1. Looking at the USA Today pics it makes even less sense that Melanie stayed home

She’s got her own suit

But you’re right, the pics are way nicer than the background

Clarification: The images in this gallery are from 2007 of the VIP suite at the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center, which closed in 2011. That is not the same facility as the current Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, which replaced the former Walter Reed in 2011.

The virus must have affected his brain.
There must be a bunch of uppers in his protocol meds.

That's how I would do it so as not to disturb the president in his Presidential Suite by bringing in lights, reflectors, stringing cables, etc... Maybe it's a hospital conference room dressed up to look more official.

Those knobs behind him almost look like cabinets. Really, you'd just need the binder, the table, the flags. Trump could be kneeling, or standing. (I'm just pointing out how adaptable reality is to pulling off something like this. It's not hard.)

10. Why is he still wearing his suit coat ? I know about appearance but cuff links & a suit coat don't

fit the occasion. I'm sure he doesn't want to wear a hospital gown, but a PJ top would look more believable. Even if it was silk!

With all his lies, it's hard to believe this video wasn't produced, cut, & spliced to get the image they want.

14. Agreed. His voice is also weak and hoarse. At 1:05 you can see what looks like

GI distress. He's not feeling well at all.
