Biden Says States Are Responsible For COVID Resolution, ‘The Five’ Responds

| Latest News Headlines | Google News

The “The Five” panel reacted on Monday to President Biden’s call with governors in which it attempted to ricochet some responsibility for COVID-19 from states.

Tyrus Murdoch said: “Their whole argument, this whole administration, is that COVID was not going anywhere and they were going to be prepared. And again, [it was] fantasy world. The administration has woken up, it is not prepared. “

During Monday’s call, Biden said a “federal response” is not key to tackling the COVID-19 pandemic, but requires a “state-level” resolution. Biden pointed to the long lines at test sites over Christmas weekend amid the omicron wave. He said: “Seeing how difficult it was for some people to take a test this weekend shows that we have more work to do.”

Katie Pavlich said she believed the president was sidestepping responsibility for the pandemic and resorted to “blaming” governors during the call.

Biden had said he would beat the virus in the 2020 election and reassured he was ready to face the national crisis.

“When will they one day just be responsible and tell us the truth? [stuff], what exactly is happening instead? “asked Tyrus.” It’s pretty much the same. And Americans are confused, frustrated, and rightly so. “
