Default Trump and First Lady Test Positive for COVID-19

Saw this new in another thread but I think it deserves it's own because there will be lots of developments and I look forward to see who he blames for it.

Looks like the President knew Hope Hicks had it but he travelled to a fundraiser regardless.

Be interesting to see how many Hope Hicks infects, she was around a lot of people.

I'm not shocked at all. The shocking thing to me was that it took so long for him to get it. Someone who brags about not wearing a mask and has giant rallies is just begging to get it.

Given his age and the fact he's significantly overweight he would be considered high risk. Not surprising though as he's never taken it seriously

I hope he didn’t give it to Biden.

I’m not on the liberal side of continually bashing Trump, but there is something humorous of him getting it considering he was more or less a denier for the longest time. Obviously it’s deadly and as a human I hope he recovers but the irony of characters like him and Boris Johnson getting it is pretty interesting.

Politicians, with all the travel and events they engage in, are obviously going to be high risk for contracting Covid. A number of global leaders have had it. No reason to give credence to conspiracy theories.

At the debate Trump made fun of Biden for always wearing a mask. I doubt he, nor any of his supporters will see the irony.

Bolsonaro in Brazil as well. All of the major deniers have now acquired it. Not a coincidence, but no conspiracy.. Their behavior is what led to them getting an infection.

Couldn't happen to a more deserving guy.

if he doesn't get really sick, he'll be campaigning, "See, no worse than the flu"...

Guaranteed that by the end of the weekend, this will metastasize into a plot by the democrats to 'poison' Trump so he can't go on the campaign trail.

The guys mouth is so physically large and he is constantly talking...in any given room he must consume a vastly disproportionate amount of the air. He's like a giant vacuum. I'm shocked it took him this long to contract it.

I'm glad the OP started this. This is a pretty important development. There's a lot of unknowns right now but hopefully he and his wife recover fully and can ease into a nice retirement. He can help design the best Presidential Library ever.

Maybe he can debate Biden using monitors? I was looking forward to their townhall meeting.

Reports on Twitter are saying Trump has been taken to Walter Reed and is feverish.

There should be a “have you tested positive/had covid thread, and what did you experience. But I guess that would be a little to personal? Unless there is one and I missed it.
