The announcement that President Trump and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for COVID-19 jolted millions of Americans as they woke up Friday morning.

As the commentary section went to press early Friday, we realized it was important to put politics aside and wish them both a speedy recovery and time to heal. There’s only a few weeks until an extremely important election in our nation’s history where we’ll decide who leads our great country for the next four years.

We can focus on the issues — the pandemic now being even more front and center — another day.

For now, let’s take a moment to think about those who have been infected by this horrible disease — including the president and First Lady — and recognize the importance of finding a vaccine and taking the proper precautions to keep everyone safe.

As of today, Typhoid Don's doctors won't even acknowledge when is the last time he tested positive. His shady doctor hides details on the timeline and says 72 hours one time, then tries with a smirk to change it up when he's caught flat-footed in his lies and deceptions. That doc should lose his medical license and be banished from Walter Reed, period. There are no ethics there to be had.

Trump is euphoric, he now recommends the COVID - 19 virus for everyone. Somewhere, in his mysterious mind, he knows he is losing the election and is facing criminal charges.  Best that everyone gets the virus as he zips off to Russia to visit his buddy, Putin.

Trump has the full blame finger pointed at him for all those infected by his behavior. Now his press secretary is infected too...so that's 11 now. Not unexpected when you have a narcissistic nitwit in power who just loves to flout any and all common sense. I don't mind he recovers, but he should be personally held responsible for the medical bills and consequences of anyone that got sick from his asinine rallies and gatherings. The ultimate accountability would be for him to get out of office by vote, and to finally have people show exactly how much that he is loathed for his rancid behavior.

Keep playing the video of Trump mocking the disabled, over and over in your mind.

If Biden were ill, Trump would be making fun of him at every opportunity.

What goes around, comes around.

Yep....and you know....he will never, ever learn from this. If he survives, he will just add on to his puny mind-set that he's the best...and pre-ordained to be king.

I wish him recovery, but not a speedy one. I want him to FEEL this. I want him to know what those who are and have been sick, and those who have lost one of the 208.000+ loved ones, feel. I doubt he'll learn from it, but he does need to FEEL it.

Dear FNP, Thank you for not invoking prayers. In the event, I am certainly directing thoughts toward the president and his current wife.

I wish him all of the best socialized medicine that our tax dollars can buy and that we all deserve.
