President Donald Trump has not stopped tweeting since he got back to the White House on Monday, October 5, after his brief hospitalization at the Walter Reed Medical Center following his COVID-19 diagnosis last week.

The frequency of his tweets as well as retweets - which spanned multiple topical issues as well as attacks against his opponents - was such that many of the social media users wondered if a cocktail of steroids and drugs that the POTUS had been administered as a treatment of the virus was influencing his behavior and making him act like the rapper Kanye West, who is known for unleashing his stream of consciousness on Twitter from time to time.

To give one a taste of the range of Trump's tweets, one said, "If I am sent a Stand Alone Bill for Stimulus Checks ($1,200), they will go out to our great people IMMEDIATELY. I am ready to sign right now. Are you listening Nancy? @MarkMeadows @senatemajldr @kevinomccarthy @SpeakerPelosi @SenSchumer" while another read, "Wear your mask in the “beauty” parlor, Nancy!" He jumped to the topic of coronavirus vaccination next, writing, "New FDA Rules make it more difficult for them to speed up vaccines for approval before Election Day. Just another political hit job! @SteveFDA" Then he completely changed direction and ventured dangerously close to launching a conspiracy theory. "I have fully authorized the total Declassification of any & all documents pertaining to the single greatest political CRIME in American History, the Russia Hoax. Likewise, the Hillary Clinton Email Scandal. No redactions!" he wrote in a tweet.

Reeling from having to keep up with the president's tweets as part of their job, multiple journalists from various news outlets started to point out the bizarreness of the frequency at which Trump was tweeting. Vox reporter Aaron Rupar wrote, "Trump has posted 42 tweets or retweets in the last two hours." Daily Beast reporter Sam Stein tweeted, "There is a surprisingly little amount of reaction to the remarkable tweet storm the president of the United States has been on for the past few hours." MSNBC news anchor Lawrence O'Donnell mocked, "Tonight @realDonaldTrump is tweeting like a man on steroids who will be a criminal defendant on the afternoon of January 20." Screenwriter Amy Holden Jones also echoed O'Donnell's thoughts, writing, "Steroids can induce mania. And clearly, that has happened. We won't know how he really is doing until he stops the steroids."

Other reactions from social media users followed. "He probably had another shot of steroids, euphoria is setting in only to be met without the downward spiral of withdrawal. Donald will be unbearable when he gets to the part of Covid where his hair falls out in clumps. Shoulda, woulda, coulda worn a MASK" one wrote, while another commented, "Christ. I’m so sick of being in abusive relationship with the “leader” of this country. Those 2 days where we could breathe (and he couldn’t) felt so cathartic." A third said, "Sadly. The people around him caved a few years ago, and allowed him to put a lock on his door. used to be a few people around him w/ a plan to wrestle the nuclear football away from him. They’re gone now. Anyone else terrified that he’s a madman with the codes?"

Another exhausted user opined, "Personally I hope his phone battery goes out. He’s got Covid, you would think he’d be resting. Instead we get cray cray tweets" And one more said, "Trump has gone full Kanye"
