On Monday Oct. 6, President Donald Trump was discharged from the hospital and returned to the White House. Upon arrival at the White House, he took off his mask, waved at the crowd and was seen gasping for air. The Internet went crazy.
Late last week, Trump tested positive for COVID-19. He was sent to the hospital where he was administered an experimental treatment, which includes taking steroids. On Monday, he was already released from the hospital. Before leaving the hospital he Tweeted:
I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good!
He then added:
Don’t be afraid of Covid… I feel better than I did 20 years ago!
COVID-19 has infected more than 7.4 million people in the U.S., killing nearly 210,000. Even though Trump claims to be ‘feeling better than 20 years ago,’ the president was seen gasping for air after walking up a few flight of stairs.
As expected, people took to Twitter to condone the president. Here is a collection of our favourite tweets. Enjoy!
