This certainly sounds familiar. President Biden, a day before unilaterally extending the unconstitutional eviction moratorium, said that he was checking with legal scholars to see if it would pass constitutional muster, with the bulk telling him no, it wouldn’t. Gene Sperling, who is responsible for overseeing the implementation of President Biden’s American Rescue Plan, said the administration was doubling, tripling, even quadrupling down on looking into its legal options.
Now Biden is “checking” to see if he can mandate masks in schools nationwide. He doesn’t think he can, but he’s checking.

The New York Post reports:
President Biden said Tuesday that his administration is examining whether he can order universal masking in public schools, overriding Republican governors in states like Florida and Texas.
“I don’t believe that I do [have that power], thus far,” Biden told reporters during an event in the East Room of the White House. “We’re checking that.”
Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis has threatened to withhold paychecks of administrators and school board members who mandate masks, but Jen Psaki said the Biden administration might step in and pay them:

When has a law ever been passed requiring masks?
Imagine being dictated by someone who has to be reminded what his name is at least three times a day.

Just checked the Constitution. Turns out he doesn’t.

No chance. Read the Constitution. Jackass.
— Chris Castaldo (@Castaldo2016) August 10, 2021
Who is he checking with? All he has to do is read the Constitution. Can he still read? Obviously doubtful.

He found the power to defy the Supreme Court on the eviction moratorium, what’s he checking for now? He has nothing to lose than just to make up the authority.

Great. He'll decide he doesn't, tell everyone multiple times he doesn't, and then do it anyway.

Does he care if he has legal power? That's not usually something he cares about.

Why does it seem like our Government is always pushing around the edges of legality?
That is not how a healthy system runs

Remember, though, that Jen Psaki assured us Biden’s power-grab over evictions was a “temporary, temporary” end-run around the Constitution, so his universal mask mandate will also be temporary until the teachers’ unions declare it safe again to go withough masks.
