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!

    Body language doesn't come across. I was not angry or upset. I was completely calm writing that message, as I am when writing this message.

    In the name of the lollipop guild, we wish to welcome you to munchkin land!

    Yeah, you went all the way out the other side into "shut it all down!" I could hear the hatches battening from here.

    Danny, the key to breaking you out of this crap is that *you are a better and more moral being than your God is.* Stop and ask yourself why this is so.

    I am "that girl" your mother warned you about...
