President Donald Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., reportedly tested positive for the coronavirus at the start of the week but has been faring just fine since, though to hear his delusional critics tell it, he’s on the verge of dying …
“Don tested positive at the start of the week and has been quarantining out at his cabin since the result. He’s been completely asymptomatic so far and is following all medically recommended COVID-19 guidelines,” his spokesperson told Fox News on Friday.
Trump Jr. is 42 years old (or young, rather), giving him a healthy survival rate of 99.98 percent, according to data from the Centers for Disease Control.
CDC recently updated estimated infection fatality rates for COVID. Here are the updated survival rates by age group:

As a member of the Trump administration, Trump Jr. presumably has access to the same strain of premium healthcare that was used to treat his 74-year-old father.
Early last month, his father — the president of the United States — tested positive for the coronavirus, triggering celebrations from deranged leftists who were convinced without a shadow of a doubt that a positive diagnosis meant his sure death.
Yet the president recovered and was back on his feet participating in photo-ops within days of the diagnosis:

Yet despite all this, the same breed of unhinged leftists who prematurely celebrated the president’s demise last month rushed forth from their burrows of darkness and hate late Friday to celebrate the positive diagnosis of his son.

Michael Rapaport, an obsessively anti-Trump actor known for his profane rants, took to laughing like an unhinged maniac over Trump Jr., whom he described as a “worthless, good for nothing c—sucking frat boy f–k,” contracting the virus.

Affinity Magazine, which describes itself as the “largest teen-ran websites” in the world for “aspiring teen journalists,” declared that it has no sympathy:

Donald Trump Jr has finally done something positive.

Donald Trump Jr. has the same disease as his father and many other Republicans. He also has Covid-19.

I don’t think it’s cool people are on here joking about @DonaldJTrumpJr getting Covid without tagging me.

Every single person seen above aligns with the allegedly “loving” and “tolerant” left politically — and as a consequence, they believe wholeheartedly that the political right is the side of racism, intolerance, hatred, apathy, etc.
But when far-left CNN host Chris Cuomo tested positive for the coronavirus in late March, “hateful” conservatives responded like this:
Best wishes to .@ChrisCuomo and his family. Prayers for a speedy recovery. And prayers and best wishes to everyone impacted by this “invisible enemy”.
— Sean Hannity (@seanhannity) March 31, 2020
Praying for @ChrisCuomo and his family as he deals with his diagnosis. We believe in the power of prayer.

Rooting and praying for a swift & full recovery!

Even Jack Posobiec, a non-establishment conservative journalist who’s repeatedly been smeared as an “extremist” and “white supremacist,” showed love:
Prayers up for @ChrisCuomo

Quite the difference …
To be fair, not everybody on the left celebrated Trump Jr.’s diagnosis. A few left-wingers argued that despite Trump Jr. allegedly being “a horrible person,” his positive diagnosis “is no cause for celebration.”
Jr is a horrible person but if we celebrate him getting covid, we’re no better. If you can’t bring yourself to be the bigger person, just think about all the innocent people he probably infected. This is no cause for celebration.

This will be a difficult ask, I know
Do not mock
Do not taunt
We are better than that
And I want him to know it
Get well soon, Don

Of course, to hear firebrand conservative activist Candace Owens tell it, Trump Jr.’s diagnosis is also no cause for concern:
Wish I could send @DonaldJTrumpJr a genuine “get well soon” message. but like millions of others Americans—he’s perfectly healthy with absolutely no symptoms, despite a test telling him that he’s sick.
Most ridiculous scam in the entire world.
