Vice-president Kamala harris just went to the hospital for what the White House calls a standard visit – but some fear it could be COVID-related, depending on who she’s been around with in recent days.
News broke on Sunday that the Veep made what appeared to be an unexpected trip to Walter Reed in DC – something a WH official confirmed, but downplayed as nothing more than a “routine date at home. doctor”. Apparently, it was already planned.
You might find it odd that a checkup takes place on a Sunday … but for the leaders of our nation, we assume they can get appointments when they want (or need). Even recent history has shown it … it is not uncommon for a Prez see a doc on weekends.
As we said, the WH says it has nothing to do with “rona or Harris” meeting with Texas lawmakers last week … a few of whom have tested positive for the virus since then. Still, the timing has raised eyebrows – but for now the message is… it’s a lot of ado about nothing.
Of course, it’s understandable that people connect these dots. As we said, the Vice President had some time on Tuesday with over 60 TX Dems who fled their state to avoid having to vote, to no avail, on new election laws that had to be passed regardless.
Kamala gave them props during the meeting, saying they were doing the right thing … even if they put their necks in danger. Govt. Greg Abbott vowed that politicians who gave up their duty would be arrested and charged as soon as they returned to town.
BTW, here’s another reason why Kamala’s Walter Reed Visitor Center is raising suspicion – her rep said she would not be tested despite being in the same room as 3 of the Texans who were positive… apparently, because they were. t near her for the meeting, and because she is fully vaccinated. The rep says that due to the sequence of events it was determined that she was not at risk of exposure… so testing / quarantine was not necessary.
The three Texas state officials who tested positive would also have been completely vaxxed, and yet… they still caught the ‘rona. Only Rep. Celia Israel came out to reveal that she was one of 3 … the other two have remained anonymous until now.
