True. Washington D.C. was not being bombed like London was. Roosevelt was also a chain-smoker.

I saw a comment on 45's "less testing equals fewer cases" nonsense:
"So, if Herman Cain hadn't gotten tested he would still be alive?"

The initial Statement from Trump's doctor said (my emphasis)
Quote:
This evening I received confirmation that both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.
A little while ago, Special Reports came on, saying the president is being transferred to Walter Reed Medical Center. Video of him getting on Marine One showed him walking apparently normally.

Whether the change in plans was prompted by medical developments or campaign strategy is more than I can say.

Oh Jeez Louise, People! This is just another segment of his regular physical. It will probably reveal that he is even more superbly healthy, robust, energetic, and much taller and NOT AT ALL EVEN A LITTLE BIT over the ideal weight for someone with his robust, athletic build.

Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

That's funny, I didn't hear anything about the First Lady going to Walter Reed. Huh. I wonder...

"Dr. Conley? This is Melania. Listen, it's bad enough being cooped up in here with what feels like a nasty cold, but Donald is complaining, cursing and screaming NONSTOP, and I can't get any rest. Is there any way you can get him out of here?"

Trump gets experimental drug aimed at curbing severe illness
Quote:
The experimental antibody drug given to President Donald Trump has been called one of the most promising approaches to preventing serious illness from a COVID-19 infection.

Its maker, Regeneron Pharmaceuticals Inc., said the company agreed to supply a single dose, given through an IV, for Trump at the request of his physician under "compassionate use" provisions, when an experimental medicine is provided on a case-by-case emergency basis, while studies of it continue.
<snip>
Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, said late Friday that Trump had also been given the antiviral drug remdesivir at the military hospital. The Gilead Sciences drug has been shown to help some COVID-19 patients recover faster.

Earlier, Conley said Trump also was taking zinc, vitamin D, an antacid called famotidine, melatonin and aspirin. None of those have been proven to be effective against COVID-19.

Trump apparently is not receiving hydroxychloroquine, a drug he widely promoted that has been shown in many studies to be ineffective for preventing or treating COVID-19.

A spoonful of Chlorox helps the temperature go down,
The temperature down,
The temperature go down.

Just spoonful of Chlorox helps the temperature go down,
In a Presidential way.

I read this story ( only the headline is necessary, really ) that Merriam-Webster said that searches for the word "schadenfreude" went ballistic:

https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/...140542986.html

Also, note that this story was under Yahoo's "Entertainment" section.

Huh, that's interesting. It might indicate that a lot of people who aren't familiar with the word just saw it for the first time.

That was the word of the day for Friday.
Today's word of the day is "October Surprise"

It appears that the White House now has more people in hospital with CV19 than does New Zealand.
