"Trump kept asking aides, 'Am I going out like Stan Chera ? Am I ?' " (NYC friend who died)

Conversations w Republicans close to WH over last 12 hours indicate it’s been far more dire than WH has said. Before being taken to Walter Reed, Trump kept asking aides, “Am I going out like Stan Chera? Am I?” (Chera was Trump’s NYC friend who died of Covid in April)

First, I'm surprised Trump had a "friend". Secondly, if he knows people who've died from this insidious disease, then why the hell is he pushing the false narrative that the disease is "like the flu" and hardly affects anyone?

Like the old saying goes, "with friends like that who needs enemas".

Narcissists dont believe anything can happen to them. And if the bad thing happens to someone else, they were weak...

the first time he's really had to come face-to-face with his own mortality. Surely, something's gotta be twirling around in that brain. But it might not be that transformative.

He could "sell" a story about being changed by the experience. After all, people love the stories of Scrooge and the Grinch.

I am really so tired of his existence. I don't even care about justice anymore, except for his children. I just want him to disappear from the face of the earth. I want peace back.
