Yesterday, the Biden administration announced their intent to appeal Judge Kathryn Kimball Mizelle’s ruling that struck down the mask mandate on airplanes and other public transportation.

The White House has put the ball in the CDC’s court. OK, then.

The CDC has spent the past couple of years making decisions and issuing directives based less on science and more on helping Democrats maintain their stranglehold on Americans’ daily lives, so of course they’d support renewing the mandate. Gotta keep those boots on our necks! What’s funny is that the CDC’s commitment to keeping everyone masked up for as long as possible could ultimately be the Democratic Party’s undoing this November. But we’ll come back to that.

Earlier today, former FDA commissioner and CNBC contributor Dr. Scott Gottlieb also weighed in on the mask mandates being lifted:

Hol’ up, doc … lifting mask mandates could potentially erode the CDC’s authority? Newsflash: The CDC’s authority, or at least their credibility, has already been eroded — by the CDC.

Oh, Dr. Gottlieb … oh, CDC … you guys are hilarious. Not on purpose, maybe, but still hilarious.

Hey, why doesn’t Congress expand the CDC’s authority? After all, the midterms are already shaping up to be a bloodbath for the Democrats … they might as well go out with a bang.
