Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump are now officially part of the 8.8 million people who have tested positive for COVID-19 according to NBCNews. People near Trump have been contracting the virus that he downplayed for months and the chickens have finally come home to roost. The announcement of their status comes after a late-night news report that White House aide Hope Hicks tested positive and is showing symptoms.
Shortly after that news broke, Trump tweeted this:
Ol boy better tighten up. As reported by NewsOne, his NUMEROUS preexisting health conditions leave him seriously vulnerable to the worst that COVID-19 has to offer. Not only that, NewsOne reports that Trump, who wants you to think he’s the “healthiest individual ever elected to the presidency”, suffered a series of ministrokes that hospitalized him last year. Remember that?
Here is the letter that 53% of white women’s president’s personal physician released to the public:
I release the following information with the permission of President Donald J. Trump and First Lady Melania Trump.
This evening I received confirmation that both President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
The President and First Lady are both well at this time, and they plan to remain at home within the White House during their convalescence.
The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch, and I appreciate the support provided by some of our country’s greatest medical professionals and institutions.
Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering, and I will keep you updated on any future developments.
As you can imagine, the news is tearing a hole in the Twitter time continuum. People are torn about whether or not they actually believe that Trump and Melania are infected because 1600 STFU Avenue is a reality TV show right now. Kris Jenner and Mona Scott Young ain’t got nothing on executive-producer-in-chief Donald Trump.
Since making his announcement about quarantine on Twitter, Trump hasn’t sent a single tweet and normally he’d be up spewing BS before he brushes his teeth. That leads us to believe that maybe he is quarantined in a White House dunge-…safe room with very little cell phone service. Lord willin’.
Reactions to the news are coming faster and more furious than Vin Diesel.

In a serendipitously petty moment, today is also World Smile Day, and NewsOne’s collected a gang of Tweets from people celebrating the holiday. See more HERE.
Trump better be careful.
