Anti-Trump actor Tom Arnold shared Hope Hicks’ “personal cell” phone number on Twitter just hours after news broke that she had tested positive for COVID-19, according to a report.
In a since-deleted tweet, the 61-year-old Roseanne Barr-ex urged his 260,000 followers to call the president’s close advisor and let her know what they thought of the administration’s response to the pandemic.
“Silent thoughts & prayers aren’t enough for national treasure Hope Hicks. She needs to hear them,” Arnold wrote, according to a Fox News report published Friday morning, sharing a number which he claimed was her “personal cell.”
On Thursday evening, it emerged that the 31-year-old senior counselor to Trump had tested positive for COVID-19 after traveling with him to Minnesota for a rally in Duluth on Wednesday, and to the first presidential debate in Cleveland on Tuesday.
In the early hours of Friday, the commander-in-chief confirmed both he and the first lady also had been infected with the virus.
Arnold, who was married to the “Roseanne” star in the 1990s, has since deleted the tweet about Hicks and in its place, tweeted the Fox News report.
The comedian is an outspoken critic of the president and in 2017 claimed to have tapes of Trump using racial slurs, which have never surfaced.
