Biden, 79, got diagnosed with COVID, took Paxlovid and, miracle of miracles, recovered at warp speed. Now, though, he’s been diagnosed a second time with COVID, and it turns out that the Paxlovid is anything but a miracle pill. It seems to be yet another in a long line now of medicines that don’t live up to the hype. What’s so funny is that Biden snarked at Trump, who made vaccines and treatments possible, only for Biden to fall prey to COVID again, something Trump hasn’t done.
Joe initially seemed to recover very quickly from COVID—quickly and ungraciously. We’ve been lectured for a long time about mean tweets, but Joe’s right up there with Obama when it comes to sheer nastiness. In Joe’s case, the most recent example of his vicious personality meant taking a nasty dig at Trump, who went to the hospital for his COVID, while the multi-vaxxed and boosted Joe took Pfizer’s Pavloxid and recovered in the comfort of the White House:
“My symptoms were mild, my recovery was quick, and I’m feeling great,” he said. “The entire time I was in isolation, I was able to work. … It’s a real statement about where we are in the fight against COVID-19.”
He took a shot at his predecessor, Donald Trump, by noting that the former president had to be transferred to the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center when he got the coronavirus in 2020, whereas Biden continued working from the upper floor of the White House.
