Why does Donald Trump allow himself to be surrounded by cretinous Washington D.C. villains who won’t think twice to throw him under the bus for fame or a quick dollar?
It started with the likes of Paul Ryan and Bill Sessions — two RINOs who Trump entrusted with his legislative and legal agendas respectively — both of whom failed miserably only later to trash the Former President in the process.
Now the torch has been passed to former White House chief of staff Mark Meadows, who claims that then-President Trump tested positive for COVID-19 before a debate with Joe Biden.
Meadows angle is peculiar since he has been an ardent supporter of Trump and the Make America Great Again movement in general, but somehow, for some ungodly reason, it seems Meadows has jumped ship.
Now the Trump is forced to do damage control and clear up the rumor started by his former staffer.

Trump’s statement isn’t necessarily a contradiction of Mark Meadows’s claim, detailed in an excerpt of his forthcoming. Meadows claims Trump tested positive, then negative in a follow-up test, then positive again in a third test.
“Nothing was going to stop [Trump] from going out there,” Meadows wrote.
While the president looked “a little tired” before departing en route for the debate, held on Sept. 29, 2020, Meadows wrote he was “content” about Trump traveling to a rally in Middletown, Pennsylvania.
However, White House physician Sean Conley called him, telling him to “stop the president from leaving” because “he just tested positive for COVID.”
Although Meadows was not able to stop the president from leaving, he did inform the president of his positive COVID-19 test. Trump’s reply, Meadows said, “rhyme[d] with ‘Oh spit, you’ve gotta be trucking lidding me.'”
We’re calling bulls****!
Meadows told Trump that the test had been done with an old testing kit and that the doctors would repeat it in hopes of confirming it was a false positive. After a “brief but tense wait,” Meadows called back with news of the negative test.
Trump took that call as “full permission to press on as if nothing had happened.” Meadows, however, “instructed everyone in his immediate circle to treat him as if he was positive.”
The North Carolina Republican said Trump’s positive result on Sept. 26, 2020, was a shock to the White House after officials staged a Rose Garden ceremony celebrating the nomination of Amy Coney Barrett for a position on the Supreme Court. That ceremony was later deemed a “super-spreader event” after which several attendees contracted the virus.
Trump announced on Oct. 2, 2020, that he and his wife tested positive. He was then admitted to Walter Reed National Military Medical Center for three days.
It’s not even work mentioning the name of Meadow’s memoir, which is set for release next week.
