These are positively scary times for the United States, as we face the most pressing presidential medical emergency since ol’ Ronny Regan took one in the torso from a guy who was trying to impress Jodie Foster.
And this isn’t some quick-to-answer issue we have here; this is COVID-19 – the big daddy of all earthly diseases at this very moment, and something that can fluctuate in intensity and duration a whole heck of a lot.
Compounding this anxiety is the sheer volume of tweets, posts, and videos we’re seeing coming out of all sort of nonsensical outlets.
In short: It’s fairly easy to find yourself dooming and glooming through this ordeal.
That’s where Trump’s medical team might have given us some hope on Sunday.
President Donald Trump could be discharged from the Walter Reed Military Medical Center as soon as Monday, his doctor said.
“Our plan for today is to have him eat and to drink to be up and out of bed as much as possible,” Brian Garbaldi, MD, told reporters. “[I]f he continues to look and feel as well as he does today our hope is to plan for a discharge as early as tomorrow to the White House to continue his treatment course.”
Cmdr. Sean Conley, DO, added that Trump, who has been in the hospital since Friday evening, “is really doing well.”
Of course, COVID-19 is still quite unpredictable, with even Trump’s newest campaign manager attempting to reiterate the point on CNN as Ana Cabrera talked over him late Sunday afternoon.
