In a recent letter, White House Physician Sean Conley announced that he expects President Donald Trump to carry out his duties as President despite having the coronavirus.
“Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments,” he said in the letter.
Despite his clear message, the media fantasized and speculated about the succession of power if President Trump became too sick to carry out his duties.
“If he becomes sick, it could raise questions about whether he should remain on the ballot at all,” the New York Times wrote on Friday.
Check out what Breitbart reported:
CNN host Don Lemon took the opportunity to slam the president, stating, “In large part, it’s his own dereliction is partly to blame for this. He chose to go out to rallies. He chose to downplay masks. He chose to not social distance and — and call it a hoax…[I]t’s horrible that the President has this, but he chose to handle the situation this way…Was this inevitable?”
Lemon used the false claim that President Trump called the coronavirus a “hoax.” The AP has fact checked this claim in the past, noting, “At the rally featured in the video, Trump actually said the phrases ‘the coronavirus’ and ‘this is their new hoax’ at separate points.”
Trump actually claimed, “They tried the impeachment hoax. … And this is their new hoax.”
AP added, “Asked at a news conference the next day to clarify his remarks, Trump made clear he was not referring to the coronavirus itself as a hoax. ‘No, no, no.’”
President Trump continued, “‘Hoax’ referring to the action that they take to try and pin this on somebody, because we’ve done such a good job. The hoax is on them, not — I’m not talking about what’s happening here. I’m talking what they’re doing. That’s the hoax.” He continued: “Certainly not referring to this. How could anybody refer to this? This is very serious stuff.”
Later on in the interview, Lemon said to Dr. Sanjay Gupta, “Is this a moment of reckoning for the president and this administration? For all of the — all of the pretending or looking the other way and trying to convince people otherwise of the science, for whatever reason — whether it was for, to make sure that he was re-elected, to make sure that he had high standing with the public, or just to — for whatever reason. Because of the economy.”
Lemon continued, “Is this now a moment of reckoning that — yes, this is real. It is not a hoax. It doesn’t care if you’re a Democrat or a Republican. It is time to take this seriously, and all the preventative measures that the scientists, the doctors, like Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx, have been touting for so long?”
