3. I'm really wondering if Trump

has tested positive and they won't tell us. If he really did go to Walter Reed the other day, maybe that was why.

I honestly don't think the White House would tell us if Trump got COVID-19. They aren't known to tell us the truth.

7. Several spouses and significant others of Trump officials have tested positive

which makes it hard to believe that these assholes have not. They've been meeting with all sorts of people in close quarters without masks. Several of his security detail and staff have tested positive. It all seems very suspicious.

12. Very suspicious

I think there are far more cases in the White House than they are letting on.

10. If so, they'll only tell us once he tests negative

so to say it was no big deal. Hard to imagine at his weight and age how CV would leave him upright, but guess he's just inhuman enough to escape consequences.
