Back in July of this year, President Biden reminded us that “Covid no longer controls our lives”:

Don’t get me wrong, COVID-19 is — has not been vanquished. We all know powerful variants have emerged, like the Delta variant, but the best defense against these variants is to get vaccinated. (Applause.)

My fellow Americans, it’s the most patriotic thing you can do. So, please, if you haven’t gotten vaccinated, do it — do it now for yourself, for your loved ones, for your community, and for your country.

You know, that’s how we’re going to stay ahead of these variants and protect the hard-won progress we’ve made. We never again want to be where we were a year ago today. (Applause.)

So, today, while the virus hasn’t been vanquished, we know this: It no longer controls our lives.

However, in the last week or two, Biden has demonstrated why and how the virus does still somewhat control lives — at least that of the double-vaxxed and double-boosted President of the United States:

So back into isolation Biden went.

As of today, Biden is still testing positive but the doctor’s statement contained some interesting wording:

The White House doctor is certainly going above and beyond the call of medical duty with that statement:

Also, conveniently, Biden will have to stay isolated and kept at a safe distance from any questions:

Place your bets!

It won’t be surprising if Biden ends up testing positive a third time at some point.

Covid “no longer controls our lives,” unless it does (and maybe helps give an excuse to avoid the press).
