Ben Carson, who attended the White House's election-night watch party, has tested positive for COVID-19

Ben Carson, the secretary of housing and urban development, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, ABC News' Katherine Faulders reported on Monday. Several other media outlets, including Bloomberg, CNN, and NBC News, confirmed the news shortly after.

"His deputy chief of staff says he's 'in good spirits & feels fortunate to have access to effective therapeutics which aid and markedly speed his recovery,'" Faulders tweeted.

She added that Carson attended the election-night watch party at the White House last week. The White House chief of staff, Mark Meadows, told associates last Wednesday that he tested positive for COVID-19. Meadows had also attended the watch party the night before, The New York Times reported. On Monday afternoon, Bloomberg reported that David Bossie, a Trump adviser who is leading the legal fight to overturn the election results, tested positive on Sunday.

The election-night party featured little social distancing and almost no masks ó and with Meadows, Carson, and several White House staffers testing positive, the event has invited sharp scrutiny, particularly given the White House's refusal to disclose who has been infected.

2. Good.

Another ratfucker who deserves the outcome he enabled by his ratfucking.

They were warned X's 1000 that Covid didn't give a shit who you were and he still drank the bleach. He worked hard to get it I hope it ravages his body, he deserves it.

5. I wonder if Carson has/had symptoms

and that's why he was tested. I wonder how long he's been infectious. My boss and his wife met him at a small campaign event in a Houston suburb the week before the election. My boss and his wife are not mask wearers. I found a pic from the event and Carson wasn't wearing a mask either.

Carson was probably at the Rose Garden event for Any Coney Barrett on Oct 5th. When did he catch it and who has he spread it to?

6. If he were experiencing fatigue, it would be hard to tell...

...because he looks half-asleep all the time already.
