Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin should be “commended” for dining out in Manhattan this week while infected with the contagious COVID-19, former Republican presidential candidate and avid Donald Trump supporter Michele Bachmann insisted.

Palin should “be commended because she’s trying to act like a normal human being in America’s biggest city,” the former Minnesota representative said on Fox News’ “Jesse Watters Primetime” on Friday.

Bachmann declared that it is time to “start to resume normal American life… instead of hiding in our basements”, where the unvaccinated cannot infect anyone else. Palin, who opposes COVID vaccines, has said she would get vaccinated “on my dead body.”

Palin is in New York for her libel trial against The New York Times, but the trial has been delayed until next week after she tested positive for COVID-19, the judge announced Monday. US District Judge Jed Rakoff noted: “She is, of course, not vaccinated.”

The city’s health guidelines advise anyone who tests positive for the coronavirus to self-quarantine for at least five days. However, Palin was seen dining at Elio’s on Manhattan’s Upper East Side two days after her positive test was reported. She was seen without a mask and sitting close to other people in a heated outdoor dining room.

The former Alaska governor also dined inside the restaurant last Saturday, in violation of New York City law. vaccination mandate for indoor dining. The manager told The New York Times that the restaurant “you made a mistake” by not checking Proof of Palin’s vaccination record (which she does not have) during her visit on Saturday.

A spokesman for New York Mayor Eric Adams (D) encouraged anyone close to Palin on her nights out on the town to immediately get tested for COVID.

A City Council statement added: “The key to the New York City rules were put in place to protect all New Yorkers — including the small businesses that drive our city’s economy. Mrs. Palin needs to respect small business workers and follow the rules like everyone else.”
