The mainstream media continues to beclown itself regarding Joe Biden and his grotesquely failed presidency, and now that has extended to the president contracting COVID-19.
The White House announced on Thursday that Biden had come down with the virus, though officials said that he was generally feeling okay — which is a good thing, by the way.
“This morning, President Biden tested positive for COVID-19,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “He is fully vaccinated and twice boosted and experiencing very mild symptoms. He has begun taking Paxlovid. Consistent with CDC guidelines, he will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time. He has been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone this morning, and will participate in his planned meetings at the White House this morning via phone and Zoom from the residence.”
“Consistent with White House protocol for positive COVID cases, which goes above and beyond CDC guidance, he will continue to work in isolation until he tests negative,” she said. “Once he tests negative, he will return to in-person work.”
“Out of an abundance of transparency, the White House will provide a daily update on the President’s status as he continues to carry out the full duties of the office while in isolation,” she said.
Biden’s Twitter account also assured us that he was feeling alright.
“Folks, I’m doing great. Thanks for your concern. Just called Senator Casey, Congressman Cartwright, and Mayor Cognetti (and my Scranton cousins!) to send my regrets for missing our event today. Keeping busy!” the account posted along with a photo of Biden appearing to be working.

But while the left-wing ‘mainstream’ media constantly complains about how the other side ‘politicizes’ every issue, in fact, it’s their side that does so, as evidenced by NBC News White House correspondent Yamiche Alcindor.
In ‘assessing’ Biden’s illness Thursday, she actually tried to convince viewers that Biden’s handling of his illness is far better than when then-President Donald Trump contracted the virus a month before the 2020 election.
“Yeah, and, think about the fact that we now have two U.S. presidents in a row that have had tested positive for COVID. And I think what we’re gonna see here is likely a different sort of approach to it,” Alcindor said. “Let’s remember his predecessor took off his mask even though it was sort of in the period where he could’ve possibly infected other people. He didn’t want to talk about getting vaccinated at the White House.”
“President Biden, I suspect, just in talking to White House officials, is gonna remind people, yes, I could get it, which means you can get it, which means we all have to be vigilant about this,” Alcindor continued.
“And also this diagnosis really does mean is he’s going to have to really quarantine himself and stay away from people, while he was under pressure to be out on the campaign trail, to be out in the world, to show that he was doing something to Democrats in particular who are saying there’s all these sort of fires out there, abortion politics, all these different things that are happening and voters in particular during the midterm season they need to see you out in the world, they need to make that they feel that you are connected to feeling their pain and now he’s not going to be able to do that,” she went on.
Meanwhile, Trump was essentially blamed for contracting COVID.
CNN’s @jaketapper: “Sick and in isolation, Mr. President, you have become a symbol of your own failures. Failures of recklessness, ignorance, arrogance. The same failures you have been inflicting on the rest of us … Get well and get it together" #CNNSOTU pic.twitter.com/XXA5uC91Ea

It’s no wonder the vast majority of Americans have no respect for the profession of journalism or those who work in the field.
