Joe Biden’s European trip was a disaster.
And it got worse after this loss when he could least afford it.
Because a top-aide just abandoned their post in the Biden White House over something unthinkable.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki is the public face of the Biden Administration.
But Psaki just made a shocking announcement.
For the past few months, Jen Psaki mocked unvaccinated Americans during White House press briefings, even declaring this a “pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
But the irony is that Jen Psaki just revealed that the reason she did not travel to Scotland with Joe Biden was because she tested positive for coronavirus.
“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,” Psaki’s statement read.
According to Psaki, she repeatedly tested negative all week long, but her test on Sunday came back positive.
“Since then, I have quarantined and tested negatively (via PCR) for COVID on Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Saturday,” Psaki continued. “However, today, I tested positive for COVID.”
Psaki said that the last time she was in contact with Joe Biden was five days before she tested positive, and that both her and Biden were wearing a mask and practicing social distancing guidelines.
“I last saw the president on Tuesday, and we sat outside more than 6 feet apart, and wore masks,” Psaki concluded.
Of course, not only is Psaki fully vaccinated, but the White House imposed some of the strictest COVID protocols in the world, including an indoor mask mandate.
Psaki’s even been photographed double masking.
Despite all that, Psaki still tested positive for COVID.
Mandatory vaccinations and masks are the centerpiece of the Democrats’ COVID response.
But apparently these strict measures still couldn’t keep the coronavirus out of the White House.
And with Biden stumbling through another foreign relations disaster with his trip to Europe, Psaki’s positive test couldn’t have come at a worse time.
