Prayers on Twitter for her to die incoming in 5. 4. 3. . .

She should be fine and I hope she is. She is in the demographic where <1 in 10,000 die, and almost all of those have other issues (immume problems, asthma, etc.).

So what is the spin if (and hoping this is the case) all these WH + Republicans come out of this just fine (like most of America)?
They must transition power to President Pelosi because we don't know how the unproven drugs will affect their judgement. ShareBlue actually sent that out last night.

Well the two biggest fatties are in the hospital right now, Barr tbd as the third but he’s begun quarantine after initially saying he wouldn’t. In any case, they’ll probably all survive, and some will likely experience long term health consequences, so not sure what spin would be required

...this is why you still take measures to protect other people even if you test negative. It’s like pretending a gun is always loaded even if the safety is on and your finger is off the trigger, you never point it at something you don’t intend to shoot.

so you want people to quarantine even if they test negative? for how long?

Good grief, I wonder how many of these people were fucking last week :p
I honestly think that is one of the main modes of transmission - it's why the riots and college starting greatly accelerated the spread. It could be that the virus degrades fast enough in air that you have to be literally swapping spit and breathing someone's exhalation inches away to get it quickly. You might need to be in a room with someone for hours to catch it otherwise.

When exposed to a confirmed positive case the guidelines say 14 days. And absent that, keep a damn mask on in public at the very least. And maybe don’t hold huge events with zero distancing or mask requirements which end up infecting the entire White House staff

Was Hope Hicks patient zero for this? How crazy it must be to have to deal with quarantining during the last month of the election cycle? I'm sure they'll all be fine, but this is going to throw a wrench into everything.

I assume there's lots of fucking in DC.

I lived in DC in my 20s. As an average-looking dude, I could go out almost any weekend and hook-up with a hill staffer. There's a ton of them, at the time they were all cute (this is before liberal women started to look odd), and they were all going wild in the "big" city away from home.

Seems like it, but I find it VERY odd that no notable democrats have tested positive. Some must have come in contact with her (or other GOP members) at some point.

Two housekeeping staff members have tested positive. I’m sure their suites and Walter Reed for them and all their family members are being prepped as we speak.

Off topic.
My dad is 67 years old.
He had an appointment at the doctors last week and asked for a corona virus test and they give him one.
He got a phone call today saying he tested positive...
Nothing wrong with him.

But Biden said 200 million people died, the left says Covid is so bad it traveled back in time and killed the dinosaurs (previously it was glutens)
