Zara Rahim, a former staffer for both Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama, wished death on the president following President Trump’s positive coronavirus test results.

She reportedly followed up with a tweet reading, “I feel free.”

Rahim served as a former national spokeswoman for Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign and worked in the Office of Digital Strategy for former President Obama.

Rahim is hardly the only blue check-mark on Twitter to share ill-wishes toward the president and his family:
