President Donald Trump considered wearing a Superman t-shirt to celebrate defeating the coronavirus after testing positive for Covid-19.
While Democrats and liberals wished death on the president, he was reportedly on the phone with aides floating the idea of pulling a stunt on the American people.
The New York Times reported on Saturday that Trump wanted to trick the American people upon being discharged from the hospital on Monday, Oct. 5.
"In several phone calls last weekend from the presidential suite at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, Mr. Trump shared an idea he was considering: When he left the hospital, he wanted to appear frail at first when people saw him, but underneath his button-down dress shirt, he would wear a Superman T-shirt, which he would reveal as a symbol of strength ... He ultimately did not go ahead with the stunt."
New York Times reporter Thomas L. Friedman wrote an op-ed entitled, "Trump's not Superman. He's Superspeader."
But Trump's loyal supporters do see him as Superman, the embodiment of heroism fighting for truth, justice, and the American way.
