    Biden had to give his Son’s business partners a heads up so they could get to the US before the restrictions kicked in.

    Why would they need to come to the US?

    He was (is) a bigot. So it was fair to call some of his travel restrictions bigoted, because they were.

    But Democrats didn’t call the Covid travel restrictions racist or bigoted.

    Now - do you agree with Biden’s most recent Covid-related travel restrictions?

    No - the opinion of one person is not the opinion of a whole group of which that person might or might not be a member.

    The lie doesn’t become true just because you repeat it.

    You might want to repeat that to yourself, because that's how we feel. At the time during the 2020 elections(to put context, Trump had just released the expanded list related to the virus, so you can take that talking point out), that is exactly what Biden said, and more importantly: What has his "plan" been since becoming President? Trying his best at being an authoritarian about our health decisions, and flopping miserably in the courts.

    So by Biden's OWN words, he is the worst possible person to handle this crisis.

    Here's some humor which might be lost in this scary new story

    SNIP
    Former White House advisor Stephen Miller claimed that there would already be updated COVID-19 vaccines to deal with the Omicron variant if Donald Trump were still president today.

    "If President Trump was still in office, by the way, we'd already have modified vaccines to deal with the new variant," Miller said, speaking to Sean Hannity on Friday night.
    ENDSNIP

    https://www.yahoo.com/news/former-white-house-advisor-says-133314645.html

    If the Grifter in Chief was still in office, he would be going back and forth between calling it the Zulu variant and the Comic-Con variant...

    Besides Miller being FOS about already having modified vaccines, since most of the people still hesitant to take the original vaccines are T**** supporters, why would anybody think they'd take some modified vaccine??

    Yeah, really shitty job here

    https://federalnewsnetwork.com/work...e-with-vaccine-mandate-as-enforcement-begins/

    The Private Business/100 employee version is going to be harder, but many of the larger companies are doing it on their own anyway. Hopefully, there will be a complete list of companies that refuse to insist on a mandate on their own (or a list of those who do mandate, and we can assume on the others - either way works for me)... The public has a right to know...

    Well, the vaccine that lefties are begging folks to take was made under Trump so why would this be far fetched?

    Why do liberals always refuse to acknowledge their past positions when they think those positions will expose an hypocrisy? Oh wait. I just answered that in the question.

    Uh, because it took most of a year to develop a vaccine against the original virus... and Herr Goebbels wants us (you!) to believe somebody can make one that will work against a variant that was discovered a week ago??

    It's always possible the labs are tweaking their vaccines for future possible uses, but no manufacturer will claim it will "deal with the new variant" until they try it out... only idiot politicians and their idiot mouthpieces...

    The vaccine made under Trump is FDA approved. I remember when some said it came out too fast and now lefties are begging everyone to take it. Looks like Trump was correct. What has Biden done besides his Xenophobic moves?

    LOL... how was T**** "correct"?... he pushed for rapid vaccine development (after a couple of months of flat out denial), as absolutely EVERY POTUS in history would have done...

    Did he also call the universe a big place??

    Biden got those shots into arms and is helping to move it worldwide...and making big time plans to treat the holdouts appropriately...

    There is a part of me that agrees, but as was pointed out 2 years ago, it would not be acceptable to leave American citizens and residents stranded. So I think the solution is a 14 day quarantine. What we have to ensure, though, is that the quarantine is followed. Canada made people stay in a designated hotel so that they could be monitored.

    100%

    Just what I posted about Israel, although it's 3 days for vax and 7 for unvax... You think that's long enough?

    Actually when I read your post I thought it should be 14 days for both. We know that this evades vaccines, so the vaccinated should be treated the same as unvaccinated.

    When Biden says Trump is against black and brown people immigrating here because of the travel ban, is Biden accusing Trump of being racist and/or a bigot, yes or no?

    I'm sorry, but were those Jan 2020 African countries a COVID travel ban??

    Nobody was saying that at the time...

    SNIP
    The administration has argued that the ban, enacted in 2017 to restrict travel from Muslim-majority countries, is necessary to ensure that countries satisfy security requirements for travel into the United States, or face restrictions until they do.

    Officials with the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department who briefed reporters on the condition of anonymity said Eritrea, Tanzania and Kyrgyzstan were being added to the list because each country had either had not satisfied the administration’s information-sharing requirements related to terrorism or did not have updated passport systems.

    But before the announcement on Friday, an American government official said the administration planned to add Nigeria and Tanzania to the list because of the number of people coming from those countries on a visa who end up staying in the United States illegally.

    I think you guys are comparing apples and 5 irons here... as usual...

    Pretty obvious the T**** administration saw an opportunity to toss in some more African countries at the same time the necessary China restrictions were put in...

    Let's go back to the claim being argued:

    Hey, AJ wasn't asking what KIND of bans, just that Trump making them was racist. I'm also skeptical about these anonymous sources. AND a link behind a paywall? Now you KNOW where that's headed, EB ... !

    But let's assume that the NYT actually told the truth for once since the '80s. Banning trips because of terrorist threats/non-compliance with the law regarding same/passport issues? Heck, that seems like an even BETTER call to me now.!

    I see all the freaking out over this variant, but nothing on how sick it makes people. Finally saw this:

    South African governmental adviser Professor Barry Schoub has described the Omicron symptoms as “mild” for “the great majority of the patients” infected with the new Covid-19 strain. “Their symptoms were so different and so mild from those I had treated before,” South African Medical Association chair Dr. Angelique Coetzee told The Telegraph on Saturday.

    That's great news if it turns out to be true for the majority. And I agree that there is no need for freaking out about something that is no more serious than the flu. We'll have to wait and see, but I'll remain hopeful.

    What do you make of the fact that “Omicron” is an anagram of “moronic”?

    I see that Biden The Demented just got busted violating another Mask Mandate. I'd find these liars more believable if they practiced what they preach.
