President Donald J. Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19 this past Friday. On Saturday, he was rushed by helicopter to nearby Walter Reed Military Medical Center. A special team treated him of doctors.
Trump was treated with Regeneron’s experimental antibody therapy, not yet approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). Regeneron provided the drug after receiving a “compassionate use” request from Trump’s team of doctors. They also gave Trump Remdesivir and Dexamethasone. The FDA approved Remdesivir for COVID-19 patients who also have pneumonia. Dexamethasone is a steroid. The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends it only for patients with severe and critical COVID-19.
Trump is the only COVID-19 patient on the planet ever to receive Regeneron’s experimental antibody therapy, Remdesivir, and Dexamethasone, all at the same time.
Donald Trump was discharged from Walter Reed yesterday, only three days after first being diagnosed with COVID-19.
Here is what he tweeted yesterday afternoon before leaving Walter Reed:
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!

Don’t be afraid of COVID-19?
What a dishonest jackass. Does he think the rest of us would have received the same level of treatment that he received at Walter Reed? Does he think we will get a team of doctors treating us if we get infected with COVID-19? Does Trump believe we will get Regeneron’s experimental antibody therapy if we get infected with COVID-19?
We will get none of those things. None of the 210,000 Americans who have died from COVID-19 got those things.
Donald Trump is no Ronald Reagan
The last time we had a president who’s health was in such serious jeopardy was when a would-be assassin shot Ronald Reagan. Can you imagine Reagan getting out of the hospital after surviving his bullet wound, telling people not to be afraid of getting shot? Reagan would never have done that. Unlike Trump, Reagan was both humble and presidential. He also didn’t go out of his way to be a jackass.
I’m completely done with Donald Trump. He’s made me look forward to voting for Joe Biden, and I don’t even like Joe Biden.
