Sorry to disappoint the Resistance, Democrats, and the media, but here’s how it went down. President Trump tested positive for COVID-19, flew to Walter Reed for treatment, and is now being discharged after a weekend in the hospital to quarantine at the White House. Something those groups don’t seem to understand is that Trump is an optimist: We take it as a compliment to the doctors at Walter Reed that Trump is saying he feels better than he did 20 years ago, and we’d wild a guess that he was crediting the medicine and not the coronavirus for that.
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!

Washington Post columnist Karen Tumulty is now claiming that Trump is saying COVID-19 is a “youth elixir.”

No, that's not at all what he claimed.

Yep, that's exactly what he said.

No he didn’t. The drugs that doctors have given him likely alleviate symptoms and make him genuinely think he’s better. That doesn’t actually make him better, and may give him a false sense of how well he is. But that is not the same as calling the virus itself a “youth elixir.” https://t.co/AVziNTPT1L

The media since 1992, in a nutshell:
“This thing a Republican said is actually this insane thing a Republican didn’t say.”
For every media reaction that hasn’t followed this pattern, I can show you a hundred that did. https://t.co/miqxCBBRih

Seriously Karen. That’s what you got from that?

If you read the statement correctly he’s referring to the drugs he took and their effects on how he feels now.

"Reporter" stating what she thinks he meant by the tweet rather than just reporting on the tweet.
— Christine Breasbois (@ChristineBreas1) October 5, 2020
Wow fantastic interpretation. I think you elegantly distilled the essence of his tweet. Great job! A+
— dewired (@dewired) October 5, 2020
Sad that he's feeling better?
— Michelle Anderson (@MichPAnders) October 5, 2020
You seem upset that he is feeling better.

You sound mad
— Blue Ajax (@BlueAjax1) October 5, 2020
Sounds like someone is pissed that the President is doing better.

At some point you would think you and your buddies would realize that you do not further your cause by acting like a scorned child.

Is it impossible for the MSM to be happy that someone survived COVID???
— Long little doggie (@54Doggie) October 5, 2020
That someone survived COVID, or that Trump survived COVID?
UH OH! Trump’s tweet about when he’ll leave the hospital (and message about COVID-19) has sparked another blue check Resistance meltdown https://t.co/bDDOgpYTZl
