I have to say, Trump talking about his ‘protective glow’ is not something that I saw happening:
President Donald Trump declared himself Covid-free on Sunday[.]
Trump has met the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s criteria for a safe return from isolation and is no longer at risk of spreading the virus to others, White House physician Sean Conley wrote in a memo Saturday night…
“I beat this crazy, horrible China virus,” Trump claimed in a wide-ranging, 30-minute phone interview with Fox News host Maria Bartiromo on “Sunday Morning Futures.”
The president also suggested he now has immunity from the virus…Those who have recovered from Covid-19 “have some immunity,” The AP reported last week, “but how much and for how long are big unanswered questions.”
“It looks like I’m immune for, I don’t know, maybe a long time, maybe a short time,” the president said. “It could be a lifetime. Nobody really knows, but I’m immune.”
“I even feel good by the fact that, you know, the word ‘immunity’ means something,” he added. “Having really a protective glow means something. I think it’s very important to have that. To have that is a very important thing.”
In all of my reading about COVID-19, I don’t recall seeing anything about a Covid-19 protective glow. Perhaps I missed it. But in googling “glow” just now, I thought, well, this is one helluva Trump ‘n Glow six-degrees-of-separation thing happening:
And of course, the ultimate protective glow!
Here’s Trump’s ultimate Covid protective glowgasm!
Anyway, President Trump, even post-Covid, continues to pat himself on the back for the superb job he believes he has done in managing the pandemic because only 200,000-plus Americans have died:
The president also cited an early estimate that more than 2 million Americans could’ve died if the U.S. government did nothing to combat the virus, suggesting that the fraction of that mass toll of projected deaths was evidence that his administration had done “a phenomenal job.”
“One is too many, but 2.2 million was the prediction as to how many people would die,” Trump said. “We lost 200,000-plus, and, you know, there are those that say we did a phenomenal job. We did a phenomenal job.”
Eh, too bad those 200,000-plus losers didn’t wait around to get their personal, protective glow, am I right??
Note to doubters and naysayers: contrary to your assertions that 200,000-plus Americans have not died and that the number is being intentionally inflated, here is President Trump himself agreeing that 200,000-plus Americans have indeed died from the virus.
Glow, little Glow Worm, glow:
