By now you’ve heard that President Trump and first lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus.
The president shared the news just a few hours after we got word that one of his top aides, Hope Hicks, had tested positive. Most folks are wishing the pair well, or saying prayers for them before they go to sleep tonight.
President Trump is a high-risk group for COVID hospitalization, given his age and weight. But, as you can probably (sadly) expect, his critics are either smirking, or outright celebrating the scary diagnosis.
Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!

Student gun control activist Cameron Kasky posted an Instagram video of himself laughing at the diagnosis. And there’s apparently a whole thread of Tik Tokers who are sharing their own bliss.
See below for some more outrageous responses, including those who suggested that the president had it coming.
