Leftists erupted into cheers and gleefully sent death wishes after President Trump revealed that he, First Lady Melania Trump, and White House counselor Hope Hicks all tested positive for COVID-19.

Trump made the surprise revelation on Twitter at 12:54 a.m. Eastern time: “Tonight, FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!”

Mrs. Trump followed up with a tweet at 1:27 a.m. Eastern time: “As too many Americans have done this year, POTUS and I are quarantining at home after testing positive for COVID-19. We are feeling good and I have postponed all upcoming engagements. Please be sure you are staying safe. We will all get through this together.”

Hours earlier, President Trump revealed on Twitter that Hope Hicks had tested positive.

Trump told Fox News host Sean Hannity: “[Hope] did test positive. She is a hard worker, she wears masks a lot. But she tested positive.”

The President added:

“It is very, very hard when you are with people from the military, or from law enforcement and they come over to you and they want to hug you and they want to kiss you because we really have done a good job for them. You get close, and things happen.

“And the First Lady also, we spend a lot of time with Hope and others…You have to treat our people great. You can’t just say, ‘Stay away! Stay away!’ They come up to you, there’s such love with what we’ve done for them. There’s such love. You have to treat our people great.”

Dr. Sean Conley, the president’s physician, released a statement saying the Trumps are both “doing well” and will receive excellent care during their convalescence.

“The President and the First Lady are both doing well at this time,” Dr. Conley said. “The White House medical team and I will maintain a vigilant watch…Rest assured I expect the President to continue carrying out his duties without disruption while recovering.”

Predictably, Twitter leftists erupted with collective exhilaration and cheerfully wished death on the sitting U.S. president.

For the record, the coronavirus recovery rate is 97% to 99.75%, so getting COVID is not the death sentence that many on the left hope it is for Trump.

As an example, British prime minister Boris Johnson tested positive for the coronavirus in March. He recovered shortly afterward and is doing well now.

One Twitter user gushed: “Trump got COVID. I hope he dies.”

Several Trump-haters apparently hope the President doesn’t recover, because otherwise, they’re terrified that his survival will only bolster his image as an Alpha Male warrior.

Filmmaker Mike Cernovich slammed the Washington Post for a tone-deaf tweet that appeared to wished death on the President.

Cernovich noted: “Less than an hour after news broke of Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis, the Washington Post tweeted, “Imagine what it will be like to never have to think about Trump again.’”

Cernovich remarked that President Trump can and will turn this negative development into an advantage reminiscent of Nietzsche’s famous quote: “That which does not kill you only makes you stronger.”

Mike opined that after President Trump recovers from COVID, he will win in a landslide.

“If Trump survives coronavirus, he’s the lead man in a movie and wins by landslide. If not…The suspense has made a Trump-obsessed world even more obsessed.”

“Best thing that could have happened to Trump. When survives, he’s a hero.”

Actor James Woods summed up the sentiments of millions of Trump supporters.
