The week since President Trump tweeted that he and the first lady tested positive for COVID-19, the internet has been flooded with hot takes and theories of what this could mean for the country’s leadership. In a new video, YouTube’s Doctor Mike breaks down some of the false and inaccurate claims he has seen online, stating that he declined a series of invitations to discuss Trump’s diagnosis on television because he believed it was unethical to speculate on the health of someone who was not his patient when information was not available.
Initially, Mike criticized the White House news regarding Trump̵
He adds that the combination of various drugs and supplements that Trump gave at Walter Reed Medical Center “makes no scientific sense,” and that some of the drugs listed have not yet been approved by the FDA, while others should supposedly be reserved for critical cases. “Either the president was sicker than they would allow, or the president was getting a lot of treatments prematurely.”
Mike goes on to elaborate on the many tweets of the White House Doctor Sean Conley not being a doctor and clarifying that Conley as a DO (Doctor of Osteopathy) has the same number of years of medical school and has completed the residency completed the same board certification exams as an MD. He points out that Joe Biden is the personal doctor also one DO, claiming that derogatory comments on Conley’s qualifications are only used to disparage the highly skilled DOs who have treated patients throughout the pandemic.
“These are women and men who put their lives at the front,” he says. “We shouldn’t judge doctors by the letters by their name, but by their bedside nature, their ability to heal patients, their ability to fight misinformation and connect with other people.”

He also criticizes the video released by the president in which he told people “not to be afraid of COVID” and not to let the virus “dominate” their lives. “Well, President Trump, if we’re being honest here, over 200,000 Americans have lost their lives, whoever Not hit it to downplay it so is inaccurate and unfair, “he says.
Mike’s concern is that Trump’s “Don’t be afraid” message will lead people to become complacent about their safety and hygiene habits, with hand washing, masking, and social distancing remain as important as ever. Instead, he advises a mantra of “stay vigilant, not fearful” and encourages people to keep the public safety practices developed over the past six months as we approach autumn.
