If Trump doesn’t become seriously ill from the coronavirus, look for him, his supporters, and right-wing propaganda media to play him up as Superman. Forget the 200,000+ who have died and tens of millions who survived but still have lingering complications. To his followers and enablers, Trump’s recovery would be proof that COVID-19 isn’t as big a threat as his opponents have made it seem.

It must be nice, after contracting coronavirus, to have a government health care plan that ensures you get taken care of by the best medical personnel in the country — which the taxpayers underwrite.

I’m remembering a conversation with a former friend several months ago, in which he was convinced the pandemic was a hoax cooked up by Democrats and would “go away right after the election.” I wonder if he still believes that this morning.
