Ted Cruz has quarantined himself, and there are reports that Kellyanne Conway, Ronna McDaniel, and Betsy DeVos all may have been exposed to the CPAC attendee who tested positive for the coronavirus.
Trump is surrounded by people who may have been exposed to the coronavirus, yet the White House is pretending like everything is fine and the President is trying to get the Justice Department to investigate the press for reporting on the coronavirus.
Everything is clearly not fine, as people who have recently been in the same places as Donald Trump are self-quarantining due to fears of potential exposure to the coronavirus.
The situation is spiraling out of control, and Trump can do nothing to stop it.
