“It was true at the time.”
The President is finding himself in more situations where he has to explain his administration’s flip-flop on vaccines and mask mandates. Fox News’ Peter Doocy pressed Biden about the issue, and it didn’t go so well.
DOOCY: “You said if you are fully vaccinated, you no longer need to wear a mask.”
BIDEN: “That was true at the time… What happened was the new variant came along. They didn’t get vaccinated… More people were getting sick.”
BIDEN: “Because I thought there were people that were going to understand that getting vaccinated made a dramatic difference and what happened was the new variant came along, they didn’t get vaccinated, it spread more rapidly, and more people were getting sick.”
“That’s the difference,” Biden added before walking away.
