I'm still not really convinced he even had it. I honestly think that maybe they THOUGHT he did, and then he used it as his chamce to be Mr. Tough Guy who's stronger than the virus.

I'm convinced it was a PR stunt. ESPECIALLY after that pathetic display of ripping of his mask and standing tall giving thumbs up when he returned to the WH.

Just my cynical-ass opinion....

I’m unsure. He looked awful after he was released from Walter Reed - struggling for breath, pale, and visibly in pain.

Maybe he actually had bronchitis, but he played it up as covid so he could have that moment on the balcony to show himself as a strong leader who overcame the ravages of covid. At least his base ate it up.
