Even Washington, D.C. is done with Biden’s COVID-19 drama as residents grow tired of lockdowns

After more than a year and a half, some blue state politicians are growing sick of the corner they’ve painted themselves into.

And, as Joe Biden’s popularity sinks in the polls, it’s increasingly clear many Democrats are no longer buying what he’s selling.

But the most awkward news comes from the city Biden temporarily calls home.

This week Washington, D.C.’s mayor announced that it will start lifting mask restrictions.

The White House quickly came back with a snippy response.

“The White House follows CDC guidance which recommends masking in areas of high or substantial transmission,” White House Assistant Press Secretary Kevin Munoz told Fox News.

“We are encouraged by the numbers that have opted into vaccination now, some of them encouraged by mandates,’ Bowser said. ‘There may even be an increase in cases . . . but what we haven’t seen is an increase in hospitalizations and deaths. That is the promise of vaccination.” Mayor Muriel Bowser is quoted as saying in a Daily Mail article.

The article went on to say, “Mayor Bowser has repeatedly described mask requirements as a sort of thermostat-style dial that can be turned up or down based on shifting conditions.”

The real question is whether the “heat” in Washington, D.C. has anything to do with Biden’s popularity.

Of course, as one of the bluest areas in the U.S., plenty of restrictions will remain in place even after the sweeping indoor mask mandate is lifted.

Private businesses can still require masks.

Of course, businesses always had the right to do that, but it probably boosts the politicians’ egos to think they are running the whole show.

Masks will also still be required for using public transportation, attending or working in schools, and inside childcare facilities.

They will also be required in shelters, dorms, nursing homes, and District of Columbia government buildings where employees work with the public directly.

It’s also likely the city will pursue a policy that creates two classes of citizens: the vaccinated and the unvaccinated.

Bowser mentioned on Twitter that, “risk levels will primarily be tied to a person’s vaccination status.”

But it’s still significant to have COVID-19 hysteria turned down a notch right at Biden’s front door.

According to BizPac Review, the District of Columbia is one of the last areas in the U.S. to officially loosen up on mask mandates.

The six states that still have sweeping mandates, which include private businesses include: Hawaii, Illinois, Nevada, New Mexico, Oregon, and Washington.
