This is the worst story of Trumps political life

There is nothing that compares.

Trump spends months downplaying the virus, telling us it's going away, that it's not big deal, you can go to work with it, we're turning a corner....

People criticize Trump for having large events with no mask mandates and no social distancing. He says they are safe, no problems at any of them.....

Trump spends months making fun of Biden for exercising COVID guidelines and wearing masks.....

Trump openly calls for businesses and schools to fully open without proper precautions in place. He rallies his supporters to fight mask wearing mandates. He refuses to wear them and tells his staff members to to wear them either.....

Trump holds another large event to introduce his Supreme Court nominee....Highly attended by VIPs....

There's a debate, Trumps group is seen openly flaunting mask rules. He ridicules Biden for wearing a mask....

The next day his inner circle gets their first positive test and Trump begins to feel a little sick....

The following day he attends a high dollar fundraiser without telling anyone there about the positive tests, potential exposure, or his own symptoms....

By the next day Trump is a confirmed positive case and forced into the hospital because of deteriorating condition. Dozens of people associated with his campaign or who attended the VIP event are testing positive as well, including senior leadership from his campaign, the Republican party, and congress. He is responsible to exposure to Supreme Court justices (including the Chief Justice), the Vice-President, and Attorney General. There is also potential exposure to the Biden campaign, military, medical professionals, and everyone else who spent any time near them,

Trump spent the year trying to convince people they shouldn't worry about COVID, that he had miracle cures, and that anyone worries about it was trying to attack him to be politically correct. His irresponsible actions have led to a crisis in the US leadership structure and a national security emergency. All a month before the election.

This is terrible for him in every single way.

This was an emergency medical extraction. He could have easily been driven if all was well and it was merely precautionary. He was medevaced.

Which is why I believe he had a video message instead of turning and speaking to the reporters. They may have been worried that he's be too short to breath to speak after walking that distance. I wouldn't be surprised if he was in a wheelchair in the residence and after departing the motorcade after the helicopter landed.

Considering his obesity and lethargy, it wouldn't surprise me. It's likely his anxiety over his positive status has just made it more noticeable to him.

You want to call the virus a hoax? Then you will most likely end up with it. Don't like wearing a mask? You won't like the ventilator either.

calling it a "democrat hoax for 70 days".. and then Mocking Masks & everyone who wore one right up to the Debate with Joe Biden.

We have the Woodward Tapes of trump confessing to thank for that.

And, yes.. trump is guilty as charged with everything you wrote..

Lies Have Consequences..



They learned NOTHING from their Tulsa Rally Tragedy when Maskless Herman Cain got it & died.. I think it was 4 months later.

when he saw me with a mask.

I wonder what he's going through right now? These MAGAs much be twitching with confusion.

His house was dark tonight.

My little dog died that day. Yesterday was the first day that I genuinely smiled and I sang a "Happy Days Are Here Again".

I wish the TV people would stop saying "We wish him well". I don't. I hope he gets what he deserves, and in spades. Karma baby! He wants to bankrupt and kill me and others by taking away my ACA with preexisting conditions. Fuck him. I hope he suffers enormously before he kicks the bucket. That IS his just desserts. No more double scoops for you, fucking moron.

"The love you take is equal to the love you make". He won't be taking any love, he only made misery for others. I guess it is another way of saying "you reap what you sow".

You know they are all lying and that they just say it because they feel they have to.

Why would anyone wish this scourge well?

Would anyone say they wished the California wildfires well? Makes about as much sense.

I am sorry about the loss of your little dog. That must have been a horrible time for you.

Just think of all the havoc he could have wreaked if he had been in politics as long as he's been in the public eye. Considering the wealth of bankruptcies, fraud, lawsuits and unethical behavior sprinkled across it, he would have a hell of a track record.

and elsewhere, I literally have no f*cks to give about ANYTHING that is "terrible" for him.

Everything "terrible" is well-deserved and then some.

My biggest concern is for those who have to risk their lives caring for this total POS and the GOPer "elite" he likely infected.
