“It’s a little late, schmuck” political activist and Filmmaker Rob Reiner tweeted in response to a video released by President Donald Trump from Walter Reed hospital earlier in the day.
In a video message to the American people regarding his battle with coronavirus, Pres. Trump said that his first-hand experience with COVID-19 has been an educational experience, CNSNews.com reports:
In a video posted to Twitter on Sunday afternoon, President Trump told Americans he’s “learned a lot about COVID…by really going to school.”
“This is the real school. This isn’t the let's-read-the-book school. And I get it, and I understand it. And it's a very interesting thing…”
In response to the video, Reiner accused the president of waiting until he contracted the virus - and 210,000 people had died - before bothering to learn about COVID-19:
“You learned a lot about Covid? Really? It’s only real if it happens to you? 210,000 people are dead!! It’s a little late, schmuck!”
On Saturday, Reiner tweeted that Trump’s illness is an “’I told you so’ moment”:
“You never want anyone to get sick, but if ever there was an ‘I told you so’ moment, this is it.”
