Quick Thoughts on Short-Term Effects of Trump Catching COVID-19

As readers know, 2020 has been a most unusual year full of all sorts of surprises. Who could have foreseen the decision by establishment Democrats to close ranks behind a frail old man with senile dementia to run against the orange idiot? Of course, not all events are unexpected even if many of their consequences might be hard to foresee. Trump catching COVID-19 is an excellent example of something which was totally predictable but whose consequences are much harder to predict. I had expected him to catch it months ago, especially given his unwillingness to hide in the basement like Dementia Joe. So it was not surprising when Trump announced yesterday that he had tested positive for COVID-19. With that on mind, let us talk about potential consequences.

1] As many of you have heard, Trump has received an infusion (8g) of two monoclonal antibiotics (REGN-COV2) manufactured by Regeneron. While this drug is currently in clinical trials, there is enough evidence that it causes a significant reduction of virus levels in body fluids. Since Trump received this drug before progressing onto the later and more serious inflammatory symptoms, it will very likely benefit him. He is also receiving a 5 day course of Remdesivir (200mg on day 1 and 100 mg on day2-5). Once again, since he received it before progressing onto inflammatory symptoms, it will benefit him far more than those who receive it after being quite ill for a number of days. While this might not cheer up MikeCA, Trump is very likely to survive this illness and be back in the White House sometime next week- ready to berate Dementia Joe again.

2] While Joe Biden had a negative COVID-19 test yesterday, this is likely to change over next few days since there is usually a 3-6 day period between infection and producing enough viruses to be detected by PCR-based tests. Since it is almost certain that Trump was in asymptomatic, but potentially infectious, stage when he shared the stage with Biden at the first debate. It does not help that more than a few of Trump’s entourage at that debate were also infectious. Did I also mention that normal cloth masks cannot stop COVID-19. Unlike Trump whose is in otherwise OK health for a 74-year old man, Biden is a very frail 78-year old in early stages of senile dementia. To make a long story short, if Biden gets COVID-19 his prognosis will be far worse than Trump. Biden might end up where many liberals and progressives are praying for Trump to end up.

3] While many talking-heads on corporate news outlet and twitter pundits are trying to demean Trump by spreading rumors and demanding an ever increasing amount of personal information about his medical status, this strategy is likely to backfire since he is now increasingly an object of sympathy as he now has something in common with an increasing number of people in this country. Many still remember how all these MSM cocksuckers kept on hyping “scandal” after “scandal” for the past four years. It is like the boy who cried wolf.. after enough false calls, the person making them loses credibility. Long story short, it is not going to hurt his poll numbers and will likely increase them as well as embolden his more determined (and armed) supporters. And as mentioned above, Biden isn’t out of the COVID-19 woods yet.

4] The case for Trump being an incompetent moron who does not deserve re-election could have been far stronger IF Democrats had presented a significantly better economic vision of future, demonstrated ability to fulfill at least some of their previous promises and selected a presidential candidate who did not have senile dementia. Instead these paid losers have decided to focus on bullshit which only appeals to white upper-middle class types such as “respectability”, bullshit about the “green new deal”, gobblygook on “extending” Obamacare, talk about banning semi-automatic guns and other “woke” cultural bullshit that nobody who does not live in certain coastal zipcodes cares about. People such as MikeCA are partisan democrats because it is about social class rather than actual belief in anything he pretends to care about.

5] Let me now repeat something which needs to repeated as long as people such as MikeCA pretend to be appalled by Trump. The orange buffoon, you see, is the result of everything which has been going wrong in this country for past four decades.. and let us not pretend that this decision was not bipartisan. Trump, or someone similar to him, was as inevitable in our era as Hitler in post-1930 Germany or Mussolini in post-WW1 Italy. People in this country have stopped believing that politicians are anything but greedy, cynical, corrupt assholes who are increasingly disconnected from the people who vote them into power. Trying to portray Trump as “uniquely bad” because he does brazenly what other politicians do more surreptitiously is not a recipe for defeating Trump. Then again.. perhaps, Democrats don’t want to defeat Trump, since they are fake opposition paid by same people as Republicans.

In summary, based on everything we know to date, Trump is very unlikely to die or even suffer prolonged hospitalization due to COVID-19. The same cannot be said about Biden, especially in next few days. The attempts by MSM outlets and Twitter pundits to defame and enjoy Trump getting sick with COVID-19 is likely to backfire on them and Democrats.

    “Remdesivir … will benefit him”
    Are there any studies that show Remdesavir to influence outcome or diminish viral load?
    All I see are loads of adverse side-effects, several studies showing no benefits, no study showing any effect on outcomes, and one study showing something that was not the object of the study and has not been confirmed by theory or more testing, viz., that it shortened the hospital stay from 15 to 11 days for a selection of patients that did not have mild, moderate, or severe symptoms, but severe enough to require oxygen, but not invasive. Pretty weak recommendation, wouldn’t you say.

    Most human trials of Remdesivir have been in critically ill patients who have had COVID-19 for at least 7 days. Since most viral replication in acute viral diseases occurs in early phases of illness, giving drugs that stop viral replication after most of the process has already occurred won’t have much effect on prognosis. In Trump’s case, he got the drug before maximal replication occurred.. so it is likely to benefit him far more than critically ill patients.

      True. But the same logic applies to any anti-viral, but seems to be less clear to the people designing studies. I haven’t seen any RCT’s that show effective inhibition of viral replication in early disease onset for Remdesavir yet, only in vitro and ex vivo. Better yet, perhaps somebody could compare the 1. effectiveness against 2. nothing, 3. Ivermectin and 4. HCQ+Zinc in a well-designed study where each is applied on out-patient basis to high risk patients at the first sign of a symptom, with good monitoring of estimated date of infection and disease progress, along with continual blood panels for confounding variables. After all, they’re spending billions and billions anyways. Why leave it to Bangladeshi? …

    The race is between Orange Buffoon (who at least started no wars, unlike every president since Carter) and President Harris (who will pack the Senate and the Court) who will enable the oligarchs and the warmonger establishment (otherwise the oligarchs wouldn’t be supporting her, marking the demise of duopoly politics to blatant one-party rule.

    I don’t get all talk about Biden. He is a variable declaration, let x be ….

    so, uh, AD, with your micropen, er, microbiology degree…

    what would you say is the chance of catching covid at an event like this???

    https://www.eventbrite.com/e/underground-sex-club-party-tickets-122519634525?aff=erellivmlt

    and how is it even happening with a lockdown nazi like useless cuomo the homo? Or did I answer my own question and its happening because cuomo wants to get sum?

    Since the majority of people participating in such events are in otherwise good health and under 50, the risk is negligible.

    uh, I dunno about that…

    Trump da Chump is a fat ass…

    Bidet, er, Biden is a horrible man who may not be mentally sound (but even you, you filthy cuck alluded to Trumpy Chumpy’s likeliness of being on Adderal and other drugs/not all there mentally.)

    Your weird worship of Trumpypooops makes you seem like some alt-lite pickler smoocher.

    I will start writing comments of significant substance when you start being intellectually honest…

    ie “don’t expect comments of significant substance anytime soon….”

    I don’t let my dislike for something or somebody color my views.

    You really believe Trump got the convid flu and it’s not just another fake theater play for the public?

    Has anyone noticed how disproportionately so many politicians and celebrities worldwide have claimed they got the convid, yet most of us can’t find even one person from our local community who got sick of this scam flu?

    It is obvious that Trump’s doctors are not telling the public the full truth. His treatment is aggressive which probably means his infection was fairly serious. The doctors say they are also giving him dexamethasone, which is steroid used to treat many kinds of Inflammation and other diseases. It is usually only given to Covid-19 patients when the infection in their lungs. Given this treatment and the refusal of doctors to discuss his lung scans, it is clear the Covid-19 has gone to his lungs.

    Dexamethasone can also have some serious side effects. Not being able to sleep is a common side effect. Euphoria and Vertigo are also common side effects. Given the tweets Trump has been sending out today you have to wonder how badly dexamethasone and other treatments have effected Trump’s mental state.

      and yet you let plaque doctor post gay pictures…

      I guess it is because you found his arousing and Gavin Gross….

      Well.. I will also do that for such pictures posted under the handle of ‘plaque doctor’.. FYI, I can see who is using which IP address.

      “Well.. I will also do that for such pictures posted under the handle of ‘plaque doctor’.. FYI, I can see who is using which IP address.”

      Great way to miss the point Einstein. There was a WN posting as Plaque Doctor years back. He continued posting under different handles and is likely the one who posted the gay pr0n images (October 5, 2020 at 12:17 am) you seem to be happy with having on your site. He hasn’t used Plague Doctor since you yelled at him regarding Steve Sailer HBD stuff but he “reliably” posts after a few comments trashing WN appear in succession. You likely *know* this but for whatever reason ignore it. And for someone who is supposedly so intelligent at spotting patterns and putting together *disperate* information why haven’t you connected the dots that whenever there are a few posts disparaging WN or even mocking plaquey, he consistently posts (regardless of an easily spoonable IP.)

      Either it is narcissism on your part and you are far less intelligent than you claim or it is willful intellectual dishonesty Pick whichever one suits your ego better….

      I won’t be surprised if this comment goes down the memory hole 1984 style…

      OK, will remove his crap from now onward.

    “His treatment is aggressive which probably means his infection was fairly serious.”

    Or it could be they are throwing everything at it so it doesn’t get serious…

    It’s comical seeing how often overeducated himbo’s such as you and advipoops are wrong…
