The Biden administration has pulled a big about-face and has pulled their mask requirements just hours before the State of the Union address.
I guess the “sCiEnCe” changed again, and now COVID is over, huh?
It’s certainly an odd move, especially when you consider how extreme their measures have been prior to this change, but surely this has more to do with optics than anything else.
It also has everything to do with Biden’s cratering poll numbers and the upcoming midterms.
Of course, Ted Cruz was one of the first ones to see through this charade.
And on the eve of Biden’s “SOTU” address, Ted was waiting there to drop a funny Curz Missile right on Joe’s shaky old head.
Ted shared a Fox News article about how Biden was dropping the mandate for Biden’s speech.
And I love what Ted said – so simple, but so snarky and really says it all…
“It’s a State of the Union miracle!
Yes indeed! 😂

Here’s more information on the White House revoking the mask requirement:
The White House will no longer require people who are vaccinated against COVID-19 to wear face masks on the premises, beginning Tuesday, March 1, a White House official told Fox News.
The lifting of the requirement will come just hours before President Biden is set to deliver his first State of the Union address before Congress.
The White House’s decision follows a similar one from Congress’ Office of the Attending Physician, who said that masks will be optional on the House floor for the president’s speech, likely avoiding the optics of masked lawmakers gathered for the event, two years into the coronavirus pandemic.
The nation’s capital is now in an area considered low risk under the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s new metrics, which place less of a focus on positive test results and more on what’s happening in community hospitals. The new system greatly changes the look of the CDC’s risk map and puts more than 70% of the U.S. population in counties where the coronavirus is posing a low or medium threat to hospitals. Healthy people in those risk areas can stop wearing masks indoors, the agency said.
Seems like rather convenient timing that suddenly the capital is now considered a “low risk” by the CDC.
It really is a miracle. 🙄
