That which did not kill Trump made him stronger


Covid 19 was having a grand time, killing thousands of people and wrecking the world economy. Then it took on Donald John Trump. 

As is always the case, Democrats chortled and cheered when the president tested positive. It was the Wisconsin primary again. It was the Billy Bush tape again. It was Russian Collusion again. It was the impeachment again. It was 14.7% unemployment again.

My reaction was succinct, "So covid 19 has decided to take on the man himself, President Donald John Trump. Big mistake. Covid 19 will just make him stronger."

This has come to pass.

After a weekend at Walter Reed hospital and a week stuck in the White House, Donald Trump hit the campaign trail again on Monday. The president visited Sanford, Florida, where thousands of supporters waited for him. It was a rock 'em, sock 'em rally.

Jack Posobiec tweeted, "The media all said Trump was dying and now he is up on stage in Florida dunking on them and laughing in their faces. He ended by shaking his booty at the press riser."

Ann Althouse posted, "He says he’s immune to covid now so he wants to walk into the audience and KISS everyone — including the beautiful women."

A guy named Cuandoman tweeted, "Trump rises from covid like a dazed WrestleMania combatant. He proceeds to cut a Machoman promo on Biden for the remaining weeks of the election, the likes of which politics has never seen." President Trump is healthy as a horse despite the virus. And he is immune to it now.

The press is aghast. Reason magazine argued, "After President Donald Trump was diagnosed with covid 19, he was prescribed powerful steroids. Among other things, this has raised important questions about giving presidents unilateral control over nuclear weapons.

"While Congress or military leaders are involved in any other decision to use of military force, the president can legally order a nuclear strike on his own. 'Congress doesn't have any role in this at the moment,' says Alex Wellerstein, a historian of science at the Stevens Institute of Technology. 'They're not expected to be consulted.'

"Unitary presidential control of nuclear weapons dates from the immediate aftermath of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki bombings, and the practice has been cemented over time. This is partly a product of the general shift toward a stronger executive, and partly just an issue of timing: If the missiles are coming, you can't call up Congress."

Once again, the useless press manufactures a crisis where there is none.

Donald Trump, who wants to rid the world of nuclear arms, is not going to blow up the world any more than he is going to lock himself down in a basement.

Glenn Reynolds nuked Reason's foolishness, writing, "Well, Kennedy was on a witch’s brew of drugs during the Cuban Missile Crisis, as we’ve known for years, and that didn’t lead to any calls for change. 'By the time he was president, he was on ten, 12 medications a day. He was on antispasmodics for his bowel, paregoric, lamodal transatine [ph], he was on muscle relaxants, Phenobarbital, Librium, Meprobomate, he was on pain medications, Codeine, Demerol, Methadone, he was on oral cortisone; he was on injected cortisone, he was on testosterone, he was on Nembutal for sleep. And on top of that he was getting injected sometimes six times a day, six places on his back, by the White House physician, with Novocain, Procaine, just to enable him to face the day.'"

As I recall (and I was only 9 at the time) President Kennedy cut a deal that avoided World War 3 and kept nukes out of Cuba.

So what does beating covid 19 mean?


 

Gallup found a wide gap between Democrats and Republicans on the virus.

80% of Democrat women and 77% of their men worry about getting covid 19.

Only 29% of Republican women and 20% of their men do.

That 50-point gap explains why covid 19 made President Trump stronger.

Democrats are all worried about it. They are into social distancing and masks.

Most Republicans shrug it off.

Democrats thought covid 19 owned President Trump, but he now owns covid 19 because it did not kill him. He is not sitting at home sweating it out. He is the rock star on tour again. No gaffes, no masks, no social distancing.

Trump supporters see the lockdowns as too harsh (they are) and partisan (that too).

President Trump's quick recovery confirms that Trump supporters were right all along. Once again, we are happy.

And once again, the Wile E. Coyote press and Democrats are unhappy.

  2. According to the CDC, people who always wore masks caught the Newsom Nausea the most, and most people caught it from a family member.

    Whole thing's a crock.

  5. Trump has beaten the FBI, DOJ, CIA, legacy media, impeachment and now COVID. Why would anyone consider it a possibility that he won’t beat the senile, frail Joe Biden???

  6. I have suspected that PDJT discovered early on (mid-March or so) that he'd been hornswoggled about the whole pandemic panic, and that he's been trying ever since to manage a way out of that mess.
    The virus is real, China unleashed it deliberately and spread it globally. But now that we know how to treat it, and who is truly at risk from it, it is past time to move beyond the media driven panic porn. I look for the issue to vanish about Nov. 4th.

    1. American medicine has devised a whole bunch of treatments that make the virus not nearly as scary. The president was all better in 4 days. Reminds me of getting the flu 2 years ago. I went to doc-in-a-box and got prescribed Tamiflu. All better in 4 days.

      The Chinese flu is NOT DEADLY!

  8. Re Kennedy and Cuba,

    Kennedy played a very high risk game for nothing more than to show he was a macho man.

    We had Jupiter(?) missiles with nukes in Turkey aimed at Russia. We had plans to begin taking them out by the end of the year as Minuteman missiles located in the US came on line.

    The Russians did not know this. They had been demanding for some time that we remove them.

    Finally Kruschev said, in effect, if you don't remove your missiles from our back doorstep, we'll put some on yours, in Cuba.

    All this drama could have been avoided had we simply told the Russians "We are working on getting the Jupiters out, give us another 6 months."

    This is what we eventually agreed to in secret negotiations.

    We could have avoided all the drama and risk but St Jack and especially St Bobby the Lesser wanted to appear macho. So they brought us to the brink of nuclear war.

    St Jack for all his claims of "Vigah!" was probably in worse shape than Biden is today. Mentally, perhaps almost as bad though in different ways due to the drugs.

    All carefully hidden by the press. They still present the Cuban Missile Crisis as a "win".

    1. John, not to come off as defending modern-day Democrats in any form, but I think this analysis of a 60-years dead one is significantly off.

      Had we said "give us six-months, the Soviets would have heartily agreed... and gone on finalizing the Missile presence in Cuba. After which they would say "Waddya gonna do about it now?" And thus scored a titanic strategic AND geopolitical victory.

      I can't speak directly to the process by which US missiles went to Turkey, but I do not think there was any secret about it at any time. With Cuba, the entire thing was done in total darkness in the hopes that they would be up and running by the time the US got wind of it. Thus, that made it incredibly destabilizing, and had to be treated as such.

      In geopolitics, 50% of any "victory" seems to be spin alone, so that is certainly a premise for debate. But I think to say that JFK and the US defense establishment acted as they did to be "macho", as if there were any other option than direct threat of force to turn back what the Soviets did (and I always rather compared the act to Hitler's occupation of the Rhineland, which was reacted to much as you advocate. How'd that work out?) is absurd.

  10. Note the side effects of remdesivir do not include any feelings one would associate with heroin or any such drugs that give a feeling of euphoria. So where is Pelosi coming from? I looks like she has the mental problem. And we have another attempt to downplay medical innovations. First hydroxychloroquine, then the Covid-19 vaccines and now the Covid-19 medications. Heartless individuals who would scare people away from medical innovations just to make Trump look bad. Disgusting.After this crap, I don't know if I can ever vote for another Democrat. Regardless of what they say, once elected they will follow the talking points regardless of the consequences for our country. Party before country is their thought process!
