Thanks to opportunist Mark Meadows, whose book “The Chief’s Chief” is destined to end up collecting dust on someone’s bookshelf along with the rest of their Costco hardcovers, we’ve learned that Donald Trump totally had COVID19 when he debated Joe Biden.
Once Trump finally gave in and allowed himself to be taken to Walter Reed, information about his status was murky at best. While we saw the results of the White House Outbreak as the coronavirus tore through its halls and staff, plenty of questions were never fully answered. How long had he been positive? How serious was it? All we ever really knew was that he had to make a big show by taking Marine One instead of an ambulance to Walter Reed, because optics are more important than not infecting other people.
Trump released photos of himself “working” from a boardroom at Walter Reed because, again, optics.And then he was back at the White House doing a really bad Evita impression in no time.
Now another tidbit from the Meadows memoir gives a little extra insight into the Former Guy’s “miraculous” recovery from COVID19 that seemed to be expedited by fancy treatments. Which it was, but it also turns out Trump got a little extra TLC from McD’s.
Trump had McDonald’s brought to Walter Reed after the Regeneron started kicking in, per Meadows.

I mean, we all know hospital food isn’t the best, but I’ve seen the movie “Dave,” so I know even a fake POTUS can get anything he wants any time of day or night. Trump has the palate of a small child. If it’s not burnt tasteless meat doused in ketchup, former President* Drive-Thru will kick up a fuss until he gets his hamberders.
So once he started feeling better thanks to his Regeneron and other meds regular Americans couldn’t get at the time, it was goodbye, Lime Jell-O and Hello, Mayor McCheese. Because as his former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, once said of the fare on Trump’s plane: “There were four major food groups: McDonald’s, Kentucky Fried Chicken, pizza, and Diet Coke.”
