Donald Trump returned to the White House Monday evening, took off his mask, and told the country to not be afraid of the coronavirus that had hospitalized him over the weekend.
Less than 24 hours later, it was revealed that top White House aide Stephen Miller has tested positive for COVID19. Miller wife, Katie Miller, had the virus back in May. Katie Miller is also pregnant with the couple’s first child, and works as Mike Pence’s assistant.
Now that the virus has once again come this close to Mike Pence, it calls into question the status of the Vice Presidential debate, still scheduled for Wednesday night in Salt Lake City. Prior to Stephen Miller’s announcement, the VP made a statement saying he would not stand behind plexiglass at the debate, as his opponent Kamala Harris is planning to do.
BREAKING—Now VP Pence’s team is breaking earlier agreement and now *refusing* even a transparent plexiglass divider for the VP debate!

Twitter wasn’t especially sympathetic towards Stephen Miller in light of his dreadful track record during his tenure with the Trump Administration and the other behaviors exhibited by his co-workers.
Stephen Miller’s wife, who is Pence’s press secretary and who has COVID herself a few months ago, was mocking Kamala Harris’s team for wanting debate precautions *yesterday* https://t.co/3dJMu5pWcv

Seriously though, with Stephen Miller getting covid, my deepest sympathies go to the families of….
the 26,000 innocent children that ghoulish fuck threw in a cage.
