Despite being apparently unconnected to Trump’s announcement that he had contracted coronavirus, the Washington Post was forced to delete a tweet that stated, “Opinion: Imagine what it will be like to never have to think about Trump again.”
Trump tweeted that he and Melania had tested positive for COVID-19 last night, prompting a wave of gloating and celebration from leftists and the media.
39 minutes later, the Washington Post tweeted a link to the story, with many believing it to be a reaction to the news.
However, the column had been posted to WaPo’s website earlier on Thursday.
“If you are like me and you watched Tuesday’s debate with a voice in your head screaming make it stop, take heart: We have the power to do just that,” wrote Eugene Robinson. “We can evict President Trump from the territory he has forcibly seized in our minds. We can — we must — vote him out of our thoughts.”
Around an hour after Trump revealed he had been diagnosed with coronavirus, Washington Post deleted the tweet.
