Here’s Why Trump’s COVID Diagnosis Was A Disaster

President Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19. Even though it’s been several days now, and we’ve known this was possible for months, it’s still so bizarre to read. Unfortunately, the tragedy of COVID-19 does not just stop at the infection of people like Donald Trump, but rather extends to the megaphones of our most mainstream media outlets. I’ve been in more Twitter feuds over the last week than I have been in my entire life on the platform, arguing with contributors to outlets like CNN, The Washington Post, and Fox News, among others. It seems to me that this virus and our political vitriol towards each other has caused us to lose all sense of logic and decency. From criticizing DO’s (Doctor’s of Osteopathic Medicine) for being inferior to asking doctors on TV to participate in “tabloid medicine”, I’m almost beginning to lose my cool. Today I walk you through what’s brought me to my breaking point.

  • thanks for making a good point and raising voice on it

  • This is an example of a healthy expression of opinion. Dr. Mike made a respectable effort to be objective. I disagree with his assessment of the level of danger and response to COVID. I think he should have compared Dr. Mom with CCN, not AON, but his bias was showing. His description of Trumps excursion as putting people in danger was overblown; unless his secret service agents and healthcare physicians are much over 70, in which case they shouldn't be around COVID. Nevertheless, I was impressed with his objectivity. Kudos to Dr. Mike. I disagree with so much of what you say, but this was mostly dispassionate, well-reasoned argument that this country desperately needs.

At the end of the day regardless of where they get their news/factual info what this president has done to America with covid + 221,000 deaths is deeply disturbing, disgusting and reprehensible.

And i just read, that it startet in america as well as kind of pseudoscience, but developed and is a really long time now scientific. From my point of view: Get rid of those two systems and fuse them together.

  • Dr. Mike I agree with most of what you said but I think you're being just a little unfair to the president. I understand that you think it irresponsible of him to take that ride but you also have to understand he is the leader of the free world. He has a responsibility to show the world he is doing fine even if he's not. I would also argue that his speech wasn't about downplaying or treating the virus as some kind of joke but it was about giving the country and the world hope that the light at the end of the tunnel is within view, to uplift those that are irrationally scared. Not to say people that are scared are irrational but there are people that are going way overboard because they are scared. You have a lot of people out there that are losing hope and money and jobs and businesses and they need a leader that is going to reassure them that at the end of the day everything is going to be alright. Yes more lives will be lost to this virus but we can't shrivel up and cower in fear because of it. We take our precautions but we move forward knowing we are in a much better position than we were when the outbreak started. That is what I would argue his message was.

  • I got my flu shot about four weeks ago, and I STILL have a visible purple patch on my arm from the former welts. I don't react well to the shot; I rarely have. Local hives and three days (at least) of aching joints, fever, and a near-inability to stand up and sleeping all day. Crazy itching on my arm for a week and a half; not much works for it except Benadryl. Really hot swelling. No wonder the pharmacist was kinda reluctant when I told her. I am fine; the allergic reaction didn't go beyond local hives, but I'd rather endure _all_ of this than get the flu AND Covid at the same time. I have asthma and it is the type that illnesses love. It would kill me. Yes, I work. I have to live, and my job is classified "essential".

  • Every since the heated election of 2016, I've seen two camps of thought rise in respects to mainstream journalism. I don't watch the news because it's so heavily politicized. I don't watch the news because it's so negative. I was only in high school when that election took place, a year off from being eligible to vote, so I had to stand idly by as the future of my country was decided for me. As many of my friends and colleagues did. I followed the news. The excitement, the dread, the gossip, I participated in listening to creators online debate and poke fun while the newspapers did the same. But once those ballots were counted and "the First 100 Days" began, I was done. Dr. Mike is a man of medicine, why does the man who has to care for the ill and weak remind the other professionals of the world what their ethics are? Why do reporters find more profit in writing clickable headlines than giving us the facts? And if they must be biased, why must that bias dominate the content than supplement personality into their work? Why do I have a more lucid perspective of the world locked in my room than some of these men and women who have eyes scattered across the globe? Why?

  • Yea dont be afraid. People will die, period. That is reality. Masks, social distancing, disbanding crowds. That is an unrealistic and irrational reaction. I liked watching your videos, and had respect for a knowledgeable physician such as yourself. But now i see youre just another pawn of this oh so deadly pandemic. I mean even after the CDC admitted to false numbers, noone even batted an eye. Will we also ignore the fact that hospitals profit off of those diagnosed with covid? And also those deceased from it if im not mistaken. And how ventilators, a last resort of action for near death patients, are being tossed around and used on numerous “covid patients” very unnecessarily. And you and i both know doc, unnecessary use of a ventilator on a patient is not healthy. There are numerous things that point to how unnecessary this reaction to this alleged oh so fatale pandemic is. But of course the mass media only shows what they want you to see. And its easier for people to omit their own thoughts, and just listen to their government. Wear masks, social distance, no crowds. Yup lets just do what they say, and not think twice. Then i guess one day the oh so miraculous vaccine will come and save us all!! Oh and masks are clearly not 100% effective right? They are a “preventative” method and should be used in combination with social distancing right? Well to this day it shocks me given the alleged magnitude of this virus, how the BLM riots that went on for weeks with mass crowds all over, did not cause a spike in the virus. Huh, aint that something? But of course the media didnt pay attention to that flaw so why should you?? Right?? I guess when you get in a crowd for the sake of BLM, you become miraculously immune. Wow!! This comment can go on for ages lol. Ima just leave it at this. Most of you are too braindead to even comprehend and actually think about what i wrote anyways. Youll just shoot down my comment and chalk it up to “you’re a crazy conspiracist”. Ahhh what a wonderful world we live in.

    • Ok 1. People die everyday. Yes true, but does that mean you cant be civil, responsible and empathtic? Covid is a HIGHLY CONTAGIOUS virus, with death rate and contagious rate far HIGHER than the flu. Even TRUMP HIMSELF said it on tape. You can be pre-symptomic for 2 weeks before you notice you caught it. In that 2 weeks, you can potentially spread it to the old young and sickly. You dont know how everyones immune system works. You can actually cause someones death this way bc of your reckless ways. Now, ofc the best way is to maintain social distancing, wear a mask and wash your hands. It is scientifically accurate and peer reviewed, thats why people are pushing for it. But are you going to choose to be that one weird uncle who spews studies from shady sources? Ofc it isn't foolproof, just like everything else in the world. But its still an effective preventive measure, while also meaning you are considerate and you care about others. Please be considerate, you dont know what other people are dealing with so dont risk it. Why cant people be considerate? Always about "my rights" when you dont consider other people's rights to stay healthy and not contract the virus. A great quote: YOUR RIGHTS END WHERE MINE BEGINS. 2. You lack the comprehension to comprehend data. The cdc admitted there are some false and thats to be expected, there are going to be marginal errors and such. But the 6% real deaths you like throwing around is false. Do you even get what does underlying causes mean? Once you die, in the report you have 2 sections about the cause of death, the primary and the underlying. For example, someone died of being stabbed. Main cause is the stab itself, and the underlying cause is blood loss. In the case of covid, you can't say he died from lung collapse or low oxygen intake but you should say covid bc its the MAIN CAUSE of death. So ALL deaths in the cdc right now are all REAL deaths from covid. Before you say they count car crashes and other deaths as covid cases, where are your sources? Before saying other sources are biased, why dont you take a look at yours? Facebook? UZworld? We both know they aren't real sources. Before you try to debate someone, try to learn some comprehension skills. 3. I dont support the blm riots going on while there is covid going on. No doubt there is still going be clusters of covid cases among them. But it is being condemned by a lot of people too. Even Biden himself condemns rioting and looting. NOBODY supports rioting and looting. A recent study came out that stated 97% of blm protest are peaceful. You're looking at about about 3% of violent protest and the rest are peaceful. Before you say its biased, why dont you take a look at where your sources are. If you dont have valid points to debunk that study, dont be retarded and say its biased without thinking. Nobody outside of America cares about your little Dems and Reps election. Im neither a Biden supporter or Trump supporter but its so funny how Trump supporters like their rights so much they become selfish and inconsiderate people. Remind yourself, YOUR RIGHTS END WHERE MINE BEGINS.

Why is it then that we have to wait before it worsens and becomes a pandemic before we have to take action and start protecting ourselves. Things should have happened much sooner. Shame on WHO, they are partly responsible for the worldwide chaos. Those responsible in the organisation should be held to account as they have failed the World. ANd everyone wants to blame Trump. Is Trump a good guy? Eh not really. Is he a bad guy? As the media sees, yes, but in reality, less than that.

  • Doctor Mike, I have a lot of respect for your work, but it really feels unfair for you to judge people for wishing death to Trump. I know they’re medical professionals, and I know about their oath, but they are not Trump’s doctors. It feels incredibly unjust to shame people for wanting Trump to die when he’s actively causing the death of hundreds and supporting literal concentration camps. And these people are not even harming him, they’re just hoping he’ll die and therefore not cause even more deaths. Anger is a reasonable emotional response to genocide.

Its confusing to me as well.
