Did this really happen or have I fallen down the rabbit hole?

paddyanne Mon 05-Oct-20 00:19:02

Couldn't make it up could you?

He is milking the attention he is getting now as much as he can

His disregard for the value of human life is astonishing.

Even after getting the virus, he chooses to be a behind (aka derriere)

rosecarmel Mon 05-Oct-20 03:02:04

It's all very bizarre ..

BlueBelle Mon 05-Oct-20 05:50:15

A wonder he didn’t do a ‘Queen mother‘ wave

Esspee Mon 05-Oct-20 06:35:20

Mind numbingly stupid.

Spice101 Mon 05-Oct-20 06:53:44

He seems amazingly well for someone who is supposed to have a severe case of COVID.

BlueBelle Mon 05-Oct-20 07:45:14

Ummm back to my original theory methinks
A press conference without his normal orange makeup on and hair a bit dishevelled and bingo playing into the vigil for him outside and the ‘love’ of the world wishing him the best from the ‘China’ virus makes for a great sympathy vote

Whitewavemark2 Mon 05-Oct-20 07:53:06

I wonder how many people he infected this time.

MawB2 Mon 05-Oct-20 08:00:33

He is presumably going to make the best recovery ever.

Oh my principles as a Christian, even as a very fallible human being are being sorely tested!

NotSpaghetti Mon 05-Oct-20 08:01:53

Secret service in the car with him will have been put unnecessarily at risk.
SUCH a selfish man.
This is a fully sealed vehicle incase of a gas attack.

Dorsetcupcake61 Mon 05-Oct-20 08:03:37

I detest the man but wouldnt have wished severe illness on anyone. His actions defy belief but that's standard for him. What of course is terrifying are the implications of his behaviour. He has denied the severity of the virus and ridiculed those who follow the rules. If he can now boast about his incredible recovery it doesn't bear thinking about.

Oopsminty Mon 05-Oct-20 08:04:57

Oh that made me chortle, MawB2

And yes of course. He will make the best recovery ever. Better than anyone ever did.

There's stupid, and then there's Trump Stupid. He's the best at that .

I did wonder if this might boost his ratings but it appears his American fans are maybe/possibly seeing the light.

suziewoozie Mon 05-Oct-20 08:05:23

The people in the hermetically sealed car with him - even though they wearing PPE ?Let’s just say it - the world wound be s better place without this truly evil man.

EllanVannin Mon 05-Oct-20 08:06:40

I think this man is more sick than anyone's letting on.

suziewoozie Mon 05-Oct-20 08:09:24

Oh he’s sick all right but it’s nothing to do with CoVID

Oopsminty Mon 05-Oct-20 08:10:21

I'm not wishing him dead. I'm not glad he's caught the virus.

But I'm saying his behaviour has been lamentable

Whitewavemark2 Mon 05-Oct-20 08:17:24

He announced that he knows everything there is to know about covid and he’ll be talking about it when he gets back.

I don’t think I can bear it.

Whitewavemark2 Mon 05-Oct-20 08:18:33

Mind you on the optimistic side he’s trailing in the polls by 14 points.

suziewoozie Mon 05-Oct-20 08:37:58

Well I’m perilously close to wishing that because as long as he’s President thousands of others will die

suziewoozie Mon 05-Oct-20 08:44:42

Imagine how he’s going to play it now- only a man who has had it should be your next president, Biden avoided getting it because he didn’t want to understand all about it, only I can save you, God spared me so I could continue with his work .......

25Avalon Mon 05-Oct-20 08:49:18

“He aint outa the woods yet” as they say. Covid is not to be trifled with. But what do we know? One medical report says one thing and others say another. Whatever he is an extremely foolish man and ignorant as has been demonstrated in the past over Covid. I don’t rate him or Biden tbh.

Iam64 Mon 05-Oct-20 08:50:01

I feel we could have that theme music from the first Jaws movie playing in the background. Along with the "just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water" punch line.
The man is dangerous on so many levels.

I was always convinced that Johnson had covid and was very ill as a result. With Trump, I'm willing to believe he has the virus and also, willing to believe this is a publicity stunt.

If he does have the virus, how dare he put the security services at risk by this attention seeking drive around. Beyond belief again.

Lucca Mon 05-Oct-20 09:08:53

Well it appears at least one doctor in that hospital has had the courage to speak up and condemn this drive by as a dangerous stunt.

GrannyGravy13 Mon 05-Oct-20 09:19:02

Lucca I saw a tweet from one a doctor at POTUS medical centre, who condemned the drive past stunt.

Pointing out that the security team should not quarantine for a minimum of 14 days and also that due to the cocktail of drugs POTUS is receiving he should be in quarantine for twenty days.
