Does Trump’s Weird Hospitalization Jeopardize the Peaceful Transfer of Power?

By the time you read these words, even more employees at the White House will have tested positive for COVID-19 than detailed in the already-lengthy list this morning from Reason‘s Elizabeth Nolan Brown. What, if anything, does that tell us about the patient-in-chief, his coronavirus polices to date, and the post–Election Day future?

There are vigorous differences of opinion on these questions in today’s Reason Roundtable podcast. Nick Gillespie, Peter Suderman, Matt Welch, and Katherine Mangu-Ward debate tail risk, peaceful transfers of power, erratic behavior, media hyperventilation, local corona-bungling, congressional money-printing, endless lockdowns, and more. The gang also previews this week’s vice presidential debate, explores the Sherlock Holmes–superhero connection, and talks about South Park‘s Pandemic Special.

Audio production by Ian Keyser and Regan Taylor.
