Let's game this out

Assuming for the moment he actually does go back to the White House today...one of three things will happen.

Possibility #1 - he actually gets better. So be it. This was always going to be the statistical probability. Even old and unhealthy people have a good chance of survival. Then we can go on and talk about all of his other failings including the several hundred thousand that were not so lucky.

Possibility #2 - He takes a turn for the worse and needs to go back. The progress of this disease is not always linear so it is a definite possibility. The optics of this would be even worse than before.

Possibility #3 - He takes a turn for the worse and needs to go back but refuses to out of stupidity and concern for optics. This would put him at higher risk than necessary and could end up making him worse.

#1 has always been a probability. But he has increased the chances for #2 or #3 by being a terrible patient with awful motivations for everything he does.

1. #1 is the most likely we need to constantly hammer home the level of care he got.

Private army of doctors, separate suite, medevac by helicopter, two experimental drugs, steroids, supplemental oxygen, the fact that the WH has a built in medical center, etc.

Many Americans will suffer and die from COVID because they aren't the beneficiaries of socialized medicine like our tax dodging Commander In Chief is.

5. 99% of us can't go to hospital for mild cases

We are told to stay home and no medications given just take Vitamin D and Zinc, drink a lot of water.

So for him to say don't worry its nothing pisses me off more than I already was at him, for everyone in America that had to be in pain at home or not get help until they practically died or did...ugh!!!

2. He's watched too many action movies

where the hero pulls the IVs from his arm, rises from his death bed, ignoring his almost mortal wounds, and goes out to deal the death blow to the villain.

3. There is now a fully-equipped ICU in the White House

Everything was moved in there over the past couple of days. He will have access to equivalent care as what was available to him at Walter Reed, but without the immediate availability of advanced diagnostic and surgical facilities.
