President Donald Trump won’t have a Chief of Staff for two weeks after Mark Meadows, a North Carolina Republican Congressman and top Trump ally, has just self-quarantined over fears of exposure to coronavirus. Trump fired Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney on Friday, pulling Meadows out of Congress.
Meadows has already been tested once and that reportedly came back negative, but multiple, successive negative tests are required to be certain an individual is free of the COVID-19 virus.
Spokesman for Mark Meadows says he may have encountered coronavirus victim at CPAC. Says he is quarantining at home until Wednesday but has already tested negative for disease.

Meadows is an anti-LGBTQ racist Tea Party birther who promised North Carolina voters if they elected him to Congress he would send President Barack Obama back “home to Kenya.”
Some on social media noted that Meadows was able to get tested right away, but regular Americans believed to have the coronavirus have been blocked by the CDC from being tested.
No symptoms but he gets a test. Figures.
