Biden is a huge bully and coward.
President Joe Biden is having a fantastical week! The man decided to hold a press briefing to threaten nursing homes and Republican governors in the name of the collective good while avoiding the elephant in the room: Afghanistan.
Get Vaccinated in Nursing Homes or No Money for Seniors
Biden told nursing homes the government will withhold Medicare and Medicaid funding if they do not require their staff to get the COVID vaccine:
“With this announcement, I’m using the power of the federal government as a payer of healthcare costs to ensure we reduce those risks to our most vulnerable seniors,” Mr. Biden said.
The administration plans to issue a new regulation through the Department of Health and Human Services that would make Medicare and Medicaid funding for nursing homes conditional on their staffs being vaccinated.
The White House said the new requirements, which will be drafted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, could take effect as early as next month and would affect more than 15,000 nursing homes that employ roughly 1.3 million workers.
Shorter Biden: Either do this or I’ll withhold something else that helps seniors.
What!? You sound so compassionate when you threaten to withhold money from seniors. Give me a break.

Biden Thinks Republican Governors Don’t Care About Children
Then Biden attacked Republican governors because they passed mandates that do not allow schools to instill mask mandates.
I have a problem with that. Let the parents and children decide. How about NO mandates?
Biden implied the Republican governors don’t care about children:
“Unfortunately, as we’ve seen throughout this pandemic, some politicians are trying to turn public safety measures – that is, children wearing masks in school – into political disputes for their own political gain,” Biden said. “Some are even trying to take power away from local educators by banning masks in school. They’re setting a dangerous tone.”
Biden condemned threats he said recently came from protesters in places like Tennessee, calling “the intimidation and threats we’re seeing across the country … wrong.”
“They’re unacceptable. I’ve said before, this isn’t about politics. It’s about keeping our children safe. It’s about taking on the virus together, united. I made it clear that I’ll stand with those who are trying to do the right thing,” the president added.
What a bully. Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis said the parents decide to mask their child. LIKE IT SHOULD BE.
Biden is taking power away from parents by basically telling schools they must mandate masks. That’s a dangerous tone, dude.

Now Biden is crying because he hasn’t slept and wants to go home to Delaware.
