During a campaign rally in Wisconsin, President Donald Trump's usual outspoken speech style went down an odd rabbit hole ending with the President saying he could kiss all the "big powerful men" in attendance as a demonstration of his virus immunity.
Trump once again insinuates that Gold Star families gave him Covid, then says, "I got better fast. I can now jump into the audience and give you all a big kiss. The women and the men. I'll kiss those big powerful men down there." pic.twitter.com/z9wNo4jDyT

“Trump says he's ready to kiss 'big powerful men' to prove he's immune to Covid-19"?
How does kissing anyone prove he is immune to anything? Does he mean kiss symptomatically ill somebodies?
And why is he now into 'big powerful men'?
Even for Trump this is a strange comment! https://t.co/9iFNSSL8Ru

I'm not a fan of most of Trump's rally material, but this whole “kissing powerful men" bit is just . . Bizarre

The dismissive attitude and attempt at humor didn't garner many laughs however, as the United States is still in the midst of the pandemic.
There have been approximately 220,000 deaths due to the pandemic as Trump and the GOP continues to fight to remove the Affordable Care Act which allows millions of Americans to receive healthcare.
Over a million in taxpayer dollars went to paying for Trump's own virus recovery.
No thank you Donald. The Secret Service doesn't need or want kisses from you.
Let's remember they don't get hazard pay

Trump coming out wasn't on my 2020 bingo card 😕

He is immune to compassion, empathy, integrity, intelligence, decency, lawfulness, religion, kindness, but no, I don't even almost believe he is immune to COVID-19.

More importantly, Trump grudgingly comes out of the closet. We want to send him back.

Grandma, please come get Grandpa. We know he's sick but he's embarrassing us all and is getting worse every day. Can we get him some mental health help? After all, he does have the nuclear codes and could end all life on Earth.

I guess that first night he and Lyndsey went to Mar A Lago was more than they both imagined.

He's going to grab them by the dick. When you're a star, they let you do it.

Lindsey Graham is smiling right now.

A grand total of zero people volunteered for the kiss.
