After Admitting He Hasn’t Been Tested, Biden Coughs Loudly, Then Gets Corrected by CNN Host
That was proven again, as if it needed to be, when former Vice President Joe Biden appeared on CNN and spoke to “The Lead” host Jake Tapper.
Biden told Tapper that his doctors said he had “no underlying condition” that would complicate his condition if he contracted the virus and admitted he has not been tested.
“I have not been tested for the coronavirus. I’ve had, thank God, no symptoms that I’m aware of. Doesn’t mean that that can’t happen, but I have not been tested,” he said.

“I also took the test last night,” the president said at a news conference on March 14. “I decided I should based on the press conference yesterday. People were asking ‘did I take the test,’” he said.

The president’s physician, Dr. Sean Conley, then said in a memo that he had “received confirmation that the test is negative.”
But Biden coughed in his hand again when he was talking to Tapper about how he would be selecting a vice presidential candidate.
“You know, you’re supposed to cough into your elbow,” the host said. “I learned that, actually, covering your White House.”
“Actually, that’s true,” Biden responded. “But fortunately, I’m alone in my home, but that’s OK. I agree: You’re right.”
“It’s kinda old-school to do it with your hand,” the host said as he showed him the proper way. “Do it into your elbow. You’re supposed to do it.”
And it was not the first time Biden did the same thing. Just weeks ago, during his most recent debate with Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, the former VP coughed into his hand — and none of the moderators said anything about it.
There would be around-the-clock coverage of the cough and Twitter would have #Coughgate trending.
