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!

    However, if you really do wanna pursue this

    Nahhh, to much bother, really. But I can hope that there really is such a thing as karma, and "just desserts" and so on. There is a lot of hatred out there.

    +1 insightful, for being the voice of reason.

    I seem to recall the RBG thread being full of conservaive hatred and vitriol. Yes, I surely do hope there is such as thing as karma.

      The odds of recovering from COVID-19 are much better than the odds of recovering from Trump Derangement Syndrome.
