I'm not going to chill until Biden tests negative

I donít get emotional about politics. Not worth the blood pressure. I do what I can, then attend to the other parts of my life.

However, I am a ball of anxiety this morning. Biden next to that screaming idiot. And we donít know which campaign staffers were wandering and mixing on Tuesday.

Iím not freaking out, but, ďPlease be fine. Please be fine. Please be fine,Ē has been coming up in my head several times an hour since finding out about shit heel.

3. I don't like that word

"pending"

It implies a second test to confirm a result they don't like.

6. We all know that one test is not necessarily definitive...

we're all waiting for answers.

8. Even if you test negative for the rapid test, you still want to wait for a more accurate test to be

sure. So it would be pending either way. And I don't think they said which test the Bidens took.

13. I do hope this is the scenario

Also, I'm guessing they wouldn't announce anything if it was positive, they'd wait to confirm.

So, perhaps my fear is unwarranted.

Nancy Pelosi said the same thing about her test.

16. Except results are almost instant

We have to assume they'd do the quick test followed by a confirmation of the longer test. As I noted above, hopefully the quick test was negative but they want to be sure before they announce.

22. It's scary waiting but it just depends on the type of test.

Hopefully they are using several, in utmost caution.

Deep breath. He will let us know. I'm holding on to a shred of optimism.

5. I read that this morning.

Personally, I wonít be entirely comfortable until I learn that Joe has tested negative for several days in a row.

Right now, however, my principal concern is for Speaker Pelosi. It is essential that she remain healthy. Sheís third in line.

9. But there is Pence ahead of her.

And Pence isn't likely to die from covid even if he were to test positive.

18. Pence supposedly tested negative this morning.

And yes, he is next in line, but it is almost certain that he was exposed to SARS-CoV-2 on AF1, and he may get sick soon. Speaker Pelosi needs to stay safe and healthy.

19. Yes. I found it funny that some people think it will go to Pelosi.

It has to happen that both Trump and Pence get very sick at the same time that Pence wouldn't be able to name his VP. That scenario is just so very unlikely and I don't the republican will ever let that happen even if it means they lie about Pence's condition.

20. Yes, it's very unlikely. Pence is younger than both Trump and Pelosi.

Pence is also in good shape. Chances that he becomes incapacitated from covid are not that high.

25. And even in the extremely unlikely chance that they both gets incapacitated,

we are talking about McConnell here. The same guy who held the SC seat for 400+ days and rushing one in right now with less than 40 days. There is a zero chance that McConnell won't do his thing to get Pence to name a VP before he is announced "incapacitated".

23. I'm going through this right now

Someone was in my home a week ago who tested positive after getting sick on Monday. Her whole household has since tested positive.

I wasnít there at the time and am unsure who in my place was exposed. But we all got tests yesterday and are quarantining. I think Iím fine, but others in the house may have gotten it. Contact tracing means being cautious as hell.

Itís fine. I have some PS4 games Iíve been meaning to get to all year.

11. Biden will need three consecutive tests over 10 days to be cleared and no temp for 24 hrs.

 

No more debates, Joe. Just stay home and rest and speak to us from your kitchen or den. You have the stage all to yourself now.

26. I'm quarantined after tangential exposure

And I wasnít as close to the situation as Biden.

I think an abundance of caution is necessary.
