Washington Post Goes Conspiracy Theory, Demands To Know Trump’s Condition

Well, it’s not as much a horrible take as many on the left and in the media are trying for (in fairness, some are good, some are ok), but, this smacks of attempting to say Team Trump is hiding his sickness from us

The nation needs the truth on President Trump’s illness

PRESIDENT TRUMP has joined the ranks of millions of Americans who tested positive for the coronavirus. On Friday, he was taken to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, where he is expected to remain for several days. We wish a speedy and uneventful recovery to him, first lady Melania Trump, White House adviser Hope Hicks and anyone else around them who contracted the virus.

Whether his recuperation is speedy or slow, however, the president’s state of health will be a matter of urgent public concern. Americans must know whether Mr. Trump is well enough to make decisions of vast importance, including those regarding the nation’s security. Experts must dispassionately trace the source of the outbreak to discern who else must take precautions. The public must be reassured that senior staff across the White House, federal agencies and Congress will be tested regularly, watched and, when necessary, isolated to contain any spread among the country’s senior leadership. That also includes Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and others who attended Tuesday’s debate in Cleveland; though the former vice president tested negative on Friday, the incubation period for the coronavirus can extend to 14 days.

The looming election may supercharge Mr. Trump’s instinct to hide or twist the truth. The record is already discouraging. The White House learned that Ms. Hicks had tested positive before Mr. Trump flew to an indoor roundtable fundraiser on Thursday. Yet the president still held the fundraiser, without wearing a mask, as though nothing were amiss. It was not the White House but a Bloomberg News report that eventually informed the public that a close presidential aide was sick with an extremely contagious virus.

This piece by the WP editorial board was published Friday at 542pm. It hadn’t even really been 24 hours since we found out Trump had Bat Soup Virus, and they’re already going moonbat.

White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows assured the country on Friday that Mr. Trump was experiencing “mild symptoms.” But such reports from political aides are not adequate. Mr. Trump was being examined late Friday by doctors at Walter Reed, where presidents go for checkups and treatments. The results should be fully disclosed by those doctors, who should answer reporters’ questions at news conferences.

Late Friday. So this loony piece was published Demanding information before there was even a chance to find out. BTW, HIPA laws, anyone? Yeah, though, we should find out, no doubt, but, the WPEB sounds like this is all some big conspiracy.

Then there’s this bit of Crazy

    President Trump was rushed to Walter Reed because his condition was deteriorating, including shortness of breath. That he is receiving Remdesivir and the Regeneron monoclonal cocktail indicates his condition MAY be worse than previously described.

    Sixty-five yr old Senator Ron Johnson (R-WI) announced he was positive for Covid.

    Oddly I saw him walk out of the White House under his own power, walk a good distance to Marine One waving along the way, walk up the steps of the chopper on his own and when he left the aircraft the reversed the procedure. There was no “rushing” or signs of distress or panic. What is it about this particular flu that makes leftists want to panic all the time?

    IOW, he did better than Hillary when she just tried to mount a Ford SUV in 2016 nearly going flat on her face needing two SS men to grab her and stuff her in.

    BTW, he does not look obese to me. A little “old man” fat around the gut but I’ve got that too. Too much ice cream. And maybe Chunky bars (can only get them on line anymore).

    John Roberts and Chris Wallace are probably the most relieved of all in DC now that their blatant anti-Trump bias and journalistic incompetence, being the most popular objects of ridicule on social media, are no in the spotlight.
