President Trump announced at nearly 1am on Friday morning that he and the First Lady had tested postive for COVID-19.
Naturally, the mainstream media freaked out completely. CNN headlines suggest the diagnosis has thrown our country “into fresh upheaval.” The New York Times suggested the president should drop out of the presidential race. Other headlines suggest the “world shudders” at the announcement.
There’s no lack of drama when it comes to the mainstream reports.
But when it comes to an issue like this, it’s important not to get hysterical. We should stick to the facts… but that’s a difficult task for the fake news.
Here’s your top 3 need-to-know things about the diagnosis and what it means for the country.
