A triumphant Hollywood return. They weren’t going to let this go to waste. And they shouldn’t. I just hope he’ll be okay where he is now. He probably should still be in the hospital.
But people are who they are. It’s not like President Trump to remain in a sickbed any longer than he feels he has to. And whether it is the wisest thing to do medically or not, it also says something about who he is.
I do not think Joe Biden’s super-careful Covid approach, rarely ventruing outside of Delaware — or even his basement — beyond neighboring Pennsylvania, is going to play well in the end with Americans.
The cautions experts and pundits make about safety make medical sense. But those who repeat them endlessly don’t necessarily feel the loneliness and economic desolation that also causes untold damage. And Americans are not about hiding, even if I also think some of them should be more careful and Trump should not tell people they shouldn’t fear this virus.
