President Joe Biden was forced to school Fox News “reporter” Peter Doocy after he shouted out a “gotcha” question about masks as the new coronavirus Delta variant continues to spread across the country due to unvaccinated Americans who refuse to wear them.
After speaking to the press on Thursday, Doocy misquoted Biden’s own words to make it sound as if Biden had declared back in May that the pandemic was a thing of the past and that Americans no longer had to wear a mask.
“If you are fully vaccinated you no longer need to wear a mask,” Doocy claimed Biden had said at the time.
But because conservatives largely refuse to get vaccinated in their latest attempt the “own the libs” and don’t want to wear a mask either, the Delta variant has spread uncontrollably, especially in red states where vaccination rates are lower.
Biden could have ignored Doocy. After all, Doocy is just a troll who only has his job because his daddy is “Fox & Friends” host Steve Doocy. But Biden confronted him head-on and humiliated him.
“No, I didn’t say that. I said if you’re fully vaccinated in an area where you do not have – well let me clarify that,” Biden began before Doocy interrupted.
“In May, you made it sound like a vaccine was the ticket to losing the masks forever,” Doocy said.
“That was true at the time,” Biden pointed out. “A new variant came along, they didn’t get vaccinated, it was spread more rapidly and more people were getting sick. That’s the difference.”

Biden is correct. Had every American simply gotten vaccinated it’s quite possible that we may not have to be wearing masks anymore. But conservatives apparently want the pandemic to drag out because they want Biden to fail, even if that means more Americans die.
Over 600,000 Americans have already died because of Republican incompetence. Now cases have skyrocketed because they continue to refuse to take it seriously. They don’t believe in science. And as a result, only 56 percent of Americans have received at least one dose of the vaccine, lower than what is required to achieve herd immunity.
Once again, it’s because Republican lawmakers are attacking masks and vaccines despite being vaccinated themselves. The GOP is a death cult. In fact, Republicans are even ghoulishly laughing about the death toll.
Clearly, this country needs a national vaccination mandate and for Republicans to be ousted from office. Because if conservatives have their way, the pandemic will never end.
