Infectious Donald Trump threw himself a Covid Parade outside of Walter Reed

Anti-Trump protesters gather in Jupiter

The Trump White House has its own in-house Ministry of Propaganda which, as we’re seeing now, rivals that of most tin-pot dictators around the world. No one – not even Walter Reed doctors – will give a straight answer about Donald Trump’s condition as he suffers through the coronavirus. Simply from the drugs he’s taking, it seems like he has a very severe case and he’s doing very poorly. The White House propaganda shop keeps putting out all of these unhinged photos of Trump signing blank sheets of paper or carefully edited videos where his wheezing and coughing has been taken out. It’s truly insane. We live in a representative democracy and Trump and his White House are behaving as if the peasants don’t deserve to know just how bad his symptoms are.

So I’m pretty convinced that Trump is sick as a dog. The White House insists that he might be able to leave Walter Reed today. Mm-hm. But then this happened yesterday:

Yeah. So minutes after this was posted, Trump ordered his Secret Service detail to drive him around the block at Walter Reed so he could wave at all of the dumbasses who have camped out there, waving Trump flags and not wearing masks. Trump threw himself a lil’ Covid Parade.

He endangered countless Secret Service agents’ lives and health just so he could wave to Nazis at a covid parade. How did his doctors even allow him to do this? What the actual f–k is happening? HE IS STILL INFECTIOUS.

    Idiot. Prayers for his agents whom he is putting in danger.

    • Jojo says:

      I had to block an idiot on Instagram who said the SS agents willingly agree to put their lives in danger when they sign up to their job.I tried to explain to the idiot that risking their lives to take bullet to save a president’s life is not the same as risking their health/life to participate in a publicity stunt/joyride.

      • shanaynay says:

        You cannot argue with his supporters. It’s a waste of time. You’d have better luck trying to argue with a brick wall than one of his supporters. They are brainwashed to no return.

      • Lizzie says:

        Probably a russian.

  2. Desdemona says:

    He’s insane!!! I just can’t believe he’s sick…If he is indeed sick…. Well I wish him “Stay positive”

    • YT says:

      Yeah. I have my doubts about his being ill and just pulling a giant debate/campaign deflection. Side-eye on the meds he is supposedly receiving. Could he be pushing a “cure” to be released before the election? Stock going up?

      • The Hench says:

        Yep – insane is the right word. This is a pithy quote from another doc at Walter Reed:
        James Phillips, doctor of emergency medicine at George Washington University, who is an attending physician at Walter Reed, called the stunt “insanity”.

        “Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential ‘drive-by’ just now has to be quarantined for 14 days. They might get sick. They may die,” he wrote in a tweet.

        “For political theater. Commanded by Trump to put their lives at risk for theater. This is insanity.”

    • AnnaKist says:

      That’s clever, Desdemona.
      Well, I hope he’s sick. Really sick, and hoping he stays sick.
      *???* *Looks around* Hmmm. Nope, not even a tiny bit sorry I said how I feel. Now I’m just going to go ahead and eat that big Mars bar that’s been next to my keyboard and taunting me for eight days.

  3. Lightpurple says:

    He’s scream tweeting this morning.

    Every medical professional I know was livid about this last night. Their Covid19 patients aren’t allowed to leave their rooms. That’s a hermetically sealed car, built to withstand chemical attacks from outside. He put the lives of those agents at risk.

    And those idiots partying outside that hospital. He’s not the only patient. Men and women who were seriously injured in service to our country are trying to recover there. They need peace and quiet. Not a noisy circus.

    • Darla says:

      This is very upsetting to me, the idea of very ill people being tortured by this screaming and horn honking. I have been very ill, and yet I know I’ve never been as ill as some of those patients, and I still shudder at the thought of that noise. Just my migraines alone, I would not be able to withstand that. Loud noise is horrific when you are sick.

      I hate these people.

    • Swack says:

      Also reported that he has visited some of the patients in Walter Reed or at least Trump has said he has.

      • The Hench says:

        New theory – do you think he is doing his best to end the pandemic early by personally infecting as many people as possible?? (sarcasm – in case it’s not obvious..)

        Can you imagine? There you are, seriously ill in hospital and the virus-ridden leader of the free world is insisting on coming to see you whether you like it or not.

      • Valerie says:

        WTF??

  4. Digital Unicorn says:

    That little stunt was to feed his fragile ego as he NEEDS the adulation and to also show how ‘strong’ he is and that COVID is nothing – THEY DO NOT CARE IF THEY INFECT PEOPLE. It also shows how scared they are about how this affects his chances of re-election as let’s face it its all he and his administration care about.

    He is clearly much sicker than they are letting on, he’s being given an experimental treatment that is ONLY given if you are very ill. If he survives COVID he’s not going to be able to do much for a looong time, he’ll pretty. much be incapacitated.

    • Darla says:

      This is what I think. First of all, IMO he will not survive Covid, time of death might be a year from now, but his body wrecked by decades of drug abuse, unhealthy eating, and refusal to even walk for exercise, cannot withstand a serious case of Covid. If he does get months or a year (thanks to socialized health care), he will not really be functional. Trump’s done. My bigger question is where is Bill Barr? Now the most dangerous man in America. Does he have it?

      • Nic919 says:

        Barr was talking to Kelly anne on Saturday pretty closely so it’s unlikely he doesn’t.

      • Lucy2 says:

        I think the same, Darla. Most people yesterday were saying that steroid makes you feel great for a bit, and then you crash, and he isn’t in to the worst part of the symptoms yet. And if he does survive this, yeah I agree he’s going to have horrible long-term side effects.
        Barr was refusing to quarantine and claiming he was negative, and then all of a sudden there was a brief change and he is quarantining. I wouldn’t be surprised if he started feeling symptoms and just won’t say it.

      • Queen Meghan's Hand says:

        THIS right here. He is in a bad way.

      • ChillyWilly says:

        @lucy2 That’s what I think happened. That steroid sent him into a manic episode and he insisted on doing his Covid Parade and nobody ever says no to this fool. Sweet baby Jesus, when is this nightmare gonna end?

      • H says:

        I take steroids for my asthma. They do make you feel better within a quick amount of time. I think the Orange One is sicker than they are letting on with drops in his oxygen levels. The thing with Covid, you could be feeling great one minute, but crash the next. I don’t want 45 to die, I want him to live, suffer through losing the election, then go to jail.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        Apparently the steroid is only recommended for those seriously ill, and if given to people with mild COVID symptoms, it can actually do more harm to them. The fact that they are treating him with the steroid seems to suggest that he is not doing well.

        COVID-19 has a very uneven progression, and many people start to see the worst effects around day 7-10. I think he was temporarily “up” because of the meds, and I think the worst is yet to come. All of this bravado could look even worse by the end of the week.

    • Esmom says:

      I read that Barr is quarantining but that so far he’s tested negative.

      I was wondering at the magnitude of the tantrum Trump must have had for so many people who should know better to relent and let him to this stupid stunt.

      Proud Boys came out to Walter Reed! He did this for the Proud Boys. And a few other psychos who have nothing better to do than hang around Walter Reed on a Sunday.

      • Digital Unicorn says:

        Have you seen what the Twitterati did to the Proud Boys hashtag on twitter over the weekend? It was FABULOUS DAHLING!! They got owned by the LGTB+ community, TicTok and BTS fans.

      • Lucy2 says:

        The retaking of the proud boys name is the best thing I’ve seen all weekend!

    • Scal says:

      WaPo reporter had sources that said the parade was because “he said he was bored and bored with watching reports about his infection on TV” /facepalm

      So yea…this was all about his ego and wanting to look tough and get attention. He can’t go without being the center of everything for 24 hours

      • holly hobby says:

        What they can’t give him a govt issued iPad for him to play video games with? Whoever signed off on this at Walter Reed needs to be fired and have their license revoked.

  5. Darla says:

    I’ve seen people speculating that they are pretending he may leave the hospital today to prop up the stockmarket. They were afraid of a massive sell off. Frankly, I have no idea why this guy not being around would be bad for the stockmarket or any business, but I am no finance bro. What do I know.

    • My3cents says:

      You’d think the stock market would go up if there’s a chance to replace this idiot sooner…

      • Arpeggi says:

        It went higher once Biden tested negative…

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Trump and Mnuchin have been pumping TRILLIONS into the stock market to artificially inflate the market for their Billionaire Boys Club members. Once they’re gone, look out for a BIG tumble, perhaps on par with 2008.

        I’ve already pulled my stock portfolio and have re-invested elsewhere, to keep my money safe until after Joe is in office. And if God forbid, the worst thing happens, I will re-evaluate next spring. But sure as hell not before that.

    • Nic919 says:

      The stock market is going to react worse to lies about his health than if he was just getting treatment. Being hopped up on steroids and talking a short car ride isn’t exactly a feat of strength. .

    • Esmom says:

      I hear you. And all the chatter about how “scary” it is not to have the POTUS at the helm of the country…as if we’ve actually had a leader for the past four years.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I also heard that he waited to go to the hospital on Friday until after the markets had closed, for the same reason.

      He’s such a dangerous idiot.

  6. G says:

    what d*ck sorry but he is

    how dare he risk the secret service agents lives with this dumb sh*t

    • Darla says:

      Kamala will shred Pence with this assault on the Secret Service at this week’s debate.

    • chicken tetrazzini! says:

      it was supposedly asked why Melania didn’t visit him in hospital and it was “because she didn’t want to endanger the secret service” sooooo, unsubstantiated, but if that heartless b gets it? ugh, I truly hate them all

  7. Esme says:

    I wouldn’t have expected him to face death with all this bluster. A showman until the end.
    *I’m not wishing him ill, to be clear, I hope he makes a speedy recovery, it’s just that this is a mortal disease and he’s in the at-risk age range.

  8. Busyann says:

    Wtf….you guys, go look at his twitter. Lol what are they giving this idiot? Whatever it is must be strong af.

    • Snuffles says:

      Dexmethasone can cause severe mood swings and feelings of euphoria and mania are side effects. So, yeah, he’s high as fuck right now and a danger to himself and everyone around him.

      • Nic919 says:

        Dump already was volatile before this so I wonder if they are even going to notice when the drug kicks in.

      • Arpeggi says:

        Will his heart even support so much excitation? Just this would be a reason not to release him today. Also, he’s clearly incapable to assume his functions right now

      • Tiffany :) says:

        He should not have his phone right now. Can you IMAGINE what he is texting Putin?

      • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

        Gotta wonder if the dose is upped to take the place of his daily snorts of Adderall. Dex is FORMIDABLE shit!

    • Lucy2 says:

      His tweets are definitely more manic than usual.
      “SPACE FORCE, VOTE!”
      Seriously? He also had the gall to say “protect pre-existing conditions, vote!” as if we don’t know which party is trying to dismantle all that.

  9. Edna says:

    Now, I’m not convinced he’s really sick anymore. Who does a drive by parade when they’re really sick? He manages to stain everything he comes in contact with. Walter Reed Hospital has always been held in high regard and this Orange 🤡 and his cult followers have turned it into a circus show.

    Instead of focusing on his condition the media needs to talk about how ridiculous and dangerous this stunt of his is. Hoping this backfires on him bigly and makes people even angrier and willing to vote for Biden.

    • Nic919 says:

      He took a car ride hopped up on drugs for a brief time, which is probably still doable at this stage.

      I was inclined to think its a hoax at first, but there are too many other people who tested positive in the WH for it not to be real. They couldn’t coordinate that many people for anything much less this.

    • holly hobby says:

      Jake Tapper did last night and it was glorious

  10. FHmom says:

    I have no idea how sick Trump is. He seems like the type to demand certain treatments whether or not they are warranted. My sympathy for him only lasted a few hours after the initial announcement. I was hoping some good could come of this, but I’m realizing that everything he touches goes to hell. I’m very worried for Joe Biden because it seems like he’s been MIA these last few days. I hope he’s healthy.

    • Darla says:

      He is okay, he released the results of 3 covid tests, all negative, and he’s having a televised town hall this week. I believe Biden is following that wide old adage; never interrupt your enemy when he’s destroying himself.

    • Also Ali says:

      “I have no idea how sick Trump is. He seems like the type to demand certain treatments whether or not they are warranted. “

      This. I think it we can all agree that anyone who goes joy riding in the middle of a hospitalization is not following any sort of normal medical protocol.

      Let’s return the focus to the election and senate hearings. The chaos he is creating around his health is a distraction from what matters.

      • Dilettante says:

        Yes to all of this.

        Wonder if he’s requested intravenous Clorox and a course of hydroxychloroquine?……

    • (TheOG) Jan90067 says:

      Joe’s out in Miami today, standing strong on his own two feet, meeting with the Latinx community and press. Jill even had to step in and get him to move a bit further away from the press when answering questions, but they were ALL in masks, even outdoors.

  11. Imogene says:

    I have my doubts that he will survive this given this little stunt he pulled and the fact that he is trying to leave the hospital on day 3 of a 5 day remdesivir course. It seems to me that he is calling the shots because he always thinks he knows best. These few early days are critical for how the disease is going to progress and he’s been focused on nothing but himself and on optics. I think he is going to absolutely tank. Also, the type and number of drugs he is on suggest something much, much worse than a mild case.

    • Snuffles says:

      I don’t know how much he can dictate his medical care, but I could see him panicking and demanding that he get every treatment available, approved or not. Of, he’s in really bad shape and the doctors are throwing the kitchen sink at him.

      • TeamAwesome says:

        They should just give him some “pirin” tablets and tell him it is what it is.

      • Swack says:

        @teamawesome – thanks for the Birdcage reference and the laugh!

      • Lucy says:

        If he’s demanding certain treatments, it’s not like doctors can’t give him placebos. Or just call the real treatment whatever he’s hollering for.
        My grandma was on “heart” medication the last 20 years of her life that was actually anti anxiety meds. She’d get anxious and have arrhythmia, so in a way they weren’t lying, her doctor knew she wouldn’t take an anxiety med.
        The fact that they’re releasing the names of the treatments makes me think he doesn’t know a specific treatment he wants other than that crazy one he was pushing, and he doesn’t realize it’s undercutting the “mild case” messaging they’re trying to sell.

  12. Deanne says:

    What a nice f#ck you to the Secret Service agents who have to ride with him. He literally doesn’t give a single thought to the welfare of anyone but himself. Now the agents have to quarantine for two weeks because this selfish, attention seeking toddler-man needed adulation from his deplorables. It is truly sickening.

  13. summertime says:

    This makes me so angry. My mother was officially tested positive yesterday so her and my dad are in quarantine now. I have an appointment at 8 am for my 11 month old and I to be tested today. Mom is CNA and they had managed to stay Covid free until a contract employee lied and said they were clear. She’s the only person we’ve really been around beside my aunt who watches my son. I’m now being forced to take the next few days off thanks to someone’s carelessness.

    • Nic919 says:

      I’m really sorry to hear this and hope that everyone recovers quickly and well. It’s frustrating when everyone is taking precaution and just one idiot exposes everyone.

    • aang says:

      Best wishes for your family.

    • Lucy2 says:

      I’m sorry. I hope your mom is OK, and no one else tests positive.

      • summertime says:

        Just confirmed, I‘m positive too. ☹️

      • Lucky Charm says:

        @ summertime – I’m praying that you and your family all recover fully with no lasting complications. I hope that they fired the worker who infected your mom! That person should be charged for willfully and negligently harming people. It’s too bad that it’s not only the Covidiots who get sick.

    • Desdemona says:

      You’ll be ok… In spite of testing positive I’m hoping you’ll have a soft infection and everythig will turn out just fine.

  14. Sarah says:

    He could have felt good yesterday because of the dexamethasone. My son used to get that drug when his asthma was really bad and he would appear much better for about 24 hours. It was after that period that we had to really watch him to make sure he was actually improving.

    • FHmom says:

      Same with my daughter. The steroid is like a miracle until you come off it.

    • Noodle says:

      @sarah, from what I’ve read about Covid, the worst hits around days 7-10. DT isn’t there yet, so he may not even know the worst of it. Claiming it’s a “mild case” on day 2 is premature; the illness can progress quickly and send the patient into a spiral shortly after.

      • Melissa says:

        THIS. It’s insane that they’re pretending this is a little weekend vacay in the hospital with fancy drugs and then be over it?

    • H says:

      Another asthmatic here. I’ve been on that steroid too. It feels like a miracle that you can breathe, then you can crash. Hoping Dumpty crashes big time.

    • Emma33 says:

      Another asthmatic – I remember not being able to keep all night at the hospital everytime they start me on it. You feel like you’re flying (and can breathe!) But the come down…uff….awful.

      I’m not expert, but what I calculate is that Trump got the virus at the rose garden massacre and the to show symptoms 4 to 5 days later (which would be last Thursday /Friday). I think most Covid patients then have four or five days of feeling pretty unwell, then they seem to start recovering. If it is going to go downhill badly, it happens after you get those few ‘recovery days’. So, if those calculations are right, Trump is still in the first, mildly unwell phase, might feel better for the next few days, and then may crash.

      The fact that he had been on oxygen during the first phase sounds a bit concerning to me.

    • schmootc says:

      I only ever got prednisone and adrenaline! I’m guessing I am too old for the dexamethasone era. (I’m 47.)

  15. The Hench says:

    I just…none, NONE of this makes any sense – even by Trumpian standards. I can’t believe all the medical staff would lie but they are giving the POTUS, the leader of the free world, treatment that is advised only in severe cases – treatment, in the case of Remsdevir that could make things WORSE if his case isn’t serious – as well as completely unproven, experimental therapy. All of this, plus the supplementary oxygen needed Friday screams that the man is in trouble.

    I mean, what doctor decides to make the President an unproven drug guinea pig less than 24hrs after he was supposedly diagnosed??

    Then, here he is, apparently wandering about fully dressed, making videos, taking Contagion car rides and tweeting like a nutter. Did he crash hard on Friday and everyone panicked? But how how bad can he have been to be able to walk to Marine One? And if he’s well enough to do this, why is he still in hospital?

    Right now, the only thing that reconciles these contradictions is that he isn’t actually ill at all and that’s a whole other pile of tinhattery.

    • emmy says:

      That’s what I don’t get. He has a team of doctors, I doubt they would give him drugs just because he demands them. Who wants to be THAT doctor if it goes wrong? So it must be severe or everyone involved is lying which seems like a bad idea even by this fool’s standards. That’s too many people involved in a lie. He has probably been infected for longer than we know, it’s the only thing that makes sense.

      • The Hench says:

        @Emmy – yes, also very possible. Certainly there is a lot of obfuscation over when his last negative test was. But given the pattern is that the serious stuff doesn’t kick in until days 7-10, the worst could still be in front of him so plying him with the Remsdevir (sp?) now seems particularly weird.

  16. Moonmade says:

    According to Peter Alexander of CNN the White House said on Sat that Melania will not be visiting her husband because
    “that would expose the agents that would drive her there”
    So people around Trump know how unethical this is.
    Of course that could have just been an excuse because she doesn’t want to see him…

    • Esmom says:

      That’s hilarious, actually. Of course she doesn’t want to see him. But that really contradicts his absolute willingness to expose the agents who drove him around in his big boy parade.

      • Moonmade says:

        The hypocrisy makes it even more maddening but I did have a laugh thinking of them coming up with an excuse! Bet she’s so glad she isn’t forced to quarantine with him for 2 weeks.
        Think she lives elsewhere anyway?

    • Swack says:

      Since she has covid would she even be allowed to visit? That would put others at the hospital at risk on top of the Secret Service.

    • ChillyWilly says:

      Melanie doesn’t give a rat’s ass about “protecting others”. She just doesn’t want to be near that POS she chose to marry and spawn with.

  17. JRenee says:

    Just watch, snippets of the press coverage will appear in campaign ads. Smdh!

  18. Snuffles says:

    @arpeggi

    His heart was probably already in bad shape but all of this unproven drug therapies will just make it worse. If COVID doesn’t kill him, the “cure” just might.

  19. Riley says:

    “We love the USA and we love what’s happening” …are you serious?!? You love the fact that 209,000 Americans have died due to your incompetence? Unbelievable.

    When I heard he had COVID, I texted a few people “I’ve never wished for anyone to die of COVID, and I’m not going to start now, but…”

  20. Christin says:

    I really don’t know what to believe anymore.

    One thing that does seem true is that he is probably not resting. Nor are other patients on that campus, thanks to the honking horns you can hear each time a reporter gives a live feed from the street.

    I feel sorry for other patients and their families, who are probably facing more difficulties due to this unnecessary circus (inside and outside).

  21. Edna says:

    Can you imagine being a medical professional and having Trump as a patient? He’s probably a nightmare to deal with.

  22. stormsmama says:

    just wanted to mention that as Commander in Chief he can literally command most of the doctors (who are active army, navy, etc) to do as he says
    So they may not lie- but instead obfuscate or omit

    also
    He is still a predator, a gaslighter, a fraud, a con, and an all around terrible human

    Oh and! have they once mentioned Baron? Im guessing maybe 1st lady doesn’t have it? She’s just on an island with Baron somewhere? Vacay time away?

    If any one else were sick they would mention that luckily their children are ok etc
    He hasn’t mentioned his kids at all right?

  23. Liz version 700 says:

    This is why I have no fear that the Secret Servive will help with a coop if he refuses to leave. They know he cares not one whit about them. These stunts with a Covid + man in an airtight sealed car must be so nerve wracking

    • Lucy2 says:

      It wouldn’t even be a coup. His term is up in January, so he either needs to be reelected, or get the hell out. Power immediately transfers to Biden, no matter where he is, and everyone would be well within the law to remove Trump from the White House.

    • H says:

      When I was in the Navy, I worked with the Secret Service on presidential visits. It was the Clinton years. I asked my boss to be on the Gore detail (I was crazy about Al Gore after reading his book). Most Secret Service are ex-military and great guys. Second year of administration, Gore comes in with a TOTALLY different detail than the first year. I asked what happened? New SS guy tells me the entire team HATED Gore and Tipper and transferred off the detail to go to the Clinton’s detail.

      I’d bet my military pension that the turnover rate on Trump’s detail is high. Not one of them would take a bullet for this fool.

  24. Emily says:

    Everything is for political theatre. Gassing peaceful protesters on live TV to wave a bible and now exposing Secret Service to a deadly virus for proof of life after Twitter figured out the time stamps in his photos were ten minutes apart. As for the tweet from Bill Kristol about who was in charge — this has Ivanka’s hands all over it (performance, no substance, terrible instincts).

  25. Rapunzel says:

    He claims he’s also visited wounded veterans. Who the f–k allowed that? Why is he not quarantined? Shame on Walter Reed.

    His Twitter timeline is 25th amendment worthy.

    This moron can’t even do being sick right. Seriously, this should have been easy sympathy points. But he’s passed that away with his stunts. If someone dies… especially someone he visited in the hospital or someone in that car…

  26. Louisa says:

    I am livid about this! Is there really no one who will say no to this overgrown toddler?

  27. Bluenoser says:

    Everything he does – he does with depraved indifference.

  28. Scal says:

    NY times reporting that trump felt so much better post steroids that he wanted to be discharged yesterday. Doctors said no and so the car ride was the compromise.

    I just-I just can’t believe this is where we are and there are still people who LOVE this guy. Why? I really do not understand.

  29. Stephanie says:

    To be honest, I’m getting very tired of hearing about “updates” on his condition, especially since I don’t care that he or his wife have the virus. I honestly and truly don’t. He is an evil narcissistic sack of dog shit who is also a murderer among other things. This crap right here is completely awful yet completely true to his character. He is an awful awful human being and I just want him out.

  30. Melissa says:

    He’s not even wearing an N95. And the dude in front of him? His mask has a valve that’s not recommended. They literally can’t do anything right.

  31. ME says:

    So let me get this straight. How many patients died alone in the hospital because it was too risky to have family there to say goodbye? How many women had to give birth during the pandemic without their partner being allowed in the room? Yet this f*cker who is Covid positive can leave the hospital to do a f*cking drive by wave in a car ??? Where are all the safety protocols now ??? This is insane and very dangerous.

    Kayleigh McEnany tested positive this morning.

    This is a plot straight out of Edgar Alan Poe.

    • H says:

      @Lightpurple, is it terrible that I hope one of these idiots die? Let the Orange One explain how his actions killed a member of his staff.

      I had a Covid test Friday because I was traveling in an area with high numbers. I stayed in all weekend, rearranged doctor’s appointments because I refused to go anywhere until I got my results. (Got them this morning, negative). But Trump can do a drive-by at WR? I’m phone banking for Biden tomorrow. So over Trump.

    • Esmom says:

      It really is. Holy hell.

    • Rapunzel says:

      LP- it’s the Masque of the Red Death right now, and I’m hoping it ends like the Cask of Amontillado. Trump in the role of Fortunato, of course.

  33. Jaded says:

    From a Mayo Clinic report:

    “Although disturbances of mood, cognition, sleep, and behavior as well as frank delirium or even psychosis are possible, the most common adverse effects of short-term Dexmethasone therapy are euphoria and hypomania.”

    Why in the name of hell did the hospital let this happen?! Why does everyone cave to this madman?! He must have thrown some presidential sized temper tantrum to the point where the doctors just gave in. Those poor people in the car with him…

    And Kayleigh McEnany deserves every last covid virus floating around in her miserable, lying sack of shit body right now.

  34. Lena says:

    According to Politico republicans think everything’s in the shitter for them already but one thing could make it worse:
    One Republican official suggested another shoe could drop that would seal the fate of the party.

    “If the White House lied about the timeline and he went to events and was around people knowing he was covid-positive,” he told Politico. “I think that is the single biggest thing that would resonate with regular people in terms of how irresponsible he was — if he put other people in danger.”

    I still can’t stop thinking about how Trump and entourage came too late for the debate on Tuesday to be tested..,,

      The Richie Riches that went to the Bedminister fundraiser should do a stop payment on their donations. It was really irresponsible of this administration.

  35. Jess says:

    The selfishness is breathtaking. And it’s in line with his supporters’ selfishness. If the Dems can take over the fed gov’t we need to pack the court immediately or this selfishness will harm millions of Americans: https://slate.com/news-and-politics/2020/10/supreme-court-packing-term.html

  36. Amando says:

    This is upsetting and sends yet another bad message to his supporters that COVID is no big deal and don’t listen to medical professionals. I hate him so much.

  37. Jayna says:

    It’s so embarrassing. There’s not many supporters there outside of Walter Reed. His little one-man parade helped point that out. He must have been pissed at how embarrassingly small the numbers were. He’s all about the numbers. LOL

  38. Cate says:

    So it’s now almost 3pm EST and no briefing from the doctors on Trump’s condition. Hmmmm. My guess is his condition has deteriorated and they can’t figure out how to spin it after the last pressers were such shitshows.

    • Jayna says:

      Nope. Trump just tweeted. He is getting out around 6:30. He feels better than he has in 20 years.(He’s loving that steroid injection I guess). Don’t let this dominate you, he says. . On and on. I am imploding. I can’t wait for him to crash and burn.

      • Traveler says:

        Yes, him minimizing covid telling everyone “don’t be afraid of covid” literally made my stomach turn. His cult is already crazy and careless, what can we expect now.
        There’s seems to be no justice in this alternate universe.

  39. SM says:

    I know it is just wrong to wish disease on someone, but unless he does get severe complications and they are simply unwilling to go on with this charade, if he gets out of hospital in a few days, he will continue with his covid is a hoax routine, as in, (in Alec Baldwin as Trump voice) “see, this is just a mind cold, this is all fuss for nothing, reopen the world and throw away your masks, and burn scientists at the stake”.

    • Nimbolicious says:

      I don’t like to wish misfortune on others either, SM. But all I’ve ever wanted since before the last election was for this dangerous, hot mess of a human to just STFU and go away. If this is the only way for it to happen, I’ll take it. Sadly though, I have my doubts – he seems like one of those ancient, indestructible cockroaches that seemingly can’t be gotten rid of by any means.

    • B n A fn says:

      He’s going to kill himself and those around him. How can anyone tested positive for covid 19 on. Friday and is better to go home on a Monday. Nothing the doctor said makes any sense. The bottom line is they are 🤥 to us.

  40. Liz says:

    Incandescent with rage.

  41. Valerie says:

    Three possibilities: He never had it and it was—as I suspected—a ruse. Nothing added up and we know that attention to detail isn’t their strong suit. They fudged the timeline, knowing that they could fool their gullible followers. That way, they could say that it’s nothin’ but a touch of the flu, and you should get on with your lives… which is exactly what they told the American people this afternoon.

    Or he DOES have it and is going to go back to the WH and spread it around to whoever is left. He’ll end up back in the hospital in a matter of days when the virus rears its ugly head again, as is often the case.

    Third option: He’s still in the hospital, possibly on a vent, and his double will go home for him. Who knows where they’ll go from there. They’ll send his kinder, gentler double out on the campaign trail to show everyone that the president is a changed man (which means admitting that he was an asshole before he got sick, lol), and hope that this will increase his popularity, thus leading him to a win. Jaysus. God Bless America.

    • Rapunzel says:

      Valerie- I doubt there’s anyone who could possibly look so much like Trump as to be his double, but I have noticed that Trump looks kinda slimmer in the hospital photos/videos. It’s also much easier to double with a mask on. So I’d say it’s not 100% impossible. And I can’t believe I’m even thinking these thoughts about the POTUS.

      • Valerie says:

        I thought the same thing, but Brendan Gleeson came pretty close in The Comey File. If that makeup team could make it happen, anyone could. And the mask helps; all they really need is someone with a passing physical resemblance who can narrow their beady little eyes into serpentine slits.

        It’s just all so bizarre.

  42. Rapunzel says:

    Saying he’s getting out at 6:30 today. That’s coincidentally after the close of the market. And the announcement that he was leaving came a couple hours before the close of market, just in time to give it a good news boost.

    I’m not entirely sure he’s gonna leave today. This could be propping up the market. I’ll believe it when I see it.

  43. Genuine Dinosaur says:

    IMO, his decision to let people see him was a presidential decision. (I can’t believe I’m writing this). America still needs a a figurehead and the world needs to know he’s not dead. If he dies before the election, you guys are 100% in civil war, because the crackpots will spread a rumour (maybe he got murdered by the baby killers, etc etc). The video wouldn’t restore confidence, as we are too aware of the editing process. Anything that delays the next civil war may just be the thing to temper the movement, and possibly (hopefully) avoid it.

    It’s not just about the US. I feel sorry for the secret service agents, but at the same time, their sacrifice was necessary. Hope they’ll not be infected.

    Normally, I don’t comment because by the time I get here, you’ve all said what needs to be said, especially about this dangerous man.

    • Rapunzel says:

      Genuine Dinosaur- the Presidential thing to do would have been to temporarily transfer power to Pence the minute he knew he was going to the hospital. That’s what a real President would have done to ensure national security.

  44. B. Neff says:

    “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life,” Trump tweeted.
    It’s easier todo when you get an escorted helicopter ride to a world class hospital minutes away from your residence; when you have immediate access to 100% attentive care by renowned medical staff & doctors; when you get drugs not accessible to most Covid-19 infected people. And when you have a full staff on hand to do all of your basic life chores while you recover, not caring if you infect those who help you . Trump’s completely out of touch with our everyday lives.

  45. Guest with Cat says:

    Nobody needs to be a doctor or even especially brilliant to know that this isn’t the damned flu. There is a wealth of information published daily on this virus and the deceptive complexity of symptoms and damage it can present in different people. I can’t imagine the kind of mind a person has to have to act like Trump and so many other grown ass adults are acting over this virus. I just can’t. These people. I just can’t. I think of him as Toddler-in-Chief. But toddlers are innocent. These adults have no excuse. None.

  46. Cecilia says:

    Some people are saying how can doctors legitimately approve any of this stuff from experimental meds to releasing him? Well, Michael Jackson had a doctor enabling him for years and was only caught after he died. Celebrities know how to go after people who are suspectible to money and power, and any doctor who is should not be given a license to practice any type of medicine.

    Also, Walter Reed isn’t looking like the kind of hospital I’d want to end up on if they let a sick man leave with the COVID. This wouldn’t work for anybody else, so why does a man in power get away with potentially infecting others and having them die? All because no one would do a psych eval and certify him? No way any other person gets away with that. I also hope the doctors had him sign AMA forms because it looks really bad if they actually discharged him. I would question the level of care I get from a hospital that lets a sick man go when I am alone in a bed unable to see my family members or friends, and denied a pass to anywhere that wasn’t a bathroom or a hospital bed in said hospital. Ridiculous work.

    Also, I feel like there’s basis for a criminal lawsuit, for intentionally exposing people to a deadly virus. He knew he had it at the debate and fundraisers and went anyways. I hope people lawyer up and throw the book at him.
