I was listening to Democracy Now yesterday and Amy Goodman’s run-down of the headlines included how many top-brass are supposedly in quarantine.
AMY GOODMAN: As President Trump continues to battle COVID-19 from the White House after leaving the hospital on Monday, at least 11 White House officials and their aides have tested positive for the virus. The people around him, it’s more like two dozen. On Tuesday, Trump’s anti-immigrant senior adviser Stephen Miller became the latest high-level official to announce a positive test. The disease has also reached the highest echelons of the U.S. military. Joint Chiefs of Staff Chair Mark Milley and several other senior members of the Pentagon’s leadership are quarantining, after the vice commandant of the U.S. Coast Guard, Admiral Charles Ray, tested positive.
I had a sudden thought–what if the “highest echelons of the U.S. military” are feigning quarantine as they position themselves for the real October surprise, which would be some insane strike on Iran or something equally insane and apocalyptic.
The next few weeks are going to be anxiety-filled. Take care of yourselves and try to be kind to those around you.
