Donald & Melania Trump Test Positive For Covid-19, But Many Believe The President Is Scheming

​ ​ ​ ​

Welp.  The "hoax" that President Trump at one point labeled Coronavirus as has caught up with him.  Details on he and Melania testing positive for Covid-19, plus the many suspicions people have about their revelation.

 

UPDATE: VP nominee Kamala Harris and Presidential nominee Joe Biden both tested negative for Covid-19 today (10/2).  So did their spouses Dr. Jill Biden and Douglas Emhoff.

We love a humble brag.

Just hours after White House Senior Advisor Hope Hicks revealed she had tested positive for Covid-19, the current President and First Lady revealed they have tested positive as well.

The White House said today (Friday) that the President was suffering “mild symptoms” of COVID-19. It's unclear what Melania is experiencing. Before he revealed his positive test, he spoke to Fox News about Hope Hicks' diagnosis. He essentially blamed the military for infecting her, randomly mentioning in the conversation how "she's too warm of a person" to tell them "No, back up" when they walk up to her during visits.

He (falsely) stated Hope "wears a lot of masks" and then said this:

"It is very, very hard when you are with people from the military, or from law enforcement and they come over to you and they want to hug you and they want to kiss you because we really have done a good job for them. You get close, and things happen. I was surprised to hear with Hope, but she is a very warm person with them. She knows there’s a risk, but she is young. I just went out for a test, they just did it, it will come back later I guess. And the First Lady also, we spend a lot of time with Hope and others. We will see what happens… You have to treat our people great, you can’t just say, ‘Stay away! Stay away!’ They come up to you, there’s with such love with what we’ve done for them. There’s such love. You have to treat our people great."

“I spend a lot of time with Hope and so does the First Lady,” Trump continued. “And she is tremendous, I was a little surprised. But she’s a very warm person, she has a hard time when soldiers and law enforcement comes up to her, you know, she wants to treat them great, not say, ‘stay away I can’t get near you.’ It’s a very, very tough disease.”

How disrespectful to our military. We guess the fact Hope and the rest of the White House staff have been recklessly out and about mask-less since the start of this pandemic - at rallies, at meetings, at the Capitol, etc. Still, we wish Hope the best as she reportedly is "quite sick" according to ABC News.

How this affects our standing as a nation in the world is yet to be seen, but it is never a great thing when the leader of your country, a country that is a super power, has contracted a deadly virus that he's at higher risk for and that could affect him worse than it affects others due to him being high risk.

"The View" co-host Sunny Hostin said during today's show:

"He's 74, he's obese, he was in contact with many, many people- i believe 20-30 people on his airplane, he went to bendmister NJ for a rally I believe, so I worry about the people he came in contact with. worry about Melania and their son...I worry about VP Biden who was on stage with him during the debate."

Russia wasted no time chiming in:

“I'm sure that your inherent vitality, good spirits and optimism will help you cope with the dangerous virus,”
Russian President Vladimir Putin wrote in a direct message to Trump released by the Kremlin.

Vice President Mike Pence tested negative for the virus on Friday morning and “remains in good health,” his spokesman said. Apparently his wife also tested negative.

But how many others have The Trumps come in contact with and possibly infected? PLENTY. Donald and his team rarely, if ever, wear masks around each other, as we have witnessed in numerous pics, videos and by their own admissions.

 

Trump, who said back in April he WOULD NOT wear a mask and has consistently belittled the Coronavirus disease, also had a rally this week where he threw hats into the mostly mask-free crowd.

 

Members of his cabinet, like Sec. of State Pompeo, are now wearing their masks as of today, despite rarely doing so before this new revelation.

Presidential nominee Joe Biden - who battled Donald earlier this week in the wildest sh*tshow debate in American history - and VP nominee Kamala Harris took the high road, as usual, and sent their well wishes to their opponents:

 

This is despite trump berating him at Tuesday night's debate about wearing a mask.

“I don’t wear masks like him,” Trump said of Biden. “Every time you see him, he’s got a mask. He could be speaking 200 feet away from me, and he shows up with the biggest mask I’ve ever seen.”

The hosts of the first Presidential debate, The Cleveland Clinic, put out this statement saying there is low risk of exposure from the debate:

Speaker Nancy Pelosi said that hopefully Trump's diagnosis yields a "saner approach" to tackling Coronavirus. While the politicians are playing nice, the rest of us are holding a mean side eye. Across social media, people are questioning the timing of this revelation, even if it's true. We would certainly hope the President of the free world would draw the line of lies and deceit at lying about a deadly virus, but, we have no reason to believe he has a line. We've learned Trump would do any and everything to win an election and to appear to be invincible.

Trump has consistently been dismissive of the virus and played down concerns about being personally vulnerable. So, it strikes many people as odd that he so nonchalantly announced his positive diagnosis.

Here are some of the theories about why that may be. And, honestly, they don't seem too far fetched, considering who it's Trump we're talking about here.

 

Trump's war on truth has caused a nation of conspiracy theorists and a nation who cannot take anything the current White House says at face value.
