a “bored” Typhoid Trump promenades, as Biden's net favorability improves to a steady polling lead

4 min read

Trump still has it and is contagious. He did his contagion parade outside the hospital to wave to supporters because he was “bored” but wanted to expose his Secret Service detail to COVID-19.

Trump's iconic campaign rallies are canceled, depriving him of some of his best chances to recruit new supporters and excite his old ones, while placing a brighter spotlight on his history of rarely wearing masks and downplaying the severity of the virus.

Although he has an advantage among voters over Biden in who would best handle the economy, surveys indicate that the country trusts Biden president by wide margins on managing the coronavirus and the health care system. The president's infection adds new scrutiny to his management of the virus, which has been his political Achilles' heel.

Trump told advisers on Sunday that he was getting bored being in the hospital and was tiring of watching coverage of his hospitalization. The ride past supporters was so impromptu that officials in charge of assembling the White House press pool were not even told.

The decision by Trump, who announced on Friday that he’d tested positive for the coronavirus, to defy public health guidelines and leave quarantine to greet his supporters confounded medical experts. Several agents from the Secret Service, which has already suffered from coronavirus outbreaks in recent weeks while protecting Trump, were also in the SUV with the president.
