Having read his tweet about himself and @FLOTUS I wondered whether when in the throws of passion he refers to her as Melania or @FLOTUS

His Covid infection has come at a lucky time ; he'll perhaps win a sympathy vote.
I don't think he will win enough sympathy vote to win him the Presidency.

Everybody seems to think he's only pretending to have the virus. I doubt it.

In any case I think he's at the end od his role as President.

President Trump has been taken to hospital
https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/pol ... 894256002/
President Donald Trump was headed to the hospital Friday after he and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19, raising fresh questions about the president's health.

Trump, 74, was going to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, in what aides said was a precautionary move. Officials said they expected him to be there for a few days.
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said the president "remains in good spirits, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day."

"Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady," she added.

I'm certain that the First Couple are using Coronavirus as a vote winner. Trump's trying to prove himself as a man of the people

How on earth is the election even close?

If Trump gets back in, the democrats need to take a good long look at themselves.

According to the news bulletins here it is not close.

Trump says he's won but the figures don't support that view.

It could end up in court.

In much the same way that Labour need to look at themselves

The latest from ABC News
https://www.abc.net.au/news/2020-11-05/ ... n/12849596
Donald Trump held a late press conference where he falsely claimed he won the election, declared it a "major fraud", and said he would ask the Supreme Court to stop any more votes being counted.
Earlier, Joe Biden told supporters the Democrats were "on track" to win.

So things are in a bit of a confusing state.

It's going to be a long time before we know for certain.
Once all votes (in person, early and absentee) have been counted, the governors of each state certify the results and list their electors.

All of the electoral college electors from each state formally cast their votes on December 14.

Congress then meets on January 6 for a formal count of the electoral votes, before certifying the winner.

We have had wall to wall coverage on the BBC on ITV and Sky News, I even turned over to Sky Sports News only for them to be interviewing some American a Sports stars asking them their opinions, I gave up and went for a walk. We do not get this two horse race mass coverage for elections in any other country, apart maybe our own. DILLIGAF

Bye bye Donald. I won’t be sad to see you go and I fear you will linger like a bad smell for many weeks to come.
He’s not all bad, a good article in The Times today ( I only read it because it’s free if you spend a tenner in Waitrose and The Guardian is far to earnest) about how he’s stood up against China, the WHO and Russia. I don’t personally agree with the way he’s done a lot of it it but nobody else is going to do it.

What is Waitrose, is it something like Aldi or Lidl

Something to do with Peterborough United apparently.

Tesco introduce ban on certain shoppers entering stores.
Posh, upmarket retailer Waitrose has matched their moves.
Maybe they won't let Trump shop there either.
