As you learned Tuesday, the governors of Texas and Mississippi announced that they’re lifting the mask mandates in their states and allowing businesses to reopen at full capacity. President Biden, who on Tuesday said that he hopes the country will be back to normal “by this time next year,” weighed in, calling it “Neanderthal thinking.”

White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki was also asked about Texas reopening and said that the entire country has paid the price for political leaders who “ignored the science.”

Lots of people have suffered, including small business owners and school students.

Remember, it was a “mistake in the communication” when Psaki explained that Biden’s idea of schools being open was more than half of them having in-person instruction one day a week by the end of April. Why doesn’t Psaki circle back on that?

We honestly don’t even know what the latest recommendation is: two masks? Three masks? The science keeps changing.
