Trump campaign and personal attorney Jenna Ellis is the latest in the president's orbit – one of literally more than 50 – to test positive for coronavirus. As the news broke, CNN's John King chastised the attorney, who has been seen repeatedly without a mask.

Ellis informed the White House, Axios notes, "stirring West Wing fears after she attended a senior staff Christmas party on Friday.

"On CNN, anchor John King reported the news, commenting her contracting the virus was simply, "ramifications of reckless behavior."

Ellis's co-attorney Rudy Giuliani was admitted to a D.C. hospital Sunday after he too tested positive for the virus that causes COVID-19.

"People brought their families," a senior White House official who attended the party told Axios, after learning of Ellis' positive diagnosis, as if attending was a good idea sans Ellis' attendance, which it was not.

White House staffers were angered with Ellis even before learning she has COVID-19.

"She had the nerve to show up at the senior staff Christmas party knowing everyone was furious with her for constantly stirring Trump up with nonsense," a senior administration official said.
