Letter to the swamp creatures

Official statement by official manager of official Trump campaign:

President Trump won the first debate despite a terrible and biased moderator in Chris Wallace, and everybody knows it. For the swamp creatures at the Presidential Debate Commission to now rush to Joe Biden’s defense by unilaterally canceling an in-person debate is pathetic. That’s not what debates are about or how they’re done. Here are the facts: President Trump will have posted multiple negative tests prior to the debate, so there is no need for this unilateral declaration. The safety of all involved can easily be achieved without canceling a chance for voters to see both candidates go head to head. We’ll pass on this sad excuse to bail out Joe Biden and do a rally instead.

It’s a fact that Trump will have posted multiple negative tests before the debate? How can Bill Stepien (for it is he) possibly know that? He can’t, of course. The whole point of tests is that one doesn’t know, and one does the test in order to find out.

Also “multiple” doesn’t make any difference. They just can’t get this right, can they. Here’s how it works: no matter how many tests you take, it’s still possible for the next one to be positive, if you’ve been infected. There’s no cumulative thing going where if you get a big enough number of negative tests the universe rules that you can never get a positive one. Not how it works. You know how sometimes you don’t have a cold, and then the next day you don’t have a cold, and the day after that, for weeks and weeks? And then one day you have a cold? It’s like that.

And isn’t Bill Stepien one of the people who has tested positive?

Yes, he is.
