Former President Donald Trump has been permanently kicked out of the actor’s union for his role in the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol, but word out of D.C. is Donald is actually a very good actor, and his most recent role is worthy of an Oscar nomination.

According to a new report by the New York Times, when Trump contracted COVID-19 in October, he deftly played the role of someone much healthier than he actually was.

The report said Trump was much more seriously sick than what the public was told at the time.

The report said Trump had “extremely depressed blood oxygen levels at one point and a lung problem associated with pneumonia caused by the coronavirus.”  The newspaper got their info from four people who were familiar with the former President’s condition.

The story gets even more dramatic, saying Trump’s condition was so poor that “officials believed he would be put on a ventilator” before being transported to Walter Reed National Military Center from the White House.

His diagnosis was roughly a month before the Presidential Election in November, and the Times report said Trump’s medical team made a conscious effort to downplay the severity of his condition so the public wouldn’t know how serious it actually was.

He was able to leave the hospital after spending just three days there.  It was well documented that doctors gave Trump experimental treatments that seemed to work quite well.
