Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 03, 2020

President Donald Trump was given supplemental oxygen at the White House Friday morning, calling into doubt the White House's claim to reporters that he only was experiencing "mild" symptoms. By that afternoon plans were made to fly him to Walter Reed Hospital on Marine One. Trump is 74, significantly obese, eats a fast food diet and often doesn't get full sleep. He'd be someone doctors would have elevated concern about after contracting a virus that has killed 200,000 people.

Doesn't Trump know that if he just didn't get tested for Covid he wouldn't have it?

If he does make a speedy recovery it will remind me of that Southpark episode where Magic Johnson discovers the cure for AIDS. Money. So he goes to Africa where the AIDS epidemic is ravaging the continent and tells all the impoverished suffering people the wonderful news.

Doc didn't want to answer the question about oxygen... and when he said that Trump is, "slightly overweight", I lost faith in him.

A report from the hospital this morning said Trump's over night vitals were somewhat "troubling."

Whatever that means in doctor talk.

Don't lose faith.

A president's doctors are encouraged to shave the truth if they think it's in the name of national security.

Everybody knows he's about 10 double cheeseburgers beyond "slightly."

Induced coma? Interesting. That sounds like respirator time.

If Trump is in a coma on election day and wins, does that mean Pence is POTUS? Very interesting. Not gonna happen but still interesting to think through.

I doubt Trump will be getting sympathy from many but his true believers. If he'd had a heart attack or fallen down stairs or something it might be different.

He not only caused his own illness, but has put the lives and health of millions who hang on his every word in jeopardy.

Someone elsewhere came up with this analogy:

What Trump did is the equivalent of leaving his campaign hotel, downing six beers, snorting coke, hopping into a convertible, putting a brick on the accelerator, and hood-surfing into a busload of orphans and a minivan with a soccer mom and her kids before slamming into a utility pole.

Trump may have wanted this to happen, subconsciously, he may have been creating an environment conducive to his own death.

It's about the only thing that makes sense about his attitudes and behaviors toward Covid 19.

Slow motion self destruction,by being unconcerned about an invisible but clearly very real and potent threat to life and his achievements.

EFFETE

You might have a point.

Trump has always been over-confident about his knack for "winning." (Not that all of it was true).

But now he's failed, in full view of the world, at the biggest challenge of his life. That's got to be a real kick in the butt for someone like Trump.

Even worse, he's tried to knock the legacy of Barack Obama off the face of the earth. Now he's losing to Obama's second banana. How embarrassing is that?

I do think there is such a thing of being subconsciously, self-destructive. Smokers, alcoholics, and obesity fall into that category. There's no reason why Trump's addictions can't take him down the same path.

This isn't the flu, that's for sure.

If Trump actually has COVID, I hope he feels awful physically so he might have a chance of 'getting' how bad it is. I say 'actually' because I wouldn't put it past Trump to fake it so he can bust out of Walter Reed as the 'strong man' who beat COVID ... or get out of the next debate.

And if Trump wanted to jump the COVID train and claim he had it it would be as simple as saying he has it.

The thing is, we can never be certain that anything Trump says is truthful. Ya, 99% chance he has it, but there's still that gnawing 1% simply because he's lost all credibility as a serial malingerer.

So, they had him on respiration twice.. this means he has the lung infection which is very bad.

Apparently it targets the tissue that permits exhalation (please don't murder me for that description), making it less elastic, limiting lung function until a secondary infection begins.

If the three medications truly are effective Trump may finally serve his true purpose as a pandemic guinea pig.
