Republicans wasted no time slamming Joe Biden after the flip-flopping president said ‘there is no federal solution’ to combatting COVID-19 on Monday despite draconian measures that have included federal mask and vaccine mandates.
The GOP, citing a comment Biden made in October 2020, released a tweet implying the president did an about-face on his commitment to battling the pandemic, which has come back with a vengeance with the highest amount of cases in a day since January – before vaccines were created.
‘BIDEN, TODAY: “There is no federal solution’ to COVID,”‘ the Republican National Committee tweeted, and included footage of the president from Monday’s meeting with 25 governors.
‘BIDEN, 2020: “I’m going to shut down the virus.”‘
Alex Jones lays out how the scales of criticism have been tilted to the point of no return, and now, he must attack Trump for the part he played in pushing deadly vaccines on the population.
The president’s comments came as the CDC cut in half isolation restrictions for Americans who catch COVID from 10 to five days, and similarly shortened the time that close contacts need to quarantine.
The restrictions come as several industries face staff shortages caused by the federal mandates and the administration’s failure to provide adequate testing.
Biden’s supporters quickly rushed to his defense, alleging Republicans took his remarks out of context.
‘This deceptively-edited clip put out by the RNC and several GOP Members of Congress of Biden [sic] today creates the false impression that Biden is giving up on battling COVID,’ defense attorney Ron Filipkowski said. ‘This is a total lie’.
Filipkowski claimed the now-viral clip of Biden was ‘a total lie’ and edited to suggest he is ‘quitting on dealing with COVID and just throwing it to the states.’
