I give it two weeks before the White House recommends a return to mandates and lockdown measures as a result of Joe Biden’s exposure to COVID-19. Fauci himself has already hinted that he will begin recommending a return to mask and vaccine mandates after troubling data in Europe reveals another wave of the virus may be on the horizon.
Now that I think about it, there’s no way any Democrat would issue a return to mandates before the midterm elections, especially since they’re already in grave danger of losing their office anyway.
Irish Prime Minister Micheál Martin tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday night, just after interacting with President Joe Biden at an event.
Martin reportedly learned he tested positive for the coronavirus during the Ireland Fund’s 30th National Gala in Washington, DC. Both Joe Biden and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi attended the event where the president delivered a speech.
“I look forward to continuing our friendship and discussing our partnership tomorrow at the White House,” Biden said at the event.
I’m told that President Biden interacted with the Taoiseach (who has tested positive for COVID) just before the dinner started at the National Building Museum tonight. A White House official says he was not a close contact. That’s defined as being in vicinity for 15 minutes + https://t.co/44uszEpEYb

Although Biden interacted with Martin, he was not in “close contact” with the prime minister, according to a White House official. Close contact is when a person spends 15 minutes or more with someone who tests positive for the virus.
Martin, known as the Taoiseach of Ireland, traveled to Washington, DC, for a day of Irish celebrations to mark St. Patrick’s Day, including a visit to the White House.
The event eventually became a viral smash, with Nancy Pelosi reciting a pro-Ukraine poem written by Irish superstar Bono.
Nancy Pelosi’s office has yet to reveal if the House Speaker has tested positive. As old and decrepit as she is, Nancy is in the danger zone regarding deadly viral infections, as is Sleepy Joe.
