Donald Trump announced this morning that he and his wife Melania tested positive for coronavirus. Most people won't want to acknowledge it, but I think Julian Baggini has called the implications bang for rights below. If however I say this to anyone myself they will accuse me of being a closet Trump booster.
More broadly I think the Open Yale Course Epidemics in Western Society Since 1600 needs to be on my to-do list. There's a YouTube playlist and a book.
If Trump stays well, it'll be "See, I was right to think this was no big deal and I am SUPER healthy."— Julian Baggini (@JulianBaggini) October 2, 2020
If he gets sick, he'll get sympathy and no Democrat will be able to say "We told you this was serious" without looking cruel and opportunistic.
I fear this is good for him.
