NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — The widow of Broadway actor Nick Cordero spoke out Monday after President Donald Trump sent a tweet saying, “Don’t be afraid of Covid.”

“Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life,” the president tweeted before he was discharged from Walter Reed Medical Center.

I will be leaving the great Walter Reed Medical Center today at 6:30 P.M. Feeling really good! Don’t be afraid of Covid. Don’t let it dominate your life. We have developed, under the Trump Administration, some really great drugs & knowledge. I feel better than I did 20 years ago!

“Unfortunately it did dominate our lives didn’t it? It dominated Nick’s family’s lives and my family’s lives. I guess we “let it” – like it was our choice??” she posted.

To all the over 208,000 Americans who lost loved ones to this virus – I stand by you, with you, holding your hand. Unfortunately it did dominate our lives didn’t it? It dominated Nick’s family’s lives and my family’s lives. I guess we “let it” – like it was our choice?? Unfortunately not everyone is lucky enough 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. It IS something to be afraid of. After you see the person you love the most die from this disease you would never say what this tweet says. There is no empathy to all the lives lost. He is bragging instead. It is sad. It is hurtful. It is disgraceful.

Cordero spent 95 days in the hospital before losing his battle with COVID-19. He had been in a medically induced coma and his right leg was amputated.

“Unfortunately not everyone is lucky enough 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. It IS something to be afraid of,” Kloots wrote.

Cordero made his Broadway debut in 2012 and later went on to originate the role of mob boss “Sonny” in the stage production of Chazz Palminteri’s “A Bronx Tale,” choreographed by Sergio Trujillo.
