By now, you’ve heard the news that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have both tested positive for COVID-19. While we take no joy in their – or anyone else’s – coronavirus diagnosis, we have to admit, it’s mighty ironic that the man who once claimed the deadly virus was a hoax now has physical evidence that it’s not.
While we wait to see how this situation unfolds, we couldn’t help but check out Twitter to take the temperature of the populace upon the announcement of this unprecedented news. We wish everyone suffering from coronavirus well, but Twitter doesn’t…
These are the best tweet reactions to President Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis.

I like the presidents who DON’T get covid.

President Trump has been cured after the Covid-19 Virus committed suicide after a “hellish night inside that blob”

That poor virus got sucked into his body and is now trapped there. How can it escape? He wants to use it as a prop. “See this China Flu? I BEAT IT! Just like I’ll beat Biden! They’re both a hoax!” My thoughts and prayers, too, are with Covid-19. https://t.co/ANQWaNV7mR

Trump is in a tough spot because he doesn't believe in god or medicine.

Trump is in three high risk groups for Covid:
– He’s over 65
– He is obese
– He is below the poverty line

I think a lot of swing voters were just waiting to switch to the the first candidate who got COVID.

Here’s an interesting irony: Everyone around Trump who gets #COVID19 may be in big trouble if they get their wish & gut Obamacare. Why? In the future, COVID will likely be classified by private insurers as a pre-existing condition. I’d know – I used to be an insurance exec. (1/8)

the very rich are different from you and me: they get exposed to covid by the presidenthttps://t.co/GyRonr1prr

If you’re more offended by jokes than you’re offended at Trump mingling w/ppl at Bedminster after he knew he was exposed to Covid, you’re probably a Trump supporter.

Maybe “wishing death of someone” includes legally inhibiting their ability to get low-cost medical care, or forcing them to toil in hazardous conditions under COVID, or letting people die from lead poisoning in the tap water.

What do you call…
A hot take on Trump’s Covid? A fever take
A hot take on a superspreader event? A spit take
A famous People of Praise handmaid with Covid? A head ache

Wouldn’t it be an incredible coincidence if Trump had a miraculous recovery from his new COVID-19 “vaccine“ just in time for Election Day?

If anyone gives you shit for joking through a Republican’s COVID diagnosis, send them to me.
