I have been studying the news and reports about Covid19 since the Pandemic started. I’m stunned at the footages of the President of the US, Donald Trump going back to the White House from the hospital, before being cured, to have a photo-op in a balcony in front of four American flags, solemnly taking off his mask.
He has said that he had learned a lot about the virus to announce that is not a big deal. His followers will believe him. He’s again downplaying the seriousness of this insidious illness.
It’s not the flu. It leaves permanent collateral damages in the body. The doctors said that it damages the arteries, so people who apparently get cured of the virus can later die from thrombosis or a stroke. That happened to my friend’s son. A young fellow 24 years old with a promising career in front of him. He caught the virus, was hospitalized for a few weeks, was discharged, and died suddenly from a heart attack two weeks after. No history of heart problems.
It’s also insidious because you can get cured and catch the virus again after some time. All precautions are crucial.
With his messages to the people before and after he got ill, Trump is doing a very damaging job both for the American people and himself.

“… Trump is doing a very damaging job both for the American people and himself.” He’s been doing a damaging job for the American people since he “won” the election in 2016.
I’m not American so I didn’t dare to make that statement. But I guess you’re right.
Dear Fandango and Olga,
Speaking of “getting stuck the ditch filled with murky corruption”, the USA is now mired in protracted and worsening political trench warfare.
Referring to the POTUS’s business track record, given that he has had six bankruptcies, it may be stated (concretely, figuratively or otherwise) that his seventh bankruptcy will involve not just his businesses but the USA as a whole, and the scopes will not just pertain to the economic sphere but also the moral, sociocultural, political, civil, governmental, constitutional, judicial, ministerial and environmental domains.
Whilst Pluto has been demoted to a dwarf planet, the planet of America has already ascended to plutocracy, being plagued in varying degrees by post-truth politics, demagoguery, ochlocracy, oligarchy, kleptocracy and narcissistic leadership, plus other complex issues extensively discussed in my much extended and continually improved post at http://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2017/10/18/the-quotation-fallacy/
Dear Olga and Fandango,
I can’t agree with you more. Regarding the POTUS’ Twitter account, some would even argue that it should have been suspended or terminated a long time ago for continually unleashing falsehood, misinformation and mass distrust. Fortunately, he has not (yet) been given free access to software or button(s) with which to launch weapon(s) of mass destruction.
In any case, those who are fair-minded and discerning are not easily swayed by his constant thrashing around and beating in the bush. Speaking of whether “the president really is a very stable genius”, SoundEagle’s adage is that Trump is a fool’s idea of a genius. In addition, the POTUS has long slid from being a “Law and Order” President to a “Flaw and Border” President.
The whole saga of this presidency can be summed up in one cartoon at http://soundeagle.wordpress.com/2017/10/18/the-quotation-fallacy/best-quotation-to-win-an-exclusive-loyal-contract-to-make-pig-boss-company-great-again/
