Unvaccinated Sarah Palin Infected With COVID For Second Time

Posted January 24, 2022 by with 11 comments

The failed politician—who is truly one of the stupidest people to ever walk the earth—has previously said that she’d only be vaccinated “over her dead body.” Well, best of luck to her with that. Via CNBC:

Unvaccinated former Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin tested positive for Covid, a federal judge told a courtroom before he postponed the scheduled start Monday of a defamation trial involving the one-time Alaska governor and The New York Times that was set to begin.

Palin’s civil suit against the Times now will be heard by a jury in Manhattan federal court on Feb. 3 as a result of her Covid-19 status.

Judge Jed Rakoff announced in court Monday that he learned Sunday evening that the 57-year-old Palin was again positive for the virus.

“She is of course unvaccinated,” Rakoff said. After a second test confirmed Palin was positive for Covid, Rakoff postponed the trial start date to February.

The mother of five sued the Times and its former editorial page editor for allegedly damaging her reputation with a 2017 editorial that suggested an image produced by Palin’s political action committee incited the 2011 shooting of Rep. Gabby Giffords of Arizona.

And despite her infection delaying the trial today, the unvaccinated Alaskan bimbo was seen in a restaurant on Saturday night, despite the city’s vaccine mandate for indoor dining. Via NYT:

Sarah Palin, who is not vaccinated against the coronavirus, dined indoors Saturday night at Elio’s, an Italian restaurant on the Upper East Side of Manhattan that regularly draws celebrities, despite New York City’s requirement that all indoor guests show proof of vaccination. She tested positive for the virus on Monday.

“We just made a mistake,” said Luca Guaitolini, a manager for the restaurant, who was not working Saturday night but confirmed Ms. Palin’s visit. He said that the restaurant checked vaccination cards for all first-time customers but not for regulars who come each week, and that Ms. Palin had dined with a longtime guest, whom he declined to name.

“She probably just walked in and strolled over” to the table, Mr. Guaitolini said. “We are trying to get to the bottom of this.”

Ms. Palin’s lawyers did not immediately respond to a request for comment. Mr. Guaitolini said that the restaurant was notifying customers that they had been exposed to the coronavirus, and that the staff would be tested this week.

Palin (who can rot in hell) aside, this really is a great reminder of why the pandemic has not and will not ever end. Yes, there are so-called “rules” in place that you hear people talking about (and complaining about) all the time, but the reality is, the rules aren’t really enforced. Everything is wide open, no one really wears masks, no one social distances, businesses ignore vaccine requirements, and the virus continues to spread very easily.
