Why Does White House refuse tracing the sources of its outbreak?

The author discusses in an interview how relatively simple it is to trace sources of infection if given a few days and cooperation from the patients. Aside from helping to patch holes in security, is there a downside to finding this out.

  1. The downside is obvious. Knowing the extent of the White House Super Spreader’s damage would make Mr. Trump look bad. Same logic that said keep those cruise ship victims from getting off the ship back at the beginning.

  2. Ever get the feeling that we have a “fake cake” of misinformation from the regime that blends a “Potemkin President” with “Weekend at Bernie’s”.

  3. Why do you think it hasn’t already been done?

    And why should such private medical information be made public? Do you think anyone wants to be branded as the person who infected the President, or would consent to having that information made public?

    1. The health and safety of the president is public information and is important to know.

      If you were a shareholder in a major corporation and there were indications that he CEO was incapacitated you would want the truth, no?

      The regime is not just any old family, it is the one who can take us to war, to sign treaties, raise taxes (tariffs), to prosecute Americans, and a myriad of other policies that affect us daily.

      Yes, I do want to know how the president got sick and how he is doing.

      So should you.

      1. The health of the President to the extent that it is important to carrying out his duties should be public, but private matters, like if he had a rash need not be.

        But the health information of those who work around him is not public unless they choose to make it so.

  4. RE: “Aside from helping to patch holes in security, is there a downside to finding this out?”

    What would be the upside?

    Patching holes in security sounds like a good thing, but a virus is not really comparable to a burglar or a spy. Short of turning the White House, including the grounds and underground facilities into a surgical-grade, infectious-disease-controlled theater, how much patching of security is really needed?

    Assuming the conact tracing process the article describes would work, what would we learn that we don’t already know? It’s not like the movies where we need to find patient zero in order to develop a cure for the disease or else everyone on Earth will die.

    Besides, we shouldn’t assume the process would work. The article notes, for example, that if the detected viruses are genetically identical, then the time sequence of transmission cannot be determined on a genetic basis.

    No, it is possible we might learn something from the exercise, but it is probable that we would learn little of value or consequence. We might learn nothing at all.

    So, why bother? If it was flu, no one would be recommending such a study.

      1. A virus is not really comparable to a burglar or a spy, or an assailant.

        But to your point, the Kennedy assassination is one of the most studied events in history, yet the reality of it remains unresolved.

        1. I agree the analogy was imperfect.

          PS: The Kennedy assassination investigation was rife with conspiracies. Lots of money was made over the years by authors playing those theories to death.

          Unless you believe that Cruz’s or Rubio’s dad, (I forget which one was slandered) was part of the plot, I would say the simplest explanation is the best. Oswald was a lone wolf.
