Biden suggests he pressured a hospital to expedite a friend’s treatment

Well, it’s good to be the king. Or to be friends with the king.

Thursday, while Biden was giving a speech in Illinois on vaccine mandates, he said those words his staff dreads: “If I can digress for just a second.”

And then he said this:

Last night, I was on the television — on television — 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 really catch her breath. And they got her into the hospital, but 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, the receiving nurse, and asked what the situation was and has anyone even — and, by the way, I wasn’t complaining because they’re getting the living hell kicked out of them, by the way. Doctors and nurses, some of them are just — they’re running dry. I really mean it. They’re getting the living hell kicked out of them, and sometimes physically.

And to make a long story short, it took a while because all of the — not all — the vast majority of the emergency rooms and the docs were occupied taking care of COVID patients.

Imagine if Donald Trump did this. The press would be talking about how he got one of his “cronies” seen by a doctor.

  1. This is the crowning achievement of Biden’s first 8 months in office.

    And I call BS on this story. No way he picked up the television, er, telephone and called the main number of the hospital and spoke to the front desk. This man cannot even walk upright to a podium. And we are supposed to believe this tale.

    and then, imagine if he did call, the reaction of the nurse…probably thought it was a prank. I would LOVE to hear that call.

    1. And also, nice of the President to acknowledge medical professionals that work their tails off, and be emphatic about it, ON THE SAME DAY he says we should have mandates for the vax with their employers or fire them.

      ps. Northwell health suspended 1400 medical professionals this week, don’t get sick.

  2. This is typical elite stuff: Rules for thee but not for me.

    Or in this case: Care for me and mine but not for thee and thine.

    Biden then tries to cover up for it by using words to compliment the healthcare workers who are actually over worked because of Biden’s vaccine mandate which resulted in fired colleagues. Yikes. You can make this s**t up.

  3. My friends funny take:

    “Pennsylvania ER, how can I direct your call?”

    “Yes, hello dear. I’m sure your hair smells nice. This is the president of the United States. You’ve probably seen me recently on the telephone — I mean television. Yes really, they elected me. I’m Joe but my friends call me corn pop, and speaking of my friends, they’ve been waiting in your Emergency room for an intolerable number of minutes and I would like to know why you haven’t see them yet. Get do it, goddamnit!! I was part of the civil rights movement and this is racism at its worse! Get my white people seen before the rest of the poor, dirty minorities waiting to be seen! Do you hear me? Don’t make me sic my Russians on you!”

  4. I used to live in the “sanctuary city” of Chicago. Because of the amount of illegals living there the wait in an emergency room was an average of at least 6 hours, I know from plenty of experience.
