拜登此前曾声称他不会关闭经济, 但他会 “关闭病毒。”
“现在, how’s that going? 整个关闭病毒的事情?,” 英格拉汉姆问.
“Let’s look at the facts now, despite three widely available and free vaccines, along with employer and government mandates to force them on people, 几乎 352,000 Americans have died with COVID thus far during Biden’s first year in office. And while he didn’t shut down the economy, 好, his reckless agenda has flattened the curve on wage and GDP growth, inflation soaring.”
英格拉汉姆 argued that Biden is looking to serve the press corps and not everyday Americans, saying the press want mask and vaccine mandates. 例如, MSNBC’s Mika Brzezinski wondered, “Am I the only one that’s going to wear a mask now, even after the pandemic?”
“当然, on the COVID front, the constituency the 白色的房子 is really trying to serve is the press corps from day one of the pandemic,” Ingraham argued. “The press has urged lockdowns, 学校停课, 面具任务, any and all restrictions on our freedom. And now even as most Americans have moved on from COVID, they’re still pushing Biden for more isolation of the unvaccinated,” 英格拉汉说.
白宫新闻秘书 詹·普萨基（Jen Psaki） was asked Thursday why the Biden administration hasn’t opted for stronger COVID measures. She responded, “I would say that nothing is off the table – including domestic travel.”
英格拉汉说, “All actions are on the table. 考虑一下. Now what the media really want, and they always have wanted, is for us to look like Europe … Europe is quickly becoming its own COVID police state. Just yesterday, the Austrian government approved an extended 20-day nationwide lockdown … after they announced compulsory vaccinations for all. 与此同时, Germany is imposing its own strict lockdown for the unvaccinated, and leadership there wants universal mandatory vaccinations.”
“现在, with its dark history, Germany’s tactics would make the old fascist proud. And don’t think for a second that whoever is winding up Biden every morning wouldn’t do the same here with all these controls if they could. But thankfully, America has a constitution that protects individual liberty. We have states that value freedom over false promises of safety, and we have federal judges who are one by one halting Biden’s vaccine mandates.”
