    1. @TrollhAuse for what?
      Getting a prosecutor fired in another Country for $1B to protect his crooked crackhead son?

      …….oh wait………………………

  1. He is probably faking it. I doubt he has it. He lies so much I can’t believe him or anyone that works for him.

  2. Don’t worry, those most likely to succumb to the symptoms of Covid are people who are over 70 and have underlying conditions such as morbid obesity or mini strokes.

    1. @Micelf Mee agreed. If he dies it will really screw up the election. Maybe he has mild symptoms, then a relapse on Nov 4, then medically induced coma and on a ventilator, wakes up Jan 22 – he’s not president anymore and is arrested for tax evasion and money laundering. Handcuffed to his hospital bed

    2. @Micelf Mee Oh sweetie, we all want that and pigs fly…aren’t we over the this boring fat little man and let us quit addressing him and go on with life without him.

    1. @WestCoast Cheesehead Did you receive your autographed poster of Mitch McConnell in his extremely revealing Hawaiian print bikini yet?
      Or are you in the bathroom with it right now?

  3. The White House doctor said he got the information, not that he conducted the diagnosis.

    So, “Someone told me, and as I’m a Republican who puts politics before country, I’m going to put my name to it. Just don’t scrutinize my words too closely.”

  4. Trump Playbook is all too simple – “Repeat a lie often enough and it becomes the truth” – Joseph Goebbels

    1. @Don Hardcastle No, stick to the nast primitive racist bully who wears thick orange make up. The draft dodging, tax evading, handicapped mocking, lying, stealing snake oil con man. With the fake cancer foundation and fake university! Stick to that turd and look around! WORST period in American history. Country in shambles. NeoFascists support this wannabe dictator. Red Hats are now Brown shirts.

    2. @kerry1111111 no bil cannot dols a candle to con-clown. Least bill gave us a great econmy after THAT gop pres before him ruined it ( much like Obama/Biden did last tiem also)

  5. How can anyone trust anything from the former “People’s House”. All bets are off especially the last four years.

  6. I demand proof before I believe he has the virus. I would not put it past the WH to put out this fake news.

  7. Like a child, even negative attention is still attention, we’re not talking about the debate, his racist views,
    his taxes today !! I would love to know how his wife got it, she can’t stand being near him. They want her quarantined so the lie doesn’t slip out of the WH !

    1. His wife is just as foul as him, don’t be making excuses for her.
      If it’s true and they have it, “I don’t care, do you?”

  8. This Dr note says he was given a positive diagnosis by someone else. So he was handed something that said POS, he didn’t perform that test I bet. Who gave him the “results” Don Jr or was it hiding in Ivanka’s purse Bible?

  9. “An administration where straightfoward truth telling is not a defining characteristic”
    Mr. Meacham certainly has a gift for understatement.

    1. Yeah, by BS Russian collusion and the Mueller investigation. 2 1/2 years of the MSM calling his Presidency illegitimate.

    1. Vaclav Majdanek. It’s kind of suspicious that with a name like yours and joining in late September that your comment would be anti tRump.

    2. Yeah, by BS Russian collusion and the Mueller investigation. 2 1/2 years of the MSM calling his Presidency illegitimate.

    3. @Raul Morales Barack and Michael would rather have Hatians tend their beans in the rose garden. Immigrants are the Democrats “hired help”

    1. @gaynor505 it’s not Trump’s fault woman don’t pay attention to you or because you paid too much for your Don Lemon bakini poster.

  10. And now we have a “president” who LIES about EVERYTHING so there is no way for us to actually know what’s going on in that extremely SICK W.H.
