It would be one thing if they had used a little common sense.
Not to covid shame but the President and his people were so damn cavalier about their teflon resistance to a microbe that has already killed over a million people worldwide. I don't quite get it.
But of course the faithful have not been moved an inch. They stand by their President with a furor that borders on religiosity. I saw a headline yesterday on a right wing blog that said that Trump got Covid for you and all I could think of was Jesus dying for your sins. Seriously? Others point to his "god tier" genetics as proof of his divine super powers.
"I think I'll be back soon." he said. "The therapeutics, which I'm taking right now ... they look like they're miracles coming down from God." Donald Trump
Today Trump tweeted,"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!"
That's nice Mr. President. The 208,000 Americans who have already died and their families and loved ones are not so lucky. The many injured people who will now be battling the results of this pandemic for possibly the rest of their lives sadly are going to have Covid dominate their life for the foreseeable future. They didn't get experimental therapies or boutique medicine. And they listened to you say that it wasn't such a big deal, again and again. Over and over.
The Trump campaign is trying to treat the medical issue as a plus. See Trump Campaign Attacks Joe Biden for Not Having COVID-19. They are actually going after Joe Biden for not contracting the disease.
Director of Communications Erin Perrine says “Firsthand experience is always going to change how someone relates to something that’s been happening,” she said. “The president has coronavirus right now. He is battling it head on, as toughly, as only President Trump can. And of course that’s going to change the way that he speaks of it because it will be a firsthand experience.”
When Smith pressed Perrine to explain why the pandemic has taken a backseat to the economy and “law and order” in the Trump campaign’s messaging, the aide insisted that he’s “talked about coronavirus as well.”
“He’s talked about it all,” she continued. “And listen, he has experience as commander-in-chief, he has experience as a businessman, he has experience, now, fighting the coronavirus as an individual. Those firsthand experiences, Joe Biden, he doesn’t have those.”
Lumping in contracting COVID-19 with the president’s record of “creating jobs” and serving a commander-in-chief, Perrine concluded, “Those firsthand experiences are what are going to get President Trump four more years. So of course he talks about it differently now that he has lived through it.”
If I were you Donald I would get back to work lickety split. You have an election to win. Forget the doctors telling you to take it easy. You are the chosen one, the miracle man, never forget. Time's a wasting. God wants you to win. Or so I've heard.
