Texas Gov. Greg Abbott fired back at President Biden for calling his lifting of the state’s facemask mandate “neanderthal thinking.”
Abbott made two good points: First, that’s not something a President should be saying (particularly one whose sole qualification for replacing the previous President was his claim that he doesn't call people names), and second, the biggest COVID threat in Texas right now is coming from Biden himself.
He’s the one who’s brought back the terrible immigration policies that are igniting a new wave of illegal border crossings, with those captured being released inside the US. And we know some of the ones recently picked up tested positive for COVID-19. Some of them got on buses in Brownsville and headed deeper into the US, with the city saying it didn’t have the authority to stop them.
You know, you’d think that even a Neanderthal would have enough sense not to just stand around doing nothing when something threatening entered his family’s cave. That’s a good way to get eaten by a saber-toothed tiger.
