Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

A report from c|net adds:

White House physician Dr. Sean Conley said in a memorandum late Thursday that the president and first lady were "both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence."

The announcement of the president and first lady's positive coronavirus test results came just hours after the revelation that top White House aide Hope Hicks had tested positive for the virus as well. The president indicated in an earlier tweet that he and the first lady had begun the quarantine process.

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!

    No coincidence at all. You rank as the most toxic person on this site, telling anyone who disagrees with you that they will burn in hell

    Out of curiosity, Is Azuma the only person who says that to you? ;)

    Uhhhmmmm, yes. Throughout my life, I've accumulated a small collection of "go to hells", at least half of those spoken in jest. I've heard preachers threatening hellfire on congregations if they didn't mend their ways. But I've never met ANYONE who throws around the hellfires like 'Zumi does.

    I think you were shooting at "funny", but there's your honest answer. ;^)

    Don’t confuse the news with the truth.

      You are correct, I was shooting for funny. I feel like my count of people telling you off here is different from yours, but I'll concede it's not like I have a chart of it handy.
