    In an attempt to display his supposed personal victory over COVID-19 after contracting the virus, US President Donald Trump recently gave a bizarre salute to the public while seeming barely able to breathe.

    Blowing Smoke
    In a strange Monday appearance, the still infected and coronavirus-shedding POTUS removed his facemask and stood for a two-minute photo op on the White House balcony. Trump was visibly out of breath after returning from his weekend stay at Walter Reed National Medical Center in Bethesda, Maryland, to receive treatment for COVID-19. 


    “Don’t let it dominate your lives,” he told Americans about COVID-19 in a video he posted to Twitter on Monday after finishing a VIP round of experimental antibody treatment for the illness, which most Americans do not have access to. 

    Does Trump care about infecting his White House staff? This seems like a great way to establish a new coronavirus hotspot.
