Seth Meyers and CNN take closer looks at Trump exposing 500 people to COVID last year, a pandemic 'update'

The Omicron variant is spreading, so it's the how pandemic topic on serious news, but the late-night talk show hosts were more interested in old news, former President Trump's COVID diagnosis last year. I begin with Seth Meyers Trump's Secret Positive COVID Test; GOP's Omicron Conspiracy Theories: A Closer Look.

Seth takes a closer look at Trump secretly testing positive for COVID before coming into contact with more than 500 people, including President Biden at their first debate, while Republicans and Fox News suggest the new coronavirus variant is a liberal hoax.
I wish I could say I am surprised by this, but I'm not. It's totally on brand for the former guy. Also, I'm not surprised by the conspiracy theories about Omicron. It's as if they watched Desi Lydic's sketch at the end of Trevor Noah and 'The Daily Show' explain why gas prices are so high and took it seriously. Hey, it's satire not news!

CNN had a more serious reaction to the story in 'Unbelievable': Revelation about Trump's condition angers Haberman.

In his new memoir, former Trump Chief of Staff Mark Meadows says the President's blood oxygen levels reached dangerously low levels during his 2020 bout with Covid-19.
That's scary, not funny.
