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!

    Oh cry harder, you tone-trolling little shitnugget. You're all about the surface and nothing about the substance. I don't care if you think my explanation of how Hell works is "disingenuous," you're still "going there" (see previous posts about how this isn't strictly accurate etc etc etc).

    If you hate it so bad, *leave.*

    LMAO @ ZumZum

    No matter your opinion of me, no matter how much you hate, you will concede that I start some very intense conversations here. And, I contribute to a lot of others.

    And, you want ME to leave?

    Apparently you don't care whether the site succeeds, whether it lives and prospers.

    That makes me wonder why you even want to be a member of the staff. Is it control that you are hoping for?

      Posting rightwing bullshit is not constructive. You are a pox on this site. The small # of decent comments is far outweighed by your propaganda pushing.

      Ummm, yeah. I guess that's one way of seeing it. The pure hubris is absolutely astounding. And galling.
