COVID is spreading around the world and infecting people, and because diseases do not distinguish between persons, they can affect anybody. Rudy Guiliani, the famed mayor of New York City and now Trump supporter in the current voting debacle, now seems to have contraacted COVID according to Mediaite.
The president made the surprise announcement that his lawyer — and the very public face of his attempt to overturn the results of the 2020 election — tested positive for Covid-19.
“Get better soon Rudy, we will carry on!!!” the president tweeted.
Giuliani has, of course, been all over the country in the past week, appearing in person sans mask at hearings before state legislatures attempting to get them to overturn results. (source)
Does Rudy actually have COVID? Did Trump actually have COVID? No one really knows outside of their assertions. However, it will be interesting to see, from a trends viewpoint, what affect his illness- real or not -has on the current perceptions of the political arena, with at the current time, the assumption being that Biden will ascend to office this January.
