- 10:32 PM - October
- We had just gotten
the kids to bed when I saw it on Facebook: Trump
and Melania have it. I told Talya and we turned
on the iPad and hit the news...
- And there it is.
The moment it was confirmed. Wow.
Now, of course the news all evening was that Hope
Hicks had it and Trump and Melania would be
quarantining because of that. I called bullshit
immediately on Facebook:
- "My best
- Trump tested
positive on a fast test and theyre not
announcing it until the blood test comes in. And even
then they may not announce it. Hes quarantined
now... and the rest of this month is up in the air.
- And if he is
incapacitated because hes on a ventilator, Pence
takes over. Could be a help for undecideds if they
think Trump wont be in charge.
nothing good about this news. Not one month before the
- And then added
- Talking with
Morris Will O'Kelly brings up the question of National
Security and when you would tell the public the
president had a deadly virus.
- Not until you
- So its
plausible he DOES have it, they use Hicks as cover for
him being out of the public eye for two weeks to see
if he can fight it. If he cant, then
theyll have no choice but to have Pence take
over temporarily until he beats it or of course,
finding it hard to believe hes willing to self
quarantine for 14 days simply because its the
responsible thing to do when someone close to you gets
- 90 minutes after
that he changes his story. What a stupid lie. And he
must be sick if he's saying it now. Not asymptomatic.
I cannot fathom they can hide all of that but they'll
- So my thoughts are
all over the place and it's split between political
and documentarianism. I should just call this a
religion at this point, but I've explained before (and
is quite clear in The Journey) that I compartmentalize
life from WAY in the future looking back.
Everything is a chapter in a book (a month on The
Journey) and when you look back on everything your
perspective changes. So right off the bat? The idea
that the story of 2020 ends with the death of a
president who spread more disinformation than anyone
on the planet needlessly confusing people and
indirectly killing hundreds of thousands? Yeah that's
good. That helps future generations. That helps people
NOW! That keeps things CLOSED. That makes people take
it seriously. So yes, I absolutely want him to
die. I know of NO OTHER WAY people are going
to understand this and when the NEXT virus hits?
We need to be able to literally play a video of that
stupid motherfucker downplaying it,
LITERALLY MAKING FUN OF BIDEN AT THE DEBATES FOR WEARING A MASK,
and then being postive 2 days later. That is clearly
the best possible outcome for humankind.
And that's really all I give a fuck about. Now,
politically? I'm scared. I'm scared that he's gonna
die before the election (or be really sick) and Pence
will be an option for people who don't like Trump. I
don't like that. That sucks. I want
TRUMP ON THE BALLOT. I want him to die
from COVID on November 4th so he can't start a fucking
civil war, not next week which throws everything into
chaos. So I'm all sorts of anxious that this is going
to be a problem. That being said, this ain't great for
him politically too... clearly this is an
embarrassment that you now can't walk back. I mean, 30
days out from the election he now has
NO CHOICE but to quarantine for
AT LEAST 14 days. And if he's really sick? Oh
shit, he's done for the entire month. I mean,
there's no hiding that. There's a very real chance
we've heard the last words from Trump...
- ...there's also
the chance (and a 95% chance at that even with him
being obese and old) he's fine and comes out in two
weeks saying it's just like the flu and no big deal.
Which would be disastrous for the country. Oh Jesus...
it would FLING OPEN the doors of malls all over
the place as holiday shopping takes over and we're
seeing 3,000 deaths a DAY. Oh fuck that scares me.
Again, this is why I want the man to be
REALLY REALLY SICK and/or die. It ain't
political, man. That's the documentarian in me trying
to find a solution that will help ourspecies for the
next 50 years. He could literally be the greatest
history lesson of all-time...
...or he could come off unscathed, be fine, and we're
even worse off than we were before.
Time to wait and see. Jesus, what a time to really
have to bear down and finish the Meeting Michael edit
and NOT watch the news.
<throws hands up>
- PS - I guess
it should be noted that half my timeline is people
thinking this is fake. It isn't fake. If you know
politics, you know that this ain't fake. You don't go
from mocking Biden for his use of masks to getting the
virus 48 hours later. I could see the sympathy
play maybe a few months ago? But not in October. This
is not the surprise they wanted.
