WATCH: Rachel Maddow Blasts Trump for Keeping His Vaccination a Secret
To the surprise of no one, Donald Trump contracted COVID-19 in October of last year. The former President seemed to be actively seeking the virus out with his reckless behavior and packed rallies.
When he was being treated for the illness, it seemed clear that his doctors were being deceptive about his actual health. Now that Trump is out of office we now know that he was much sicker than he let on. And also that he was secretly vaccinated. Rachel Maddow blasted Trump over these two facts during her Monday night show.
Addressing reports that Trump was much sicker with COVID then let on, the host said, “We only found out months later after he was out of office. Had the White House, had the president just been honest about his personal experience of COVID, how many Republicans and people who love that president, for whatever reason, would have finally believed that COVID was serious thing to could kill even big people who you like.”
Maddow continued, “But they kept that from the American public until he was out of office. And now we also find out that he took that vaccine, but kept it a secret. At a time when simply being straight about that would have saved thousands of American lives. Or more. It’s just, it’s just unbelievable. Who did that benefit? Doing that cost millions of people their lives. Sorry, thousands of people their lives. What for? Your pride?”
