Biden’s Ever-Shifting Position on COVID-19 ‘Emergency,’ Exploited Purely for Political Gain – Maybe Biden really cares about the nation’s COVID-19 response. Maybe he’s really trying to balance restrictions against the need for family members to be together, students to be in school, and businesses to be open. If so, he seems to have much worse information than the rest of us. COVID-19 conditions have not changed as haphazardly as Biden’s policies have. If he’s operating in good faith, then he isn’t operating smartly. But maybe he isn’t operating in good faith. Maybe he’s just following the Democratic strategy of never letting a useful crisis go to waste. There is, after all, a curious overlap between his shifting position on COVID-19 and his political agenda at the time. In any case, what we can say for sure is that if you want to know whether there’s still a real COVID-19 emergency, the last person you should ask is Biden. Heritage Expert: GianCarlo Canaparo
