Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt has COVID-19!

Late last night, the Ogle Mole Network lit up with dispatches that Oklahoma Governor Kevin Stitt had tested positive for COVID-19. The tips came from solid sources, but was impossible to confirm on record, so we went with this:

Well, I guess you can say you (kind of) heard it here first!

Earlier this morning, Kevin Stitt officially announced during a hastily organized health department Zoom call that he has indeed tested positive for COVID-19. Yeah, that’s right. The tough-guy governor who seems to take joy in defying public health measures that could help slow the spread of the virus, like social distancing and wearing facemasks, has tested positive for the virus. Say it with me now – Imagine That!

Obviously, it’s a bit difficult not to feel a bit of schadenfreude with all this, but as we know, Coronavirus is a very serious, even deadly virus. Hopefully the Governor only has a mild case, and doesn’t end up in one of Oklahoma’s near-capacity ICUs. We wish him the best, and can’t wait to make fun of him when – or if – he fully recovers.

Stay with The Lost Ogle. We’ll keep you advised.

  1. I don’t know whether to pray or cry. Pray he recovers quickly because Matt Pinnell, former cast member of Glee, becomes Governor. Then I’ll cry.


    1. We don’t impose on Oklahomans rights by requiring a mask.


      1. And that’s a big part of the problem. We’re all about “rights” and “freedoms,” and not so much about responsibility.


      2. We trade freedom to not wear a mask for the right to infect people and possibly kill them with our actions. Is that OK?


      3. Self serving idiot!


      4. Freedom=Selfishness


      5. Protect your right to impose a death sentence on others. Smart guy. Very impressive. Well thought out. Lumpy Hannity has CULTivated you very well.


  2. I heard it first at The Hill, a national politics-oriented website. The Tulsa World has the story too. There are already some comments about it on the previous TLO article.

    I was struggling with my thoughts about schadenfreude, but I second the sentiments in Patrick’s next-to-last paragraph.


    1. My take is a little more basic. Kevin chained himself to a turd. Research shows most things chained to a turd don’t fair very well.


  3. He may have directly exposed Elon Musk. The time frame matches up. I guess that’s the Oklahoma Standard for business incentives.


    1. Or Elon Musk exposed Stitt! LOLOL


  4. As a fellow human, Oklahoman, and American I hope he recovers and I hope his family is safe.

    No joy or satisfaction in this news.


    1. Are you kidding? Let’s be honest. MAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!


    2. I just wish he’d thought about my family and I when he was begging Oklahomans to get out there and spread. So, I’m sorry. Anyone who promotes killing others even if out of stupidity gets no sympathy from me.


  5. Karma IS a bitch!!


  6. He said he found out at 12:30pm Tuesday but didn’t announce it for 23 hours. Did he continue on his day meeting with people, or did he go home and quarantine himself as he suggested that everyone else should do?

    I found his comment about being the first Governor to test positive very odd, almost like it was some badge of honor or something.


    1. I think every Republican governor was offered extra “knee time” in front of donald if they could prove they could still work while having COVID.
      It doesn’t matter. COVIDs beaten. All official statistics on order from the donald are to be reported to Alex “bobblehead” Azar at HHS and taken from the world respected CDC. Just as if you don’t test there’s no COVID if a bobblehead is in charge of the numbers, the numbers will drop and fast. It’ll all be good, stat wise, by August.
      Then donald will move on to altering all statistics we use for everyday life, like trading, hedging, banking, trading stock, you know just the small details.
      The very statistics that help fuel our 20+ trillion dollar economy are going to be altered to suit the donald.
      Appears now more than ever if you don’t use just some good old common sense you’ve got a really good chance of catching the COVID. stitt just proved it.
      Shocking you could attend donald’s COVID Corral in Tulsa with no masks and screaming slobbering hillbillies from all over the Midwest foaming over each other like school children over Kanye West in the middle of a massive outbreak and get sick. I bet he sent his daily clorox consuming video to donald too.
      Somewhere I read leaders are supposed to lead. Kevin was asleep during that part of class.


      1. Can’t lay all the blame on Stitt. The class WAS taught at Trump “University”.


  7. We all gonna get it sooner or later boys.


    1. No, we’re not, you’re an idiot for believing that.


      1. Triggered man strikes again.


        1. Wow, it’s incredible how obsessed you are with me. Do you have screenshots of my posts up on your wall? Do you have notifications set up to text, call, and email you immediately if I post something? Do you want to suck my dick? Do you want to stick your head up my ass so far you can’t see sunlight? Do you want to lick my boots? Oh, and you’re falling down on the job, you’re only using one word out of the massive right-wing-bullshit name-calling cookbook, c’mon, you can do better than that. You should really get your obsession with me checked out. Seriously, though, in what world does posting that we will not all get the coronavirus in response to somebody saying we will means I’m triggered?

          In the meantime:

            1. Damn proportional fonts, be nice if there was an edit button, Patrick.


            2. I like the way you’re making a fool out of yourself without my assistance.


            3. Nope, not making a fool out of myself, proportional fonts are the enemy of ASCII art. It looked right in the window it gets typed in, but then it gets posted and it’s not right, so I can’t see it until it’s posted, and since there’s no edit button if it’s wrong, it stays there. Not too hard of a concept to figure out, if you’re older than about 10, and has nothing to do with being a fool. If Patrick had an edit button or would allow pics to be posted, it would look quite a bit better. But I imagine you get my sentiment just by my words…


            4. I like how you’ve trying to show off your tech prowess and completely ignoring the fact this is hosted on wordpress…


            5. Gosh, is that what wp.com is? Had no idea, thanks *so much* for enlightening me.
              Doesn’t matter what platform it’s hosted on, proportional fonts don’t work with ASCII art, and it should never look like one thing in the text box, then another when you post. And even WP has an option for an edit button.


            6. Give this guy an edit button, please. I’m getting tired of trying to scroll thru his posts…


        2. You should know about making a fool of yourself, you’ve done it enough times.


          1. The man who asks a question is a fool for a minute, the man who does not ask is a fool for life.


            1. And a troll is always a troll.


    2. Sadly, I must agree with Soonerdog. The virus seems to be so highly contagious that the only hope for not getting it sooner or later is the wide availability of an effective vaccine.


    3. Unless and until there is a cure or a vaccine you are probably correct.


      1. Brian called you an idiot.


        1. To be clear, since you’re replying to Option a, I called Soonerdog an idiot.


      2. Vaccine? Stitt? He or his children? ??????


        1. Good point. They’re all doomed.


  8. Perhaps James Lankford will be the only top dog Oklahoma repubican to escape as he was the only one to wear a mask at that rally.


    1. That rally was on 6/20. Median incubation for corona is 4-5 days from exposure (with up to 14) per cdc. Perhaps that mask you have on is restricting that vital oxygen flow your little blonde brain needs so much.


      1. I’m liking all the blonde-brained anti-science downvoting my post is getting. Brang it!


        1. The only thing your posts bring are the fact there’s a true childlike idiot posting in here using the ViX handle.
          Fairly typical goper wanna be.
          Your Mom is going to be home for lunch soon. Better get off the computer.
          Maybe you could use your time this afternoon sweeping the garage to come up with an actual gop political thought that makes more sense than drinking clorox to cure COVID?


          1. Z has to stand for zero, because that’s exactly how many fucks I have left to give you.

            P.S. Great job on getting here in time today. Hats off to Mike from Tulsa.


        2. Trump’s Blonde isn’t he?


          1. You guys need to get together and make up your mind on what color his hair is, once and for all.


            1. Gray. Whatever is left of it.


  9. 1) Thanks for spelling schadenfreude correctly.
    2) Maybe this will come up on the BBC, paired with a pic of the cheeseburger governor.


  10. Thoughts and prayers…that gov alfalfa suffers a long excruciating, miserable time. What?? The moron doesn’t care about anybody else so why should anybody care what happens to him. I’m thinking he’s lying about this too, hoping for some sympathy from the FAT ORANGE TRAITOR. Hate to tell the idiot but sociopaths don’t show or even realize sympathy. IMAGINE THAT!!


    1. Thank you for clarifying the nature of your character.


      1. Did you expect anything less from of a fat-shaming homophobe who wishes painful death onto others?


        1. How could I be a fat-shaming homophobe ? I’ve never met you in person! That’s probably real lucky for you!


          1. au contraire, sweetie.


  11. He doesn’t even know how he got it. That’s the biggest issue he keeps trying to ignore. “We have flattened the curve” and “we are good place for hospital capacity.” If he doesn’t even know where he got then its obvious this thing is out of control. If we don’t know who is sick and spreading it then there’s no way we in control of anything. Active cases are going up everyday and he sits back and says “we’re fine.”


  12. Now, if he can only pass it on to his buddies, Donald J. Trump and his entire family, the world will be a better place.


  13. #OklahomaStandard first of all. My prediction is now that he has been infected, once Kevin pulls through he will mentally think he’s invincible and still not wear a mask. He will also tout that it’s “not as bad as the flu” therefore putting the population at large more at risk because we can’t really say belief in science and facts is on our side in this state.

    In the press conference he seemed just as smug and indifferent to the crisis as usual. I was surprised that none of the journalists asked how the rest of his family was treating his sickness. Are they being quarantined as well? Or are they walking around in public knowing that they have been in contact with an infected individual and could possibly be spreading it themselves. Are they all licking spoons Kevin has used to hopefully “vaccinate” themselves from the Rona (even though they are known anti-vaxers).


  14. What was that line the late, great Malcom X said about the chickens coming home to roost?


    1. What was the line he had about white liberals?

      P.S. I tend to agree with him on that.


    2. That’s the first thing that I thought when I read the news.

      From another source that may appeal to more Oklahomans: “Whatever a man sows, that also shall he reap.”


  15. What does it really matter?
    Take precautions, but don’t go bananas over everyone.

    Rid this country of Trump and let’s get back to less divisiveness.


  16. As a teacher it bothers me that people who test positive will just turn around and send their kids to my class. I’m imagining that gov. Stitt won’t be sending any of his kids to my public school, so I have that going for me. It’s best to social distance from nut jobs like Stitt anyway… Covid or no covid.


  17. I certainly hope he makes a full recovery. Still…


  18. Shouldn’t have taken the test. If you don’t test, you don’t have it.


  19. Is it really so bad to wish ill upon someone like Stitt? His actions impact millions. Conservatives in this state are encouraged to not follow life-saving CDC guidelines partly because of the governor’s actions during this pandemic. If Stitt falls terribly ill and/or dies as a result of this infection, it is possible that would be the wake-up call that many conservatives in this state would require to actually begin taking COVID-19 seriously. That could end up saving lives in the long run.


  20. Bullstitt-19 1% Covid 99% narcissism


  21. Let me see: HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.

    If you don’t want to get HIV, you can and should take certain precautions.

    There’s another virus, COVID-19. If you don’t want that virus, you can and should take certain precautions.

    In the case of HIV, few people seem to have a problem doing what’s necessary to avoid getting it. Sure, there are some dumb-asses out there who don’t follow the program, but they’re the kind who could break a steel ball with a rubber hammer anyhow, so whaddya gonna do? (ANSWER: die, I guess.)

    In the case of COVID-19? Quit telling me to wear a mask, because FREEDOM!

    I guess some viruses are scary, some ain’t. I mean, if you’re a dumb-ass.


  22. Don’t be a dumbstitt. Wear a mask.


  23. At least the state has a stockpile of that malaria medicine Trumps touts. Kevie bought it and he can use it personally.


  24. To all,
    Is there any chance he is making up the + test for the ‘rona? I’m not certain we can know 100% if he is being honest. I’m thinking a positive test result would have some PHI and wouldn’t be the kind of thing he could share even if it were true. It wouldn’t be the first time a politician told a falsehood and won’t be the last.


  25. I’m sick and effing tired of hearing, “In these uncertain times.”There’s absolutely NOTHING uncertain about them…unless you get your medical advice from the biggest know-nothing on the planet, which Stitt, Inhofe, and Trumpers everywhere line up to do. And, of that… I’m CERTAIN!
