Double-boosted Joe Biden, who told the world “you’re not going to get Covid if you get these vaccinations” at a CNN event in July last year, has tested positive for Covid-19. Biden is also on record saying Covid is a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
Mr Biden confirmed his “symptoms are mild” and will continue to work in isolation in a video posted on Twitter on Thursday. “Hey folks I guess you heard, this morning I tested positive for COVID,” he said. “But I’ve been double vaccinated, double boosted, symptoms are mild and I really appreciate your inquiries and concerns.“
Former White House doctor Ronny Jackson had a sensible take on Biden’s diagnosis.
Meanwhile, other Twitter users also weighed in with their own wisecracks.
The news came just one day after Biden told an audience that he has cancer, forcing the White House to quickly backtrack on the claim. The remark initially appeared to be a stunningly casual health announcement during a speech about global warming in which Mr Biden described emissions from oil refineries near his childhood home in Claymont, Del.
“That’s why I and so damn many other people I grew up with have cancer and why for the longest time Delaware had the highest cancer rate in the nation,” Biden said.
White House spokesman Andrew Bates referred to a tweet from Washington Post columnist Glenn Kessler, who noted that Biden had “non-melanoma skin cancers” removed before he took office.
However, it remains unclear why Biden chose to use the present verb tense to describe his experience with cancer. Who says “I have cancer” when referring to an experience from their past?
The “gaffe” is just the latest example of Biden’s failing cognitive abilities.
Health issues aside, it’s hard to feel sorry for a man who has been spreading lies about the efficacy of the vaccinations and destroying our Republic with disastrous policies.
