This is what happens when you hate wearing a mask and host large gatherings without any mask requirements. I’m just saying.
If you saw tons of people rejoicing on your twitter timeline this morning, here’s why.
Late last night, your President (you know the one doing most of the interrupting during the recent presidential debate) announced that him and his wife, Melania Trump, tested positive for COVID-19 immediately after a White House aide, Hope Hicks, tested positive for the virus.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

Now, we all know that Miss Rona does not discriminate. However, if you’re anything like me, you’re probably thinking that it is highly ironic that Donnie and his wife have acquired the COVID-19 virus right after a messy debate in which he acted like a complete fool. The fact that he teased Biden for always wearing a mask is what some people might consider poetic justice.
However, this situation doesn’t quite sit right with me. Trump always has something up his sleeve. With only 32 days until the election and just 13 days until the next presidential debate, wouldn’t it only be right for one of Trump’s poor campaign strategies be to attempt to gauge voters’ sympathy? Could this be a way to make amends for the way he conducted himself during the recent debate and all of the havoc he’s caused within his first term? You would think that he wouldn’t have to stoop this low to salvage his campaign that is too far gone down the toilet as the incumbent; but you never know.
If your president and first lady truly have the virus, maybe people will finally understand that this virus is serious. As if finding out that the death of over 200,000 Americans wasn’t alarming enough, now the doubters have proof.
So, let’s join Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden and send them our thoughts and prayers for a very speedy recovery, even if it’s after the next presidential debate.
Jill and I send our thoughts to President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump for a swift recovery. We will continue to pray for the health and safety of the president and his family.

If you are eligible to vote, let’s all do Trump and his wife a favor by releasing him from his political and presidential duties and letting him fully recover from COVID-19. This will give him plenty of free time to continue to troll the internet with his goons via his Twitter account.
Mask up y’all.
