After an audible reaction from the audience, Behar added, “Yes, it’s back!” as if she were talking about some slasher movie villain. Just to get this out of the way: I genuinely hope that both Goldberg and Mrs. Biden fully recover from this mild cold — I mean, uh, COVID — and suffer no lingering effects from it. But with that said, boy, isn’t this some convenient timing? Goldberg’s diagnosis was revealed shortly before conservative pundit Clay Travis pointed out that a school in Maryland is bringing back mask mandates for its students:

It’s easy to be cynical when this sort of fear-mongering from the left goes virtually unchecked. But on Wednesday’s episode of “The View,” the cynics were all but proved right. “So Whoopi is still under the thing — the COVID weather,” Behar said before hilariously pointing out that this is Goldberg’s third bout with COVID-19. Behar, perhaps realizing what she was spewing, quickly went into damage control mode: “But, you know, people write, ‘Well, if she got the vaccination, how come she still gets it?’ Because she’s not dead, she’s just a little bit under the weather. “If you don’t get [the vaccine] and you get the disease, you might die.” And there it is. Look, this writer is totally unqualified to comment on the efficacy of the COVID-19 vaccine and is not going to tell you what you should and shouldn’t do with your own body. But it is undeniable that the definition of vaccination has slowly been changed to seemingly retrofit this idea that vaccines aren’t meant to prevent, but to mitigate — no matter how much outlets like The Associated Press try to contextualize it. So, again, here’s to the total and complete recovery of Goldberg and Biden. But don’t spit on Americans’ intelligence and try to tell them it’s raining. This article appeared originally on The Western Journal.
A DC area elementary school — Montgomery County, Maryland — is reinstating a mask mandate — N95’s — for third graders over a few kids testing positive for covid. Here’s the letter. They’re coming with masks for your kids again. Get ready. Read this insanity. pic.twitter.com/LZs4N19XLL— Clay Travis (@ClayTravis) September 5, 2023
