Whoopi Goldberg, the co-host of “The View,” is absent from the show after contracting COVID-19 for the third time despite being triple vaccinated and boosted.
The news comes just 24 hours after First Lady Jill Biden, who is also fully vaccinated and boosted, tested positive for the virus.
“As you can see, Whoopi is not here. She has COVID. Yes, it’s back, it’s back. But she’s on the mend. She’s on the tail end and she’ll probably be back this week,” Joy Behar announced.
Goldberg had returned to the show last year wearing a shirt that said, “Over It,” and talked about her “rough” time suffering from the virus despite being “boosted within an inch of her life.”
Whoopi Goldberg said her COVID-19 illness was “rough” in contrast to those downplaying their COVID illnesses while praising vaccines and boosters.
“Thank you. Thank you. I tell you, you know, you can get boosted within an inch of your life and then the next thing you know you got COVID again! Good God! But I don’t have it now and that’s why I’m back at the table (cough),” she said at the time.
“But I will tell you, you know, we, we, we’re used to people saying, ‘well, it wasn’t that bad,’ this was a rough one. This was a rough one. (Crosstalk) Yeah, and it was, it wasn’t feeling rough, it was rough. It was rough. You know, you get up and you think I’m going to go, ‘oh no I’m not!” Goldberg said.
Goldberg’s first bout of COVID was earlier last year, which she said could have been “much worse.”
“I just feel like, you can only do what you can do and whatever your body decides it’s going to do is what you have to roll with,” Goldberg as she made a virtual appearance on The View on Jan. 5.
Goldberg continued saying:
“It could have been much, much, much, much worse, I’m sure, and it wasn’t. I’m really lucky and I’m really, really glad that everyone is now testing negative. I’m the only one left [in my family], who is still positive.”
As the Daily Fetched reported last month, the Biden Administration is reportedly preparing for more lockdowns and mask mandates.
A “high level” TSA official told Infowars that they were informed during Tuesday’s meeting of new memorandums and policies to start restricting, including mask wearing.
