Donald Trump made his way back to the White House Monday evening after he was discharged from Walter Reed National Military Medical Center following his positive Covid diagnosis despite multiple warnings.
He confirmed much earlier in the day that he’d be leaving the hospital and that he was feeling great while strongly medicated.
Even though Trump is technically still at risk of infecting others, he staged a bizarre White House comeback Monday night that included an irresponsible mask removal and a reckless claim that there is nothing to fear from Covid-19 even though the virus has already killed 210,000 Americans.
“We’re going back. We’re going back to work. We’re gonna be out front. As your leader I had to do that. I knew there’s danger to it but I had to do it,” Trump said in a strange campaign video slapped together by his aides within an hour of his return to the White House. Trump framed himself as a warrior who took on the virus and won, according to CNN.
“I stood out front. I led. Nobody that’s a leader would not do what I did. I know there’s a risk, there’s a danger,” Trump said, even though his doctors said earlier he is still not fully “out of the woods” in his fight with the virus.
A still infectious Trump ignored advisers who wanted him to remain at the hospital and instead rode Marine One from Walter Reed Military National Military Medical Center back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
People are still trying to make sense of Trump’s madness as questions surround his health, which is crucial to establishing whether Trump went ahead with official duties while potentially infectious with Covid-19.
Meanwhile, many of Trump’s associates are coming up positive for the virus, which continues to rip through the White House–now an apparent hotspot for the virus amid flagrant violations of social distancing.
Earlier today we reported that Trump’s son, Donald Trump Jr., reportedly wants to stage an intervention for his father’s recent erratic behavior following his positive diagnosis.
Who knows what Trump will do next.
