Conservative critics have continued to question who is calling the shots at the White House. While speaking in Maryland on Thursday, Joe Biden made a series of bizarre comments as he announced his five-step winter COVID-19 plan. His remarks came after he met with world class scientists and health bureaucrats behind closed doors.
Biden’s latest COVID-19 plan includes building family vaccination centers, pushing booster shots and apparently lots of phone calls to Americans. After having trouble naming CVS Pharmacy, Biden then falsely claimed rapid COVID-19 home tests weren’t on the market before he took office.
Biden has developed a reputation for rocky press conferences with false statements and abrupt endings, which has prompted conservative critics like Sen. James Risch (R-Idaho) to question who is really calling the shots. Meanwhile, Biden made a joke about Dr. Anthony Fauci being commander-in-chief.

Shortly after this, Rep. Jim Jordan (R-Ohio) pointed out Dr. Fauci does seem to have complete authority over Biden. The Republican lawmaker warned that because not a single American voted to elect Fauci as a leader, for many this is not a joke but a nightmare.
Real America is done with #COVID19.
The only people who don’t understand that are Fauci and Biden.
