Now that we’re in an election year where Democrats see their political fortunes slipping away in real time, they and their co-conspirators in the media have decided we should all take a quick break from “The Science.”
Democrats in New Jersey, New York, California, Oregon, Delaware, Connecticut, Illinois, and Rhode Island in recent days have said to heck with the CDC and are beginning to loosen up their beloved restrictions and mask mandates.
Less than a month ago, the U.S. was averaging more than 800,000 new Covid infections each day, the highest number seen during the entire pandemic, and quadruple the rate of infections that occurred during its peak under President Trump. But because case numbers are finally falling, New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney on Wednesday credited “Democrats’ plan to fight COVID,” which he said is “working.” Therefore, he said, “It’s time to give people their lives back.”
Democrats taketh away and Democrats giveth back.
Rep. Hakeem Jeffries, also of New York, said that the falling case counts aren’t happening “by accident” but because “under President Biden’s leadership, a public health infrastructure was put into place … to ensure that we can do everything possible to crush the virus, and that is what has been happening.”
Dr. Leana Wen, CNN’s omnipresent Covid nag, declared with glee this week that “the science has changed!” and that the rules for mask-wearing should “shift” from government mandate to “individual responsibility.”
