Donald Trump Jr. laughed at the virus. He thought it was all a big joke. He thought it was a hoax.
Well, he’s not laughing now.
He’s been infected with the hoax.
Donald Trump Jr., President Donald Trump’s eldest son, has tested positive for the coronavirus, a personal spokesman told CNN on Friday.
“Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been quarantining out at his cabin since the result,” the spokesman said. “He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines.”
Bloomberg was first to report Trump Jr.’s positive result.
Trump Jr. becomes the latest figure close to the President to test positive for Covid-19. In addition to himself, first lady Melania Trump, his youngest son Barron, his chief of staff Mark Meadows and a number of other top aides both in his campaign and in the White House have tested positive in recent months.
Trump Jr.’s girlfriend, Kimberly Guilfoyle, also tested positive for the virus over the summer as the duo campaigned for Trump throughout the country.
By the time you read this, Don Jr. will probably already be dead.
The virus has already killed virtually everyone in the Republican Party, but they continued to act like it was all a game.
The coronavirus acts fast. Once it gets its hooks into you, you’re on a clock – counting down to your doom.
Trump Jr. denied science. Now, science is coming for its revenge.
For science, you see, is a jealous discipline. And it will not be denied.
Least surprising news of the week: Donald Trump Jr., whose tweets dismissed the importance of social distancing and mask wearing, has tested positive for #COVID19. It's almost as if science is a real thing. https://t.co/tLy6voepeX

"Give me a break…I kept hearing about new infections, but…'Why aren't they talking about deaths? Oh! because the number is almost nothing.'"

He now has COVID.
Yesterday 1,962 Americans died of COVID.
Over 253,000 Americans have died so far.

He laughed in the face of the truth of science. Now, the truth of science is laughing back. A laugh of pure destruction.
It’s like that old saying: Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when Donald Trump Jr. tests positive for coronavirus.

The virus doesn’t care if you are a Democrat or a Republican. It doesn’t care if you think it’s a hoax.
It can’t be bargained with, it can’t be reasoned with, it doesn’t feel pity or remorse or fear, and it absolutely will not stop, ever, until you are dead.
