“The waiting room was so crowded, things were so backed up they couldn’t even get her to be seen initially. So, because I knew this person, I called. I called the desk receiving nurse and asked what the situation was.”
Holy. Moly. WHAT.
Biden bragged that he helped a friend move to the front of the line at the ER:
“Last night, I was on the telephone with a person at an emergency hospital ward in Pennsylvania because a good friend had called, and he had rushed his significant other to the emergency room because this woman was having trouble breathing, had a high fever, and could not catch her breath,” Biden said during a speech in Illinois promoting COVID-19 vaccine mandates for businesses. “They got her into the hospital. The waiting room was so crowded, things were so backed up they couldn’t even get her to be seen initially. So, because I knew this person, I called. I called the desk receiving nurse and asked what the situation was.”
“To make long story short, it took a while because all of the – not all – the vast majority of the emergency rooms and docs were occupied taking care of COVID patients,” Biden added. “I bet every one of you can name somebody who got sent to the hospital with something other than COVID and couldn’t get it taken care of.”
Biden said that he “wasn’t complaining” when he made the phone call because doctors and nurses working in overcrowded hospitals are “getting the living hell kicked out of them, sometimes physically.”
Did the President of the Unites States just admit to personally pressuring a hospital to let a friend's significant other skip ahead in the line at the ER? pic.twitter.com/CVUCq3oity
