As I'm sure you are all well aware by now, the President of the United States has been diagnosed with coronavirus.
While most big names are wishing Trump a speedy recovery, SNL, who enjoyed their premiere last night, wasted no time in savagely mocking the president.
Honestly, there wasn't just one, or two comments about Trump's COVID diagnosis, but many brutal remarks.
Keep scrolling to check it out.
On Friday, Donald Trump was taken to hospital.
via: TwitterAccording to The Washington Post, "Trump was struggling with a low-grade fever, a cough, and nasal congestion, among other symptoms." His doctor later spoke out giving an update on his condition.
Since the news broke that Donald and Melania Trump have tested positive for coronavirus...
via: GettyPeople have had a lot to say. Of course, some have been digging up the past, while others have been sending him well wishes. But now SNL have mocked Trump harder than anyone else.
But there's actually a huge concern surrounding the president and his most recent diagnosis...
via: GettyBecause according to experts, while he is doing well, his risk of death remains high.
Now, it was only a few days ago that Trump took part in the first presidential debate.
via: GettyTrump V Biden was never going to be a civilized affair, but the scenes that unfolded last night were nothing short of brutal.
Tensions between the candidates have been bubbling for some time now...
via: GettyAnd, earlier in the week, it seemed that their mutual feelings of resentment finally reached a boiling point.
And, in a moment many weren't expecting...
via: GettyBiden suddenly lashed out at President Trump when he continued to speak over him.
While many have criticized Biden for his unprofessionalism...
@MSNBC Finally someone said to Trump what I’ve wanted to say to him for the last four years!— Doremus Jessup (@Doremus Jessup)1601429358.0
There were many eye-opening moments from the ninety-minute debate.
via: GettyFor example...
The president was grilled on the newly surfaced allegations regarding his income tax.
via: GettyAsked if it was true that he paid just $750 in income tax in 2016, as reported by The New York Times last week, Trump said, without hesitation: "I paid millions of dollars in taxes, of income tax." Biden used this opportunity to ask for evidence of these tax payments, adding that Trump "takes advantage of the tax code."
Trump was also asked to condemn white supremacist groups...
via: GettyBut instead chose to focus on the left. He said: "Sure I'm willing to do that, but almost everything I see is from the left-wing. I'm willing to do anything. I want to see peace." And, when asked to give this group of people a name, he responded with "Proud Boys." Proud Boys, a neo-Nazi organization, appeared to use Trump's "stand back, stand by" call in a new logo posted on Telegram shortly after the debate.
The president did provide some good news with regards to a coronavirus vaccine, however.
via: GettyWhen Biden pointed out that 200,000 Americans have died during the pandemic as a result of the President's "lack of plan", Trump retaliated by insisting that "millions would have died if Biden was in charge." He then added that the US is "weeks away" from a vaccine, and his administration had done a "great job."
Biden's son, Hunter, was then dragged back into the firing line.
via: GettyThe President brought up Biden's son, claiming the mayor of Moscow's wife gave him millions of dollars and raising questions over his links with Ukraine. He also mentioned Hunter's drug problems.
Clearly, his words about Hunter hit a nerve with Biden.
Beau Biden was not a loser. https://t.co/hwzlZrjh75— Joe Biden (@Joe Biden)1601432460.0
The insults continued to flow.
via: Getty"Everything he's saying here is simply a lie, everybody knows he's a liar," Biden said during an exchange about healthcare. He also called Trump "the worst president this country has ever had."
And, of course, President Trump didn't take them quietly.
via: GettyNot to be outdone, Trump got in plenty of digs as well, firing at his opponent: "There's nothing smart about you Joe. Forty-seven years, you've done nothing."
But, out of their many valiant attempts to slander one another...
via: GettyThere was one moment that stood out amongst the rest.
Now, not everyone was too impressed...
@chrislhayes @NicolleDWallace Yes that made me cringe! So unprofessional...where was the question that @JoeBiden was going to like?— Aleta Devaney (@Aleta Devaney)1601435113.0
However, on the other hand...
@kurtbardella @JoeBiden @realDonaldTrump I apologize. I don't know the question. Just hearing Joe say those words made my fukin night.— CEH (@CEH)1601442062.0
Because, as you may have already heard...
via: GettyBiden actually told the president to "shut up."
Yep, it's something many dream of doing one day.

But now, news has come in that could put Trump's future leadership in jeopardy.
via: GettyAfter it was confirmed that the President and his First Lady had been infected with the virus.
Trump tweeted this on Friday...It has also been confirmed that the president has mild symptoms of the virus too.

But on the other hand, lots of angry and spiteful messages have been thrown at the pair following their diagnosis.

Even though the virus has a fairly steady survival rate...
via: GettySeventy-four-year-old President Trump is actually in the high-risk category.
The statistics speak for themselves.
via: GettyAccording to CDC statistics, patients between the ages of sixty-five and seventy-four are 5 times more likely to be hospitalized with COVID-19 than someone aged eighteen to twenty-nine.
This means that patients of Trump's age have ninety times greater chance of death than others...
via: GettyWhich isn't at all good news for the President.
The First Lady's update on the situation gave some people hope.
via: GettyShe tweeted from her official FLOTUS account telling us all that she and her husband are both in "good health."
Here's the official post:
As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19.… https://t.co/lwtgNuHAR1— Melania Trump (@Melania Trump)1601616449.0
In the aftermath of being admitted to hospital, Trump himself tweeted about his condition.The president was keen to keep his followers up to date on his recovery from the deadly virus.
He shared one tweet.In which he claimed that himself and the First Lady are doing well.
More specifically Trump wrote:
@realDonaldTrump We love you! Get well soon✨ From Japan👍— 🇯🇵にこ姉🇺🇸 (@🇯🇵にこ姉🇺🇸)1601703729.0
Going welI, I think! Thank you to all. LOVE!!!
People are delighted that the president is doing well.And the tweet racked up millions of likes.
There are countless comments too.With many wishing Trump all the best, and others wishing him quite the opposite.
But if you didn't believe Trump's tweet.His doctor also spoke out claiming that the president was doing well.
The doctor, Navy Commander Sean P. Conley, initially said:
This evening I am happy to report that the president is doing very well.He added that the president is 'resting comfortably'.
"He is not requiring any supplemental oxygen."

But while most are wishing the president well.SNL, who enjoyed their premiere last night, mocked Trump for his coronavirus diagnosis.
They really didn't hold back.In one line, they said:
A lot of people are saying there’s nothing funny about Trump being hospitalized for coronavirus ... those people are obviously wrong.
With Alec Baldwin starring as Trump and Jim Carey as Biden they wasted no time before roasting the president.When asked:
Did you take the COVID test you promised to take in advance?Baldwin, as Trump, responded:
Absolutely, scouts honor. The China virus is a hoax – and saying that will probably come back to haunt me later this week.
SNL tonight‼️✊🏻😁😁😁💕 https://t.co/AKwyqTkyaJ— 🐲 EGG 🐲 (@🐲 EGG 🐲)1601789553.0
Imagine if science and karma could somehow team up to send us a message about how dangerous this virus could be. I'm not saying I want it to happen, but just imagine it did.'Trump' also pulled out his face-mask, revealing that it was actually a pair of sheer panties.
As if that wasn't enough, Chris Rock also roasted Trump.
Chris Rock's monologue from tonight's SNL is some of what the world needs right now https://t.co/Ah0RGp2Aip— Mr. Lee 🌱 (@Mr. Lee 🌱)1601796761.0
President Trump is in the hospital due to COVID, and my heart goes out to COVID.Is it too much too soon?
We wish the President and the First Lady a speedy recovery.
