President Trump's reckless disregard for coronavirus safety threw the U.S. and the world community into turmoil early this morning as both he and First Lady Melania went into quarantine. Both tested positive, but that appears to be only the tip of possible very large iceberg.

As reported by the New York Times, the White House centered outbreak began with Hope Hicks who reported a positive test on Thursday. However, she appeared to be symptomatic on Wednesday and was seen in the company of numerous White House aides, none wearing masks.

A photo showed her walking with Stephen Miller and Jared Kushner as they boarded a helicopter. Following Trump's guidance, none wore face masks.

While details are sketchy so far, the likelihood of a spreading core of infections may send numerous White House aides into quarantine.

Adding to concerns about the president's health are challenges disrupting governance as countless top aides quarantine. If Trump becomes incapacitated, he may hand the reins of government over to Vice President Mike Pence, and if Pence is similarly sickened, the next in line is Trump nemesis, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

This is a breaking story. Expect wall to wall television coverage today.
