When Joe Biden announced his mandate many believe is unconstitutional, many governors immediately pushed back. Most Republican states promised they would not obey his demands. And some have already said they would see him in court.
But one governor is shedding more light on the controversy.
Biden is trying to push a mandate that violates Americans’ liberties and robs states of their power. It’s questionable how he can even enforce it.
Governor Ricketts is exposing just how ignorant Biden is of the situation on the ground. He’s clueless because he’s been completely MIA. From The Daily Wire:
Nebraska Governor Pete Ricketts slammed President Joe Biden…
“…the president should look at the data and maybe the president should attend one of the weekly calls his administration has with all the governors — he’s not been on one yet since he’s been president — and maybe talk to some of the governors and ask them about what’s going on in their states, because he appears to be pretty ignorant of what’s going on in places like Nebraska.”
At the start of last year, the Trump administration set up weekly calls with governors to address the ongoing crisis. It was a vital link between the president and state leaders. But Pete Ricketts revealed something shocking.
Joe Biden hasn’t been on a single call with governors since entering office.
How can Biden push a radical mandate without even knowing what is going on around the country? We’ve often criticized Biden for how out-of-touch he seems. But this is going much too far.
Biden must be just glancing at CDC data without even processing it. He clearly isn’t discussing the situation with governors and other state leaders. Yet he feels confident that his gross overstepping of presidential authority is justified?
This is the very thing Americans warned about during the election last year. Biden was promising this kind of behavior. He seems to disregard the concerns of other leaders. And he isn’t even looking at the data.
And don’t think Biden is in talks with these leaders at other times. Texas Gov. Abbott previously revealed his office reached out to Biden (and Harris) often over the border crisis. Not once did the administration bother to respond.
Maybe old Joe should actually talk with our governors first, before shooting his mouth off at them?
- Pete Ricketts blasted Biden over his mandate and lack of transparency.
- Ricketts revealed Biden has not been on one of the governor calls since January.
- This comes as Biden pushes an unconstitutional mandate.
