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!

    Your opinion needs to be adjusted by some facts.

    I've seen far more headlines detailing Dem attempts to rig elections, than I have seen Rep attempts

    Observer bias. Sorry. Independents have pretty strongly confirmed this for the last 20 years. I don't know about 70s, 80s, 90s, or earlier.

    There are half dozen instances of ballot harvesting by Democrats

    Citation from a reputable news source that stands to lose if they print falsehoods, please?

    the new head of the USPS is a fuckwit, his directives never threatened the ability of the post office could deliver the mail.

    I'm afraid both insider experts and direct evidence contradict this.

    USPS insiders (managers and workers and execs) have said his directives will reduce the ability of the post office to deliver mail.

    Or look at the tangible evidence of mail counting machines - which were in working order, and which would take many many human workers to replace - which were destroyed.

    There are other less flashy examples.
