    Lol….he just called this administration anything but transparent…ain’t that the truth!

  2. Trump is in the highest risk categories too. Old, overweight, and low income

  3. He has the virus like he had bone spurs.

    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.

  5. 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.

    • @Bunker King….that was slick!😉

    • @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

    • @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.

    • Those weren’t mini strokes Mr. King, that medical visit was for an early physical!

      You forgot people with dementia so he has a battle ahead of him

    I do not believe anything that comes out of this White House, This could be a fake news.

  7. 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.”

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

    • @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.

    Trump will do anything for ” Rating “.

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

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

  12. 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 !

  13. 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?

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

  15. Trump will be just fine! Everyone knows that SOB’s live forever!

    Trump was incapacitated from the very beginning of his presidency.

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

    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.

  20. The Orange Chud has lied so much I don’t know if this is truth or lie.
