My, wasn't yesterday just an an excitable infusion of Remdesiver joy and palpable drama?
Work was slow. Customers did come to the flooring desk, but most of the questions were of the inquisitive, non-revenue earning type. I did sell a 12 x 11 carpet remnant to a woman who, after purchasing it, asked if we could fold it in half so she could put it in the back of her Ford, Explorer. Rolls of carpet don't fold well... at all. In the end, she said she open the back window and let it stick out.
And, of course, the Idiot Jerk chose to go to Walter Reed Hospital. The Reality Show has changed. Statements of concern flooded the air waves with all the depth of your standard, generic, wannabe Hallmark card. He was given the same sort of lip service he give so many others. Only his base feels sorrow.
Skepticism is high as to whether he really is ill. A friend of mine at work showed me a rumor stating the October Surprise was going to be his miraculous recover from Covid. This man who trolls the sewers for conspiracy theories in now the source of many. What I find most outstanding is that many of them revolve around his failing campaign, that he's still looking for a way to jumpstart his ratings. The LA Times had an interesting article noting how the nation rallied when Reagan was shot... that's not happening with the Idiot Jerk. Many more seem inclined to see this as his Karma, or what ever they want to call Judgment. One thing is for certain, his bout with this virus he called a hoax is not going to benefit his campaign. This is obvious when you see the faces of the cast from his favorite propaganda show, Fox and Friends, as Chris Wallace describes how not one member of his family wore a mask at the debate. (What! They didn't wear masks?) Can you hear my smug humor.
