President Tweety McTreason announced plans to resume campaign rallies as soon as this weekend even as he continues to battle a COVID-19 infection.

“Watching the news coverage and angry at the state of the race, Mr. Trump has been imploring aides to let him resume campaign rallies as soon as this weekend, which now could be possible,” The New York Times reported Thursday. He showed up again in the Oval Office on Thursday despite efforts to get him to remain in the residence until he was more fully recovered.”

“Around the White House and inside the Trump campaign, some advisers are worried. Others are looking at the calendar and arguing that there is still a lot of time left while they realize there are few if any opportunities to change the trajectory of the race. That would be especially true without next week’s debate.”

During a Thursday telephone interview with Fox News personality Sean Hannity, Trump refused to say if he has had a negative coronavirus test.

But Trump did tell viewers he hopes to resume campaign rallies regardless of his infection status, saying he was hoping for a Saturday rally in Florida and a Sunday rally in Pennsylvania.

Holy shit. Trump, who won’t say if he’s tested negative for coronavirus (so he either hasn’t been tested or is still testing positive), says he plans to do a rally this Saturday night in Florida.

A short time later, Trump began having trouble with his voice:

Yikes. Trump’s voice is extremely hoarse and at one point gave out.

His voice gave out again a few minutes later:

Trump has some more troubles with his voice

Trump on Wednesday tweeted out a video shot from the White House Rose Garden where he says he has been “cure”‘ of COVID by the experimental drug Regeneron – then pitched the medication and promised to make it available to all Americans for free.

Trump on Thursday bizarrely claimed that he’s not contagious “at all” days after he was discharged from the hospital after a brief stay to treat him for Covid-19. He also announced he is cured from COVID.

“I’m ready to go except for the quarantine situation,” he told Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning in a telephone interview. “I don’t think I’m contagious at all. “Remember this: when you catch it you get better. And then you’re immune.”
