Who does this bumbling buffoon think he is?
During his address to the nation, Joe Biden picked a new date for the goal posts on when ‘normalcy’ shall return.
It appears the 4th of July is now when Biden declares Americans sort of get their freedom back.
Take a look:
JULY FOURTH: President Biden: “If we do this together, by July the Fourth there’s a good chance you, your families and friends, will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day.” pic.twitter.com/HrYB9Fb8mV

Newsflash Sleepy Joe, we don’t need your permission to have a cookout with our family & friends.
On the 4th of July or whatever date.
This is a free country and you’re not everyone’s daddy.
We don’t need government approval to gather with loved ones.
Others expressed their outrage over Biden’s comments during his address:
Tucker big mad at Biden

Did you see Biden read from the teleprompter? He said he might let us get together in small gatherings on the 4th of July. Fuck him.

In case you missed it…
President Biden said if you keep your masks on and get vaccinated by May, you will have a semi-normal 4th of July.
Doesn’t that sound wonderful?

“And then to pick Independence Day as the day where he says he might allow people to gather is just so un-American” pic.twitter.com/iMHdMp2Llm

Remember, if we’re all vaccinated with an EXPERIMENTAL drug not approved by the FDA…..
Then, we can, hopefully, have a semi-normal 4th of July to celebrate our ‘kinda’ freedom.
Take a hike Sleepy Joe.
Or better, just go back to the basement like the entire election campaign.
Our 4th of July barbecues are going to be just fine regardless of what you say.
ABC News covered Biden’s semi-freedom decree to the peasants:
He also predicted a possible return to some semblance of normalcy by the Fourth of July and detailed several more measures aimed at speeding up vaccinations across the country.
It was the first prime-time address of his presidency, delivered from the White House’s East Room. It came the same day he signed a $1.9 trillion COVID-19 relief package into law, a major legislative victory, and several days before he planned to hit the road to pitch the law to Americans.
In his remarks, Biden said he was “announcing that I will direct all states, tribes and territories to make all adults, people 18 and over, eligible to be vaccinated no later than May 1.”
Senior administration officials told reporters earlier Thursday that Biden had the power to do so with powers through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services.
But Biden warned that this would not mean all Americans would have their shot on that day.
“It means you’ll be able to get in line beginning May 1,” he said.
While the federal government procures and distributes vaccine doses, states and other non-federal jurisdictions control eligibility for that supply. While many have largely followed federal guidance for the order in which to vaccinate different groups, there is still a patchwork of different eligibility guidelines that restrict who can receive it.
The president also set the Fourth of July as a new marker for the United States on the path to normalcy, saying that if people follow guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention — by wearing masks, socially distancing and getting vaccinated when possible.
“By July the 4th, there’s a good chance you, your families and friends, will be able to get together in your backyard or in your neighborhood and have a cookout or a barbecue and celebrate Independence Day,” he said.
But, he added, “large events with lots of people together” should still not take place.
“After this long hard year, that will make this Independence Day something truly special where we not only mark our independence as a nation but begin to mark our independence from this virus,” Biden said.
Ahead of Independence Day, the CDC planned to provide more guidance to Americans about traveling, small gatherings, going to work and houses of worship, a senior administration official said Thursday.
