The right wing launches a new sexist attack against First Lady Jill Biden

First Lady Dr. Jill Biden has tested positive for COVID-19 in a "rebound case" and is experiencing mild symptoms, her office announced Wednesday, Aug. 24. She first announced that she was COVID-19 positive last week and her office said she was being treated with Paxlovid. "After testing negative for COVID-19 on Monday during her regular testing cadence, the First Lady began to develop cold-like symptoms late in the evening," Dr. Biden's Communications Director Elizabeth Alexander said in a statement last week.

"She tested negative again on a rapid antigen test, but a PC test came back positive. The First Lady is double-vaccinated, twice boosted, and only experiencing mild symptoms. She has been prescribed a course of Paxlovid and, following CDC guidance, will isolate from others for at least five days. Close contacts of the First Lady have been notified. She is currently staying at a private residence in South Carolina and will return home after she receives two consecutive negative COVID tests."

President Joe Biden tested positive for COVID on July 21, and was also prescribed Paxlovid. He has repeatedly tested negative in recent weeks. The White House added: “The President tested negative for COVID this morning on an antigen test. Consistent with CDC guidance because he is a close contact of the First Lady, he will mask for 10 days when indoors and in close proximity to others. We will also increase the President's testing cadence and report those results.”

Jill Biden recently rebuked by Hispanics

Recently, a culturally insensitive comment by US First Lady Jill Biden which spread like wildfire across social media prompted a White House apology and outrage from a group which insisted Hispanics "are not tacos." During a speech in Texas, Biden hailed Texas' diversity as being "as distinct as the bodegas of the Bronx, as beautiful as the blossoms of Miami, and as unique as the breakfast tacos here in San Antonio." Her remark may have been aimed at celebrating a popular dish in Texas but it drew ire from the local community.

First Lady Dr. Jill Biden apologized then through the press secretary of the White House. "The First Lady apologizes that her words conveyed anything but pure admiration and love for the Latino community," Biden press secretary Michael LaRosa remarked on Twitter. The apology came after a sharp reply from the National Association of Hispanic Journalists. "We are not tacos," the disappointed National Association of Hispanic Journalists group said in their statement.

"We are not tacos," the disappointed National Association of Hispanic Journalists group said in their statement. "Using breakfast tacos to try to demonstrate the uniqueness of Latinos in San Antonio demonstrates a lack of cultural knowledge and sensitivity to the diversity of the Latinos in the region." The first lady's Texas trip backfired, since it was aimed at building support for Biden among Democratic voters.
