WATCH: Here’s What Happened When a Man Brought a Cardboard Cutout of Trump With Him to Dialysis

A man in Port Lucie, Florida undergoes dialysis treatment three days a week, with each appointment lasting three-and-a-half hours. Nelson Gibson’s family isn’t allowed to stay with him but patients are encouraged to bring things that make them feel at home.

At first, Gibson brought an 8×10 picture of President Trump to keep him company. No one said anything or complained about it. Down the road, his son, Eric, bought a mini cardboard cutout of Gibson holding the picture and standing next to the president. Again, no one said anything or complained. In fact, Gibson said people would take pictures of it.

Gibson stepped it up a notch with a life-size cardboard cutout of Trump and took it with him to dialysis. No one mentioned it or seemed to take any issue with it. A few days later he returned for his treatment and was told he could no longer bring the cutout with him. . .

The family didn’t say anything but decided to leave. Eric decided to contact the facility to figure out why his father was unable to bring the cardboard cutout with him.

“It was supposed to be an issue of safety infectious disease, which made no sense,” the son recounted.
