How out of touch is this guy? He obviously thinks the takeaway from this anecdote is how overwhelmed hospitals are from COVID cases. The false narrative is bad enough but the real takeaway is that the President of the United States, who has shown himself to be impotent in dealing with the myriad problems facing our country, used the awesome power of his office to help a personal friend to not have to wait her turn with the rest of the peons. The hypocrisy is stunning but this is lost on President Biden. The fact that he is bragging about this blatant abuse of power is a testament to just out of touch he is.
President Joe Biden said Thursday he personally reached out to a hospital the night before to ensure the wife of his “good friend” received immediate care because the “waiting room was so crowded.” “Last night, I was on the telephone with a person at an emergency hospital ward in Pennsylvania because a good friend had called, and he had rushed his significant other to the emergency room because this woman was having trouble breathing, had a high fever, and could not catch her breath,” Biden said during a speech in Illinois promoting COVID-19 vaccine mandates for businesses. “They got her into the hospital. The waiting room was so crowded, things were so backed up they couldn’t even get her to be seen initially. So, because I knew this person, I called. I called the desk receiving nurse and asked what the situation was.”Biden indicates he pressured emergency room to fast-track a ‘good friend’ | Fox News
