This answer suggests they have been quantifying his viral load in the PCR tests and not releasing their findings.
Of course his brain is smooth peanut butter so take it with a grain of salt
Newest letter from Dr. Conley—who has previously admitted lying to us to keep things upbeat—shows that he is pushing the decreasing viral load line as well. Note he stops short of saying the PCR test is negative.

If all this is true, why don’t they release the numbers?
Another buried bit of news in Conley’s letter. He says the president is fever free for well over 24h, which suggests he’s had a fever at some point in the last couple days after he left the hospital.
The doctor and Trump are clearly prevaricating, hiding his symptoms and test findings until they can say they’re improved or something. And they have outright lied about, for example, giving him oxygen. But they’re not just saying there’s no cause for concern; it’s puzzling.
Despite all the adverse disclosures buried in the letter, the White House is getting the initial headlines they wanted.
Other potential headlines:
• Trump remains PCR positive
• Trump Covid-19 symptoms have returned
• Trump had undisclosed fever in recent days

• • •

Would you accept that the Senate majority (i) holding open vacancies by refusing to vote *in any way* on Obama's judicial nominations at all and (ii) rapidly confirming Trump's nominees to those vacancies is, at least, contrary to the constitutional design?
A 2018 Senate minority report that makes the case in detail, and traces the pattern back to earlier presidents:… ImageImage

A story from the memory hole: In 2013, Republicans threw a huge fit over "court packing" when Obama tried to simply fill three existing vacancies on the eleven-member DC Circuit. Then-Rep. Tom Cotton introduced legislation to reduce the size of the court.…
In the Senate, Chuck Grassley also introduced legislation to shrink the DC Circuit by three judges with immediate effect--changing the size of a court with the conscious purpose of denying Obama the opportunity to nominate additional judges to it.… Image
Contra Grassley's statement, the Judicial Conference of the US said at the time that the court's workload required 11 judges.

"People are laughing because it's obviously a blatant political move," President Obama said.… Image

Dr. Conley said this yesterday, but Trump contradicted him in a radio interview, saying he was still on the steroid dexamethasone. No one knows what’s true.
“I don’t take it anymore,” Trump now says of dexamethasone.
Note the large bandaid on the back of his hand.

In about five minutes DOJ is scheduled to start a briefing on “a matter of national security,” which could be anything from plans to deal with ISIS detainees to, you know, a major intervention in the political process.
It is in fact the ISIS detainees; DOJ announcing indictments of members of the ISIS hostage taking call that became known as The Beatles.

This is a good thread and it’s right; making $400k per year objectively relieves you of the deprivation and stress of poverty and the lion’s share of middle-class annoyances. It is flat out rich.
I think it’s also worth describing briefly why imo the CNBC article scratches that hate click itch. There are more than four levels of wealth.
The rare rich people who makes $400k/yr by and large spend their daily lives in close proximity to the even rarer people who make millions of dollars per year; those are their bosses and clients. They spend probably way more time thinking about what those richer people have...
