Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s Press Secretary, Tests Positive For Coronavirus

President Donald Trump said that Katie Miller, Vice President Mike Pence’s press secretary, tested positive for coronavirus.
Miller is married to Stephen Miller, one of Trump’s top advisers.
Earlier, White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany confirmed on Friday that a member of Pence’s staff tested positive for coronavirus, but she did not identify who it was.
“There is a member of the vice president’s team who is positive for coroanvirus,” McEnany said. “We have put in place the guidelines that our experts have put forward to keep this building safe.”
Many more reporters were wearing face masks in the briefing room, a day after it was revealed that one of President Donald Trump’s personal valets tested positive for the virus. Trump and Pence took subsequent tests that came out negative, the White House said. On a call to Fox & Friends on Friday, Trump said that he was in the same room with the valet on Tuesday but does not recall any direct contact with the staffer, who is a member of the U.S. Navy.

Nervous Republicans See Trump Sinking, and Taking Senate With HimNew York Times via Yahoo News ^ | April 26, 2020 | Jonathan Martin and Maggie Haberman Posted on 4/26/2020, 12:34:14 PM by John WWASHINGTON — President Donald Trump’s erratic handling of the coronavirus outbreak, the worsening economy and a cascade of ominous public and private polling have Republicans increasingly nervous that they are at risk of losing the presidency and the Senate if Trump does not put the nation on a radically improved course.
The scale of the GOP’s challenge has crystallized in the last week. With 26 million Americans now having filed for unemployment benefits, Trump’s standing in states that he carried in 2016 looks increasingly wobbly: New surveys show him trailing significantly in battleground states like Michigan and Pennsylvania, and he is even narrowly behind in must-win Florida.
Democrats raised substantially more money than Republicans did in the first quarter in the most pivotal congressional races, according to recent campaign finance reports. And while Trump is well ahead in money compared with the presumptive Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, Democratic donors are only beginning to focus on the general election, and several super political action committees plan to spend heavily on behalf of him and the party.
Perhaps most significantly, Trump’s single best advantage as an incumbent — his access to the bully pulpit — has effectively become a platform for self-sabotage.
To: John W.In a way this is GREAT news..Trump will work twice as hard.Trump voters will work twice as hard.Trump wins as the Underdog.This is as bad as it gets for Trump.

Has anyone else tired of all the ridiculous propaganda that is being thrown at us in the guise of commercials? We are all in it together, seems to be the theme.

IS THE WHOLE THING A HOAX?!? – At least one other serious illness involved in over 99% of NYC alleged C-19 deaths!A Clearer Picture ^ | April 27, 2020 | Michael Thau Posted on 4/27/2020, 7:28:02 AM by Michal T7,000 alleged NYC COVID-19 deaths have been thoroughly examined and in 99.2% of them at least one other life-threatening illness was involved. How can the virus be in and of itself deadly if it’s killed virtually no one in NYC who wasn’t already dying of something else?

VP Pence concedes: ‘I should’ve worn a mask’ at Mayo ClinicVice President Pence addressed his decision not to wear a mask at his visit to the Mayo Clinic last week during Fox News’ virtual town hall Sunday, telling moderators Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum that he “should have worn a mask” despite the fact that he and everyone around him have been tested for the virus regularly.“From early on the CDC [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] made it clear you wear a mask to prevent you from conveying the coronavirus to other people, and since the president and I are in the unique position… we’re tested often, I didn’t think it was necessary,” Pence said.
