Democratic stars lit up social media with vitriol following the President’s announcement of his and the First Lady’s diagnosis late Thursday night.
“Tonight, @FLOTUS and I tested positive for COVID-19. We will begin our quarantine and recovery process immediately. We will get through this TOGETHER!” He tweeted.
Here are their most hateful responses:
Not a Joke
D-List comedian Kathy Griffin hopes the President and First Lady end up on ventilators.
Ok fine. I’ll pray for him and the wife on one condition.
NOT mild symptoms.
And they each go on a ventilator, for at least 5 days.
That’s my best and final.

Hocus Pocus witch Bette Midler tweeted her insincere “thoughts and prayers,” writing that she’s sure Trump is “taking the Clorox cocktail.”
Gee, woke up this morning to learn Donald and Melania have tested positive for Covid-19. How can a HOAX infect anyone? That's a new one on me. I'm sure he's taking the Clorox cocktail, but it's so unpleasant. Thoughts and prayers.

The President’s disgraceful niece, who is not a celebrity, but is exceptionally unpatriotic has no sympathy for her uncle.
I reserve my sympathy, empathy, and despair for those who are sick and for those who have died because they were misled, lied to, or ignored.
Wear a fucking mask.#VOTE

Health and Wellbeing
Former Medium star Patricia Arquette called Trump a “sociopath” that doesn’t care about the health of others.
HE IS A SOCIOPATH. HE DOESNT CARE ABOUT THE HEALTH AND WELL-BEING OF OTHERS. https://t.co/k9Ez5J2ZcU

Actor Patton Oswalt likened the President to a spree killer for shaking hands at campaign events.
Only if Trump, who knew he was symptomatic and still attended a campaign event where he didn’t wear a mask and shook hands, can be viewed as a spree killer. https://t.co/yBGszBWLxt

Not a Laughing Matter
Comedian Whitney Cummings made a joke out of the Trumps’ marriage.
I don’t get how Melania got it – she’s been social distancing from trump since they got married

Still Not Funny
Actor John Cusack posted a still with the President’s health statistics, and said “it deserves a laugh track.”
The Lesser Baldwin
Actor Billy Baldwin, who hasn’t made a memorable movie since 1991’s Backdraft, cracked a Proud Boys/Clorox joke.

Former Community actress Yvette Nicole Brown claimed the diagnosis must be true if the stock market is affected, “Money is the only thing he worships in the world, besides himself.”
AND news of him having it is affecting the stock market. Money is the only thing he worships in the world, besides himself*.
He’d never allow his precious stocks to be affected.
*and maybe Ivanka. ? https://t.co/jd0KrHVXRo
