Ron Johnson 1496897831

Sen. Ron Johnson confirmed to SaraACarter.com Saturday morning that he has tested positive for COVID-19 and noted that he was surprised he was positive, because he has no symptoms as of yet.

He was tested out of an abundance of caution because he was in contact with another Senator who tested positive for the virus. He is the third senator to test positive in recent days, among many other government officials.

On Thursday, President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump confirmed that they had contracted coronavirus, after it was confirmed that Hope Hicks, a close aide to Trump had the novel coronavirus.

By Saturday, White House doctors made the decision to send President Trump to Walter Reed Hospital in Bethesda for treatment for the virus out of an abundance of caution. Trump had mild symptoms, including a low-grade fever and a cough.

He is doing well according to White House officials and sent a Tweet thanking all those who have prayed for his speedy recovery.

According to Fox News, since Trump’s positive test, Senator’s Thom Tillis, R-N.C., and Mike Lee, R-Utah have all tested positive, along with the most recent, Johnson.

Oops! NY Dem Accidentally Slips, Voting Bill Inspired by ‘Hugo Chavez’

Democratic Representative Hakeem Jeffries says in his speech that the infamous elections takeover bill is “inspired by Hugo Chavez.” He quickly said Cesar Chavez, but not before social media had the chance to blast him for the slip.

Republican Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas quickly tweeted the video with the caption: “The Democrats; election takeover bill being inspired by Hugo Chavez is a classic Washington ‘gaffe’-accidentally telling the truth.”

New York Democrat Jeffries had previously said the voting rights bills must pass “by any means necessary” and supported “reforming a filibuster rule that is dripping in racist history.” Even President Biden admitted “I hope we can get this done. The honest-to-God answer is I don’t know whether we can get this done.”

On Friday, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) wrote, “we cannot and we will not rest until this legislation is enacted into law” after the House passed a bill Thursday morning that combined the John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act and the Freedom to Vote Act, which now has virtually zero chance of surviving the Senate.
