Trump Has a Cough and Fever

Gabriel Sherman: “The biggest unknown is the state of the president’s health. This morning the New York Times reported that Trump is exhibiting ‘coldlike symptoms.’ Two Republicans in close contact with the White House told me that Trump’s symptoms have included a cough and fever. Melania is said to be asymptomatic.”

“Meanwhile, Hicks has experienced more pronounced symptoms than the president. Two sources said she has had a high fever and a cough, with one source adding she lost her sense of smell. Hicks is said to be frustrated with Trump for taking such a cavalier approach to the virus. She was one of the few West Wing staffers to wear a mask in meetings, which her colleagues chided her for… Sources told me Hicks is also upset that news coverage has made it appear that she gave Trump the virus, when in fact no one knows where he got it.”

1. I saw a doctor on MSNBC (didn't catch her name) who said that the fact that he has symptoms

so soon after a positive test is very troubling.

2. What show was she on?

I was thinking the same thing, but I'm not a doctor. Good to have a doctor confirm that.

3. I don't remember. I'm listening at work so can't keep close tabs. It was before Chuck Todd came on

if that's any help.

4. Thanks. Trump was also reported as "lethargic" at his fundraiser yesterday

White House chief of staff Mark Meadows said Trump was dealing with mild symptoms, but that he was "very energetic" and wanting to stay engaged in the day-to-day workflow. Trump's absence from the governor's call is sure to raise questions, however, about whether he will be able to carry out his usual duties without issue.

Trump was reportedly lethargic during a fundraiser in New Jersey on Thursday, which he attended even after the White House learned of Hicks's positive test.

6. I heard another reporter (Peter Baker, I think) mention his lethargy and the fact that

he fell asleep on the plane, which is not like him to do.

15. "troubling" is not a diagnosis, merely an opinion.

"troubling"? To whom?

5. If so, that sounds like a really short incubation period!

In any event, the campaign goes on. There's a white supremacist to defeat.

10. Looks like yet another coverup. There are now reports he was showing symptoms on Wednesday.

Trump’s Closest Aides Feared He Was Falling Sick on Wednesday, Says Report

A lot of questions are still to be answered about President Donald Trump’s positive COVID-19 test—including whether he and his wife Melania are displaying any symptoms of the disease. But, according to a report from Bloomberg News, some of Trump’s closest confidantes started fearing for his health as early as Wednesday. The report states that some Trump aides noticed he appeared to feel poorly that day and noted how exhausted he seemed—but they dismissed it as extreme fatigue from a relentless campaign schedule and Tuesday night’s debate. Further to that, The New York Times reported that Trump has been displaying mild cold-like symptoms. Official accounts have not confirmed whether or not Trump is feeling ill—the president’s physician, Sean Conley, only said that Trump and Melania “are both well at this time.”

13. Kind of like a 10-pound Mormon baby born four months after a wedding.

I suspect the Trump team was keeping something from us.

9. Imagine what kind of patient he is

Whiny, grumpy, demanding, mean to everybody, throwing things, whining some more, yelling, insulting everyone there and absent.

And that's on a regular day.

Maybe they should call in nurse Niels Högel.
