Biden Claims He Handled Covid Better Than Trump Because Of Vaccine
Update (1155ET): President Biden on Wednesday said that his Covid symptoms were “mild,” and that recovery was “quick and I’m feeling great.”
“BA-5 means many of us are still going to get COVID if we take the precautions,” he continued, during a brief speech in the Rose Garden.
Biden then promoted Pfizer’s Paxlovid as a “life-saving drug,” adding “If you need it, Paxlovid is at the ready.”
Then, Biden suggested that handled Covid better than former President Trump, who “had to be helicoptered to Walter Reed Medical Center,” because vaccines weren’t available then.
Nevermind the fact that Trump also caught a far more aggressive strain than Omicron. Follow the science much?

President Joe Biden tested negative for COVID-19 Tuesday night after isolating for five days, according to White House physician Kevin O’Connor.
“His symptoms have been steadily improving, and are almost completely resolved,” said O’Connor in a statement, adding that Biden will now “discontinue his strict isolation measures,” but will “increase his testing cadence” in case of so-called “rebound” COVID positivity “observed in a small percentage of patients treated with Paxlovid” – which is what happened to Dr. Anthony Fauci.

“The President continues to be very specifically conscientious about protecting any of the Executive Residence, White House, Secret Service, and other staff whose duties require any (albeit socially distanced) proximity to him.”
Of course, whoever filmed this is probably dead now.

According to the White House, Biden will deliver remarks in the Rose Garden at 11:30 a.m. eastern.
Biden’s Covid diagnosis undoubtedly shocked many (for example, those who drive alone with masks on) based on guarantees he gave the American public in 2021 about vaccines.

No word on his oil-rain cancer diagnosis.
President Biden just said he has cancer.
Is it true?
Or is the Commander in Chief confused?
