Good weekend Widdershins

We interrupt your normal musical weekend for breaking news

As “they” say, the chickens have come home to roost.  Trump and Melanie were diagnosed with the rona.  The announcement came at around 1:00 this morning and by the late afternoon apparently symptoms had progressed to the point that he was medivacked on Marine 1 to Bethesda Military hospital this afternoon.  It appears at this time that Hope Hicks was the “superspreader”.  The number of people who have tested positively has grown exponentially which makes sense in a White House that frowned on wearing masks.

Among the people who have tested positive positive:

  • President Donald Trump
  • First lady Melania Trump
  • White House Communications Director Hope Hicks
  • Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel
  • Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah
  • Three White House reporters
  • One White House staffer
  • The Rev. John Jenkins, president of Notre Dame University (Jenkins was at the White House Saturday, when Trump introduced Judge Amy Coney Barrett as his Supreme Court nominee. Barrett was a law professor at Notre Dame for 15 years before Trump nominated her to the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 7th Circuit.)

 

Other tidbits:

  • Pence and “mother” tested negatively (for now?) He’s been jumping up and down shouting “I’m ready, I’m ready” but so far Trump has not turned over the keys to the kingdom, at least not yet.
  • Supposedly Trump was “spooked” when he got the rona diagnosis.
  • There has not been a meeting with the Gang of Eight from Congress to update them on the situation although I believe that would be a normal procedure.
  • Trump received a “full dose” of an experimental antibody cocktail under “compassionate use” criteria.

In the good news category, Joe and Jill Biden tested negatively for the virus, and I am very happy to hear that.

Take the conversation wherever you wish but including gossip is good and cheap gossip is even better.

Infamous open thread.
