“He’s not in charge.”
Biden’s handlers are out in full force as they attempt to control the fallout of Biden’s 60 Minutes interview that aired over the weekend. One of Biden’s more controversial comments: “the pandemic is over.”
An administration official told CNN that “the President’s comments do not mark a change in policy toward the administration’s handling of the virus, and there are no plans to lift the Public Health Emergency.”
So who’s running the show here?
The current pandemic emergency status is still extended through Oct. 13.
“He is not in charge,” tweeted The Spectator contributing editor Stephen Miller, sharing the CNN headline “White House says Covid-19 policy unchanged despite Biden’s comments that the ‘pandemic is over.’”

“It wasn’t a gaffe. It wasn’t a slip,” Miller addd. “He said it pretty definitely twice. In the same interview he dared anyone who questioned his mental fitness. Here’s the example. Right here.”
“Biden reportedly complains that he looks weak. This is why. His own administration undercuts him every time he opens his mouth,” he wrote, and then asked, “Is he in charge or not?”
From Fox News:
Republican communications figure Matt Whitlock remarked, “Fascinating that the White House walked back Biden’s comments on Taiwan and COVID, but decided to let his comments that ‘historic inflation is no big deal’ stand.”
“Like clockwork. Biden’s handlers are out in force,” commented Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas.
Claremont Institute communications director Nick Short asked “Who/what is?” in response to the notion that Biden isn’t in charge of his own administration.
“Hint: it will never be ‘over.’ they gained too much from lockdowns, mandates, and wealth transfer. They permanently reorganized the country over a virus. You think they would give that up voluntarily? It’s not going away,” tweeted conservative commentator Logan Hall.

Biden is a sick man. Please AMERICA get him out of office.
