Published

UPDATE, with a video message Amanda Kloots, the former actress who recounted her late husband Nick Cordero’s painful decline from COVID-19, responded to Don’t Let COVID Dominate Your Life Advice, calling the President’s words sad, hurtful and shameful.

Yesterday, Trump, hospitalized this weekend for COVID treatment, announced his departure from Walter Reed Medical Center with an instantly controversial tweet: “Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let him rule your life. We have developed very good medicine and knowledge under the Trump administration. I feel better than 20 years ago! “

The muffled tweet sparked contempt from many who have lost loved ones to the coronavirus, including some Hollywood stars such as Zach Braff, a close friend of Cordero.

Kloots weighed in overnight, posting an Instagram post that reads:

To all of the more than 208,000 Americans who have lost loved ones to this virus – I am with you, with you, holding your hand. Unfortunately, it has dominated our lives, hasn’t it? It dominated the life of Nick’s family and that of my family. Guess we ‘let it go’ – like it was our choice ?? Unfortunately, not everyone gets the chance to spend two days in the hospital. I cried next to my husband for 95 days watching what COVID did to the person I love. This is something to be afraid of. After watching the person you love most die of this disease, you would never say what this tweet says. There is no empathy for all the lives lost. He brags instead. It’s sad. It hurts. It is shameful.

In a video (now expired) posted to his Instagram Story feed, the tearful Kloots expressed his shock at Trump’s words.

“I’m sitting here in my house and I’m honestly frozen,” Kloots said. “I can’t even really move. I couldn’t believe what I read. I just have to tell the over 208,000 families who have lost a loved one to this disease, you know how terrifying it can be. Not everyone has the chance to be discharged from the hospital after two days.

“We’ve seen what this disease can do, so guess what? We are scared. We are. I’m always. I think if I’m as sick as Nick, little Elvis doesn’t have his mother anymore, then I’m scared. And let it “rule” your life? No one “leaves” him. Nick did not “give up”. It was not a choice, and it dominated his life, it dominated my life, it dominated the lives of our families for 95 days, and since he failed it will forever affect my life.

Kloots continued, “It’s more than hurtful, and have some empathy! Why are you bragging? Empathize with Americans because you are our leader. Empathize with those who are suffering and grieving. It’s not fair.”

While Instagram’s story has since expired, parts of it have been shared on Twitter. MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough tweeted:

Cordero, who performed on Broadway with Braff in Bullets Over Broadway in 2014, died July 5 at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles after a 95-day battle with COVID-19. The actor’s battle with numerous setbacks and a health crisis was chronicled by his wife, fitness trainer Kloots, in frequent Instagram updates followed by a global fan base.

Earlier yesterday, Kloots posted a post outlining COVID’s toll on survivors like herself and her young son Elvis:

Nick passed away three months ago, but COVID took my husband away on April 1, which was seven months ago. I realized the other day Elvis and I lost him seven months ago. Once he went on the fan he never came back. It’s weird to think we’ve been alone for so long. Please wear a mask. Please continue to take this seriously.
