Shortly before the 2020 election, one of Joe Biden’s primary promises was that he was the man with the plan to “shut down the virus”:
I'm not going to shut down the country.
I'm not going to shut down the economy.
I'm going to shut down the virus.

Ever since Biden took office, there’s been a bit of an attempt to pivot away from that promise, and today was no different:

Gee, it sure seems like the level of promises vs. the reality we’re seeing aren’t quite matching up!
I thought they had a plan.

The messaging on COVID-19 from the Biden camp sure did take a massive turn after the election.

Somewhere between “soon” and never” seems to be what the “team with a plan” is telling everybody.
