As we told you earlier, the website to order those free Covid tests that the Biden administration has been promising for months now will go live on January 15:
Great news! Starting next week, you can order your COVID tests from the government just in time to get them long after they're of no use to you! https://t.co/sG1sjlbn04

But it’s worse than that. . .
People are just now fully understanding that the tests won’t even ship for 7-12 days, which means anyone who orders at test is at the mercy of the United States Post Office:
Americans shouldn’t expect a rapid turn-around on the orders and they will have to plan ahead and request the tests well before they meet federal guidelines for when to use a test. The White House said “tests will typically ship within 7-12 days of ordering” through USPS. https://t.co/cqGiwlSeoX

From “Operation Warp Speed” to “Operation Derp Speed” in record time:

So, sure, go with the USPS and not Amazon who specializes in rapid delivery:
NEW: The White House's https://t.co/p7imuWRW3N will launch Jan. 19. Anyone can order 4 tests per address.
The USPS is taking lead, since they already sell stuff online (like those ornaments I bought in 2020 because I thought it was my civic duty). https://t.co/kvhT8pKx78

And what’s even more amazing is the Biden administration is relying on the organization run by the HATED Trump holdover Louis DeJoy:
Fire Louis DeJoy.
Save the postal service!

Today is January 9th 2022.
Why is Louis DeJoy still Postmaster General of the United States?
— Chris Hahn (@ChristopherHahn) January 9, 2022
They’re literally trying to get him fired at the same time they’re relying on him to save them politically?
Still early enough on this beautiful Friday for the USPS Board of Governors to do their jobs and fire Louis DeJoy who, as a reminder, continues to serve at their pleasure.

And just a few days ago, Jen Psaki called him Louis “delay”:

If they’re mad about how fast medications get delivered, just wait to see what happens when the tests don’t fit in the mailboxes:
Despite seniors’ reliance on the #PostalService for their livelihood and live-saving medications, Postmaster General Louis DeJoy is still moving full speed ahead with his catastrophic 10-year austerity plan for the USPS. It’s past time for #DeJoy to go. https://t.co/nv981Tz7qn
