Progressives FURIOUS At White House Over Their COVID Response
(ConservativeInsider.org) – For many people, including the President of the United States (POTUS), getting COVID-19 at one point or another seems almost inevitable. So, when Joe Biden’s media team announced that he tested positive for the virus recently, many Americans were not too surprised. However, some Progressives were appalled by the administration’s response to the diagnosis.
On Thursday, July 21, President Biden shared on Twitter that he tested positive for COVID-19, but was continuing to work while he felt good. Numerous unmasked White House officials appeared on TV to share about the commander-in-chief’s health in the following days, even reporting on the fact he ate his meals. This nonchalant attitude from many in the administration rubbed some Democrats who continue to push COVID restrictions the wrong way.
Julia Raifman, a Boston University public health professor, told The Washington Post that Biden’s illness “is a moment to reckon with high transmission” as she continued to push for federal mask mandates. Some epidemiologists also criticized Biden for appearing maskless in public so often and shaking hands with citizens.

Eric Topol, director of the Scripps Research Translational Institute, said he felt like Biden was “overriding CDC recommendations that are flawed” through his calm reaction to COVID. Others think the White House reaction as a whole is out of line with some Democratic states that are still issuing mask mandates. Do you think Biden and his team had the proper reaction to his positive test?
