You might want to start wearing that mask, Mr. Vice President:
Katie Miller, a spokesperson for Pence and wife of Stephen Miller, has tested positive for coronavirus, according to two people with knowledge of Miller’s diagnosis. Trump also said today that”Katie” has tested positive. https://t.co/uQb4pv8QdB

Well, the next several weeks will be interesting times for the paranoid #Trump and the sycophantic #Pence.
Her personal assistant has been diagnosed too.
Her husband, Stephen Miller, has got to be pretty nervous right now.
If Stephen Miller hasn't test positive yet, he will soon enough.
At any rate, he shouldn’t be advising $rump for at least 14 days.
So I looked up Katie Miller (née Waldman), because I was surprised that the white supremacist Miller had married a dark-complected woman.
She’s a conservative Jew (as is Miller himself), born in Florida. Her current position is as Pence’s press secretary, and her preparation for interacting with news media was in college, when she helped to destroy hundreds of copies of a student newspaper that made an endorsement she didn’t like.
You noticed that, too, M.J? I had him down for a tall, willowy blond. Then again, he’s not all that tall himself. I still need help with a racist Jew.
Racism is learned, not genetic.
Completely correct, Mad one. Nor is it specific to or limited to one culture. Every society passes their racism along to their children.
But she seemed so nice.
There's probably some pretty good job security for contact tracers in all of this, given K Miller and Trump's valet testing positive, and a decent number of recent Trump and/or Pence meetings, trips, and appearances – all combined with masks at best optional and the raw-dogging unprotected shaking of hands.
Probably underfunded the effort along with everything else.
Trump tested positive for the bullshit virus a long time ago. Unfortunately, in his case, there is no cure.
I can think of one cure. For the rest of us anyway:
I just heard the OD say, today…”This is going to go away by itself.”
C’mon, GOP. If you wait for voters to remove this madman, our country may not survive. As it is, all I can say is…
Welcome to the third world. Whatever will we do when the famine strikes?
This is from a Salon piece:
“They’re so pure, it will never happen”!!????
That is some seriously medieval Puritan magical thinking right there. Right up there with shining light inside the body and drinking Clorox to “purify” the virus. Complete disregard of science.
Implication: People who are getting sick and dying are somehow “impure”?.I.E., they deserve it, or brought it on themselves? Jayzis freaking Christ on a motorcycle.
Pro Tip for WWII veterans, or anyone really- avoid personal meetings with the President. He has now been exposed to Covid19 at least twice, and is probably transmitting the virus. Stay safe!!!
On second look, though, the other comment is even more nuts….
"They've lived a great life."
Is he trying to say they have lived long enough and so if he endangers them it doesn't matter? That's how I read it.
In this Washington Post video, $rump gets right up in the vets faces. The wind blows towards him at first; later, it’s blowing from him towards the WWII veterans. No one is masked. No one is distancing. Pure photo op.
Utter disregard for the veterans’ safety. But what would you expect from the man who dodged a GOP debate by pretending to promote a fake veteran’s charity, then pocketed the money?
Veterans have never been more than a fundraising prop for $rump.
That's exactly the implied meaning.
That's a really insane comment.
Has Dear Leader tweeted yet "fake news"?
