President Donald Trump, a denier of the COVID-19 virus, and his wife Melania have tested positive for the virus. They have gone into quarantine.
This is what we call just desserts. Trump denied all aspects of the virus, refused to wear a mask or participate in social distancing. He’s advocated all that publicly, lying about the science behind the virus and disputing advice of Dr. Fauci and Dr. Birx.
Hubris hurts. Trump carried on like everyone was crazy and he knew something we didn’t. He knew nothing.
PS Thanks to NBC News. They had it and broke into “Seth Meyers” without even warning. They’re on live now at 1:24am. Good work.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

As too many Americans have done this year, @potus & I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good & I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe & we will all get through this together.
