As Twitchy reported earlier, President Joe Biden gave a briefing on COVID-19 on his fake White House set with the snow in the digital windows and said a lot of things that were objectively false — he still insists this is a pandemic of the unvaccinated even though those with the booster are still catching and spreading the coronavirus.

We will credit him with insisting that schools can and should be open. But the same president who just before Christmas said the unvaccinated are “looking at a winter of severe illness and death” now says there are a lot of reasons to be hopeful in 2020.

Skip ahead to about 1:05 if you can’t stand to hear him speak.

That’s right; it was 2020 when he said he was going to shut down the virus in 2021.

Maybe he thinks he’s still campaigning.

That’s a good way of putting it. Masking up, getting boosters on top of boosters, vaccine passports … lots of reasons to be hopeful.
