Top Biden aide diagnosed with COVID-19, Biden transition team confirms

The only thing President-elect Joe Biden had going for him during the 2020 campaign was the perception that he was serious about coronavirus policy. Unfortunately, his one big idea — national mask mandates — was recently dealt a serious blow.

Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-LA), a senior White House advisor for the incoming Biden administration, tested positive for COVID-19 Thursday, the Daily Caller reported. There are no reports on whether Richmond always wore a mask, but it calls into question national mask mandates as an effective way to erradicate COVID-19.

A rapid response test caught Richmond’s infection, prompting further testing which also came back positive. Contact tracing revealed he had close contact with two people, both of whom have been told to isolate.

Richmond had recently traveled to Georgia to stump for Democratic candidates Rev. Raphael Warnock and Jon Ossoff in the hotly-contested Senate runoff races that will take place next month. He did not have contact with the candidates, their teams, or any other Georgia Democrats on the campaign trail, according to Biden’s transition team spokesperson, Kate Bedingfield.

Bedingfield also said that he did not have any “close contact” with the president-elect during that time. “Richmond’s interactions with the President-elect happened in open air, were masked and totaled less than 15 consecutive minutes, the CDC’s timeframe for close contact,” she wrote in a statement to the publication. “As is our standard protocol after an initial positive test, he took a PCR test on Thursday, December 17th, which also came back positive.”

“Richmond will quarantine for a period of 14 days and will produce two negative PCR tests before he returns to any in-person work in Congress or on the transition,” Bedingfield continued. “The protocols we have followed are consistent with protocols we followed during the campaign to ensure the safety of everyone involved. We take all precautions possible, follow the best guidance of public health officials and remain committed to transparency and information sharing when positive tests do arise. We will continue to model this behavior at every opportunity.”

It remains to be seen whether the left will take the same delight in his diagnosis or blame the patient they way they did when President Donald Trump tested positive for COVID-19 in early October. “Maybe the blessing of all of this, as sad as it is … that the rest of the country has to know that even with the precautions taken surrounding the President, that people are susceptible so that they should ignore the, shall we say, mocking of masks,” House Speaker Nancy Pelosi schoolmarmed the president in a clip tweeted by CNN.

Contrary to what the left would have Americans believe, it’s possible that Richmond and everyone around him were taking the proper precautions and that he got sick anyway. Democrats have treated the virus as mystical plague that only strikes down people at church, restaurants, or anti-lockdown protests while passing over anyone protesting systemic racism.

Furthrmore, Richmond’s illness calls into question Biden’s main thesis that mask mandates are the answer. It  proves that either masks don’t always stop the virus, or that even the president-elect’s closest advisers can’t be bothered to follow his edicts let alone all Americans. How will the entire population of the U.S. fare any better if either is true?

    1. He did win . A ticket to Gitmo after all the truth will be exposed . He can lie all He wants because He knows about all the corruption that was committed . He was a presidential runner and responsible for his parties actions like a Marine over the Men under him . If He did not know , what kind of “leader” does that make him ?? The answer is not a leader .

    2. I agree too! Biden will never be OUR president because you cannot cheat to win anything. There is no honor among thieves. We The People know beyond any reasonable doubt that Biden cheated. Nothing will change that mind set. For the next 4 years the united States will have no President if these Democrats pull off this Mail-In Ballot fraud.

      Moreover, the reputation of the Supreme Court is also on the line here. If the Court refuses to uphold the Constitution, we have no further trust in any of the three branches of government.

    3. BIDEN WANTS TO MANDATE MASKS FOR EVERYONE.GOT NEWS FOR HIM.I HAVE FRIENDS AND RELATIVES THAT WEAR MASKS EVERYDAY THEY STILL GOT COVID-19. SO BIDEN IT DOESNT MATTER IF YOU WEAR A MASK OR NOT.THIS VIRUS IS IN THE AIR JUST LIKE THE FLU. SO STOP FEARING PEOPLE TO WEAR MASKS. ITS NOT DOING A DAM THING BY WEARING MASKS CONSTANLY.BIDEN ISNOT VICE PRESIDENT ELECT YET. THIS CAMPAGIN IS A BIG FRAUD.PRESIDENT TRUMPWILL ALWAYS BE OUR PRESIDENT. THE 73 MILLION PEOPLEINCLUDING ME..GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP AND GOD BLESS AMERICA.

      1. Meanwhile, I’ve only worn a mask under duress in stores. I never wear it outdoors. I visit my aunt & uncle, age 90 & 98 and my mother-in-law, age 101. Hugs and no mask. They all have home health aides — no masks or social distance. Nobody even got a cold, and none of us get flu shots. Covid was an overblown fear mongering hoax designed to control us and to steal an election. I’ve gone to 3 huge Trump rallies where very few people wore masks. We all chanted, sang, and shouted, and I caught nothing.

        1. Excellent Testimony Czerny ,also I think the total number of positives is 20 million but 300 million live like we do . this is a battle for your mind but we are to have the Mind of Christ .Amen.

    4. I say, if they wanna be CCP (american branch) as they have worked so hard on their Frauds for, I say give them California, Washington, Oregon, and a few other states out west, and we keep the area from Texas along the gulf coast to the east coast and the Appelacheans (Let them have New England… We’ll never get the dems out of there). There ya go. Within a few years they’ll have killed themselves off. Faster, with Biden/ Harris at the trigger. Problem solved.

  1. The Chinese Communist press in this country will never allow the truth to be heard about their Manchurian candidate. We need to understand that the mechanism for the Antichrist is coexisting today with the patriots, so when the rapture takes place, they’ll automatically worship the “Beast.” The four year burst of freedom under Trump will become eight or what happened in 2016 was just a cruel cosmic joke.

  2. We got the virus from a person who always wore a mask,she came over to our house to barrow something knowing she has been exposed to it,we came down with it just a few days later,so do mask work to prevent the virus,no,not in this case it didn’t,we survived the virus even though we both had other issues(high blood pressure,lung,heart issues etc.)the idea that a mask that allows air to penetrate will also allow the virus to penetrate especially the way that most people wear them,it has also come out that 90% of covid test show a false positive,and that only about 10% or less who die from the virus,actually died from the Covid-19 virus alone,the CDC have lied about this from day one.

  3. IT IS N O T OVER YET. SO QUIT THE “PRESIDENT-ELECT” $HIT AND WAIT FOR THE FINAL RESULTS AFTER ALL THE DAMN BULL $HIT CHEATING HAS BEEN UNCOVERED AND THE REAL PRESIDENT IS DECLARED !

  4. Just like trying to keep mosquitoes out of your back yard with a chain-link fence! When are Americans going to wake up & realize this is not about disease control, it’s all about mind & people control? Every Dimocrap who pushes this garbage should be required to have a gag included under their “mask”.

  5. Let’s just throw out all mail in ballots and asked the American people to resubmit mail in ballots but this time they are numbered and accounted for by signatures. This time republican representation should be where the ballots are collected and counted 24 hours a day. This is so easy to get to the real TRUTH! Or, we could always lobby on the steps of the Supreme Court until they hear the case. That is what they should have done immediately considering the circumstances and God Forbid the fallout.

  6. How many democrats tested positive for the. virus that the bias left wing media covered up,but rejoiced when republicans like our President got the virus.They tried to blame this on the President instead of the real culprit… CHINA. We know that sleepy Joe is in China’s pocket,so the President needs to act drastically before Jan 20th to cripple China’s economy and exact retaliation for them killing almost 300,000 Americans and destroying our way of life.

  7. Not really about COVID19, but anyone that would vote for a racist like REV . WARNOCK is most likely racist as well. This is definitely not a man of God. He is an opportunist and runs his mouth way too much.

    1. Thou shalt NOT kill.
      Thou shalt NOT steal.
      Thou shalt NOT covet thy neighbors goods.
      Thou shalt NOT commit adultery.
      Thou shalt NOT worship a case god before me.
      Thou shalt NOT bear false witness
      Do you see where I am going?
      Each and every one of these commandments has been violated a number of times by each and EVERY one of the so called Demo crafts who WE have the right to FIRE from their posts as THEY work for US.

      1. You are exactly correct that is roman catholicism common law and natural both are against the 10 commandments . all laws are written to undermine our liberties given to us by GOD .

  8. Biden didn’t win anything, if you crooked SOB’s would do a true count you would find out the truth about the election. Everyone should no that the electronic voting machines were put in as a way for the Democrats to manipulate the votes to look like Biden was winning then all the illegal ballots, duplicate, China and Russian voting.
    There has not been one fair aspect to voting nor the money Biden got from foreign country government agencies. And let’s tell them about big pharma, I would dare bet that over 2/3’s the money Biden’s campaign received was from illegal sources.

  9. Too bad, Biden didn’t get infected. Sure would have been funny since the idiot wears 2 masks at a time. Doesn’t he realize, the masks DON’T stop the virus. The N95 stops down to 0.3 microns in diameter. The covid-19 average size is 0.125 microns. So, the N95 masks, one of the best, does NOT man covid-19 particles.

  10. I have been absent for some time, but now I remember why I used to love this web site. Thanks, I?¦ll try and check back more frequently. How frequently you update your web site?

  11. Good day! This post couldn’t be written any better! Reading through this post reminds me of my old room mate! He always kept talking about this. I will forward this post to him. Fairly certain he will have a good read. Many thanks for sharing!
