As the President is hospitalized at Walter Reed for coronavirus, we are seeing the worst of a highly polarized, political America on display.
A former Obama White House staffer (who was also Hillary Clinton’s spokesperson in the 2016 campaign) tweeted, “I hope he dies.” A CNN reporter lipsynched a video on TikTok to celebrate how the President’s diagnosis could cause Republicans to lose the election. And, rap singer Cardi B mocked the President on Twitter writing, “I bet you wanna wear a mask now.”
The Democratic establishment, the mainstream media establishment, and Hollywood are all attempting to pile-on at a time when the President is most vulnerable. At 74 years old, he is at higher risk yet Democrats so desperate to win, they are seemingly quite willing to send our values as a nation–including human decency–right down the drain. This morning, it was confirmed he received the experiment drug Remdesivir after experienced symptoms including a low-grade fever, cough, and nasal congestion.
The President is said to be staying optimistic. He tweeted to his followers from the hospital writing, “Going well, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!”
Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!

It’s a scary time and I hope you’ll join me in saying a prayer for our President. No matter what side of the aisle you are on, this is a time to be united for the common good of our country.
