In an interview with Megyn Kelly, former Fox News superstar Glenn Beck said that he regretted some of his 2009–2011 tenure at the network, which was frequently characterized by fear-mongering, race-baiting, conspiracy-theory-spreading, and general wackiness. “I remember it as an awful lot of fun and that I made an awful lot of mistakes. I think I played a role, unfortunately, in helping tear the country apart,” said Beck, whose particular brand of divisiveness landed him a $100 million radio deal after he left Fox. He added that he wishes he had been more “uniting” in his language. “I thought we were kind of a little more in it together,” he explained, perhaps inadvertently revealing that he’s been a secret Communist all along.
On Wednesday evening, @FirstLadyVA and I were notified that a member of our official residence staff had developed symptoms and tested positive for #COVID19. We both received PCR nasal swab tests yesterday and both tested positive.
Pam is experiencing mild symptoms, and I am asymptomatic. Per @VDHgov guidelines, we will isolate at home for 10 days and then reevaluate our symptoms. I am in constant contact with my cabinet and staff, and will continue working from the Executive Mansion.
As I have been reminding Virginians throughout this crisis, #COVID19 is very real and very contagious. We are grateful for your thoughts and support, but the best thing you can do for us—and most importantly, for your fellow Virginians—is to take this virus seriously.
