Was Donald Trump sick at the debate on Tuesday? Is that why he was so out of control and out of sorts? Is that why he didn’t take a COVID test before the debate? Did he suspect it? Did his team know it?
And if it wasn’t Tuesday, but Wednesday, hours after the debate, is that when he started receiving treatment?
Today’s press conference at Walter Reed Army Hospital went spectacularly wrong when doctors started making pronouncements of 48 and 72 hours, not understanding how many days ago that was, or did they? Before the press conference was over, there was, as Vanity Fair likes to say, pandemonium.
On top of that, did they lie about Trump’s actual present condition? As soon as the press conference was over, reports surfaced that Trump was a good deal more ill than revealed.
And morbidly obese Chris Christie is COVID positive, because he was at the SCOTUS announcement last Saturday. One by one, everyone who was there has gotten sick.
To paraphrase the late great Jimmy Breslin, this is the Gang That Couldn’t Shoot Straight.
