President Donald Trump and Melania Trump test positive for COVID-19

Hot off the wire from Fox News:

President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump both tested positive for COVID-19 early Friday, and are set to quarantine and recover at the White House.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19,” the president tweeted. “We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately.”

He added: “We will get through this TOGETHER!”

A White House source told Fox News shortly after the president’s tweet that he and the first lady are “fine” and are in the quarantine process at the White House.

Just over a month from Election Day, the presidential race has been upended once again.

I pray for a quick recovery for the President and First Lady.

  1. These two weeks are going to be crucial. I think back to McCain suspending his campaign in 08 at a time when he was leading in many polls. Here Trump and Doofus are virtually tied in the must have states and yet he is out of commission for two weeks.

    Biden suspended his campaign months ago so he will have difficulty taking advantage of this. McCain seemed panicked by the economic meltdown and his suspension hurt him whereas this will probably not be the case for Trump.

  5. We need to see a high-energy Mike Pence in the battleground states.   Load up his slate and give him pills.

    Hopefully President Trump and Melania are healthy enough to fight off the Virus.

    I want to see Trump tweeting at all hours.

    We will be praying for the Trumps and for our country.

    I texted this to my brother this morning. 

    God could have spared Trump from this. That He didn’t I will take as a sign he will turn this into a positive.

    Our Creator loves coming through when things look like they are hopeless.

    Mosses, we are trapped between the sea and the Egyptians. What are we going to do ?

    I also sent him this.

    This could be a gift. Trump will be seen as leading through it not around it like basement Biden.

    This may endear Trump to more voters.

    Chin up. Don’t let the left drink your tears. Not yet.

  7. There is a 3% chance it makes any difference at all.  Medical observation says, “Take vitamins C and D at rational doses.”  Don’t sweat the small stuff.  This could be a huuuge campaign advantage.  “See?  No biggie.”

    It could.  It could.  But I’m afraid to hope, in this accurséd year.  But thanks to you both, Nunc  and Kevin.

  9. Hypatia:  “It’s over.  If there is a God, He doesn’t want Trump to win.

    Ah!  You person of little faith!  What is wrong, Hypatia?  Why have you become so fearful?  Are you spending too much time reading Far Left propaganda on the NYT and listening to Marxist Central on PBS?

    Let me throw out a positive possibility which the Good Lord may have set up — the President & his entourage may have been victims of False Positives, which is a real scientific issue that never gets discussed by the Usual Suspects.  Rational scientific analysis suggests that the majority of people testing positive for Covid do not have the disease — they are False Positives from the testing regime.

    If it turns out that the President or some of his entourage have been erroneously told they have Covid, it would bring the whole topic of False Positive test results out of the shadows and blow a big hole in the Far Left Lock Down imposition.

    Keep the faith, Hypatia!

    Except the media are doing his campaigning for him.

  11. …and thanks to you, too, Gavin.  I did think of false positive, but the fact that both Trumps tested positive, somehow made that seem less likely, although statistically I guess it doesn’t.

    I want to hear from Trump, and to see him.

  12. Another possibility to consider, Hypatia.

    Suppose the President & First Lady really do have the Covid-19 virus in their systems.  They stay away from public gatherings for 2 weeks, while the President continues to use the Internet with vigor.  And in 14 days time they are both pronounced hale & hearty.

    You mean an old guy can catch the dreaded Covid-19 and it turns out to be a big nothing-burger?  Then why are Biden and the Usual Suspects messing up everyone’s lives with Lock Downs, masks, unemployment, school closings?

    The Good Lord works in mysterious ways.  Don’t let the Far Left propaganda get to you.

  13. False Positives — given the high economic, health, psychological, and social damage being done by Big Intrusive Government’s lock downs, this serious scientific issue is worth paying attention to.  For anyone who has not being paying much attention to it, here is a link to a doctor discussing False Positives:

    https://drmalcolmkendrick.org/2020/09/28/false-positive-tests/

    First, you have to know the estimated prevalence of the disease in the community. That is, the total number currently infected. Last time I looked it was one in nine hundred. For the sake of this calculation I shall call it one in a thousand. …

    Using this one in a thousand figure. This means, if you randomly tested ten thousand people, you would expect to find ten COVID19 cases [forgetting the false negatives for now].

    On the other side of the coin. If the false positive rate is one per cent, you would have an additional one hundred false positives cases. …

    Putting this another way. With a prevalence of one in a thousand, and a false positive rate of one per-cent you would have ten true COVID19 positive cases, and ninety false positives. Ergo, the vast majority of people told that they have COVID19, do not. Is this actually happening?”

    Yes
    , this would be the best possible scenario.  But the best possible scenario never seems to transpire lately.  Still, maybe this will turn the tide.  I hope so.  And about The Don: “If  love can save him, he will not die” To paraphrase a common inscription on the tombs of the young men lost in WW I.

    Will we see if hydroxychloroquinine will work as advertised?

    Brazil guzzles hydroxychroloquin prophylactic against malaria. Brazil is Wuhan virus hit hard.  We then suspect the original glowing French report of 400 patients was fabricated crap.

    God has answered No plenty of times in my life.

    You guys have been ending the world since 434 AD.  We’d be 1000 years up in civilization if you had buttoned your yaps and listened to the Masons about the Greek ball Earth.  Imagine a Protestant England wholly in it for immediate gain instead of a promised payment next Tuesday.  Admittedly we’d all be wearing powdered wigs…but Central and South America would be boons not a busts.   We’d dump all the fools into Australia and Canada, then ignore them.

    Guys it’s over. Just embrace the suck. Biden might win all but ten states.

    I hope you’re wrong.  But: Just read that both Biden and Harris tested negative.

    At best, this will go on for ten days, outta  the mere 30  we have left.  And what if he has a course of illness likeBoris  Johnson?  I don’t think he’s going to win if he’s in the hospital on Nov 3, even “doing well”.
