Trump’s New Chief of Staff is Quarantined

Trump reportedly pushed his former chief of staff Mick Mulveney out the White House door because he did not believe Mulvaney was capable of managing the regime's response to the coronavirus, but Trump's new chief of staff is not off to a great start.

Trump's brand new chief of staff, Mark Meadows, is literally not capable of doing the job right now because he's been quarantined as a precaution.

Mark Meadows, the veteran Republican congressman from North Carolina who is taking over as Trump’s top aide, joined Republican representatives Doug Collins of Georgia and Matt Gaetz of Florida, who announced earlier Monday that they had entered self-imposed quarantine.

Senator Ted Cruz and Representative Paul Gosar, both of Texas, had earlier announced they had isolated themselves.

Trump attended the same event on Feb. 29 and recently spent time with both Collins and Gaetz.

I do not wish for anyone to contract the coronavirus, but I will say it's some kind of cosmic justice that Republicans spent most of CPAC 2020 trolling liberals for being concerned about the virus and then someone at the conference spread the virus to attendees.

    You’re a better person than me.

    It’s a weird time we live in when the likes of Ted Cruz can be praised for doing the right thing.

    And if anyone deserves a (relatively mild) case of Covid-19, it’s Matt Gaetz, who infamously posted on Twitter a photo of himself wearing a gas mask with a note that he was going to the House floor to discuss the government’s response to coronavirus.

    It’s a good thing Trump isn’t a 73 year old in questionable health with preexisting conditions such as morbid obesity from a lifetime of shitty eating habits and a lack of exercise. Otherwise, this “hoax” virus might be a threat to him.
