Trump Mocked for Signing Blank Paper in 'Staged' Hospital Photos | 22 Words

Just hours ago, the White House released two photographs of Donald Trump working into the night from his hospital - after being diagnosed with coronavirus.

Many people rejoiced upon seeing the photos, believing they show a healthy president who is getting stronger, and continuing to do his bit for the USA.

But thousands of others looked into the photos a little more, and noticed a few oddities - such as Trump seemingly just signing a blank piece of paper.

Keep scrolling to check the photos out.

On Friday, Donald Trump was taken to hospital.

According 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...

People 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: Getty

Because 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.

Trump 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...

And, 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: Getty

Biden suddenly lashed out at President Trump when he continued to speak over him.

While many have criticized Biden for his unprofessionalism...

Others have applauded the candidate, noting that he "said to Trump what they've been wanting to say for the last 4 years."

There were many eye-opening moments from the ninety-minute debate.

For example...

The president was grilled on the newly surfaced allegations regarding his income tax.

Asked 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...

But 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.

When 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.

The 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.

"His family we can talk about all night," Biden clapped back, adding that "it's hard to get any word in with this clown - excuse me, this person". The pair also clashed over Biden's now-deceased son, Beau, and his military service.

The insults continued to flow.

"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: Getty

Not 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: Getty

There was one moment that stood out amongst the rest.

Now, not everyone was too impressed...

With many finding the moment to be "unprofessional" on Biden's part.

However, on the other hand...

People have found a whole new level of respect for Biden, and have even called his words the "highlight" of the evening.

Because, as you may have already heard...

via: Getty

Biden actually told the president to "shut up."

Yep, it's something many dream of doing one day.

The moment came during the first segment of the debate on the topic of the Supreme Court and people were living for it, to say the least.

But now, news has come in that could put Trump's future leadership in jeopardy.

via: Getty

After 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...

Seventy-four-year-old President Trump is actually in the high-risk category.

The statistics speak for themselves.

via: Getty

According 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...

Which isn't at all good news for the President.

The First Lady's update on the situation gave some people hope.

via: Getty

She tweeted from her official FLOTUS account telling us all that she and her husband are both in "good health."

Here's the official post:

She wrote: "As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together."

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:

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."

The house minority leader also gave an update, saying that they had spoken to Trump over the phone and that he was upbeat and pleased for all of the prayers and well wishes from fans and supporters.

“Our president is strong and will beat the virus!"

Trump's expected to stay in hospital, regardless of his condition, for the next couple of days, so that they can monitor and keep a close eye on him.

Trump's physician gave an update on his condition yesterday morning.

Trump's physician gave the update on Trump's state during a press conference outside the hospital in Maryland.

Speaking to press, Conley explained that Trump is doing very well.

He began his speech, thanking all of the doctors, and sending thanks from the president to all those who have wished him well and prayed for him.

He then said that the president is doing 'very well'.

He added that Trump is in 'good spirits', and that he is not receiving oxygen and has not had a fever for the past 24 hours. As always though, the president is still being monitored 'very closely'.

Take a look at the speech below.

Trump himself was quoted saying that he feels he could walk out of the hospital right now. It's certainly positive news for the president.

Speculation continues to stir about the president's genuine condition.

And, presumably to prove that the president is doing as well as they say, the White House have released photos showing him working in the hospital.

They show Trump signing documents.

The photographs, taken by White House photographer Joyce N. Boghosian, show the president in the presidential suite of the hospital.

But many people pointed something out.

Trump wasn't wearing his tie, which he is normally always wearing, and many people pointed this out saying it's highly unusual for the president.

But Trump is apparently making 'significant progress'.

According to all updates from his physician and doctors working with Trump, he is making a lot of progress - and Trump claims that the experimental drug he is being treated with is the work of God.

More specifically, the president said:

[The treatment I am on are] are miracles from God. We have to confront problems. As a leader, you have to confront problems. There's never been a great leader that would have done that.

However.

After the photographs of Trump 'working' were released by the White House, many people took to social media to claim that it was all staged.

They purport to show Trump 'working into the night'.

But Jon Ostrower, editor-in-chief of aviation publication The Air Current, claims to have looked into the photos and learnt that they were took just ten minutes apart. He wrote:
The photos released by the WH tonight of the president working at Walter Reed were taken 10 minutes apart at 5:25:39 pm and 5:35:40 pm ET Saturday, according to the EXIF data embedded in both AP wire postings that were shared by the White House this evening.

Another thing people have noticed.

Is that one of the photos seems to simply show Trump signing a blank piece of paper. Not only has this been discovered by strangers on the Internet, but also by White House reporter Andrew Feinberg, leading to many people claiming the photos are entirely staged.

People have been posting to Twitter.

One person wrote:
That’s the only kind of ‘work’ he knows how to do. And in his mind, as long as he makes it look like he’s working and his base believes it, that’s every bit as good, if not better, than actually doing something. We’re living through the reality TV presidency.
Another said:
He was a reality TV star. As far as he’s concerned, he just had to shoot a couple of promos for the ‘look presidential’ bit he performs.

Others are still furious he isn't wearing a mask in the photos.

Another person explained:
He's sitting in a conference room I can only assume is going to be used by doctors, not wearing a mask. I'm sure the medical staff will appreciate being exposed to his infected breathing when they sit down to use this room.

We wish the President and the First Lady a speedy recovery.

Get well soon.
