This is insane.
In a strange turn of events, ABC News’ Jonathan Karl has tested positive for COVID-19 just two days after meeting with President Biden at the White House Correspondents’ Dinner where the two men shook hands.
According to Fox News, Karl who is fully vaccinated and boosted was seen at the dinner mingling very closely with President Biden just before he accepted the award given to him for his coverage of the Jan. 6 Capitol riots.
Karl tested positive on Monday morning after having very close contact with several people in Biden’s administration.
So far multiple people in President Biden’s administration have tested positive including Vice President Kamala Harris and White House communications director Kate Bedingfield.
It was ironic during the dinner when comedian Trevor Noah stated that it was a “great honor to be speaking tonight at the nation’s most distinguished super-spreader event.”
Noah added, “What are you doing here? You guys spent the last two years telling everyone the importance of wearing masks and avoiding large, indoor gatherings. Then the second someone offers you a free dinner, you all turn into Joe Rogan.”
