President Donald Trump has tested negative for the coronavirus, according to a White House statement. However, members of the media pounced when the details of the report mentioned the President’s white blood cells.
“Oh, I see,” quipped CNN’s Jim Acosta to the President. “Can Americans assume that your white blood cells are white as a type of wink to the Ku Klux Klan?!” he asked Trump.
But the President wasn’t having any of it.
“Listen, first of all you are fake news. But secondly, no. My white blood cells are tremendous just the way they are. Maybe the best, some say,” Trump informed.
“But Mr. President,” Acosta snapped back. “There are literally hundreds of colors. Seems awful suspicious that your white blood cells are white. Couldn’t they have been red, or gold or green? Why white?”
“Ok. Enough of him. Thank you all for coming.” Trump abruptly ended the press conference. Update: Trump has asked the nation’s top medical professionals to drop everything and look into changing his white blood cells into gold.
