Woodrow Wilson Denied Being Ill Will Influenza
What Happened When Woodrow Wilson Came Down With the 1918 Flu? https://t.co/FYUxeMLGaX— Carol Duff (@CarolDuff18) October 3, 2020
Health Editor’s Note: The influenza pandemic in 1918 killed about 675,000 Americans in the 15 months that it raged. There was another president who ignored the global health crisis by offering ‘no leadership or guidance’ during that pandemic. His name is Woodrow Wilson so Trump must be patterning his responses/lack of responses to the COVID-19 pandemic after Wilson’s. Monkey see, Monkey do.
Wilson’s focus, we are told, was the Great War. Trump’s focus, we can clearly see, is the presidential election of November. Both of these ‘leaders’ also used the excuse that knowing the exact nature of the pandemic would bring down the nation’s morale. Give us a break!
Wilson also had people of his inner circle, including his personal secretary, many Secret Service members, and oldest daughter contract the influenza. Wilson contracted his influenza after arriving in Paris for the peace talks and was diagnosed and became very, very ill. This illness was denied and downplayed and there was an actual statement made by the the Associated Press, that Wilson did NOT have influenza. During his influenza attack Wilson even displayed some uncharacteristic mental changes during this time and showed severe disorientation and according to Chief Usher Irwin Hoover was never the same again. That and the fact that the secret, hidden stroke Wilson had several months later left his so debilitated that his wife took over the presidency. Does this have a familiar ring? Remember Ronald Reagan and how his wife Nancy took over his thought processes?
We currently have Trump admitting to testing positive for COVID-19 and even being admitted to Walter Reed. Trump is using the current pandemic to serve his needs in announcing that he has contracted coronavirus. Why does he announce he has COVID-19, a virus he did not want Americans to know the veracity of? Or so he says….. What is Trump covering up?. What does he not want us to see?….Carol
