Biden’s COVID Doc Calls Mask Ruling ‘Deeply Disappointing,’ Admin Weighing Appeal

The White House’s top COVID response coordinator, Ashish Jha, MD, who has turned himself into a TV star since COVID rolled into town, is having trouble processing this whole new world where a federal airplane mask mandate is history.

Jha called decision by a Trump-appointed federal judge “disappointing” and said the courts should have given CDC scientists 15 more days to make their own “data-driven durable decision.”

But in a bold move, President Biden’s top COVID doc won’t say that the administration should appeal the court’s decision.

Meanwhile, Little Red Lying Hood Jen Psaki said the administration is still calling on Americans who have long ago moved on from the pandemic to follow COVID guidance from the CDC. “We’re continuing to encourage people to wear masks,” Psaki said Tuesday aboard Air Force One.

Then, when Air Force One landed, President Biden was asked whether Americans should keep wearing masks on planes.

“It’s up to them,” the President told reporters.

Psaki says the decision to appeal is now up to the Justice Department. “Public health decisions shouldn’t be made by the courts. They should be made by public health experts,” Jen added.

The President says one thing. The press secretary says another. Imagine that. Another day of the Biden presidency.
