“Start spreading the news, I’m leaving today, infecting everybody with, COVID-19.” — parody of New York, New York
It would appear that this episode of the COVID Chronicles is going to get very strange and very fast. Donald Trump, who is admittedly taking medication that alters perception, just stated on Twitter that coronavirus was no biggy.
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!

It’s beyond irresponsible for the President of the United States to use his one experience with COVID-19 and extrapolate that to millions of people who are suffering. More than 200,000 Americans have already died. Many more are in peril and have every reason to take precautions.

The bottom line is that Trump is still infected and can infect others. This is as insane as his joy ride. Let’s see what the medical professionals say.
In the meantime, let’s take a poll:
- Trump is higher than a kite on steroids and who knows what else. He doesn’t know what he’s saying;
- He’s getting sicker, and the fear of that is pushing him into a denial/fantasy state;
- He doesn’t care that even the White House housekeepers are testing positive. If everybody dies, that’s fine with him as long as he gets to play big shot.
- All of the above.
