It’s so weird how the science changes with polling numbers.
Congress lifted the mask requirement on the House floor on Monday, the day before Biden gives his State of the Union.
I’m laughing. SCIENCE!
The members who attend must have a COVID test before entering the chambers. The mask is optional.
Pelosi instilled strict mask rules in July 2021. She threatened to have the Capitol police arrest house staffers and visitors who break the mask mandate. She fined House members who did not wear a mask on the floor.
In early February, Pelosi threatened to remove SOTU attendees who did not abide by the social distancing and mask rules.
But now it’s okay…because Biden’s polling reflects the crap job he has done across the board.
The science, though. The science! Leslie blogged about the CDC changing its mask guidelines. Everyone knows the CDC changed the guidelines to provide cover for Biden’s awful presidency.
It’s never been about science. It’s always been about politics. Politico admitted the Democrats’ change of heart on masks is a farce.
Now Biden can attempt to take a victory lap like the one he tried to do on July 4th. Optics:
Seating for Biden’s first address to a joint session of Congress, last April, was capped at about 200 — about 20% of usual capacity for a presidential presentation — and White House aides fretted that a repeat would be a dissonant image from the message the president aimed to deliver to the American people.
“I think you’re going to see it look much more like a normal state of the union than the president’s joint address,” White House chief of staff Ron Klain said Saturday. “It’s going to look like the most normal thing people have seen in Washington in a long time.”
