Yesterday President Trump, as a precautionary measure, went to Walter Reed Medical Center for treatment after testing positive for coronavirus. When Trump left the White House, he walked to Marine One for the trip to the hospital:

Vanity Fair correspondent Gabriel Sherman says a source told him the reason Trump walked to the helicopter:
Per source, Trump insisted on walking to Marine One. For the visual.

Trump walked? What were the other options?
Did you want him to skateboard to the helicopter? Moonwalk? What else was he supposed to do, you ridiculous hack. https://t.co/8Pdlgg52TN

As opposed to what? Getting carried out on a stretcher? https://t.co/VqjaD4C2Jq

Usually, he goes by sedan chair. https://t.co/eBH9GTGcic

Right? If it was “for the visual” maybe Trump should have had himself carried out on a diamond-encrusted palanquin carried by four aides just to cause even more media head explosions.
As opposed to what? Levitating over to it? https://t.co/0J0gPJfPdT

He was going to do cartwheels but didn’t want to show off. https://t.co/IZqlatdQ3Z

Did you want him to ride a bicycle?

You want him to crawl? https://t.co/DyPEpHzLci

You wanted roller blades? A scooter? A wheelchair? A gurney? https://t.co/fenm6hGHPJ

Should he have cartwheeled, had aides carry him on their shoulders? He was clearly capable of walking so why would he choose any other option? https://t.co/HIW03o65Qq

Trump should have walked all the way to Walter Reed just so journo heads would have exploded everywhere.

Do you need to take a couple Pamprin and lie down for a while? Maybe place a cool washcloth across your forehead.
