New York Post columnist Miranda Devine claimed on Tuesday afternoon that it is "incredibly selfish of older people" to be "timid and afraid" of the novel coronavirus that has killed more than 210,000 Americans, adding that they are causing "young people to miss out on the most important part of their lives."

A day after the president bizarre included her email address in a tweet quoting her most recent pro-Trump column celebrating the "bravery" of his COVID-19 battle, Devine appeared on Fox News to applaud the his attempt to portray himself as a hero for surviving the infection.

After airing a portion of the president's campaign-style video in which a raspy Trump—fresh from Walter Reed Medical Center—downplayed the virus and suggested he's "maybe immune," Fox News host Dana Perino asserted that Trump was "sending a message" to Americans that "people want to get back to work and want their kids back in school."
