President Donald Trump is in the hospital with the coronavirus. It’s the same virus that has killed more than 200,000 Americans and counting. More than 7 million Americans have been infected.
Trump has been in the hospital since Friday evening and since then the communication about the president’s condition has been all over the place.
The president’s physician, Sean Conley, came out and updated the country about the president and was evasive when asked questions or just simply refused to answer them at all. Essentially, Conley said Trump was doing well and there was nothing to be concerned about.
Immediately following Conley’s Saturday address, information came out that completely contradicted what the doctor told the public only minutes before. It turned out the individual who said Trump’s condition was reason for concern and that the next 48-hours would be very critical was Chief of Staff Mark Meadows.
Then on Sunday, Conley came out and confirmed what had already come out that Trump required oxygen, not once but twice and that he is is now on a steroid meant for those dealing with severe and critical cases of coronavirus.
But never fear, the White House says the doctor simply intentionally misled the public about Trump’s condition because he wanted to make Trump feel good.
Seriously, this was the answer the White House communications director gave on Fox News. She referred to this act as a common medical practice.
I’ve never known a doctor to lie to a family to make the patient feel better.
