"I've Looked At The Election From Both Sides Now....."

I heard Michael Smerconish, the CNN host who has a Saturday morning show, in an interview earlier today. Smerconish has been a "both sides" person when it comes to politics for years and years.
Smerconish offered the opinion that Trump's stay in the hospital for covid-19 treatment could work to his benefit in the election if he comes out and presents himself as having overcome the disease and so now he understands it better and can relate to what the average person who gets it or fears getting it is thinking. Smerconish says the election will be decided now by what people think about the virus, not by the Supreme Court nomination, or racial issues, or antifa or the economy, or anything else but the virus. So to Smerconish , how Trump reacts to his illness could decide the winner of the election.
What I want to know is what the fuck is wrong with the Michael Smerconishes of this country. How Trump reacts to his illness should have NOTHING to do with the outcome of the election. Nothing at all. Not even a little bit.
This man is not fit for office. Getting covid and surviving it is not going to suddenly make him fit for office. Frankly, there is nothing that could make him fit to hold office, we all know that. He lies, he cheats, he bullies, he steals, he corrupts, he ruins. It is the story of his life.
Nothing on this earth can make him fit for office, so it is trivial for "both sides" people to make comments like Smerconish did. He wants a horse race to the end so he can have interesting Saturday morning shows. What he should say is "it is unimaginable that we would ever return Trump to office for four more years". That is what everyone should say, but some people can't leave it at that, they have to be "fair" to both sides.
Who has Donald Trump ever been fair to ?
