Multiple White House staff have tested positive for COVID-19 today




The White House press pool was just informed, but Chief of Staff Mark Meadows is not releasing any further information.

This comes less than 24 hours after international leaders met with President Trump.

49. you may not be far off....

it's entirely likely he has been getting plasma transfusions from military members who have already had and recovered from the disease.

That would potentially up his immunity in general. I wouldn't put it past him.

The White House called the journalists from the pool 30 minutes late to get our routine covid test. I was told they were late because "It was a very busy morning. We had a couple of positives today"

I don't know if Karma actually exists. If it does. I was thinking tRump getting a fatal case of Covid-19 would be good. Probably to quick though. Dieing after spending a few years, penniless, behind bars would probably be idea.

I'm normally not a person that wishes bad things on anyone. tRump is just so despicable, I truly hate him like no other.

72. We'll need a concerted DU stakeout to track magat's public sightings, so that when

he's seemed to have gone missing, we'll be able to pinpoint the exact moment he was last seen.

That way, we can have some idea of how long the gangster has been on a ventilator, and what that prognosis might be.

At this point, if he catches it, the debates are GONE.
