    What? Pence believes electrocution will "solve" homosexuality. There are only two good choices, and luckily both are on the same ticket.

    So let's check in with the White House.

    Our standard protocol is CDC best practices and recommendations. Facial coverings are recommended but not required. There's hand sanitizing stations located throughout the complex, frequent washing of hands and good hygiene is strongly recommended and social distancing is encouraged. So, I don't foresee those things changing.
    "Ah, you found their guidelines before Trump got sick. Surely they've changed them by now."

    Um...that's from today. They were confirming that there would be no changes.

    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.
    Geeze basically the only reason it dropped.
    While the jobless rate fell below that level, the labor force participation rate — the percentage of potential workers seeking jobs — fell 0.3 percent, indicating declining confidence in the ability to find work.

    Its odd I cannot find those attack articles on labor force participation rates i used to see under Obama all the time. hmmmm even the one on CNS just mostly talks about how trump was doing so well.

    Obama low 62.4% Trump 60.2% Current 61.4%

    Black participation rate was back into the 50's again. Guess he gave up bragging about them a few months ago huh?

    Permanent job losses also increased for the second consecutive month, rising by 345,000 to 3.8 million

    Average hourly earnings, month over month: 0.1% vs. 0.2% expected.

    12 month rolling wages decreased 3-4% from peak as employers roll back wage increases and unemployment bump ended

    "Best medical care available" really means very little when you have an illness that has no cure and borderline zero effective treatments.

    The only thing he is guaranteed is that he'll get a ventilator if there is a shortage, but those aren't in short supply. Other than that I don't see any other leg-up he has over us normies.

    Maybe he'll get a more comfortable bed?

    Nah there are number of treatments now we didn't have then from oral steroids or redicivir sure I butchered the name. I am sure Trump will be fine it's 2020 after all.

    dang, they are saying he has "mild symptoms." i don't believe anything from the WH, but expected they be saying he's doing perfectly fine, asymptomatic blahblah bullshit. Hope at least one of the symptoms is the lost of taste and smell, so he can't enjoy his KFC.

    With as much as they've actively downplayed his health concerns for the last 4 years, I have to wonder if "mild symptoms" is just another case of under-exaggeration.

    I'm bigly mad about this one in particular. Such a great guy and he's just getting back into work and that shit happens. Really hope they find that fuck.

    Virtually everyone hospitalized has access to remdesivir at the moment (though I think Florida was having issues with supply a short while ago) and it's not a miracle improvement over no treatment at all, it's just a lot better than nothing.

    If we had effective treatments virtually no one would be dying, and that's not the case.

    Still, at least Trump has hydroxychloroquine and injectable bleach.

    They all start with mild symptoms.

    The average is 18.5 days from first symptoms to death for non-survivors, so somewhere around October 20th is where things get interesting.

    I mean, the pedant in me wants to point out that prevention isn't treatment, but the part of me that's currently engaged in some serious schadenfreude just wants to laugh in Covid.

    Mike Lee diagnosed positive. He's on the judiciary committee. Whelp that's one less vote for ACB to get her in before election.

    No it's not. IIRC Senate is allowing for remote Committee meetings so there shouldn't be any hurdles there. Not sure about the Senate proper on votes, but there's plenty of time for him to recover and return to the Senate for the full vote.

    and...he just...he tweeted it out.

    I've seen some conservative pearl clutching over how Biden should be respectful and suspend his campaign...fuck that noise. Trump didn't extend that courtesy to Hillary when she had pneumonia, and we know he wouldn't suspend it if Biden got the virus.

    Full steam ahead in the Biden Train. Literally, because he's campaigning on a train.
