So now that Trump has tested positive, there is a certain measure of schadenfreude at the news, but that sentiment will not last long.

If Pence tests positive for Covid (and he very well might), and he too becomes incapacitated, the Presidency must be passed to Nancy Pelosi.
We need to all keep going, though, because Summer was the easy part. Fall and the return to school often brings colds and flu. It is easy to get a chill in the colder weather, and that sometimes is associated with lower immunity.
