Fabio Wajngarten, Bolsonaro’s spokesman, was confirmed to be diagnosed Thursday. In a matter of concern, the aide appears to have interacted with President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence.

Lindsey Graham is the latest United States Senator to self-quarantine over possible contact with the coronavirus. Senator Ted Cruz is set to depart a voluntary self-quarantine over coming into contact with an attendee of the CPAC conference since confirmed to be stricken with the disease.

Arizona’s Paul Gosar also is quarantining after coming into contact with the CPAC coronavirus patient.

When asked about possible contact on behalf of the President and Vice President with Wajngarten, White House Press Secretary Stephanie Grisham emphasized that their contact was minimal.

Both the President and Vice President had almost no interactions with the individual who tested positive and do not require being tested at this time.”

President Trump himself also stated that the risk was minimal when asked about possible exposure to the patient.

I did hear something about that. We had dinner together in Florida, at Mar-a-Lago, with the entire delegation. I don’t know if the press aide was there, if he was there he was there, but we did nothing very unusual. We sat together for a period of time, had a great conversation.”

Let’s put it this way- I’m not concerned.”

PATHETIC: National Guard Booted to Parking Lot After Democrat Congressman Complained They Weren’t Wearing Masks

The Democrat complained about masks.

New reports suggest that a detachment of National Guard personnel present in Washington, DC for Inauguration duties were kicked out of their spartan lodging in the Capitol to a parking lot after a Democrat Congressman complained that one of the guardsmen wasn’t wearing a mask at a Dunkin’ Donuts inside the Capitol.

Breitbart News has learned that Massachusetts Democrat Will Keating reported that he encountered a soldier at the Capitol without a mask. When Keating told the guardsman to wear a mask, the service member told Keating, “I appreciate my freedom.”

This event reportedly led to the entire National Guard detachment being kicked out of their lodging inside a Capitol lobby to an outdoor parking lot, where they were exposed to freezing temperatures.

Keating has declined to comment on the exchange, with reports suggesting he reported the incident to Capitol Police. This led to the Guard being booted outside as a punishment.

Yesterday dozens of senators and congressmen walked down our lines taking photos, shaking our hands and thanking us for our service. Within 24 hours, they had no further use for us and banished us to the corner of a parking garage. We feel incredibly betrayed,” one Guard member told Politico about being kicked to the curb.

Establishment Democrats had been eager to use the military service members as political props, even after a fiasco in which they were caught trying to purge conservative-leaning Guard personnel for insufficiently loyalty to the Biden government. Governor Ron DeSantis of Florida and Greg Abbott of Texas recalled the detachments of their state National Guards from DC following the second incident of disrespect to the troops, with the former rejecting the idea of FL Guard members being utilized as Nancy Pelosi’s personal servants.
