Former President Barack Obama announced on Twitter that he had tested positive for Covid-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms.
Obama tweeted on Sunday that “I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple days, but am feeling fine otherwise. Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative. It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.”
The former President’s positive test is the first major Covid-19 story that has come up and is a jarring reminder that just a couple of months ago, all Americans could talk about was the pandemic.
Since Obama is vaccinated, his case is known as a “breakthrough case” and once again shows that vaccination is not a silver bullet to stopping Covid-19.
Thankfully, one upside of the war in Ukraine is Democrats have seemingly forgotten Covid-19 and the pandemic entirely.
Unfortunately, that means Democrats have found a different way to manipulate the public and distract us from the real issues facing the nation. The abuses and power grabs of the pandemic cannot be forgotten, and Democrats must be held accountable for what they have done in the past two years.
