A member of the U.S. Navy who works as a personal valet for President Trump has tested positive for coronavirus, CNN reported Thursday, following a week in which Trump was seen not wearing a mask or social distancing at several events.

I wonder when this valet was previously tested. It may serve to point out that daily/frequent testing of WH contacts does not mean they don't need to wear masks or take additional precautions. Staffers are rarely seen wearing masks when in the West Wing. They believe getting temperature checks daily are enough.

I hope that valet gets better!

As for the masks thing, I have never seen Fauci or Birx wear them. Neither have they "socially distanced" themselves from each other or from Trump at the podium. Clearly it's "Do as I say, not as I do".

A lot of people are getting this virus. Doesn't Putin have it? It's going around.

Exactly. Trump clearly has made the wearing of masks an uncommon rather than common phenomenon in among his staff and appointees. He wouldn't even use masks in a mask necessary photo op environment.

Then again, these people have their own private medical staff, ventilators and fresh plasma full of covid antibodies at their disposal. The rest of us not so much.

I'm practicing the advice of my mother, wherein she told me that if I didn't have anything nice to say, don't say anything.

I hope the valet gets better.

My mother had no issues at all saying not nice things about not nice people. She was a good role model in that regard. But, along the way, I did learn not to publicly express every though that entered my head.

I hope the valet gets better.

Sounds like your Mom did a class A job with you guys. I too hope the valet gets better - and isn't among the 37million people to lose their health insurance in the past few years.

It has been confirmed that VP Press Secretary, Katie Miller, tested positive for Coronavirus. She accompanies VP Pence to most of his meetings and trips.

It's not clear when Miller, who is also the wife to top Trump aide Steven Miller, last interacted with the president or vice president, but CBS News can confirm she was within close proximity to the vice president.

Maybe Stephen Miller will test positive and get muzzled.

I don't normally have a conspiracy theory type of mind frame BUT I do firmly believe that if either Pence or Trump tested positive, they would do anything in their powers to make sure that information did not get released to the public.
