Despite getting her fourth dose of the vaccine on April 1, Cacklin’ Kamala still got COVID.

But it’s the way that it was announced that is raising some eyebrows — the press release noted that 79-year-old President Biden isn’t considered a “close contact.”

CNN White House Correspondent M.J. Lee tweeted out the news shortly after noon on Tuesday.

The White House is using the excuse that Biden and Harris haven’t been around each other lately because of their travel schedules, but we all know it’s because there’s an ongoing shade war between the President and Vice President.

Despite the VP having no symptoms, the Associated Press report had to spin the news to how dangerous the pandemic continues to be. Of course they did.

Vice President Kamala Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on Tuesday, the White House announced, underscoring the persistence of the highly contagious virus even as the U.S. eases restrictions in a bid to return to pre-pandemic normalcy.

Neither President Joe Biden nor first lady Jill Biden was considered a “close contact” of Harris in recent days, said the vice president’s press secretary, Kirsten Allen. Harris had been scheduled to attend Biden’s Tuesday morning Presidential Daily Brief but was not present, the White House said.

She had returned Monday from a weeklong trip to the West Coast. The last time she saw Biden was the previous Monday, April 18.

Harris issued the usual statement from vaccinated leftists on Twitter that goes something like, “I tested positive for COVID. I have no/few symptoms and am feeling fine. I will follow the CDC guidelines for isolation. I’m so grateful that I’m vaccinated and boosted.”

Does the CDC issue a template for these or what?

AP reports that Harris is taking the new COVID pill, Paxlovid. That’s the antiviral medication that the Biden-Harris administration paid Pfizer billions for 10 million doses and works as a protease inhibitor — just like that drug that was smeared as a “horse dewormer” on CNN.

It’s a bit weird that Harris got sick now — last month, her husband Doug Emhoff and she had managed to dodge getting sick back then.

Harris, 57, received her first dose of the Moderna COVID-19 vaccine weeks before taking office and a second dose just days after Inauguration Day in 2021. She received a booster shot in late October and an additional booster on April 1. Fully vaccinated and boosted people have a high degree of protection against serious illness and death from COVID-19, particularly from the most common and highly transmissible omicron variant.

Harris’ diagnosis comes a month after her husband, Doug Emhoff, recovered from the virus, as a wave of cases of the highly transmissible omicron subvariant has spread through Washington’s political class, infecting Cabinet members, White House staffers and lawmakers including House Speaker Nancy Pelosi. Sens. Ron Wyden, D-Ore., and Chris Murphy, D-Conn., tested positive on Tuesday.

Now that Democrats are getting sick with COVID despite their multiple jabs and weird insistence on masks, it’s suddenly not a moral failing to get the airborne respiratory virus.

But some are relishing that Kamala Harris who had said that she wouldn’t take the “Trump vaccine” before the 2020 election is now “grateful” for that very same vaccine that didn’t actually prevent her from contracting the virus.

The best take was Jimmy Failla whose brutal tweet was just hilarious.

It’s no secret that people are cowering with fear these days. But those of us with faith know that living your life in fear is crap. Let’s get that message out there.

We’re living in a time where fear is running rampant and unchecked.

It seems like most public policy is based on fear these days, especially when it comes to the Wuhan Virus.

2 Timothy 1:7 says, “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.”

It seems that a LOT of people have completely forgotten that message.

Let’s give them a reminder…
