Twitter users expressed discomfort over viral clips of President Joe Biden coughing repeatedly throughout a Tuesday White House address on the passage of the CHIPS bill and then shaking hands with several lawmakers afterwards. Biden also looked dead in the water while expecting a handshake from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., even though the two had shaken hands only seconds prior.
Biden’s critics on Twitter emphasized their horror by reminding users that Biden had just finished with his COVID-19 isolation and was unmasked and shaking hands after coughing into them.
The Washington Free Beacon Twitter account shared a video clip of President Joe Biden coughing his way through his speech on the signing of the CHIPS bill on Tuesday. The outlet captioned the video, stating, “Biden is coughing so much during his speech that he can barely talk.”
The Free Beacon also shared a clip of Biden shaking hands with Democratic lawmakers after the cough-filled speech and captioned it, tweeting, “After coughing into his hand during his entire speech, Biden proceeds to shake hands with everyone in the crowd.” more here
