Thw laziest POTUS/VPOTUS in history. Not to mention incompetent.

And seriously!?! Andrew Cuomo, the killer of thousands in nursing homes and who has had many of his emergency powers taken away by the NY Legislature.


The phone calls come from inside the new administration, but the president is not on the line. In fact, Joe Biden has not dialed in to any of the weekly COVID-19 coordinating calls with the nation’s governors since he came into office, a sharp contrast with his predecessor and a break from last year’s pandemic ritual.
Every Tuesday, usually at 11 a.m. EST, all 50 governors dial in to the same conference call to coordinate federal and state responses to the coronavirus crisis. And until this past January, they heard each time from the vice president. Mike Pence, as head of the White House COVID task force, led those weekly discussions. Donald Trump dropped by from time to time. The calls continue under the current administration but without Biden. “It's been a real frustration, I think it's safe to say, for all 50 governors,” New Hampshire’s Chris Sununu told RealClearPolitics.
Of course, he appreciates hearing from Jeffrey Zients (pictured), the new White House COVID response coordinator, and from Dr. Anthony Fauci, the White House chief medical adviser. But Sununu told RCP, “It would go a long way if the president would just get on the phone, or the vice president would get on the phone and take questions. Allow us to ask the folks in charge questions.”
The Trump White House hosted a total of 40 COVID conference calls. Pence led 39 of them, according to that administration’s final COVID report first obtained by RCP. Trump participated in eight. Things are different now, said Pete Ricketts. “President Biden hasn’t been on any of them,” the Nebraska governor told RCP, “and Vice President Harris has only been on one, but that was for about five minutes and she didn’t take any questions.”
Andrew Cuomo now leads the calls as chairman of the National Governors Association. White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki explained that the New York governor was put in charge instead of the vice president because a change was needed. One of the reasons, Psaki told reporters in March, “is that there were operational aspects of the way the last administration approached COVID and approached the distribution of vaccines or approached planning and engagement with governors that wasn’t working.”

Another difference between the administrations: the role of the vice presidents. Pence was the leader of the COVID response team. Harris’ responsibilities are elsewhere, including, as Biden has explained, addressing “the root causes” of the southern border migrant crisis. As a result, the medical experts are the ones talking to the governors on the weekly call, not the politicians.

Oh and he fucking idiot Republicans who have not got the shot yet. What the fuck is wrong with you all?

There's really no need for that stuttering fuck and his whore VP to show up for COVID calls. Trump already took care of all that while he was President, and the current administration is just riding on his coat tails.

You sound like an extremely rude and disrespectful person. That usually comes from great unhappiness and insecurities. Is everything OK in your life?

Happy as a clam here. But I must admit that I get a kick out of how people can be rude and disrespectful when you tell them the truths they don't want to hear.

And what truth were you told that you didn’t want to hear that caused you to lash out so poorly?

"Lashing out" is something one does under stress or unusual circumstances. Referring to Biden/Harris as a "stuttering fuck and his whore" is merely something that nonchalantly rolls off the tongue during casual conversation.

Hell, everyone knows that by now. It's common knowledge.
