I’m genuinely surprised that Sleepy Joe made it to V-Day without being infected with coronavirus. Not because he wasn’t taking proper precautions but because American politics is a bad TV drama now and the conventions of the medium all but require the two presidential candidates to have each had a brush with death from COVID at some point.
In fact, after Trump announced his diagnosis in October, I would have bet a decent amount of money that Biden would soon announce his own positive test — and that suspicions would center on Trump himself as the person who probably infected him at their first debate.
Thank god this failing country didn’t have to live through an episode of “your elderly candidate put our elderly candidate in the hospital with a deadly disease!” It’s the only break America got this year. Watch, then read on.
