Trump’s estranged niece, Mary Trump, has reacted to Trump’s hospitalization for covid-19 by alleging the US President and his family have always viewed illness as “a display of unforgivable weakness.”

 

Mary Trump who is suing the family for money and recently wrote a new book criticizing her uncle and her family, told NPR’s Michel Martin that illness was seen as “unacceptable” by Donald Trump and his father, Fred Trump. “Which sounds incredibly cruel, but happens to be true.”

According to Mary, whose father Fred Trump Jr died of alcoholism, her family had a very toxic dynamic where they saw illness as a form of weakness.

There have been more than 7 million cases of coronavirus in the U.S. and more than 200,000 people have died and Mary feels her family’s thinking pattern is the reason why so many people in the country have died.

“That’s why [the U.S. is] in the horrible place we’re in, because he cannot admit to the weakness of being ill or of other people being ill,” Mary Trump says.

“In my family [it] was treated like a moral failing,” she says.

“First of all, what’s fascinating is I had no idea that my great-grandfather had died during the 1918 flu pandemic from the flu until I read about it somewhere a couple of years ago. And Donald also seems to have forgotten about that, which is incredible, considering it’s a pretty fascinating historical detail in the family.”

“But, you know, it depended on who it was. And it was also driven by the fact that my grandfather was never sick. Ever.”
“Until in the late ’80s, he had a tumor removed, but then he was completely fine. And then many years later when he was suffering from Alzheimer’s, he had a hip replacement but wasn’t really aware of much of what was going on.”

S”o between that and my grandfather’s adherence to Norman Vincent Peale’s power of positive thinking, which he took to such an extreme level that it was toxic because it left no room for expressions of what he considered negativity of any kind, you know, sadness, despair, being physically ill.”

“So my grandmother, with her osteoporosis, would come home from the hospital and need more care and physical therapy. And my grandfather was unable to tolerate it. You know, he’d be in the room with her. And as soon as she started showing that she was in physical pain, he would say “everything’s great, right. Everything’s great.” And he’d leave the room.”

“With my dad, it was worse, as you can imagine, because the alcoholism was considered his fault.”

 

When she was asked by NPR if she has heard anything through her family about Trump’s medical care since he contracted Covid-19, she replied;

“I have not and unfortunately, it seems like we can’t exactly rely upon the information we’re getting directly from the medical team at Walter Reed, which is unfortunate because we really do need as much accurate information as possible in a case like this.”

OAP Toolz recounts her experience after she, her husband and almost everyone in their home tested positive for COVID19

OAP Tolu Demuren aka Toolz took to her Twitter handle to reveal that she, her hubby, Captain Tunde Demuren, and almost everyone in their home recently tested positive for the novel Coronavirus.

 

In a Twitter thread, Toolz revealed that her greatest worries were her children who were fortunately not affected by the virus. Thankfully, she, her hubby, and everyone else have been retested after they were treated and the new test results came back negative.

 

Her tweets read

”Feeling super thankful to God today! This time last month, we were going through a very scary period! Almost everyone in our house (including myself) tested positive for Covid-19.

I was just about to return to work after my maternity, and it all started with Captain complaining of ‘malaria-like’ symptoms. He had them for a few days, and didn’t seem to get any better…so we ended up taking him to hospital.

He had taken a Covid-19 test a few days before which was negative, so I thought it was a bad case of malaria. He was admitted with malaria and a bacterial infection we were told. After being given intravenous antibiotics and other meds he still wasn’t getting better.

I decided to move him to a different hospital, and they tested again, and he ‘blew up’ the test according to the doctor. My body went cold, and my first thought was ‘OMG the babies!!’. Then a short while later, I thought about myself. I did a rapid test, and it was positive.

Neither of us initially had the common symptoms- no coughing, no breathing issues…although I later lost my smell and taste. Captain was in hospital for a week and this was around the time of the Lekki shooting, so I was doubly terrified.

My main fear was the babies…especially our youngest son as he was just about 3 months old. We didn’t test them, but I was certain they had Covid too as we literally kiss and cuddle our boys every day. The doctor assured us that they wouldn’t be affected.

Thank God the doctor was right, other than a sneeze here & there, our babies were perfectly fine. I was generally ok too, just scared. Once you get that positive result, you get all these random symptoms you didn’t have before. My back would hurt…I’d be like hmmm corona oo

The weirdest thing was the taste and smell thing. Everything Captain had tasted bad, he’s a foodie so that was strange. One of my super powers is my sense of smell…and it just gradually faded. I actually put a bottle of bleach under my nose one day and…nothing.

I kept waiting to fall ill, and it didn’t happen. I started thinking I had indaboski blood, but then I had 2 days where I felt like I had the worst hangover in the world, then there was some fatigue, but I was generally ok.

Captain on the other hand felt super rundown, couldn’t keep food down, had cramping all over and a bunch of other symptoms. After a week, he came back home, and we finished our isolation period together.

After 2 weeks we all retested and were all thankfully Negative. Thanks to Almighty God for seeing us through, a big thank you to the doctors that looked after us… especially Dr Majekodunmi of Eurocare for the constant reassurance, and for taking my a million and one calls

I’m super thankful I didn’t get it while I was pregnant. Imagine I travelled to have my baby, came back, did a 7 covid tests, and it was the 8th that was positive. The craziest thing was that a week before I legit told someone that there’s Covid in Lagos anymore. Silly me”

Psychic who predicted Covid-19 pandemic and Trump’s defeat warns pandemic ‘will last until 2022’

A self-proclaimed psychic and regression therapist has warned that the effects of the coronavirus pandemic could last until 2022.

 

Nicolas Aujula has claimed he foresaw the Covid-19 pandemic and has offered a mixed prediction for the next year over the continued fight against the virus.

 

The 35-year-old from London claims he receives his predictions from visions that are at times “very literal”, while on other occasions can be “symbolic”, and dreamlike and more open to interpretation.

 

Nicolas claims he foresaw global protests, an “influenza” disaster, and even the fall of Donald Trump from office as US President before 2020 began.

 

Speaking to The Mirror, Nicolas has delved into the future again to suggest what he thinks will happen to the coronavirus pandemic in the coming year.

He told the publication: “One thing people have asked me about a lot this year is the coronavirus.

 

“I have visions of it plateauing after the new year and infection rates being right down to the point where they are under control by the spring.”

 

However, he added a caveat, stating: “But, I predict that the panic and restrictions around the virus will go on until 2022.”

Nicolas claims he had an “overwhelming” out of body experience when he was 17-years-old in which he saw all of his past lives, which included being an Egyptian queen, a maid, a deer, a lion, and even an extraterrestrial from another galaxy.

While he says he had experienced psychic powers since he was a child, it was this vision during his later teenage years that prompted him to abandon plans to study economics and history at university and instead train as a past life regression therapist.

 

Nicolas has revealed how he foresaw the disasters of 2020 as long as two years ago.

 

He explained: “Back in 2018, the word influenza kept coming to me. It stuck in my mind, as it’s not a word I’d use. If I was talking in everyday life, I would just say flu.

“I saw it as a global disaster, linked to meat or livestock.

 

“The Covid-19 pandemic has been compared to the Spanish flu outbreak, hence the word influenza and some people think it originated at a wildlife market in Wuhan, China.

 

“I also envisioned the defeat of Donald Trump. The US election was obviously very neck-and-neck, so it was surreal seeing my vision come true when Joe Biden finally took the lead.”

 

He has also claimed to have predicted Black Lives Matter protests, Ariana Grande’s 2020 Grammy Awards dress, and health services around the world being under strain.
