Vulnerable Senator Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Sen. Thom Tillis (N.C.) said on Friday that he has tested positive for the coronavirus, becoming the second GOP senator who was at the White House on Saturday to be diagnosed with the virus.

“Over the last few months, I’ve been routinely tested for COVID-19, including testing negative last Saturday, but tonight my rapid antigen test came back positive,” Tillis said in a statement.

The news of Tillis’s diagnosis comes as Washington was upended after President Trump disclosed that he had tested positive for the virus, jolting an already chaotic election year.

Tillis, who said he is currently asymptomatic, is the fourth senator known to have tested positive, and the second member of the Judiciary Committee.

Testing positive means absolutely nothing, considering that the majority of people have been shown to be asymptomatic/immune to this virus. President Trump isn’t sick, he’s presently asymptomatic, and his “hospitalization” is only a precaution. The United States has become a nation of mindless overreacting fools!

Hickenlooper is nothing but, a Liar when it comes to China and this azz hole wanted to be our President. He would have given the keys to the White house to CHINA. We need a leader like President Trump not a wuss.

Testing (+) doesn’t mean you’re sick or contagious, it means you have been exposed and your immune system is now doing what it was designed to do- fight back.
Your creator knew what he was doing.

If people that are sick would just “Stay Home”! Or, if they had to go out, wear a mask. That was the true intention of masks anyway. To keep the sick from spreading their germs beyond their masks. What happened when masks were required for everyone is now you cannot tell who is sick and who is not. Since it has been discovered that the virus is not contagious when there are no symptoms, COVID should in all reality, not be spreading! We have a lot of folks that are feeling sick and have symptoms still going out when they should be staying home. Mandatory mask wearing now gives them the cover they need to go out and nobody can tell they are sick. Stop the spread of any contagious illness…..STAY HOME WHEN YOU ARE SICK!!!!!

Having the scars of Corona Virus will surely be more of a feather in Tillis’ cap than the scars of sexting in his opponent’s. Tillis can capitalize on Corona. His opponent (a Schumer pick) has to hide in shame. Go Tillis!!!
