Former Vice President Joe Biden and his transition team have made a number of strong promises to the American people with regard to how they plan on combatting the growing spread of COVID-19.
However, for a politician in the “follow the science!” party, Joe Biden has been caught pushing COVID-19 mitigation plans that all share one similar characteristic: It’s all arbitrary and it’s based on nothing other than political sloganeering.
There are several examples of that, including Biden’s controversial pledge to require Americans to wear a mask for 100 days. That number has nothing to do with science, whatsoever, and one can even argue that it likely won’t make a shred of difference, given that Americans have worn their masks for the better part of nine months now and we still face the same issues.
The number “100,” as Zachary Faria of the Washington Examiner pointed out, is nothing more than a catchy political slogan that incoming presidents use to make it sound as if they’re on the ball and ready to tackle the issues at hand.
Another example is Biden’s promise to get 100 million vaccinations out in the first 100 days of his presidency. In reality, his vaccination distribution plans are extremely similar to President Donald Trumps’ plans, but the mainstream media never calls Biden out on that.
The former vice president has also called on the nation’s governors to open up the schools by the end of his first 100 days in the White House as if that’s the magical, unicorn number that we must adhere to on anything related to COVID-19.
Thinking in realistic terms, schools should be opening now, especially as Dr. Anthony Fauci — the revered-by-the-left medical expert — said that schools should be open given the low rates of COVID-19 transmission among schoolchildren, according to Business Insider.
It’s one thing for an incoming president to promise the world to Americans with their “100 days” wishlist, but using that age-old gimmick in an attempt to promise the end of a novel virus plaguing the nation is nothing short of irresponsible politicking.
