Were I Biden and his camp I'd be real worried about right now.


Because Trump, being medically cleared and having had Covid, plus testing positive for antibodies, no longer has any reason to practice any sort of distancing or mask wearing. He can no longer give or get the virus.

This means he can walk through a crowd and shake hands.

He can give and receive hugs.

He can speak without a diaper on his face, at any distance, around anyone.

He is violating no public health directives anywhere by doing so since he is provably immune and has been so-proved.

Maybe immunity lasts for a long time and maybe it doesn't but in the context of the campaign all that matters is the next three weeks.

Politics is a blood sport folks. It always has been and always will be.

I believe that the "superspread" event at ACB's reception was intentional -- that it was effectively an attempted poisoning. It was aimed at Barrett, not Trump, but whoever did it didn't realize that ACB was already immune; both she and her husband had already had the virus. They didn't give a crap about the collateral damage; indeed, that was all designed to feed into the CNN screamfest about "masks" and make Trump look bad, which of course is bull**** with fecal transmission since it's coming out your ass, not your mouth or nose. In fact a mask makes it worse because wearing one greatly increases the odds you will touch your mouth or nose while adjusting it, and if you've contaminated your hands with the fecal material you just infected yourself.

Incidentally the stochastic way this bug behaves makes ordinary respiratory transmission on a casual basis extraordinarily unlikely. It's not impossible, and I'm sure it happens -- but I'm also very sure that's not the majority way this bug passes between victims. In fact I'd take a bet tomorrow that fewer than 10% of all transmissions are "casual respiratory" ones.

Stochastic behavior, which we keep seeing, is inconsistent with respiratory transmission by asymptomatic people. But it is very consistent with fecal spread and the correlation between nursing homes and construction sites, where feces is exposed on a regular basis (construction sites use porta-potties) and hand-washing is nearly impossible (no running water yet) along with ~40% of nursing home residents being incontinent is entirely consistent with what we've seen.

Simply put ordinary respiration from an asymptomatic person is not how it spreads. That's what the data tells us. Eight months into this the evidence is conclusive.

One small amount of feces from a highly-symptomatic victim mixed into food or beverage, or smeared on utensils or cups is another matter. That the cluster of cases, all same-generation with identical onset times and correlated but they were outdoors makes "droplet" transmission from an asymptomatic individual statistically impossible.

That they scored Trump instead was of course considered "all the good" -- especially considering he's overweight and older, so there was a decent chance, the crazies thought, that he'd at least get nasty sick and if he died that was good from their point of view too. Just look at the ghoulish tweets and comments by media people when Trump popped a positive test.

They should have listened to people like me; this bug is no big deal if you interdict it early. Which Trump did. And in less than a week he was clinically cured. Now he's clinically immune while Joe Biden is not, and Biden is even more medically-brittle than Trump.

In other words the Democrat side wound up suck-starting a shotgun and if you think Trump won't capitalize on this you're nuts. He most-certainly both will and should.

Good luck Joe.

You're going to get tripped, thrown down on the mat and your face pounded into it for the next three weeks.

Oh, and there's no referee to stop the fight before the 3rd of November either.

Pathetic Joe deserves to be stomped into the dirt.

Why do you think the fake news propaganda exists that Blue Pill Covid can be caught over and over? It's the gift that keeps on taking.

What is a casual respiratory transmission?

It's aerosol transmission which can happen with any respiratory virus but is generally rare.
