Do you mean faking problems due to the mask or does he seem ill? (pneumonia)

No, he doesn't look like he's faking at all. He's obviously having trouble breathing.

Here's the link:

I like it (the caption, that is).

I didn't realize it at the time, but he went back outside shortly thereafter to re-film his made-for-tv moment---all the while exposing photographers and staffers (what's left of them) to Covid. There really is no depth to which he cannot sink.

One can only hope he suffers a relapse.

Great caption, Lynx.

Agreed bpatters. Something didn't look right with him but I couldn't put my finger on it. He does look like he's having problems breathing and sometimes it looks like he's having trouble staying standing. He doesn't look good.

So is this Mussolini or Evita?

Have to link, even this part is before her last speech when she was dying of cancer. I love the song.

That clip was most telling, Bookfan. The best example of what bpatters was referring to.

I saw comment after comment to this tweet from doctors & nurses referring to the same thing & noting he's def not out of the woods.

He went to the Oval Office today----shedding virus all the while. How is that not reckless endangerment?

I follow Dr. Fauci on Instagram and he's been commenting about how this could have been prevented. My comment was that we know about a lot of physical conditions that make us more vulnerable to get COVID, but the biggest vulnerability seems to be stubborness and arrogance.

I don't know who the singer is here. Patti LuPone originated the role on Broadway. Speaking of whom:

Wow, Patti Lupone! They make a great combo!

I added a youtube direct link in your post to Covita, Bookfan! Love them both!

Will go read your article next, Sef.

And a senator decided that he was OK to attend the hearings, despite being positive for COVID 10 days ago. :(

Arrogance & willful ignorance. Or just following the pres. lead.

Interesting read:

I went out today (no mask) to take a bag of recycling we'd forgotten. They'd already been by & were coming back up the street & stopped. A guy came over & took the bag from me, no mask. How much risk?

Outside, brief contact, I'd say low risk. How much conversation? Less than 15 minutes?

"I'll get it (the bag)." <5 sec Very low load, I guess. Thanks Sef; I can quickly get overcome by anxiety.
