(PresidentialWire.com)- Last Thursday, Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi became one of the 72 people who attended the annual DC Gridiron Dinner to test positive for COVID-19.
The popular annual event, which had been canceled for the last two years due to the COVID pandemic, made its grand return on April 2 only to become a COVID Super-Spreader Event.
Will ironies never cease?
By last Wednesday, several officials, including Congressmen Adam Schiff and Joaquin Castro, Attorney General Merrick Garland, and Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo had tested positive for COVID after attending the Gridiron dinner.
Other prominent attendees who later tested positive include Republican Senator Susan Collins, President Biden’s sister Valerie, Vice President Harris’ communications director Jamal Simmons, First Lady Jill Biden’s press secretary Michael LaRosa, and New York City Mayor Eric Adams.
Two days before Speaker Pelosi tested positive, she was at the White House during Barack Obama’s visit where she proceeded to share a kiss with President Biden and cozy up to former President Obama.

Then, the day before Speaker Pelosi joined the Gridiron Positive, she was back at the White House again for a bill-signing ceremony. Nancy stood with the rest of the Democrat Congressional leadership as they clustered tightly around the little table where President Biden signed the sweeping Postal Service reform bill into law.
Once the bill was signed, COVID-positive Pelosi once again hugged and kissed the near-octogenarian president.
If you wanted to take every high-ranking Democrat leader out of commission, sending a COVID-positive Pelosi to White House events is certainly one way to do it.
In fact, in a rather entertaining piece of satire at the Washington Free Beacon last Friday, writer Andrew Stiles had a little fun with that very idea, hilariously warning that “Nancy Pelosi’s High-Risk Infection Could Wreak Havoc on Democrat Leadership.”
