It’s been a long and arduous week in Washington DC, as a number of major stories have pummeled the press and the populace.
We’ve had a disastrous first presidential debate in which a great many Americans believe no winner could be crowned on account of the unmitigated mess of the whole thing. During that debate, President Trump made comments on white supremacy that he wasn’t able to clarify fully for over 48 hours.
And then, to top it all off, the President announced in the wee hours of the morning on Friday that both he and the first lady have tested positive for coronavirus.
That news came after it was discovered by Bloomberg that longtime aide to the President, Hope Hicks, came down with COVID-19 and was diagnosed as early as Wednesday night.
In an act of pure and childish hate, this news caused one of Hollywood’s most liberal actors to do the unthinkable.
Tom Arnold shared Hope Hicks’ personal cellphone on Twitter just hours after news broke that she’d tested positive for coronavirus.
Hicks, a counselor to President Trump, tested positive for COVID-19 on Thursday, according to an administration official, and she had traveled with the president a number of times within the last few days.
In a since-deleted tweet, Arnold offered fans an opportunity to speak with Hicks directly.
“Silent thoughts & prayers aren’t enough for national treasure Hope Hicks,” the 61-year-old actor wrote. “She needs to hear them.”
Arnold then posted what he claimed to be Hicks’ personal “cell number”.
The formerly-notable actor has used his disdain for President Trump to bolster his increasingly waning fame in recent months, even going so far as to star in a television series on Vice where her purported to go looking for the infamous “evidence” mentioned in the unverifiable Steele Dossier.
