If imPotus tested positive, would they tell us? It’s not like there aren’t partly used pots of bronzer and make-up wipes available for testing every day.

Follow up to Dr. Fauci - If Trump came up to you to give you a hug do you: 1) give him a big comforting hug because the President is going through a lot; 2) give him a hug and a kiss to show that this is all a big hoax and everyone should just chill; 3) kick him in the chops ; 4) run like hell in the other direction.

Trump seems like a great candidate as a “Vector”!

Alarming…as Fauci just testified that testing is failing, OH estimates 100,000 infected!

Update:

Coronavirus can survive in the air for hours in addition to fomite transmission!

Trump doesn’t need to be tested - he has plenty of Alex Jones’ Coronavirus-B-Gone in the Oval Office.

If he was lethal, he would not have second thoughts of passing it on to anyone else.
I’d say get him onto a schooner, have him walk a plank and drop to the bottom of the ocean (I’m sure he can’t swim) Problem solved.

Please don’t test him! Just show him pictures of himself with people he’s never met who have tested positive.

I say skip the test and go right for the rabies shots. But make sure it’s the shots from back in the 1960’s, when one got 21 shots - one a day for 21 days - a big ass needle right in the gut.

Or just, you know, stick him with needles. I’m good with just sticking him with needles at this point…

Wow, such luxury. A floating pire might be more appropriate.

But make sure that they are big ass needles!
