Skip to comments.The last time Trump said he tested negative for COVID-19 was in May, and the White House refuses to say if he's tested negative since
Posted on 10/08/2020 8:03:56 PM PDT by SeekAndFind
Despite the seismic implications of the president of the US contracting a deadly and highly infectious disease with no cure, the White House is still providing very little basic information about President Donald Trump's coronavirus status.
Aside from his positive-test announcement on Friday which led to him being hospitalized with COVID-19 for three nights the last time Trump was on the record talking about taking a test was in May, when he said, "I tested positively toward negative."
Between Trump's "positively toward negative" disclosure on May 21 and the tweet confirming he had tested positive for COVID-19 on October 2, the White House would not point Insider toward any specific instances when Trump even took a test.
At one point in July, White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany said Trump was tested "multiple times a day." He contradicted her later in the day and said he couldn't recall taking more than one in 24 hours.
McEnany, along with other White House officials, such as spokeswoman Alyssa Farah, have declined to specify when Trump takes coronavirus tests or the last time he tested negative.
"I can't reveal that at this time. Doctors would like to keep it private," Farah said on Thursday.
The president attended 113 public events between his last known negative test and the night before he disclosed he had COVID-19, according to a database of his travel and events calendar from Factba.se, a site with a variety of Trump-related databases.
Insider asked the White House repeatedly on Thursday how often the president is tested, when his last test was, and if it had disclosed any tests taken since May 21.
"The president is tested regularly," a White House spokesman said in an email.

Business Stuff is peddling BS again.
Lone nutter conspiracy theory rag
Remember that he was taking HCQ for a time. Maybe he didn’t just do that for the fun of it. MY guess is that the dark side has been trying to expose him the Covid for some time.
Millennials. Is there anything they DO know???
I just keep laughing at their idiotic headline and the first sentence of this BS fake news.
Could there possibly be MORE LIES, in that first sentence???
Yeah, he’s tested at least once a day. Its been reported multiple times. Pay attention.
Let’s run with this.
Suppose he “tested positive” a time or two or more since May.
Each time his body was building an immune response...BULKING UP.
So when the intense dose was released—by accident or intention, I believe the latter—at the Rose Garden or at the Cleveland debate (again, I believe the latter) his immune system was ready for battle....more like a minor skirmish.
The moral of the tale: Exposure is GOOD.
Your immune system needs exercise just like your muscles.
Tear off that d@mn face diaper, breathe deeply, suck in some COVID, start bulking up and MANNING UP!
>>MY guess is that the dark side has been trying to expose him the Covid for some time.
Certainly worth investigating, the threat has been publicly made, and far Left extremists have used germ warfare against Republican presidential candidates prior to this.
Dan Savage Goes Undercover to the Iowa Caucuses and Gives Gary Bauer the Flu Bug
by Dan Savage
...Im the only new volunteer to walk through the door in quite some time, apparently, so campaign staffers dont quite know what to do with me. Only after 10 or 15 minutes of asking around does Andy, a young Bauer staffer, direct me to the phones.
...Pretending you feel fine when youve got the flu is exhausting and I have the flu in a big way. On my flight to Minneapolis, I felt this itch in the back of my throat. By the time I got to my hotel in Des Moines, all I could do was get undressed, crawl under the covers, and stay in bed for two days. On day three, still sick as a dog, I decide to get up and do my job. Im relieved when the Bauer folks stick me in an out-of-the-way cubicle, where unobserved I can allow myself to look as miserable as I feel...
I catch Gary Bauer on MSNBC. Our society will be destroyed if we say its okay for a man to marry a man or a woman to marry a woman, he says. Seeing Bauer go off about gay marriage reminds me of something he said back in December, when the Vermont Supreme Court came out for same-sex marriage: I think what the Vermont Supreme Court did last week was in some ways worse than terrorism.
In my Sudafed-induced delirium, I decide that if its terrorism Bauer wants, its terrorism Bauer is going to get. Naked, feverish, and higher than a kite on codeine aspirin, I call the Bauer campaign and volunteer. My plan? Get close enough to Bauer to give him the flu, which, if I am successful, will lay him flat just before the New Hampshire primary. Ill go to Bauers campaign office and cough on everything. Phones and pens. Staplers and staffers. I even hatch a plan to infect the candidate himself; Ill keep a pen in my mouth until Bauer drops by his offices to rally the troops. And when he does, Ill approach him and ask for his autograph, handing him the pen from my flu-virus-incubating mouth.
While I make calls, I overhear Bauers press secretary calling reporters and letting them know that Gary will be having a press conference at a cemetery at 3:30 p.m., at the grave of a fetus found in a ditch. Gary will give his usual complaint about the coarsening of our culture standing on a childs grave for emphasis. While I dial, my eyes drift over the pieces of paper pinned to the wall of my cubicle. A photocopied thought for the day catches my attention. Remember, when someone annoys you, the thought reads, it takes 42 muscles in your face to frown. But it only takes 4 muscles to extend your arm and SMACK THE &&&HOLE UPSIDE THE HEAD. Hmmm. A little coarse, I think to myself, chewing my pen.
...Ive got work to do.
I go around the room licking doorknobs. They are filthy, no doubt, but there isnt time to find a rag to spit on. If for some reason I dont manage to get a pen from my mouth to Garys hands at the conference, I want to seed his office with germs, get as many of his people sick as I can, and hopefully one of them will infect the candidate. I lick office doorknobs, bathroom doorknobs. When thats done, I start on the staplers, phones, and computer keyboards. Then I stand in the kitchen and lick the rims of all the clean coffee cups drying in the rack. I grab my coat and head out...
...Its freezing cold and windy. Waiting for Gary, I take my pen out of my pocket and put it in my mouth. This is it, my one shot at the candidate. I chew the pen, cracking the plastic shaft. Gary arrives, toddles up to the podium, and makes some brief remarks about Red China. As he steps away, I step toward him.
This is my son, I say, handing him a photograph. Can I have your autograph? Bauer gives me an odd look; I need to give him a little more. I talked his mother out of aborting him. Youre my hero, Mr. Bauer.
He looks at me with his little bug eyes, and breaks into a wide smile. Good for you, Gary says. Thats wonderful.
He takes the picture, and I pull the pen out of my mouth and hand it to him. Score! My bodily fluids flu bugs and all are all over his hand! When he tries to sign, no ink comes out. Gary looks up at the cameras and says, Looks like everything is frozen. He grabs a poster and scribbles on it to get the ink flowing, then signs the picture. He hands me my pen, and starts to walk toward his van. He stops to answer a reporters question, and I see him run a finger under his nose. Perfect.
I didnt need to lick all those doorknobs after all.
The firestorm over Stalking Gary Bauer
Salon readers lash Dan Savage or laugh with him.
JANUARY 29, 2000 10:00PM (UTC)
Last week Salon sent writer Dan Savage to Iowa to cover the presidential primary caucuses. While there, he came down with the flu. The story he filed a feverish, compelling and disturbing account of how candidate Gary Bauers crusade against gays drove him to try to infect Bauer with his flu was not what we had in mind.
Nevertheless, after reviewing the story carefully we decided to run it...
Virus fragments can show up in the lamebrain testing for weeks.
As I recall, POTUS and multiple WH persons have frequently said they were all tested almost every day.
I like how Trump is dying, and faking it at the same time.
Watching these people lose their minds is rather enjoyable.
You telling ME to pay attention???
Hopefully, you mean the dummies who wrote this piece of garbage.
RE: Remember that he was taking HCQ for a time.
Two weeks at most. That’s what I learned from my readings.
Our 75 year old POTUS beat the black death of the 21st century over a long weekend. Something doesn’t add up here.
I sense a disturbance in the force.
Business Insider, the leftist version of Moscow’s “Doctors Daily Journal and Disinformation Campaign” magazine. /sarc
He should just virtually debate Biden on Oct 12, and then take the video of Biden’s clumsily obvious attempts to solicit help from unseen handlers and use it in campaign commercials in purpling swing states like Arizona.
The headline says the WH refuses to say if he's been tested since May.
"The president is tested regularly," a White House spokesman said in an email.
Yet the article, in the last paragraph quotes the WH as saying that "Trump is tested regularly".
The headline is a lie.
