That’s exactly what happened and I think it’s called reckless disregard for human life. Or manslaughter.October 3, 2020 at 3:15 pm #962849CopaParticipant
Yeah, from what I’ve read, his odds of recovering are very high. I’m so angry that after months of downplaying this and hosting mask-free events, he has access to the best treatment out there. He should go home to self monitor like everyone else with mild symptoms is told to do and let the chips fall where they may, cause it’s just a cold, right!? Or he should only be allowed to pick from the treatments he was pushing with zero data to back it up.October 3, 2020 at 4:37 pm #962850HazelParticipant
weirdly the total melts in the Uk who have fallen for the whole Q-Anon bullshit, where the whole thing is a hoax /queen eats babies/is a lizard/ bill Gates wants to suck your brain out with a straw/trump will save the world etc etc are very quiet today.October 4, 2020 at 9:21 am #962874Dear WendyKeymaster
My prediction is that Trump will pull through this and we’ll likely never know how dire the situation got while he was infected bc we can’t trust the White House to be transparent about anything. However, we know now that Trump was a super spreader. Already, there are like 14 people he was either in direct contact with or who were in direct contact with someone from that rose garden announcement weekend who have tested positive, including morbidly obese Chris Christie who is going to have a hell of a time with covid. We also know Trump went to a fundraiser (or maybe multiple fundraisers? I can’t remember for sure) in New Jersey on Thursday, AFTER he knew he was at risk of having covid (I think he already knew he was positive but that’s unconfirmed at this point). If any deaths can be traced to his recklessness, even if HE survives (which is likely will, but we’ll see), he has even more blood on his hands than he already did. There’s a criminal code in New Jersey around the idea of reckless manslaughter – endangering someone through reckless acts, like, I don’t know, exposing hundreds of people to a deadly virus you know you’re at high risk of having.October 4, 2020 at 9:50 am #962877
Chris Christie has asthma too.October 4, 2020 at 10:06 am #962878Part-time LurkerGuest
One of the most frustrating things about this is that he and his wife will probably have incredibly mild cases and then they’ll both come out and say “See, it’s nothing. Barely a sniffle! I told you it was a democratic hoax, masks are stupid! ”October 4, 2020 at 10:25 am #962879
He IS in the hospital and saying he’s not out of the woods yet. It’s been reported he had a fever of 103 and heart palpitations and was on oxygen. So he can say what he wants, but everyone saw him hospitalized and scared. He keeps asking if he’s going to die.October 4, 2020 at 11:57 am #962880SpaceyStephParticipant
Back in like March I was daydreaming that one day he would get Covid and I imagined I’d be like “serves him right.”
But now this diagnosis brings none of the joy I thought it would.
Why is that?October 4, 2020 at 12:13 pm #962881ktfranParticipant
Because unlike the president, you’re not a horrible person that wishes people ill. Plus, karma.
When I first read that he got Covid, my immediate thought was what stunt is he trying to pull. Then when it was announced he’s in the hospital, no, it’s not a stunt.
I think it’s disgusting that he flouted scientists and didn’t protect U.S. citizens. I want to say it serves him right. I won’t. I don’t want to put that out in the universe.October 4, 2020 at 2:08 pm #962882FyodorGuest
Chris Christie is probably regular obese now rather than morbidly obese.October 4, 2020 at 2:13 pm #962883FyodorGuest
Trump getting COVID after six months of insisting it’s bullshit and ignoring safer protocols is some real Checkhov’s gun shit. Like a twist in the season finale that is heavily foreshadowed all season but still shocking when it happens.October 4, 2020 at 2:28 pm #962884
He’s on a steroid now that they only give to super serious cases when it’s in the lungs. 25% of those people don’t make it.
I’m sure he’ll recover, just pointing out that he’s in seriously dire health, and his doctors are lying.
