Could anyone defend such a comment?

The new normal might not be the same as we used to, but many believe that it is high time we did something to return things to the way they were.

The Republican governors of Texas and Mississippi agree with this, so in the past week. They announced they were lifting all COVID-19 restrictions, in an attempt to finally get life back to normal.

However, Biden strongly disapproved of it. During a meeting in the Oval Office on Wednesday, he claimed that this move is “a big mistake” and “Neanderthal thinking.”

He said:

 “Look, I hope everybody’s realized by now, these masks make a difference. We are on the cusp of being able to fundamentally change the nature of this disease because of the way with which we’re able to get vaccines in people’s arms. We’ve been able to move that all the way up to the end of May to have enough for every American, to get every adult American to get a shot.

The last thing, the last thing we need is Neanderthal thinking that in the meantime, everything is fine, take off your masks, forget it. It still matters.”

Mississippi Gov. Tate Reeves responded on Twitter, writing:

 “Mississippians don’t need handlers. As numbers drop, they can assess their choices and listen to experts. I guess I just think we should trust Americans, not insult them.”

Texas Gov. Greg Abbott responded to the President’s insult, expressing his displeasure:

“First, it obviously is not the type of thing that a president should be saying. But, second, he kind of said it on the worst day he could have, because the same day he said that in Texas, the Biden administration was releasing illegal immigrants into our communities who had COVID.”

For years, Biden has been prone to gaffes and slip-ups in both formal and informal situations for years, making it extremely hard for his staffers to somehow defend him or admit to an error.

Therefore, on Thursday, during a media briefing, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked:

 “Does the president have any second thoughts about the language that he used yesterday? And how does comparing someone to a ‘Neanderthal’ help convince them to change course and get on board with your public health message?”

She attempted to explain:

“The behavior of a Neanderthal, just to be very clear. The behavior of.”

She continued that Biden’s exclamation was “a reflection of his frustration and exasperation, which I think many American people have, that for almost a year now, people across the country have sacrificed and, many times, they haven’t had the information they need from the federal government.”

She said:

“They haven’t had access to a greater understanding of what the public health guidelines should look like. And those include many, many people in Mississippi, in Texas, in Ohio, Florida, and every state across the country.” Americans are helpless without specific guidance from the federal government.

According to Psaki, the result of this alleged dearth of information is the “Neanderthal behavior” of governors who allow Americans to make their own choices on how to protect themselves from the coronavirus.

Reeves suggested that the Biden administration, therefore, thinks you need a handler.

To conclude, “Neanderthal behavior” is not at all distinct from “Neanderthal thinking.”

Yet, Biden and Psaki can claim that they are referring to policies rather than people all they want, but the fact is that they maintain that the desire for a normal life, free from government-imposed coronavirus restrictions, is the same as acting like a Neanderthal.

I don’t believe they consider it good either.

Biden believes we are all small children in need of strict rules from our benevolent government in order to survive in this big, scary world.
