We’ve got the latest on the latest sonovabitch to come down with what President Trump has labeled “Zipperhead Lung AIDS.”
An aide to Vice President Mike Pence has tested positive for the coronavirus.
Pence, point person for the White House response to COVID-19, did not work closely with the person, his press secretary Katie Miller said Friday night.
“This evening we were notified that a member of the Office of the Vice President tested positive for the Coronavirus,” Miller said in a statement. “Neither President Trump nor Vice President Pence had close contact with the individual.”
Miller added: “Further contact tracing is being conducted in accordance with CDC guidelines.”
Although businesses around the country established work-from-home policies, most workers in the White House and Eisenhower Executive Office Building still do their work in-person. It’s unclear where exactly the individual’s office was located, or if other staff members will undergo self-quarantine.
Trump’s outgoing White House chief of staff Mick Mulvaney currently is in self-quarantine and the president’s Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham worked from home this week after a visit by infected Brazilian officials to Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.
Trump’s incoming chief of staff Mark Meadows and other congressmen with whom Trump interacted self-quarantined after being exposed to the virus at the Conservative Political Action Conference.
If those dirty gooks wouldn’t have eaten a soup of bat, we wouldn’t be in this mess.
People need to stop criticizing Trump and place the blame where it belongs: on the slopes.
Meanwhile, New York has sirens all night long now because all the boomers are dying.
The last time I heard this many ambulance sirens piercing the NYC night was 9/11 . #COVID19 is slamming us…8000 cases and counting, hospitals full, #Trump declared us a national emergency zone. Things turned radically today….our surge has started. pic.twitter.com/jEwk7W2upe

Will New York be better or worse without boomers?
