Well, this is awkward.
The president who claimed on the campaign trail that he would “shut down” COVID has suddenly had a very close encounter with COVID, well after a year after he assumed the presidency.
Of course, everyone knows that Biden had limited intentions of “shutting down” COVID anyway, likely due to his Fauci/Pfizer handlers reminding him of pharmaceutical companies’ profit projections over the next several quarters.
Coincidentally, Pfizer is currently demanding another $5B from the U.S. government, all over the booster shots that Biden demanded as necessary for combatting COVID.
Well, clearly the booster shots have not done what Biden advertised they would do, given that none other than House Speaker Nancy Pelosi has just tested positive for COVID.
Drew Hamill, who serves as Pelosi’s underpaid spokesperson, made the unexpected announcement on Twitter, the preferred communications channel of Democrats.
“After testing negative this week, Speaker Pelosi received a positive test result for COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic. The Speaker is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is thankful for the robust protection the vaccine has provided,” Hamill intoned.
So “robust” she contracted COVID, but no one holds Democrats to standards of logic anymore, never mind facts.
Guess she isn’t socially distancing enough on her private, albeit taxpayer-funded, jets.
Hamill also added that Pelosi “will quarantine consistent with CDC guidance, and encourages everyone to get vaccinated, boosted and test regularly.”
So, in other words, Pelosi is now playing her assigned role in the nonstop Pfizer advertisement, given that Pfizer seems to enjoy especially privileged status with the U.S. government.
Even more interestingly, Psaki claims that Biden was not “in close contact” with Pelosi, despite the fact that Pelosi embraced him (without a mask) and kissed him on the cheek.
Peter Doocy asked a rather obvious question of Psaki, namely, “how can you guys say that President Biden was not a close contact with speaker Pelosi when there’s video of the speaker kissing him?”
“[The CDC] definition of [close contact] is 15 minutes of contact within a set period of time, within six feet,” Psaki responded tersely, “[Pelosi’s kiss] did not meet that bar.”
Ah, that’s nice. So why exactly did Americans have to wear masks while running into 7-11 for all of five minutes?
Does Psaki ever think about the implications of what she says?
Or does she know she can get away with saying whatever, as the media won’t hold her accountable?
Speaking of accountability, what is with all the sudden talk of COVID again?
Gearing up for more mail-in midterms?
After all, the Democrats’ approval ratings are sailing off a cliff, something they’re certainly not happy with.
It’s also odd that Ms. Psaki herself recently had COVID, though she also claims she isn’t in “close contact” with Biden.
Awfully strange, how all these individuals so close to Biden keep ending up with COVID.
Almost as if the media wants a readymade excuse for Biden suddenly falling ill, especially if Democrats start feeling really desperate in the face of looming midterms.
