White House claims that source of President Biden’s Covid-19 infection is irrelevant

President Joe Biden has tested positive for COVID-19. Despite his age, the White House seems unconcerned.

White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre cavalierly said it doesn’t matter where the 79-year-old president picked up the virus, Fox News reported. The official narrative is that there isn’t much concern despite Biden’s advanced age and physical frailty.

So far, the White House claims that Biden’s symptoms are mild, including dry cough, runny nose, and fatigue. The same administration that hammered former President Donald Trump for not taking the virus seriously seems to be shrugging off the precarious position the virus puts Biden into.

Dr. Ashish Jha, White House Coronavirus Response Coordinator, was cagey about the potential source of the president’s sickness, given all the protocols and precautions. “Look, I don’t think that that matters, right? I think what matters is we prepared for this moment,” Jean-Pierre stepped in to say.

Still, Fox News contributor Jason Riley couldn’t help but point out the “elephant in the room” they’re avoiding. “The real elephant in the room here is not just that a president has COVID, but that it’s a president who is pushing 80 years old,” Riley said.

He added that “most people get COVID these days – something similar to a cold, maybe a bad cold, and they’re just fine after a few days,” Riley said. “Except if you happen to be pushing 80, in which case you need to take it very seriously.”

“We have a president who’s pushing 80. And while his friends in the media will want to play this up as, ‘Oh, we have to be wary that the COVID pandemic is still with us and so forth.’ No, we don’t really,” Riley added.

“The pandemic is over. And if you get COVID, it’ll probably be like getting a cold. But the issue here is that the president is of advanced age, and he’s showing other signs of his age,” Riley said.

The president was already showing signs of frailty. Now with a COVID-19 infection, the odds that something bad happening goes up considerably — but the administration simply won’t acknowledge it.

The words come just a week after California Democratic Rep. Judy Chu introduced the Women’s Health Protection Act to protect abortion access. The move marked a strong sign that Democrats won’t stop pressing abortion legislation.
In contrast, 13 states have trigger laws that further limited abortion after the Supreme Court overturned Roe v. Wade. Many other conservative states have also added new laws or are in the process of doing so as laws concerning abortion have been returned to individual states.
“Among those who said he shouldn’t run, the most common reason given was that ‘he’s a bad president’ (45%), followed by ‘he’s too old’ (30%), and ‘it’s time for a change’ (26%),” Mediaite reported.
“Just 28% either strongly or somewhat approve of his handling of inflation, while 32% approve of his handling of the economy overall,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
In every meaningful respect, AMP/AJP is nothing more than a disguised continuance of IAP/AMS — stripped of the burden of the Boim Judgement and the ignominy of having been found liable for aiding and abetting the murder of an American teenager,” a 2017 lawsuit
“AMP/AJP are the alter egos and successors of IAP/AMS, and are therefore liable for the unpaid portion of the Boim Judgement,” it added.
Among the Democrats affiliated with the non-profit are Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and Michigan Rep. Rashida Tlaib.
The case involved the murder of David Boim, who was 17 when shot by members of Hamas in the West Bank in 1996.
