So Prince William didn’t want to tell anyone about his bout with Covid, so as not to scare people, and he gets a pass, but when Trump didn’t terrify all of America in January by telling them that 2 million people ARE GOING TO DIE, (according to the NY Times) he’s a jerk. Okay. Got it.
BTW, I know a few talk show hosts who’ve had Covid, but didn’t tell their audience. That’s their choice of course, but I think as a professional communicator, you owe it to people to share what you’re going through (within reason).
God forbid some of these guys admit a frailty. I shared my experience with Covid because I’m a mortal being like everyone else, and I thought it might help some people
