There have been few more wild presidential illnesses than Donald Trump’s bout with COVID-19. Since the day that a helicopter flew him to Walter Reed Hospital, a seemingly still sick Trump has made a show of his recovery. The last leg of the show was a “medical examination” by Doctor Marc Siegel on Friday night.During the Fox News broadcast, Trump boasted about how strong he was and how well the drugs have worked for him. The “benevolent” Trump even told viewers that he is looking forward to donating plasma to help others recover.
“Right now, I am medication free,” Trump said to the Fox doctor. “I’m not taking any medications as of probably eight hours ago. I’m medication free which, frankly, makes me feel good. I don’t like medication. We pretty much finished and now we’ll see how things go. Pretty much nothing. We’ve had our final doses of just about everything.”
Trump continued, “”Actually, the original transfusion, that’s supposed to last for about four months, you know that? The antibodies? And I think you’re supposed to be protected anywhere from two to four months and maybe longer than that, I don’t know.”
The plasma of recovered patients has been seen as a useful treatment for those suffering from COVID-19. When asked if he would be willing to donate his own plasma, the president said, “If that’s they want me to do, I’d love to do it.”
