The Calls Are Coming From Inside The House!

As the White House staff learns to live with it, Axios morning email thingie gives us the state of play from the ship of fools:

White House aides have advised President Trump to avoid the Oval Office while he’s still infected. But they’re making arrangements for him to work out of the Diplomatic Reception Room, and use it as a backdrop for future televised remarks, two White House officials tell Axios’ Alayna Treene.

  • Why it matters: The preparations show that far from bunkering down in the residence until he’s well, Trump is considering remaining active while he recovers from COVID.
  • Any Trump movement in the West Wing would create a series of risks for his staff.

We’re gonna interject a small correction here: “…a series of risks for his remaining staff.” Politico tells us the body count of people Lord Damp Nut has infected is 30, and probably still rising. Back to Axios:

Reflecting widespread dismay among administration officials, a White House source told Axios’ Alexi McCammond:

  • “It’s insane that he would return to the White House and jeopardize his staff’s health when we are still learning of new cases among senior staff. This place is a cesspool.”
  • “He was so concerned with preventing embarrassing stories that he exposed thousands of his own staff and supporters to a deadly virus. He has kept us in the dark, and now our spouses and kids have to pay the price. It’s just selfish.”

It’s rich that these political appointee staffers are whinging about selfishness now that it is their ass on the line. 

“The mood within the White House remains somber, with staff fearful they may have been exposed to the virus. As they confront a new reality — a worksite that once seemed like a bubble of safety is anything but — they also have been engaged in finger-pointing over conflicting reports released about the president’s health as well as a lack of information provided internally.”

“Many have learned about positive tests from media reports and several were exposed, without their knowledge, to people the White House already knew could be contagious.”

“Indeed, it took until late Sunday night, nearly three full days after Trump’s diagnosis, for the White House to send a staff-wide note in response. Even then, it did not acknowledge the outbreak.”

Back to Axios, who tells us about the non-political appointees,the civil servants and household staff now at risk. These are the fine people we should be worried about, the truly innocent victims:

Among those endangered by Trump’s approach:

  • “The White House residence staff members are largely Black and Latino, and often elderly, according to Kate Anderson Brower, who compiled a trove of interviews with former staffers for her book ”The Residence,'” the WashPost reports. There are about 90 full-time ushers, butlers, housekeepers, valets, florists, engineers and cooks.
  • For the Secret Service, a New Question: Who Will Protect Them From Trump?” says a N.Y. Times headline.
  • White House reporters are increasingly anxious and angry, Axios’ Sara Fischer reports. N.Y. Times White House correspondent Michael Shear, who tested positive, tells Axios: “My wife has now tested positive for COVID. The collateral damage is going to be pretty significant, I think.”

It’s pretty clear he’s gonna kill more people before he keels over, which cannot happen soon enough.

UPDATE 1: Unbelievable – NYTimes

“Mr. Trump was considering some kind of a nationwide televised address, two people familiar with the discussions said. But while there were no new reports of him needing oxygen, he was still sounding somewhat short of breath in conversations, another person said.”

    I feel such horror and sorrow for the residence staff. I wish they could all just quit and get the hell out of there, but they probably can’t do that easily, needing the work, feeling responsible and proud of their jobs. Damn to hell and below, that Fucking ShitHead. He needs to suffer bigly on a ventilator for weeks.

    I wish I knew Yiddish, the language with more maledicts than any other in the world.

    How is this supposed to work? Everyone who is in the same room with him has to go into isolation for 14 days, right? This whole thing is NUTS.

      Everyone who gets within 50 yards of the COVID-Shtarker will need to be fully suited-up in hazmat gear, or as medicos call it, PPE. And even then, disinfect themselves after un-suiting. What a waste of oxygen, space, thought, time, energy, cosmos this shit-head is.

    Lest we forget: the MSM had a collective freak out for weeks when Bill Clinton wanted to fire all the Reagan/Bush holdovers and hire his own staff for the White House Travel Office. The MSM belittled Jimmy Carter and deemed him ‘mean’ because he controlled the White House tennis court schedule. The MSM hounded LBJ with wild rumors and speculation over his health which he put an end to by simply lifting his shirt to show them his recent gall bladder surgery sutures.

    Contact tracing? Check. (Meaning, no, we’re not doing it, too much effort. But we can claim we’re making an effort, and are including at least one Sciency-type guy from the CDC, but not really, coz when you ask the CDC who that point person is, they look at you funny, and say, “Whu? Huh?”)
    Official Announcements? Check. (Meaning they’re NOT coming from any sciency-types at the CDC, just the same old lies from LDN’s hand-picked spokesperson at the HHS.)
    Overruling the FDA and CDC on Vaccine-release guidelines? Check, double-check, and CHECKMATE! Any vaccine will be released at the discretion and pleasure of Lord Damp Nut hisself. Don’t expect any to go to NY or CA, OR, WA, but plenty of Red States will be flooded with vaccines just prior to the election, no matter their safety or efficacy.

    And finally, the icing on the cake – a National TV announcement, extolling his strength and grit, his pure determination in defeating the deadliest Virus ever, which is still somehow less dangerous than your regular seasonal Flu, go figure, but, “If I can do it, so can every man,woman, person, TV and child in our Great Country.”
