President Biden in a “deplorables” moment on Wednesday offensively accused states of being guilty of “Neanderthal thinking” if they choose to drop their mask mandates and other COVID restrictions

“I think it’s a big mistake. I hope everyone has realized right now these masks make a difference,” Biden lectured. “We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because of the way in which we are able to get vaccines in people’s arms.”

“The last thing — the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime, everything’s fine, take off your mask, forget it. It still matters,” Biden admonished.

Biden’s caustic labeling comes after both Texas and Mississippi issued executive orders on Tuesday that nix mask mandates and let businesses finally open up at 100 percent capacity. The president allegedly does not have the power to overrule governors and other state and local officials concerning these mandates.

After Biden’s insulting remarks, Republican Mississippi Governor Tate Reeves tore into him: “President Biden said allowing Mississippians to decide how to protect themselves is ‘Neanderthal thinking.’ Mississippians don’t need handlers,” Reeves tweeted.

“As numbers drop, they can assess their choices and listen to experts. I guess I just think we should trust Americans, not insult them,” he added.

“Our hospitalizations and case numbers have plummeted, and the vaccine is being rapidly distributed,” he also tweeted on Tuesday. “It is time!”

Reeves also stated that Biden is out of touch with his constituents who live outside the Beltway: “Today I feel the same way as I did the day that Hillary Clinton called all of us in Middle America ‘deplorables,’” the governor told Fox News. “When President Biden said that we were all Neanderthals, it struck me as someone who needs to get outside of Washington, D.C., and actually travel to Middle America.”

Texas Governor Greg Abbott’s spokesperson Renae Eze stated that the governor was “clear in telling Texans that COVID hasn’t ended and that all Texans should follow medical advice and safe practices to continue containing COVID.”

“The fact is, Texas now has the tools and knowledge to combat COVID while also allowing Texans and small businesses to make their own decisions,” Eze declared. “It is clear from the recoveries, the vaccinations, the reduced hospitalizations, and the safe practices that Texans are using, that state mandates are no longer needed. We must now do more to restore livelihoods and normalcy for Texans.”

Dr. Anthony Fauci was incensed that states would drop their mask mandates and reopen for business: “It‘s just inexplicable why you would want to pull back now,” Fauci whined to CNN. “I understand the need to want to get back to normality, but you‘re only going to set yourself back if you just completely push aside the public health guidelines, particularly when we‘re dealing with anywhere from 55,000 to 75,000 infections per day in the United States. That‘s a very, very high baseline.“

Sen. John Cornyn (R-TX) scolded Biden for his derogatory comments on Wednesday. “President Biden has a lot of problems to take care of. He’s got a crisis at the border that he calls a challenge and not a crisis,” Cornyn noted. “So I don’t think he’s got a lot to say about preaching to my state about how we’ve handled this COVID-19 virus.”

Republican Montana Governor Greg Gianforte did away with his state’s mask mandate two weeks ago. He informed Biden on Twitter exactly how he feels about the “Neanderthal thinking” pejorative:

If making data-driven decisions to reopen, loving freedom, and trying to get back to normal is what a Neanderthal would do, then well, I guess you can count me as one.



Rep. Dan Crenshaw (R-TX) also weighed in on Twitter over the name-calling by Biden:

“Freedom of choice for Americans: ‘Neanderthal thinking’

Opening borders to illegal immigrants with COVID: “compassion.”’

Joe Biden-What you get when you order a president and get a cheap Chinese knockoff instead.

The Border Patrol has released into Texas more than 100 migrants who tested positive for COVID-19 under new directives signed by President Joe Biden, as more migrants gather in Mexico demanding entry.

Felipe Romero, a spokesman for the city of Brownsville, told Fox News that the 108 migrants who tested positive are about 6.3 percent of the total number of migrants rapidly tested at the city’s primary bus station ahead of being released by the Border Patrol.

Romero told the network that the city doesn’t have the power to prevent migrants who test positive from traveling elsewhere in the United States. Rather, Brownsville health officials are instructing the migrants to self-quarantine, socially distance, and follow other guidelines issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Meanwhile, White House sources told Fox News Wednesday they know of instances involving individuals who are still traveling about the country even though they have tested positive for the virus and have been instructed to quarantine. Still, the Biden administration hasn’t changed its so-called ‘catch and release’ policy, which is a reversal of Trump-era enforcement priorities and the former president’s “Return to Mexico” program.

“The city of Brownsville also told Noticias Telemundo Investiga that it is advising migrants who test positive to go to NGOs and nonprofits in the area for help with finding shelter and places they can isolate themselves from others. The local county-wide positivity rate is estimated to be 13.8 percent,” Fox News added.

Meanwhile, more migrants have been making the trek to the U.S.-Mexico border in recent weeks since Biden signed a series of executive orders that critics say have contributed to a new crisis.

A group of migrants was seen wearing t-shirts at the San Ysidro crossing port in Tijuana, Baja California, echoing the message on a sign one of them holding: “Biden, please let us in!”

Migrants wishing to enter the U.S. are hopeful that the Biden White House will be more lenient in terms of border enforcement, Fox News reported separately. That would include being able to enter under claims of asylum, which were dramatically curbed during the Trump administration.

Recent surges have driving illegal immigration rates up past levels that were considered ‘crisis’ in the past, even during the Obama administration. But the current White House has refrained from using the term.

On Tuesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas pushed back on use of the term, saying instead that the administration was dealing with a “challenge” at the southwest border that authorities are “managing.”

He also issued an advisory to migrants considering making the trip.

“A message to those individuals who are thinking of coming to our border: They need to wait,” he said, echoing an earlier statement by Secretary of State Antony Blinken during a virtual border tour earlier this month.

“It takes time to rebuild the system from scratch. If they come, if families come, if single adults come, we are obligated to … return them” under the Trump Administration’s Title 42 rule, Mayorkas said.

“We are not saying don’t come,” he continued. “We are saying don’t come now.”

De Blasio: “We want to encourage” NYers going out. "If you’re under 50 & you’re healthy, which is most NYers, there’s very little threat here. This disease, even if you were to get it, basically acts like a common cold or flu. And transmission is not that easy."
So, what does this stellar leader of New York City suggest on March 2nd? He suggests to go to the movies, again, in spite of COVID-19:
“Since I’m encouraging New Yorkers to go on with your lives + get out on the town despite Coronavirus, I thought I would offer some suggestions. Here’s the first: thru Thurs 3/5 go see ‘The Traitor’. If ‘The Wire’ was a true story + set in Italy, it would be this film.”
Even on March 11th, de Blasio was still saying to just keep things going on as normal:
“If you’re not sick, you should be going about your life.”

Biden and Sanders were holding rallies in March and Biden was getting in the faces of his supporters wanting to fight them. Dems and Biden called Trump a xenophobe and said to ignore him and his warnings about Covid.

One reason there are not 400,000 Covid deaths...Any death...no matter the cause...is listed as Covid...even a motorcycle accident...IF the person tests positive for the virus. THEN the actual cause of death is listed on the death certificate. Odd eh? Talk to the CDC to see why they do that.

Another 'do as I say, not as I do Neanderthal. Who the heck dug up old Lurch Kerry?

Climate czar John Kerry called it “malarkey” after he was caught maskless reading a book on an American Airlines flight despite a mandate from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention requiring masks be worn on all public transportation.

The Tennessee Star first published the now-infamous photo of Kerry in First Class with his mask hanging off one ear. The passenger who took the pic wishes to remain anonymous but the photo has been verified.

The former secretary of state was seen wearing his mask while boarding ahead of other passengers. When he got seated, he evidently took off his mask.
