While you don’t know for sure if President Donald Trump is behind it, somehow you just know he is.
A peculiar thing happened Sunday night outside the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center, hot pizzas kept showing up. By the dozens.
A throng of Trump supporters have been holding a vigil outside the facility since the president was admitted on Friday after testing positive for COVID-19, or as Trump is now calling it, the “plague from China.”
According to one enthusiastic supporter, Domino’s pizzas were being delivered every 45 minutes to the crowd — 250 pies and counting.

The man was convinced that the gift was from President Trump and he offered some really sound logic in support of his theory that’s hard to argue.
“You know it’s from Trump because the sh*t isn’t gluten free. There’s meat on it,” he said. “Trump’s an alpha.”
He also had a personal message for Fake News CNN: “No, we’re not being paid.”
While no one knew for sure who was buying dinner, the general belief was that it had to be Trump.
And while no one knew for sure the source of the generosity, the common belief was that it had to be Trump.

Whether he did or not didn’t matter because Trump supporters were convinced that the president was reciprocating the love they have been showing for him.
On that note, the president left the presidential suite at Walter Reed earlier in the day in a “surprise” drive by to thank the crowd outside.
Gestures such as this are why so many Americans back Trump as strongly as they do.
An example of this sentiment was seen Sunday.
“I will die for him. I will die for that man — happily,” a supporter said Sunday as the presidential motorcade passed by. “I will die for that man. Anyone want to mess with him, you mess with me first. He is a hero, that man!

As expected, the left was apoplectic over the feel-good moment, even though the White House said that it “was cleared by the medical team,” and that “appropriate precautions were taken in the execution of this movement to protect the President and all those supporting it, including PPE.”
The tweet of the day may have come from Daily Caller reporter David Hookstead, who asked: “How long will it take before someone in the media comes out as anti-pizza in an attempt to dunk on Trump.”
President Trump has apparently sent pizza to his supporters outside of Walter Reed.

Here’s a sampling of other responses to the story from Twitter:

All his life Trump has done these kinds of goodwill gestures. That’s the kind of person he is. Ever met a politician like him? I haven’t And I’ve met quite a few working on campaigns. President Trump is the real deal. That’s why we love and support him.
