Former President Barack Obama revealed he tested positive for breakthrough Covid-19 and his only symptom is a “scratchy throat.”
“I just tested positive for COVID. I’ve had a scratchy throat for a couple of days, but I’m feeling fine otherwise,” he tweeted on Sunday. The 60-year-old Democrat seemed to confirm rumors that he and his wife Michelle Obama are living separately.
“Michelle and I are grateful to be vaccinated and boosted, and she has tested negative,” he wrote. “It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.”

It’s a reminder to get vaccinated if you haven’t already, even as cases go down.

Despite being triple vaccinatedObama said he believes he caught COVID in Washington, DC after traveling there from his native Hawaii.
Former President Obama, George Bush and Bill Clinton volunteered to take the experimental mRNA vaccines publicly to calm jittery Democrats in December 2020.
The news of Obama’s breakthrough COVID case spread rapidly on social media, and his post was retweeted over 33,000 times with 27,000 comments.
Some of his followers prayed for his speedy recovery. While others wondered why he announced he has a cold.
Praying for your speedy recovery.

Yeah … it’s so dangerous that all of the sudden every liberal city said eff it, it’s all good. Hell, congress even relaxed mask mandates just in time for Biden to give his STate of the Union in front of a live audience. We’ve all been played.

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) eased its mask guidance for cities with low rates of COVID cases.
98% of Americans in 94% of counties do not need to wear face masks. Many red states, including Florida and Georgia, dropped their indoor mask mandates last year.
