After reports that Joe Biden would not hold any public events following the Republican electoral victory in Virginia, the President finally resurfaced to quickly deliver remarks on COVID-19 vaccines for children when he proceeded to have a bizarre coughing fit.
After it was reported that Joe Biden would not be making any public appearances following the embarrassing election loss in Virginia that saw sweeping Republican victories, the President briefly surfaced to deliver quick remarks on COVID-19 vaccines for children.
In the middle of Biden’s remarks, he proceeded to cough several times into his fist, all while not wearing a mask, presumably sending off clouds of potential-COVID particles into the air around him.
“As soon as the FDA authorized the vaccine, we’ve already sent millions of doses. Excuse me,” Biden said before coughing. “Millions of doses, and millions more to come next week. These doses will be available at approximately, excuse me,” as he coughed again.
“I beg your pardon. I swallowed wrong,” he said before sipping a cup of water.

This comes after White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was diagnosed with COVID-19 earlier this week, saying she saw Biden last on Tuesday.

Despite getting COVID while being “fully vaccinated” Psaki said she was thankful that she got the injections.
“Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms which has enabled me to continue working from home,” Psaki wrote in a statement. “I will plan to return to work in person at the conclusion of the ten day quarantine following a negative rapid test which is an additional White House requirement, beyond CDC guidance, taken out of an abundance of caution.”
While the Biden has not been reported to have tested positive for COVID-19, it would certainly raise questions if the President was sick with coronavirus given that he has been injected with the Pfizer vaccine a staggering three times, frequently touts its effectiveness, and was literally speaking about how he thinks children should get the injections at the time of the coughing fit.
