The Con Game

Trump is “doing very well,” White House physician Dr. Sean P. Conley said Saturday. Then nearly simultaneously, Mark Meadows, the White House chief of staff said, “The president’s vitals over the last 24 hours were very concerning, and the next 48 hours will be critical in terms of his care.” In one report today Trump’s fever is gone, in another report he was given Dexamethasone, which is normally given to those with severe cases.

Which is it? Actually it’s both, and for very good reason — that’s how the con is played.

The election is a month away. So whatever the White House says today is only meant to lay the details for the storyline they will be spinning on election day. Reporting now that the President is very ill makes his base worry, so later, after his big recovery, they will be motivated to go to the polls to place their vote. Twice if possible!

Having a storyline that Trump is battling the virus with ease is important for when he emerges cured just in time for Election Day. Trump will say how the Democrats and the media over reacted on the severity of the virus, and it isn’t that bad. “It was like getting a cold,” he will say, “Not even a bad cold.”

In reality, the symptoms of Coronavirus are quite unpleasant, and for some, fatal. It’s nearly ten times more fatal than the flu. Not for the young and healthy, however. The older and at risk community, like an overweight man in his mid-70’s, has a much higher fatality rate, but still relative low at five to ten percent. So if Trump indeed does have COVID-19 and it’s not a hoax, he should survive just in time for Election Day. Just like he planned.
