Former President Barack Obama left a trail of Covid-19 at Martha’s Vineyard, and Democrat Terry McAuliffe is profiting off of the endeavor.
As per the New York Times, Dukes County, Virginia, has seen an uptick in instances, with 17 new cases reported on August 19, 2021. The 15,000-person island has seen an increase in Covid-19 cases from August 8, with the 7-day average of 3 cases per day increasing to 28 new cases on August 9. Obama’s birthday was on August 4, just five days before the increase in instances began. Nancy Pelosi, who tested positive for Covid-19 on August 19, was on the island during Obama’s birthday celebration, and it’s likely she helped spread the timing of the illness and exposure to others. The other elites who attended may have contributed, although it is unknown who was Covid-19 positive before and after the event.
It goes to show how seriously Democrats take Covid-19. They’re willing to spread the virus but make everyone put on masks and quarantine. It’s despicable.
McAuliffe charged thousands of dollars to attend the dinner, and guests enjoyed the event. In 2009 McAuliffe auctioned off a date with him, according to The Virginian Pilot, so he’s not afraid of making money at the expense of others. I mean, who wants to go on a date with him?
At the fundraiser hosted at Mark Warner’s $7 million estates, Warner announced he would investigate President Joe Biden over the withdrawal from Afghanistan, so at least one good thing came from the event.
The local hospital CEO, Denise Schepici, told reporters that the hospital on the island is bursting at the seams as cases rise on the small island. Before Obama’s birthday, party cases were at a 7-day average of 0, but obviously, that soon changed. Maybe the media will ask Dr. Anthony Fauci about the uptick, and perhaps he can work his way around an answer just like his Senate hearings.
