Joe Biden says Trump testing positive shows why COVID-19 must be taken seriously

Former vice-president and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said on Friday he and wife Jill Biden were sending their wishes for a quick and full recovery to President Donald Trump and first lady Melania after both tested positive for COVID-19.

Biden went on to say that Trump’s positive diagnosis was “not a matter of politics,” but a “bracing reminder” the virus needs to be taken seriously.

He added that people should be “patriotic,” and to wear a mask in public as it protects yourself and others during nationwide mandates.

    A leftist who's salvation comes from group does not care about the orangeman nor his wife, the leftist is only pandering for votes. A black republican is a black life that doesn't matter, because a black republican is not black in a leftist mind, especially Biden; tribalism at it's worst.

    What a complete waste of time!
    Wearing a mask isn't going to do anything but ensure your lungs aren't getting enough oxygen. WAKE UP PEOPLE!

    I think some one put something some where for the president to get Covid19!

    Trump getting the coof doesn't show how serious it is. Here are the recovery rates from the CDC:
    0-19 = 99.997%
    20-49 = 99.98%
    50-69 = 99.5%
    70+ = 94.6%
    You know what is serious, though? Whatever the hell Joe Biden has.

    Cases mean nothing. Hospitalizations and deaths are all that matter, and those numbers are incredibly low.

    Yea right nah all of this is planned joe biden is trying to take trump place and trying to look like the good guy what a coincidence that trump has "covid" and joe biden doesn't joe biden wants to defeat or kill President trump in ways because if biden wins he will shut down the economy and he will surrender all of us to china he will be like a dictator like hitler and the doctors who told trump he has "covid" they are liars and were bought by joe biden to land trump in the hospital and kill him and so biden can conquer and take over thats how corrupted he is now the first lady and trump said they were told tested positive but showed no symptoms and that they felt good now that's evidence that there isnt a virus people are mistaken from a regular flue or fever for a non existent and non deadly virus all of this is lies the government bill gates the world health organization and for sure joe biden etc planned it the news and the media are also getting paid to tell lies that's how corrupted this world is they are taking our freedom away but there is no deadly virus is more of a plandemic lets start the revolutionary war

    Biden is so stable and he has not attacked or laugh at Trump. What a respectable man he is! I mean if it were Biden who caught the virus, Trump would laugh at Biden in his campaign gathering.

    Good luck America. Say good bye to your precious constitution if these clowns become leaders! I love that Biden talks like if he was president there would be 0 cases in America. Your not voting for Biden. Your voting for Harris. This fool won’t make half his term bet.
