Remember when Barack Obama was going to have a huge 60th birthday party on Martha’s Vineyard, but then said he was going to scale it back because of COVID-19 … and then had the full bash anyway without masks? The New York Times Annie Karni told CNN’s Jim Acosta that this was a “sophisticated, vaccinated crowd.” Apparently the sophisticated are immune.
But now with the Omicron variant spreading like wildfire, even the sophisticated, vaccinated crowd is testing positive for COVID, despite the vaccination and the booster. It was just a few days ago that Paul Waldman wrote for the Washington Post that liberals shouldn’t “give in to the temptation of schadenfreude when omicron sweeps through Red America”:

But liberals like Elizabeth Warren and Cory Booker did everything right and still tested positive for the coronavirus. So now the Post is telling people in advance not to feel ashamed if they followed the rules and contract COVID anyway.

Well yeah now that everyone at CNN and the White House are getting it.
Gotta explain to the norms that anyone can catch COVID, even the specials.

I was told it was a result of moral failing, though!

no, let them be ashamed, why not?

They should, however, be mercilessly taunted and gloated at.

They were just telling liberals not to gloat when people in red states caught COVID because of the Omicron variant.
The dots are practically touching and they still can't connect them

The realization that “the rules” didn’t really help is sinking in.

Surprised they didn’t find a way to blame Ron DeSantis.

The fact that "I would be ashamed if I got COVID" is apparently something they think just shows how truly deranged these elitist pricks are.

You missed the most hilarious part… “Aline, who requested to be identified by her first name only for privacy reasons, is still puzzling over how she got the virus — was it because she wore a cloth mask rather than a medical-grade one?”

It’s nice that the Washington Post is so concerned about everyone’s feelings all of a sudden.
