White House chief of staff Mark Meadows on Monday tried to clean up his statement from Sunday in which he admitted the White House isn’t even trying to contain the novel coronavirus pandemic — but he wound up mocking Democratic nominee Joe Biden for wearing a face mask.

While meeting with reporters at the White House, Meadows tried to claim that the Trump administration has not, in fact, surrendered to the virus.

“The only person waving a white flag, as well as a white mask, is Joe Biden,” Meadows said. “When we look at this, we’re going to defeat the virus, we’re not going to control it, we will try to contain it as best we can, if you look at the full context of what I was talking about, is we need to make sure we have therapeutics and vaccines.”

During an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, Meadows explicitly said, “we’re not going to control the pandemic” before adding that “we are going to control the fact that we get vaccines, therapeutics and other mitigation.”

At the moment, there is no vaccine for the novel coronavirus, which so far has killed more than 220,000 Americans in just eight months. According to the COVID-19 Tracking Project, there have been an average of 68,954 infections per day over the past seven days, which is a record high in the United States.

He explained that the world had been subjected to Trump's "call to arms" for his supporters, seeking to overthrow the election and nullify the will of the people.

‘Book her on Jeanine Pirro’: Witness ridiculed after going viral during Giuliani’s Michigan hearing

Published

Rudy Giuliani's election fraud hearing went off the rails Wednesday evening as one woman monopolized the comments section with a series of rants.

“That poll book is off by 100,000!” claimed the woman. “Why don’t you look at the registered voters on there? … what was the turnout rate, 120 percent?”

Some speculated if the woman was intoxicated while others wondered if she'd been using Gov. Rick Perry's "smart glasses" as a talking stick. One Michigander explained, however, that some people in the state simply talk that way.

Published

The military spending bill is coming up for a vote in the "Lame Duck Session" but the two major things President Donald Trump wanted aren't happening now.

Oklahoma Sen. Jim Inhofe was walking through the halls of the U.S. Capitol with the president on speakerphone again, this time telling him the bad news about the bill. Inhofe was caught by reporters in a Capitol Hill restaurant several months ago loudly talking to Trump on a speakerphone. In that call, he promised Trump that there would not be name changes to Confederate bases.
