The Hill reports:
A campaign official for President Trump in a Monday interview said the president getting the coronavirus gave him a unique advantage over former Vice President Joe Biden given Trump’s “firsthand experience” with the disease. “Firsthand experience is always going to change how someone relates to something that’s been happening,” Erin Perrine, the Trump campaign’s communications director, told Fox News’s “America’s Newsroom.”
“Of course that’s going to change the way that … he speaks of it, because it will be a firsthand experience,” Perrine added. “He has experience as commander-in-chief. He has experience as a businessman. He has experience now of fighting the coronavirus as an individual,” she said, adding, “Those firsthand experiences, Joe Biden, he doesn’t have those. Those firsthand experiences are what are going to get President Trump four more years.”
The Trump campaign is now attacking Biden for…not contracting coronavirus.

I just watched Erin Perrine attack Joe Biden for not having the “personal experience” that Trump has with the coronavirus and with that I have now officially heard a human say the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard in my life.
