On Sunday, CNN’s chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta accused White House physician Dr. Sean Conley of “purposely misleading” the public about the President Donald Trump's condition concerning his COVID-19 diagnosis.
He added that the Trump administration is "hiding things.”
CNN anchor Jake Tapper said, “Some interesting comments from Commander Conley, who before this episode had an impeccable reputation. He was asked why he didn’t give all the information yesterday, and he said he was trying to, I’m quoting, trying to reflect the upbeat attitude of the team and not give any information that would steer the course of his illness. Is that what a physician is supposed to do?”
Gupta replied, “No. I mean, you’ve got to be honest. You’ve got to be transparent—all these details matter. I mean, he is out and coming out to brief the public about the president. That’s the briefing that’s happening. If you are going to do that, then you have to be absolutely honest. And it wasn’t just sort of conveying an upbeat attitude. He was — it was purposely misleading yesterday about a very basic issue, which is whether or not the president had been on supplemental oxygen is one of those issues. That’s important, Jake, because when you look at patients the way that doctors approach this, we know his age, we know his pre-existing risk factors, you can immediately start to assess his risk as more data comes in that risk sort of stratification changes. If he required oxygen, that definitely indicates that there was some impacts, significant impact on his lungs, and that puts him on a different trajectory.”
Tapper said, “I am the son of a doctor and a nurse, and I understand the inclination in the public to believe doctors. We want to believe doctors. We also have to note there is a long and ugly history in this country of presidents not being honest about their health with the American people and doctors being used as part of that cover-up. One hundred years ago, it was Woodrow Wilson, FDR, John F. Kennedy, Ronald Reagan, and on and on and on. It’s the reason when I interviewed Joe Biden, made him give a pledge, would he always be upfront about all aspects of his health in real time. We’re not getting that from Donald Trump and his team right now. We are not getting all of the facts. Why?”
Gupta retorted, “Well you know I’d have to say that they are hiding things, Jake. I mean, I hate to say it.”
Here is Gupta stating it another time as well:
“I think the President is sicker than the doctors are letting on,” said Sanjay Gupta today on CNN.
So that’s where we’re at. Irresponsible speculation from DOCTOR SANJAY GUPTA about what he “thinks”… pic.twitter.com/xQuzMUUjE9

Founder of Proud Boys Delivers AMAZING Announcement During Interview
If former Vice President Joe Biden isn't careful about what he's doing, he's going to be broke very soon. What I mean by that is that he's going to have some serious lawsuits against him that will cost him a lot of money.
Toward the end of September, Lin Wood, who is the attorney representing Kyle Rittenhouse, threatened a defamation lawsuit against Biden for attacking his client after a campaign ad he had which associated Rittenhouse with "white supremacists". He gave Biden a warning to remove the ad...yet to this day, it stands.
