Vice President Kamala Harris‘ husband, Doug Emhoff, has contracted COVID-19 — and even though the Veep is still negative … there’s concern the White House could be at risk.
The Second Gentleman tested positive for coronavirus Tuesday, but word is … he’s feeling okay. Harris, for her part, has tested negative thus far — and will continue to test regularly … according to her office.
Both Harris and Emhoff were scheduled to attend a White House event later today that was going to be celebrating Equal Pay Day in honor of Women’s History Month … but both husband and wife skipped it — DE for being sick obviously, and out of caution for Harris.
There’s no indication that President Biden has caught the virus — he last tasted Sunday, but the fact he spoke at the equal pay shindig indicates he’s doing just fine.
Still … the fact Emhoff is positive seems to imply that COVID has entered the White House, and that it could possibly reach the Prez and VP — which would be bad, especially considering Joe is scheduled to take a trip to Europe next week to deal with Ukraine.
Of course, everyone is vaccinated and boosted — so hopefully everyone is OK.
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.
