Donald Trump, our infectious, roided up president who tested positive for coronavirus just a week ago today, now says he wants to hold a rally in Florida this Saturday.

Trump called in to Hannity Thursday night, and in between a few very audible coughing fits, announced that he clearly doesn’t mind putting his supporters at risk. “I think I’m going to try doing a rally on Saturday night if we have enough time to put it together,” said Trump. "But we want to do a rally in Florida, probably in Florida, on Saturday night.” 


The president followed this up by stating he’s planning another rally in Pennsylvania Sunday night. “It’s incredible what’s going on. I feel so good,” said Trump, who says he was “cured” by experimental antiviral drug remdesivir, which is developed from aborted fetal tissue. 

Coincidently, later in the interview Trump referred to abortions as “early term executions.”

It’s currently unknown exactly when and where this Florida rally will happen, but what is known is that the president will likely still be contagious and violating guidelines set by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. 

Trump’s administration has also refused to answer questions regarding whether or not the president has recently tested negative for COVID-19. 

When asked by Hannity if he had a test since testing positive last week, Trump said: “Well what we’re doing is, probably the test will be tomorrow. The actual test, because there’s no reason to test all the time.”


Meanwhile, at least Hermain Cain’s Twitter account is still alive.
