    That's secondary. The first concern is national security.

    Presuming that he hopefully makes it through the encounter. I wouldn't be desperate enough to contract a life threatening illness just for a pardon.

    I was surprised by some posts (on other forums) where people were spinning tales of him faking this to get out of legal trouble. I suppose it's possible but that seems very far-fetched, even more at his age and with whatever underlying health conditions he may have. Besides, he flicks off lawsuits like they are dust on his sleeve.

    I do not think so either, but you never know how an event like this can change a person

    Just think about it. The last time we as a nation were concerned about the succession of power was way back in 1981 when Reagan was shot.. The only real concern was when the Secretary of State, Alexander Haig, said he was "in control". No he wasn't.

    I have no desire to make fun of Bunker Boy, besides the name I use for him.
    I hope he survives and everybody else who got infected in the WH. The others, like the fund raiser, or the rallies, I do not give a dam you asked for it.
    There is to very bad outcomes in it.
    1. He has a mild case and than goes on gloating about the China Flu.
    2. He dies of it, which I do not hope. He is the President, no matter how much he disgusts me.

    The country is in turmoil. We do not need a dead President during this time. We need proper elections.

    But, there is always the BUT.
    Bunker Boy needs to have a serious beating by the virus, not just a mild case, so he finally takes it serious and quits talking about the flu

    I am worried for the man, he is over 70, to fat, high blood pressure and what else................., we do not know.

    This not good.

    We're talking about TRUMP.

    It would require this for a real change.

    We went into a 20 year war with a group that killed 5,000 americans on 9-11, but when we have 200,000 its just something we cant control ?

    No, I agree with you that it'll still get reported "at some point", but that's different than saying "we, the people, must always know".

    No Hillary or any Leader with their citizens in mind would have shut down for a few months in a unified fashion

    Everyone behind it from the top down.

    The Virus would have been stopped in it tracks Like it was done in many successful nations

    Trump has never poised a unified assault on the Virus ............ only political events disguised as Virus new conferences

    Texas and Florida who are Leading in Virus deaths are examples of Trumps Failures

    The bottom line is Facts

    With Trump as Leader America who has 4 % of the worlds population and 25 % of the Virus infections

    He has some shady business practices, but I think someone else is the mastermind behind them. ;-0

    Yep. I guess some people get drunk with (assumed) power.

    I need a few of these. I know some people... LOL

    I'm not trying to be dense. How are those different? I know it's not "up to the minute news" but it cannot be withheld indefinitely, can it?

    My husband and I just toured the talking heads. We hardly ever do this. Two things are interesting to me.

    1. Don Jr., on Carlson said, "He is in a bubble. If he can get it, I guess anybody can.
    2. There is a talking points memo that the D heads are spewing. We heard it twice, almost word for word. "Let's remember that the president's health care is on our dime. "

    #1 rates a "Huh? You are just figuring this out?"
    #2 rates an "Ew."

    Btw - does Tucker Carlson always look confused?

    "Overall, our systematic reviews suggested that social distancing measures could be effective interventions to reduce transmission and mitigate the impact of an influenza pandemic. However, the evidence base for these measures was derived largely from observational studies and simulation studies; thus, the overall quality of evidence is relatively low."

    the politicians and political figures always improve their legacy if sick or have untimely deaths

    a few examples

    Abe Lincoln ...murdered at 56...he may be the most popular president of all time
    had booth missed I wonder what his future would have been after politics..would he still be adored??

    JFK..murdered at 46...a known hound dog that enjoyed good life and pretty women...
    the press did not report on his extra curricular activity...if he was not murdered how many women would have lawsuits against him??

    MLK...murdered at 39...another know womanizer ...
    a famous movie producer was not allowed to make a film about King when he would not cover up kings womanizing..

    Richard Nixon..ole tricky dick...lived to 81...after resigning from office he was basically labeled a scoundrel until his death
    once dead, he was no longer a scoundrel and was forgiven by the press and is now an american treasure

    FDR... polio..no doubt his illness played a part in his life and his legacy

    the only thhing that will save trumps legacy is he does not recover from covid19

    if trump lives he will go to prison at worst or move to russia to avoid prosecution

    A very general statement from the FBI.
    I suppose my view...which is that the liberal media is basically making up Qanon for means of targeting conservatives and putting them on the defensive.....is a conspiracy theory!!! And dangerous!!! Ban me.

    Even with the high infection rate, it is still a considerable amount of time before every gets infected.

    The hope of a vaccine that may occur in the coming year will save millions of people who don't get the infection or get less severe cases.

    I know it seems many of the Trumpies seem to be indifferent to the pain and the deaths that will occur if the country tries to minimize the infections in the meantime, some people prefer to cause tge pain and suffering of the millions of this loss.

    You might onto something here. I was just reading about Bolsonaro (Brazil) and Johnson (England) and their respective recoveries from the virus.

    Bolsonaro got a mild case and played it like he was invincible. His poll numbers soared.

    Johnson had an epiphany after he nearly died. He changed his entire attitude toward COVID. His popularity soared.

    As stated elsewhere, I wish no ill will on the president or his family or staff members. I hope for speedy recoveries for everyone impacted by the virus.
