Looks like I was only off by about a year, year and a half or so.
President Biden tested positive for COVID-19 Thursday morning, the White House said.
The president is experiencing a trio of mild symptoms, his doctor said in a letter.
Biden’s symptoms are a runny nose, occasional dry cough and fatigue, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, physician to the president, wrote in a letter.
Biden went to bed feeling fine Wednesday night but did not sleep well, Dr. Ashish Jha, White House COVID-19 response coordinator, told reporters.
The president has begun treatment with the drug Paxlovid, which is currently authorized for the treatment of “mild-to-moderate COVID-19.” The antiviral drug has been proven to curb the worst effects of the disease, showing positive results of direct viral testing for those at high risk of progressing to severe COVID-19, according to the FDA.
As you folks may or may not remember, after the DemonRats had stolen the election and fraudulently installed “Joe Biden” in the White House as “pResident,” I predicted it would be announced by no later than June 2021 or so that the mouldering, gibbering old fool had “died of Covid,” initiating a national paroxysm of “grief” that would be every bit as phony as “Joe Biden” himself had always been. Alas, it didn’t work out quite that way, at least as far as my anticipated timetable went. But hey, better late than never, right? More from the NY Post.
President Biden on Thursday tested positive for COVID-19 — one day after giving a gaffe-filled speech that spurred health concerns and less than a week after returning from meetings in Saudi Arabia with killer Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salman.
Biden, 79, is the oldest-ever American president and his advanced age puts him at elevated risk of serious illness or death, though he has received four shots of Pfizer’s coronavirus vaccine, reducing the risk, and is being treated with antiviral drug Paxlovid.
The president’s physician, Dr. Kevin O’Connor, said in a morning statement that Biden “is currently experiencing mild symptoms, mostly rhinorrhea (or ‘runny hose’) and fatigue, with an occasional dry cough, which started yesterday evening.”
Biden’s health was widely discussed on Wednesday when he shocked listeners by claiming during a speech in Massachusetts that he has cancer, using the present tense. The White House hastened to clarify that he was referring to skin cancer from before he took office. In the same speech, Biden referred to male Rep. Jake Auchincloss (D-Mass.) as “she” and said that the city of Glasgow is in England, before correcting himself to say Scotland.
Sheesh. Covid, cancer, asthma, whatever. Sick or unsick, he’s still hardly what people usually think of when they use the word “alive.”
Update! The bottom line.
There’s a reason that all leftist policy is about transferring responsibility from individuals to groups.
Biden may be the least popular president in history—but that’s good for Democrats. Just as it’s good that he thinks he has cancer (or asthma or whatever). If the Democrats can force him not to run for a second term, they can make him the scapegoat for all the suffering wrought intentionally by the leftist agenda. It gives them a clean slate. As long as America is willing to buy it.
I don’t mean, of course, that America might be willing to buy into wrapping this trainwreck around Biden’s neck. They have known from the start, even Biden’s voters have known, that he was never really in charge. They knew that other people were standing in the shadows and pulling the strings. Some Democrats voted for a third term of Barack Obama. Some Democrats voted for a first term of Obama consigliere Susan Rice, et al. But no one, or almost no one, really voted for Biden, who, remember, largely ran his campaign from his basement.
Americans have to be willing to buy into the theoretical possibility that Democrats could win the next election. They know it’s vanishingly unlikely that a majority of the voters in the country would choose the Democrats. It’s even less likely now than it was in 2020. But the question from Democrats’ perspective is not whether they can win, but whether America will accept being told that Democrats have won.
When America wakes up again, after going to sleep election night with Republicans in the lead across the nation, and they’re presented with another “red mirage”—with the result of millions and millions of votes magically appearing at 4 o’clock in the morning in all the most crucial districts—will they accept it? Will they be willing to suspend disbelief, as voters in New York City and Chicago and San Francisco already do, when they are told that despite the disastrous tenure of the Democrats in office, the voters have decided to extend that tenure?
The Democrats can’t hope to win. They can only hope that getting rid of Biden will make a win seem plausible. They can only hope that, when they cheat, Americans will let them get away with it rather than coming after them with pitchforks.
Prognosis: negative. Or so we must hope; there’s a clock ticking here, and time for retrieving whatever we possibly can from the ashes of America That Was grows short. If all it takes to put things right is pitchforks, I’d say the rotten bastards are getting off way light.
Rebound update! About this Paxlovid substance.
Fauci Says He Had Paxlovid Rebound, Worse Symptoms
June 30, 2022 – Anthony Fauci, MD, the chief medical adviser to President Joe Biden, said Tuesday that he went through a “Paxlovid rebound” that can occur after taking the antiviral to recover from COVID-19.
The symptoms that he had after he completed the treatment were more severe than those he had at first from the coronavirus, he said.
“After I finished the 5 days of Paxlovid, I reverted to negative on an antigen test for 3 days in a row,” Fauci said during Foreign Policy’s Global Health Forum event.
“And then on the fourth day, just to be absolutely certain, I tested myself again,” he said. “I reverted back to positive.”
Fauci then began a second course of Paxlovid when symptoms returned, which were “much worse than the first go-around,” he said. During Tuesday’s event, he said he was feeling “reasonably good.”
Aww, that’s a shame. Hate to hear it, I truly do. Bill would like a word about all this.
Embroidering this tinfoil hat a bit further:
If FJB were to succumb to Covid leading into the last part of this election season, it would solve more than a few problems for the Democrats. First, it would short-circuit all the problems likely to arise from further reveals on how thoroughly the Ukrainian oligarchs had corrupted the White House. (Old news. Besides, Joe, he daid.)
Second, it would serve to demonstrate that (whatever variant of covid they would say got him) was still deadly, and would justify heavier restrictions and measures – like lockdowns (which would crater the cost of oil, just as they did the first time around) and maybe even mandated mail-in ballots (which was how the election was fraudulently stolen from DJT, and both GOP candidates for Senator in Georgia).
Finally, President Kamala Harris. And…Vice President Michelle Obama?
Of course, this would all have to be accomplished before the election itself…
A Harris/Obama regime? Oof. The one thing we know for absolutely, positively certain, though, is that they’ll do whatever they damned well please, dare Real Americans to do one damned thing about it, and laugh in our damned faces when we don’t.
