“Yeah, Right, Joe!” First Lady Jill Biden Tests Positive for COVID-19 Despite Triple Vaccination – President’s Vaccine Assurances Come Back to Haunt Him

First lady Dr. Jill Biden received a positive COVID-19 diagnosis on a Monday evening, as officially communicated by the White House. However, the situation appeared to be quite manageable.  Here’s how the presidential couple are coping.

Biden, 72 years old, reported experiencing mild symptoms at the time of her positive test, according to a statement issued by the first lady’s communications director, Elizabeth Alexander.

Her plan was simple – she intended to stay at her home in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, as she navigated through this bout with the virus.

In a show of support, President Biden, the 80-year-old head of the household, quickly underwent a COVID-19 test upon learning of his wife’s positive result.

The good news? His test came back negative. The big question looming was whether this would impact the President’s scheduled foreign travels.

The White House, as is customary, did not immediately provide an official response regarding whether President Biden’s international trip plans might be affected.

Nevertheless, the President’s week-ahead schedule, disclosed shortly after the revelation of the first lady’s diagnosis, revealed that he was to leave for New Delhi on Thursday for the G20 summit, with Hanoi next on the agenda for Sunday.

No COVID With Vax?

One former Tweeter couldn’t resist making a joke on President Biden’s previous vaccine assurances.

The President had confidently said that vaccinations offered an impenetrable shield against COVID.

The tweet humorously echoed his words: “Now would be a great time to remind everybody that there is no way anyone can get COVID if they’re vaccinated.” Of course, “Yeah, Right, Joe!” was the prevailing sentiment on social media.

For some, the diagnosis raised questions about whether Dr. Jill Biden’s medical background played a role in her experience.

Some supporters pointed out that she was “triple boosted” and expressed confidence in her ability to recover swiftly. 

Dr or Dr Pepper?

However, there were skeptics who humorously compared her medical qualifications to those of the popular beverage Dr. Pepper.

Others commented that “she might have a PHD but she has no medical training whatsoever”.

School Fears

Dr. Biden’s COVID-19 diagnosis unexpectedly impacted her teaching plans. Just the previous week, she had informed middle school students in Washington, D.C., of her intent to resume teaching courses. 

Change of Course

However, the diagnosis prompted a change of course. Dr. Biden collaborated with NOVA (Northern Virginia Community College) to ensure her classes would be adequately covered by a substitute.

This unique situation underscored her distinction as the first presidential spouse to hold a full-time job in the White House.

Before her diagnosis, the First Lady had met with Live Oak, Florida residents, who had been affected by Hurricane Idalia on September 2, 2023. 

Too Late to Worry?

Ironically, the first lady’s positive test result emerged two days after her visit with the hurricane-impacted communities.

This raised concerns about whether those she had interacted with during her visit would now need to undergo COVID-19 testing.
