Joe Biden is watching helplessly as multiple crises threaten to overwhelm his administration.
But Biden thought he had an ace in the hole that could bail him out of any trouble.
Those plans were dashed when Joe Biden was faced with a humiliating defeat on his signature issue.
Joe Biden intended to stake his presidency on his management of the coronavirus pandemic.
Critics contend Biden just adopted the Trump administration’s plan for distributing the coronavirus vaccines developed by Trump’s Operation Warp Speed and would claim credit for defeating the virus.
But Biden’s credibility on such matters is now shot.
Like all coronavirus fearmongers, Biden made a big to-do about “following the science” which meant maintaining lockdowns and mask mandates.
The state of Texas was the latest test case to prove that masks and lockdowns play no role in stopping the spread of the virus.
Two months after lifting all restrictions on businesses and its mask mandate, Texas Governor Greg Abbott reported that on May 16 the state recorded zero coronavirus deaths and that cases were down nearly 60 percent from before he lifted the mask mandate and lockdown.
“Today Texas reported: * 0 Covid related deaths–the only time that’s happened since data was tracked in March, 2020. * the fewest Covid cases in over 13 months * the lowest 7-day Covid positivity rate ever * the lowest Covid hospitalizations in 11 months. Thanks, Texans!” Governor Abbott posted on social media.
Back in March, Joe Biden blasted Governor Abbott for ending the lockdown and mask mandate.
Like so much of the “follow the science” crowd, Biden was sure Texas invited disaster.
“I think it’s a big mistake,” Biden told reporters at the time.
Biden even went so far as to claim that governors that ignored the coronavirus hysterics among the so-called “public health experts” were engaged in “Neanderthal thinking.”
“The last thing, the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime, everything’s fine, take off your mask, forget it,” Biden stated.
“It’s critical, critical, critical that they follow the science,” Biden added.
Biden mocked Governor Abbott and other Republican governors that shook free of the left’s religious belief in masks and lockdowns.
“I know you all know that,” Biden told reporters. “I wish to heck some of our elected officials knew it.”
Even at the time Biden made these comments, it was really Biden and his public health tyrants that refused to follow the science.
Florida had been open since last May and never required masks and the situation in the Sunshine State never spiraled out of control.
In fact, Florida had better numbers in terms of per capita deaths than high population blue states like California and New York where governors imposed the strictest lockdowns and mask mandates in the country.
If anyone should have been called to account by the media for their comments and actions on the coronavirus, it should have been Joe Biden for advocating for mask mandates and lockdowns when the real-world example of Florida proved that you could keep the economy open and protect vulnerable populations without imposing mask mandates and lockdowns.
Now thanks to Texas’s success in controlling the virus despite being fully open and not having a mask mandate, Joe Biden is facing renewed criticism over his failed approach to COVID.
