Trump Checking Out Of Walter Reed, Has Things To Do, People To Infect
Trump just announced in a tweet that he will be leaving Walter Reed at 6:30pm tonight, on this, the fourth day of his bout with coronavirus — a virus that is usually most dangerous between the fifth through tenth days.
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don't be afraid of Covid. Don't let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!
Steroids will do that to you.
Telling people not to be afraid of COVID-19, a virus that has now killed 215,000 Americans, is quite a thing to do. Especially when not everyone has the money to be rushed, by air, to a hospital where they can try every single drug available. Especially when he has socialized health care and we do not.
By going to the White House, he's putting everyone there at risk. He's still infectious, and he doesn't freaking give a shit, because what matters to him is that he looks manly.
