Seriously, if he croaks this is going to be worth a ton.


It's a pre-order. They'll just cancel them if he dies.

Every truth told about Trump makes him more sick. The potency is directly proportional to how close the person is to Trump. Some rando on Twitter: Trump gets a little gassy. His Dr.: his temp goes up by two degrees.

To compare, Hillary was at 71% on Election Day 2016. Although with about 20 days left until the election she was almost at 90%

I also believe that Trump, the RNC chair, his campaign manager, and many of his aids had 100% less covid in their system in 2016.

Trump leaving the hospital against medical advice and endangering everyone who drove him around just to feed his ego is as on brand as it can get

ETA: They also sent the White House Press Pool back to the White House right before this joy ride, which is completely against the policy of the press pool

He’s able to find yet another unbelievable abuse of his office every single time. Just when you think he’s done it all he pulls another rabbit out of the hat. I thought the church stunt with the Bible was the ultimate ego stroke but this is certainly up there.

Every time I get mildly concerned that this COVID thing will somehow help his poll numbers he pulls a stunt like this. He legit cannot get out of his own way

I want to believe that Trump going for a ride to wave at his fans was just his final goodbye before intubation

He's a toddler. No, Donny, you can't go home from the hospital today, but if you're a good boy we'll let you ride in the truck for a while.

He will 100% go back to the White House today, and the doctors will lie about the fact that the discharge was against medical recommendations. He will also 100% NOT self-quarantine for the next 10 days

The only people worth caring about is the White House staff, many of them have been there for decades, seen several administrations and now, their livelihood, health is being put at risk for this joke of a human being?

Nope, and by his example, the GOP Senators with COVID will push to return sooner in order to confirm their SCJ
