Grace and civility is why the Dems lose. If Biden caught Corona and were in the hospital, the right would have a field day. Trump would be mocking him on Twitter, "this is why he was hiding!", saying it proves wearing masks are useless, saying Biden is weak and isn't strong enough to be President, saying he's already thinking of having Kamala take over, etc. They'd be ridiculing to no end and you'd even fake see reports of Biden "taking a turn for the worse", conspiracy theories (remember Hillary's body double?), and more.

Trump's put thousands at risk with his rallies and put our national security at risk as well because of his arrogance and selfishness. Biden and the Dems should be on the attack, posting video after video of Trump and the Rs mocking masks, downplaying the virus, saying everything is under control and we have the best numbers. Not civil? Not graceful? Insensitive? Insulting? Well "fk your feelings, snowflakes". Don't dish it out if you can't take it.

Don't want to post all the tweets but this is the 1st of like 7 or 8 about Trump's health and what may or may not be true. Don't know what's true or not anymore

Real chaos today. The White House gave a press conference where they said Trump is starting to get better and is doing well. But then right afterward, a "source" who wanted to be quoted anonymously (but is believed to be Chief of Staff Mark Meadows) told the reporters that actually Trump's vitals are not great and that he could be getting worse. The source said that the next 48 hours could be crucial to seeing whether he'll recover fully. Hard to know what to believe; I guess we just have to wait for more information.

I gotta say, it is quite a stunning feeling to know that you could wake up in the morning or check your phone during the day and find out that maybe the President has died. I do not wish that on him, but wow, the idea that we are at this point is really shocking. Hard to focus on anything else today.

Here's a little sampling of Christie's coaching: "OK, when Biden starts talking, you talk. Hurl insults at him. Attack his family."

The Lincoln Project should run a commercial showing Trump at the debate mocking Biden for always wearing a mask.

That would be a good one. I don't wish death on Trump but I don't feel sorry for him for contracting the disease after his downplaying and disregard for the disease. He put others at risk due to his actions. I can easily imagine 100,000 US deaths instead of the 200,000 US deaths and counting if everybody was told to wear a mask from the start and socially distance.

Apparently the two photos released of him “working” turned out to be him signing his name on a blank piece of paper, and despite him being photographed in two different rooms, dressed differently, the photos were taken 5 minutes apart.

What is smallball? I play basketball. I'm not a regular big man. I can switch from the center to the guards. The game is evolving. You got dudes like Joel Embiid, Anthony Davis, all these 7-footers, doing everything. There's no stopping us. - Ayton

And the Dems and Biden should've been pounding that message home this entire weekend. They could've owned Trump this weekend, but nah.

Meanwhile, the bullshit never stops flowing.."I learned a lot about covid. I learned it by really going to school, this is the real school. This isn't the 'let's read the books' school." I'll bet he gets out of there, doubles down on everything including in-person rallies, claims to know everything about covid (more than the doctors), says it's totally treatable and pushes herd immunity. Let's wait and see..

Oh, great. Here comes “I know more about COVID than Fauci because I’ve actually had it.” That’ll sell well on the right.

Today WH Press Sec Kayleigh McEnany announces that she too has COVID. And her top assistant. The hits just keep on coming...

So...another non-story in like a week right? Trump will be cracking jokes about it at a rally in Pennsylvania next week?

"I've actually had the flu and it was much worse than Covid"

"We have great drugs to treat covid, we don't need a vaccine. We'll have a vaccine and it'll be a great vaccine, the best vaccine, but the drugs we have to treat covid are just as good and are available to all Americans."

"I had it and now I can't get it which is great. I think it'd be great if everyone got it so that then we'll all have it and can get over it."

Also, correct me if I'm wrong but his doctors at Walter Reed, the ones who are lying and covering up and mispeaking and changing their stories, are Naval Doctors which mean they take orders from him?

He feels better than he did 20 years ago! Not only is it not bad, people, the virus is good for you! Wow, I’m going out to contract it today! I can’t wait to feel better than I did 20 years ago! Unbelieveable! Could it be possible that COVID-19 is the fountain of youth?!

Fucking hell. How dumb does one have to be to believe this bullshit?

It's impossible for him to be "cured" of COVID after 3-4 days. Like basically everything he touches, he's going to make the situation worse for everyone at the WH by returning so soon.

Fewer and fewer folks -- but still far too many.
