After Donald Trump recklessly left Walter Reed while still ill, and unconscionably returned to the White House while still contagious, he took off his mask just before walking into the White House door. This was not only immoral, it may have proved to be a mistake, because it allowed cameras the chance to catch him gasping for air.
Trump had just walked up some stairs. But if you’re so sick with coronavirus that you still can’t walk up some stairs without being left gasping for air, you have no business leaving the hospital. Trump is still on two experimental coronavirus treatments, Resmidivir and dexamethasone. The latter is proof that the virus is in his lungs, or the doctors wouldn’t have given it to him. It’s also a drug that can cause hallucinations among other things, meaning Trump has no business being anywhere near the presidency.
But even before getting to the part where Donald Trump isn’t fit to be in office, he doesn’t appear to be long for this world. We won’t pretend to know for sure whether he’s going to live or die. But he sure looks like he’s on his last legs. Maybe he’ll get better, maybe he’ll get even worse. But this guy is in real trouble tonight.
