Stevie Nicks says “payback” is coming for Trump after Covid diagnosis

"Payback’s a bitch, so there you go"

Stevie Nicks has discussed Donald Trump‘s coronavirus diagnosis, and how she believes “payback” is coming for the President.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump confirmed that they were self-isolating after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month.

Speaking in a new interview with Billboard, Nicks spoke of her own experience shielding from the virus, and how her own experiences taking steroids make her believe that the President was under medication after being released from hospital.


“I have said this in every interview and I’ll say it again – I’m not getting this [virus],” the Fleetwood Mac singer said. “I am never going to get something that could last for the rest of my life.

“And I don’t have 40 years. I have 10 or 15, maybe. And I want these next 10 or 15 years to be brilliant, creative, wonderful years. And I am not going to be dealing with the after-effects of COVID-19 because the people in power did not get a hold of this in March.”

She added: “I will also say – and this is just funny, so we can laugh about it – but President Trump got it. And I’m very sad for that, because I don’t want anybody to get this, but he did. And the thing is, he went into the best hospital in the world and had this set of drugs that none of us will ever get.

“He got a full round of four or five days of steroids; I had really bad pneumonia last year and I hate steroids, because they have really bad side effects, like gaining weight, and they make you very nervous. And so he comes out and he’s like, ‘I have a glow,’ and I’m going, ‘Yeah… you have a steroid glow.’

“On five days of doing steroids in the hospital, I never slept – never. Me and my assistant watched the Kardashians for five solid days. We also watched Very Cavallari, South Park, I Love Lucy, we just watched TV and screamed with laughter for five days.


“When I came out of there, I gained about — because I starved myself — six or seven pounds that I have yet to lose. And that was over a year ago. So what I am laughing about is, just wait until President Trump starts to gain weight — because he will, because everybody does. Payback’s a bitch, so there you go.”

Nicks also recently spoke about the viral craze sweeping TikTok, started by a user posting a video of himself skateboarding while listening to Fleetwood Mac hit ‘Dreams’.

Saying the video had “blown my mind,” Nicks added: “I’m happy about it because it seems to have made so many people happy.”
