WASHINGTON, DC – Biden is reportedly still testing positive for COVID after suffering what officials have referred to as a “rebound case” of the ailment, and footage from a roundtable on the Inflation Reduction Act shows that Biden isn’t looking too good these days.
On August 5th, White House physician Dr. Kevin C. O’Connor issued a statement noting that Biden is still coming up positive for COVID but asserts that he “continues to feel very well.”
“The President continues to feel very well. His cough has almost completely resolved. His temperature, pulse, blood pressure, respiratory rate, and oxygen saturation remain entirely normal. His lungs remain clear. Given his rebound positivity which we reported Saturday, we have continued daily monitoring.”
The statement from Dr. O’Connor added that Biden “will continue his strict isolation measures as previously described” and that he’ll “conduct the business of the American people from the Executive Residence.”
From the way in which Dr. O’Connor describes Biden’s current condition, one would assume that Biden is doing well overall. However, by the looks of him during a recent roundtable discussing the Inflation Reduction Act, a different take on his current status could be construed.
Delivering one of his signature gaffes while speaking to a number of business executives, Biden stated during the roundtable, “I must admit in total disclosure I’ve spoken to the chairwoman about the possibility of my being able to buy one of those corvettes that are electric vehicles, that uh, you know when they came out. Uh, I’m not going to be able to do it because I can’t drive a vehicle while I’m vice president – while I’m president.”
Moving past the gaffe of Biden being seemingly confused over which office he currently holds, considering that his propensity for gaffes predates his COVID diagnosis, he generally doesn’t look as well as he’s being described by his physician.
While Dr. O’Connor asserted on August 5th that Biden “continues to feel very well,” he certainly didn’t convey a sense of feeling well just one day prior on August 4th – in fact, he looked pretty rundown. It’s already well known that when it comes to the elderly, COVID isn’t exactly a walk in the park, as the age demographic is at the highest risk of severe illness and death from the virus.
As noted in previous reports, Biden had first tested positive for COVID on July 21st, which happened to come one year to the day from when he boasted about the efficacy of COVID shots during a CNN town hall.
“The various shots that people are getting now cover that. They’re — you’re okay. You’re not going to — you’re not going to get COVID if you have these vaccinations.”
Biden has not only received the standard COVID shots but has also reportedly been twice boosted.
