It’s Finally Friday…

When Biden Bits was posted for Thursday, President Biden had tweeted 1 time. He added 3 tweets giving him a Thursday Tweeting Total of 4 tweets and 0 retweets.

As mentioned in Thursday’s article, the White House announced that President Biden had tested positive for the coronavirus.

President Biden issued his first what I call “proof of life” tweets at 12:18 p.m. D.C., time.

The reason I call them his “proof of life” tweets is because at noon D.C., time…

Then a minute later…

Then four minutes later…

His next tweet wasn’t sent until 2:01 p.m. D.C., time, still puts off a ‘proof of life’ vibe; this time in the form of a 21 second video clip.

President Biden: Hey folks, I guess you heard, this morning I tested positive for COVID. But I’ve been double vaccinated, double boosted. Symptoms are mild. And I really appreciate your inquiries and concerns. But I’m doing well, getting a lot of work done. Going to continue to get it done. And in the meantime, thanks for your concern. And keep the faith. It’s going to be okay.

In the daily briefing Dr. Ashish Jha said:

He was also asked where did the President catch the virus from…

Like with the Respect Marriage Act the above was passed in response to the concurring Justice Clarence Thomas opinion from the Dobbs decision.

For that reason, in future cases, we should reconsider all of this Court’s substantive due process precedents, including *Griswold, Lawrence, and Obergefell. Because any substantive due process decision is “demonstrably erroneous,” Ramos v. Louisiana, 590 U. S. , (2020) (THOMAS, J., concurring in judgment) (slip op., at 7), we have a duty to “correct the error” established in those precedents, Gamble v. United States, 587 U. S. , (2019) (THOMAS, J., concurring) (slip op., at 9). After overruling these demonstrably erroneous decisions, the question would remain whether other constitutional provisions guarantee the myriad rights that our substantive due process cases have generated.
