President Biden tested positive for Covid this week and is isolated in the White House, but he continues to get some work done according to WH social media accounts:

Blue check Twitter often never fails to deliver, and in this case an MD/PhD shared the hottest of takes about Biden saying he’s still working while recovering from Covid:
POTUS working while having COVID infection epitomizes white supremacy urgency in the workplace. Sets a bad example for everyone that he cannot rest. COVID infection is serious, symptoms debilitating for many, and ppl should take time off without working through it.

Well, that’s certainly one way to look at it.
I don't know whether to report this for medical misinformation or racism.

Yeah, there’s a lot there to unpack.
I refuse to believe working hard is a white thing. https://t.co/bzA7AqoNHG

One could look at it the other way around, however:
It’s so easy to see how this would be played the other way: “By resting while he’s sick—something many Americans cannot afford to do—the President epitomizes white privilege.” https://t.co/65u0RKOFWl

if he took time off you would say that's privilege lol https://t.co/C0g9ggKTY0

“White supremacy urgency in the workplace” is just racist code for “I don’t want to do my job in a timely manner.” https://t.co/WqyDHIe1qy

This is never a bad prescription:
You should take time off from twitter

Take two “log off the Twitters” and call us in the morning.
Everyone should be forced to take a month off from Twitter each year. You get takes like this when people don’t touch grass regularly. https://t.co/Hug5d6Xsl6

For your own sanity and that of others it’s not a bad idea!
