In separate remarks Thursday, Joe Biden and Kamala Harris made clear that the White House plans to double down on the failed policies that have led to an explosion of COVID-19 cases across the United States, and an increase in fatalities.
During a one-on-one interview with TODAY’s Craig Melvin, Harris was asked if the administration plans to change its strategy since what they’ve been doing—vaccine mandates, mask mandates, suppression of early treatments—is clearly not working.
“Six former administration officials wrote an open letter urging the administration to change course, to change strategy,” Melvin said. “Is it time?”
Judging from the word salad she served as her answer, Harris didn’t seem prepared for the question.
“It is time for us to do what we have been doing, and that time is every day,” she replied. “Every day it is time for us to agree that there are things and tools that are available to us to slow this thing down.”
Harris went on to suggest that the regime’s monumental failure to control the virus is due to the fact that millions of Americans have refused to be injected with the experimental vaccines.
“And so right now we know we still have a number of people that is in the millions of Americans who have not been vaccinated, and could be vaccinated, and we are urging them to get vaccinated because it will save their life,” she said.
When Melvin noted that the people who have not yet been vaccinated have no intention of getting the jab, Harris responded, “I don’t believe in giving up on people.”
Speaking at the fake White House set Thursday, Biden insisted that COVID remains “a pandemic of the unvaccinated.”
“I know we’re all frustrated as we enter this new year,” he acknowledged. Biden announced that starting next week 1,000 military medical personnel will begin deploying across the country to help medical facilities that are overwhelmed with Omicron cases due to staff shortages caused by his vaccine mandate.
At points during his remarks, Biden’s teleprompter appeared to malfunction.
“Now I don’t like to, uh, uh, you know, uh—outline the next steps we’re taking against, uh—I’d like to outline the next steps we’re taking against Ovi—uh the Omicron variant,” he stammered.

Biden announced that the regime will double the number of rapid, at-home COVID-19 tests to be distributed free to Americans, along with N95 masks.
“And to help lead our federal testing program, I’ve topped—excuse me!—I’ve tapped Dr. Tom In—I hope I’m pronouncing—Ing—Ingle—Inglesby. Correct? Is that right?” Biden floundered. “And he’s, ah, he’s one of the world’s leading infectious disease experts and I’m grateful for his willingness to help tackle this challenge.”
Joe Biden doesn’t even know how to pronounce the name of the guy leading his “testing program.”

When asked by TODAY host Craig Melvin if she and Biden plan to run for reelection in 2024, Harris sounded defensive, and had no firm answer.
“I’m sorry, we are thinking about today,” she replied after an awkward pause, going on to chide the reporter for asking such an impertinent question. “I mean honestly, we are—I know why you’re asking the question—this is the part of the punditry, the gossip around places like Washington Dc. Let me just tell you something. We’re focused on the things in front of us.”
