Could it be that Trump is on the outs with Kayleigh McEnany? Because one would think that as press secretary, she would be the one releasing news and information about the president’s* condition at Walter Reed Hospital. Make what you will of it, Trump decided to call up Rudy Giuliani and let him play his Boswell. New York Post:
“You go tell people I’m watching this coverage [reporting he’s taken a turn for the worse].
“I feel I could get out of here right now. But they’re telling me there can always be a backstep with this disease. But I feel I could go out and do a rally.
“I am the president of the United States. I can’t lock myself in a room. … I had to confront [the virus] so the American people stopped being afraid of it so we could deal with it responsibly.
“We have made tremendous progress on treating this disease. Fatality rates are very low compared to [the beginning].
“I’m going to beat this.
“Then I will be able to show people we can deal with this disease responsibly, but we shouldn’t be afraid of it.
“If I had handled it any other way, I would have created more panic, more fear in the American people.
“We are making great progress on dealing with this disease and making better progress with the economy than anyone had the right to expect.”
Trump sounds like the opioids are kicking in. Plus, he sounds beyond Shakespearean, he sounds biblical. His comment, “I’m going to beat this. Then we will be able to show people how to deal with this disease responsibly….if I had handled it any other way” implies that he got COVID-19 on purpose — and just as soon as he shows it who’s the boss, he will preach the gospel of recovery throughout MAGA-land.
Gather ye MAGAts of faith, around the sterno can and wait. Trump shall overcome and his truth shall set ye free.
