Love him or hate him: it’s pretty obvious that President Trump has had little in common with most of us. That is until late yesterday when the white house confirmed that the president and first lady had joined a couple of million Americans diagnosed this year with the Coronavirus. The president says the diagnosis won’t impact his ability to fulfill his presidential duties but he has canceled a number of public appearances that had been planned including a rally in Florida tonight. The diagnosis would seem to place a planned second presidential candidates debate October 15 in some doubt. I am sure there are some folks out there who consider the diagnosis a bit of poetic justice for a president who’s been accused of down playing the severity of the virus at times and has run afoul of health experts for refusing to mask up at some events. Can you imagine having the job of doing contact tracing of the people the president and first lady have interacted with in the past few days? When I heard of the diagnosis I wondered if the president and his election opponent Joe Biden shook hands at any time when they met in Cleveland for Tuesday night’s debate. I have been assured that they did not. That’s a good thing! That’s the way I see it.
