White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Contracts COVID, Has Mild Symptoms

Sharing is caring!

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki said late Sunday night that she has tested positive for COVID-19. She issued a statement that said:

“On Wednesday, in coordination with senior leadership at the White House and the medical team, I made the decision not to travel on the foreign trip with the President due to a family emergency, which was members of my household testing positive for COVID-19.

“Since then, I have quarantined and tested negative (via PCR) for COVID on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. However, today, I tested positive for COVID.

“While I have not had close contact in person with the President or senior members of the White House staff since Wednesday — and tested negative for four days after that last contact — I am disclosing today’s positive test out of an abundance of transparency.

“I last saw the President on Tuesday, when we sat outside more than six-feet apart, and wore masks.

“Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms which has enabled me to continue working from home. 

“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.”

In other news, the Dems are on a collision course with their own incompetence and the midterms and 2024 hang in the balance. If they botch the bills they are trying to pass, they will have a hard time making the case electing them is worth it. But even more pressing, If Biden goes ahead and pays illegal immigrants $450,000 the Dems won’t win an election for 50 years.

From The Hill:

Democrats are setting up a massive December cliff as they punt several key deadlines to the back of the year. 

The party needs to fund the government to prevent a shutdown by Dec. 3, and it also faces another debt ceiling crisis that could hit as soon as mid-December, according to an analysis released late last week. 

Democrats also bought themselves more time to finish a bipartisan infrastructure bill and the “Build Back Better” legislation by passing a second short-term highway funding stopgap that will also expire on Dec. 3. 

“Here we go again,” Rep. Peter DeFazio (D-Ore.) said about the decision to kick the can, quipping that Dec. 3 “will be a momentous day around here.”
