FWIW a friend of mine works in the EEOB. They have been requiring staff to test every five days.

LOL...don’t be too hard on him, he’s not the only one who dismissed AMZN back in the day (yours truly).

Some of us on here when we can’t debate the points at hand need to make up in our own heads that our debate opponent is a terrible investor to make ourselves feel better about our own selves (“Lol they’ve been all in cash since March—I follow their every post on here lulz”!).

As we saw on Tuesday, the modus of these folks is to yell/ignore the question/topic at hand and deflect by attacking your opponent via projection: about their son’s past drug habits or supposed nepotism.

As they say: “birds of a feather flock together.”

The only one who called AMZN was Whitney Tilson, at $4 a share. And now, he transitioned from hedge fund manager to newsletter seller so that for $5,000 a head, he can share this short of brilliance with everyone, rather than just accredited investors.

The Loser couldn't cut it, and just gave up the election .... ... "I didn't win, cause I got Covid!!!!, and couldn't campaign".
Right up there with those 'losers' in the military who get captured and die.

The man was failing badly, and came out of the debate smelling like dogshit.
Announcing Covid - about the only way of cutting losses, and changing the channel  ;) Distraction ?

Now. we roll the dice. More votes if 'Vice' campaigns? and the chump is kept out of sight ??
More votes still, if the chump is on a ventilator and can't twitter? And worth a lot more still, dead than alive?? Welcome to calculus.

Doesn't seem like much downside.

For someone who thinks about himself first in everything, and who has made numerous false statements under 18 U.S.C 1001 (a), where each false statement is punishable by 5 years of imprisonment, winning this election to avoid any potential charges might be more important than taking serious health risk.

I hope not but I wouldn't be surprised if historians eventually find that this was all planned by Trump.


Why would he lie about getting sick? What's the benefit? I don't think he would want to be seen as "weak".

Sympathy vote

I just don't see it. What % of voters are truly undecided at this point? Out of those will this really push them to him? These undecided voters are likely see the irony in all of this too given his statements for the past 9 months and attempted coverup. I just think narcissists hate the perception of weakness more than anything. If he is lying than the it would be to take advantage of the news cycle, as it's safe to say this has been one of the worse weeks for him politically. But still that means no rallies for 7-14 days, which is a significant amount of time this close to the election.

I am not a fan of either Donald or Melanie, but I am wishing both of them to get through this well.

The last thing we need is conspiracy theories ahead of the election.

Agree. 

As I said above, I take the news at face value.  With regards to fakery suggested by other posters, I just assumed their angle was something like:  quick trouble-free recovery further demonstrates COVID is largely a nothing-burger.  I expect messaging to this effect in any case.

if you are a hetereo male, how can you not be a fan of Melania?

does this infection hurt or help Trump in getting reelected?

The other thing you can’t rule out...

About 48 hrs prior to testing positive, he was in the same room as Biden spewing loads of hot air along with respiratory droplets...
