Morning Greatness: Trump, Melania Have Coronavirus In Wildest October Surprise Ever

Good Friday morning.

Here is what’s on the president’s agenda today:

  • The president hosts a phone call on COVID-19 support to vulnerable seniors


Here is the latest episode of Happy Hour with Julie and Liz

Trump, Melanie, Hope Hicks have the Chinese Virus

Let’s start with this:

Who expects anything less than this from the Washington Post? I certainly don’t.

On Thursday night it was announced that Trump, Melania and Hope Hicks have the coronavirus. I’m going to get off the internet as soon as I possibly can today because the social media propaganda outlets and the tabloid news slam books are going to be miserable.

The POTUS and Melania do not have symptoms right now while Hope Hicks is symptomatic. The president has cancelled his Friday rally but will hold a conference call today with vulnerable seniors. From the president’s physician:

“This evening I received confirmation that both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the SARS-coV-2- virus,” Conley said. “The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.”

“The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country’s greatest medical professionals and institutions,” he continued.

  1. The Chinese Communist Party finally got their man. Vicious!

  2. What test, what tested positive, presumptive symptoms, antigens Ag, antibodies Ab, at what titer?

    We with skin-in-the-game want to know. The conspiracy of ignorance masquerades as common sense.

  3. Sooner or later, we all will be exposed to this virus. It isn’t going away, the lockdowns, masks, and distancing can do nothing but hinder its spread toward herd immunity, there is no vaccine and no reliable timing for one, and the damages wrought by the establishment’s brain-dead (or conspiratorial, if you’re given to that view) response to it have only served to prolong the misery.

    For more than one reason, I wish the Trumps a speedy recovery. One of those reasons is that this takes him off the campaign trail at a crucial moment in the runup to the election. Without his surging rallies it’s more difficult to get the turnout needed to reelect him. We need to keep that in mind, urge every eevul righty we know to be sure to vote, and push for the goal line.

  4. Good grief!
    Next, I guess we will be wondering if Don Jr or Melania will get the 39,000 if Trump dies on a ventilator.

    He is already taking HCQ 200mg bid and a Z-Pak plus Zinc and in about 6 days will test negative.
    It is a shame the rest of us can’t get the same treatment if needed, over the counter.
    Thank Big Pharma.

  5. Okay, I’ll bite. What have you brilliant folks at AG done to the comments section? Did Discus raise the price for using their service?
    I can understand eliminating the obvious ugly and persistent trolls; be gone and good riddance. If you intend to moderate every comment, as apparently is the case, you’d better add more resources. There are some outstanding comment contributors that respond to these essays, adding thoughtful dialog and filling in the occasional holes left by authors. From what I see right now, their comments are in moderator purgatory.

    • Count me in on that purgatory status thing. This is awful. Disqus may have had it’s tolls but they were easily blocked and the unreadable threads with nothing more than name calling could be blocked too.

    • Ben, you are exactly correct.
      Of course they probably won’t publish this comment just like my earlier one on this article.

  6. Actually, those of us who do support Trump (your hatred is showing), think the one debate that we saw was enjoyable for put down of a man who has spent forty-seven years in public life, a man who has throughout his political life, ripped off the American people and something of a nasty jackass to boot. Paul Ryan wasn’t enough for ‘good old’ Joe and for your edification. PDJT isn’t getting out of the debates but this provides Joe the unique opportunity of sliding out of them himself. Joe has provided the American people with a unique look at his own miserable life and what a grifter he is comparable to the WJC family in depth and scope. That his family in who together with him has dipped into the public trough numerous times and is a glimpse into perversity and a life lived with both graft and corruption.

  7. You’re a fool he has a 99.8% of survival like any other healthy person, no different than a bad flu season.. It amazes everyone one of you democrats are exactly what you accuse Trump of being , it’s pathetic.. You have no moral compass and are intellectually dishonest….

  8. As Rush has said several times this year, there are still a lot of things that will happen between now and the election. Boy did this prove that to be true.
