Kentucky Republican Rand Paul is the first US senator to test positive for coronavirus, according to a statement on Twitter.
“He is feeling fine and is in quarantine. He is asymptomatic and was tested out of an abundance of caution due to his extensive travel and events. He was not aware of any direct contact with any infected person,” the post said.
Sergio Gor, Paul’s deputy chief of staff, expanded on the tweet saying in a statement, “He (Paul) expects to be back in the Senate after his quarantine period ends and will continue to work for the people of Kentucky at this difficult time. … Ten days ago, our D.C. office began operating remotely, hence virtually no staff has had contact with Senator Paul.”
Paul is the third member of Congress to be diagnosed with Covid-19 as cases spread across the country. Florida Rep. Mario Diaz-Balart, a Republican, was the first member of Congress to test positive for coronavirus on March 18. Democratic Rep. Ben McAdams of Utah also announced he tested positive for the virus.
I wish everyone in the government would get the virus and die.
But I don’t think that is going to happen.
Regrettably, after all of that hype, this virus has caused a terribly small number of deaths.
I’m sure Rand is against giving me $1,200, so I specifically want him to die more than I want others to die, but just like suspected pedophile satanist Tom Hanks hasn’t died, Rand Paul is not likely to die.
But seriously: why do only famous people get this disease?
