RELEASED FROM THE HOSPITAL
Monday, President Trump was released from Walter Reed Medical Center and returned home to the White House. This article has more information about his condition when he checked in Friday, and compared to Monday:
I’m also happy to report that First Lady Melania Trump tweeted that she is “feeling good” and resting. The media have nearly ignored her, except when attacking her for no particular reason, so it was good to hear that she’s doing well from the only source I trust on that subject: her.
While things are looking good for both, they will continue to be surrounded by medical staff 24/7. Trump’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, told reporters that Trump met most of his discharge conditions by Sunday afternoon. They’re being cautious because he got some new treatments, but despite all the lunacy by the media, he said hospitals try to get all patients back home as quickly as possible and "There is nothing being done here that we can’t safely do at home.”
I hope you’ll join me in continuing to pray for the full recovery and safety of the President and First Lady, and everyone else who has contracted this disease.
REPORTER CLAIMS HE FELT SAFER IN NORTH KOREA
In what may turn out to be one of the most important statements of his Presidency, Trump tweeted, “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!”
I say that’s important because it’s so desperately needed after the months of fearmongering by the left over a disease that, while it must be taken very seriously, has been used as a boogeyman to justify massive power grabs, destruction of businesses, persecution of churches, and arbitrary and discriminatory violations of basic Constitutional rights.
I predicted when Trump got this and the ghouls on the left were celebrating that they might regret getting what they wished for if he, like the vast majority of people who get this, suffered flu-like symptoms that went away fairly quickly and came out the other side saying, “We shut down the entire economy over THIS?! Why didn’t we just protect the most vulnerable while the rest of us take reasonable precautions and go on with life, the way we’ve dealt with EVERY OTHER DISEASE?!”
The COVID-19 (Chinese) coronavirus is a terrible disease, but is it really so horrifically deadly that we have to shut down our schools and businesses indefinitely and live like John Travolta in “The Boy in the Plastic Bubble” (aka “The Joe Biden Story”) for the rest of eternity? You’d think so from the way the press went into full-blown hair-on-fire mode over Trump leaving the hospital after only four days and going back to work – and being spotted WITHOUT A MASK!!! EEEEEEEEK!!!! Some of the more hysterical overreactions:
CBS’ Ben Tracy claimed that he felt safer in North Korea…
Hey, Ben: try saying some of the things to Kim Jong-Un that you say to President Trump and see how safe you feel. That would be the hard way to learn what a real dictator is.
Trump was wearing a mask when he left the hospital but someone in the Press Corps yelled out, “Do you think you’re a superspreader?” That’s funny, “superspreaders” has been my nickname for the White House Press Corps for nearly four years now.
Washington Times Pentagon reporter Mike Glenn summed it up well in a tweet: “CNN is just unwatchable. It’s one thing to imbue your broadcast with proper journalistic skepticism but they are hysterical. Jake Tapper acts like he downed a handful of bath salts. Any moment now I expect him to start gnawing on Wolf Blitzer’s face.”
At least they’re still slightly more coherent than non-media Biden supporters, who’ve gone so insane they’ve been reduced to barking like dogs (or loons) at Trump supporters. I've heard this same argument from my own dogs, and I don't know what these people want. They're already outside.
NOT BAD FOR A "WHITE SUPREMACIST"
The National Latino Peace Officers Association Advocacy has endorsed President Trump for reelection for his steadfast support of law enforcement officers.
I’ll let you know if Joe Biden ever thinks of a police organization that’s endorsed him (we’ve been waiting since the debate.) If you want to know why that is, I think Alex Plitsas (@alexplitsas on Twitter), the head of a Connecticut GOP veterans group, summed it up well when he said of the furor over Trump leaving the hospital, “With a single motorcade trip, Trump managed to get the far left to care about the safety of law enforcement again.”
QUESTION OF THE DAY
Does anyone else see these Joe Biden TV campaign ads where he says he’s going to lower middle class taxes, increase Social Security payments, tax the daylights out of the rich and corporations without harming the economy, bring jobs back to America, etc., etc., and think, “Wow, Joe can really work miracles! Wait…he’s been in Washington 47 years. Why didn’t he do any of that before now?”
NBA RATINGS FALL
You’d think that with so many people stuck at home, they’d be desperate for some new sports to watch on TV. But not so desperate that they want to watch the NB(LM)A Finals, or as it’s now known, the “Woke Olympics.” If you thought the ratings for Game One of the NBA Finals were low (a 4.1 rating and 7.41 million viewers, by far the least-watched NBA Finals game in history), wait till I tell you about Game Two.
After getting a load of all the Anthem-kneeling, BLM-genuflecting, racial finger-pointing and virtue-signaling of Game One, nearly three million more former basketball fans found something – or anything - better to do. Ratings for Game Two plummeted 68% from last year to a 1.9 rating and only 4.5 million viewers. To put that in perspective, over the last quarter, “Hannity” on Fox News averaged 4.454 million viewers every night. “Hannity” now routinely outdraws the NBA Finals.
LeBron James, who has led the NBA into the death spiral of badmouthing America as an oppressive racist society, recently bought a $32 million Beverly Hills mansion – you know, instead of giving his ill-gotten capitalist profits away to inner city social programs. If he hopes to keep up the mortgage payments, he might want to rethink what he and his fellow social justice warriors are doing to the NBA. If the ratings keep falling at this rate, the players might end up hanging around supermarkets, holding signs that read “Will get items down off the top shelf for food.”
