During one bizarre moment in a typical MAGA superspreader rally, Donald Trump interviewed his supporters to find out who among them was infected with COVID-19.
When a terrifying number of people cheered in the crowd to signal they had the virus, Trump congratulated them, saying they were now immune.
"Who had it?" Said Trump, waiting for a reaction from his crowd in Pennsylvania. “Yes, a lot of people. Many people. You're the people I want to say hello to because you're immune right now. "

For anyone struggling to recover from the virus, I feel your pain because I felt your pain. And we will fight this virus together and for those – who had it? Who had it here? Who had it? Yes, a lot of people. Many people. You are the people I want to say hello to because you are immune right now. You're immune right now. Well that's what they say. They had to admit it because I had it. So they used to say good if you have it you're immune for life, right? Once I have it, they'll give you four months. If it's someone other than me, you're immune for life.
The president tells another dangerous lie
Once again the president is lying about this virus that could kill more Americans.
As Rachel Maddow of MSNBC pointed out on Tuesday evening, several people were re-infected with COVID-19 after receiving them once. In some cases, their second infection is worse or even fatal.

Donald Trump's behavior following his COVID-19 diagnosis and hospitalization has shown that he learned nothing about this virus even after being infected with this virus.
