donations since he got infected. I’ve also seen quite a bunch of “thoughts and prayers” shit for him, too. On some tinfoil hat shit I think there’s people at play that are stifling him after reports were made that people on the GOP were pissed at him after the debates. So it’s a good way to shut him up for two weeks and have more outlets reporting on his covid infection, and not his endorsement of Proud Boys and his taxes. It can also provide an ‘opportunity’ for him to fight it and ‘win’ while he further gloats that it wasn’t that bad and not serious, like he’s been saying. I just can’t help but be overly cynical with anything this flaccid meat bag says.

    I get it but look at his history with medical shit. Writes his own doctors report for physical fitness before the first election. Happens to be under the morbidly obese category by one pound. Avoids his physical forever. Takes a secret unscheduled night trip to the hospital for unknown reasons. Even a year later we don't know why or what they did to him. For him any sickness is weakness. So making up a serious case of poor people covid isn't something he would ever do. All the tax stuff and KKK shit is just another day at the white house. None of it bothers him or his supporters at all.

    He is literally about to be airfuckinglifted to the hospital to stay for the foreseeable future. All of it makes him look weak and stupid. He'd never let that happen if he could avoid it.

    Had Chris/Lixx survived to the present, he would've made a decent president no doubt. Good sense of fair play, decisive, no nonsense, and an admirable streak of grumpiness to overcome stupidity. Might not have had any experience in politics, but he'd know how to get things done, and just imagine all the toy cases in the White House. Give the other world leaders something to gawk at for sure! :razz:

    So get this, Trump is being treated with antibodies from mice. It’s a treatment that hasn’t been made available to the public yet.
    209,000+ are dead and of course, only he gets to try a potentially curative treatment. He doesn’t deserve that. It’s his fault this virus has been spread as far as it has.

    I hope he suffers.

    I can assure you Boris Johnsons hero survival status lasted all of five minutes after coming through it.

    if you look at the popularity polls for his time in hospital it spikes as he was in hospital, 60% approval. As soon as he left there is a quick decline, right back down to his starting point 35% approval. It took three months to drop. So tactically for trumples - this could be a shrewd move, or at least a lucky break. Well if you survive that is.

    Trump is being treated with REGN - COV2, an experimental anti-body drug that is still in the last phase of testing with somewhere around 2000 candidates taking the experimental drug now. It has shown to be well tolerated and has reduced viral load. It uses the same rapid response as their Ebola treatment which is under FDA review. I hate Trump as much as the next person, but for the sake of the rest of the US and world, I hope this treatment can provide relief with only minor side effects. We need this. We need Covid treatments as much as we need Covid vaccines. Does Trump deserve it? Not imo but am I shocked he was able to use the compassionate use request? No. Just cause he’s sick doesn’t mean he’s still not a slimey dirtbag who will do what we he wants. Politics aside, I just want more good news on the virus front, that’s all. I want a chance at seeing my 99 year old grandmother once more

    More than a little ironic that the core of the republican party got covid at a party celebrating their new supreme court pick so she can erase millions of peoples health insurance and the rights of women to you know, decide what to do with their own bodies.

    I know, right? Healthcare coverage and care is on the chopping block for many, but when it happens to politicians themselves, they suddenly loooove it... but only for themselves!
    Ugh, she is such a looney. It’s not a surprise she’s part of a cult too. A group of 1,700 people in a “Christian community” across 22 states... that’s a cult, I don’t see how it can be any other way.

    He told people who to hate and who to blame for everything wrong in their lives. If you tell stupid people absolutely nothing is their own fault they will love you for it. That was all it really took to get half of the country to worship him.

    Now 7,426,686 Americans have been infected with an avoidable illness that may seriously affect them for the rest of their lives.
