Trump's national security adviser tests positive for Covid-19

Source: CNN

President Donald Trump's national security adviser, Robert O'Brien, has tested positive for Covid-19, according to an official familiar with what happened.

O'Brien's diagnosis marks the highest-ranking Trump administration official known to have tested positive. It's unclear when O'Brien last met with Trump. Their last public appearance together was over two weeks ago during a visit to US Southern Command in Miami on July 10.

O'Brien, one of Trump's top aides, recently returned from Europe, where he and his top deputy met with officials from the UK, France, Germany and Italy.

A senior administration official told CNN that O'Brien has been working from home since last week.

He was always a germ-a-phobe anyway, now this is getting much too close to home.

5. Except

I think Trump knows that is bullshit, just another worthless gimmick he was trying to sell. Many have their doubts that he even took the drug.

10. I always wondered if he's really a germaphobe or not.

He claims to be, but we all know he's a liar. And he refused to put on a mask till his back was to the wall... and he raw-dogs porn stars.

11. I suspect that most people who see Trump daily are forced to maintain distance.

In Tulsa, for example, Trump wasnít close to any attendees. The Secret Service are probably closer to Trump, and I havenít noticed whether they have been wearing masks. In any event, people around him are tested constantly and whisked out of the way at the first whiff of a symptom.

15. How do you know he hasn't?

If he came down with it, there's no way the administration would ever tell us.

16. He would be dead or in the ER.

he is old, out of shape, obese, gets out of breath when he walks or talks. That guy would not have a mild case of it.
Besides if he did he would not have been able to stop himself from bragging about how he beat the virus.
