Mastriano Tests Positive for COVID-19 at Meeting With Trump

A Senator who became a face of the opposition to coronavirus restrictions in Pennsylvania has been diagnosed with COVID-19.

State Sen. Doug Mastriano (R-Adams) tested positive during a meeting with President Trump, according to the AP.

The AP reports that Mastriano was made aware of the positive test while he was at the White House on Wednesday. He “abruptly left” the meeting after being made aware of his positive COVID-19 test. His son and son’s friend also tested positive. The meeting reportedly continued after Mastriano and the others who tested positive left. 

Earlier that day, Mastriano and other GOP lawmakers held a public meeting to discuss the effort from the Trump campaign to challenge and overturn president-elect Joe Biden’s victory in the commonwealth. Mastriano and others were maskless at the public meeting.

According to the AP, a spokesperson for the Senate Republicans declined to comment on the report of Mastriano’s positive result, describing it as a “personnel matter.”

Mastriano has emerged as one of the names being speculated to launch a bid for Governor in 2022. 

Mastriano is reportedly the seventh member of the Pennsylvania General Assembly to test positive for COVID-19. 

Last Monday, state Rep. Doyle Heffley (R-Carbon) announced that he, along with two family members, tested positive for COVID-19. A week prior to Heffley’s positive result, state Rep. Jim Gregory (R-Blair) announced that he tested positive for COVID-19. Just two days prior to Gregory’s announcement, House Minority Whip Jordan Harris (D-Philadelphia) announced that he tested positive for COVID-19

In October, State Rep. Paul Schemel (R-Franklin) announced that he tested positive for COVID-19. Senate Minority Whip Anthony Williams (D-Philadelphia) announced that he tested positive for COVID-19 in July. State Rep. Andrew Lewis (R-Dauphin) was the first member of the General Assembly to announce that he tested positive for COVID-19 in May. Lewis made the announcement a week after his positive result, although he said he immediately began self quarantining upon confirming the result.

    What a dipshit he is.

    He’s also been undermining Democracy by posting the 1.8 million PRIMARY MAIL-IN BALLOT requests and claiming there is something fishy because 2.6 million voted by mail in the GENERAL election.. despite public information that 3 million requests were made for the General.

    Deliberately trying to conflate these numbers to pretend there is fraud should be a disqualifier for him being in elected office.

  2. Senator Doug Mastriano says:

    Covid is a hoax and it doesn’t exist. There is no investigation into what is actually happening. It is fake news by Democrats. We need to stop this…oh. wait. There are experts from private, public, government, and all over the world who have evidence.

    They are liars! Let’s have a hearing where witnesses provide hearsay and unfortunate situations as evidence of a vast criminal conspiracy.

    I dont know what facts are.

    Not a single reporter in all of PA has made the effort to see who supplies the covid numbers to Dr Levine, how the results are gathered and what objective criteria are used to distinguish covid deaths from deaths caused by natural or other medical causes.

    Meanwhile, thousands of Pennsylvania families and small businesses have suffered, some destroyed, by the Department of Health edicts.

    To just accept without question and simply report the unverified numbers which continue to terrorize people, especially children, is an example of lazy reporting that hurts people.

    Mastriano is a phoney baloney. That being said, I wish him a full recovery.

  5. Tom Folly says:

    This jizz clown looks like an actual penis.

  6. The Huckabeast says:

    This guy is a egotistical CLOWN and should be disqualified from running for governor in 2022. All the Trump idiots are begging him on Facebook to run. His nonsense in trying to undermine the 2020 election is going against his oath of office. He is NOT for the Constitution he is for Adolph Trump. Mastriano’s oath is to Trump over country and her only bleeds ORANGE.

  7. Doug Mastriano’s nasal swab from the covid test says:

    He had a lot of boogers in his nose and his breath smelled. I’m so glad I was thrown away immediately following this procedure. Let’s walk as free men!

  8. Lynn Maxwell says:

    I agree with you.

  9. gulag Pittsburgh says:

    Here’s hoping Mastriano infected all the other horseshit PA GOP legislators at the WH meeting with Trump to try to overturn the people’s vote.
