Psaki Claims Pelosi Kissing Biden On The Cheek Was Not ‘Close Contact’

Published

on

During Thursday’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki claimed that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has tested positive for COVID-19, kissing President Biden on the cheek and holding his hand did not meet the White House’s standard of “close contact.”

“How can you guys say that President Biden was not a close contact with Speaker Pelosi when there is video of the Speaker kissing him?” Fox News reporter Peter Doocy asked.

“Well, Peter, the way that it is defined is by the Center for Disease Control — the CDC,” Psaki responded. “And their definition of it is 15 minutes of contact within a set period of time within six feet.  It did not meet that bar.”

“It does not mean that no one will get COVID around the world who does not have a close contact,” she continued. “It just means we are defining, for all of you, whether the President and their interaction met the definition of the CDC of a close contact.”

On Thursday, Pelosi’s office announced that she had tested positive for COVID-19 the day after attending an event with Biden and other top Democrats.

“After testing negative this week, Speaker Pelosi received a positive test result for COVID-19 and is currently asymptomatic,” Drew Hammill, Pelosi’s deputy chief of staff, tweeted. “The Speaker is fully vaccinated and boosted, and is thankful for the robust protection the vaccine has provided.”

Multiple other Democrats who attended the event have now tested positive for COVID-19, as noted by Axios.

“Attorney General Merrick Garland and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday, days after they attended the Gridiron Club dinner, a high-profile D.C. media event,” Axios reported. “Reps. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.) and Joaquín Castro (D-Texas) also tested positive after attending the dinner on Saturday.”

    They had us masked, six feet apart, and locked down because they were freaked out, and this isn’t considered close contact? What a bunch of evil hypocritical morons.

    So ready for her exit from public office. She alone is a good enough reason we need term limits. Her negligence thru ignorance a reason to fire her well overstayed welcome in office. Why must we suffer thru this type of dangerous partisanship. President Biden reading off of pre-planned notes, with no cognitive test isn’t perfect it’s dangerous at it’s best. She completley shut our Country down allowing we the people to suffer & worry when President Trump stood our ground. Now attempts to tell us water isn’t wet & us to believe it? Why even waste our time in doing so? Love & respect of Country keeps us hopeful. Know & trust the failed approach to leadership & politics occurring during your tenure, leaves only the legacy why we need to completley rebuild our system. With all do Respect save your time attempting to salvage your role in this disastrous plan!

Kamala Harris

On Tuesday, the White House announced that Vice President Kamala Harris has tested positive for COVID-19 and is not currently showing symptoms.

“Today, Vice President Harris tested positive for COVID-19 on rapid and PCR tests,” said Kirsten Allen, press secretary to the vice president. “She has exhibited no symptoms, will isolate and continue to work from the Vice President’s residence. She has not been a close contact to the President or First Lady due to their respective recent travel schedules. She will follow CDC guidelines and the advice of her physicians. The Vice President will return to the White House when she tests negative.”

Harris wrote on Twitter that she was going to continue to isolate and is showing no symptoms.

“Today I tested positive for COVID-19. I have no symptoms, and I will continue to isolate and follow CDC guidelines. I’m grateful to be both vaccinated and boosted,” Harris tweeted.

Harris last reportedly saw President Biden at the Easter Egg Roll on April 18 before leaving for California, which she returned from on April 25.

The vice president has been vaccinated against COVID-19 and has received two booster shots, receiving the second booster on April 1.

“Yesterday I received my second COVID-19 booster shot,” Harris tweeted on April 2. “We know that getting vaccinated is the best form of protection from this virus and boosters are critical in providing an additional level of protection. If you haven’t received your first booster—do it today.”

At Least 3 US Airlines Will Restore Flight Privileges To Some Mask Violators

Published

on

At least three major U.S. airlines – Delta Air Lines, United Airlines and American Airlines – have now said they will allow some passengers who were banned from their planes over mask violations to have their flight privileges restored – determined on a case-by-case basis.

On Wednesday, Delta released a statement saying, “At Delta, nothing is more important than the safety and security of our customers and our people. With masks now optional, Delta will restore flight privileges for customers on the mask non-compliance no-fly list only after each case is reviewed and each customer demonstrates an understanding of their expected behavior when flying with us.”

“Any further disregard for the policies that keep us all safe will result in placement on Delta’s permanent no-fly list. Customers who demonstrated egregious behavior and are already on the permanent no-fly list remain barred from flying with Delta,” the statement added.

United Airlines similarly announced it will allow passengers it banned for not following mask rules to be allowed to fly again.

“On a case-by-case basis, we will allow some customers who were previously banned for failing to comply with mask-related rules to fly United again — after ensuring their commitment to follow all crewmember instructions on board,” United Airlines said in a statement.

American Airlines will also allow passengers banned for violating mask rules “to resume travel at some point in time,” according to the company’s chief government affairs officer, Nate Gatten.

“In cases where an incident may have started with face mask noncompliance and escalated into anything involving something more serious, or certainly an assault on one of our key members or customers, those passengers are going to remain on our permanent internal refuse list and will never be allowed to travel with us again,” Gatten said.
