The MSNBC host steered that the explanation for the White Home coverup of Trump’s COVID testing historical past is probably going as a result of he – not navy households – is the “agent of an infection.”
“He’s blaming the Gold Star households for having contaminated him, which is astonishing in its personal proper,” Maddow stated. “However why is he saying that? Did the president himself take a look at damaging earlier than that occasion?”

How lengthy do you suppose he’s been contaminated for? When do you suppose he truly acquired his final damaging take a look at? I imply they’re telling us he examined optimistic per week in the past tonight. Within the days earlier than that, he had a rally in Minnesota. He had a fundraiser in New Jersey. He had a debate with Joe Biden in Ohio. He did an enormous occasion on the Rose Backyard the place nobody wore masks and no person social distanced. He did an occasion with Gold Star households, households who misplaced a cherished one within the U.S. navy. He did an occasion with Gold Star households inside on the White Home. No one wore masks. Nobody social distanced. He did all of these issues within the days earlier than the White Home tells us he examined optimistic. Did the president hassle to get examined earlier than he did any of these occasions, any of these no-mask, no social distancing occasions? Did he? What are the chances the president was optimistic for all of these issues? It’s not a difficulty of small concern, partly as a result of the president is now blaming the Gold Star households on the White Home, at that Sunday occasion earlier than he examined optimistic. He’s blaming the Gold Star households for having contaminated him, which is astonishing in its personal proper. However why is he saying that? Did the president himself take a look at damaging earlier than that occasion? Isn’t it doable that he was the one who was optimistic at that occasion and that he was the one probably spreading it to them? I imply the president’s well being isn’t imagined to be a secret. On the problem of him testing damaging for COVID, even the Trump White Home has not handled that earlier than as a secret. The weird secrecy concerning the timing of the president’s an infection signifies that what they’re maintaining secret from us all now could be details about the president as an agent of an infection himself, whereas he’s actively, publicly blaming navy households, blaming the households of America’s fallen servicemen and servicewomen for having contaminated him. Yeah, they most likely gave it to him. Put up or shut up. You’re going to make an allegation like that, show it. When did he get his final take a look at? Why are navy households the primary ones you suppose guilty? I didn’t suppose issues would simply preserve getting worse with him every single day. I ought to have identified higher.
As soon as once more, Trump is focusing on the navy
The concept that the commander-in-chief would blame Gold Star households for his personal failure to comprise the virus within the White Home can be beautiful if it was every other president.
However that is Trump, a person who has incessantly taken goal at members of the navy. Most lately, it was reported that he referred to as troops “suckers” and “losers.”
Donald Trump is a sick, weak man whose incompetence and negligence turned the White Home right into a COVID scorching spot.
As a substitute of taking accountability and enacting more durable security protocols to guard his folks, he’s working an enormous coverup and blaming navy households for his failures.
