    US President Donald Trump told his supporters during his first rally since his diagnosis and treatment for COVID-19 that he is now “immune” to the novel coronavirus, and that he wanted to give everyone in the crowd a “big fat kiss.”

    Sickening Smooch

    On Monday, Trump addressed nearly 7,000 attendees at his Sanford, Florida, rally. 

    “They say I’m immune. I feel so powerful,” Trump told the crowd. “I’ll walk into that audience, I’ll walk in there, kiss everyone in that audience. I’ll kiss the guys and the beautiful women.”
    “They say you’re immune. I don’t know for how long. Some people say for life, some people say for four months,” he said.

    The offer likely rang hollow to folks in the audience, as some 215,500 Americans have died from the disease so far. Perhaps it would be no worse than taking Trump up on his January 2016 statement that he was so popular, he could “stand in the middle of Fifth Avenue and shoot somebody” and not lose any voters.
