Kayleigh McEnany Is The Latest Trumpworld COVID Catcher
White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany is the latest Trump staffer to test positive for COVID-19 after President Prospero's Red Death gala for Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett.
McEnany released this statement:
MCENANY: After testing negative consistently, including every day since Thursday, I tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday morning while experiencing no symptoms.
Congratulations. No, seriously, we don't want anyone to get ill, but even if you're asymptomatic, you are still a potential threat for spreading the disease. That might've been important to know at Barrett's Sweet Sixteen.
MCENANY: As an essential worker, I have worked diligently to provide needed information to the American people at this time.
Aside from its comma usage, everything in that sentence is wrong.
MCENANY: With my recent positive test, I will begin the quarantine process and will continue working on behalf of the American people remotely.
Everyone at the Barrett bash should be in quarantine right now, and I don't want Kamala Harris anywhere near Mike Pence this week.
