President Donald Trump's most basic calculation -- in, well, everything he does -- boils down to this: How does this affect me?

So when his campaign made the decision to hold a campaign rally indoors in Nevada on Sunday night, Trump was, first and foremost, looking out for No. 1.

"I'm on a stage and it's very far away," Trump told the Las Vegas Review Journal when asked whether he was nervous about getting Covid-19 from the indoor rally.

And since I am going to take a wild guess and say that most of the people who went to the Nevada event won't be self-quarantining for the next 14 days, then their decision to attend Trump's rally means that they are putting at risk anyone they come into contact with over the next two weeks.

It's possible -- and we can hope -- that no one who went to Trump rally on Sunday night had coronavirus or will get it from being among so many other people.
