As always, my heart is with everyone affected by this global pandemic.” Claudia has since announced in an Oct. 4 TikTok video that she had been infected with the coronavirus, writing “hey guys, I am currently dying of COVID-19,” after a prior post where she claimed her mom had been “coughing all around the house” after Trump tested positive for COVID-19. With Claudia proving to be source of at least one major truth during the president and his central staff’s COVID-19 crisis, many people are taking her word that Trump is not doing as well as he claims to be.

User @ZackBornstein tweeted, “Claudia Conway is the only reliable source of information in DC,” while @davechensky wrote, “It is now conceivable that Claudia Conway, a 15-year-old girl, has more reliable information about the health of the President of the United States than 99.99% of Americans.” But at this point she’s a far more reliable source than any of Donald Trump ’s doctors.” At this rate, Claudia is going to end up being the most followed person on TikTok with the updates she’s posting.
CNN's chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta suggested that President Trump is in no condition to be resuming his public schedule. “He still sounds sick,” according to Gupta, after listening to Trump's phone interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity on Thursday night.
Other CNN contributors made the same observation, publishing headlines like, “Coughing Trump tells Hannity he's healthy and ready to hold rallies.” “The President insisted he was feeling great, claiming he saw his doctors earlier in the day and that they believe him to be in 'great shape,'” wrote CNN's Oliver Darcy.
President Trump spent a few days recovering at the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center in Bethesda, MD, and returned to the White House on Monday. After learning that Donald Trump was being discharged from Walter Reed Military Medical Center on Monday, Claudia called his early release “ridiculous.” Trump tweeted “I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M.
She wrote, “He is so ridiculous, apparently he is doing badly lol, and they are doing what they can to stabilize him.” To TikTok users responding to say that Trump was doing better, Claudia quickly shut them down. On October 4, Claudia shared a black-and-white video with her 1 million followers on TikTok with a message that read, “hey guys currently dying of COVID-19!” with the song “The Loser” by Zach Earache playing in the background.
The day before, Claudia posted a TikTok video complaining that her mother was “coughing all around the house after Trump tested positive for COVID-19.” @claudiamconway Claudia also claimed her mother initially lied to her about her test results.
She wrote in the comments section that “she also lied to me today and said her test was negative when it literally wasn’t and I spent all day around her. On October 2, Claudia broke the news that her mother had tested positive for coronavirus.
The TikTok video, in which she wears a large face mask, includes the text: “update my mom has COVID-19.” Kellyanne Conway confirmed her diagnosis on Twitter following her daughter’s reveal. On October 2, in a TikTok video that has since been made private, Claudia included the caption, “All for the stupid Amy Coney Barrett thing.” The celebration of Barrett’s nomination to the Supreme Court has been dubbed a superspreader event after numerous Republican guests in attendance at the mask-free event with no social distancing tested positive for coronavirus.
Claudia posted text over the clip that read, “My mom two weeks ago: It’ll be fine. During the event, Kellyanne Conway was seen talking closely with U.S. Attorney General William Barr in the Rose Garden.
I’ll see you all in two weeks,” referencing the CDC’s recommended quarantine period for people who have been exposed to the virus. Former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramouch was asked Sunday morning whether he thought President Donald J. Trump would develop a different level of hubris, humility and compassion for the more than 200,000 people who have died from COVID-19 now that he has become infected himself.
Anyone who looks at this situation knows that, so it will be interesting as to what the campaign will do as a contingency plan given the fact the president is not going to make the debate next week.” In recent days, Scaramouch has vocally called for Trump to drop out of his reelection campaign and resign from office.
But if he’s not going to do that, and he gets some level of recovery in his mid-70’s suffering from COVID-19 with all the comorbidities, I hope the people give a landslide election to Joe Biden, and we can get rid of him overall as president.” The polls are showing that, and we need to keep the pressure on and remind the American people that he has made the country weaker, sicker and poorer, and he ignored the advice of epidemiologists and scientists, the result of which he couldn’t protect his family or his staff.
Scaramouch added, “I know for a fact two that have fallen ill who want to remain anonymous as a result of what’s going on in their lives, but these are people who worked in the White House, in one case, over a decade, and they’re working for a man that would not abide by his own CDC’s protocols, a result of which loyal people serving in the White House have been sick because of him.

Many of them, like the one above, are related to his belief that Hillary Clinton and the Obama administration fabricated evidence that his 2016 campaign had connections to Russia in order to sabotage his presidency. It is not unusual for Trump to engage in binges of all-caps social media posting about obscure subjects that he has scraped from the sewers of the right-wing internet.
Murkowski Wants Trump “Out,” May Leave the Republican Party Support Grows for New Trump Impeachment After Death of Police Officer They Were Out for Blood Police Officer That Rioters Hit With Fire Extinguisher Dies, Making Capitol Siege a Murder Scene The seeming deterioration in Trump ’s state of mind has already had harmful real-world repercussions, as when he, on Tuesday, suddenly instructed Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin to pull out of what had been relatively fruitful negotiations with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi about passing another badly needed stimulus bill.
Below, we sort through some of our biggest remaining questions about Trump and his infection, some of which could be answered in the coming days. The president started feeling sick Thursday and tested positive for Covid-19 that night, his doctors have said.
He was hospitalized at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center on Friday following a dip in his oxygen levels. He’s received the antiviral remdesivir, the steroid dexamethasone, and an experimental cocktail of monoclonal antibodies that is still in clinical trials.
He returned to the White House Monday evening, and his doctor said Wednesday that Trump has been symptom-free for 24 hours. It’s possible that Trump really is feeling well and bounced back from the fever and fatigue he felt last Thursday, perhaps boosted by some treatments he’s been on.
But the rosy descriptions of the president’s demeanor and energy by his medical team have confused outside experts given that all the therapies he’s received make it sound like this is a very sick patient, at least on paper. Meanwhile, the medical team still hasn’t answered some questions outside experts have said would be helpful to know more about Trump ’s condition, including how high his fever reached last week, how low his oxygen levels got, and what his lung imaging has shown over time.
It’s important to remember that the most probable outcome for Trump, despite being in higher-risk categories as a 74-year-old overweight man, is to recover from his infection. That’s what happens with the majority of people who get Covid-19, even those who have factors that make it more likely they’ll have a severe case or die.
But Trump also received an aggressive course of treatments during what appears to be the early part of his illness, a combination of therapies that few if any other Covid-19 patients have been given at this point in the infection. The best guesses of when Trump contracted SARS-2 is likely over the weekend before he tested positive or late in the last full week of September.
The president started feeling sick on Thursday, Oct. 1, his medical team has said, and most people who do show symptoms generally do so about five days after being infected. Once people start showing symptoms of Covid-19, it typically takes another five to seven days before those who develop more serious cases get sicker.
How Trump went from fatigue and fever Thursday to a drop in his oxygen levels Friday, then, is a bit of a head-scratcher. Na hid Academia, the medical director of Boston Medical Center’s Special Pathogens Unit and an infectious disease physician, pointed out to STAT that the five-to-seven day span between symptoms and respiratory problems was the average.
Trump could still be infectious, so under recommendations from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, he should be isolated for 10 days after he became sick. If he doesn’t isolate, he could put additional administration officials and all the other people who work to keep the White House running at risk.
He has a history of mocking federal health guidelines aimed at reducing the spread of the coronavirus and has acted in ways that have alarmed experts since he was diagnosed with Covid-19, including by leaving Walter Reed to wave to supporters from the inside of a car that had at least two other people in it. On Tuesday, he again misleadingly compared Covid-19 to the flu, though there is a higher mortality rate overall for Covid-19 and scientists and clinicians are still uncovering new complications that some survivors of Covid-19 might have to live with.
Trump ’s comments this week could only cement the views of Americans who dismiss the threat of the pandemic and refuse to take the steps that can protect themselves and their communities. Mad World News has previously reported on Baba Vang, and even though she’s long been dead, her predictions have surfaced once again.
“Everyone will put their hopes in him to end it, but the opposite will happen; he will bring the country down and conflicts between north and south states will escalate,” she said. Baba correctly predicted the rise of ISIS as she said that there would be a “great Muslim war” which would start with the Arab Spring in 2010.
As if that wasn’t enough, she declared that Europe will “cease to exist” by the end of next year, possibly alluding to Brexit and the financial crisis in Greece. As Barack Obama technically remains president until January 2017, we’ll just have to wait and see what the next few months bring us, and hopefully, this psychic is wrong about Donald Trump.
