Regardless of whatever false and misleading statements his corrupt doctor may be making, everyone knows that Donald Trump is still highly contagious with coronavirus. To that end, multiple major news outlets have declined to send any of their reporters to cover Trump’s despicably dangerous rally in Florida tonight.
They’re not missing much. Not only is Donald Trump giving a maskless speech to a tightly packed and largely maskless audience, he’s behaving in more deranged fashion than ever. At one point during his speech he falsely claimed that he’s now immune to coronavirus, and he threatened to run out into the audience and start kissing everyone, including the men and the “beautiful women.”
Trump was likely joking, though with him you never know these days. But even if he was joking, this is utterly reckless and negligent behavior on the part of the President of the United States, who is still infected and contagious with a deadly virus. Even CNN’s John Harwood called Trump’s behavior “unhinged” tonight. He’s right.
