Melanoma needs a new PR team

Think about First Ladies past, from Mamie Eisenhower to Pat Nixon to Michelle Obama. Do you believe that any of those women would let their husbands be in the hospital alone--even if it's for "only a few days"--especially if she had the same illness and would not catch anything from him?

It's not like Trump is lying there in a ward, with rows of beds separated only by curtains; he's in a goddam suite, and I would bet the farm that there is at least one other bedroom in that suite.

She hasn't even visited him. Her "people" say that that's out of concern for the health of all the staff who would be exposed to her own COVID. So she's staying in the WH without any staff to take care of her?

She doesn't want to leave her young son alone? A. If it's "only a few days," he would probably enjoy some time off from mom, and B. The boy is fine, old enough to look after himself, with lots of people to take care of him, vs. her old-man husband who has a serious disease and is alone in the hospital. Give me a break.

He is an elderly man with a serious illness, alone in the hospital. When my father was in the hospital for cancer surgery, my mother brought a pillow from home and slept in the recliner next to his bed. Can you seriously believe Nancy Reagan would allow Ronnie to be there, sick, without someone to go tell the nurse to bring some fresh water, or to plump his pillow, or to read to him?

It wouldn't even have to be a genuine expression of love and concern. If it only gave the impression that she was a sentient human being, it would be a win, for her and for him.

3. There's a First Lady Suite there

And she could use treatment or at least observation too.

It makes no sense to me.

6. She's supposed to be in quarantine- She would indeed be putting staff at risk.

More bad optics if she did visit him. Not following the guidelines.

7. She should no more be visiting him

that Trump should have been taking a joy ride.

Not only is he infected, she is as well. Any movement exposes people because of the close contact required to move from one place to another. Further - you are aware of how many people died from COVID alone, with only a hurse holding facetime or zoom near the face of the patient as they died, since visits were prohibited - generally even when both individuals had the disease.

9. I wouldn't force anyone to be around Trump,

sick or not. It's not as if there's any human emotion involved with either or them, so he to each their own.

11. My Pillow

My bet is that she's been kept at a distance since being overheard asking the My Pillow guy how hard it is to breathe through their pillows.

13. Who really gives shit . And NO , it would have all been phony. I don't get the need some people have

for these two idiots to show they love each other or some other shit.

They are both assholes and opportunists concerned with their own profits and no show they put on will convince me otherwise.

18. It's all about image for tRump. He doesn't want to be seen as dependent on anyone.....

and especially not a female.

That's also why it's unlikely we'll see photos of him in a hospital bed because it would damage his image by making him look weak and dependent.
