President Biden coughed into his hand following a Monday speech in New Jersey and proceeded to use it to shake hands with members of the public, all while not wearing a mask.

The incident comes less than a week after Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas tested positive for COVID-19 just days following an event with the president.

Last Tuesday, a fully vaccinated Mayorkas tested positive for COVID-19 as part of routine pre-travel protocols.

Three days earlier, Mayorkas and Biden had attended the 40th Annual National Peace Officers' Memorial Service at the U.S. Capitol alongside Biden, where they were photographed just feet apart without masks.

BIDENS CAUGHT VIOLATING DC MASK MANDATE AT POSH GEORGETOWN RESTAURANT

"Secretary Mayorkas is experiencing only mild congestion; he is fully vaccinated and will isolate and work at home per CDC protocols and medical advice," DHS spokesperson Marsha Espinosa said at the time.

Earlier this month, the president and first lady stoked controversy when they were caught walking without a mask through a ritzy Italian seafood restaurant in Washington, D.C., where all individuals over age 2 are required to wear a mask indoors, regardless of vaccination status

While flanked by masked Secret Service agents, the maskless Bidens walked through Fiola Mare in Georgetown.

White House press secretary Jen Psaki brushed off a question about the incident, saying people should pay attention to the president's policies and "not overly focus on moments in time."

The White House did not respond to Fox News' request for comment in time for publication.

Colin Powell died from complications of multiple myeloma and Parkinsons meds which lowered his immune responses

to all diseases.

Hours later, it emerged that Powell, who was 84 years old, had multiple myeloma, a rare blood cancer that weakens the immune system, increases the risk of severe COVID-19 and reduces vaccine effectiveness. 

He also  had prostate cancer  in 2003 and was  being treated  for early-stage Parkinson’s disease, according to his longtime assistant Peggy Cifrino.

This particular vaccine is ineffective against cancer.

Due to complications of cancer of the blood and Parkinson's medications, then Covid.

Publish all of the UK trash links you like, doesn't change the facts.

He was a dead man walking, most likely exposed to Agent Orange as well,

multiple myeloma is incurable, particularly at his age.

Total lie.

I was the executor for two people who died of COVID at home in 2020.

One in NC and the other in AZ.

Both coroners insisted testing kits were too rare to waste on the deceased.

In spite of one having been in a Covid ward the month before, he was listed as natural causes

with pneumonia.

The other was listed as natural causes, probable heart attack, nothing about the COVID he had for 2 weeks

I personally believe that the numbers are vastly unreported because of this.

To support your statement

The answer can get complicated.

Early in the pandemic, some of the answers provided by public officials — who were scrambling to track the disease as it overwhelmed health systems — fed skepticism. Last April, Deborah Birx, MD, coordinator of the White House Coronavirus Task Force, said this when asked about people who have COVID-19 but die from preexisting conditions: “If someone dies with COVID-19, we are counting that as a COVID-19 death.

...

“Whether COVID-19 shortened a life by 15 years or 15 minutes; whether COVID-19 is an underlying or contributing condition, the virus was in circulation, infected an Alaskan, and hastened their death.” 

... That statement, combined with some state health officials saying they follow the same policy , sparked charges that the COVID-19 totals were inflated by deaths from other diseases and even auto accidents if the victims happened to have COVID-19. Federal and state governments gradually altered such policies over the spring and summer to say that in order for a death to be counted as a COVID-19 death, the disease had to have played a role.

...

and to support what I know from first hand experience.

Others, however, have no COVID-19 symptoms or previous diagnosis. For those who die — from a heart attack, for instance — the role of COVID-19 might never be determined unless there’s a reason to run a post-mortem test for the disease, Raja explains. As for those killed by traumas such as accidents and assaults, a test wouldn’t matter.

“Whether or not you have COVID isn’t going to change your cause of death when you get hit by a car,” he says.

For medical examiners and coroners, COVID-19’s role in death can also be unclear before an autopsy or investigation. Many people who die at home do not get diagnosed with — or get medical care for — what ultimately kills them, Aiken notes. That’s particularly true of COVID-19.

“If you follow people with COVID, they can have a course that seems mild and rapidly declines. I’ve seen that in some of my cases,” she says.

These are among the reasons that current COVID-19 death totals are inherently incomplete estimates.

Joe Biden is a momentary mistake.

A majority of more than, or close to 8 million more people felt that Mr. Trump

was a big enough mistake that a box of spaghetti was preferable.

No mistake. A Dem Administration will try to clean up after an R again,

but it's no where near as bad as what Bush left Obama, that's for sure.

Will any thing ever be acomplished with the filibuster and a 50/50 split,

probably not, but that is preferable as to where we ended up after 4 years of 45.

Let them try to impeach anyone, they have already made the process a sham.

They have already threatened or officially asked to impeach Biden and Fauci multiple times.

Further cheapening the process.

Good luck with that

I think Joe Biden made a momentary mistake

Which one?  The going maskless on more than one occasion where that was the policy, or the standing right next to a maskless Mayorkas just days before Mayorkas tested positive for Covid, or the coughing into his hand maskless and then shaking the hands of others?

What was Pelosi's excuse for violating a policy she supported?  What was Newsom's excuse for violating the very policies he forced others to follow?  What was Cuomo's excuse for being caught violating his own policies several times?  Feinstein, Bowser, Lightfoot all hardliners on forced mask policies, distancing, closing indoor venues, shutting down select restaurants and businesses, and staying away from friends and anyone not immediate family, all caught violating those policies.  What was the excuse for allowing, even encouraging, huge rallys and riots both indoors and outdoors during the peak of Covid and then turning around and excoriating others for doing the same thing but without the violence, and screaming and expelling of vapors on others through or without masks?  Momentary mistakes all?

Here's the thing, at least those like Trump who truly believed that masks were ineffective and that the vaccination and/or anti-bodies would protect them and those around them with some effort at distancing (or outdoors) were simply misled and/or misunderstood the science as it developed.  Ignorance was truly their excuse, but at least they did not preach or force one thing on others and then do the opposite.

These Democrats were either as ignorant as Trump about the science, or they knew the science but felt that the policies they claim to have based on it didn't apply to them, only to the rest of the riff raff who's lives and livelihoods they most impacted.  That sort of hypocrisy is worse than ignorance, sets a terrible example for both their admirers and detractors, and results in the same sort of exposure to others to this disease.   I see such hypocrisy in many of the policies and positions of democratic politicians (especially in the financial realm), and it makes it difficult for me to take them seriously.  Not that republicans are much better, but at least it isn't as glaring, IMHO.

Biden is a typical Democrat, make a whole bunch of restrictive rules; but then don't follow any of them.

Governor Whitless of Michigan is another prime example of "Do as I say; not as I do".

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer apologized Sunday after a photo circulated of her at a Lansing bar violating Michigan health department orders by closely gathering unmasked with a dozen other people.

No more than six people can gather together at indoor restaurants, and groups of customers must be six feet apart, according to the latest Michigan Department of Health and Human Services pandemic order . The photo of Whitmer and the 12 other patrons was first reported on Sunday by the right-wing publication Breitbart .

Whitmer has also faced criticism for taking a private flight to Florida in March to visit her ailing father Richard. House Oversight Chair Rep. Steven Johnson, R-Wayland, has ordered Whitmer and her administration to answer questions about how a nonprofit organization paid for the trip, and is threatening a subpoena if those questions are unanswered.

There are countless Democrats that can't seem to follow their own Covid 19 edicts. The media generally just gives them a free pass; or allows them to make a lame apology.

Democrats are simply bad for America.
