So, it seems our superspreader-in-chief may have known he was sick well before the debate, as well as the fundraiser he went to just last night. Chris Wallace, who was just on Fox News talking to Bill Hemmer, pretty much revealed as much.
“The clinic had a rule, you wear the mask inside. That was stated clearly. If you look at the statement today, I’ll read a key line: ‘Individuals traveling with both candidates including the candidates themselves had been tested and tested negative by their respective campaigns.’ They weren’t tested by the clinic based on the statement Chris, and to me, that sounds like an honor system,” Bill Hemmer said.
Wallace goes on to reply that Trump and his entourage couldn’t be tested by the clinic because they didn’t arrive until late afternoon Tuesday, leaving no time for the test to be conducted.
“Well they couldn’t be tested by the clinic… The difference was that I arrived on Sunday and you arrived on Monday. They didn’t arrive until Tuesday afternoon. So for them to get tested, there wouldn’t have been enough time to have the test and then have the debate at 9:00 that night. They didn’t show up until 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 in the afternoon. Yeah, there was an honor system when it came to the people that came into the hall from the two campaigns,” Wallace explained.

There was, indeed, an honor system in place but we all know that Trump has no honor. So, if this is true he not only endangered Biden and his campaign, who went through the proper protocol, but every single person he came into contact with, even his own family. I hope no one is hurt from the President’s stupidity, not even himself, but his treatment of this virus has been a disgrace. His treatment of American lives has been a disgrace. I hope he gets well, so we can vote his ass out.
