President Donald Trump

WASHINGTON, D.C. – President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have been infected with the dreaded Coronavirus, he admitted on social media today.

“Tonight, @FLOTUS (First Lady Melania) and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” Trump tweeted around midnight. Reportedly, he is showing mild symptoms of illness.  Two hours prior, he tweeted, “Hope Hicks, who has been working so hard without even taking a small break, has just tested positive for Covid 19. Terrible! The First Lady and I are waiting for our test results. In the meantime, we will begin our quarantine process!”

Vice President Mike Pence and his wife have tested negative, reportedly.  He was in Iowa Thursday.

In the United States, the virus has claimed 207, 818 lives thus far.

Joe Biden

Trump’s positive test throws the campaign and the nation for yet another curve.  If Trump is quarantined, he will find it difficult to campaign as polls show his campaign sinking lower and lower versus his opponent, former Vice President Joe Biden, as Americans flock in groves to cast votes.  Just this morning, Biden tweeted, “Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery. We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family.”

    James Phillips, an attending physician at Walter Reed, tweeted that the drive-by photo op was “insanity.”
    “Every single person in the vehicle during that completely unnecessary Presidential “drive-by” just now has to be quarantined for 14 days,” he tweeted. “They might get sick. They may die. For political theater. This is insanity.”

      He also exposed countless people thanks to his maskless photo shoot on Saturday, and tonight when he took his mask off at the WH door. What a fool, his staff members and SS men mean NOTHING to him.

    When he’s released tomorrow, it will be time to open the country and vote in person or absentia no mail in ballots or ballot harvesting.
    That is the chickens coming home to roost.

      If he is released tomorrow and resumes his normal activity, it is probably an even money bet that he faked the whole thing.

        Gosh, Melania must be full of irrational fears too as she just released info that all White House staffers will be required to wear full PPE until this is over.

          0.26% fatality rate. More than 60% of infected persons don’t have any symptoms. This virus is no more deadly than ordinary flu.

            Then why do the experts say otherwise? Why is the most informed woman in the country making her staff and the entire White House staff wear full PPE gear? Your leAder must not believe it is a hoax. Besides he is losing it. Way down in polls, sick, on his way to jail, and seeking another bankruptcy, this time personal, whacked out on a high potency steroid, and watching his fantasy dissolve in place. I put my money on the smart people in the room. I am sure you will find the world goes on after he is gone.

            What ‘experts’ are you referencing? CNN? Twitter?? Washington Post??? There are plenty of medical professionals with actual licenses who recognize this pathogen is no more deadly than the ordinary flu. Problem is, media outlets only report on the ones which fit their narrative.

            So, the First Lady and the rest of the administration are just falling into the trap of believing the virus is real? Give me a break.

    “Why would you have ANY sympathy for a president, joined by his wife, who contracts a disease that he knowingly, willing — and gleefully — spread? Through disinformation, anti-science policies, super spreader rallies, incessant mocking of masks, disinformation, constant lies, muddled policies, etc. etc. You don’t have to wish anyone ill, but sympathy for this unprecedented level of hubris that has caused untold death and misery — please, save it for the afflicted and dead who have suffered because of his deception. And check in with that deeper, knowing part of yourself that retains some sense of reason and higher perspective.”

    Joe and Jill Biden sent well wishes to the President and hoped for a quick recovery. That is something the other guy wouldn’t have done. By the way, Melanie got herself into some hot water with her fould mouth, didn’t she?

      Trump has brushed off Covid like nothing, will go ahead with the debate and trounce Joe, and will go on to win the election by a huge margin.

      Don’t believe me? Come back in a month and run your mouth/keypad.
