Night time Owls, a themed open thread, seems at Day by day Kos seven days per week
At New York journal, Olivia Nuzzi writes—The Entire Presidency Is a Superspreading Event. Down in the polls, high on steroids, and clinging to good health while endangering everyone else’s:
[…] Within the hospital, Trump’s world shrank in a single day in a approach it hadn’t since he arrived in Washington from New York to be sworn into workplace practically 4 years in the past. Contagious and remoted from his household and closest aides, he was accompanied by Dan Scavino, the social-media director who had first been his caddie and had survived at his aspect longer than anybody who wasn’t blood, and Mark Meadows, his extremely emotional chief of workers, who slept in a room close by, and was attended to by a staff of camera-conscious medical doctors. On this sterilized confinement, he tried to distract himself from his sickness. He plotted his escape, deliberate public-relations stunts, watched TV, and took calls from associates, members of his workers, and Republican lawmakers. However he remained consumed by what the medical doctors informed him about his possibilities of survival. It wasn’t a certain factor.
9 months into the pandemic and one month away from Election Day, the president thought of for the primary time that the illness killing him within the polls, threatening his political future, would possibly simply kill him, too. On the telephone he remarked sarcastically, “This modification of surroundings has been nice.”
