    What do you mean he can't do both? Faking something and then pretending he recovered quickly while at the same time missing debates that he's gonna look bad in? Why not? The stupid knows no limits...

    Ah, makes sense. Well in that case we'll hear nothing of it unless he dies.

    I'm about 40% "it's a hoax so he doesn't have to attend the next debates" and 60% ".... irony..."

    Anywho, shit'll get weird if . . . uh . . . Pence is suddenly President.

    Pence can't win the election. He's not Trump, he can't lead the cult. Hell, I don't think Pence would win the election against Harris.

    Also, which is more likely:

    A) A hairbrained scheme to get out of the debates so comprehensive it includes activating part of the continuity of government contingency to make it appear like you have a lethal illness, or -

    B) An idiot who's spent more than half a year calling a lethal infection a hoax and spreading misinformation about preventative measures ended up catching said lethal infection after taking no precautions.

    Now that you put it that way... considering it's Trump, I'm not actually sure.

    Yeah, Trump had two "good" options for bailing on the debate by calling it rigged -- Biden's drug test and Biden's ear canal search. If he was going to bail, he'd have picked something less dangerous to himself than "I have a gonhorrea". Oh wait, "I have coronavirus".

    Nah. If Trump dies, Pence will be President until January but he has no chance of winning an election . . . I hope.

    Chris Christie was in the room when Trump was debate prepping.

    He says there were five or six of them, and nobody was wearing a mask.

    He also says he's going to get tested but he's currently fine.

    But remember that voluntary 14 day quarantine? That'll get some of them cancelled and he can't do anything about it, the poor man... he'll come up with some other thing for the remaining few weeks, surely.

    Don't worry, I'm sure it'll just be a mild case of window poisoning if anything's amiss. /s

    Chinese state-run media is already trolling Trump.

    So, how's that trade war going?

    Yeah well, stupid does what stupid do. I didn't say it was a perfect plan, I don't even think it's likely, because such a stunt would probably disqualify him for most people that are on the fence... maybe even some of the normal Republicans. The Trumpkins would of course celebrate it as the final act in his attempt to sabotage the US of A on Putin's behalf, but who knows at this point what's true or not with him. I treat everything as a lie, makes life much easier and on average he proves me right...

    Trump testing positive is enough for some governors, some mayors, and some venue owners to just end Trump events. The CPD isn't going to fuck around with this of course, but at this point, I don't think anyone else will, either.

    Trump can't afford another Tulsa, but nobody wants to be the second Tulsa even more.

    The last jobs report before the election is out now.

    Unemployment is 7.9%.

    While this is better than early projections, it had just edged under 5% in 2016.

    In addition to never getting the GDP growth he promised, he'll also hit the election with fewer jobs than he started. All that work "he" did lowering unemployment from 5 to 4? Boom. Doubled. Not that he delivered on his promises if you stopped him at 2019, either, but this election isn't for Hypothetical President.

    So the question at the top of my mind is if Trump's condition worsens to the point where the 25th amendment is invoked and Pence becomes acting President can Pence still break a tie on a certain supreme court nomination vote?

    Mnuchin tests negative, which is a lucky break for basically everyone. He's been the primary relief bill contact for the WH.
