    I wonder if he'll still attend the next debate on the 15th?

    Trump is going to use this to delay the election.

    I bet he says he was infected intentionally by the Democrats.

    I wish I could bring myself to send him my best wishes but I just cannot.

    I suspect he will try to use this to his benefit.

    He can't. Elections are conducted by the states and the dates by which they must provide their electors are fixed. Any red state that tries to delay their election is likely to simply find that they don't have any electors.

    This could be bad for him. He is in his seventies with co morbidities (bonespurs). This is the demographic most likely to succumb to the virus.

    'Trump infected by his aides'

    He will turn this to his advantage somehow.

    Biden should also claim he has COVID now too.

    It's the only thing about Trump that IS positive... ;)

    Hmmm. The cynic in me can't shake off the possibility of this being staged to avoid the next debate. And also to garner sympathy.

    And then when he recovers, he'll be 'the best recoverer' and it'll be used to downplay Covid-19 yet further.

    Although of course if he and the FLOTUS are genuinely ill, then I wish them a speedy, comfortable return to health, like any other human being.

    Good to know that he can't delay the election. It remains to be seen how he will try and play this to his advantage though.

    It was always going to be the smallest of things that nobody thought of that was going to be his Achilles heel

    You must be nice. I'm not.
    I hope Joe Biden doesn't get it.

    I'm a bit suspicious.
    Anyhoo... to quote someone wittier than me, "our thoughts and prayers are with the corona virus at this difficult time".

    C-19 was thought of. Trump and his entourage have been most cavalier with their lack of precautions against C-19. One good thing is that more people will now realise that you can't necessarily get away with flouting the advice concerning the pandemic.

    Can we not post gifs on here? The gif of the baby toddling in, doing a double take and quickly toddling out again might be a good representation of what the virus might be feeling...
