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!

    Still, there's probably an underlying hint of schadenfreude because of the cavalier attitude Trump has taken regarding the pandemic.

    There is that. And, I have to admit that I share in it, to some degree. We've all seen the headlines when some famous person is struck with Covid, and it has been cool when people chuckle, or offer up an "I told you so."

    So far, I haven't even heard an "I told you so" from my extended family and acquaintances.

    Hope you don't catch COVID from all that Trump cock you keep sucking.

      You need to get tested too. I hear it can be injected up your ass as well!

        For buttplay I prefer at least average sized tools. Trump's mushroom dick would probably just tickle. You should stay away from matches, wall outlets, mildly steep ramps, etc.
