Vice President Kamala Harris suddenly went to the doctor Sunday for a “routine” visit that had been long scheduled.
Oh, and BTW, while she was there, she got tested for Covid and was negative. She had just met with a bunch of Texas Democrats who fled the state and came down with the illness.
Nothing to see here, move along, all very routine.
According to Fox News:
Vice President Kamala Harris tested negative for COVID-19 after meeting with several Texas House Democratic lawmakers who recently contracted the virus, White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki confirmed on Monday.
“I think the vice president’s office put out that she was tested and there was no detection of COVID-19,” Psaki said. “They also put out some specific details about their proximity to the individuals who tested positive as well. We take these precautions incredibly seriously and abide by the guidance of our help and medical experts.”
Six of the Texas House Democrats who traveled to Washington D.C. have tested positive for COVID-19 in recent days. Harris met with the Texas lawmakers last Tuesday.
When asked whether the White House was disappointed that the lawmakers did not wear masks on their flight to the nation’s capital, Psaki declined to directly respond.
