Is Trumpís COVID-19 contraction some kind of political stunt?

By Kevin Barrett

So the big news is that Donald Trump has allegedly been diagnosed with COVID-19. He tested positive. And, of course, the media is not asking questions about what precisely does that mean.

The New York Times reported several weeks ago that a recent study shows that up to 90% of the PCR tests, the viral tests, are in fact false positives, that is it, of the positives nine out of 10 indicate people who donít have a viable infection that could hurt them or infect anyone else.

So, we would like to know precisely what kind of test, the president had. And precisely what the results were, how many cycles did it take to show that he had the virus, assuming theyíre using that viral test. And then we would like to know also, what kind of treatment heíll be getting.

The thing is, we have a hard time here in the United States believing anything the media tell us about this or anything else, since they lied so atrociously about the political assassinations of the 1960s and then 9/11. The establishment here has no more credibility.

And so when they tell us that Trump has tested positive we donít know whether this is some kind of political stunt by either camp. It could be the Trump camp, trying to get sympathy. Psychopaths often do use the pity ploy, as Martha Stout, the expert on psychopathy, calls it, where they pretend to have some kind of condition that causes them to suffer so that people feel sorry for them. That would not be something I would put past Trump. Or could it be coming from the other side. Somebody wants to discredit Trump by laughing at him for spurning masks and social distancing and playing down the problem of the virus. And so now heís got it. Maybe they gave it to him secretly. You just donít know.

In todayís climate, the lies that weíve been told, the outrageous stunts, the political stunts ranging from assassinations to false flag events, have gotten so out of control that nobody trusts the government anymore, which is precisely why Trump was elected in the first place. People who voted for Trump were essentially voting to just blow up the system.

And so this news is very hard to interpret. But I guess the upshot of it here is that it will have a big political effect in the coming days, and weíll see how Trump reacts to it. And if he does not have a bad case and appears to be weathering it quite well and shrugging it off, it might actually end up being a big political plus for him.

Heíll look like a heroic survivor. People will admire him and his base, in particular, will think that he was right to not take it too seriously.

So, if itís a political stunt by Trump, or even if he actually just randomly contracted this virus, either way, it could actually benefit him. On the other hand, if he were to get very very sick from it, then it would kind of fuel a serves-him-right narrative from the people who have criticized him for not taking COVID seriously enough.

In any case, this is a very unpredictable time. We really canít see whatís going to happen next, and how itís going to affect the flow of events. Maybe there are people who know more than we do about whatís really going on, but those of us who donít have the right security clearance are left trying to read between the lines, just like the people in the old Soviet Union used to have to read between the lines of Pravda and other official Soviet media to try to figure out what was really going on.
