Seems like a pretty damn important thing to have not disclosed.

BREAKING: Notre Dame President Fr. John Jenkins, who was at the WH SCOTUS announcement on Saturday and was criticized for not wearing a mask and shaking hands, has tested positive for COVID-19.
This was just sent out to the campus.
Unclear if he had it during the WH event. pic.twitter.com/2cR4eaVMzb

I can’t sleep, I want to know who is next.
@Pigdog: I know!
I have a list… I have a little list… of people who will not be missed.
I feel like Sanya Stark, listing off the names of the people I’d like to see dead. “Joffrey, Cersei, Walder Frey…”
Odds on Barr?
I must say that I’m taking extreme pleasure in seeing the president of Notre Dame come down with Covid.
They were threatening to expel students who defied mask and social distancing rules to go to college parties.
He flies to Washington DC on the university’s dime to party and celebrate ramming through a right wing Catholic SCOTUS appointee and gets Covid. For exactly the same kind of partying that they threatened to expel students for.
Apparently the campus newspaper is now calling for him to be fired.
@danielx: That would be an even bigger score than Trump. I don’t dare hope.
Jim, Foolish Literalist
I think Chris Christie is next to announce that he’s positive. He must have some symptoms because he tested again after testing negative.
Some thoughts from a Doctor on CNN
They knew. The fucking traitors knew.
Useless Chris Wallace explains
It’s WAY too early for testing to put him in the clear.
Unfortunately same goes for Biden.
Personally if we are rooting, I’d be rooting for Chief Justice Roberts who was there too.
1) suspected timeline on Conway suggests she caught it Saturday, so she would not have been contagious during that exchange with Barr;
2) It seems to have been memory-holed, but Conway was co-campaign manager with Bannon. So 2 of Trump’s 6 campaign managers tested positive on the same day;
3) There seem to be 3 candidates so far for patient zero. Barrett had it at some undetermined point in the summer, which only ended 10 days ago. McDaniel was tested because a colleague had it, not because of this event. Same for Jenkins of Notre Dame.
If he is there for testing and observation because they have better facilities than the White House then fine. If he is truly being hospitalized then something is amiss.
She had it “over the summer.” Last day of summer was the 21st.

also, check this out.

And then there were none.
@Jim, Foolish Literalist: Conway’s daughter says she is angry because her mom was around the house all day without a mask even though she already had a positive result back that she lied about. Christie had a test at roughly the same time as Conway but hasn’t revealed the result. Not evidence, but suspicious.
They can close Gitmo and transfer/release the prisoners, then repurpose it for high-level officials entering forced quarantine, right?

If Amy Coney Barrett doesn’t withdraw over this mayhem then there is no justice.

Being Trump’s campaign manager is like being Spinal Tap’s drummer. ?
There was discussion earlier about antibodies. Head of UCSF has some helpful discussion:
Everyone meet Max Rose, US House candidate from NY 11.
The math is left as an exercise for the reader. Please note any unique factors and show your work.
Well, if a couple of GOP Senators get ill and, Amy Covid Barnett can’t get confirmed, and the Roberts gets it and gets so ill that he decides to retire, then there would be two vacancies to fill come January. Wouldn’t that be a massive plot twist?
That tweet about “all those Democrats not getting this”. That’s really stunning and reflects a new twist of all-too-typical right-wing thinking about covid. Think it through: it seems that that guy honestly thinks that Dems somehow are able control the virus and give it to Trump etc. while being able to avoid getting it themselves. “Why?!”, he wonders. I can’t help but wonder if this guy is actually just one step away from realizing that covid is real, or is stepping even deeper into the looking glass.

I wish the media pundits and everyone else understood the vocab of this virus. If you have the virus you are not in quarantine. You are in isolation.
Trump has dumbed down the US media in regard to covid-19 compared to every other country in the world
If you have been in close contact with someone who has the virus, you put yourself into quarantine. If you have a test & do not have the results, you put yourself into quarantine.
Will Delta ban those three embarrassments from MN? They certainly should, as they violated published DL policy (and all the other pax on the 40% full flight now should isolate and test).
Delta has come down hsrd on mask-scoffs before, including famous people. But we’ll see.
Other tweets today (not gonna look now it’s late!) showed a different GOP Senator with his mask on his throat, and clearly on a Delta flight per the seat color/trim.

Christie is in panic mode, he was at the garden party and the debate prep.
Justice has not been a Republican goal since Eisenhower at the most recent.
Book of Job confirms your suspicions, and adds sadism.
Goku (Amerikan Baka)
Ah, but what does the Book of Trump have to say about it?
Hmm. Stephen Colbert is live tonight. They usually put up a recent, popular show on Friday. Don’t get me wrong, this makes me happy!
Has anyone seen this? They were all inside at an after-party! William Barr only a few feet away from Donald.
@TS (the original):
They were all at an after-party indoors. They should panic.
I haven’t heard of McConnell being at the Rose Garden Nomination celebration. Was he there? If not, why not? Was he not invited? Did he have something better to do? Or was he too smart to hang around Trump administration Covid deniers?
Considering how the campaign has been going, I’m not sure how Stepien being sidelined could be considered a blow to it.
@TS (the original):
It is useful for the media and health officials to get the lingo correct. It is much less important for the general public.
The world is not a freaking English usage test.
Well, he did look whiter during his pre-chopper video.
I think we should at least show some respect for the orifice of the President.

@CaseyL: My dearest wish right now is for Bill Barr to test positive. Since he was interacting with Kelleyanne Conway at the Rose Garden spreader event, I’m hopeful.
Is there not a rule that can keep members of congress out of the capitol buildings if they should be quarantining?
No. I mean, just no. We should not, and there is no need to, show respect. Clever, though.
@Jesse: Don’t bother going too far down that rabbit hole. She’s the wackadoodle who ran against Nancy Pelosi, a couple of weeks ago she decided that The Masked Singer was a plot to get people used to the idea of wearing masks, so the pandemic is fake or something.
broken light bulbs shoved up his ass.
A little something for Amir Khalid:
Herzliche Grüße zum der Tag der Deutschland Einheit!
@A woman from anywhere (formerly Mohagan):
He was at the indoors reception and after-party as well. Not sure if those are two separate events or just described differently.
My foreboding of the evermore unpredictable/chaotic 2020, and sympathies with the families of the infected persons, notwithstanding, I will enjoy the schadenfreude for the moment. They are setting fire to the world, may they self-immolate befor they fully success.
Too bad the list of people here will have access to much better health care than the vast majority of Americans.

@Sebastian: Hope springs eternal!
@Calouste: I was thinking if Roberts gets it, he probably will pass it on to Thomas and maybe even Alito.
@Kent: the White House is very well equipped for medical issues. Going to Walter Reed says something is amiss
They need to ask what his oximeter readings are.
What’s the best way to beat the Russthuglicans with the bell?
Herzliche Grüse zu dir, auch.
So, possible scenario:
ACB gets contacted about the Supreme Court gig shortly after RGB’s death. ACB at that point knows she has Covid, but she also knows that, because of the rush to ram the confirmation through, if she says that, they will pick someone else. So she lies about it, goes to the show on Saturday, and infects a large number of people.
TS (the original)
I didn’t say it was – but as far as the virus is concerned the difference is important – could be why the US cases keep rising.
Isolation when you have covid keeps you away from all other people. Quarantine is a safety precaution – families often stay together.
@West of the Rockies: i’ve been living here in Utah for the past 40 years. That Mike Lee is a piece of shit, pardon my language. If you live in Utah you will see these types. That guy is not good and he is a disgrace to all honest people.
@cliosfanboy: Likely his oxygen levels fell a bit or his fever climbed. Otherwise, being the baby he is, he cried so hard to go, they finally called the helicopter. Your choice – selecting all three is also a correct answer.
A little course correction before starting up again:
October is early spring in Argentina, but this sounds like the composer might have had his NYC days in mind.
@Yutsano: Tag der deutschen Einheit
@Cermet: I agree with you. If he were that ill, he would have been in the helicopter within minutes. Having people watching for over a hour was a nice touch. It brought back memories of watching a empty podium
David ??Merry Christmas?? Koch
@Mary G: He can’t release his oximeter readings because they’re under audit.
