Growing number of DC elites contract COVID from ‘super spreader’ Gridiron gala

Democrats, who incessantly brag about receiving COVID-19 vaccines and booster shots, seem to be disproportionally contracting COVID-19 regardless of their shots, at least if Washington D.C. is any measure.

According to the New York Post, just as President Joe Biden and his administration have been touting a return to normalcy from the pandemic, the annual Gridiron dinner in Washington D.C., which draws the who’s who of Capitol Hill, has turned out to be a record-setting “super spreader” event.

Reportedly, so far, a staggering 1 in 10 guests who attended the annual gala have tested positive for COVID-19, with more expected in the coming days. Some high-profile positive tests include White House press secretary Jen Psaki, and U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland, along with “dozens” of reporters in attendance.

“The almost entirely unmasked white-tie dinner required floor-length gowns and suits with coattails but no COVID-19 tests. Biden’s chief medical adviser Dr. Anthony Fauci — the public face of pandemic restrictions — and CDC Director Rochelle Walensky attended,” the Post noted in its report.

As a result of the event turning into yet another super spreader, questions are now being raised as to whether President Biden will attend the upcoming White House Correspondent’s Dinner set to take place later this month.

Psaki seemed to dance around the question of whether Biden will attend the annual dinner, which is more or less an hours-long roast of the president and other top officials.

“We haven’t announced his plans to attend or anything about his schedule,” Psaki said when asked if Biden will attend.

Many fear that with Biden’s age and possible medical problems that haven’t been made public, catching COVID-19 could be dangerous territory for the president. It wouldn’t be surprising to see the White House opt out of attending the upcoming dinner as a safety precaution.
