Psaki won’t say if Biden knew of spiked plan to mass-mail COVID testsVanity Fair reported last month that, a group of health experts from Harvard and other groups pitched a plan to mass-distribute tests before Christmas to prevent a winter surge. Of course he knew but again we see that Biden will not take responsibility for anything he & his admin does or doesn't do. We continue to see Biden's junior varsity squad failing to step up to the plate. He doesn’t know anything that’s going on! Would love to know who is really running the shit show !

Biden says nation weary from COVID, but US in a better placeWASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden acknowledged Wednesday that the pandemic has left Americans exhausted and demoralized but insisted at a news conference marking his first year in office that he has “outperformed” expectations. Have we reached pre-pandemic job levels yet? Has he “created” any jobs as President yet or no? “You will play because there’s nothing for you to do on weekends.” It’s not true! I can put new words and Kanjis into my Anki, read, solve my lists of school problems… I’ll sign Netflix again to practice listening, learn German. It all sounds funny and enjoyable to me.
Biden: We could have handled COVID-19 testing betterPresident Biden admitted on Wednesday that his administration should have put more of an emphasis on COVID-19 testing last year. “Could have handled it better” should be his re-election campaign slogan. It defines everything he has done so far, from Afghanistan to Covid. 😂
