Supposedly he could've caught it from Hope Hicks?

Why is she EVEN BACK with his administration? Didn't she step down?

What is his fascination with women like her? They "FAWN" over him?

Nice timing considering the audio recording of Melania saying she doesn’t care about children being separated from their parents or caring about Christmas came out.

Praying for Pres. Trump and First Lady - that they have a healthy recovery and a speedy one.

I'm ALSO praying that GOING FORWARD - Pres. Trump sets a BETTER example in dealing with Covid....

He has been RECKLESS - to say the least - in dealing with this....

Took him too long to start wearing a mask...

Ridiculing those who WORE them, like Biden.

Feeding into hoaxes....not setting good examples for Social Distancing...

Pushing to OPEN THINGS UP sooner than he SHOULD HAVE........

Indeed life choices catch up with ALL of us. NONE OF US are EXEMPT.

God's Will he and EVERYONE AFFECTED recovers.

At the very moment that Trump is mocking Biden, "He always wears a mask, even when 200 feet away form people, and it's the biggest mask you've ever seen..."   the virus has either already entered or will (within hours) enter his body causing him to be infected.  Maybe because he isn't practicing safe distancing or mask-wearing.

I hope he recovers too.  But I also hope that if he has significant issue that we are informed.  I have doubts that anyone in the West Wing will provide the truth if that truth might be viewed as damaging politically.  Clearly, no comments from medical personnel will be allowed without scrutiny -- and we know his sycophants will cover-up if they are told to.   I don't think we'll be able to believe reports coming from the White House.

The truth might cause us to panic.

If Trump is incapacitated and Pence is temporarily granted the powers of the Presidency via the 25th Amendment, then Pelosi and Grassley would have to be informed.

Of course this is only if there is an OFFICIAL transfer of power. IMO Trump could feasibly tell Pence and his cabinet to keep things running without ever signing the paperwork. The public gets kept in the dark, and Trump doesn't have to look "weak."

A better question is what is her fascination with HIM.

Pretty interesting article (written in July) about the mechanics of the 25th Amendment and what would happen.

It is just part of this "Reality Show" persona that's plagued NOT ONLY the WH but AMERICA since 2016.

Now? The rubber is meeting the road...things getting SERIOUS.

The concern and stress MUCH of America has dealt with since March 2020 is NOW up front and center in the WH.

Now? 'THEY" are dealing with Quaranteening.....

If it makes the WH feel better I haven't seen "MY" mom since Febuary of THIS YEAR...used to see her TWICE a month. Even though I feel healthy SHE has some conditions that make it best to just CALL her weekly.

Hopefully as Pres. Trump recovers he can use this time as a period of REFLECTION.......

You really have to reach to take the statement "this is their (democrats) new hoax" is something other than implying he feels it is a hoax.  But don't get too caught up in the semantics.  Every statement he has made (it will magically disappear, young people are immune) is an attempt to downplay it.

One other point, my 84 year old father called it a hoax.  He didn't just make this up.  He heard it from friends who heard it on Fox News (yes, I did contract tracing so to speak to confirm this).  This is the talk that is going on.  The people who follow Trump are not calling it a hoax because NBC news reports that Trump says it.  They think it is a hoax because of what Trump says (or in many cases doesn't say).

If the issue really was how news outlets are reporting what Trump says, all he has to do is make a clear statement and settle it.  But the reporting is not the problem.  Trump is sending the message he wants to send.  His followers are receiving it just the way he wants them to receive it.  His message is the virus is no big deal, just send the kids back to school, head back to the office, go out for a beer, and don't worry about it.  Even if you catch it, it is just like the cold unless you are really old.

That message serves his best interest but is bad for the people of this country and for the economy.  And it is 100% Trump's message.  Don't try to blame someone else for this.

Hope Hicks is from "Central Casting" as I've heard Trump call those that "Look the part".........

That is probably a HUGE part of why she came back. Unfortunate for him and others affected.

I pray she recovers as well.

Sounds precautionary at the moment.

If it was precautionary wouldn't Melania go with him?  The WH said that she is having mild symptoms but will stay behind.  It is unclear what exactly is going on.

I don't think we know how serious this is yet.  There have been reports that he is fatigued, got a fever, had congestion, and has multiple risk factors.  Trump probably would do anything not to be hospitalized based on his character.

That's the story but it is hard to imagine Trump going to the hospital as a precaution.  That doesn't fit his persona. 

I certainly wouldn't go to the hospital as a precaution.  If you want to stay healthy, stay away from hospitals.  My father went to the hospital for a heart attack and came out with a colostomy.
