Real news or Fake?

 On my Yahoo news page, it says Trump and wife Melania have tested positive for Covid 19 and will begin the quarantine and recovery immediately.

Is this true or is he trying to avoid the next two debates with Biden?

What will this mean for America?

The world holds its breath....

(not literally of course)

  1. Who knows. I hope he wasn't contagious while he was shouting at Biden and the moderator unmasked in the debate.
    And wonder just how rigorous his quarantine will be.

    1. Elephant's Child; I had a reply here and accidentally deleted it along with some spam.
      I'm wondering if he is faking it to avoid the Presidential debates and if he just tested positive he was most certainly contagious while he was out and about recently.

  2. As cynical as I am, that did not occur to me. I wonder.....

    2. You do understand that he owns stock in the experimental drug he was treated with. Regeneron? (Which for all the Republicans' screaming about abortion and the harvesting of stem cells is a stem cell treatment..) Stock is booming and the president is claiming that he feels better than he has for 20 years. Why Covid is nothing to be afraid of! It might just be a miracle cure for aging, from the sounds of it! I can hardly wait to catch it myself! His cult is completely blind to his dangerous ridiculousness.

    3. Debby; after hearing on radio news a half hour ago that he is already back in the White House, I'm even more sceptical that he was ill at all.

  3. Do you think he’ll make a marvellous recovery and tell the world ‘it was nothing’

    1. Cathy; if he does we can be pretty sure he is faking it to avoid the debates.

    1. Iris Flavia; it just seems suspicious to me, after all his going on about how it isn't real, or just a little thing that will go away, nothing to worry about and suddenly he and his wife have it? Just in time to miss the next round of debates?

  5. This could go so many ways. If he has no symptoms it confirms his wrong assertion that Covid is not dangerous. If he gets sick it could bring out a sympathy vote. Also it could keep him from another horrid debate. The interesting thing is if Mike Pence also is put out of commission, the leader of the House , Nancy Pelosi, is next in line for president. Scary and interesting times.

  6. I hope his bleach injections fix him if this is the truth, but truth is a stranger to the Orange Menace.

    1. WWW; we all know bleach injections won't work, not even for him. Hah! If he does have Covid, then I think he got what he deserved. Mean of me? Too bad.

    1. Margaret D; call me mean, but I hope he is too sick to work, if he does have it. He needs to know how his people suffered and the only way is for him to suffer.

  9. I don't wish him or anyone in his family misfortune. But I have trouble taking any of his policies.

  10. Trump is in the hospital, along with a few others. I hope it is a false diagnosis. the very idea of Nancy Pelosi as president would be a disaster for our country.

    1. Susan Kane; I don't know enough to say anything about Nancy Pelosi. She may be as bad as Trump, but surely she couldn't be worse?

  11. I don't know what to believe. There have been so many lies coming out of this White House that I'm not sure anymore. And I know I'm not alone in this. What a sorry state this country is in.

  12. Previously he had said he was not afraid of corona. Now declared exposed to the virus ... maybe the news is real.

    Greetings.

    1. Himawan Sant; they have said he has already left the hospital and is back in the White House, so I believe he didn't have Covid at all, it is just another one of his stunts trying to prove he is the greatest man in America, which we know isn't true. How can he say Covid is nothing when so many have been so ill and so many have died!!

  13. Fascinating to me is that the WH has forbidden the CDC to do contact tracing for any of the positive cases. More cover up. His irresponsible unmasked photo shoot at the hospital, so that his daughter could post it on facebook "My father is relentless." The word was right. The bullshit is relentless. His limo ride angered the attending physician AND the secret service, but it fed his ego, and lord knows that is the only important thing. One by one, these people fall, and I can't feel sorry for a one of them. They all made a very foolish gamble. And now the president is telling us all not to be afraid of the virus, that it is nothing. 215,000 lives lost and he's telling us this is nothing. What is happening right now is simply insanity.

    1. Debby; see my reply to your earlier comment, I am almost convinced he never was ill at all, not with Covid anyway. Mentally ill, yes and afraid of the next debates, so he probably had a panic attack.

  14. Ugh. I'm so sick of his mouth and that idiot press secretary of his too. She's such a..... Fill in the blank.

  15. I think Trump getting the virus was a delicious case of poetic justice, and silly me thought it might be a valuable teaching moment. I was hoping he'd get sick enough that he might gain some empathy for all the others who've suffered and died. I was hoping he'd change his tune and start taking this virus seriously.

    I shoulda known better.

    It's maddening that he's still pooh-poohing the dangers of the virus. Sure, it wasn't so bad for HIM, maybe... but the rest of us don't have a full team of doctors at our beck and call and the best experimental drugs in the world at our disposal. Personally, I don't think he should have been released from the hospital so soon. And for the love of God, I wish somebody would close his twitter account! The man is deranged. (And it ain't just from the steroids they pumped into him, either!)

    Take care, and have a super weekend,
