Hope Hicks got sick. That was the first storm cloud on the horizon.

The President and Melania announced that they would quarantine while they awaited a result.

He offered supportive words for Hope:

And then he made his announcement.

We are reminded of the comparative good health he has been enjoying for a man of his age, without any known risky comorbidities other than the extra weight he’s been carrying.

How did the Left react to the news?

Predictably, the worst instincts of the public have come to the forefront, and many on the left are celebrating the President’s illness. Literally celebrating.

There are enough doing so that ‘Karma’ was the trending term on Twitter shortly after the announcement.

We remind you about the comparatively respectful reaction of the Right upon the passing of several high-profile Democrats in the past year… as opposed to the ‘I hate you and want you to die’ reaction of the ‘you go low we go high’ crowd.

They danced on the grave of a Koch brother, cheering his death.

If you think cheering the injury, illness of death of your political rival is the behavior of the ‘good guys’, there’s not much more we can tell you.

Only that if you’re someone who plays that game, don’t bother lecturing the rest of us on humanity, decency, or morality ever again.
