4. No. That's silly. Pray for him.

Psalm 109 v. 6-17


6
Appoint an evil man to oppose him; let an accuser stand at his right hand.
7
When he is tried, let him be found guilty, and may his prayers condemn him.
8
May his days be few; may another take his place of leadership.
9
May his children be fatherless and his wife a widow.
10
May his children be wandering beggars; may they be driven from their ruined homes.
11
May a creditor seize all he has; may strangers plunder the fruits of his labor.
12
May no one extend kindness to him or take pity on his fatherless children.
13
May his descendants be cut off, their names blotted out from the next generation.
14
May the iniquity of his fathers be remembered before the LORD; may the sin of his mother never be blotted out.
15
May their sins always remain before the LORD, that he may cut off the memory of them from the earth.
16
For he never thought of doing a kindness, but hounded to death the poor and the needy and the brokenhearted.
17
He loved to pronounce a curse-- may it come on him; he found no pleasure in blessing-- may it be far from him.

5. Pretty sure if the message was "no big deal" they wouldn't take him to Walter Reed

More likely he had it all week and knew it but they hid it until symptoms got serious.

6. It's easy to understand why people would think this, but it's not a ruse

Before the trip to WR I was kind of suspicious, but now there are just far too many people involved for any kind of secret plan to stay secret.

9. Three Republican senators now have it.

Any more and that would affect their plans to ram Barrett through.

So, no. I don’t think it’s a ruse at this point.

11. Who does Trump owe Hundreds of millions to?

Putin perhaps?

At Walter Reed to protect himself from Putin's clutches because he has agents all over the place, maybe the Trump circle?

I am speculating, but the thought had crossed my mind.

13. I doubt it. He'll probably be on a vent within a week.

We wouldn't even hear about it unless he was really sick.

15. The trip to Walter Reed started reducing my suspicions.

Getting that many people involved who are acting in official capacities that are outside The Trump Show was affirming. Plus, there are many tracing/contact reports and others reporting infection, so we’re getting a good idea of how they all spread it.

18. I didn't start becoming convinced until I seen that.

Just what in the hell does everyone think is so outrageous, when tRUMP has been lying about everything the last 4 years and all his life?

To be honest, I am extremely distrusting of any White House or Walter Reed reports about his condition and the specific alleged 'negative test' by Pence. The sleazy criminal Cabal that tRUMP has been Dear Leader of absolutely cannot let Nancy Pelosi anywhere near being even considered for being sworn in, because she has already publicly voiced concerns about everything leading back to Russia with tRUMP.

Meanwhile, Bill Barr refuses to quarantine after being exposed by multiple positive testing people.

17. It's a discussion board

To discuss our dishonest President.

Conservatives would never admit that he's scamming everyone on everything else.

I'm not so sure why this would be impossible for him.
