We deserve an independent diagnosis from Walter Reed

Flame away, but trump is a liar. I need to see receipts and I hope Biden's camp insisted on some form of proof before taking down his ads.

Researchers at Cornell University published a study this week showing that Mr. Trump was the single largest driver of false and misleading information about the coronavirus. Mentions of Mr. Trump made up nearly 38 percent of the overall “misinformation conversation,” the researchers said.

Mr. Trump has also stated on at least 34 separate occasions since February that the coronavirus would go away.

“We’re in an environment where conspiracies are thriving, in part because the president encourages them,” said Melissa Ryan, chief executive of Card Strategies, a consulting firm that researches disinformation. “And we have a White House comms operation that gives the press and public disinformation constantly.”

The situation has created “the perfect storm for people to assume that the White House isn’t being truthful,” Ms. Ryan said.

1. sigh... you still think it's a con?

Do you think Trump's ego would allow him to go through all of this? I could somehow buy the "he got it but never any symptoms" but there is no way Trump would want the image of him rushing to the hospital.

5. If Cammo thinks he's faking, perhaps he can explain the three reporters and the president...

of Notre Dame testing positive after attending the same event.

Besides, what possible benefit is there to him being unable to campaign for the last month? It's the only part of the job he likes.

7. Have the reporters come forward?

Regardless, why would we just take the word of a liar? It makes no sense. This is the same guy who's trying to dismantle the USPS and toss all paper ballots.
