Coronavirus Test for Those Getting Close to Trump and Pence

| April 3, 2020

They’ve developed a coronavirus test that provides quick results. Those wanting to approach the President, or Vice President, would have to take this test. It provides results in 15 minutes. This test checks for “pre-symptoms” or for those who aren’t feeling symptoms but are potential carriers.

From Newsmax:

Starting Friday, anyone who is expected to be in “close proximity” to either President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence will be given a quick COVID-19 test “to evaluate for pre-symptomatic or asymptomatic carriers status to limit inadvertent transmission,” White House spokesman Judd Deere said.

All visitors to the White House complex already have their temperatures taken when entering the building and if they will be in close proximity to either Trump or Pence.

According to CNN, White House officials are declining to specify what counts as “close proximity.” Said one official, the members of the White House press corps who participate in the daily briefings will not have to take tests.

The White House has been conducting temperature checks for those close to both leaders since March 14., CNN said.

Trump took the new COVID-19 test produced by Abbott Laboratories on Thursday and the White House doctor said results were back in 15 minutes. He tested negative with the test, which he’d displayed at a Rose Garden news conference earlier in the week.

    CNN White House reporter Jim Acosta is pretty virulent. He needs to be screened, vaccinated, and spayed.

      ‘Ed are you saying Acosta needs to be spayed v neutered cause he is such a…well…you know …a pussy? Asking for a friend.

      I’m surprised the SS had even let anybody get close to Trump at all during this. From what I had read much earlier, a lot of the people they tested too early before they showed any symptoms and that burned thru a lot of the test kits available. And all of those press people coming back and forth? Who and what all have they been in contact with?

      BTW, welfare check on ninja? Haven’t seen/heard anything from that one in more than a week.

          Ok Cool, it’s all good. Just that, even before the Communist Originated Viral Infecting Disease of 2019 (COVID19) showed up, I knew how quickly things can change. Had some concerns, you know I read EVERY post on here, and click on all the linkys. Some times folks is conspicuous in their absence. If you here from the ninja family mention me to them. Hopefully a spring break vaykay got them social distancing at a lake campsite somewhere.

      Ha!
      …spayed, then given a lemon juice bath.

      IMHO EVERYONE needs to have their local libtards spayed or neutered!

    ok, I have no problem with that at all. Also it’s a good way to get data for the quick tests.

    Too funny:

    “I want to come way under the models. The professionals did the models. I was never involved in a model. But – at least this kind of a model.”

    What do they think people getting close to Trump are, essential like celebrities and basketball players?

  7. Mustang Major says:

    Pres. Trump and V.P. Pence have to stay healthy. If they both go down, it’s President Pelosi.
