Joe Biden's COVID face mask trick play
By Ayad Rahim
The Democrats are running a trick play. On the face of it, the play looks like a Hail Mary, but the outcome of this trick play is already known.
To contrast themselves to the evil Donald Trump, who did everything wrong and caused half a million Americans to die, the Democrats must do the opposite. The most obvious "opposite" is the face mask. We're the good and caring people: we wear the masks â€” unlike those uncaring Trumpists, who don't.
So when Joe Biden was "campaigning" for the presidency, he said he would issue a hundred-day national mandate to wear a face mask. When he took office, he did just that.
What happens after 100 days?
VoilÃ : the problem is solved. The new administration and the Democrats will take credit for ending the "pandemic"; people can get back to normal life (well, maybe a new normal); everybody will be happy; and Joe Biden can take a victory lap around the world.
