Triple-vaccinated Joe Biden suffered an ill-timed coughing fit Tuesday as he attempted to urge Americans to inject themselves with experimental Covid-19 jabs.
Addressing the nation from the State Dining Room of the White House, Biden sustained a severe cough that on multiple occasions interrupted his remarks about why vaccines work.
“If you are not fully vaccinated, you have good reason to be concerned. You’re at a high risk of getting sick,” the observably sick Biden ironically stated.
“It’s critical to mask up in public indoor places,” Biden also told the public, however before the speech he was seen walking up to the podium sans a mask.

Biden’s apparent illness comes as White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki earlier in the day claimed Biden was “asymptomatic” amid reports he came in close contact with a Covid-infected staffer aboard Air Force One last week.
“Psaki noted that the aide was fully vaccinated and boosted and had tested negative before the flight,” reported CNN Tuesday.
