After President Joe Biden was diagnosed with COVID the Internet responded with speculation that the United States could be on the precipice of Vice President Kamala Harris becoming president.

“President Harris would somehow be worse than President Biden. Scary times we’re living in,” Brigitte Gabriel said.

“A 79 year old man with covid and possibly cancer is the only thing that separates us from a President Harris,” Harrison Krank said.

“Reports are that Joe Biden has COVID. Wishing him a quick recovery. The United States cannot handle one single day with President Harris in office,” Nick Adams said.

“Get ready, America,” Jack Posobiec said with a photo of Harris.


“This #COVID19 diagnosis means we will have a new #President by next week. CONGRATS to the soon to be #PresidentHarris,” another person said.

“I’m curious to see how this President Harris thing will go down,” Matthew Kolken said.

“Biden tested positive for Covid. And you think *he* was a terrible president? Better hope we don’t have President Harris in a few weeks…,” another said.

“A vaxxed, triple boosted dementia patient who still managed to get Covid and can’t remember whether or not he has cancer is the only thing separating the innocent American public from a President Harris, who may soon have her finger on the nuclear switch. God help us all,” Breck Worsham said.

“President Harris is inevitable at this point. Biden said he had cancer yesterday, today he has Covid. He fell off a bike 2 weeks ago. It feels like he’s a character in Final Destination,” Ross Patterson said.

President Joe Biden has been diagnosed with COVID and his first lady Jill Biden has given an update on his condition.

“I talked to him just a few minutes ago. He’s doing fine, he’s feeling good,” the first lady said of her husband.

The first lady has tested negative for COVID after the president tested positive, Fox News reported.

“This morning, President Biden tested positive for COVID-19,” White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said. “He is fully vaccinated and twice boosted and experiencing very mild symptoms.  He has begun taking Paxlovid. Consistent with CDC guidelines, he will isolate at the White House and will continue to carry out all of his duties fully during that time.  He has been in contact with members of the White House staff by phone this morning, and will participate in his planned meetings at the White House this morning via phone and Zoom from the residence.”


“Consistent with White House protocol for positive COVID cases, which goes above and beyond CDC guidance, he will continue to work in isolation until he tests negative,” she said. “Once he tests negative, he will return to in-person work.”

“Out of an abundance of transparency, the White House will provide a daily update on the President’s status as he continues to carry out the full duties of the office while in isolation,” she said.

Per standard protocol for any positive case at the White House, the White House Medical Unit will inform all close contacts of the president during the day Thursday, including any members of Congress and any members of the press who interacted with Biden during his travel Wednesday, the statement added.

On Wednesday the president made what sounded like another health announcement, but it was another gaffe.

The White House has issued a response after President Joe Biden went viral on Wednesday for appearing to claim he has cancer.

While speaking in Somerset, Massachusetts, Biden talked about his childhood and oil pollution growing up in Delaware, saying he wanted to create energy jobs and enact more measures to protect the climate.

“Five years ago, this towering power plant that once stood with cooling towers 500 feet high closed down,” Biden said. “The coal plant at Brayton Point was the largest of its kind in New England. 1,500 megawatts of power, enough to power one in five Massachusetts homes and businesses.”

“I just lived up the road in an apartment complex when we moved to Delaware, and just up the road a little school I went to, Holy Rosary grade school, and because it was a four-lane highway that was accessible, my mother drove us and rather than us be able to walk,” Biden said. “And guess what? The first frost, you know what was happening, you’d have to put on your windshield wipers to get literally the oil slick off the window.”

Biden said in his speech that he “has” cancer — present tense.

The White House clarified that he was referring to minor skin cancer removals before his presidency, claiming that Biden “mistakenly stated (present tense) that he has cancer.”
