    The worst part of this is going to be when he recovers and he gives a speech like "These doctors, great people let me tell ya, they had never seen a case of covid so bad, no really you wouldn't believe how bad it was. The doctors said this was the worst, would kill anyone else. Thought I was a goner, they really did. Then I took the miracle cure! No really it's miraculous, only way to describe it, never been tested before but I said Doc, you gotta let me try this stuff. It was amazing! Really a miracle. The doctors were amazed, they had never seen anyone recover so quick. They said you got to get this stuff approved right now, right this second and I agree, I am going to put the best people on this let me tell you...".

    Given that you've placed no timeline on your prediction, I'd say that's a safe bet.

    So either "it'll happen in two weeks" or "never," depending on how much trust you place in him.

    The WSJ solves the mystery of when Trump's positive test result came back, Thursday or Friday.

    "Yes".

    He hid the first positive result, did an interview with Hannity in which he did not mention he tested positive, and waited for the second test.\

    So the doctors either ignored CDC directions, or waving to his followers medically supports Trump's life.

    Honestly I would more expect him to go on about how amazing his immune system is, doctors never seen an immune system like his, was like he wasn't even sick they said!
    Since in the past he's thought he has like super genes or some shit like that.

    Yes and he almost certainly will be at minimum 16th October

    If he is put on a ventilator, he has to temporarily hand over to Pence as per 25th Amendment Section 3. Or if he refuses to do so, it has to be done via Section 4.

    I am not a doctor, but I am pretty sure they would put you in a coma when you are put on a ventilator. You can't really stay awake with a plastic tube down your throat. And even if I am wrong, you can't do the President's job while intubated for days.

    And no matter how messed up this administration is, even they wouldn't keep it secret if power is temporarily handed over to the VP.

    Is anyone else just waiting for him to die at this point?

    I still don't think he's going to die.

    But I'm holding my breath, tensely waiting for that call to enact the 25th.

    I'm unsure whether he will or won't, but I am just waiting for him to die at this point.

    Not great news for anyone in Team Trump hoping to get PA again -- Toomey is reading the storm warnings.
    Looking ahead, this Toomey news is great. 2022 was already looking rosy (again) for Senate, and this just makes it better.

    @Fugus and @cubby, I'd add DC statehood onto that list that was posted earlier. Doesn't hurt that DC is like... 90% Democrat.

    Him going on a ventilator would be ideal, for several reasons. If he's going to die, it needs to be on Nov 5 or so, after resoundingly losing to Biden.

    Pence getting more security is a big indicator that something is coming up. Perhaps they are just priming up for that possibility, as it has become more possible.

    Agreed. DC and Puerto Rico statehood. Expand SCOTUS. Bolster the ACA. So many top tier items to do.

    Unsurprisingly, according to the Wall Street Journal, Trump reportedly tried to cover up his positive test for COVID.

    Given the rate of infection, some would call that a terrorist act.
