Donald and Melania will be okay, but this will obviously eliminate his campaigning for the foreseeable future. Didn’t he campaign in New Jersey today? A 14-day quarantine, but how long will a full recovery take? How long did it take Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson to get through the rough parts? I’m asking.

Don’t tell me he’ll get a sympathy surge out of this. Because my initial thought after the news broke was “could this be a ploy?” Trump has been semi-blase and certainly cavalier about the Covid threat all along. Oh, the irony.
