With President Donald Trump and wife Melania Trump revealing that they tested positive for Covid-19, things have taken a wild turn. In the past, Trump was heavily criticized for not taking the coronavirus seriously, and downplaying the gravity of the ongoing pandemic, so when it was revealed that he was positive, people had mixed reactions to it. Director Michael Moore was convinced that Trump is faking his sickness, and posted a conspiracy theory on his Facebook page implying the same. 

In his post, Moore pointed out how Trump is a "professional" and "serial liar", who has lied to our face many times. So, he questioned why anyone should believe that he is suddenly telling the truth about his health. He wrote, "There is one absolute truth about Trump: He is a consistent, absolute, unrelenting, fearless, and professional liar. A serial liar. A factually proven liar. How many lies now has the Washington Post proven in these four years? 25,000? A lie at least twice during every waking hour? Think of all the bad people you’ve known in your life. Even the worst ones you couldn’t say that about. So why on earth would we believe him today? Has he earned your trust now?"  

Moore, later in his post, acknowledged that Trump might indeed have the deadly virus, but one must also consider the possibility that he might just be lying about it, given his track record of lying. In case you're wondering why Trump would ever lie about such a thing, Moore explains in his post that this could be a ploy to gain "sympathy" from voters. Moore wrote, "He’s (Trump) an evil genius and I raise the possibility of him lying about having Covid-19 to prepare us and counteract his game. He knows being sick tends to gain one sympathy. He’s not above weaponizing this."

Moore also explored the possibility that Trump might use his diagnosis to delay or postpone the upcoming elections. In his post, Moore noted that although the US Constitution doesn't give the president the power to move the election, Trump and his administration will simply ignore it. "He and his thug Attorney General Barr have no shame and will stop at nothing to stay in power. He may even use this as an excuse for losing," Moore expressed.

Moore's conspiracy theory might be questionable, but the fact that the QAnon group (far-right conspiracy theorists) who once claimed that the virus was a hoax, are slamming Moore for speculating that Trump might be faking the virus, left people on the internet amused. A user tweeted, "QAnon people whining about Michael Moore creating a conspiracy theory. Now that is some funny sh*t." "Love to hear what Qanon conspiracy theorists have to say about Michael Moore thinking a well-documented liar could be lying," joked a user. Another user wrote, "QAnon and Michael Moore are suggesting Trump is faking it (although for different reasons) and I'd like to suggest we let QAnon adopt Michael Moore. It's always heartwarming when someone finds a clan that gets their particular brand of crazy."



 



 



 

"Qanon creates an insane theory that Biden was wearing a wire during the debate due to a crease in his shirt, yet Michael Moore is crazy for suggesting Trump's Covid-19 diagnosis could be fake to get sympathy.... OK, I mean Moore is crazy, but you get my point," expressed an amused user. Another user pointed, "Michael Moore says, "hey maybe Trump is faking his diagnosis, just saying" and all the right and QAnon folks who have been SCREAMING that coronavirus is a hoax are all up in their knickers crying, "We should pray for our President, this is no joke" and I just can't even... "
