The presidential puppet of the United States is calling on all state leaders to continue with, or reinstate mask mandates.
On Monday, Joe Biden gave a press conference where he addressed state leadership directly.
He spoke directly to state leaders across the US:
“I’m reiterating my call to every governor, mayor, and local leader to maintain and reinstate the mask mandate.”

He then alleged that this was not a political issue, saying:
“Please, this is not politics.”
“Reinstate the mandate if you let it down.”
Biden, who sounds more exhausted everyday, implored all Americans to mask up.

While Biden makes his demands about mask mandates, the "neanderthal thinking" that he accused Texas governor Greg Abbott of weeks ago appears to have paid off.
Texas is two weeks removed from ending covid restrictions, and cases in the state have dropped for the 17th consecutive day.
Fox News has more on this not-so-surprising turn of events in the Lone Star State:
Just over two weeks after Texas Gov. Greg Abbott lifted coronavirus mandates allowing businesses to operate at 100 percent capacity and made masks optional, the red state is still reporting decreases in cases and hospitalizations.
The governor championed his state’s success in a Friday night tweet saying, "Today Texas recorded the lowest 7-day COVID positivity rate since that data began being calculated: 5.43%."
"We also recorded the largest daily number of vaccines administered to Texans: 342,849. More Texans getting vaccines will keep down the positivity rate," he said, though adding that receiving the vaccine was "always voluntary."
Texas reported 2,239 new infections Saturday, roughly 500 fewer cases on average from the previous week, according to data from the state’s health department.
Biden slammed Abbott's decision -- which was shortly followed by similar mandate removals by Mississippi -- as "Neanderthal thinking."
"We've been able to move that all the way up to the end of May to have enough [vaccines] for every American, to get every adult American to get a shot," Biden told reporters from the White House earlier this month. "The last thing we need is the Neanderthal thinking."
Biden, democrats, and the fake news media have claimed that mask mandates aren't political, instead claiming that leaders like Abbott are the ones playing politics.
Free thinking conservatives disagree.
