Does Joe Have COVID? Psaki Statement Causes More Chaos & Confusion
There appears to have been a COVID outbreak inside the fully vaccinated White House and many were asking if Joe has COVID.
Leaks started coming out of the White House on December 21 and it was confirmed a day later.
“Bizarrely, @PressSec Jen Psaki just described the president as “asymptomatic,” while later clarifying that he had not (yet) tested positive for coronavirus,” reported senior Breitbart editor, Joel Pollack.

Shortly after Pollack’s post, Biden addressed the nation and throughout the address was coughing.

During his address, Biden did elude that there may have been an outbreak inside the fully vaccinated outbreak (we added the bold for emphasis).
“And because Omicron spreads so easily, we’ll see some fully vaccinated people get COVID, potentially in large numbers,” Biden said. “There will be positive cases in every office, even here in the White House, among the unv- — among the vaccinated — among the vaccinated — from Omicron.”
On December 22, 2021, Associated Press reporter assigned to the White House, Darlene Superville confirmed reports that the White House claims Biden is “asymptomatic.”
.@PressSec says Biden is asymptomatic after his close contact last week with a staffer who later tested positive for COVID-19.
“He’s asymptomatic. I spent several hours with him this morning and he is feeling great,” she said.

Psaki made the statement during a White House press briefing shortly before Biden addressed the nation.
A reporter asked, “first off, how is the President feeling, given close contact? Is he symptomatic? Is he doing okay? I know he’s getting tested tomorrow, but can you give us an update?
“He’s asymptomatic. I spent several hours with him this morning, and he is feeling great. And you’ll see him at the speech shortly,” Psaki replied.
However, her statement flies in the face of what she said in a statement to NPR.
The White House said that a staff member who traveled on Air Force One on Friday tested positive for COVID on Monday – but said that President Biden has been tested twice so far since having contact with the person, and has tested negative. Biden will be tested again on Wednesday, White House press secretary Jen Psaki said in a statement.
So when did he test positive? No or maybe?
On December 22, 2021, Daily Caller White House reporter Shelby Talcott reported that Biden tested negative.
Update from the White House:
“This morning, President Biden received a PCR test and the test result was negative.” https://t.co/yt8WU4dfGJ

The report makes things even more confusing, if Biden was tested negative then why did Psaki say he was asymptomatic? Her statements would lead us to believe Biden tested positive but had no symptoms.
So what is it? Is Joe negative? Or did he test positive and is asymptomatic? The American people have a right to know but the White House is staying real quiet.
