Trump shows us what NOT to do when you get COVID

Last week ended with the news that President Trump and the first lady tested positive for COVID-19. And this week, things got even crazier.

We learned that Trump’s oxygen levels dropped more than once. We learned that he was transported to Walter Reed military hospital. We learned that he was being treated with an experimental drug that’s usually reserved for the worst cases, and then we saw the president leave quarantine in a vehicle and wave to supporters–while he was supposed to be under treatment for a virus that’s killed over 210,000 Americans.

It was one of those, “What’s wrong with this picture?” moments. 

What’s wrong with someone who would get into a vehicle and endanger his staffers for a photo op? What’s wrong with someone who would keep pushing lies after learning that so many people in his inner circle had tested positive?

I don’t know. But I do know this. It’s hard to believe what Donald Trump says because he’s lied to us so much. 

When he learned how serious this virus was, he shared it with Bob Woodward, but told the rest of us it would disappear like a miracle. That we should try putting disinfectant in our bodies. That we should take a lupus drug that didn’t work. That we should ignore the medical experts. 

He held rallies with thousands of people who followed his lead and didn’t wear masks. He mocked Joe Biden for wearing a mask like the experts told us we should. He even held a fundraiser with a bunch of supporters even after he knew he’d been close to a staffer who was infected.

Two hundred ten thousand Americans have died from this virus and the president’s decisions helped make that happen. 

I hope Donald Trump doesn’t die from this virus. I hope he has to live with the truth of what he’s done to the American people.

I’m a huge Jalen Hurts fan, but this loss is on him. I know Scott fumbled and Reagor dropped that last pass, but you can’t throw 3 interceptions in a game. Hopefully he learns from this and stops forcing passes into coverage. #frustrating
The acquittal of #KyleRittenhouse opens the door for white vigilantes to kill anyone they want to. It also puts a spotlight on the judge’s biased actions during the trial.
God is so good. Two years ago today we founded @ManUpPHL with a  citywide meeting on gun violence. Tonight we celebrate that with a dinner and strategy session with mentors and mentees who are working together to change lives. We are fully funded, we have committed volunteers, and we have a Listening to the Streets initiative that gets brothers off the streets and into jobs. This week we release our first white paper based on that program. We work to end gun violence one life at a time. Can’t wait to see what the next two years brings!
