Melania Trump and her husband are completely different. She has lengthy hair; his is brief. She is from Jap Europe; he’s from jap New York. She appears to favor a quiet type of solitude; he has by no means had a thought that he hasn’t compulsively shared out loud or on the web.
However increasingly more, particularly in instances like these, we will see that also they are the identical. Take their COVID-19 diagnoses, for instance. They dealt with it in their very own approach. He received pumped stuffed with a critical steroid, dexamethasone, to deal with the novel coronavirus, after which claimed it wasn’t “heavy steroid”; she tweeted a quick replace on her personal situation after which recovered out of the highlight.
On Wednesday, although, the primary girl shared extra in an official White Home assertion, written within the first individual. It was good! She confirmed appreciation for individuals who handle her and he or she mentioned some good stuff about humility and studying. She additionally mentioned she took a “extra pure route” to recuperate from the virus, in accordance with her assertion. “Nutritional vitamins.” “Wholesome meals.” That kind of factor. No hospitalizations or experimental cocktails for her.
These with any type of hackles up concerning the type of rich-lady magical-thinking cures that value some huge cash (which are likely to get peddled particularly efficiently within the absence of agency medical solutions), would possibly arch an eyebrow on the phrase pure. It may well solid an unearned optimistic glow round not needing extra medical consideration than “nutritional vitamins” and “wholesome meals” already gives. It’s just like Trump implying he can beat the sickness as a result of he’s robust, as if 217,000 folks simply didn’t strive exhausting sufficient to dwell.
That the primary girl didn’t find yourself needing extra intense intervention is to be anticipated, or not less than it’s not stunning. A few of the bare-minimum issues recognized concerning the virus is that it hits males more durable than ladies, and it hits older folks more durable than their youthful counterparts. It’s comprehensible that she may take a ride-it-out tack, whereas others, like her husband, want hospitalization.
This observe, although so completely different in tone than something the president is able to, nonetheless doesn’t contradict a lot of the misinformation her husband breeds on-line and in public remarks. There’s not a phrase about preventative measures that one can take to keep away from contracting the illness that has killed so many globally, say, sporting a masks or limiting indoor home events. Issues, that, although not a panacea, assist scale back the unfold. As an alternative, she simply says, “I encourage everybody to proceed to dwell the healthiest life they’ll. A balanced food plan, recent air, and nutritional vitamins actually are important to maintain our our bodies wholesome.” Nothing flawed there. Simply not the entire story. A clean left open for others to fill in with fuck all.
Anyway, sounds just like the household is doing properly:
