After Sunday’s update from doctors at Walter Reed, I can only conclude:
It looks like 45 pulled off the great hoax by feigning positive tests to get the experimental drugs fast-tracked to meet his before election projections for a vaccine.
Will he pull off this fake news?
We will watch and report.

Things are happening so rapidly in the world of Presidential politics that it seems a couple of years passed last week. I will touch on three recent events:
First, the death of Ruth Bader Ginsburg left the Supreme Court’s delicate liberal-conservative balance in flux. This unexpected opening on the Supreme Court is like having a joker in a game of cards to suddenly pop up giving the holder more flexibility.
From 1868 to 1964, Georgia, the self-proclaimed peach state, voted Democratic in each Presidential election cycle. In 1968, Georgia broke with nearly a century of voting for Democratic Presidential candidates. That year, Georgia gave its ten electoral votes to American Independent Party candidate George C. Wallace. Then in 1972, Georgia sided with Republican Richard Nixon, before again giving the nod to a Democrat, native son, Jimmy Carter in 1976 and 1980.
In a recent national poll, former Vice President Joe Biden drops from atop the polls as the likely Democratic nominee, a front-runner no more.
Biden’s moderate approach to defeating impeached President Donald J. Trump displaced for the democratic socialist ideas of Senator Bernie Sanders and former New York Republican Mayor Mike Bloomberg. Former South Bend mayor Pete Buttigieg is waiting on the flank for Sanders and Bloomberg to falter.
I watched the debate from New Hampshire. Contrary to the television political pundits, I thought that Joe Biden had a great discussion about his views on the future of the country.
The future, after all, can not begin until Donald J. Trump is defeated. Biden made it clear that the goal of the 2020 campaign season is to defeat Trump.
It’s November 3, 2020, and yes, you read the headline on your social media feed right. Donald J. Trump did it again.
He won re-election for President. Just four years ago, he stunned the political world, winning the American Presidency over former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. She was perhaps the most qualified person and the first woman nominee of a major political party ever to seek the office of President.
Now that there are at least 24 announced candidates for the Democratic Party Nomination, its time to ask the question:
Have the Democrats lost their freaking minds?
The 2020 Democratic Primary is a virtual buffet, a smorgasbord of delectable candidates like goodies, each vying for the focused attention of the American electorate.
Before former Vice President Joe Biden pushed President Barack Obama into coming out in favor of same-sex marriage, this was an unthinkable question.
Biden’s 2011 support for Gay marriage may be more of an impediment to his chances of winning the Democratic Primary in 2020 than any of the other issues raised about his four decades in public life
Yesterday I read with amazement a tweet from a woman I admire for her spiritual affirmations. The tweet said, “I like Dick.” An explicit declaration of what she likes, right.
I did a double-take. Did my friend tweet what I think I read?
I was not surprised to learn that my friend might actually like Dick. But it stunned me to see that she admitted liking Dick in such a public space.
