President Joe Biden, who was double vaxxed and got two boosters, once again tested positive for Covid-19 on Saturday and will restart his isolation.
The White House Dr. Kevin O’Connor said that Biden isn’t feeling any new symptoms and “continues to feel quite well.”
The president took to social media to lie to the American people by, among other things, saying, “This happens to a small minority of folks.”
“Folks, today I tested positive for COVID again. This happens with a small minority of folks. I’ve got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me. I’m still at work, and will be back on the road soon.”
Folks, today I tested positive for COVID again.
This happens with a small minority of folks.
I’ve got no symptoms but I am going to isolate for the safety of everyone around me.
I’m still at work, and will be back on the road soon.

I just want to say if a horse craps anywhere in the continental United States, within hours, Joe Biden will find a way to step in it.
So Biden said only a small minority gets infected twice so close apart. Unfortunately for Biden, a new report revealed that up to 40 percent of patients given Pfizer’s Paxlovid get reinfected with COVID. Forty percent is not a small minority. It’s nearly half.
“As described last week, acknowledging the potential for so-called ‘rebound’ COVID positivity observed in a small percentage of patients treated with PAXLOVID the President increased his testing cadence, both to protect people around him and to assure early detection of any return of viral replication,” Dr. O’Connor said.
Dr. Marc Siegel, a Fox News medical analyst and professor of medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center, said that this news is really a good look for the president.
“Not a good look for a president who talks about mandates. He has played too loose with this,” Siegel said.
“Paxlovid rebound for Biden is not a surprise. I was surprised when he ended quarantine after 5 days even with two negative tests because he still clearly had mild symptoms including nasal congestion,” Siegel said. “What I think happens is that the Paxlovid stops the virus from reproducing, but when it wears off, there may still be some particles left and they then start to reproduce again and the test turns positive.”
Nothing the government has told us about COVID has the hint of truth and accuracy in it.
The White House physician said that the president will continue to isolate, just like he did when he first tested positive on July 21.
