Updating Our Cartoon

By Mr. Schnell

Originally Trump was asymptomatic. We had to take the “A” out of “Asymptomatic Carrier” in our original cartoon and make it read “SYMPTOMATIC CARRIER” to stay current with news updates. (Also, Donnie has been upgraded to the “Super Spreader” category and requires strict isolation and quarantine.)

As more MISINFORMATION is reported we here at Mr. Schnell Headquarters are hearing that Dr. Sean P. Conley, DO is talking of releasing Corona Virus Vector and Covid 19 Super Spreader Don the Con-Trump-Tagious back into circulation soon. Back to the White House? Back to Trump Tower? Back to isolate with Melania? Back to the Bunker? Back to infect more White House staffers and secret service agents? Specifics at this time are vague and contradictory (as always in Trumpland) but stay tuned for further misinformation as it becomes available.

Donnie is on decadron (dexamethasone). Usually you have to wean that corticosteroid off gently once it’s therapeutic regimen is completed. That takes about ten to fourteen days from start of therapy to finish. A Decadron buzz is some nice shit. It makes you feel like superman for awhile. It don’t last though. Wears off after a short while! In his most recent edited video post little Donnie appeared more chipper (minus edited out huffing and puffing) which I expected from what my front line nursing colleagues have reported to me when we discussed their experiences caring for sick CoVid-19 patients. Donnie must be liking that decadron high!!! All smiles. Hard at work signing blank sheets of paper with his trusty fine point Sharpie while confidentially infecting his health care team. Oh wait … my mistake … paper bag masks. No germs spreading here. No “infecting”. Two birds with one stone: Wearing a mask barrier and patient/staff confidentiality. Nice!

Donnie will also be on a therapeutic regimen of the antiviral drug Remdesivir. All I know is Remdesivir is one cool ass name. Wonder who thought that up?

And let us not forget “compassionate use” of Regeneron’s polyclonal antibody infusion and transfusion of immunity laden plasma donated by covid survivors (some of whom were African America?). Big guns for a flu….no!

There is the art of medicine and the science of medicine: and then there is “SHOT GUN THERAPY” medicine (as you see here). No expense spared and everyone gets a slice of the pie. (Of course if donnie were running the show he’d have figured out a way to cheat the others and get all of the pie. Not the case. Sucks being the experimental guinea pig! It is what it is!)

We go astray. Back on topic: Donnie’s Early Discharge (while being the most watched super spreader of Covid 19 on earth).

I am going out on a limb here folks. Discharge ain’t gonna happen … at least not by Monday. Little donnie needs in hospital strict quarantine, monitor for side effects, and treatment for symptoms STAT! It is medically prudent and the only way to avoid a potential negligence accusation. Prominent medical reputations are at stake.

Also important is donnie’s personal safety and protection. He is at a military hospital (finest social medicine in the United States) with “federal” police officers (similar to those sent to terrorize Portland Oregon). Donnie couldn’t ask for more or be in more personally preferred hands …

That about raps it up for now. Take care out there in Donald’s violent America. Stay safe, isolate, avoid the Proud Albino Boys, wash your hands, wear a mask when out and about, and thanks for paying Donnie and Melania’s medical bills.

Mr. Schnell out.

StarvingCartoonist is a former ICU nurse that has worked at numerous civilian, military, and veteran Intensive Care Units across the country for better than three decades but has been sketching, drawing, and cartooning since he first picked up a crayon in kindergarten. Dabbled with political cartooning, writing, and general illustrations but the bread and butter came from health care. Recently left professional nursing to concentrate on camping, hiking, nature, the outdoors, trees, trails, and peace of mind. Love a campfire; rather watch it than TV. Avoid bureaucracy, career ladders, ladder climbers, and hero worship at all cost. Evenings spent with a good book, reading until the book smacks my nose when I doze off. Generally up at sun rise, listen to the mourning doves, put the coffee on, and play it by ear the rest of the day.
