i said to myself the other day:
“If Trump ends up getting that Rona…”
i think social media will all collectively blow up.
the memes and jokes will be one for the record books.
so ^ that is matt gaetz who happens to be a republican congressman.
he ended up getting that coronavirus but…
President Donald Trump had contact with two Republican congressmen before their announcements Monday that they were entering self-quarantine after learning they had been previously exposed to someone since diagnosed with coronavirus.
Rep. Doug Collins of Georgia shook hands with Trump last Friday when the president traveled to Atlanta to visit the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, where officials there briefed him on their response to coronavirus.
Rep. Matt Gaetz of Florida flew on Air Force One with Trump on Monday on a flight from Orlando, Fla., to Joint Base Andrews in Maryland.
The New York Times, citing two people with knowledge of the situation, reported that Gaetz learned shortly after the plane was airborne that he, like Collins, had been in contact with a person at the Conservative Political Action Conference in Maryland in late February who since has been diagnosed with coronavirus. Gaetz then sat in a section of the plane by himself, the newspaper reported.
Gaetz publicly revealed he was entering self-quarantining about an hour after he got off the plane with Trump.
these tweets tho…
While the Congressman is not experiencing symptoms, he received testing today and expects results soon.
Under doctor’s usual precautionary recommendations, he’ll remain self-quarantined until the 14-day period expires this week.

Thank you for this self-quarrantine, however, the Congressman should show some courage and apologize for wearing a gas mask to mock those who were concerned about the virus. https://t.co/OkFBwbO5dX

What do Ted Cruz, Paul Gosar , Matt Gaetz & Doug Collins have in common?
👉They all went to CPAC and belittled the coronavirus “hoax.” 10 days ago, the deadly virus🦠was a Dem plot against tRump🤡.
👉Now, they’re all in self-quarantine.
👉Some “hoax.” https://t.co/HJHK5ljTbT

Days after Rep. Matt Gaetz voted on COVID-19 funding in a gas mask, the virus killed one of his constituents. Now, the lawmaker has quarantined himself. https://t.co/h0o2RDuhf4
