Trump announced he and Melania tested positive for Covid-19.\
(CNN)President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump tested positive for coronavirus, the President announced early Friday morning.
"Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!" Trump tweeted shortly before 1 am Friday.
The President had said earlier in the night that he planned to quarantine. "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!" Trump tweeted Thursday night.
I don't know what to make of this. Trump has lied so often about so many things, I'm not sure I can believe this -- yet.
If it's true, I'd ask him how he could possibly have Covid-19, since he called it a Democratic HOAX.
And he mocked people who wore masks. A practice that his own CDC head said was the most effective way of preventing the spread of or catching Covid-19.
No one would wish this virus on anyone, but we can be sure that the POTUS and FLOTUS will receive the best care.
Perhaps Trump won't be so quick to mock those who wear masks to protect themselves, and finally understand how dangerous this virus truly is. But, I'm not counting on it.
Just now, this is all I can think of:
