COVID and POLITICIANS

So now we have Marc Short and four other bigwigs on Pence’s team testing POSITIVE.  ALL Republicans.

We had the Trump family, we had Chris Christi, we had Mike Hill, McEnany, Hope Hicks and many other Republicans with COVID.    Poor Herman Cain died of it.  ALL Republicans.    

Have Democrat politicians contracted COVID or, since they’ve been about the only ones consistently wearing masks, is that why they actually aren’t?   I believe a few Kamala Harris staff got it, but anybody else BIG??

MANY of my Conservative friends are still voting for Trump, but all of them have added “I just wish, particularly after having suffered with COVID,   he’d softened and empathized in speeches, and told the truth about it.”

Me, too.  I knew the Left would gain points because of COVID.   “the President didn’t do enough!” I believe he did do enough, so do most people.  But I didn’t think Trump would lose himself votes because of COVID and, trust me, HE IS. 😦  On his own.

I’d have thought that, by now, Mr. Trump would have realized how very scared people are of this virus, and justifiably so (I have a friend with her sister and mother-in-law, in their 80’s and 90’s now with COVID, to mention one)……he needs to say SOMETHING empathetic, SOMETHING understanding, SOMETHING true……….and newsworthy.

Meanwhile, what Democrat politicians have caught COVID??

    Sure seems suspicious only repubs have gotten it and it ain’t because dems are wearing masks – they’re not except when on camera.

    Yeah, but they got other problems . . . .

    Pelosi has mad cow disease, Biden is 4th stage Alzheimer’s, Schiff prematurely donated his brain to Marty Feldman, and Schumer has a rare case of brain-cell eating street slime.

  3. Trump is walking a balancing act, supporting masks to some degree, while recognizing that they are unpopular with many of us who recognize they are an ineffective measure that is really geared to condition us to government over reach.
    The DNC controlled media may well be hiding Dem Covid cases.
    The real deal is, how many infected are getting incapacitated?
    Of the Repubs mentioned, how many are convalescing, or merely being sidelined by bogus quarantines?

    Not to worry kids. Should the Harris/Biden team win on November 3rd the ChiCom virus will dissipate on November 4th and we can all dispose of our germ breeding masks and once again release our CO2 emissions into unencumbered by the Covid mafia lurking, waiting to point out the non-mask wearers.

    Kid, I think Dems mostly wear them in camera, you’re right, but I think they are more careful in general. It IS suspicious.

    I’ve always wondered if anybody could have purposefully done it at the Barrett/Rose Garden announcement…I don’t think anybody’d risk getting it just TO pass it on to Reps, …but well, I’m being stupid. !!!

    BOCOPRO! SO TRUE 🙂 HAAA!!!

    ED…He always knows his rabid supporters are “It won’t happen to ME” types….and “The government isn’t telling ME what to do!” no matter how bad the disease is..!!

    I think the DNC just might be hiding cases….
    AND I think YOUR POINT ABOUT INCAPACITATION IS THE MOST IMPORTANT POINT OF ALL ABOUT COVID:

    THE NEWS SAYS “FIVE MORE OF PENCE’S CLOSE ADVISERS HAVE COVID!’ Sounds like they’re ALL GOING TO DIE, doesn’t it? WHen in fact I happen to know that at least Marc Short is doing GREAT, his family tests negative, and he’ll be back soon!

    ANYBODY HERE THINK THE MEDIA’D MAKE A BIG STINK ANNOUNCING ‘PENCE’S CLOSE ADVISERS HAVE THE FLU!!!” ???…….FLU SYMPTOMS ARE FAR WORSE IN 99% OF COVID CASES.

    PETER..COVID MAFIA…so true! I don’t think five minutes of news time was given to the fact that the CDC said 86% of recent COVID cases happened IN PEOPLE WHO WORE A MASK MOST OR ALL OF THE TIME.

    WHAT?! 🙂

    NY/NJ local event this past weekend you won’t find in your media outlets:
    A caravan of autos festooned with American flags and Trump banners making its way from Coney Island, Brooklyn to midtown Manhattan was pelted with eggs, rocks and other lefty missiles of peace.. Seven family members in one car were treated to a peaceful dose of pepper spray.

    Bottom line is that for most the virus is not deadly. The option is to destroy America’s economy. For young people the flu is more deadly. Herman Caine was at high risk. Over 99 percent survive. I am at high risk so I am hunkered down. Not fair to expect the rest of the world to stop for me,

    BUnkerville, It’s why I hammer on how many COVID patients do well with it….Sadly, the flu killing more isn’t the case anymore. Most people over 65 are at slightly higher risk, many are high risk.

    And yes, the one mistake Trump made was not recommending only older folks stay home…but WHO KNEW? More restaurants would still be open, schools would, etc….

    @Ed: “The real deal is, how many infected are getting incapacitated?” Yes – dead or dire like permanent organ damage from the advanced, hypoxic state.

    I totally believe the media would hide Dem’s difficulties. Hillary is one clear example. Biden himself is another. If he were a Republican they would have his gaffs, political vagaries, and inchoate and unsupported ideas on 24/7. They would make jokes that you couldn’t even call him a solopsist!

    It is encouraging to see so many be diagnosed positive and functioning fully in a short time. In the beginning, the first laboratories to display this WuFlu were the cruise ships, and surprisingly that first data did not indicate that the elderly would be the biggest targets. The outbreak in Washington state suggested otherwise. Then Cuomo forced contagious patients to be accepted in nursing homes which lacked the protections needed – when hospital space was widely available! But this was not known when Trump closed the door to China travel, to the howls of the left.

    BAYSIDER, Madelaine’s 82 yr old sis is doing better already, though we know that COVID can attack harder after a ‘first wave’ in the body, that’s just a fact. So far, she’s only been extremely fatigued and, today, she sounded very well and very scared but optimistic. Her husband has Blood Type 0, so, if some of the info is correct, he might be better able to stave it off even at 85.

    Gov Cuomo’s just published a book raving about how well he handled COVID. THe fun never stops.

    PETER, I was surprised to hear 83%, that’s for sure. But I myself have attended a Republican Jewish meeting here, where John BOlton spoke about 10 years ago, and it wasn’t huge, but they were there! Yes, most Jews are very Left….

    Mal, It’s not that he’s DOING the rallies that bothers me (tho I’m seriously worried about his health with this astonishing schedule), it’s that he’s talking even MORE horrendously than usual…SERIOUSLY, I would NEVER EVER vote for a man who spoke like this…Unless I knew it’s HE who can possibly save our country!…And it sure isn’t Biden who will do anything but totally destroy us.

    How bad IS the disease?
    When you say “bad”, do you mean everyone who gets it dies, or everyone gets it?
    This is a bogus pandemic. Period. It is a scare tactic.
    There is a real disease. People die from it. But damn few do statistically, and the ones who do were killed by their governors in their nursing homes or had co-morbidities.
    I would never say I’m not going to get it. I believe I’ve had it already.
    My brother had it, barely knew it except for the testing because of another issue.
    His “rabid” supporters is a slur.
    You are not an enthusiastic supporter, we get it.
    You let your feelings get in the way.
    You cringe when he talks. It’s your right to do that.
    But don’t call me rabid because I’m enthusiastic about a guy who, well I’m not going to list all his accomplishments. Others have done that. Like the Family Research Council.

    This was his to lose……and he’s doing it ONLY becausE of his MOUTH. ……..I’d NEVER bring a child to see this president, and I find that very, very sad….almost unAmerican.

    BOCOPRO…that’s right….Except if we get it, it’s not so fun. It’s like SURGERY….people say “No biggie.” unless it’s THEIR surgery. 225,000 dead is a lot of dead folks.
    And no, the flu’s numbers are nowhere near 225,000 people. It’s usually around 60,000.

    I know it is 2:00 AM, and commenting now is not very cool. But, I will, anyway.

    1. COVID-19 is a real disease. However, the deaths are way over estimated because a great number died with COVID, not because of COVID. In other words many who died tested positive for the coronovirus, but there were confounding factors. Remember people asking what happened to all the heart attack deaths? If someone died of a heart attack, but tested positive for COVID, that was put on the death cert. Hospitals get a bonus for treating COVID patients because of Trump’s CARE act. Bad numbers were guaranteed because of this.
    2. Cases are not always cases. The number of positive tests for COVID are counted as verified cases, Yet, most of these cases require NO medical attention or treatment. So, there positive tests and there are real cases. The system is defined to bloat the numbers to alarming levels.

    The numbers of cases and deaths are way off, and Trump knows this.

    ALL correct and so well stated, thanks.
    Yes, I have said for a while what you’re saying TRUMP KNOWS THIS. He knows a WHOLE LOT OF THINGS that he can’t talk about……..I firmly believe that. Particularly about FAUCI because FAUCI is not Trump’s type of man and he has to keep saying he likes him……..though he frequently takes little digs………..Trump can’t let FAUCI go because Fauci’s supposedly an “EXPERT” and it wouldn’t look good. SOmetimes it’s important for Trump to play the game, sadly …

    I keep feeling Trump’s gone a bit too far on the payments for COVID….he always says “They didn’t deserve this and didn’t do anything that caused it, it was CHINA”… It’s just not like him and I’m curious about this.
