Trump: The First Person In The World To Get Coronavirus And Be Healthier Five Days Later

I should have known the post-Trump-Getting-COVID era would be more surreal, with more mind-bending stupidity, than what came before (which was already extremely hard to fathom). I have a weak imagination, perhaps. It's one of the many reasons I don't make a living writing dystopian neo-Nazi fiction. 

What a fucking morning.

Amid all the essential questions that the White House refuses to answer about Donald Trump and Covid-19, journalists should pay particular attention to the ones it is refusing to answer most aggressively.

Possibly chief among those is: When was Trump's last negative test? Reporters have repeatedly asked, and the Trump team steadfastly refuses to say, even though there ought to be nothing remotely controversial about it. . . .

We need to find out when Trump's last negative test was. We need to find out how often Trump was tested. And of course we need to find out if he had a positive test before the ones on Thursday. . . .

If Trump can be shown to have known or suspected that he was infected on Tuesday — or earlier — then the world will know he chose to endanger Biden and everyone else at the debate rather than do the responsible thing and bow out.
