McEnany tests positive for COVID-19

Source: The Hill

White House press secretary Kayleigh McEnany tested positive for COVID-19, she said Monday, making her the latest person in President Trump's orbit to contract the virus.

“After testing negative consistently, including every day since Thursday, I tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while experiencing no symptoms. No reporters, producers or members of the press are listed as close contacts by the White House Medical Unit,” she said in a statement.

“As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time,” she continued. “With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.”

6. Ms McEnany, YOU ARE NOT AN ESSENTIAL WORKER, as a matter of fact you are just like

the other liars who occupied that same spot, any person with no principles can do what you do, you are not essential, and yes you have worked diligently to lie and misinform, so please, take your quarantine and meditate about your role in this administration, how much hate you have allowed to come from your mouth by repeating the lies of the man you work for.

Meditate hard about what you have become, a tool for a corrupt administration, and a sad case. Think about the work you put throughout your life to become a lawyer to now be reduced to a simple lying tool, please understand the shame of it all and hopefully you will come out of this a better person. I wish you well, physically and spiritually. Life and the universe understand very well you need spiritual cleansing.

Between ACB and KMcN, they sure are putting a lot of children at risk.

ACB had her children at the super spreader event last Saturday.

Kellyanne Conway’s daughter tweeted that she (the daughter) is positive.

I want the children to be healthy. This is ridiculous neglect on the part of the parents.

69. Less likely for Biden to be positive

Compared to Trump's inner circl.e who have multiple close up exposures with each other, always without protection. It's possible that Biden was exposed at the debate, but they were 12 feet apart in a large room.

Regarding Biden, I worry more about exposure through other people, e.g. Dem Senators on committees with Republicans. Kamala Harris, for example, is on the Senate Judiciary Committee where two R members are positive after the WH superspreader event. I am hoping she is staying away.

37. Yes.

Those exposed are recommended to wait 5-7 days to even take the covid test, because covid might not show up on the test before. It hasn't yet been seven days since the debate.
And the incubation period for covid is up to 14 days.

She‘s only 32, so her survival chances are pretty good.

Of course, had she just worn a piece of cloth over her fucking face and kept her distance a bit, she could have avoided that small chance of death entirely. Hope it was worth it.

41. The virus decides

Do the folks in the White House not realize that testing doesn't prevent infection?

In May of this year, Dr. Fauci made an observation about Covid-19. The ongoing firestorm of contagion in the White House brought it to mind:

"The novel coronavirus has a *phenomenal* ability to spread like wildfire. One thing this virus has that's really different from so many other viruses . . . its ability and efficiency in spreading from person to person. This is a virus that spreads as easily as any virus that I've ever known apart from, maybe, measles."
