WASHINGTON, D.C. – By now you’ve likely learned that President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump have tested positive for the coronavirus. The ‘October Surprise’ comes after a close aide to the president tested positive.
We at First in Freedom Daily wish the president and first lady a speedy recovery. The same well wishes would come, from us, and from a wide swath of conservatives if the news had been that Joe and Jill Biden tested positive for the virus.
Many on the Left, though, suffer from a different kind of sickness — Trump Derangement Syndrome — the symptoms of which lead them to celebrate the news of the Trumps viral contraction.

I’m glad I’m not a politician.
If I was I’d have to be wishing @realDonaldTrump & @FLOTUS a speedy recovery instead of thinking they need to go through as much pain, agony, & torture as everyone in the world that has felt the worst of this virus.#Trump #TrumpHasCovid

On this one, unless you are trolling him, give your thoughts and prayers to the Angel of death, not Trump. #TrumpHasCovid

At least some suffering from TDS have maintained just enough self-awareness (but they are very hard to find):
Create in me a clean heart, O God. And renew a right spirit within me. Because the joy I felt about today’s news felt good for a minute but only in the way that peeing my pants feels warm for a minute. And now it’s cold and smells bad and I’m embarrassed. #TrumpHasCovid

Wishing death on the president is not a good look for the Left, but it is entirely unsurprising.
Now, imagine the reactions that will come after the president and first lady emerge in good health, after suffering only mild symptoms, and successfully treated with HCQ.
