COVID has finally hit home for Joe Biden.
Ashley Biden, who was supposed to accompany Jill Biden on a trip to Latin America, has tested positive for COVID.
So, the First Daughter will be sidelined.
Jill Traveling Along
Jill Biden was scheduled to travel to Latin America on Wednesday.
The news broke just as Jill Biden was scheduled to depart.
COVID tests have been hitting close to him for the Bidens, but this is the first time anyone in their direct family has tested positive.
The White House stated that Ashley had not been in close contact with Joe Biden recently.
So, Jill will be flying solo on this trip, where she is scheduled to hit Costa Rica, Ecuador, and Panama.
When inquiries were made about Ashley’s vaccination status, the White House declined to answer.
It sure would be something if Biden’s own daughter was not vaccinated.
COVID has been running rampant throughout the administration, but Biden has somehow avoided getting it thus far.
The White House pretty much keeps him in a bubble save the odd outing, and everyone around him is tested on a regular basis.
