"He can't protect the country. He couldn't even protect himeslf."

Panic in the West Wing following Trump’s hospitalization for COVID-19.

’Losing their minds'

Inside the West Wing’s narrow corridors, where staffers for months have worked in proximity largely without masks, what had long been an atmosphere of invincibility turned into one of apprehension and panic. “People are losing their minds,” said the outside adviser.

First, aides fretted about their own risks of exposure. If the president got infected, so might they. Then they considered the political implications, coming so close to the Nov. 3 election. “We don’t want to be talking about coronavirus and now we’re talking about coronavirus,” the outside adviser said.

“The hit writes itself: He can’t protect the country. He couldn’t even protect himself.”

Then they considered the reality that the president could actually get very sick. Trump was unusually quiet Friday, not appearing before cameras nor even calling into Fox News Channel by phone, as he does from time to time.

1. I can see El Trumpo

Coming out of this lessened, but not totally undone and make a sympathetic strong showing in the polls. But we all know the next weeks will see the virus run its course and it could get mighty tough on the cult if it gets grave.

He would have to admit he was wrong thus whole time and his actions made it worse.

He won't do that.

He doesn't protect the country and doesn't even protect himself.
