White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany announced today that she’s tested positive for COVID19 (though she says she’s been asymptomatic). She’s the latest person close to the president to do so.
And, despite their bravery, firefighters are beside themselves:
She was not wearing a mask during a gaggle with reporters yesterday. https://t.co/ckuQzrq66q pic.twitter.com/fqNj7Xnaop

Masked WH reporters often ask WH aides why they refuse to wear masks. We’re regularly told it’s bc they are tested often & have been negative.
Now @PressSec, who didn’t quarantine after being exposed to Hope Hicks & who addressed reporters w/o mask yesterday, is positive. https://t.co/GBgb1KzOMo

But perhaps no firefighter is more upset than CBS News White House correspondent Ben Tracy, who has this to say:
I felt safer reporting in North Korea than I currently do reporting at The White House. This is just crazy.

Why would an American reporter on a press gaggle in north korea be in any danger?

Yes, we all know how warm Kim Jong Un is to people who question him. God rest their souls. https://t.co/JvMDIM74am

Interestingly, this actually reads like the kind of thing that a “reporter” working for North Korean state media would say. https://t.co/fOcBWzt3vo

Why can’t people just say things are bad without going immediately to the most ridiculous hyperbole possible? https://t.co/eHza5dGWv3

Because what fun would that be?
This is probably one of the dumbest things I have ever read on this website and the competition is, as we know, very strong. https://t.co/qGvT6HSX18
