Will Trump Have Magically Recovered In Four Days And Be Released Today? It Is Still A Mystery!
Appearing on Fox and Friends this morning, White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows — who is reportedly in big trouble with Trump for telling journalists the truth about the seriousness of his infection — announced that a decision on whether or not Trump would be discharged today would most likely be made this afternoon.
Well that determination has not been made yet. Obviously he continues to improve overnight and his health continues to improve. The doctors will actually have an evaluation sometime late morning and then the President in consultation with the doctors will make a decision on whether to discharge him later today. [...]
We are still optimistic that based on his unbelievable progress and how strong he's been in terms of his fight against this Covid-19 disease, that he will be released, but that decision won't be made until later today.
Something about this description, at least the "unbelievable progress" part, feels a little Russia, a little North Korea, a little Weekend At Bernie's. But hey! What do we know. Nothing. We still really know nothing, because of how the administration is being super cagey about everything.
