White House reports that he is experiencing "mild symptoms". Melania is also experiencing symptoms, as is Hope Hicks.

Chris Christie says no one was wearing masks during debate prep with Trump.

    "No one was wearing masks in the room when we were prepping the president," he told ABC's "Good Morning America," after Trump announced he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19.

    "I was at the White House from Saturday afternoon through lunchtime on Tuesday, on and off during those days. I was tested every day I went to the White House," Christie said. "The last test I took was on Tuesday morning and I was negative, and I'm going to get a test this morning to see if that status has changed. I feel fine, I don't feel any symptoms at this time, and I obviously hope it remains that way."

    Christie said there were about five or six people helping with debate prep, including Trump's personal lawyer, former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani.

Christie and Giuliani might get it too.

That is a long time and a lot of talking indoors. The fact that they are all feeling symptoms this early (seems like all tests were negative on Tuesday) could suggest that they all got a significant dose of virus. I'll have to dig it up, but there is evidence that the size of the dose could play a role in the course and severity.

I don't buy the conspiracies that Trump doesn't have it. He just played roulette long enough.

Herman Cain and Boris Johnson also had "mild symptoms" for a few days, maybe a week. Shit goes down hill fast for many of these patients. Obese septuagenarian is not a great demographic to be in. Don't know if he's hypertensive, but if so, we could all be watching his funeral by election day.

Fuckin' Ronna McDaniel has it too, which is the piss icing on the shitcake.

Christie's fat ass is positive. The most Trump thing that could happen is that he recovers fully while Herman Cain, Chris Christie, and Rudy Giuliani all die.

I head Christie tested positive for Carl's Jr. earlier in the evening.

Yeah, I’m convinced he definitely has it. He wouldn’t go to Walter Reed if he didn’t. Too much of a sign of weakness. He doesn’t do that. He has it.

He's apparently headed to Walter Reed. Echoes of BoJo's brush with the 'rona.
