No, I'm sure if he could of gotten away with not telling anyone he would. There are just way to many people in his personal bubble that are affected and if kept quiet could of been a mass spreading event. If he acted differently without explanation it would of leaked out somehow anyway. And last he ties how well he is doing based on the stock market and no one would intentionally want to cause it to tank if it was not true.

Its hard not to agree. I mean, this is a man who won't wear masks or practice social distancing. What did he expect to happen? All the same, there's something very distasteful about the sadistic glee of the left on twitter.

I don't want him dead. I want him to learn a lesson.

From that perspective, it's odd that he didn't get it sooner - Boris was being equally reckless and got it before the UK hit its peak.


Though what I'm most curious about is: if Mike Pence also gets infected, where will he drive to test his eyesight, since they don't have castles in the US...

I heard he got it from Biden.

Even those that hate the President are not foolish enough to say anything other than best wishes for speedy recovery. That is the kind of lightning that may strike.

Anyway, he and the first lady live a healthy lifestyle. It is almost certain they will be just fine.

Only half the people I say that to is humorously intelligent enough to know it is a joke. TDS causes it.

The President has been hospitalized but I am sure it was done as a precaution and there has not been a transfer of power.

I am sure he has some preexisting conditions due to his weight and age. The reason for the mysterious hospital visit last year has never been fully disclosed.

He should be fine.

I doubt he got it from VP Biden, most likely from Hope Hicks. The west wing has no social distancing nor for the most part wear masks so who know from where. I am sure some serious contact tracing is being done.

TDS?
