Sometimes, folks, the writing is just on the wall, and it’s up to each and every one of us to recognize that. Of course, this has always been a difficult concept for politicians – particularly those who may be getting up there in age.
Such is the case with President Joe Biden, who is apparently going to hang onto the CDC’s “official” mask mandate, despite the fact that a great many Democrats are following the science in the other direction.
News broke that New York Gov. Kathy Hochul and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker will announce their decisions to lift mask mandates in their states after a flood of other Democrat governors led the way forward.
Earlier this week, Democrat governors, including New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy, Delaware Gov. John Carney, Connecticut Gov. Ned Lamont, Oregon Gov. Kate Brown, and California Gov. Gavin Newsom, announced their decisions to lift mask mandates in their states.
The White House on Tuesday signaled they would not be lifting mask mandates, indicating that instead Biden would follow the advice of the CDC.
“The CDC moves at the pace of data and science,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said during the daily press briefing.
This is but the latest indication of a White House that is out-of-touch with the facts on the ground, and could provide an ample bit of ammunition for those seeking to highlight the Democrats’ dysfunction during the upcoming midterm elections.
