Before the election, controlling the spread of Covid-19 was a mainstay on Joe Biden’s list of campaign promises. Here’s just one example:
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.

But something magically changed with Biden took office. Suddenly there either appears to have been a huge shift in the “science,” or Biden flat-out lied:
President Biden urges Congress to pass more COVID relief:

Seriously? Weren’t we told something very different in recent months?
Um. Didn't he campaign on the exact opposite of this? https://t.co/Jq4z5ygCuY

Gee, what happened?
"I will shut down the virus" must not actually mean "I will shut down the virus."
But the political promise bait & switch isn't surprising coming from the 8-year VP to the "if you like your plan you can keep it" president. https://t.co/Tb2yMnrZC0

Campaign Biden: We’re going to shut this virus down!
Post-inauguration Biden: Yeah there’s actually nothing we can do.

The differences between promises and reality are becoming increasingly clear and it’s only day four of the Biden presidency.
So instead of crushing the virus he decided to crush the economy, girls sports and immigration law instead.

I guess we can stop wearing masks, open up all businesses and open all schools. Since you know, there is nothing we can do. https://t.co/zbAMzHuCgt

Not what I expected to hear from the man who claimed to have all the answers to ending the pandemic. https://t.co/eIQ1c9Ing8

And now he's calling a lid for the weekend.
Hopefully somebody's keeping track of the death count while he's not working.
That's the way this works, right? https://t.co/mjePow4aZb

That WAS how it worked. Biden gets the “Democrat” pass.
