Interesting that you mention foul play, because that's exactly what the lot of them would think if he passed. He, despite all odds, is such a godlike figure to them that to even think he was lying about his health would be glossed over in favor of a wild conspiracy theory that the democrats concocted the virus to steal the elec- wait, that one is already in circulation.

Donald Trump's "good genes image" could get a boost if...
Nope. As we speak, Donald Trump is being prepared to be transported from the front door of the White House via helicopter to Walter Reed Memorial Hospital. White House staff reported that he was "lethargic" this morning. White House doctors said that he has fever, chills, coughs and nasal congestion. He was giving an 8g dose of the experimental Regeneron anti-viral cocktail (not a vaccine), vitamins and an asprin.

Well, the "good genes" boost is definitely gone. We know for certain that they are doing everything they can to keep Trump appearing healthy, because if voters doubt his ability to lead then he stands no chance of winning. They would probably have hoped to keep his health under wraps, if he was sick but just about healthy enough to continue touring then he certainly would.

Fact is, his tweets have pretty much stopped. Just a month out from the election, he is not tweeting. That, alone, makes me think he's doing poorly.

Also, giving experimental and untested drugs to Presidents? That's... brave. They wouldn't do that if he was feeling fine, would they now?

Friday and Saturday, the White House and Ivanka Trump sent out photos showing the president "working" "very hard"

The photos show him in a suite working in a white dress shirt, and in another set wearing a suit jacket. The photo data shows they were taken 15 minutes apart. It shows mostly the same pile of blank manila envelopes, and apparently signing his name on blank sheets of paper.

Later in the day, a White House staff member confirmed they were concerned for his health when his oxygen suddenly dropped. Give my experience in taking care of people with respiratory issues, I am 100% certain he is on supplemental oxygen when he's not being photographed or seen in public.

Speaking of which, he broke isolation so that Secret Service members could drive him around the hospital grounds in a car and wave to fans. Secret Service has anonymously reported that they're upset that he's put their agent's lives at risk with his reckless behavior.

The Beast, as the car is known, is protected against chemical attacks. It should work both ways, in other words being locked in with Trump is highly contagious right?

Still, he did seem in better health in the later video posted. Those who get hid hard by Covid-19 do so about a week after falling sick, so the middle of this week will be the challenging part. If he is discharged today/tomorrow, that may still not mean the situation is over. If he is discharged, then brought back, that's bad optics. They'll probably keep him at Walter Reed at least until the weekend.
