CHE: Trump mentioned him getting COVID was, quote, “A blessing from God.” And I guess even God was like, “Hey, we tried, guys.”
Truly, possibly we ought to be extra optimistic about this I imply, there’s two methods we are able to take a look at it. Both Trump’s telling the reality and we lastly have a treatment for COVID, or Trump is mendacity and he is nonetheless going to die. I am not going to say that is a win-win, however I am undoubtedly not gonna say it is a lose-lose!
