Barely a week after his father’s COVID diagnosis, Donald Trump Jr. is back at it with a crowded indoor rally mid-pandemic
Hey bros! Is there a pandemic going on? Maybe for some fools but not if you’re related to the worst president to ever exist! That’s why Donald Trump Jr., son of the recently COVID-drenched President Donald Trump, hosted a packed, indoor rally in Florida last night. Pandemic? What pandemic? It’s MAGA time and if people die for the cause, so be it.
Last night, Don Jr. touched down in Panama City Beach, Florida to hold a small gathering of like-minded friends to discuss politics in a masked, socially-distanced setting. LOL just kidding. He hosted a standing-room-only rally of shrieking covidiots, and reports say there was nary a mask in sight. Cool!
Clearly, attendees and special guests didn’t read the news from the last week involving an avalanche of positive COVID tests stemming from a White House ceremony announcing Amy Coney Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court. Get in there real close, Jimmy. Nothing to see here in regard to possibly infected respiratory droplets.
There was a rally in Tampa too. Outdoors this time, but naturally, mask-free.
Of course, this shouldn’t come as a surprise considering the president’s own totally cavalier and scientifically inaccurate view of things. Only a week ago, he was hospitalized due to his own diagnosis and reportedly had a fever and required oxygen. Reports of his health status throughout his stay were sketchy AF and have continued to be all week as he rage-tweeted from the White House. And now, he’s planning on a live “medical examination” tonight on Fox News. Because of course he is.
In yet another incredibly disturbing development, Trump’s doctor announced yesterday that he’s able to return to public engagements as soon as tomorrow. Hours later, Trump shared plans with Sean Hannity for a rally ASAP. “I think I’m gonna try doing a rally on Saturday night if we have enough time to put it together — but we wanna do a rally, probably in Florida on Saturday night,” he said. “We might come back and do one in Pennsylvania the following night, and it’s incredible what’s going on. I feel so good.”
The sad part is, thousands of his followers will line up for the president to cough on them without a second thought. Let’s slow this down a second to properly absorb it — the president tested positive for the virus late last Thursday. That means that as of today, he’s only nine total days out from that diagnosis. That makes tomorrow day 10, which just barely squeaks in for the safe period for quarantining post-diagnosis.
Doctors also threw a pu pu platter of drugs at him including one that’s still experimental. “Since returning home, his physical exam has remained stable and devoid of any indications to suggest progression of illness,” Conley said. “Overall he’s responded extremely well to treatment, without evidence on examination of adverse therapeutic effects.”
Wouldn’t one think that after the president, first lady, and a number of people in their orbit were diagnosed with the virus that they might reevaluate how things are done? Or at least express the smallest amount of concern over transmission of a virus that most Americans won’t be able to fight with the cadre of expensive therapies afforded to Trump himself? Of course not. There’s lies — and respiratory droplets — to spew. The show must go on, no matter the human cost.
