Can you imagine the reaction from liberal media outlets if President Trump’s Secretary of State contracted China Virus at a ritzy D.C. dinner event where the entire purpose was to bash political opponents?
They would go absolutely wild. Donald Trump would be called a murderer, Republicans would be immediately labeled as white supremacists, and liberal women would be shrieking on social media.
However, since Antony Blinken works for Joe Biden, and they’re both globalist liberals, and he contracted the virus at a liberal function, Fake News outlets have given him a total pass.
Secretary of State Antony Blinken has contracted COVID-19 but “is experiencing only mild symptoms,” his team announced following the results of a test Wednesday afternoon.
“He tested negative on Tuesday and again as recently as this morning,” State Department spokesman Ned Price said Wednesday afternoon. “The secretary has not seen President Biden in person for several days, and the president is not considered a close contact according to guidelines by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.”
Blinken, who has been vaccinated and received a booster shot, “will isolate at home and maintain a virtual work schedule.”.
His diagnosis comes in the wake of the White House Correspondents’ Association dinner Saturday, which he attended with his wife, White House Cabinet secretary Evan Ryan, but the statement did not indicate when he was exposed to the virus.
“Secretary Blinken is grateful to the doctors, nurses, and medical staff who provide the State Department workforce with exemplary health services around the world and encourages all Americans who are eligible to get fully vaccinated and boosted in order to protect themselves and their loved ones from developing severe COVID-19 disease,” Price said.

The White House seconded Price’s assertion that Blinken did not interact with Joe Biden during the Correspondents’ Dinner.

It’s not the first time that a coronavirus infection has disrupted Blinken’s schedule. He cut short a diplomatic tour across Southeast Asia in December after a reporter in his delegation tested positive for COVID-19.
The level of hypocrisy is truly out of this world.
Speedy recovery for the man responsible for the war in Eastern Europe!
