An abundance of caution

Trump is on the way to Walter Reed.

The visual of Trump striding out alone to the helicopter is likely to be seen as a reassurance that his case of coronavirus is still mild.

Still mild today. Maybe less mild tomorrow and less mild again the next day.

It’s totally normal, says the White House. Nothing to see, says the White House.

White House officials have described the choice to move Trump to Walter Reed medical center as a choice made “out of an abundance of caution,” and have described him as “working from” Walter Reed for the next few days. But the move has prompted obvious questions: if the president has only “mild symptoms,” why move him to the hospital?

Because by “mild” they mean…erm…

Staff is very very very busy closing that barn door.

The White House issued a statement on the hospital move:

President Trump remains in good spirts, has mild symptoms, and has been working throughout the day. Out of an abundance of caution, and at the recommendation of his physician and medical experts, the President will be working from the presidential offices at Walter Reed for the next few days. President Trump appreciates the outpouring of support for both he and the First Lady.

For both he and the First Lady.
