Keep that in mind…
Dr. Conley: "I didn't want to give any information that might steer the course of illness in another direction and in doing so it came off that we were trying to hide something, which wasn't necessarily true."
My Q: How would providing facts steer the course of Trump's illness?

The big lede from Sean Conley is that Trump is now on dexamethasone

Sanjay Gupta says doctors at Walter Reed are throwing "the kitchen sink" at Trump, feeding him 3 different "serious" medications, one of which is experimental in nature. He suggests this is far more serious than what Conley is letting on.

So Trump is pissed at Mark Meadows for revealing a grain of truth.
Soon he will send out a group of actors, dressed up as doctors, to brief the world that he is recovering magnificently and ran 5 miles this morning.

To help Donald Trump get the full COVID-19 experience, let’s make sure he loses his job and is evicted from his home next month.

Sources: Trump had heart palpitations on Friday, a possible negative side effect of Regeneron antibody treatment. His fever reached 103. And a G7 ally wonders if he’ll appoint Ivanka president instead of Pence. My latest:

And still, the idiots persist:
I mean, if republicans want to go full-on super-insecure performative masculinity and stop wearing seat belts or motorcycle helmets and smoking more and licking door handles and stuff so as not to be all girly, I can see the upsides for the country in the long run. https://t.co/6ew9i1a35e

Point to be made:
We're paying a lot of attention to Trump's case, but the US just recorded the most daily COVID-19 infections in nearly 2 monthshttps://t.co/8YKUt3M5lM
