Jabbed Jen Psaki Tests Positive For Covid-19 — AGAIN!
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki just shared that she has tested positive for the Chinese coronavirus, marking a second time she has been reported as infected with the disease. Big League Politics previously covered reports of Psaki coming down with the virus the first time back in October of 2021.
“Today, in preparation for travel to Europe, I took a PCR test this morning,” Psaki posted on Twitter. “That test came back positive, which means I will be adhering to CDC guidance and no longer be traveling on the President’s trip to Europe.”

Psaki continued the thread, adding that she had “two socially-distanced meetings” with Biden the day before, thus meaning he was not considered to be at risk. She then praised the Covid-19 jab for protecting her, despite this being the second time she has been reported to have been infected with the virus.
“Thanks to the vaccine, I have only experienced mild symptoms,” Psaki wrote. “In alignment with White House COVID-19 protocols, I will work from home and plan to return to work in person at the conclusion of a five-day isolation period and a negative test.”
Hillary Clinton also tested positive for the virus around the same time. Clinton, much like Psaki, announced the results on Twitter before declaring that the jabs had saved the day.
“I’m more grateful than ever for the protection vaccines can provide against serious illness,” Hillary Clinton posted on Twitter.
“Please get vaccinated and boosted if you haven’t already!
Psaki’s praise of the mRNA inoculation in spite of falling ill with the virus is one of many made by numerous prominent figures, including Barack Obama and the aforementioned Hillary Clinton. Some have now made fun of this trend in the form of memes, including the well-known conservative social media page “The Right To Bear Memes.” The meme in question features a group of characters referred to as “NPCs” (short for “Non-playable character”) praising their Covid-19 jabs and boosts as protective despite their inability to prevent the virus’s onset.
