(WATCH) Maskless Biden Blames Major Voice Change On ‘Cold,’ Not COVID (VIDEO)

During a press conference on Friday, President Biden spoke in an abnormally deep voice. The president said the startling sound of his voice was only due to “a cold”. Biden was speaking about the poor November employment report and concerns over COVID-19.

The unusual tone of Biden’s voice was picked up by both journalists in the room and others who were watching online, sparking a frenzy of speculation and speculation on the internet.

“I’m OK. I have a test every day to see, a COVID test, they check me for all the strains,” Biden said when asked about his new voice. “What I have is a 1½-year-old grandson who had a cold who likes to kiss his pop.”

In addition, the 79-year-old president stated that “he’d been kissing… but it was just a cold.”

BBC News journalist Tara Mckelvey, who was in the State Dining Room for the speech said, “His voice is deep and hoarse. He’s intensely focused on the teleprompter.”

Josh Kruger, a journalist, said on Twitter, “Joe Biden’s voice is so low right now he gives Barry White a run for his money. The President’s typical warm tenor timbre has dropped about eleventy thousand octaves, and he’s now a true bass.”

Business Insider’s Bryan Metzger said, “i, for one, like biden’s weird sick voice.”

As the new and potentially more infectious Omicron variant of COVID-19 has made its way into the United States this week, Biden’s voice has become the newest source of concern for his health.

On Thursday, while making a speech on his COVID-19 “winter plan” at the National Institutes of Health in Maryland, the president constantly cleared his throat.

Upon returning after the event, a journalist inquired about the president’s health. Biden responded positively.

“I’m in fantastic shape!” the 79-year-old Biden claimed.

During his speech, Biden acted unphased over the “sharpest one-year decline in unemployment ever” by stressing gains made earlier this calendar year.

Speaking on the pandemic, Biden said, “I was thrilled to see that yesterday we had more vaccine shots administered than any day in the past six months.” CDC Data suggests that 83 percent of U.S. adults have received at least one vaccine shot and 7r percent of Americans over the age of 5 have also received one shot or more.
