Retiring Ohio Senator Rob Portman has confirmed he’s tested positive for Covid-19 before he was scheduled to return to Washington, D.C.

The Hill reports:

“In preparation for returning to Washington, DC, I took an at-home COVID test last night and it was positive. I am asymptomatic and feel fine. I have been in contact with the Attending Physician and my personal doctor,” Portman said in a statement.

“I am following their medical advice and following CDC guidelines and isolating for the recommended five days. I will work remotely from home this week, but will not be able to be in Washington, DC for votes,” he added.

Portman revealed in November 2020 that he was participating in a COVID-19 phase three vaccine clinical trial being developed by Johnson & Johnson.

Since then, he has been a vocal advocate for vaccines. In July he wrote on Twitter “If you haven’t been vaccinated, I strongly encourage you to get your shot,” adding, “It could save your life!”

“If you haven’t been vaccinated, I strongly encourage you to get your shot,” and “If you have been vaccinated you can run the same risk and die.

HOW CAN THESE JABSBE CALLED VACCINES WHEN THEY DO NOT HAVE THE CLINICAL DATA NECESSARY OR PATENT? THEY CAN BE USED ONLY IN EMERGENCY USE. SO ALL THE VACCINATED, WE’RE INFORMED THEY WERE PART OF A TRIAL GROUP?

We are assuming that these who have positive test results are true ? I read a statistic 6 or 8 months ago that 98% of these so called covid test results were bogus.

first of all they can tell you it’s positive for c19 but in reality we have no idea if C19 is anything different than pneumonia or bronchial pneumonia. With these officials it’s like the telephone game one whisper into the ear and by the time it gets to being said out loud it’s not anything but gebrish

Who cares about the RINO.
He’s mostly a traitor to his constituents. Loves to go along with the krakas.

I saw this today: “If I got the smallpox vaccination four times in a year and still got smallpox, I’d have questions.”

So, we have a Republican senator who sides mostly with Democrats Socialist programs and votes with Democrats more often than not, who has been pushing vaccines in the same way that Democrats do, and who now, even though fully vaccinated with at least three vaccine shots, has the Wuhan virus. At what point do we admit that vaccines are doing more harm than good?
