Defending Joe Biden really is a full time job.
On Thursday, Press Sec. Jen Psaki was tasked with defending her boss’ rant against the Republican Governors who allow their citizens to live freely without face coverings.
When asked about the decisions by the Republican governors to lift mask mandates, Biden said, “The last thing we need is a Neanderthal thinking everything is fine, that it’s time to take off your mask.” Biden could barely get his sentence out.
A reporter asked if Biden comparison of Republicans to Neanderthals is a useful way to get the American people on board with the their public health message.

Psaki deflected, justifying Biden’s words as a mere “reflection of his frustration and exasperation” over Americans not wearing masks.
It goes without saying, but Psaki went on to blame Former President Trump for failing to properly educate the American people masks.
“Many times the American people have not had the correct information coming from the federal government. They haven’t had a clear understanding of what proper public health guidelines should look like,” she said through her teeth.
